Why did you choose the brand of nippers that you bought, well known brand or it's sharp and durable ? By the way, which brand did you buy ?How many cuticle / nail nippers do you have at home ? How much do you pay for them ?
I have 3 at home, I buy the brand I do, because they are durable and long lasting and sharp enough to cut my thick nails. The brand I buy is called 'TRIM'.
