I just noticed how long and dirty my finger nails were, I had to get a nail-cutter. Do you cut your nails frequently? Good day

Hi, danoluma. No. I don't cut my fingernails. I usually will bite them. They may also chip on their own, but I don't clip my fingernails. I do clip my toenails every two weeks. I have a few cousins that have long nails and they are men. I guess they like having long fingernails.

I usually cut my fingernails every month because i want my nails to be long.. hehe but my mother always reminds me to cut it.. hehe it is not appopriate for boys to lengthen his fingernails. also i don't like long fingernails it is so haste when i write letters it is very difficult to write when you have long nails so i prefer to cut them before they get longer enough to scratch me...

I cut my nails once a week. I don't have long nails cause i have lots of typing jobs in office. My nails doesn't get too dirty all the time because I wash it with soap and water every now and then.

I cut my nails (with my teeths) each time I'm nervous, but I don't eat them. That's to say once in a while, especially when there's a soccer competition with my favourite team. I know it's not a good thing to do but I can't help it and by the way I really don't care so much. Ciao!

About once a week. My nails took around one to two week to grow into irritating state (where they start to accumulate dirt) I rather keep my nails short and trim. I tend to scratch myself easily. It's easier to avoid such thing from happening if they're short. Plus, long fingernails are hard to maintain.

once a week!I can stand looking my finger nails keep growing longer and longer. I need to cook everyday so i need to make sure my fingers are clean by wash them with soap frequently.It is not a good habit to let it grow longer more than 40 days.:)

I cut my nails every time it looks like so irritating because of dirt. And also when I'm doing my clinical duties in the hospital. Based on our lecture before our nails grow 1 millimeter everyday. Just want to share it, God bless.

Hi, Actually i feel bore to cut my nails.But when ever i feel that they are long i immediately cut them.Because i don't like long nails.So,there is no fix schedule to cut the nails.

I usually cut my nails fairly regularly, as I don't really like it, when they get really long. I prefer to keep my nails short.

about a week or as soon as they look long to me, i don't like seeing my nails grow longer a slight visibility of growth if i have time i clip them right away. i need to maintain a short fingernail for typing faster and playing the guitar smoother.

I clip mine once a month. They grow very fast. And dirt makes them grow even faster I think, like feeding plants fertilizer.lol
