A Guide to Choosing the Right Cuticle Nipper for You
When you are looking for a cuticle cutter, one of the things that you will discover is there are a lot to variations to choose from. So even if you have read or have experience how to use cuticle nipper, you may have trouble finding the perfect cuticle nippers. Below are some questions that you should ask yourself so you can choose the right one.
Which blade size is right?
There really is no right answer to this because nipper size is a personal preference. When you choose nippers with a jaw that is smaller, it usually means that you have more control.
In case you are unfamiliar with different nipper blade lengths shown in mm here is a general guide:
3mm is a quarter jaw, 5mm is a half jaw and 7mm is a full jaw. This cuticle nipper is 6mm so it falls right between a half jaw and full jaw in size. This is ideal for a person who wants the best of both lengths.
This cuticle nipper has a blade length of 8mm, making it larger than the full jaw. This is a preference that some people prefer.
Is this handle size right for me?
Choose your nippers’ handle based on your preference and hand size. If your hands are larger you will probably find the larger handle will be more comfortable. Obviously for smaller hands a smaller handle will most likely feel best. This said everything is about preference and always choose which size feels best for you.
This nippers handle is on the smaller size. We recommend it for people with smaller hands or for people who general like to have a smaller handle.
Single spring or dual spring?
The kind of spring you select will depend on your preference for bounce back. The bounce back is less with the single spring and it will bounce away from the handle. There is a greater amount of bounce back with the double spring, and it comes with two springs that bounce off one another.
This cuticle nipper is a dual spring nipper. This makes it perfect for someone who likes to really have the nipper push back open.
Is Quality or Price More Important?
Having a high-quality nipper that will last is going to save you money as years go by. Some cuticle nippers can last as long as 10 years and have blades that you can sharpen over and over. You can get a nipper sharpener or higher a professional services that you can hire to sharpen them for you. The springs are also replaceable.
These nippers are from the STALEKS PRO Classic line. The classic line is their entry level nippers. The blades should last 6 months with daily use.
Is your nipper for personal or professional use?
Finally, you have to think about whether you are buying these nippers for personal or professional use. If you are going to use them in a nail salon, then you want to choose higher quality. They will last longer than then lower quality ones.
These nippers are fantastic but when you are looking for professional cuticle nippers we recommend the Smart or Expert line from STALEKS
