    Nails Always Short

    Short Nails For Typing

    I type for a living, so I have to keep mine fairly short.  Just past the end of my fingers is long enough.  I have to be able to touch the keys with my fingers.  I have tried it with longer nails but my fingers get very sore from all that abuse, and I make a lot...

    Bad Habit

    They're short because I bite my nails. It's weird, people assume I'm always nervous or something, but it's just a habit. I bite them all the time. Plus, long nails creep me out. I think it's kind of gross.

    Short Toe Nails

    As I was growing up, I used to leave my nails slightly long. When I started wearing stockings and pantyhose, my mother would buy them for me. At first she was buying the type with reinforced toes for me to keep them from getting runs. But I kept getting them in the toe area so...

    I bite my nails ever since a child. Adults busted my ovaries for it. Front teeth are capped. Now my nails get bitten off all messed up. Yet, I still bite them off all the same.
