They really slow down my piano playing, and my typing, for that matter, and they severely interfere with frisbee playing, whenever I do it these days, and rock climbing.

Interesting, I've never had any troubles with any of those activities- rather the opposite, I have troubles doing some everyday-activities without my long nails. (I admit that It has been years since I last played piano, though... And I never did it on the professional level.)

 

Frisbee and rock-climbing I can somewhat understand, though- if you have weaker nails which tend to break. But typing? huh.gif

I am a fairly fast typer and I type a lot myself- therefore I can say that my nails don't bother my typing the least.

Furthermore, I would either have to lift up my entire hand off the table or hold my fingers halfway curled up into fist to have the nail/the very end of the fingertip to even touch the keys. (Both of which would be very uncomfortable and tiring for the hands; certainly not something which I could keep up in the duration of several dozen pages in a run.)

I don't like nails that are really short - I think they look a little bit bizarre.

Of course, long nails can be creepy. Personally, I just grow my nails until they tear naturally, then I file them so they look okay.

To keep my nails short, I obviously have to cut them.

 

I'm bad at cutting nails, and they end up looking ragged. DX

Short. Long fingernails get in the way of typing.

Yeah, I prefer medium length, so I voted for short. I don't like them too long since mine break easily, but I don't want them so short that they serve no purpose either.

I prefer short, just because I play piano and type. And they're harder to keep clean when they're long.

Haven't still figured out how fingernails, if they are not over a centimeter long, can get in the way of typing. tongue.gif

Long fingernails enable me to do science practicals better. I can peel, open or tear things. Also ideal for scratching itchy parts of my body and scrubbing my head during baths. Its a pity if my nails are long, I cannot wear contact lenses. sad.gif

Short. I'm a pianist so short nails are a must. I'm also a scientist and wear latex gloves daily, so short nails are a must so the gloves don't rupture.

don't want short. but not really a long nail person. somewhere in between, i think. i basically just let 'em grow and trim the sides at an angle and even them out when they break. all nails the same length, i do not have. lol

I prefer long but whenever they start getting long they always break off. I'm hard on my hands.

^ This.

 

Anyway, I hate bitten nails. Whenever I see someone nibbling away at their bitten down nails I always have to fight the urge to slap their hand away from their mouth.

OH GOD

*hides*

 

 

 

I prefer short. My nails are so bitten down it can be painful sometimes, but I just can't help it. ;_;

I bite my nails.

 

I have tried to wear fake nails but they are too long. I cant zip things, or grab things or even itch my eye with fake nails.

 

I always get them caught or rip them or scratch myself. I would rather I didnt bite my nails so they actually looked nice. But Id still keep them short.

I usually keep mine short because I am extraordinarily clumsy and I tend to stab myself with them. However I'll go through phases when I want them long. I cut them off as soon as I get annoyed with myself over the stabbing though. xd.png

I prefer to keep them short. It's easier for my job, where I often have to lift some very heavy things. And it can be painful and/or annoying if a nail breaks. mad.gif

I like to keep my nails longer; they help me push buttons, pry things open, etc. And I personally just like the look. I'm so vain about my nails. X]

I'm actually really weird about keeping my nails short. I don't go more than a couple days at a time without clipping them. Makes it hard to pry things open sometimes, though, and it hasn't helped me stop biting them, unfortunately.

 

I kept my nails long for a while in my teens, when I was in my femme period. Used to paint them a lot. I cut them short when I started playing guitar, and even though I don't play much these days, I haven't let them grow in probably a good six years, now.

Not quite short, but not long.

 

Slightly less than medium length.

Short. Having talon-length nails is just useless beyond all belief, no matter the person.

 

Though for myself, I keep them fairly short for many reasons. Recently kicked my biting habit, but my nails still remain weak because of many years of gnawing. Even if I wanted longer nails, they simply won't grow long enough. They get to a certain length before flaking and peeling or simply snapping off. Yeah.

They last a little longer if painted, but still.

I've got such nubby nails. >w> Just trimmed em down today, actually....
