Details

Use For pushing back and shaping cuticles and for cleaning fingernails. Use the oval cuticle pusher to maintain the half-moon curve on each nail. Use the two points on the three-sided nail cleaner to clean your fingernails: the point on the long side provides an easy way of cleaning the edges of your nails, while the point on the short side is for cleaning the corners. Made of high-quality surgical steel, you can disinfect and sterilize the Rubis cuticle pusher without a problem. It will give you a lifetime of service. Material The cuticle pusher is manufactured out of premium-quality surgical steel. The material is acid-proof and rustproof. We deliberately avoid nickel or chrome plating our scissors to rule out any risk of allergic reactions. Even after many years, the Rubis cuticle pusher loses none of its original functionality thanks to its high-quality materials, design and workmanship. Manufacture Values are important to us. In our products and in the methods we use to produce them. We have been manufacturing in Switzerland for over 60 years. With experienced and skilled employees, many of whom have remained true to our company for years. Very much in the tradition of Swiss precision mechanics, we manufacture precise and elegant products, every detail of which is made to last. All of our manicure implements are made by hand - and, in a final step, tested individually under a magnifying glass. Only products that pass this test receive the “Rubis. Made in Switzerland” seal of quality. Design For us, design isn’t just a matter of form. It is our promise that we do everything possible so that our products retain their convincing shape and perfect function for many years to come. And since it hasn’t gone unnoticed that we take this promise seriously, our tweezers and scissors have been honored internationally with numerous renowned awards for their outstanding design. Simple, bold forms are a feature of all Rubis products – embodying the concept of “less is more”. The Rubis cuticle pusher was designed by Fides Baldesberger.

Tips & Tricks

Tips for perfect finger nails

Softening
Soft skin is easier to care for. If you don’t like using a nail bath to soak your nails and don’t have any manicure lotion to hand, the best time to manicure your nails is right after showering.

Brushing
Brushing helps clean dirty finger nails. But not only that. It also improves blood flow and encourages healthy nail growth. So it’s a good idea to brush your nails now and then. Incidentally, brittle nails are often a consequence of poor diet. If your diet is healthy, your finger nails will be healthy too.

Exfoliating
Soft skin feels nice, and this goes for your hands too. Use an exfoliating scrub or a body brush once a week to soften your hands. It really helps.

Pushing
Cutting is not necessarily best for your cuticles – pushing is better. Only the little pieces of skin that stick out and could cause the cuticle to tear should be cut – don’t forget to use specially designed cuticle scissors. One of the implements you could use to push your cuticles is our special cuticle pusher. And use a little nail oil from time to time – your cuticles will appreciate it.

Clipping
Nail clippers are primarily intended for toe nails. However, when in doubt, we would advise you to use our special nail scissors to trim your toe nails. They are more precise and gentler on the nails. We would not recommend using clippers on your finger nails, which are more sensitive. Finger nails respond better to gentler treatment with specially curved nail scissors and glass nail files.

Filing
Filing is the best thing for your finger nails. And the best nail files are glass files. Using them ensures that the sensitive nail does not become damaged. Glass nail files are gentle enough to avoid any risk of splitting. You should file your nails from the outside toward the middle.

Maintaining
Nails grow. About two to three millimeters a month. Remember to trim your nails before they become too long.

Moisturizing
Dry air dries out cuticles too. So don’t forget your cuticles when applying hand cream. The best creams to use are those that are unscented and do not irritate your skin. If you like the natural approach, you could use a rich oil like olive, almond or jojoba instead. Simply apply a little oil and massage gently into the nail, including the nail bed. The best time to moisturize is just before going to bed – the oil can then soak in overnight.

Massaging
When applying hand cream, why not give your hands a mini-massage as well? Just rub your hands together as if you were giving them a really good wash. Then work the fingers and thumb of your other hand up and down each finger individually. And give your hands a good shake-down at the end.

Relaxing
Between the thumb and index finger are helpful acupressure points. Simply apply a little more pressure there while massaging your hands and you’ll soon see how good it feels
