    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...

    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 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...

    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...
