Time To Trim My Nails

Preston, England

I was thinking my fingernails are getting a little long and maybe in need of trimming or cutting back Then I saw this Youtube on the lady with the longest nails in the world, and realized I have a long way to go. What she has is frankly ridiculous. Her nails look like ribbon trails and she could take on Freddy Kruger, Edward Scissorhands and Wolverine with them.

@arthurchappell She surely cannot do any kind of work with those nails. I see no interest in something like this.

@db20747 toenails that long would be worse. You couldn't get shoes on and you'd be tripping up a lot

I saw a woman on Guinness Book Of World Records once with rolled up nails, they were so long. Mine get long and I have to clip them a bit so I can type. Not like those though.

@JudyEv yes, they probably serve as a great excuse to be lazy - can't do that, it might hurt my nails.

I guess she doesn't work or cook or was dishes, after all she wouldn't want to break a nail.

@Freelanzer I guess if one breaks she might as well cut off the rest too

I have no problems with my fingernails, unfortunately, they never grow very long before they tend to break so I always have to keep them clipped. The biggest problems I have are with my toenails.

She sure has limited the things she can do with nails that long. She seems happy with those nails, but the upkeep on nails like that seems to consume most of her time.
