I know of someone who used scissors in cutting his finger nails and even toe nails. Of course he can have clippers which is easy to use than scissors but I am just wondering why he is doing that? I tried that once just for curiosity but it is harder than clippers do.. but I think that would be better than biting your nails to cut it when clippers are not available. Did you experience doing that too? just curious to know.

What is the matter with finger nails with you? You seems to be after them, they have their own life. Do let them live!

If you would have asked 15 years earlier, I would have said, I do eat them because at that time I was a kid and was afraid of blade to cut my nails. It was in 1996, when we hvae starte nail cutters!

Yes I did; experienced cutting my nails w/ scissors. My mother did it when we were kids as nail cutters were not common that time hence doing it w/ the scissors but am doing it w/ clippers now, it's more easy and convenient of course.

hahaha.. so, you were able to experience using scissors to cut your nails? that was used by the older generation.Yup my mother was using that before too. Does this goes to show that we belong to the oldies where nail cutter is not yet manufactured? hahahaha

One of the best all-round exercises for older people is biting their toe-nails off. My toenails are always neat and tidy. Sometimes I even wash my feet first, but if you change your socks several times a week this is not always necessary. If you look at my avatar (which is me) you can see that I'm just getting ready to do my weekly pedicure.

I've tried using scissors one time to cut my fingernails and it doesn't work very good, let alone your toenails, I think it would be harder to do because generally your toenails are harder than your fingernails. I guess it would be better than biting them, but I think I would try to find some clippers somewhere, they aren't that expensive..ha.

I've seen some people cutting their nails with scissors and I think they reason is maybe because there is no clippers available, lol. I haven't tried to cut my nail with scissors and I will not try because you said it is harder, lol.

It is hard!!! I've tried that out of curiosity and i can say it is harder than the cippers. I don't know why some people are comfortable using it?

I have not tried cutting my nails with a scissor! I have always used the clippers because I have found that very convenient. And I do not bite my nails ever.

hahaha good to hear that. I think some people do the two because they are comfortable to do that. Or maybe clippers are hard to find? in their place. Am not sure but when I see them doing that, I would think that they just don't care about it.

Hello Bebs. I use clippers to cut my nails instead of using scissors. I feel more comfortable using clippers and I think that it is safer. But of course, if I have to use scissors, I can also handle it.

hahaha... I think you can handle it using scissors. Well, most oldies are comfortable using scissors maybe because scissors are more available in those days than clippers? hehehe

Yes, I do see some people using scissors too and they are mostly oldies. And I am amazed they could do it. I can't even do that myself. I always use nail cutter or course.

Hi Che, I tried using it before and it did work but is harder to use than nail cutter. Most people in the province who can not find nail cutter right away are doing this.. hehehe

Hey Bebs! I would never use scissors to cut my nails! It isn't even a good idea to do that! I always use nail clippers! You get a better cut with them! It is safer and healthier to use nail clippers! That's what they are made for! I don't know why anyone would use scissors! They are dangerous and don't cut the nails correctly! You have to be very careful when you are cutting your fingernails and toenails or you could get a bad infection!

hahah that is right!!! I feel like I am tickled reading your response which is very correct!!! scissors are not made to cut fingernails.. Maybe these people can not wait to have clippers and they want to cut their nails.. so they did it.

I guess they want jagged nails. Scissors are not made for trimming your nails, they are not rounded so if somebody wants to trim their nails that way then stay out of the way.

With my luck I'd end up cutting off a finger or a toe using scissors like that. I'll just stick with clippers and be happy with them. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]
