A manicure pusher is one of the main tools that helps to process nails to make them beautiful. A tool up to 15 cm long is a small spatula and hatchet in one person. It is also called a scraper. Just on the one hand it has the shape of a scapula, and on the other - the shape of an hatchet. The shoulder blade allows you to shift the cuticle and cut off the growth of the skin located on the plate of the marigold and called pterygium. Using this part of the pusher prevents the appearance of burrs and allows you to prepare your nails for the extension procedure, namely for applying acrylic and gel to the nails. The hatchet performs the function of cleaning the open tip of the nail and the sides. This part of the tool is actively used to remove layers.
