The Nailasaurus, it’s easier to trim long nails with a clipper.“I personally use clippers to shape my nails,” says Tremlin.Hello IMBBians, I have been a silent reader of this amazing website for almost a year now.
Their rougher texture will smooth away the thicker nail faster.Tremlin continues to say the only downside of using a clipper is the possibility of trimming off too much nail.“If you’re taking off a lot of length, filing alone would take a long time.So, I snip them first—slightly longer than I want—then work on the shape with a file.” As for the type of file, there are a variety to choose from, including glass files, metal files, and emery boards.A large variety of scissors and shears all exist for specialized purposes.
Hair-cutting shears and kitchen shears are functionally equivalent to scissors, but the larger implements tend to be called shears.
Tremlin uses a glass file because of the fine grit of the board.
A glass nail file is made from small crystals and this type of file lasts longer than emery files or metal files.
They consist of a pair of metal blades pivoted so that the sharpened edges slide against each other when the handles (bows) opposite to the pivot are closed.
Scissors are used for cutting various thin materials, such as paper, cardboard, metal foil, cloth, rope, and wire.
The fine grit of a glass nail file allows for more detailed shaping than a coarse file would on your natural nail.
