SUWADA Original Nail Nipper
If you use nippers, you will be surprised by the looks and performance of this model. If you have never used them before, you are about to have a treat!
Handmade, with sharp curved blades that make a clean cut, without straining the nail.
Made of high-carbon stainless steel, the same material used to forge custom-made Japanese kitchen knives. They are strong, rustproof, and easy to maintain.
Hand polished to a matt finish by Japanese craftsmen. After gathering three design awards it quickly became the most popular tool for nail artists in Tokyo and Osaka. The matt finish by Suwada has now become an industry standard for such tools, impossible to replicated by automated machines.
The blade opening is between 17 and 20mm, making it useful to safely clean dirty nails underneath.
The lines on the handles are designed to improve stability, making sure the skin never comes in contact with the blades.
It comes with a metal case for safe storage.
Caution: the blades are very sharp indeed and fully aligned. Keep away from kids and do not use it on anything other than nails.
How to use a nipper like a beauty salon professional
Cut your nails after a bath or a warm shower so that they are softer than usual. Alternatively, soak your fingers or toes in warm water for 5-10 minutes.
Hold the nipper firmly on one hand and decide what shape you want your nails to have. Make small cuts around the nail, without going very close to the skin. Don't cut too much and always allow a little room between the edge of your nail and the soft finger tissue below it, especially near the corners of the nail. Let the corners grow more if you are experiencing ingrown nails.
If you use a Suwada nipper you won't need to file your nails afterward. The cut is very smooth, thanks to the hard material and the alignment of the blades.
