Fingertips all jacked up after too much practicing - any advice?

After a weekend of practice my left-hand fingertips always look like hell (see pic). Aside from just looking gross, the tough skin is catching on anything/everything. I can't be trusted near silk shirts or ties, it pulls the threads.

Any tips for preventing or mitigating that? What I don't want is to moisturize them to a point where the skin is soft, having built up hard fingertips is what prevents pain and gives ability to play long gigs for hours. I just wanted to avoid the splitting and snags on everything, or at least an easier way to cut them off cleanly (trying with nail clippers but not good or tidy results).
