Is it normal to be obsessed with keeping nails short

Since a young age I constantly clip/peel my nails whenever I notice them getting long enough to see the white top. I don't cut them so short that it's gone completely, but it's just at that threshold. I get so obsessive over it sometimes tho, like having that white part there makes me really uncomfortable and I can't help but immediately clip them (or peel them if I don't have access to any clippers). I'm wondering if anyone else feels this way, or if it's common

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • I prefer my nails short, but I don't obsess about it. Whenever I clip my own nails I do my cat's nails too.

  • I'm not obsessed with it but I like to keep mine short too - I garden and teach kids so I always get dirt, paint, glitter and other stuff under them. It's easier to keep them clean like that.

    • Took me forever to work out the balance between my nails being long enough that I like them but not so long I'm a danger to the bubbas.

  • I know too many people who are the same way. It's ok. Just try not to chew on them. It's a terrible habit.

  • I'm a male, so I'm a bit strange, but I let my nails grow until they reach the point at which they become inconvinient, then I trim them down to the point that they're uselessly short. Then the cycle repeats itself.
