Multitasking is a way of life in today’s high-speed world, and nail implements are no exception. From double-sided nail art brushes to triple-tasking pterygium removers, the ingenuity behind these inventions makes you wonder what they’ll think of next. Here’s a sampling of some of the latest multitask implements to help you speed through your workday.
Created by Spilo’s executive vice president, Rosalyn A. Barton, the new Mehaz Roz Cuticle Nipper and Pusher features a cuticle nipper with one handle extended to include a cuticle pusher on the end. The pusher’s rounded edge is for pushing back the cuticle, then the nail technician flips the implement around to use the nipper. It is made of stainless steel and comes in ¼” and ½” jaw sizes.
Nouveau Nail’s #9 Combo Pusher/Cleaner features a 9mm spoon pusher to push back cuticles with precision, and a cleaner head to effectively clean under and around nails. The tool is made of 100% Japanese stainless steel, and is guaranteed rust-free for life, says the company.
Nubar’s Double-Sided Ingrown Nail File helps techs treat painful ingrown toenails. The curved file helps you lift and then file the ingrown nail, and the other side has a straight and thinner file to further remove the problem nail area. It is made of stainless steel and can be used in wet or dry conditions.
Though only one-sided, OPI’s Pusher Plus implement has a sharper edge on the cuticle spoon so it can function as a basic cuticle pusher when positioned at the center of the nail and pushed forward, and as a cleaner when the tool is pulled back from the cuticle area. The sharper edge will help remove more cuticle from the nail plate.
Tweezerman’s Master Tech Dual Contoured Pusher features both small and medium contoured pushing ends that conform to the individual size and shape of each nail. The tool can push back cuticles without scratching the nail or injuring the delicate cuticle area. The ends are also buffed smooth for gentle and easy cleaning.
Young Nails’ Magic Wand has three tools for four functions. The spoon side gently pushes cuticles back. Flip it over and the edge of the blade scrapes away any protein built up around the cuticle area. The reverse pincher is used to squeeze perfect C-curves, and the pinchers can also be used to hold a nail tip after applying glue
