I cut my nails every fortnight and file them. Cutting the feet nails is difficult for me as my stomach comes on the way and no sitting position is comfortable for me. Hence I cut them after taking bath as they will be soft and easy to cut. This I postpone sometimes as I may have some urgent work to do after bath, or servant will come or phone will come.

I cut my nails for like once a week. For the record I like my nails short both hands and feet. But sometimes I like to put on nail polish so I make my nails longer but I never make my nails on my toes longer.

Yes, if it doesn't look good on my I change the color. It's hard to find nail polish that looks good in my tan color.

The only time I cut my finger nails is if they break off. That is the only time beause I will snag my clothes or stratch my spouse accidently. My toe nails I cut them often. They can really hurt someone if you cut the person or even hurt your feet if they get too long, you have problems wearing your shoes.

Unfortunately they do not grow that long. I really wish I could get them to grow longer. Then maybe I would not need the fake ones.

It depends. If I were growing my nails, I only file them whenever the shape's wrong, and if I want to keep it short, I cut it when the white tip starts to show. :)

I used to remove my nails by biting them, which was a bad habit. Nowadays I've already got rid of this habit. Currently I usually cut my nails once a week. In my opinion, cutting nails frequently is a good habit to keep yourself health, for there exist many germs in your nails if your nails are very long.

I only cut them when they starts to irritate me, or one of them breaks. My nails grow very fast so i cut them once in a fortnight or so, if i am not lazy enough ;P

Whenever they start to irritate me. I am not fond of clipping and filing, so i try to ignore this little chore. TATA.

Hi umadper, I don't have any fixed time when to cut my nails. I do it randomly whenever there is a need. There is a nail cutter and a nail file kept in my bathroom shelf. While washing my toe nails I know whether it's the appropriate time to cut them. If so I would like to have the nails cut and filed nicely after showering. Finger and toe nails are soft and easy to cut after bathing. After the cutting, it's easy to drain away the indecent mess left on the bathroom floor as well Have a nice day and happy posting

I cut my nails every weekend. But I dont apply an antibiotic or dettol. I mean why do you need to do that. But yes I usually cut my nails just before I go for a bath. So my hands get washed. But I dont consciously do it everytime. And definately not use antiseptic soaps.
