  • I don't think that my natural long nails are tacky. I only use clear polish though, don't like colored. One thing I would say is that you have to be really good about using that nail brush to keep them clean, especially if you are changing lots of diapers. That's the only drawback that I can see....cleanliness.

  • I think long nails are tacky and gross. Medium length look way more decent and natural.

  • It depends on how long they are. If they are fake ones that never got cut down then yes that is tacky and the polish makes them worse. Not to mention once the baby is born they can scratch the baby and all kinds of stuff so its better to change them now to get used to short ones.

  • depends on how long they are.. and why is it before they have a baby it's ok?
    I think if they are so long they make me wonder how they wipe their butts... then yes! Thats tacky!

  • Long nails on anyone are tacky. It doesnt matter your age or how many kids you have. And they are gross, think about all the things that get stuck under there. Yuck.
