Denco’s 2272 Cuticle Trimmer features an extra-sharp, v-shaped blade and a lightweight, comfortable handle. If you’re looking for a convenient and inexpensive way to keep your cuticles and hangnails under control, look no further. The back of the easy-to-hold, contoured handle works like a cuticle pusher, and the blade slides gently along the nail plate to remove unwanted cuticles and tidy up painful hangnails. An included storage sleeve protects the tool when it's not in use and makes it great for travel.
If you have fast-growing cuticles that need to be trimmed often and you like the convenience of a lightweight, inexpensive tool, this cuticle trimmer is a good choice. With no moving parts, it's as easy as sliding the v-shaped blade over your unwanted cuticles and hangnails.
1. Wash your hands in warm, soapy water or use after a shower or bath. Clean, softened cuticles are the goal.
2. Gently push back your cuticles with the rounded end (bottom) of the Cuticle Trimmer's handle or a manicure stick. Remember to be gentle and only push back the excess that is creeping onto the nail plate.
3. Place the v-shaped blade of the Cuticle Trimmer on your nail plate at a 45 degree angle and slide it gently, from sidewall to sidewall, across the excess cuticle that has been pushed back. Use caution and do not trim toward the the base of your finger (where your live cuticle is). Do not apply firm pressure; the blade should slide across the nail plate without scratching it.
Carefully wipe the Cuticle Trimmer blade with a dry towel or cloth to remove any trimmed skin or debris. The blade can also be swabbed with rubbing alcohol to disinfect. Allow it to air dry before storing it in the protective pouch.
