I have long nail beds so I don't wear my nails too much beyond the fingertip. I actually get annoyed by having them too long because of things like typing and certain nails always breaking. I love to paint them though and sometimes I will grow them out just a bit for a French manicure.

my wife started doing some nail art for me about 2 months ago
 
started with just some mix of color flashes and once or twice added glitter
 
i got hooked and have been on a big nail art kick lately
 
its a light purple base with white flashes.......diagonal gold glitter and enhanced with swarovski crystals
 
 
this is the first time ive done alot of glitter and the first time ive ever done anything with crystals
 
these were taken 2 days ago........ive trying to get pics before i change it up......which i will be doing soon
 
the glitter and crystals made the glare tough in some pics.......but i took pics from a few different angles to show them off and show the length

    I do not measure my nails, but everyone tells me they are long for a guy!
I am not really in to growing them to achieve any length etc, I just let them grow until I am happy with them.

It s a great stuff to maintain a nail like this... everyone has there own passion... we cannot judge them and we cannot order them too... and we should not feed our own thoughts to others..

I donít like growing nails. I have short nails. I feel so uncomfortable with long nails. I always prefer short and trimmed nails.

Long nails........no way. When I think of long nails I think of older ladies around a crystal ball. It just isn't my thing but if it is yours, more power to you.

I don't have long nail, as they will be broken when they are long, and easier to hurm my fingers.

I like long nails if they are well manicured and taken care of. I donít like them too long though because they start looking like claws to me after a certain point. I also like longer nails with a nice French manicure, something simple and classy. My nails are not that long but they look long because my nail beds are long. I donít keep them very long because they are cumbersome when doing certain things. I also personally donít care for long nails on a man and I think for some men it is just not practical. but I do think that it is nice when men take care of their nails and have them manicured and neat looking.

Cut your nails to a considerable length. Don't keep your nails too long as there may be chances of breakage. Whenever you cut your nails, file them properly as per your required shape, otherwise they grow uneven.

Clean them regularly. Keeping them clean is part of basic nail care. This can be accomplished simply by washing your hands. If you work with your hands, it's very likely that dirt and grime will get under them so be sure to clean them up as soon as possible. You can use a good brush dipped in soapy water, gently scrub the top and underneath the nails to clean them thoroughly.
