Who would have thought that Tweezerman do any products other than tweezers?! I certainly didn't realise until fairly recently, when I was lucky enough to become a Tweezerman ambassador, and excited I was too! I was sent a huge selection of tools to try out, some so alien-looking that I couldn't even work out what they were for, so I figured the best way to try out my arsenal of shiny new tools was to give myself a festive manicure.
This time around, my nails needed a serious tidy-up as they'd been neglected for quite some time (I get lazy)! I gave them a quick trim using the Stainless Steel Nail Scissors (not the brow scissors, which I've photographed above!) and filed them into my usual short and stumpy shape using the Neon Filemate. After a generous helping of cuticle oil, I used the Pushy and Nail Cleaner to tidy up my cuticles. These tools are so sturdy and well-made - they are quite a weight and so are much easier to handle than flimsier tools. The Grip and Snip Spring Cuticle Nipper is quite a bizarre looking thing, but is a complete revelation to me! In the past I have tidied up my cuticles and pushed them back with an orange stick, only to be left with excess and not knowing what to do with it. That's where the cuticle nippers come in - what an amazing invention! The handle is spring loaded, making the nipping motion as easy as it could possibly be.
Given that December is the time for glitzy nails (the gaudier the better), I decided to go for Rimmel's Precious Stones Nail Polish in Ruby Red. Glitters are great as you don't have to worry so much about smudging the finish, and as they are a bugger to remove, they tend to chip much less than usual polishes! This ruby red is a particular favourite of mine, as the polish is completely packed with glitter and requires just two coats to get maximum coverage.
