...you should never clip your nails by putting the clippers at the center of your nail bed? When you put the clippers at the center of your nail, you're putting unnecessary stress on the apex (stress point) of your nail and you can actually cause your nail to crack down the center! Ouch! When clipping, always use several short clips, moving side to side. And never peel off a nail which is "mostly" clipped or you'll risk a serious hangnail! Which clippers are right for you? Let's take a look:
For fingernails, a standard, curved pair of clippers is all you need. Don't be tempted by fancy slanted clippers or or "one click" clippers. You should also avoid nail scissors as these weaken the structure of the nail and are difficult to use properly. If you prefer, you may opt for a pair with a rubberized coating for better grip but remember, clippers are only good for six months to a year. Just like scissors or knives, they get too dull after awhile and need to be replaced.
