新指甲钳 / New nail clippers


Background design
Nail clippers are something indispensable in our daily life when we are going to modify our nails. However, while using ordinary nail clippers, many people can be annoyed by the inconvenience brought by the inconsiderable design of blades, because users find the blades are too straight to fit and clip nails and toenails, especially for people with ingrowing nails.
Design note
We change the straight blades into crescent shape. Moreover, the bottom blade becomes lower in order to fit the nail, also more convenient for people who have ingrowing nails.
