Really? I wouldn't have thought so, but then I guess I've had reaally long like you ever before!

Yeah, I'd say this length here is my limit though, it just depends what feels right for you. I have long nail beds though, so the free edge here was only 1cm, even though it looks longer.

Ahhhhh, I see!!! I have shorter nail beds so they look super long to mine when I compare them. That makes sense!

Yep, this was them a month after cutting them. You can see not much free edge at all but they still seemed long with polish on: [link]

Wauw, your nails are gooooorgeous!
I want my nails like that too, but when they're finally a BIT LONG, they always end up breaking ]:
How do you get your nails so long? They must be very strong.

Thank you! they are pretty strong but I'm fighting breaks now it's getting cold :( I find the best thing is to keep them moisturised and wear polish or just a nail strengthener. I've just started using opi nail envy :)

I have the same problem right now ]: I just broke 3 nails, so 5 days ago I also started on Nail Envy, which I've used before. It works if I use it for 5-6 weeks [:
I had very long nails before - but not even close to as long as yours =o Again - They look amazing! And I love your nail work <3

Thank you! Mine are now little nubbins. I cut them a couple of days ago due to a couple of breaks. I'll grow them again though :)

Nail polish stains them but as I always paint them I don't try removing them as it can weaken them. Thank you :)

Beautiful! May I ask how you keep them from breaking? I've heard clear nail polish helps, but I haven't given it a try yet.
Reply
:iconsoyoubeauty:
soyoubeauty Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
Thank you :) To be honest I did get a few breaks a few weeks ago but I've fixed them with a little bit of fibreglass wrap. Mainly because the breaks are so low they'd hurt if I let it fully break :(
I get breaks more in the cold. I'd say the best thing you can do is moisturise lots, keep hydrated & I've started using a nail strengthener called nail envy which gets great reviews :)
