Suggestions on safe nail clippers for infants?

One of my twins has very tough nails and they are both wiggly. As a result I often end up nicking their skin. I have been biting off their nails - not the cleanest cuts and they still are very sharp. I don't find the clippers with bulbous backs to be very easy to grip. Also, don't see the ones with magnifying glass or light to be that helpful...

Any suggestion on safe clippers? Thanks!

I always cut my kids nails once they were asleep (less wiggles) and after a bath which softens the nails. I just used a pair of infant trimmers and did not have any problems with jagged edges.
