My mom and I always try to remember to keep our nails cut. We've had accidents before of bumping our hands/fingers into our partners faces, but it's always worse to be scratched. More than once my mom forgot to cut her nails or had just cut them so they were a little sharp and accidentally jabbed me in the face! Ouch! It's especially dangerous to have long or sharp nails if you get to close to your partner's eyes. Also, we are either the only or 2 of the very few females in the class and it's embarrassing if we accidentally scratch somebody. We also don't like the feel and inconvinience of long nails anyway, so we prefer to keep them short.
