Denco's 2404 Scissor-style Cuticle Nipper is made in Italy and features a unique, hybrid form. The “business end” of the tool is a half jaw cuticle nipper, but the handle features finger holes instead of the traditional nipper arms. If you like the action of cuticle scissors but want the cutting power of a nipper, you'll love this style!
If you like the quick results of a cuticle nipper but prefer a scissor-style grip, then this nipper will be a good choice. The blade length is between 6 and 7 mm (half jaw).
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 a cuticle pusher or manicure stick. Remember to be gentle and only push back the excess that is creeping onto the nail plate.
3. Use the tips of the Cuticle Nipper to carefully trim the excess cuticle that has been pushed back and any hangnails.
4. Finish by rubbing your favorite cuticle oil or lotion into the skin around your nails.
It's best to keep your nippers clean and the action smooth. You can wipe the tips with a dry cloth to remove debris or sterilize these nippers by swabbing the cutting edges with rubbing alcohol. If the cutting action begins to feel less smooth, open the nippers wide and place a drop of oil in the joint. Work the oil in by gently closing and opening the handles. Then wipe any excess from the surface of the nippers with a cloth.
