My daughter had nails done to help her get over her nail biting habit (didnt work) and to look decent at a job interview.

Personally for my lifestyle they wouldnt work. I know I would get them caught up somewhere.

Men with long nails....bleh nasty

I wonder why some men have long fingernails,I have seen a few in my time,

Could be they play guitar, maybe? Fingernails instead of using a plectrum?

Re: False Nails.

I also used to wear lash extensions, because I liked the look of them on a friend, you had them infilled every two weeks, I lasted 3 months with them, they are permanently stuck on to your own eyelashes, with glue, by a beautician ,they drove me crazy,they fell off naturally, another thing with them, you can end up losing your own eyelashes, the glue made my eyes itch like Henry, Iíve left vanity at home ,it can cost you dearly...I only wear lipstick now, and tinted moisturiser , I canít stand thick make up.

ST, I used to permanently wear nail varnish on my toenails,I think thatís how I ended up with fungal toenails, as my nails couldnít breath,

They are what you have for a normal size length.
As for gardening with them. I do my garden and 2 others plus another as and when needed. Nothing destroys them.
What you need to know is that there are different salons. Most use cheaper products. You have to find one that uses good quality glues etc.
Petra, if they make you happy, it doesnít matter what others think,

Anyway, there was this bloke I fancied something rotten, and he was there that night. We were all talking (shouting over the music) and laughing at something he'd said - I affectedly put my hand on his shoulder as I laughed (come on, I was 17, cut me some slack!), and three of my white painted false nails came off, clinging to his purple mohair sweater. OMG, how embarrassing! All my friends were convulsed with laughter as I crept around behind him trying to retrieve them without him realising


😂🤣😅....that brought back memories,when I used to wear false eyelashes, I was kissing a boyfriend,one of them fell off!!....😂🤣😅

I have a short/medium length as it suits my lifestyle. See picture attached.

You have beautiful nails,Minx, personally,I think they would look nicer with a natural nail varnish....that pink covers up the beauty of the nails, just my opinion,

Re: False Nails.

One other fashion I loathe is the one where the nails are squared off and just the tips painted white - looks revolting!
