My nails are crap! I can not grow them out at all so when I want to I glue on a set of fake nails. I generally just go maybe 1/8″ past the finger tip, but I do have some glue ons that are about 1/4″ past. I have a set of glue on tips that require using acrylic and powder to blend them in. A lot of work for a day of wearing. They are ridiculously long, over 1/2″ past the finger tip.
As for doing normal tasks, yes it can add a bit of difficulty. Typing for example. I use the tip of the nail, so it is an adjustment. Try pick up a penny from the floor or counter top, about impossible! Cooking, buttering a piece of bread can be a challenge. One Sunday morning when we woke up my wife thought I was crazy as I was still wearing a dress. Try as I might I could not grab the zipper pull behind my back and she was asleep already so I said “screw it” and went to bed dressed! Of course it meant bra and forms too and at that point I just left my nylons on.
