Short and square

I loveeee having my nails long and squared! But my job (I'm a bagger) tasks don't allow me to have them, they always break!

That's exactly how I've always kept my nails, Jackie!

Yea, what about short and squared with rounded edges

I keep my nails square and short sometimes I let them grow a little longer but I'd have to say I'm more of the #2 on the short side 😏
