Essential manicure tools in all the best nail kits
Our selection of nail kits have every tool you need to keep your nails strong and healthy with proper nail hygiene and maintenance.
With so many manicure sets and gel nail kits for sale in South Africa, picking the right one can be tough.
Any good nail starter kit should include the following nail tools, for a perfect at-home manicure.
Good quality nail clippers
Every manicure begins with a pair of excellent nail clippers.
Not all clippers are created equal. The blades of low-quality nail clippers can become dull after as few as four uses. This makes them more likely to damage your nails.
It’s worth having a higher-quality pair in your nail grooming kit.
The best nail clippers have these features:
they’re made of stainless steel construction
they’re designed so your thumb doesn’t slip off the push-down bar
they have curved blades for comfort
Cuticles should never be cut. However, they need special care to prevent them from becoming dry or flaky.
A cuticle pusher is a simple steel or wooden tool that’s used to push the skin back and away. It’s a useful tool in any home or travel nail kit.
How to use a cuticle pusher
Use the spoon end to push the cuticles back. Then use the sharper end to push against the cuticles, around the corners.
A cuticle nipper is a manicure kit must-have. It’s used for precision cutting and trimming of tough cuticles and hangnails.
Cuticle nippers are especially useful for trimming in-grown nails.
How to use a cuticle nipper
Once the cuticle has been pushed back, nip any dead skin. Then use an upward motion to trim it back and away from the nail.
A nail file is used to smooth the edges of nails and grind them down to create the desired shape.
Nail files are made from various materials each with their own pros and cons.
Types of nail files
Types of nail files include:
- metal nail files – durable and easy to clean, but can weaken nails
- emery boards – readily available and affordable, but difficult to clean
- glass nail files – a professional choice that’s effective and hygienic, but more expensive.
