Re: Nail length what do you think looks the best......

No offense if you wear these, but I don't like the ones so long and shaped like spears on the end.

@ID2. I hear you.. Add the dry Winter cold  UpNorth and they all break off. I don't bother with polish at this time of year. Maybe a clear nail strengthener. I have nice  shaped natural nails in tbe summer. The right hand is always a bit shorter as I use it more. I have hand creams in the kitchen, Livingroom and bedroom and hands and nails still dry.

Why short nails are in fashion thanks to the coronavirus outbreak

 

Something similar to this: Short, no polish.

ITA.  I use to wear them long, but now just about like you stated. I was looking a Mally's and it doesn't look good anymore, but to each their own.

I don't like really long nails, but tend to wear mine a little longer around the holidays.

 

Most of the time, for me, it's less about the length, and more about getting them to all look about the same length!   

 

I have two nails that seem to break all the time .... and they ruin for all my other fingers!  LOL   Woman LOL

Re: Nail length what do you think looks the best......

I wear my nails just past the end of my fingertips.  I always keep my nails trimmed and polished and use a variety of nail colors.

 

I hate artificial nails!  Many years ago I lived neighbors to a hair stylist who wanted to offer manicures to her customers.  She used me as her "trial and error customer" and applied long artificial nails.  I hated them.  They felt so heavy and it was hard to do anything with them on.  I couldn't wait to have them removed and have never worn them since, and never will.

This would have been a nice topic for the Beauty forum @chiclet

All I can say is these dagger nails on TV are absolutely hideous.

I prefer to keep my nails short, sheer or clear polish.
