- Cut nails when they are dry, not wet. Nails are softer when wet. This can cause the nail to tear, bend or not cut smoothly. Cutting dry nails will give you a smoother, cleaner cut.
- Make a few small cuts. Make small cuts across your nail. Do not try and clip the toenail in one shot.
- Try to file them. If you prefer to file rather than cut your nail, don't drag the file or emery board back and forth over the nail. Gently move the file in one direction across the top of the toenail until smooth and the appropriate length. You should also use the file in one direction to smooth out any rough edges after you have clipped them.
- Don't cut your cuticles. If you want to tame the cuticles on your toenails, use a cuticle or orange stick to push them back. Cutting can cause bleeding or infection. Pushing them back gives feet a neat look without unnecessary damage.

You should seek medical advice from your podiatrist if you develop an ingrown toenail, if you experience any severe discomfort in your toe, or if pus or redness seems to be spreading. If you have diabetes or any circulation impairment in your legs and feet, seek the advice from your podiatrist on how to properly care for ingrown toenails. If you notice any foot sores or infections, seek treatment immediately.
