Including sunah of nature is to cut nails. Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said:

خمس من الفطرة: الختان, والاستحداد, ونتف الإبط, وتقليم الأظفار, وقص الشارب

"5 cases of fitrah: circumcision, shaving the pubic hair, plucking underarm hair, cut nails, and shaving mustache." (HN. Bukhari Muslim)

Is there a time limit allowing the pubic hair, or underarm hair or nails, or mustashto grow long?

In fact, Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam has set a deadline to let it grow maximum in "40 days". Moreover, the Prophet ordered to cut it off and forbidden to leave it longer.

Anas bin Malik said:

وقت لنا في قص الشارب, وتقليم الأظفار, ونتف الإبط, وحلق العانة, أن لا نترك أكثر من أربعين ليلة

"The Messenger gives us the time to shave mustache, cutting the nails, plucking the armpit hairs, shaving the pubic hair, so that we do not let it grow longer than 40 days" (HN. Muslim)

From the above hadith, then we can infer that lengthen the nail more than 40 days is prohibited by Islamic shari'ah.

Especially if people elongated nails to imitate infidels or wicked (fasiq) person, then it is obviously illicit (haram).

Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said:

من تشبه بقوم فهو منهم

"Whoever imitates a people then he belonged to them." (HR. Abu Daud)

The ridiculous part of those who lengthen nails: "they stated that lengthen the nail is part of new era fashion". Yet, it is the stone age seedy fashion, moroover lengthen the nails resemble animals fingernails which full of dirt.

Furthermore, doctors must have been recommend people to regularly cut nails in order to make their live cleaner and more hygienic.

So let us follow the Sunnah of the Prophet for not lengthening the nail more than 40 days.

Allah knows best.
