These are gorgeous, though probably not practical and way too over the top for anything but the most bling situations. I used to have long nails – from when I was a teenager until my mid-thirties. I am lucky enough to have hard nails which grow long easily. But somewhere along the line I went short and never grew them again. If I had to wear these, I would probably wear only one and leave the other nails long and unpainted – and wear no other jewellery.
