Convenient but not for me
The Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner & Pusher is great to use on both toes and nails.
I found that it took me a while to get the hang of it compared to other cleaners and Pushers i had used in the past, but once i started to use it , I got the hang of it. I did like the crystal composition of the product, however i just didn't really like using it.
I understood its use but found it very cumbersome to use and personally was not for me.
However, i can certainly recommend for Home Salons and professionals who have clients with either long nails, acrylic or gels, this would be a good tool for both professionals and household users to use.
It feels like you are having a salon at home and would definitely recommend for those that have home salons or professionals!
a bit cumbersome for me but stubby fingers! For others they may like how it fits in the hand.

Easy to use at home!
The Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner & Pusher is a great way to maintain your nails yourself at home. I'm really big on doing what I can at home to keep my nails healthy and avoid salons as much as possible. I also prefer to keep them as natural as possible. This product makes it possible to clean and maintain my nails at home which I love.
Just be careful as it is sharp but I also think it's better it's effective than blunt!
They're also a great size to keep in your handbag or travel bag. Then when needed you can use it on the go or whilst traveling.
I also like that it's 2-in-1 I think when you have too many things you often lose them whereas this is compact and easy to keep in a makeup bag.
In terms of quality the product is all metal and feels strong and durable. I think it will last well which I think is really important these days. I don't want to buy something that breaks after a couple of uses.
I would recommend this to friends.

The 2-in1 I didn't no I needed!
There is nothing more satisfying than cleaning the underside of your nails and this product is just what I needed to easily achieve such things. I've always been an avid cuticle pusher but have neglected to purchase a nail cleaner so this 2-in-1 is the best of both worlds and perfect for me.
I used this product after removing my old nail polish, buffing my nails and applying cuticle oil to soften the nail bed. The product is extremely straightforward to use and easily decreased the size of my cuticles enabling a more even curve to the bottom of my nail which allows for better nail polish application.
I highly recommend this product for anyone who does at home manicures - it is an absolute must have to achieving a salon quality manicure at home! I shall continue using this product moving forward and will be recommending it to my friends and family.

Luxurious cuticle cleaner and pusher
I was so ecstatic to find out I had been included in the Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner and Pusher trial team. I have been eyeing tools like these for quite a while to up my DIY manicure game. The maniPRO did not disappoint!
The maniPRO come in a little velvet sleeve to keep it safe and to add a touch of luxe. The tool itself is made from 100% European crystal making it look very luxurious but it is a very handy little tool despite its pretty looks. I found the slanted end great to push back my cuticles and the pointed end handled any stubborn cuticles with ease.
The tool itself is easy to hold and grip when using the tool. It feels very well made and strong as well so it probably would survive an accidental drop. Overall, I definitely recommend this tool and look forward to using it again for my next DIY manicure.

Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner & Pusher trial team review
The Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner & Pusher is the best cuticle pusher I have ever used. The cuticle pusher end gently and effectively pushes down my cuticles, which is very helpful when doing a gel polish manicure or just tidying up my cuticles to make my nails look neater. I just have to make sure I use the cuticle pusher at the correct angle so there is no risk of causing damage to the nail.
The cleaner end is useful for tidying up my nails too. Though I kind of wish it was a bit thinner and came to more of a point at the tip to make it a bit more precise, but then it would be sharper too which could be a problem.
The handle grip makes the nail tool easy to hold, but it does not feel uncomfortably rough (the grip on the first cuticle pusher I bought myself feels quite rough in comparison).
I will be adding the Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner & Pusher to my at home manicure and pedicure routine.

This stylish little tool in its neat pouch looked promising. It didn’t seem too different from others on the market. The cuticle pusher was a great shape and easily did the job, even in my non-dominant hand.
The pointy end was a different story. While it was useful for cleaning under nails, it’s sharpness was off putting. Perhaps I’m clumsier than some. I found it very sharp and did not trust myself with it, especially in the non-dominant hand. I was really scared of doing myself an injury if I slipped. Others may be more skilled and confident than I.
That being said it was easier to use on the feet where the nails and cuticles as firmer so I was less afraid. For that I’m grateful as I don’t like salon pedicures having caught a bug on the toenails once.
I would’ve preferred more instructions on use with pics. Also I think after a while the lovely velvety pouch would probably come apart at one end from the pointy bit through wear and tear of just having it in a hand bag.
This product is good for those that are confident in handling it and want to maintain their gel nails between visits.

Gentle and effective nail tool for a professional nail finish
The Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner and Pusher comes packaged in a small black protective pouch. The tool itself is double ended – there is a blunt rounded end which is designed to be used to push back cuticles, and there is a pointed curved blade which can be used to clean under and around the nail bed. The tool is made with 100% Japanese stainless steel which is great because it will ensure the tool remains sharp and it’s nice to know that the tool is good quality and will go the distance.
Before using the cuticle pusher, I make sure to wash my hands and soak my cuticles in warm water for a few minutes to help them soften. The cuticle pusher is shaped perfectly to gently push back my cuticles without damaging the surface of my nail. The cuticle pusher was effective and served its purpose. I was pleasantly surprised with how easy and gentle the whole process was.
I used the pointed curve blade (the cleaner end) to carefully get underneath the nail bed to remove any hidden dirt underneath the nail. The tool is sharp enough so that it is effective at cleaning under and around the nail. It is a gentle tool and does not hurt or scratch the nail area.
I was very happy using the Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner and Pusher tool. It is easy and effective to use and it helps me achieve a professional looking manicure finish without having to go to a nail salon. I also find the tool very satisfying to use – it’s great to use once a week to freshen up your manicure and it can be used for cleaning up gel nail polish. The tool is easy to clean. After each use, I simply rinse the tool in warm water and allow it to air dry before placing it back in its protective pouch. I will continue using the 2-in-1 cleaner and pusher tool when giving myself an at home manicure and to keep my nails looking fresh in between salon visits.
Soften cuticles in warm water for a few minutes before using the cuticle pusher end of the tool
Those wanting to give themselves an at home manicure with professional finish results, or to freshen up a manicure in between visits to the salon. A great self care tool.

Nifty little tool
I was fortunate enough to be included in the trial team for the Manicare maniPRO 2 in 1 cleaner and pusher. This stainless steel tool comes in a cute little velvety pouch making it feel quite luxe. One end has a cuticle pusher and the other is a kind of scalpel sharp end that is supposed to be for cleaning. There is a sharp blade to this tip so take care when handling this!
I felt the cuticle pusher was too thick and wide to use to push back my cuticles... except for perhaps my big toe nails but I felt even then, it was too thick so really didn't use it. I did however, the sharp end which is thin and helped to clean under my nails as well as neaten the edges of my cuticles that didn't have enough skin to push with the pusher. So I quite liked that! My cuticles and nails are looking tidy and feeling clean.
Soak fingers in warm water to help soften before using tool and finish with cuticle oil.

Maintain a great manicure/pedicure
I was lucky enough to get to use Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner & Pusher. I am one to always neglect my toenails, so I decided to give this product a go! Over the past 3 weeks as it’s been summer and I’ve pretty much been wearing straps sandals every weekend, so I had my natural nails one week and polish the next 2 with a change of colour each week! I have used this cleaner and pusher every week! One end of the maniPRO has a cuticle pusher and the opposite end has a sharp curved blade to clean up under the nail or cuticle or to clean up polish colour that goes leaks over the cuticle or under the nail. It has a good rough handle in the middle that allows you to have a good grip and not slip as you’re using it. The cuticle pusher end is quite sharp and cleans the cuticle from the nail really well., while the curved end is very foot for clearing away any excess cuticle. I am definitely going to keep using this product!
Keep it clean after every use by rinsing under the tap and let it air dry.

Slick piece of steel
This beautiful little tool is well designed and comes packed in a little velvet sleeve - which only makes it more appealing.
The blunt end is for pushing the cuticles and it does that job effortlessly without damaging the nail surface. Textured middle part provides good grip and saves you from accidental slips. The other sharp end is for cleaning around the nail bed - use this with caution though as it’s quite sharp. I wish the pointy end was less knife like and came slightly curved to actually get under the side nail corners. It still is pretty good for shaping cuticles but I’m pretty scared of letting it go in corner even after 3 weeks of using it - but may be that’s just me and others might find the sharpness just right.
It’s easy to clean and care for which is a big plus point in my books.
Use the sharp end with great caution.

Great for when you need a bit of extra help
Manicare's maniPRO 2-in-1 cleaner & pusher is made with 100% Japanese stainless steel and certainly looks sturdy enough to do a professional job. It does say that it is more suited if you have gel polishes. I don’t have gel polishes but I found that the tool does a good mani and pedi on my ‘naked’ nails.
The blunt end is effective in pushing back cuticle. It may look blunt but the end can also be quite sharp. If you use it incorrectly with a scraping motion instead of a pushing motion, you can end up scraping the nail bed. Having said that, if you do have nail ridges, the blunt end easily files the ridges away using gentle, one directional strokes, giving a lovely smooth result.
My favourite feature in this tool has to be the pointed curve blade - it does an amazing job cleaning under the nail bed and making the nails look cleaner.
Soak nails in warm water first to soften cuticles.
Nails with gel polishes but works equally well on normal nails.

No mess no fuss!
First of all I’d like to say thank you to beautyheaven for inviting me to trial the maniPro 2-in-1 cleaner and pusher from Manicare.
My cuticles have not been in the best of shape lately due to being time poor so when I received this in the mail I was excited as it was giving me the push I needed to get back on track with my maintenance.
The tool is double ended and comes in a gorgeous little black pouch which is a great idea as one end is sharp so will need to be kept hidden away from children.
After soaking my cuticles in warm water to soften them, I used the blunt end first and found that it easily pushed back my cuticles without having to apply to much pressure and therefore not damaging the nail surface.
Following that I then tried the sharper end to clean around my nail beds to tidy things up.
The maniPro 2-in-1 cleaner and pusher is such great quality and I wasn’t surprised to find out that it’s made from 100% Japanese Stainless Steel which will ensure long lasting sharpness.
Thank you once again beautyheaven for the opportunity to trial this amazing tool and once released I will be definitely recommending to family and friends.
Always wash hands and soften cuticles before use.
Enjoy some pamper time you deserve it!
Anyone who wants to maintain their cuticles and nails and anyone who has gel polishes that need cleaning up.

Thankfully I got to trial this product
It is amazing...
As i amm obsessed with keeping my cuticles tidy...this product is ssssoooo good.
I has two sides..one sharp and the other bluntish
Its steel and small and handy and love the little pouch
The sharp side I used for trimming my cuticles....
I also used this for my toenails and worked a treat as the tiny blade has a wonderful sharp edge..
Just be sure of where you are trimming...
The other side is a blunting curved side which is great for scraping dead skin off naked and pushing cuticles back..
Great steel look and handy pouch makes it so simple to pack ..
I have used this on my feet also and have had amazing results...
I would use this again and definitely repurchase if I lost or broke it somehow...
Love this product and so happy that I have this as I have always checked them out at the nail artists kits...
Use wet or dry and easy to clean

Love this product
I was so excited to be part of this trial as I am a DIY person when it comes to looking after my hands and feet. I don't like to sit at saloons to get my nails done. I have been using different tools but nothing like this before the best part is its a 2 in 1 tool, so it means you have less tools to keep but have the option of using both the functions of cleaner and pusher. It is made of good quality steel the blade is really sharp to caution is required using it if you are new to it.
I like the fact that a little luxurious pouch is provide to store it. Its important that you clean the tool and dry it before storing it away. The only thing I would have liked is clear detailed instructions with the packaging especially for those who are new to DIY.
The tool is easy to use and does a good job with out hurting your skin and without requiring too much effort to push your cuticles. I would totally be recommending this tool.

Brings your nail game up to speed!
Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner & Pusher gives me a salon finish at home on self-care Sundays and saves me $$. The tool is made from 100% Japanese stainless steel with a non-slip patterned grip. It is double sided: the nail shaped end is for pushing back cuticles and the knife shaped end removes stubborn areas.
What I most loved about this tool is that it removes the annoying residue edging that can be left when you remove your polish and it does it so EASILY! The shape fits my nails perfectly too. I find nail polish remover to be drying, so the less I use and the quicker I get it done the better. I wish I had maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner & Pusher years ago.
It can be quickly cleaned with soap and water after use then I place it on a towel so the water pulls away from the tool.
Get one, you really need it! :)

I was sent a Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cleaner and Pusher to trial. For those people that like to do their own nails regularly, this tool has been heaven sent for you.
I’m hopeless at doing my nails regularly at home, I struggle to obtain the same professional results at home that I would receive in a salon. In saying that, I found that the cleaner and pusher was so simple, painless and an absolute breeze to use. I preferred to use the device after showing in the evening, while my skin was subtle and soft. The device is approximately 10cm long, so it would be easy to carry in your handbag. It is made from 100% Japanese stainless steel, which ensures it is unbreakable and that it will last a lifetime. It has a double end, one with a blunt and curved end, that conforms to the natural nail to ensure it pushes back the cuticles without damaging the nail and the other end, a curved blade to clean under and around the nail bed. It has a non-slip grip, so if you are working with wet or moisturised hands, it won’t slip. My nails look healthy and beautiful.

Again I was really excited to have been chosen to be on this trial team for the Manicare manipro two in one cleaner and pusher! I was looking forward to getting to give it a try and I wasn't dissapointed. The Manicure products seem to be of really good sturdy quality. I don't see myself being able to break it . The Manicare manipro twining one cleaner and pusher is a sleek design so easy to grip and handle. So an easy to use product. Made of easy to clean materials. Good for maintaining hygiene which is so important. It comes in a little slip pouch so you can just pop it in your handbag or purse. It is sharp and unfortunately I did manage to give myself a little slice but that was user error I would definitely purchase again and also reccomend to family and friends.

Just what I needed
The condition of my nails has been abysmal in recent weeks. I haven’t painted them since March and have been moving house dipping them in and out of paint, using them to rip open boxes. The end result? Dry and cracked cuticles and torn and broken nails. An all round mess.
So, getting the opportunity to trail the Manicare 2~in~1 cleaner and pusher I jumped at the chance.
The tool is pretty luxurious for what it is. It comes in a little black velvet pouch for the pen sized tool. Made from Japanese steel, with an easy to grip handle, the pusher sits perfectly in the hand.
It is double ended. One side is what you would describe as you standard pusher/scrapper, curved to fit your nail. The other is more like a little a cutter with a small angled blade that made short work of the those crusty cuticles I mentioned. Although I would caution that it is quiet sharp so keep it away from the little ones, and if you’re clumsy like me, maybe use with supervision.
I used this as part of a standard manicure but think it. would be great for cleaning up polish, but again with caution because it is sharp.
The instructions also say to rinse after use and air dry and given how germ aware we’ve become I think it’s good to mention.
Overall really easy to use but a massive upgrade compared to the orange sticks I grew up using.

sturdy and sharp
I absolutely loved trialing this product. Previously I had used cleaners and pushers as seperate tools, so I loved the 2 in 1! the tool is entirely made of metal, and has a nicely textured area to grip on, and a really handy little storage bag. Super important that you use the storage pouch though because this tool is SHARP!! The sharpness though is great, means that its super easy to use, doesnt require any extra pressure or manuvering to use, works first time every time, and it does a really neat job. The 'manicare' logo is positioned in a really nice place too, not sure why but I just liked it. after using the manipro 2 in 1 cleaner an pusher, I am absolutely in love. I will never use any other brand, its absolutely brilliant, and has become a staple item in my nail bag. 100% reccomend this to anybody who looks after their nails well! Also found it as the perfect tool for helping to clean out under your nails after gardening or other messy activitys
keep it stored in the provided pouch, as this tool is really sharp!!
absolutely everybody! This product should be in everybodys makeup and body care bags

Handy nail tool
I tried my new Manicare mani PRO 2in 1 cleaner and pusher and felt I had finally found a product that works for me, I love the sharp edges of the cleaner and pusher it’s fantastic!
It comes in a lovely little pouch that is so easy to store away, it’s got a great length and is easy to hold and use in one hand and isn’t slippery when using it fits snug in my hands, and works well.
It’s made out of a strong metal that doesn’t bend or move out of shape, and is super easy to clean in some warm soapy water. I would definitely recommend this product and can’t wait to use it again.
It’s great when you want to treat your nails at home or when away travelling and won’t take up any extra room at all. You can use this on any nails meaning your hands or toes.
Clean your hands in warm water it makes it easier.
