Cuticles: should they be cut or pushed back?

As a nail professional, even though it is an essential step in any good self-respecting manicure, cutting, trimming or pulling cuticles would actually be a very bad idea. Below, your expert nail supplier will explain to you why.

The cuticle is a very thin layer of skin which is found around the nail and which covers the nail matrix. Its role is to ensure the protection of the nail matrix, in other words the base of the nails.

Cuticles serve to protect nail regrowth from bacterial and fungal infections. It is therefore necessary to take the greatest care of it.

Sometimes cuticles can be unsightly and can be pushed back very gently. This method is also painless. For this, it is necessary to have suitable tools such as a cuticle pusher.

Made of wood, metal or acrylic, the cuticle pusher is a stick which, as its name suggests, allows you to push back the small skin around the nail using its rounded tip.

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure sets to care for your cuticles.
