The nail clipper produces a clean cut and leaves your nails with sharp edges which then must be rounded with a nail file. For this reason some prefer to use nail scissors : there are various types, shapes and sizes. It is important to choose the right model, with sufficiently strong blades, preferably curved to better follow the natural curve of the nail. The scissors to cut nails, realize a clean and precise cut while leaving the edge of the nails slightly rounded.
