It's a question of undergoing the relevant training to be insured to use scissors and clippers which count as sharps, so there is a risk of infection if you accidentally cut or if the nail bed is damaged in any way (which is actually extremely easy to do accidentally especially on older clients). You will need to be qualified as a nail technician which I guess is at least level 2. Good luck!
