    Me and my long nails....



    The reason of keeping long nail - vanity? No lah... just lazy to cut...
    Remember that I had my first manicure not long ago? I am sort of addicted to it. Because it looks quite nice... But there are some disadvantages of keeping long nails...

    • Ya, I can still type, but sometimes with typo. Questions often asked by ex-colleagues are "How you type with your long nails?" "You too kiam siap to buy nail cutter or what" and ex-boss always said "I am going to cut your nails with these scissors tomorrow if you dont cut it tonight". Boss, I am superstitious mah, mama said cannot cut nails at night one... :P
    • My nails breaks easily if I don't polish them. I am no "qian jin xiao jie", I hand wash my clothes and I do housework too. When my nails breaks, it bleeds and it is really painful...
    • I have problem on placing my thumb on thumb print reader. I always use the automated gate in both Malaysia and Singapore checkpoints. There was once Chloe and I went to JB for shopping. I was stuck in the automated gate because I was unable to place my thumb properly on the thumb print reader.
    • I will have problem entering my office soon. Why? My company is using thumb print door lock. It will verify my thumb print before it opens the door and let me enter my office. "Open sesame" does not work for my office door. :P
    • Need to spend on manicure and nail polish...
    • Lesser PSP time! My nails are too long and it is difficult for me to press those buttons! My nail will hit the top button when I press the left button. When I try to press the CIRCLE button, but my thumb nail will hit on the TRIANGLE button. Long nail of PSP? Choose one!
    • No touch screen phones! I had a hard time when was asked to use touch screen phones to do some mobile application testing!
    • Difficult to cut veggies on the chopping board. I often accidentally cut my nails! If you found nails in my cooking dishes then... errr.... don't complain! or else, cook on your own!
    • I have problem on taking out my moisturizer from its bottle. I need to use another nail to 'dig out' the moisturizer that stuck between my nails before applying it to my face.
    • Can't really open canned drinks because I scared my nails will break. Thank god that I have good lunch mates who are willing to open it for me.
    • Easily scratch on things. My wallet, oh gosh, I really need to send it back for polish before I tear off its skin... I always accidentally scratch on baby's skin as well. Pity the baby that my mom babysits. Sorry ya...
    So, do you think that I should cut my long nails?

    Those are very long nails! If they are not giving you problem, then no need to cut loh. I wish I could have nails as long as yours, but can't. I will have problem taking off my contact lens, and also cannot play piano :(

    nice nail length... why bother to cut?

    cleffairy said...

    Wah... your fingernails are so nice la, Jo...I never kept long fingernails, i feel it's bothersome and not so hygienic also. =.= my line of work need to type fast, and i deal with a lot of little children every day... so... cannot keep fingernails.
    My husband keep fingernails though... and very reluctant to cut it, like a little child...I dono why, I feel like cutting his when he's asleep. =.=

    Anyway, better cut if you feel it's bothersome. :-P
