The inner part of the rabbit's nail that is a different color is called the quick, and this is where the nerves and blood vessels are contained so be very careful not to trim below this mark.
If your rabbit doesn't settle for you to cut their nails, this is the only time we recommend you put your bunny into a "shock" position. This is where the rabbit is lifted onto their backs, it puts the rabbit into a trance and keeps them still. If you can avoid doing this and you're rabbit is brave then it is recommended you do it in the most convenient and least unsettling way for the rabbit.
Please, please, please do not do this regularly! It should only be done to rabbits having their nails cut or in other scenarios when your rabbits best interests are at heart. We see so many pictures of rabbits on their backs, looking "cute". This is far from the case and these rabbits are actually in a severe state of shock!
With the clippers below you can be sure to make a clean and sharp cut, this allows the nail to be cut straight and with the least amount of pain to your rabbit. Do not use cheap, low quality clippers to cut your rabbit's nails. This is the largest mistake we see people making and can be avoided by just paying a one off cost for some great quality clippers that will last.
Don't worry if you followed all of this advice but still accidentally cut the nail too short, use some flour or styptic powder to stem the bleeding. Your rabbit will heal but it will take some time, keep checking on them after application to make sure they are in good health.
