Halocho #1128 - Cutting nails during the 3 weeks?

One may cut one's nails during the 3 weeks, until the week in which 9 B'Av falls. 

On each Shabbat of the "3 weeks" we read a Haftara in which the prophet warned about the destruction of the Bet Hamikdash. 

The first week (this week - פִּינְחָס) we read the first chapter of יִרְמְיָהוּ, which is the Haftara for מַּטּוֹת in most Chumashim. 

The second week we read most of the second chapter of יִרְמְיָהוּ. 

The third week we read the the first chapter of יְשַׁעְיָהוּ i.e. חֲזוֹן; most of it in the sad tune that Megilat אֵיכָה is read.
