Whether creating a gel manicure, a half-moon manicure, or a quick and easy DIY manicure at home, you should always start with the base: the nail itself! In order to achieve the ideal manicure and pedicure, you need your favourite nail care tools.
We’ve compiled a cheat sheet of essential tools in the game to help you pull off that new design with ease.
Below are our favourite 4 tools needed for manicures and pedicures:
- Metal Nail File
Using a metal file instead of a cardboard one won’t fray nails and is easier to clean. No matter the shape you’re going for, a metal file is the best tool for optimal results.
- Buffer Block
These scratchy tools can help even the roughest of nails. They smooth, add luster, and create shine on bare nails at a moment’s notice.
- Cuticle Cutter
Cut ties with all that extra baggage! This handy tool takes the pain out of removing hangnails and possesses a tilted blade so you never accidentally over-cut.
Very underrated in the world of manis and pedis, this tool is a vital part of all pampering. It pushes the cuticle back while evening it out and can also be used to clear debris from underneath nails.
