Cut BigToe nail too short, cause Ingrowing toenails?

Hello everyone,

While cutting my nails of my left foot I accidently cut the BigToe so the natural curve now ends with an almost diagonal edge on the right side.

What I want to know is, will this now cause an ingrown toenail and if so what can I do to prevent this occuring?

Thanks to anyone who replies.

Shouldn't...I cut the outside of my right big toe nail this way on purpose as it keeps it from getting ingrown...

But does that mean it'll still grow normally even past the toe?
The sound of corrective surgery doesn't sound too appealing.
