    Sensible

    I guess if you don't type all day long, long nails are nice. But it hurts when they break, so mine are short. Less maintenance, and less bother. There I go being sensible again.

    JUST Because

    My nails actually grow very strong, long and perfectly shaped. I know many people who pay to have theirs done and get the acrylics and such. My issue is that I'm always on the go and work with my hands a lot. Between the computer, changing diapers/clothing for the kids and...

    Easier

    I've had long nails for a long time but cut them short a couple of months ago and I like it so much better. It's easier to do almost everything with short nails.

    Another One of My Preferences With Women

    Ah-hem . . .  Sorry to butt in on your party, girls.  I'd just like to state that I like women who keep their nails short, too.  Those long ones, covered in nail-polish, have never done it for me.  That's all I wanted to say.  I'll let you get back to...

    I Perfer Short Nails

    I have a perference for short nails because it looks better. Also, long nails is an invitation for dirt to sprawl underneath them, and it is disgusting. I always cut them when it grows longer.

    Yay For Short Nails. :)

    I have short nails, it's a habit developped from playing piano for over 12 years.. the sound of nails clacking on piano keys is rather painful =/ Also, it is so much easier to maintain! More comfortable too.

    Brittle Nails

    On Myself

    I love long nails on both guys and girls but I bite mine. It's a lifelong habit I've had. But here and there in the past I have gotten acrylic nails and enjoyed their beauty. It makes a big difference. But they end up bothering me and I want them off.

    Yes, I'm not Elvira, not interested in scratching someone or something from a distance of 2 feet. Besides, I scratched my son once when he was a baby, while bathing him, the guilt got me to clip clip clip immediately!!! You know how much crap can linger under fingernails...

    It's Easier to Type

    Like most of us I spend all day at my keyboard and it's just easier to type with short nails.  I sometimes see women with very long sexy nails and am amazed that the can type as fast as they can with them.

    Natural Is Best.

    I use to wear long azz acrylic tips with all kinds of designs starting way back from the 80's on. I hate long fingernails--they are so tacky, ancient and nasty. I always kept mines clean--that was imperative for me. I can type better without nails, also I don't like my own...

    Yep

    I never liked long nails. I have the feeling they can scratch my eyes out with them. And if they’re way too long it looks just straight ugly. And anyway how do they operate with them?

    Nails

    I like medium long nails especially the square cut.  Unfortunately, my nails tend to chip quite alot even when I use nail strenghter.  I prefer having short nails, it is easier and neater (for me).
