    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.

    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...

    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...
