The biggest mistake I see men making is to use a blunt clipper to clip their nails. Do you use a clipper and you struggle to cut through your nails? If so, it's time to replace it. Old or blunt clippers are not just hard and frustrating to use especially in thicker nails like your toenails, but it can also damage your nails because they can cause a tear.

The second mistake I often see is men cutting their nails straight across. Yes, it's easier to do it that way, it takes less time, it takes less attention, but it's not very flattering to your hands. Also, it creates unnaturally sharp corners and I can see why you want to cut them just more or less straight because most scissors are straight and even nail scissors that are slightly angled sometimes are still not angled enough to get a shape that actually works with the natural shape of your fingernails.

The third mistake many men make is using traditional nail scissors or just scissors. Most of the time, they're dull and they just squish your nail rather than really cut it. I can see why people use it in the first place, it sounds like a good idea especially if it's sharp but even if you find a very sharp pair of nail scissors, I find the clipper is always superior.

The fourth mistake I see sometimes is people relying too heavily on their file or relying exclusively on their file. The file is very valuable and it should be part of the last step in your nail grooming routine, however, you should always cut it down first with a nail clipper and then just finish with a file.

The fifth mistake men make is not using a file at all. I know it's an extra step and once you've clipped your nails, you may think “oh I'm done all is good”. The problem is it leaves much sharper edges that are not nice and smooth.

The sixth mistake men make is to just focus on the fingernails and not on everything else on your hands. That being said, it's good take care of your nails, however, they're just one part of your hand. If you have a lot of dirt under your cuticles or they're dry and cracked, it's just a very well groomed overall look and first impression. Also, if you have hands that are very dirty or if you have skin issues, it just doesn't look very gentlemanly. Don't ignore your cuticles and your hangnails.

The seventh mistake I've seen is people just not taking care of their nail tools or not cleaning them. Now sometimes, stainless steel if it's not of the highest quality, will still rust if it's in a moist environment and you should never cut your nails or your cuticles with something that's rusty because it can lead to an infection if you cut yourself.

So how can you avoid all of those mistakes?
Obviously, start investing in a quality nail kit that consists of at least a nail clipper, a cuticle clipper, as well as a nail file. Additionally, you can also get a buffing block and I also suggest to get some hand lotion.
