Aquarium Pharmaceuticals makes shoulder-length "Aquatic Gloves". I bought a 
12-pack a while ago from Pet Warehouse. They're like your typical food 
service disposable gloves, but longer. I use one on occasion and they work 
fine; they're very thin, so I would think trimming tools wouldn't be a 
problem. (Normally I just plunge my hands in naked and use my fingernails 
as the only trimming tool, but occasionally I have an allergic reaction, or 
have a scratch or cut I want to protect.)
