I love having my long finger nails. I don't really know how long it takes for my nails to grow long once they break off but I guess it's average growth. I have seen it somewhere on YouTube about a lady who had the world's longest finger nails and it was both interesting and scary at the same time. I have had fake nails once but I prefer my own nails. So do you grow your own nails out or do you take a shortcut and just buy them?
