Cut nails, bleeding, infection, became worse, treated for cellulitis. Common infection?

I cut my nails down to the point it was bleeding which later became infected. The infection became worse and was treated for cellulitis . It was treated with an antibiotic shot and went away in a few days. I have never had this before and concerned it may be related to something more serious. Is this type of infection common?
