Questions & Answers for SEPHORA COLLECTION Nail Cuticle Tool

Is one end of this curved to mimic the shape of the nail?
I have a tweezerman pushy and both ends are flat. It is not kind to the cuticle.

If by curved you mean concave, no, it isn't. One end is rounded, however, and works well in the "corners" of the nail. The other end has a wedge shape, which you can use either wedge down to merely push back, or wedge up to scrape off the thin cuticle overgrowth like I get way out on my nails. Or you can use that end to clean beneath your nails.

switch to the Sephora brand and buy that one. The rounded tip is for the rounded edge of your nail bed. The straight is to take care of over grown cuticles. You might "shave off" more than you need to if you are not used to this tip.

One end of it is curvy which is to push the cuticle down; the other end is flatter and has a slant to it - that is to clean that same area but press lightly. I got it right by the 3rd nail. HA! Another great thing is that you clean it with alcohol and it's sanitized. You can't beat stainless steel!

You can use the round end to push back cuticles or to get underneath your nails and clear dirt.

i use the rounded tip for 90% of the time to clean your nail/push your cuticle back. the square end i use only for those hard to reach corners or the stubborn cuticle that won't budge....definitely use the round most of the time.

cuticle tool
What is the right way to use this tol. One side is very sharp the other is not. If I push my cuticles with the sharp side up it literally shaves my nail or maybe that is removing my overgrown cuticle. ? I end up with ragged cuticles. Thanks

Use the round-nail shape edge to push back the cuticles without cutting the skin or your nail. However if you have a stubborn cuticle that does not push back with the rounded edge, carefully use the square shaped edge to cut/push the skin away from the nail.

I had exactly the same problem too, where it was shaving off my nails. It is way too sharp. I would suggest trading it in for the Tweezerman nail tool. It is almost the same tool except it isn't sharp enough to cut into your nails.

Use the rounded end! That's what I use and it is more gentle on the cuticles. If you use the rounded end and it still makes a ragged edge, use a cuticle trimmer to clean them up again.

Which one to order?
The description only lists one Nail Cuticle Tool, but there are 2 different product numbers that can be added to the cart. What is the difference between the 2? They are both the same price.

I looked around at the local Sephora store, and there is only one tool like that, that I could find. I suspect it may be an inadvertent double listing, or else they have it listed in two different categories, with a number for each category.
