How short does the Lil Nipper clip my nails?
Your desired nail length is determined by how little or how much of your nail you insert into the nail-slot.
How do I know what model to buy for my child?
If you’re questioning between two models, we recommend getting the one for the smaller nails. Most people can still use the smaller sized nail-slot past the age designations.
Will I need to file my nails afterwards?
No. The nail clipper makes a smooth cut. Your nails will have a soft edge after trimming. Sometimes it can take a couple tries to get the feel of it, but once you do, you won’t go back.
Do these trimmers work for toenails?
It works great on toenails of infants and kids. Adults who can reach their toenail have found the trimmers quite effective if the nail is able to fit into the slot.
What happens to the nails?
Trimmed nails drop into a hidden compartment to be discarded later. No mess! Just slide the bottom tray to dispose.
I like to have short nails, will the clipper still work?
Yes! You have full control of how much nail is trimmed by how much nail is inserted into the nail-slot. For shorter nails, tip your finger allowing more nail into the slot.
Do these clip or grind the nail?
Neither! These Lil Nipper devices introduce an entirely NEW way to maintain your nail by using a surgical-grade stainless steel blade that precisely trims slivers of your nails. Feel confident that the safety plate protects any skin from contacting the blades so just your nails get trimmed. Always!
Is this clipper loud?
No. The device creates a low hum like other electronic devices but it’s not loud.
Are these nail clippers waterproof?
No! We do not recommend exposing the clipper to water.
How do you charge Lil Nipper devices?
Plug into any USB cord: computer, wall, car, airplane … you get the idea 😜
How do I clean my Lil Nipper?
Simply wipe down with a warm washcloth and gentle soap or alcohol wipe.
My device has a blinking light, why?
The blinking light is a low battery indicator. While charging, your Lil Nipper is fully charged when the blinking light stops.
