Which nail care tool is better?

Recently we decided to test our nail care tools. Do not worry we won’t break them again, we already did that.

Curiosity led us to the question what is faster? Which tool is does it job best? To shorten your nails with scissors, nail clippers or glass nail file?

Let’s the race begin. Welcome the honorable participants of the race.

nail_care_tools

It took our tester 30 seconds to cut his nail with nail clippers, but he had to use glass nail files to smoothen the edges.

When it our test pilot used pair of scissors, it practically took him just a few seconds, 27 to be precise to cut his nail, but again he had to use a glass nail file to smoothen nail edges.

You all have seen the cartoon “Turbo” about the snail dreaming of F1 races? Well when tester used a glass nail file to shorten the nail it felt like time stood still. It took him 1 min and 39 seconds to get the job done. BUT! There were no need to use any other extra tools to smooth the edges.

Based on the final results we proclaim three winners! Because all of the tools ended up doing their job perfectly.

Do you have other test ideas for us to try?

Baby nails

The most precious and loved person in the world would be a child. All young parents face situation when they actually do not know how to shorten their child’s nails.

Well, frustration and confusion are quite reasonable feelings at this point, can you imagine tiny tine baby hands and even smaller nails.

Most of the parents are terrified even of thought cutting their baby’s nails or even worse hurting them.  But you have to shorten baby’s nails because they have little control over their hands and could scratch themselves.

Some of parents do the nail-trimming task with a partner: one holding the baby preventing baby form squirming and the other person is trimming the nails.  In any case, before starting to trim make sure, you and your baby in a comfortable position and nothing is distracting.

As for tools, nursery advisers, baby shops offer bunch of safe and cute nail trimming goodies:

Baby nail scissors; have rounded tips for safety
