Long or short... fake or real?

How do you like your nails?

My preference is shorter real nails with a bit of nail over the nail bed. I have naturally strong nails and they do grow fast. If they start to get too long, I always file them down some. 

I'm not a fan of fake long nails anymore.  I went through that faze in the 90's and now prefer a healthy real nail.

What do you like?

Short real nails :) it's just easier that way. I've gotten acrylics a few time since having my kids and I felt soooo bad when I scratched them :(

Not long but not short... But fake, my real nail don't grow. When they get past my fingers they break off. I have tried everything to strengthen them and nothing works.

I prefer short real nails also.  Its just more practical, and way less work!

Short real nails, can't stand the look of acrylics, imo.

My nails are real and they not short but not super long.  I file them every Sunday night while watching TV since they seem to grow pretty fast.
