Long Fingernails

Why not?

Although some may like their nails long, there is definitely a limit to how far you can go in a professional environment. Nails should never impede your ability to accomplish tasks and really should never be so long that dirt can collect underneath them – it sends the message that you just don’t care about your appearance. If you do choose to keep long(ish) nails, make absolutely certain they are very well kept.

Try me instead:
