    Not just you though--anybody--no clipping nails in my kitchen applies to everybody

    It isn't a place I'd really clip them anyway. My home office or practice studio would be much more likely

    Actually an emery board is a really underrated thing

    Man that feeling when you cut those toenails is so good

    I hate how those feel.
    When I took classical lessons my teacher would make me use one--and then smoothen them out with this low grit sandpaper-esque stuff to buff them.
    not what most teenage boys want to do witht heir time.

    Later on I adapted to a mostly finger style, instead of mostly fingernail (My teacher taught a hybrid style of nail & fingers)
    Partly because I also play bass--and fingernails & bass strings don't mix well for me...

    I don't use them often but they are good for what they are designed for. Like when you have a sharp edge on the side on the nail that needs removing (although clippers would work for that too)

    I clip my nails outside on the sundeck so there's no mess. (It also gives me an opportunity to scatter the clippings, because I have an unreasonable fear that they could be used to build a poppet). Generally, once they're clipped, I sit in front of the TV with an emery board to fine-tune the process.

    I hate clipping toenails.....My back just doesn't want to let me bend that way.

    Even though I know it's coming, I'm always surprised how much less effort it is to play guitar right after a fresh finger-nail trim.

    And maybe one will fall in the dirt & grow a fingernail tree!
