    I always wanted long nails

    since i was little. i thought they were cool haha. Maybe i was just weird. I didn't like the process of acrylic nails... They grow long really fast and a lot of people comment on how my nails are gross just because they are longer than theirs. It's not like they're so long they...

    Always Had Them Long!!!

    I've had my nails long for about 20 years now, I used to bite them as a child, but once they started to grow I just left them to it!I find it annoying when one breaks, especially if it's one of the longer ones, but I've never been tempted to cut them all to the same length and...

    The Beginning...

    I am a 29-year-old chap, my pinky nails are longer than 20 cm and the others are beyond 10. I was 5, when I noticed that my mom omits my pinky nails from cutting. She explained me just in order to have "moody" cat nails when I entered the school. And really, they were...

    I Don't Glam It Up Though

    - I have nails that grow long and hard fast. I keep hearing how some have a hard time typing with long nails. With me it is opposite. I make more typos when I have short nails. I guess my nails grip the keys like claws or something. I don't get into polishing, studding, filing...

    Long Nails And The Pinky Even Longer

    I always have long fingernails that are manicured and polished in wild colors. I've had them as long as having more free edge than nail bed, of course that makes typing difficult and I wouldn't be able to make a fist. Usually I keep them as long as I can without them making...

    I love the noise from using my nails to tap

    objects like keyboards and on my phone screen I love spending time painting my nails and keeping them healthy But the main reason I have long nails is I love to scratch

    Stop Growing!!

    I neglect to cutting them and they eventually grow. Too fast!! I keep trying to tell them, but they don't listen, just keep on growing. I know I'm going to have to cut them eventually, but I like them the way they are at the moment. Problem is, they keep breaking off. i'll look...

    Why Must It Always Be A Problem?

    I have been told repeatedly that many women would covet my nails and the speed at which they grow. Although the appearance of my nails doesn't matter to me, they're quite useful (for opening old containers and such)... but I'm a guy. People nearest to the general location of my...

    French Acrylic.

    They are a touch longer then the ones in the group picture. I have them because I love the look of long nails but due to varies reasons my real nails are as thin as paper and snap before they have any real length on them. - RDW

    I LOVE LONG NAILS, BUT IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO TYPE

    One of the few beauty pleasures I induldge in, is long nails.  I just love them!  And they are no problem in anything I do in life, except they slow me down on the computer.  That annoys me.  Normally, without nails, I type 80 wpm.  Now, with long...

    They Grow Quickly

    I don't get them done anymore, they just grow. I keep them a bit shorter these days because of my 2 year old, I don't want to scratch her. When I was younger I would pay tons of money getting wraps that would only wreck them. I remember when I soaked the wraps off...the damage...

    I've Always Had Long Nails

    I even had somewhat long nails when I was a kid! I never grow them so long that they look like talons though. I don't find that as nice. Long, but not excessively long, is the perfect length for me. I have no problems with them and I only sometimes break the thumb nails and...

    Sometimes

    I usually keep my nails long, but if I break one, I cut them all short and start over. I enjoy long nails, but not crazy-scary long.
