Continuing on with my review of the Tweezerman mani/pedi kit I have the Satin Etched Cuticle Nipper to show ye today. I’ll just go straight into it J
“The sturdy design is reinforced by its rock-hard, stainless steel construction and features sharp, long lasting snipping tips for smooth cutting action”
Again the design on the nipper is clean and simple. The zebra etching isn’t as noticeable as it is on the clippers but again it is nice. The logo is reserved for the head of the nippers along with it’s origins. It comes with a little rubber cap to place on top. This protects the tip of the nipper and also the packaging or bag you use to store it in(also your fingers when you go to grab them). Great idea!
The nipper is so light weight. You can just put it in your bag or pocket and you would barely feel it. It’s small and thin enough to fit in most spaces so you won’t have to worry about making room for it.
This is actually might first ever experience of a nipper (I keep writing nipple haha) but I have seen them mentioned on other nail blogs. I found it really easy to use. It was so easy to hold and it takes little effort to nip off the cuticle. It is sharp enough to quickly deal with the cuticle but I would say that you need to take your time. You won’t slice yourself open with it but it does sting a bit if you catch the skin around the finger so be careful :P I know from experience hah I was trying to be all professional like the big bloggers and just started snipping away. Lesson learnt :D
I have to say it does leave your cuticles looking lovely and smooth if you take the time to do them properly ie cuticle softener, pushing them back and then cutting and moisturizing. I have been trying to perfect my technique and they look great but then I don’t moisturize and it totally ruins all my hard work.
I can't find the exact pair on the tweezerman website but the Rockhard version costs: $ 25
Overall I really like this. It works for me and I love the result. Would I say it is vital that you have one? No, not really. I’ve never had one before and I got along fine without it but now that I’m blogging I think it is better if I use one especially with my cuticles. If it’s something that you think you would like that I highly recommend this one, if not then just ignore me :P
