I'm guilty of sometimes forgetting to cut them, so they get pretty long.

But on the bright side I don't bite them, and they always look pretty clean and nice, it's just that they look really ridiculous.

It's a first for me to hear someone find their fingernails rather appetizing x) lol

I'd like to hear more people's opinion on this.

I tend to let mine grow a bit, if I cut my nails too short they tend to be uncomfortable and I do find them more useful with a bit of length. I keep them clean too, of course (they tend to be naturally clean, just doing dishes tends to be enough without needing extra effort). I don't like to let them get too long though, I worry about scratching people by accident.

It seems a bit odd to make snap judgements about someone because of the length of their fingernails. Maybe it does say something about them but it might not be saying what you think and it certainly doesn't say everything. I guess that applies to anything really. I wonder if people really are so quick to judge or if it's a matter of being prompted ("now that you've mentioned it, it does look like...").

That pictures looks exactly like my fingernails right now, haha. But, I dunno, I think I like them better short.

I just bite my nails off so I'll usually have nails longer than the other. It's nasty as fuck but I really just don't want to take the time to cut them.

I like to keep mine short because I play basketball. I literally have scratch marks from other players since they don't keep their nails short.

All the better to feel you with?

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned false nails, because they neutralize many of the cons of having long, natural nails. Very convenient.

Also, long nails aren't necessarily bad in combat. Just use them as claws, if they're strong enough (healthy nails are). Clawed gauntlets and neko-te utilize the idea. A former classmate of mine once had her face clawed by her older sister in a fight. It took over a month for the damage to fully heal.

I have very long nail-beds, but I try to cut the actual nails every two weeks

As long as the fingernails are clean, I suppose, but then I'm a guy so I can't tell what girls think

I have to keep long fingernails to learn classical guitar. But then when I need to focus on learning a piano piece and the nails bug me, I trim them off temporarily.

You don't know how much I can relate to this, this is so true. I swear I almost got my eye gauged out a couple of times.

No, they get in the way, especially for basketball. Even when they're a little long one bad contact and that shit is gonna chip or bend and it hurts like SHIT and you get a ugly ass looking bruise underneath.

I've honestly never seen a guy with long fingernails or, at least, I never paid enough attention to notice. My boyfriend likes to keep his nails short and doesn't understand why a majority of girls want long nails or purposely grow their nails long.
