I like to keep my nails shorter, I have slim fingers and the shape my nails have look good. Keeping them short keeps them in better health and they're easier to maintain. Long nails get dirty very quickly and start turning yellow which is really gross, plus when most women have "long" nails it's usually fake nails and those completely jack up the natural nail. I'd rather have cute shorter nails than ripped up, rough freaky nails underneath some plastic.
i prefer long nails but i hafta be careful i dont scratch anyone (or myself) xD i usuallt keep mt nails short tho cuz theyre easier to manage. i like how long nails feel tho, like when im scratching my head or legs *awkward* lol
