Basic set for manicure
Apr 30, 2018
All of us at least once saw a manicure set and for certain time and again wondered: what is this or that device intended for? If we do not have doubts about scissors and saw blades, then tweezers, a spatula and a spear to a beginner in the manicure case can not tell anything.
Approximately the same is true with nail polishes. An incredible number of colors, textures and functions can permanently confuse even the master of the manicurist who has seen it. Plus to this - a diverse range of nail care products, liquids for removing varnish and false nails. How here not to get confused?. ..
However, everything in this world has its own regularity - it is also in a rich choice of means for manicure and nail care. The standard manicure set includes:
Scissors for cutting nail corners and - thinner ones - for cutting cuticles( with trimmed manicure).
The blade is usually metal, but the era of such saw files has irrevocably passed. Everyone already knows that metal files destroy the structure of the nail and therefore it begins to separate. It is much more effective and safer to use saws with Teflon or silver coating, finely abrasive files. Also it is necessary to add a polishing nail file to the set to give a shine to the nail.
Spear - serves to lift the cuticle from the nail plate for its subsequent circumcision. Usually a spear in a manicure set must be sharpened before use, otherwise it will crumple and tear the cuticle and complicate the process of its removal.
Shoulder - it is convenient to push the cuticle off with an unedged manicure. Like a spear, the blade requires pre-sharpening.
Scissors( nippers) - serve to remove nail corners, as well as to cut a thick layer of skin around the nail.
The "orange" stick is a special wand made of orange wood, which successfully replaces both the spear and the shoulder blade, and in some cases the saw. It will never damage the nail and will not damage the skin.
The brush is also a new guest in the set. It is designed for cleaning dirt from under the nails.
