Is it ok to be cutting nails on the Tube?

On a busy morning commute, I was rather appalled when a woman sat next to me began to clip her fingernails. At first, I thought she might be trimming one quickly, but I think she ended up cutting them all  – and I’m not sure she caught them all as they fell. Should I have felt this way though? Or should I just accept it as normal behaviour on the Underground?
