Stypic does burn. To be honest, I find it just hurts. With as much as many of our quilled ones hate having their feet touched, its just not worth the risk of having them associate that additional pain with nail clipping or for that matter you, as you did it to them, when there is a pretty darn good substitute in many kitchens already.
