Do you prefer long or short nails?


I have recently began growing my nails. As a lifetime biter, I have been used to the shortness, but I like the look of longer nails. As they are growing, I am noticing that I dont like the feeling of them against objects. Is the discomfort worth it? Are long nails better?

    Thanks! Great answer! I am in a similar situation, and have bitten my nails since childhood. I just like the ability to use nail polish without covering my fingertips!

    Thanks! Yeah, I'm still trimming mine down now and then... Usually when they get so long to start snapping themselves. I'm loving all the nail art options I have now!

    I'm scared of breakages!! I know what you mean about doing things... How women with inch long nails can function is beyond me!
