From Wikipedia;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eponychium#:~:text=In%20human%20anatomy%2C%20the%20eponychium,cuticle%20is%20dead%20skin%20cells.

“In human anatomy, the eponychium is the thickened layer of skin at the base of the fingernails and toenails. It can also be called the medial or proximal nail fold. The eponychium differs from the cuticle; the eponychium comprises live skin cells whilst the cuticle is dead skin cells.”

Cuticle is actually dried skin flakes from the underside of the proximal nail fold (eponychium), which stick to the nail as it grows downwards towards the free edge (white bit).

People muddle up cuticle with proximal nail fold (eponychium).

Cuticle skin flakes cannot actually be cut, they need gently removing with a cuticle pusher and either warm soapy water or a nail oil.

Proximal nail fold (eponychium) is what gets mislabelled cuticle, it can be almost invisible as its been pushed back and looked after well for years or it can be thick, deep and visible. You may or may not be able to get your proximal nail fold exactly like a photo or like someone elses, that is ok, we are all different. The most important thing is that you understand that the proximal nail fold (eponychium) is an important seal to stop nasties like dirt, bacteria, viruses, fungus etc…. getting underneath your skin and into your blood stream and local tissues, which can lead to infection. It is important to treat it gently, push it back regularly and gradually, do not lift it, do not cut into living tissue. Only tidy up dry, lifted bits that you know are attached by fresh living tissue behind. Please keep the seal intact.

It is advisable to wipe over the nippers with TCP, surgical spirt or similar disinfectant every so often to keep the nippers clean.
