When it comes to beauty tools, I’m very much of the mindset of you get what you pay for. I bought the Tweezerman Rockhard Cuticle Nipper as a replacement for one of my holy grail beauty tools; the Tweezerman Grip & Snip Spiral Spring Cuticle Nipper. I’ve had mine for five years, and it’s one of my most used beauty tools, but it had started to lose its sharpness, so I decided to try something different.
The Tweezerman Grip & Snip Spiral Spring Cuticle Nipper is £30 which is expensive for a cuticle nipper as you can get them for around £5 on eBay for non-branded versions.
The Tweezerman version is spring loaded, comfortable to use and does an amazing job at snipping any hangnails or cuticles, and I used mine pretty much daily for six years.
“Sharp and durable, the Rockhard Cuticle Nipper is key for at-home manicures. High performance blades make trimming cuticles easy. 1/2 jaw size.“
The Tweezerman Rockhard Cuticle Nipper is £30, just like the other set of cuticle nippers. Tweezerman still sell the spring loaded nippers, but I wanted to try this version incase it was actually better than the set I’d had for six years.
These don’t have the large spring handle. Instead they have two silver metallic handles, and when you’re using them, the tapered ends of the handles do feel uncomfortable in the palms during use, and I don’t know why, but they’re not as sharp as the Tweezerman Grip & Snip Spiral Spring Cuticle Nipper either.
I’m gutted I bought these over the Grip & Snip Nippers as these no way near as good, and they’re uncomfortable to use. I really wish I’d just repurchased the nippers I liked, as these end up pulling the skin, instead of just snipping it, and it draws blood very easily. They’re a little disappointing to be honest, and I’ll stick with what I already know and love.
