Hey everyone! Remember that I promised you a giveaway? We have had several opportunities to review some great new Christmas products and one of our favorites is Manscaped's four-piece luxury nail kit affectionately called The Shears 2.0.
Nail clippers are always difficult to find at my house, so it was easy to find someone willing to help me with this review. I must confess that even though these are marketed to men, I was excited to try them. Over the years, I have had many nail kits and I have never found one with a decent pair of scissors, but these are terrific!
I asked Curly to be my hand model and after a pic or two, he was way more interested in getting his fingernails all cleaned up than he was with helping me with the review. How many 12-year-old boys do you know that like clipping their nails??
After using the scissors on a couple of nails, we pulled out the actual clippers. They were a little confusing at first; they do not open at all like traditional clippers, but after we figured it out, it was easy. The clippers do a great job on fingernails, but I'm not sure how they would handle toenails. They are not marketed that way, so we didn't try it. The blades are smaller, more like traditional fingernail clippers.
I didn't even have to ask Curly to pull out the nail file. He was anxious to clean up everything and he used the pointed tip to strip the last of the dirt from under the edges of his nails. He didn't have any use for the tweezers, but we did talk about what he might be able to do with them (good teaching moment...) and then he carefully placed them all back in the sweet little container before calmly taking them up to his room.
"Wait!" I called after him. "Those were supposed to be a Christmas gift!" He stopped halfway up the stairs.
"Oh." Then a minute later. "Do you want them back?"
I could hear the disappointment in his voice and I thought about all the times I tried to get my older boys to take care of their nails. "No..." I tried to keep the smile out of my voice. "I guess you can have them."
SCORE!! Another win for the parents!
