The answer is no, you can't have a quarter of an inch at the end of each nail, regrettably. The acrylic would simply lift up and pull off due to the flexing of the nail, as well as from the ingress of water from the back when you wash your hands. They really do need to be filled right back to the cuticle.

Just get it done. Pay no attention to the scaremongerers, I have had acrylics for over six years now, with no ill effects whatsoever.
