The Versatility and Efficiency of Wooden Cuticle Pushers
One simple yet handy tool on my desk is a new wooden cuticle pusher. It has become essential to my nail technician toolkit for several reasons. In this blog post, I'll share why I love using wooden cuticle pushers and how they have improved my nail care routine.
- Gently pushing back cuticles: When it comes to cuticle care, the soft wood of a wooden cuticle pusher proves to be a game-changer. It offers a gentler alternative to metal pushers, especially for clients with sensitive skin. The softness of the wood allows for a more delicate touch while effectively pushing back cuticles.
- Clean-up made easy: We all know how crucial it is to keep gel off the skin, but accidents can happen even to the most advanced nail techs. The key is to prepare for a variety of situations. That's where the wooden cuticle pusher comes in. When gel accidentally gets on the skin, I reach for my trusty wooden pusher stick. It quickly soaks up the uncured liquid product, ensuring a clean and precise result. I always perform this step before using alcohol and a brush for further cleaning. The porous nature of the wood enables it to absorb the liquid faster and more efficiently than a wet brush, leaving the skin ready for a final clean. It's important to note that it is still essential to clean with 100% alcohol and have the client wash their hands after the service, and before applying cuticle oil, to reduce continued exposure to uncured product.
- Moving charms and nail art: The benefits of a wooden cuticle pusher extend beyond cuticle care. The pointed end of the tool has various creative purposes. For instance, I often utilize the pointy end to move charms or gems around before they set. It allows for precise adjustments and ensures flawless nail art. Additionally, the pointed end doubles as a dotting tool, enabling quick and easy nail art designs. Our luxury dotting tool set is also available for those looking for more nail art options!
