Long nails are not my preference regardless of one's sex/gender, but if someone (regardless of his or her sex/gender) wants to have long nails, then he or she should go ahead.
Dont get defensive. The comment just read as though if a person was not a woman then they shouldnt be asking such a question. Thats all.

Well -- picture a "V", then round the bottom like a "U" That's my nails -- flat broad and fan shaped.

I wear mine short and squared -- more "squoval" than not. I have to do the very thing you aren't supposed to -- file and shape down the sides.

With my nails and my work, keeping them short is the best option, so they don't get much past the tip of the finger.

Those stiletto nails look exactly like what make up artists do in movies when depicting witches or monsters. A big NAY! Totally ugly. A nice small oval is the prettiest, IMO.

Gross. Long fake nails on a woman is a major turnoff. A woman nails should be natural and extend just a teeny bit beyond the tip of her finger.

Yeah, I see how it could have been interpreted that way.

Thus, I suppose that I should have put this question in better context.

I have never in my life seen stiletto nails and am very happy for that.

Neither. I have oval-shaped tips, no matter the length I have at the time. Classic, low-maintenance, practical.
