How can you girls function with long nails.
I had the day off today. I was bored while waiting for it to be time to pick up my daughter. So I put a nail tip on my index finger and trimmed it so that it was just to the end of my finger. I found it nearly impossible to text. I tried with the tip of the nail and it didn't work reliable. I had to use the finger print area of my finger to text, which made me make more fat finger mistakes than usual. I guess you would have to retrain your brain to do things differently. I had to do that after my left wrist was fused. I took a while for my brain to realize that it doesn't bend there anymore. Now I hardly notice it. It is so much easier to paint a nail that extends to the end of your finger. You can seal the free edge with out painting the skin on the end of your finger. If I can ever get my nails to grow with out peeling. I want them to grow out a little bit.
