It's not easy to replicate salon-style manicures at home, but it’s not impossible. With a professional manicure set, you can recreate those flawless nails in your client’s living room.

But with so many nail manicure tools online, how do you know which ones to get? In this blog, we talk about the basic nail manicure tools professionals use at salon and some tips for selecting the best ones to help you safely and confidently do your client’s manicures at home.

  • Cuticle tool - This tool creates a longer-looking nail bed and cleans the cuticle area. Look for one that is contoured, thin and hand-filed; this way, you can easily exfoliate the nail plate while pushing back the cuticles with minimal pressure applied.
  • Cuticle nipper - Safely remove hangnails, dry skin around the nails, and tough cuticles with a cuticle nipper. Choose one with a protective titanium coating to prevent rusting and bacteria growth. It should have ultra-thin, hand-filled 4mm sharp blades with pointed tips to avoid tearing or snagging.
  • Nail nipper - Your professional manicure set isn’t complete without a heavy-duty nail nipper with hand-filed sharp blades to cut the thickest toenails. Look for one with ergonomic grip control and double-spring action handles.
  • Cuticle pusher - Look for a dual cuticle pusher with a contoured, round end that follows the shape of your nail. The other end should be flat and thin to push back and exfoliate the cuticle. It should have a protective titanium coating to make it hygienic and not prone to rusting.
  • Cuticle curette - A cuticle curette should have super-thin edges to effectively and gently clean under the nails and remove cuticles from a nail plate. Look for one with a thin profile to make it useful for cleaning hard-to-reach crevices on your toenails without damaging or scratching your nail.

When in doubt, get a professional manicure set

Save time and money by purchasing a complete set of nail manicure tools professionals swear by. It should come with all the basics, such as the cuticle curette, dual cuticle pusher, nail scissors, clipper, nipper, and a cuticle nipper. Some sets even have tool care essentials for cleaning your nail manicure tools after each use.
