Nails are often neglected as we get on with the hustle and bustle of our daily lives.

Another essential aspect of nail grooming is clipping or trimming. Use nail clippers or sharp manicure scissors to clip your nail length. Make sure to clip your nails mostly straight across, but rounded on the corners slightly on your fingernails. For toes, it is best to cut straight across if you can to avoid ingrown toenails.
