My nails are growing too long, and I can't find the stupid nail clippers! I'm just one of those people who can't stand having long finernails!

I can't have long fingernails either. I bit them off yesterday because they were driving me nuts, and I can't stand the sound nail clippers make, lol.

Gah, that sounds majorly annoying. Are you able to get to the store and buy another pair? You would want a backup pair anyhow, for when you misplace your main pair.

If you're too overloaded to get to the store right now, do something that doesn't require your hands to touch anything--watching TV, maybe--until you're okay again. Then go buy or find the clippers, or get somebody else to help you get another pair, or borrow someone else's.

Here is the no blade, no teeth method:

Fight nails with nails. Use the ends of one nail against the end of the other, working across ways to make a groove. Work away on the same spot (thumbnail on fingernail is easiest) until you form a groove. Don't push too hard as you may force the nail slightly away from the nail bed, which can become sore if you use this method often.

Use the groove to get a grip and carefully pull some nail off. Nails naturally can be worked off in convenient strips. Do it carefully so you don't take off too much. What remains will look ragged, so find an excuse to go outside, somewhere secluded, and file the nails smooth against some brick or concrete. In fact, if you're patent, you can wear down the whole nail that way but it takes a while. Find a bit of brick that won't be noticed, as nail leaves white marks. Problem solved.

Not that I do this myself of course...

I only bite those in extreme circumstances. Usually, I just peel the ends off.

You guys are crazy. I hate the feeling of short nails. But it's also socially unacceptable for them to be long because I'm a male, so I have to cut them just about every other day to maintain a perfect length.

I wish my nails would grow they get to a certain length and then start splitting :x
I don't like short nails I find they get sore if the're short.
