Salon product at home
The Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher & File is great to use on both toes and nails. As the tool is quite sharp on both ends i found that using it on my toes before a polish was a great use.
I found that it took me a while to get the hang of it compared to other cuticle pusher i had used in the past, but once i started to use it , i was then wanting to do everyone's nails in our house!
If you have either long nails, acrylic or gels, this would be a good tool for both professionals and household users to use. I did notice that my beautician had a similar one that she uses religiously so i would definitely recommend that she gets this one!
It feels like you are having a salon at home and would definitely recommend for those that have home salons or professionals!
it can take a while to get the hang of it if not use to it, so give it time and start on your toes first for practice.

Great way to maintain nails at home!
The Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher & File is a great way to maintain your nails yourself. I'm massive 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 shape and maintain my nails at home which I love.
They're also a great size to keep in your hand bag 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 make up bag.
In terms of quality, the product has a little weight to it which gives it a feeling of higher quality and luxury.
I would recommend this to friends.

The product I've been missing!
This gorgeous crystal 2-in-1 cuticle pusher & file comes in a handy sleeve which I have been using to keep it clean and fresh between uses. Although the product looks delicate it is actually really sturdy and I never worried about breaking it. In saying this is was easy and gentle to use on my nails and especially the delicate cuticle area.
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!

Such a useful little tool
I was lucky enough to be a part of the Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Pusher and File Trial Team and what an awesome product! It comes at such a great time too as I was looking to purchase a tool similar to this to assist in preparing my nails for polish and at home, DIY manicures.
The pusher itself comes in a luxurious feeling velvet pouch which is so handy to keep the tool in great condition and safe. The tool is made from 100% Japanese stainless steel and feels heavy in your hand which makes it feel very high quality. The pusher end is curved to match the contours on your nail bed perfectly which makes it very easy to use. It pushed back my cuticles and scraped away of some of the dead cuticle quickly and easily. The other end of the tool looks a bit like a small knife - I used this end to remove more stubborn dead cuticle from my nails. I found it worked well and was sharp and straightforward to use.
Overall, I highly recommend this tool and would definitely repurchase if I lost it. The tool is very well made and will last many years.

Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher & File trial team review
The Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher & File is a useful manicure and pedicure tool, I have never used a nail tool quite like it. It is made of crystal and has two ends. One of the ends is slanted to gently push down the cuticle without damaging the nail (which it does well) and the sides of that end are also a file to gently remove dry skin. The other end is a round pointed file which is really good at gently filing away hard to get dry skin around the nail.
So far I have used the pointed end mainly on my toenails, because my cuticles on my big toes are the driest and most annoying. The unique shape of the file easily and gently files down the dry skin. The slanted end I have used on both my fingernails and toenails.
I will definitely be adding the Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher & File to my at home manicure and pedicure routine.

The product I didn’t know I couldn’t live without
I’m not big on nail care as I’m blessed with good strong nails that I find having polish on weakens. So it’s been a while since I’ve been to a salon. It’s seems so pointless to pay for a manicure with no polish. Now I can have the joy of manicured hands without the price tag. The product looks stylish being glass and in a lovely pouch and is super easy to use. I think I could use it in public and may be others would think it’s a fancy pen even if on the short side. I especially loved the gentle way I was able to push back cuticles, even tried it without soaking first and it worked a treat, it seems pretty sturdy too and didn’t feel it would break easily but I wasn’t going to test dropping the lovely tool.
Also, since it’s not metal I could probably place it in carry-on luggage once travel is on the cards again.
This product is really good enough for my needs and by cuticles especially love it.

Gentle cuticle pusher and file perfect for at home use
The Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher and File comes packaged in a protective pouch. The tool itself is double ended – there is a slanted end which is designed to gently push back cuticles and there is a pointed end which can be used to gently file hard to get dry skin around the nail area. The tool is made with 100% European crystal which is great because it will ensure the tool remains sharp and it’s nice to know that the tool is good quality and gentle to use on my nails, particularly when they are a little weaker after shellac manicures.
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 slanted end of the cuticle pusher is shaped perfectly to gently push back my cuticles without damaging the surface of my nail. The slanted edge has a surface area that allows you to easily get into the edges of the nail and push back the cuticle effectively. I was pleasantly surprised with how easy and gentle the whole process was.
I used the pointed end of the tool to gently file any dry skin around my nails. The pointed edge of the tool allows me to do this with precision, which is great because I really want to make sure I am filing only the areas of the nail that I need to. Crystal nail files in my opinion are superior because they are gentle on nails and help to create a smooth, professional finish. I have had trouble with other nail files in the past which have worsened the condition of my nails. After using the file end of the tool over a couple of weeks, my nails look and feel strong – it has not cause them to peel or damage.
I was very happy using the Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher and File. It is gentle and effective to use and it helps me achieve a professional looking manicure finish without having to go to a nail salon. The tool is great for quick fixes in between salon visits, to freshen up your manicure and it is perfect for those with weak or brittle nails. It’s also really convenient that the cuticle pusher can be used on both wet and dry nails because it is made of crystal. 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 pusher and file tool when giving myself an at home manicure and to keep my nails looking fresh in between salon visits.
Before using the cuticle pusher, soften nails in warm water for a few minutes before use.
Those with weak or brittle nails who want to gently push back their cuticles and file the nail area. The tool is perfect for at home use or between salon visits.

Fancy cuticle stick
I was fortunate enough to be included in this beautyheaven trial team. I've been quite slack with my weekly manicures during this past... 2020... but I know that having a fresh mani keeps me feeling on top so I've endeavoured to continue this. I used to regularly use a cuticle stick in my manicure/ pedicures routine but think i went overboard and ended up doing more damage...
But with restraint, this nifty little crystal cuticle is quite handy. I love the velvet pouch it comes in and the weighty feel of the pusher. Feels super luxe and looks great in my nail kit! I particularly love the pointy end as it helps with total precision. I only used this a few times as I only received it about 3 weeks ago but I can see this being a helpful little tool when I do my manis to help keep my cuticles looking healthy and tidy.
Make sure to soak fingers first to soften skin and follow with cuticle oil.

Professional natural nails
I was lucky enough to trial this Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher & File and my nails have been looking so good! The stick looks like it’s made of glass. It’s smooth in the middle and course at each end. One end has flat point where I have used to brush over the whole nail. You’ll be surprised how much of your cuticle grows over the nail when you fist use it! The opposite end has a point which I found perfect for filing the cuticle. Over the past 3 weeks using the cuticle file my nails have grown so quickly! They look really healthy! I am a phlebotamist by day job and I am forever washing my hands and my nails are usually very brittle, but with a bit of TLC and this file, they are very shiny and strong!
From the fist time using Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher & File, you will need a piece of paper towel to catch the filings from your nails. After each use, I cleaned it with sanitizer spray.
Easy to use on the run. If you are hard on your hands, it’s really good to file the sharp bit when you break a nail!

Beautiful but not essential
With COVID lock down a lot of us had time and reasons to indulge in more at home self care so this trial couldn’t have come at better time. A bit of me time shaping and cleaning nails really feels like good therapy.
This tool looks like a slim neat glass stick with shaped and frosted ends. It comes in a velvety case which makes storing easy and more chic. Every detail looks beautiful and I don’t think I had seen any manicure tool like this before. Took me a while to understand how to use it but it was fun.
Now I mostly use the slanted end to push cuticles a little and then file the rough skin bits with the frosted side and pointy tips for hard to reach corners.
While it’s fun to use this tool and it makes some frustrating aspects easier, it’s not quite something that you can’t do without. One of the good to have but not essential. Also the frosted bit seems to be getting blunt much faster than I had expected.
Just to clarify if you’re still confused on my stand for this tool - I love using it but only because I have it, wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase it or recommend to a friend - unless he/she is super fussy about keeping their hands in shape to the T.
Looks gentle but it’s very effective so use with gentle pressure first.

Gentle and precise
Manicare's maniPRO2-in-1 cuticle pusher & file is made with 100% European crystal and make it a rather gorgeous looking tool. The crystals at both ends of the file immediately gave it a premium look and feel. It is easy to hold and manipulate around the nails.
This file works just effectively on either wet or dry nails but I did notice that when the nails have been soaked in warm water for a few minutes, it does make the job quicker and easier. Being a bit squeamish about cutting into the skin around my nails, I used the crystal cuticle pusher very gently to push the cuticle back into a tidy shape and was impressed to see that a gentle touch was all that was needed. The pointed end was great for filing away dry skin – I love how easy it was to move around the toes. Even when I accidentally filed onto skin, it didn’t hurt or bruise the skin. The mani and pedi I have had always involved cuticle cutting for a neat frame but I found that I could achieved a pretty neat outcome using this do-it-yourself-at-home tool. Another bonus I found was the pointed end side is also good for filing away nail ridges smoothly.
Soak hands and feet in warm water before using the tool.

This tool is cool!
First of all I would like to say thank you to beautyheaven for inviting me to try the maniPro 2 -in-1 Cuticle Pusher and File from Manicare. Unfortunately I have not been looking after my nails as much as I would like so this gave me the push I needed.
I loved that it came in a gorgeous black velvet pouch which is a great for keeping the tool clean and safe from damage.
I found it very easy to use but I do advise that instructions should be read before using this product.
I found it aesthetically pleasing to look at and was happy to read that it’s made from 100% European crystal which will ensure its long lasting sharpness without having to use any sharp blades.
I also liked that it was quite versatile in the fact that you can use it on both wet and dry skin.
I found the maniPro to be very good at pushing and filing my cuticles without the need for too much pressure.
Will definitely be recommending this product to family and friends when it’s released this coming March.
Thank you once again beautyheaven x
Always wash hands before use and a make sure to rinse the cuticle pusher and file after use. Store in the pouch provided once dry.
Anyone who wants well maintained cuticles.

I am so happy I got to trial this product..
Thank you BH
I am so obsessed with keeping my cuticles tidy that when I received this I was so excited as its so good looking...I am also obsessed with glass so this is right up my alley...
I used this to not only file the crooked bits of my nails but I love that you can gently scrape the cuticles and the see through cuticles bits that extend from the cuticles...
I do small to and from movements from one side to the other and it pushes them back whilst scraping away the dead skin..
This works on dry and wet nails and after I wash and apply hand creme on, I am so happy to see perfect cuticles...
So excited about this gorgeous looking product in its luxurious little velvet pouch...
I cant see needing to repurchase this product antime soon but would definitely do so if I had to...
So in love with this ...
I would recommend small movements to be gentle on the nails
Ideal for wet and dry

Quality Product for your hands and feet
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 think Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher & File is a great product and have not seen anything like this in the market especially something that is made of 100% European crystal. It looks delicate but its pretty sturdy.
I like the way it comes in a sleeve that helps to store it easily. I think I would have liked more instructions with the packaging, for someone who is new to using DIY tools they would be totally lost on how to use it.
I used it on clean washed hands after to push my cuticles, I felt this tool was gentle on my skin and did not leave me bruised. I felt the results were great and I was able to achieve the rounded cuticles for my nails. Would totally recommend this product.

Salon-quality experience at home!
The secret to a long lasting nail polish all begins with the preparation and Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 Cuticle Pusher & File is nothing short of brilliant. Made from 100% European crystal it certainly is the most glamorous looking cuticle tool but more importantly it works! It gently pushes back your cuticles without damaging your nails. It is a quick and easy to use and can be used on wet or dry nail surface but I only used it on dry because I wanted to paint my nails.
Really liked the 2 in 1 aspect of this tool as I was able to push my nails back with the slanted end and tidy up the stubborn areas with the pointed end. I can't maintain long nails because they break so by keeping my cuticles pushed back it makes my nails look longer which I love!
Nifty little cuticle tool and I would recommend this product.
Keep it in the pouch to prevent it from getting damaged
Anyone who does their nails :)

I have been trialling the Manicare maniPRO 2-in-1 cuticle pusher and file for several weeks. I have to confess that I’m not a diligent DYI home manicurist, but this tool was a breeze to use and my nails look professionally cared for. The device is made with 100% European crystal, which is known for long lasting sharpness without any sharp blades. It is a high-quality product, made to last. It is perfect for both natural and artificial nails beds and it can be used on both wet and dry skin.
I prefer to do my home manicure after I’ve showered, so my skin around my nails is soft and easy to work with. This dual-end file beautifully smooths the skin, effectively removing dead skin and neatly pushes back the cuticles, while the pointed end gently files hard-to-get dry skin around the nail with precision. It has a long central part, which makes it comfortable to hold. When I’m finished, I simply rinse it under warm water to remove nail residue and then store it in the small velvety pouch supplied. The simplicity of the tool has made me more aware of taking care of my hands and nails on a regular basis.

Im thrilled to have been chosen to be on this trial team. The Manicare mani-pro two in one cuticle pusher and file is definitely one of those must have products to have in your manicure kit. It is a really sturdy and good quality product. I really like the design of this product. It looks cool haha...strange thing to say about a manicure product, but it really does. Its made of glass! But despite that the product itself is easy to use, works well and easy to keep clean and sterile. I see it lasting a very long time as there aren't any wearable or breakable parts. Unless I drop it I guess. It comes with it's only little slip pouch so great to just chuck in the handbag. I would buy again if needed and will definitely reccomend to family and friends. Very happy with this one!!

Little bit of luxury
Between missing trips to the salon due to COVID closures and then moving house using my nails for all sorts of uncouth, and ghastly tasks that would have my manicurist in shock, I was in desperate need of a manicure. Enter Manicare, as if Santa had read my Christmas list.
The 2~in~1 cuticale pusher is that little bit of luxury. Arriving in its own little blue velvet sleeve the pusher and file is a double ended, lightweight pen size tool.
As I said, my claws were like some thing out of a Lord of the Rings book and this thing worked wonders. The clear handle and matte white tips, which are made from European crystal, known for lasting sharpeners, looked oddly elegant in my hands (at least until I had tamed the unruly talons).
I really like the fact that one end was your standard slanted shape white the other was point allowing me to really get into the corners where that awful dry skin in. I used this on dry hands and had great, fast and painless results but it can be used on wet if this is your preference.
Overall this is definitely something I will be reaching for each week.

looks premium, feels fragile
the shape, and texture of this tool are quite cool and different to anything I have used before. The glass like appearance has a very premium look and feel to it, but I found myself worrying about how I was storing or using the tool, almost felt like it would snap or shatter (thankfully this hasnt occured yet)
The file texture was pretty interesting, and im not entirelly sure that I liked the feel of it when using it, but it did a really good job. leaves your nails very smooth and with no jagged spots or edges, i found that it also did a pretty amazing job on my toes, which have alot of hardened skin arround the nails, the file helped me to get rid of some of the rougher and dryer areas of skin that a pusher alone wasnt enough to handle.
overall I enjoyed using the product, however left off the 5th star due to how fragile the took feels. I'd rather not have to think or worry about breaking or damaging my beauty tools in use, or worse damaging myself!
keep it stored in the protective pouch when not in use in a safe spot- if your kids get their hands on it, it looks like a pencil to them and can do some pretty serious damage to your benchtops if handled wrongly.

Good nail tool
I got my new Manicare mani PRO 2 in 1 cuticle pusher and file and couldn’t wait to try it out.
It looked like a fancy premium product that is made from 100% European crystal. It was really good quality and I could tell without using it due to its weight. It comes in a fancy little pouch and is really easy to store away and take anywhere with you, great for when going away.
I love the double ended use to this tool and it’s really easy and simple to use and doesn’t hurt your nails while getting the finest results due to the slanted edge.
The file was different being rounded and great to get to those hard areas, you can use this on both your hands and toes, it can be cleaned very easy with just warm soapt water and leave it to dry before putting it back in the little pouch.
