Frequently Asked Questions

What is an English Anvil nail splitter?

An English Anvil nail splitter is an instrument used for removing nails that have become infected or damaged by trauma. The English Anvil nail splitter can also help remove dead skin cells around your fingernails and toenails. An English Anvil nail splitter has two parts: one with a sharp point on it called the “splitting head” and another piece attached to this which contains springs. When you push down on the splitting head, the springs in the other end will release allowing the pointed tip to penetrate into the nail bed. This releases the nail so that it may be pulled out easily.

How do I use an English Anvil nail splitter?

You need to clean your hands before using any kind of tool like a nail splitter. You must wash them thoroughly with soap and water. After washing, dry your hands well. Then apply some petroleum jelly over your fingertips. Now place your fingers onto the nail splitter. Press firmly but gently until the nail splits open. Once done, pull off the nail carefully. If there is still pain when pulling off the nail, then repeat the process again.

What is an English Anvil nail splitter used for?

The most common reason why people buy nail splitters is that they want to get rid of their ingrown toenails. Ingrown toenails occur when the side edges of the toe grow inward instead of outward as intended. The result is painful inflammation and swelling at the base of the toes. To treat these conditions, doctors usually recommend cutting away part of the nail to allow more room for growth. However, if the cut isn’t made properly, the wound could reopen and cause infection. In such cases, a nail splitter comes handy.

Is a nail splitter safe? Is it effective?

It’s true that a nail splitter is not 100% safe. There are risks involved in its usage. For instance, if you accidentally cut yourself with the pointed end of the nail splitter, you might experience bleeding under the nail. Also, if the nail splitter slips out of your hand, it might injure someone else.
However, generally, the benefits outweigh the risks. A nail splitter helps prevent infections caused by improper cuts. Moreover, it allows us to avoid having to go through surgery. So yes, a nail splitter is very useful!

What is a split nail?

Split nails are caused by damage to the nail plate itself. They’re very similar to broken nails except that they don’t involve the actual breaking of the nail. Instead, they form cracks within the nail plate. These cracks eventually lead to separation from the nail matrix. As a result, the nail becomes weak and brittle. Split nails are generally found on the tips of the finger and toenails.

Why does my nail break?

Nail breaks happen due to various reasons. Some causes include excessive pressure applied to the nail during activities such as running, walking, playing sports, etc., wearing tight shoes, improper trimming of the nail, exposure to chemicals, poor diet, smoking, diabetes, psoriasis, fungal infections, hormonal changes, vitamin deficiencies, stress, injury, arthritis, cancer, systemic diseases, genetic disorders, medications, pregnancy, childbirth, aging, and many others.

Can I prevent nail breaks?

Yes! By following certain precautions, you can reduce the chances of getting nail breaks. Here are few things you can try:
1. Wear comfortable footwear – Wearing uncomfortable shoes increases the risk of developing foot problems including bunions, hammertoes, corns, calluses, blisters, and heel spurs. So make sure you wear proper fitting shoes.
2. Keep feet warm – Feet tend to lose heat faster than other body parts.
