Tools to Push
If you've ever paid attention when the nail technician works on your nails, you know that treating the cuticles is a two-step process. One step involves pushing back the cuticle, which might be creeping onto the nail bed. Several nail tools allow you to complete this task with ease. A flat-edge cuticle pusher allows you to gently push back your cuticles to reveal more of the nail bed. You may also pick up a pack of disposable manicure sticks, which feature a sturdy and flexible flat end that allows you to easily push back the cuticles. For more long-term use, opt for a stainless steel variety, which also comes with a built-in nail cleaner on the opposite end.
Implements to Trim
Trimming the cuticles is another technique that cleans up your nails and preps them for a perfect manicure. Several implements allow you to trim those nails without any discomfort. Stainless steel cuticle nippers feature narrow blades that give you ultimate precision when shaping your nails. The easy-to-grip handle ensures cuticle trimming is always a safe task. These tools are designed to trim any hangnails as well.
Another way to combat overgrown cuticles is using an implement that resembles a pair of tweezers. These tools allow you to easily grab onto the cuticle and trim it back to reveal your healthy nails. Some trimmers come with a protective sheath, allowing you to safely store the tool and protect the blade in between uses.
