Changing from nippers to scissors
The main difference between nippers and our KB cuticle scissors is that so much less pressure is required and a more delicate hand motion. As nippers are clumpier, heavier and stiffer a much stronger and whole hand grip is required and more force is needed to achieve results. With our curved cuticle scissors they are more lightweight and delicate (to work perfectly on the delicate cuticle area) and the pivot point on the scissors is so well made that the cutting motion is really smooth, meaning you can just use your thumb and finger/2 fingers just like tweezers. This is so much better on your hands in the long run too. And also your customers hands too. Many of our customers have reported a visible improvement in their RSI, carpal tunnel syndrome and other hand and wrist issues since changing from nippers.
See what our customers have to say after transitioning from nippers to KB cuticle scissors:
"They are easy to use and you have clear visibility and absolute precision that you don't get with nippers..I have the whole set including pusher and they are insane".
"For cuticles I would go for Katie Barnes curved cuticle scissors, they are super light and sharp and make for more precise cuticle cutting. I feel much more confident using these compared with nippers as you can really see what you are doing as your hand or the blades aren't in the way".
"I have had no issues at all. I like them cause there small and fit inside my hands but very sharp".
"I have [another brands] nippers and scissors and they are great, but I bought the Katie Barnes cuticle curved scissors and they are a game changer , so delicate and precise, no fear of cutting the skin, highly recommend them".
"I bought the cuticle scissors and they are fab, much easier then using nippers as you can really see what you are cutting, I couldn't warrant a [higher price for another brand], these were £20 and well worth it".
"The curved cuticle scissors are amazing! So small, fine and precise. I would never go back to a normal nipper! ☺️"
"As a fairly new nail tech im always looking for the best tools to improve my work. Well yesterday my cuticle [tools] just arrived from Katie Barnes and I'm so impressed by them. The precision is insane and the value for money is great. I just really wanted to share that with you all because I think this will be a game changer for me now and speed up my prep work!"
"So easy. Also a lot easier to see what you're nipping and better to hold as you dont have to grip it".
"Katie's cuticle scissors are a game changer. 35 yrs of using nippers - I can't believe how fabulously precise they are by comparison. never Again!"
"I literally just received mine today also and can vouch, these are an absolute dream to work with 😍 no more cuticle nippers, scissors all the way 🙌🏻"
