Hi everyone, my name is Joi, and I’m a licensed manicurist. And today, I’m going to show you all how to cut your fingernails without cutting your fingers. So, it’s really pretty simple. You want to make sure that you’re using the proper tools. I’m going to actually be using a nail clipper here. I know that some people like to kind of do it fast, they may want to use scissors or some other tool. But, scissors, you run a higher risk of actually cutting your skin, so you want to avoid that. So, what you want to do is take your nail clipper, and you want to just kind of hold it right at the edge of your nail. You don’t want to go in like this, and you don’t want to go in too far, because you also will risk cutting yourself that way. You want to start at the edge, take a little piece off. And then, if you want to cut off more, you just keep going in further, rather than trying to take one big chunk at a time. So, I’m just taking a little piece off, and working from side to side. Okay. And, making sure to be careful throughout. And, of course, you want to follow up by filing so that you don’t scratch yourself. But, these are ways to safely cut your fingernails without cutting your skin. So, thank you all for watching, and my name is Joi. Bye!
