To be struggling with having long nails?

When I say 'long' I don't mean very long I just mean quite a bit longer than my usually bitten down to the bone nails blush

How do you:

Clean your ears - gooey
Wash your bottom shock - scratchy
Remove your mooncup confused - scary
Pick your nose hmm - annoying

Life just isn't the same.

AIBU to be struggling like this?

Agree.... have grown mine for sisters wedding on Monday. Ditto with hair. Driving me up the bloody wall....

You'll get used to them. My SIL has nails like these and lives a perfectly normal life doing most of the things you've listed.

hiddenhome: I know exactly how you feel.

When I have long nails I feel almost disabled (in a tiny little non-serious way). Like I would if I tired to do things around the house walking on stilts.

Ripped my acrylics off very soon after they were put on for my wedding. Ooh.. sweet freedom!!!!!

Tip: use a flannel to wash your arse wink

Long nails do make doing things difficult; that is why upper class ladies had them in days gone by, to show that they did not have to do any menial work - they had servants to do it for them.

You don't have to have long nails; I don't, out of choice.

Is this a joke?
