Is it normal that the tips don’t completely close or touch?

Yes, that is normal. Tile is generally much thicker than the closed opening on these nips and will snap well before the tips are fully closed.

Very useful. I was able to trim mosaic tile when I needed smaller pieces. I don't give it a 5 because it was a little difficult to trim small little edges when cuts with the saw didn't go as smoothly as planned. However, the price was great and it did the job.
