    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...

    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.

    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...
