    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...

    Nails Always Short

    I can't stand to have my fingernails long. It just bothers me when my fingernails and toenails grow. Stuff gets under my nails and that's why it bothers me. I always keep fingernail clippers close by. I always take clippers on a vacation. Now, I have to keep them short. I have a...

    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...

    Have No Choice

    For two reasons:  They don't grow well, they are very soft.  I can't afford to get manicures right now.  Since, I am going into the medical profession, short nails are more practical and professional.  Long nails tear fragile skin and poke holes in latex...

    Way More Practical..

    First of all I hate typing with long fingernails, my fingers have to touch the keys, not only the nails! Apart from that it's not handy at all to have long nails when you want to play the guitar or play the piano. And last but not least I always end up with a my nails looking...

    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.

    I do keep it hidden, because not everyone gets my sense of humor, or how I entertain dark thoughts towards others almost unconciously.

    Why tell people how you feel when they will end up judging you? It's simpler to keep your emotions and opinions to yourself.
