Cut your nails well

By: Maryton

Whether you are a fan of tigress claws or wear them short, it is therefore regularly essential to shorten them! Today, your expert nail supplier Maryton will offer you some tips for cutting your nails without damaging them.

File nails or cut them?

Nail clippers are often criticized: misused, they sometimes lead to splitting of the nails which weakens them. However, they can be used without risk to cut the nails of the feet, harder and thicker.

For the hands, two scenarios:

  • You wear long, manicured nails: in this case, nail clippers are to be avoided. Only use a file to maintain your pretty nails.
  • You wear short nails or you wore them long: the use of the file can then seem tedious. Less fragile than long nails, short nails easily withstand being cut.

How to cut the nails?

  • Professionals recommend using nail nippers: the cut is more precise and the risk of splitting the nail is limited.
  • Before cutting your nails, soak them for 10 minutes in a hot water bath: tenderized by the heat, they will be easier to cut. You can also cut your nails when you get out of the shower or bath.
  • For the feet: cut your nails square with heavy-gauge pliers, suitable for hard nails. To avoid ingrown nails, don’t cut your nails shorter than your toes.
  • For the hands: keep one to two millimeters of white at the end of the nails: by cutting them shorter, you risk injuring yourself and you would promote the penetration of bacteria under the nails.
  • For the hands as for the feet, finish by using a file to round the edge of the nails and prevent them from catching. Preferably choose a cardboard file.
  • Cut your nails as soon as their length bothers you: 7 to 15 days depending on how quickly they grow, which varies from person to person.
