Cuticle Nippers are a specialized tool designed to trim hang nails and dry, dead skin built up around the nail bed. Cuticle nippers are used in preparation for any nail treatment.
Soak Your Cuticles
Prepare you cuticles by soaking your fingers in warm water for 5 minutes to soften your cuticles.
Push Back Cuticles
Now roll back and lift your cuticles from nail plate using a cuticle knife or cuticle pusher.
Clip Excess Dry Skin
Remove the excess cuticle and dry skin surrounding the nail by place the nippers over the excess cuticle. Firmly closing the blade of the nipper, then release and pull away. Make sure not to pull away before releasing because you can rip your cuticle if it is not fully clipped.
Buff Away Build-up & Imperfections
Lastly, remove any build up that may be left over and smooth imperfections with a nail buffing block using the rougher side.
