A lot of recommendations are to cut the toe nails "straight across". 

Personally I dislike corners sticking out and getting caught on stuff, so I follow the contour of the nail beds, and usually trim a little skin near the ends of the big toenails. 

Short toenails may also help prevent conditions such as toenail fungus.
