Cut Your Nails Straight Across.
Avoid the temptation to cut down the sides. If you are experiencing pain, see a chiropodist for advice. The reason we advise not cutting down the side is as well as risking making the problem worse, you can introduce infection to the sides of your nail. All our instruments are sterile so if it is really necessary to cut down the sides, this is a much safer way of rectifying the problem.
