It has been only recently that I started wondering about this. Being on sick leave for almost 2 months, I stayed at home and didn't really clip my nails as I didn't venture into public places very often. Only to shop food in a small grocery store every day or other. Thus I felt no need to do so. Now I'm sort going to public a lot, but I haven't clipped my hand nails, for I've been wondering why should I.
Every since I was kid, it has never been explained in reason. All I was ever told, "you got long nails, clip them!" And that's it. Now I wonder, why? If it would be impractical due to nature of my work I would, but it isn't, I type on keyboard all day and there really isn't any other activity I could think of that requires short nails.
And why it seems a guy with long nails is anymore wrong than a girl with ones. Society seems to be full of brainwashed conventions that have been in place too long to even realize how unnatural and forced they are. For nails growing is a natural process after all.

Do you know about all the wonderful decals and art that can be put on nails? You could make quite a statement.
Not sure about fingernail polish for a man, but I know men who have manicures. You can lightly sand and then buff and then shine your nails while keeping them whatever length you like.
I think this looks good on a man, and shine your shoes. Women like clean and shiny!
As far as "natural" goes, I am reminded of the farmer who was showing his fields to a visitor. The visitor said, "The Lord has certainly given you some beautiful fields!" The farmer replied, "You should have seen these fields when only the Lord was taking care of them!"
"Natural" is good, but I shave my legs and armpits. It is a woman thing.

Well i can think of a few good reasons why one should clip his nails ... imagine if you had nails like this,
doing ordinary everyday tasks could become quite complicated and time consuming ... like button your shirt, do (or undo) a zip, lace shoes, wash your armpits (and other more intimate parts), pick up a pencil, cut and eat food with a knife and fork, use a portable telephone, turn a doorknob to open a door, brush your teeth and last but not least put in contact lenses ...

Well speaking as a man for me when my nails get too long they get in the way. I notice it is easier for me to do things like use this cell phone than it is for my Jaianniah whom has long nails. I can play my guitar easier, I can use the lap top keyboard easier and when it comes to the mouse pad on the lap top, for me no problem. But for her near impossible. Her nails are only maybe and inch long.
There was a woman that worked at Kmart that didn't believe in cutting her nails. Her nails were very long, curled under and didn't look too clean. They were about twice as long as her fingers. It didn't look attractive at all, plus it was very impractical. She couldn't use her hands very much because her nails got in the way of everything.
Most woman with long nails still get them trimmed. They don't want them getting too long. Esteban probably even trims his left hand nails even though that they are maybe and inch long on his picking hand.
The point is the longer they get the more you have to take care of them. Most men prefer to just cut then off so they don't need to bother for a while, they just get in the way.
Does this look appealing to you?
