How to choose the nail cutter?
If you are also looking for a nail cutter that is suitable for your needs, I absolutely recommend that you read this post.
The cutter is perhaps the most delicate manicure products and to which more attention must be paid in the selection phase, there are many aspects to consider, and not always so evident at first sight.
But, the 4 aspects that you absolutely must look at when buying are:
1.rotation speed and power
3.weight of the handpiece
4.tip locking system
The rotation speed is expressed in revolutions per minute (rpm), and indicates the maximum number of rotations that the tip can perform in one minute.
A professional nail cutter should have a rotation speed of at least 30,000 rpm, because it will allow you to work easily both on gel and acrylic reconstructions, or even on pedicures and manicures, in total comfort and safety.
Having a cutter with a high number of revolutions at your disposal does not mean that you must always use it to the maximum, on the contrary … it means that you will have more working modes available, and that you can adapt the speed based on the operating needs that you find yourself in face up to.
Vibrations are one of the most problematic aspects of nail cutters, especially inexpensive ones.
When a cutter vibrates a lot, in addition to being decidedly uncomfortable and annoying to use, it can also damage your client’s nail, as well as making the work imprecise and unprofessional.
The characteristics of the handpiece will be those that will make you love or hate your new bur.
I know it may seem trivial, but the weight of the handpiece has a huge impact on the quality of your work, especially towards the end of the day.
The differences in weight, on paper, may seem negligible, and maybe 100 grams more may seem bearable, but from experience I assure you that if you buy a nail cutter, with a very heavy handpiece, you will want to get rid of it as soon as possible.
There are two types of locking systems:
Interlocking, to be clear you will have to push the tip all the way down by exerting pressure
Locking or self-locking. you unlock the mechanism to insert the tip and re-lock it once inserted.
It goes without saying that the second closure is the safest, it also guarantees that the tip is perfectly inserted and fixed, but more importantly it allows you to replace the tips very very quickly.
Hoping to have been helpful, I hug you and look forward to seeing in the next article.
