Where can I find one and how does it work?

Is it just for cuticle removal or can you use it on your feet?

When I try to search online for Hindostone, all I get is coasters...

Howdy!!

The Hindostone is a pencil like tool, and you dip it in warm water and gently move it back and forth at the cuticle. It will loosen, erase and slough off that skin that is stuck to the nail. You only use it on nails (toenails too), but not heels.

I found a site that sells them:

Thanks for the link!

Yeah, I came across that web page and there was no picture to see what exactly a Hindostone was.

Will they scratch the nail surface?

No it won't scratch the nail surface. But don't do the entire nail, only the cuticle area.
