Short false nails - what to get?

I an effort to kick my dermotillomania, I've decided to try false nails. However, I don't want them to be long - just a tiny bit above my fingertip - as I find long nails difficult to type/do things with. Most people seem to get them because they want length, not because they want the ends to be too thick to pick at skin with! the Boots ones I have are about 1cm over the end of my finger and it feels like having prosthetic fingers.

What are some good brands/sellers to try? I'd rather put them on myself than go to a salon.

Hi. I have acrylics applied at a salon. My nails have always been horrible and now I love the acrylics. The salon cut them down so they are quite short as I also need to be able to type etc. They still look fab and make my hands look so much better.

You can file stick on false nails to whatever length you want.
I find stick ons fall off very easily though.
