Oh how I love you nails. You served me well for many years. Women everywhere would envy you. I could use you to pick up hot things, open boxes, and boy did you scratch well.
But Alas I must say goodbye. Lately you have been getting in my way, making marks all over my cakes and are very hard to clean. So I must part with you. Although I will miss you I know it's for the better.
I know some women can work with you very well. Unfortunately I have not seemed to master that skill.
Thank you for all the wonderful things you have done for me over the years. I truly appreciate it.
Sincerely,
your owner Jen....

I feel ya! I was just saying the last time I did fondant in class it was time to cut my nails cause they get in my way after a point. I've often thought about getting fake ones put on, but then I think about all the buttercream that would be under them, and the pokes in fondant, not to mention picking up thin gumpaste items.

I use fake nails when I'm going out, between my cake hobby and yard work long nails just don't work for me.

No nails allowed in my kitchen. When I have folks with long nail place an application, the first thing I ask them is, "Are you willing to cut those nails off to work here?"

My nails naturally grow very long and strong. I don't decorate very often, but when I do, I always have to cut my nails down to avoid having jabs and nicks in the icing.

My cat usually gives me funny looks after I cut my nails, guess the short ones just don't feel as good to her!
