Nails that are used in our daily lives are too sharp to balance. Therefore, it is common for people to stub their fingers when using the nail because it keeps moving when placed onto the surface.

The cushion nail solves this problem because the nail does not wobble and stays in place, which means that the thumb will not be in danger anymore.The nail will stay still in a vertical manner and go into the surface uncurled and straight. This also allows the nails to be placed an equal interspaces allowing for easier nailing of several nails.
