I’ve also found that with these easily bent nails, to cut them off leaving maybe 1/8” sticking out. Now when you tap it with a hammer, it’s less likely to bend and the nail head will pop out the other side. Take your time whatever you do. Carbide saw blades pretty much eat these things up, but planer blades don’t.

Pulling the nail thru like the other guys have suggested works great as well and won’t leave your top surface marred as much.
