"The side edge of toenail curls and pushes down into the soft skin of the toe, causing irritation or infection. Ingrown nails can be caused by abnormal pressure from pointe shoes that are too short or too narrow, by incorrectly trimmed toenails, and by thickened nails caused by pointe work." (The Pointe Book)
