With our guide to correctly diagnosing and working with Cuticle Nipper, you can safeguard the health of both your clients and yourself. The question “What exactly is the cuticle?” is the one that leads to the most common misunderstanding in relation to cuticles. 

Three components of Cuticle Nipper:

You’ll see three components of Cuticle Nipper that are highly significant: the nail matrix, the eponychium, and the cuticle.If you think you know, you should probably rethink that assumption because many nail technicians refer to the erroneous area of the nail when they talk about the cuticle.

The nail matrix should first identified: 

Below the eponychium is a little region of live tissue that is responsible for the production of nail cells. The eponychium’s primary function is to defend the nail matrix from anything that can cause an infection in the nail matrix. The difference between the eponychium and the cuticle is something that throws off many people who work in the nail industry.

“Nail Structure and Product Chemistry,” Doug Schoon, chief scientific advisor at CND and author of the book of the same name, describes the eponychium as the patch of live skin that surrounds the base of the nail plate. 

Non-living tissue:

It is easy to confuse this with the cuticle, which is the non-living tissue that attaches to the nail plate and is often called the free edge. Because Schoon states that the cuticle shed from the underside of the eponychium, it may appear as though the two are the same thing. However, readers should take note that this is not the case. When getting a manicure, you can pull back the eponychium to expose the cuticle and then remove it, but you should never place an instrument just underneath the nail fold itself. This can result in an injury as well as an infection.

Cuticle care components:

Cuticle care is an essential component of any nail service; but, in order for it to be beneficial, it must first performed correctly. Continue reading to find out what a nail technician ought to do to provide proper cuticle care for their clients.

How to Remove a Cuticle in the Correct Manner:

After removing any nail polish or product from the nails, start preparing the nails by applying cuticle remover and then bathing the hands in warm water containing a soak designed to soften the skin and cuticles. After the hands have soaked, apply cuticle remover to the nails. After a few minutes, take your hands out of the solution and dry them off with a fresh towel.

Pick the instrument you’ll use:

Either an orangewood stick or a metal cuticle pusher in the shape of a spoon, which is more effective and requires less effort to use, can used to push back cuticles. The orangewood stick is a tried-and-true option, particularly in jurisdictions that prohibit the use of implements made of metal.

Maintain a Stable Grip: 

To maintain a stable grip, you should hold your instrument in the same manner that you would hold a pencil and keep your grip light yet firm. Put the point of the instrument up against the eponychium, and then apply some light pressure to it. The eponychium needs to pushed back so that the cuticle can seen. Continue in this manner with the remaining nails. Before you push the cuticle, it is important to make sure that any rough or sharp edges on the pusher have filed down with a nail file. If you are using a pusher, services.

Applying enhancements:

Now that the cuticle has exposed, the non-living tissue on the nail plate can removed off the nail plate. If you are applying enhancements, any leftover cuticle will prevent the product from adhering to the nail plate, which will result in the enhancements lifting off of the nail. It is also problematic for a straightforward polishing process.

Flat scraper blade:

The use of a curette, a flat scraper blade, or an orangewood stick are the three tools that Schoon suggests for effectively removing the cuticle. It is not difficult to scrape off the non-living tissue with the assistance of cuticle remover, and doing so will not damage the nail plate in the process. 

When removing the cuticle, neither nippers nor an electric file should used. The friction caused by the electric file has the potential to eat through the nail plate. Nippers should only used for the purpose of removing a dead skin tag, which is a small piece of dead skin that sticks up around the nails. Nippers may found in most drug stores.

Tag the right way:

If you want to get rid of a dead skin tag the right way, you should use a pair of nippers with a very sharp blade and cut the dead skin above the level of the living skin. Avoid grabbing and pulling on the dead skin tag; instead, use the sharp blades of the nippers to make a clean cut.
