Cuticle nippers, also known as cuticle clippers or cuticle trimmers, are tools used in manicures and pedicures to trim and remove excess cuticle tissue from around the nails. The cuticle is the thin layer of skin that forms a protective seal between the nail plate and the surrounding skin.
Cuticle nippers are typically small, hand-held instruments with sharp blades and spring-loaded handles. They are designed to precisely and safely trim away any excess or overgrown cuticles, helping to improve the overall appearance of the nails and promote healthier nail growth. It is important to use cuticle nippers carefully and avoid cutting too close to the live tissue to prevent any damage or injury to the skin.« Back to Glossary Index
