How to remove nail cuticles without hurting yourself
There are a few ways to remove nail cuticles without hurting yourself.
One way is to use a cuticle pusher. Cuticle pushers are small, plastic devices that you squeeze to push the cuticle away from the nail. You can buy cuticle pushers at most drugstores.

How to remove nail cuticles quickly and easily
I’ve compiled a few techniques to get your cuticles out in the easiest way possible. All of these methods are effective, but some are easier than others.
1. Use a pumice stone
This is my personal favorite method because it’s fast, easy, and doesn’t require any special tools. All you need is a pumice stone and some water.
1. Wet your pumice stone.
- Apply pressure to your nail with your fingers, and use the pumice stone to smooth away the skin.
- Repeat until all the cuticles are gone.
2. Use an emery board
If you don’t have a pumice stone, you can also use an emery board. This is a slightly more complex method, but it’s also faster and easier than using a knife.
1. Wet your emery board.
- Apply pressure to your nail with your fingers, and use the emery board to smooth away the skin.
- Repeat until all the cuticles are gone.
3. Use a knife
If you’d rather use a knife, that’s perfectly fine. Just make sure you use a sharp one so you don’t end up hurting yourself.
1. Cut the cuticle off at the nail’s edge.
How to remove nail cuticles at home
Nail cuticles are tough, yellow and horny pads that cover the tips of your nails. They can get in the way of your nails’ healthy growth and can cause pain when they’re clipped or peeled.
If you want to remove your nail cuticles at home, follow these steps:
1. Fill a bowl with warm water and add a teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide. Soak your nails for a few minutes, then scrub them with a mild soap.
2. Apply a layer of clipper oil to your nails. Clip your nails straight across, rather than using the horizontal cuticle edge as a guide.
3. Using a cotton ball, dab a light layer of OPI Nail Enamel Remover onto the clipped edge of each nail.
4. Apply a thin layer of acetone to a clean cotton ball. Gently wipe the acetone over the nails, removing the nail polish.
5. Rinse your nails with cool water, then dry them off. Apply a coat of clear nail polish, if desired.
How to remove nail cuticles without damaging your nails
Nail cuticles are a natural protective layer around your nails. They are made up of a tough layer of skin, surrounded by a softer layer of tissue.
The cuticle skin should be peeled away from the nail using a cuticle pusher or a nail file.
Once the skin has been pulled away from the nail, use a nail clipper to carefully trim away the excess skin.
If you have very soft nails, it may be difficult to remove the cuticle skin completely. In this case, you can use a cuticle pusher to push the skin back down over the nail and then file or clip it away.
