My toe nails are quite thick and can be difficult to clip. I also wear gel nail polish on my toes and this makes them even thicker! My toe clippers were worse than useless and really couldn't cope with clipping my children's nails let alone mine! Whilst shopping in Boots I spotted a set of toe and finger nail clippers made by Tweezerman and decided to buy them. I already own a pair of Tweezerman eye brow tweezers and think they are excellent,so had hesitation in buying this set.
The set comes in a cardboard backed plastic package. The packaging was really awkward to get into and you will need scissors! Inside there are 2 nail clippers;one larger designed for toe nails and a smaller one designed for finger nail clipping. The set is designed for men,although it is beyond me why this is for men! Women have toe nails too! Suffice it to say I think this set is suitable for everyone;including children!
The clippers are made of stainless steel and have the Tweezerman name stamped on the handle. They are really easy to use;flip the black outer hander over and then press down onto your toe or finger nail. The larger toe nail clippers work really well and have no problem in clipping my nails. You are advised to always clip toe nails straight across to avoid ingrowing toe nails. I have also used these on my youngest sons nails with no problem. They are very sharp,so you will need to take care to position them correctly before you press down.
I do not use nail clippers on my finger nails,preferring to nail them into shape. However I do use them to clip my children's nails and they work well. The finger nail clippers do not seem quite so robust as the larger toe nail clippers,but they are sharp.
I paid £12 for this set and think it is on the expensive side. However they do work well and will hopefully (in the case of the larger clippers) last me.
