بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 962/B-200/TB=1434)

It is an ordinary habit and one can get rid of it easily or with a bit difficulty. If false nails are fixed which may be removed at the time of wudhu and ghusl then it shall be necessary to remove them for wudhu and ghusl. However, it shall not be allowed to wear false nails due to the said excuse.

Allah knows Best!
