I agree with everyone, the nails look just fine. I work as a dog bather, so I trim dog nails of all sorts all day and I would say you COULD get a little more length off, but the length they are is decent.
Usually, with black nails you can feel where the nail clipper wants to hook with the nail and you can trim it there, angled slightly up from how the nail would rest on the ground. It's really hard to explain through text.
I think the best gauge you can use would be watching the bullseyes on the inside of the nails. Plus, once you have determined where one quick is, the rest are usually at about the same spot (for front feet, or for back feet), so you can be more assured with your cuts. Good luck!
