In terms of nail-care products, these are heavy duty, so if you are hesitant about using a device that will nip your cuticles it might be in your best interest to look into a cuticle remover formula first.

Use

If you are a person who frequently deals with hangnails or has a large mass of cuticle on your nail after using a file, then cuticle nippers are your best bet to get rid of the excess quickly. Use the nippers as if they were very small scissors, simply go around the edge of your nail and pick off the end of the cuticle in small portions. When done correctly, you should clip around edges several times for each nail. It is important not to go too deep into the nail because this will cut off too much skin, look bad, and be very painful. It is recommended that beginners start with a dull pair before moving to a sharp one, this will allow you to practice without cutting yourself too badly. Also, Tweezerman Cuticle Nippers are great for parents with kids who get a lot of hang nails, just make sure you do the clipping when helping them out.

Sterilize

After and before using Tweezerman Cuticle Nippers, or any form of cuticle nippers, it is important that you sterilize them with an alcohol solution. If you do not, and cut too deep with your nippers, the potential to get an infection is great.
