Toenail clipper or manicure scissors are appropriate, but avoid tools such as regular scissors or knives that aren’t specifically designed for cutting nails. You should have two nail clippers — one for your fingers and one for your toes. Since your toenails are broader and thicker, they require a larger clipper.
Cut nails when they’re dry, not wet because wet nails are more likely to tear, bend, or not cut smoothly because they’re softer when wet. Cutting dry nails will give you a cleaner, smoother cut.
- The difference between straight edge and curved edge clippers
A straight trim will help ensure your toenails grow forward as they should. Curved edges provide more opportunity for your nails to grow into your skin instead. If you are concerned about the corners of your nails poking against you or catching on your socks, gently file them down instead of clipping them off.
The most common reason for an ingrown toenail is cutting toenails too short. When nails tare cut too short, the skin on the sides can cover the corners of the nail which causes the nail to grow back into the skin.
