I had a home groomer come to my house and help me. I held Hamm on my lap and she clipped (he eventually fell asleep when she started his first front paw). I don't know if it'd be that easy on my own, though.
For my cats I bribe the heck outta them. Skooma was fine and I can easily do her front and back no prob with only one treat afterwards. Sugar has touching issues so, on top of training her to be touched, I trained her that no matter what she did, those nails were being clipped. A treat before the clip, waiting for her to go into trauma cat mode, then a treat after the fact. I still can't do her back nails but it's progress (it took a towel, me and the groomer to hold her down for those... she earned every penny of that fee).
