i know people who can take them out with long nails be more careful cut your nails or go buy a pair of glasses
when i got contacts i had short nails, now i have really long nails, but i've never had any problems.
when you take out your contacts do it with your nail at like 90 degrees to contact (kinda like your're pointing at your nose) and you should be ok. just make sure you do it will the bit of your finger parallel to your nail, not the very tip of your finger and it should work all right.
hope you manage!
yeah, i had short nails to start with too....hmmm, i'll try again....<sighs>
