For Nunez, a good manicure requires high-quality tools that will last. Stainless steel nails clippers and files are a smart buy, especially ones that feature dual-sided textures—one side is coarse to buff away calluses, while the other smooths and shapes.

Cuticle Pushers

A cuticle pusher is used to gently and safely push back the nail and skin surrounding the base of each fingernail. It helps prevent hangnails and makes it easier to apply polish.

Cuticle pushers are available with curved and flat ends, and some have a spoon-shaped tip. They are typically crafted from stainless steel to resist corrosion and reduce waste. KADS Nail Art offers a rust-proof stainless steel cuticle pusher that is engineered to last a lifetime.

Before using the tool, it is important to soften the cuticles with a cuticle remover. Also, the utensil should be clean and sanitized before and after use to avoid bacteria build-up. If you are not careful, attempting to push back cuticles with your fingers can damage the nails and cause infections.

Cuticle Nippers

Unlike pushers, which only stimulate and loosen cuticles, nippers cut away excess tissue that is growing over the nail plate. This helps keep the nail healthy and reduces fungus or infection risks.

Nippers typically have curved blades for easier cutting. They’re also smaller and more compact than nail scissors or clippers. This makes them easy to maneuver in tight spots, such as underneath the nails or around the corners of a nail.

Nippers should be kept sharp to avoid tearing the skin. They can be sharpened with a whetstone or sandpaper. Nail technicians should wipe the nippers before and after every use to keep them clean and hygienic. This is important to help prevent spreading nail fungus or other infections to clients. This is why it’s recommended that new technicians practice on themselves before using the nippers on clients.

Nail Clippers

A nail clipper is a tool used to trim fingernails and toenails. They typically have curved or straight blades, depending on the type of nails being cut. The best nail clippers have strong, sharp stainless steel blades that can cut nails without nicking or damaging the skin around them. They should be easy to hold and operate, with long levers and textured handles that provide a good grip for accurate cutting.

Nail scissors, also known as manicure scissors, are a popular alternative to nippers or clippers for trimming nails and hangnails. These are often a bit more expensive than clippers, but are comfortable and easier to control, especially with the nondominant hand. They also cut nails more precisely and result in a smoother cut than nippers.

Nail Files

Nail files are used to shape nails and smooth the edges. They are available in many different grits, and they can be used on natural nails as well as acrylics. Files that are too harsh can cause nails to split, so it is important to choose a gentle nail file.

Glass nail files are the professional choice for manicures. They seal the keratin layers together, minimizing chipping. They are also hygenic, durable and easy to clean. They are a must have for every nail technician!

Keeping nails filed and free of debris will ensure that the product you apply isn’t being pushed up against weakened nails. It’s also a good idea to disinfect your nail files on a weekly basis. This will help prevent the spread of infections among clients.

Tweezers

Tweezers are small hand tools used to grasp objects too small to be handled by a finger. They are especially useful for removing splinters and plucking eyebrow hairs.

They come in a range of sizes, shapes and colors, from fun-colored tweezers to more traditional black and silver models. Children who learn to use tweezers benefit from an activity that improves hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and executive function abilities like focus and self-control.

ESD safe tweezers are made of a static dissipative material or have a coating to limit the peak current at which static discharge occurs, preventing sparks. They’re ideal for working with electronics or handling components during cleaning, chemical and assembly processes. They also have a high heat capability and are corrosion resistant.
