And how often do you have to do it?
clipped and trim
I find those clip things really inefficient.
I used to trim them every day (well, on my left hand anyway, for guitar playing puroses). As I've fallen out of love with the guitar a bit lately, I have become really lax and only trim when I had a rough edge. Today I am sporting ten nails which are encrusted with dirt. I am so manky.
they just break, if anyone has any tips on how to make my nails stronger - go right ahead and let me know- because it does my head in
I would like to know what you mean.
Wut, it has like five clippers? Surely not?
Clippers for the win!
Imparts much less contorsional strain upon the hand than scissors. Clippers are a fine example of human tool development.
Yes, yes I would.
Toe nails: clippers, every other week, mebbes?
This is such a meths thread.
Dirty with a whiff of cheese
is this normal? Usually works fine.
I like having nice, neat nails. Clippers, once a week, straight after a shower. Sorted.
Jagged, yes. Sometimes it would take more than the nail which would hurt. Also, it sometimes leaves a bit of 'undernail'(?) which you have to chew off and that hurts too.
In short, don't do this.
did it again just now and it worked a treat.
TECHNOLOGY WHAT TECHNOLOGY?
I love chewing on that shit.
I used to bite my nails all the time, but in kicking that habit I made it like a good thing to see how far I could grow them.
This has resulted in my not really clipping as often as I should (for a fella).
My toe nails, also clippers, but they're a bit of a state from kicking people when playing football, meaning they're a bit cracked/bent/missing.
and there's the occasional round of scissors/file.
people who use clippers are weird. well, apart from one.
BUT THE CONTORSIONAL STRAIN WHITERUSSIAN
People still use scissors to cut their nails? Jesus.
Awful, awful film, but I can't quite be bothered to go to the Black Swan thread and explain why.
but they still grow long enough, fast enough to require me to trim fingers about once a fortnight and toes about once a month.
Just to clarify, I don't bite my toe nails
forgot to specify scissors. Clippers are annoying as fuck.
I hate having long fingernails so I cut them every couple of days.
Toes - Scissors
AND HERE IS MY REASON. I come from a family where apparently ingrowing toenails are hereditary. My oldest brother had 3, second oldest had 4, closest in age brother had 2, and I've had 3. The reason for this, it seems, is not hereditary, but the fact that many clippers have rounded blades, so that it cuts the nails in a round fashion. This, in result, causes your toenails to grow outwards, digging into your skin and causing lots and lots of pain.
Since then, I've used scissors, which cut in a straight line, and since then have had no problems.
Fingers - as soon as one of them rips/breaks, they all get cut shortish.
Toenails - when my toes start to hurt because my toenails are digging into my shoes (so once every 3 months?)
My last boyfriend used to rip his toenails off with his fingers and try to put them in my mouth. When he couldn't get them in my mouth, he would throw them across the room and leave them there. Also, when we didn't live together, he would save his toenails for me to look at when I came round....then would try to put them in my mouth.
Is there anything your ex's didn't try to put in your mouth?
but thats about it.
Planning to put the bag in the bin at the end, making the task much easier for me and saving the clean up operation.
My flatmate came home shortly after, bounded into my room, spotted the bag of cashew nuts with a look of sheer delight on her face, which turned to despair as she realised there was only the scraps left.
Not one to be left empty-handed, she thought the scraps were worthy of being eaten, so emptied the bag straight into her mouth, before I had a chance to explain why she should definitely not do that.
She stopped as soon as the horrible toenails hit her mouth, but it was too late. She disappeared into the bathroom, and I listened to her retching for a few minutes.
Last time she tried to steal my cashew scraps, and now she's a lesbian.
PS Clippers, for both.
yet posts very little, I can comfortably say that's the most awful story I've ever read on here :S
IT'S MY FUCKING LIFE.
She's getting married in the fall. To a man.
It's just when I originally wrote it I wasn't expecting it to be such a funny ending :)
I hate it. WHY DO WE EVEN NEED THEM? I hate long nails, bleugh! I'd say it's the only thing I'm really fussy about on a man too, if their nails are a bit too long it just freaks me right out. No thanks, nails, no thanks.
