Wuḍū’ and Ghusl despite Long Nails

Question: Does long nails prevent water from reaching under the nails and as a result invalidate wuḍū’ and ghusl?
Answer: Just having long nails is not an obstacle to wuḍū’ nor invalidates it; But if there is an obstacle under that part of a nail that is longer than usual, it should be removed.
