Looking for some great nail tool essentials? Tweezerman just might be the answer for you!
Tweezerman might be best known for their great tweezers, but they also have some really nice products to keep your nails in tip top shape, and I’ve got them covered today.
The Satin Etched Zebra Clipper Set comes with both a stainless steel fingernail clipper and straight-edge toenail clipper. These super sharp clippers are essentials in anyone’s home.
I have used my share of not so great generic brand clippers and let me tell you, they are definitely not good for your nails. It pays to spend a little more on a quality brand that are very sharp so your nails don’t split. These clip your nails easily without splitting and are 100% sanitizable. Cute zebra print also!
The Satin Etched Zebra Cuticle Nipper might be a “controversial” tool, but a great one nonetheless.
These nippers have a very precise and sharp edge, which is great for clipping off excess dead skin around the cuticles. But be careful because they ARE very sharp, and you don’t want to cut live skin around the cuticles.
The handle have a double-spring action, which makes it easy to use and they’re for lefties or righties.
The Master Tech Ingrown Toenail File and Cleaner looks like a kind of scary dentist tool, no? I actually wasn’t sure what it was when I first saw it!
The rounded tip (on the left) is for cleaning under and around your toenail. The ingrown file (on the right) is for helping to relieve ingrown nails if you have one.
The Pushy is a stainless steel contraption that features a rounded end (on the left) which you use to gently push back your cuticles. The best time to do this is after a shower or bath when your cuticles are soft. The other end is for cleaning under the nail.
This is definitely the best cuticle pusher I have used. I am not a fan of orange sticks because the tip always bends so they become not as good after one use. I have used other stainless steel pushers that have scratched my nails. However this one is really nice because of the rounded curve and it doesn’t scratch at all.
The Pedro Callus Stone is a two-sided ceramic stone featuring a rougher side for stubborn calluses and a softer, finer side for smoothing your skin. It feels nice and durable, like the handle won’t break off after a few uses, which I have had happen to me before with others. It’s also easy to wash.
Overall: Having really good tools that work as they should is a big part in achieving and maintaining nice hands and nails. I really like that these tools are stainless steel, totally sanitizable, and they all feel very sturdy and sharp. For me it’s worth the extra price to have something that will last forever and won’t wreak havoc on your nails.
