Cuticle S.O.S.

As winter is finally coming to an end, it's time to take the dark polishes off of my nails and to dive into the beautiful neutrals and pastels of spring.
With those neutrals and pastels, I find that my nails and fingers have to be in perfect condition in order for me to pull them off. Dark polishes are much more forgiving.

I've already mentioned this product before in other posts so I'm just briefly going to talk about it again - Sally Hansen's instant cuticle remover is a great product for the maintenance of clean and good-looking nail beds. It dissolves all the excess dried up cuticle pieces that like to "crawl" up my nails. All I do is apply the gel over my cuticle area, wait about a minute, then gently push back my cuticles with one of those wooden sticks, then all the excess dissolved pieces just wash away in the sink with soap and water.

This shouldn't be done more than once a week because it can be quite irritating if done too often.

The only thing I am still needing in order to resurrect my fingers for spring is a good cuticle conditioner, what are your favourites?

Hope you're having a fantastic weekend,

- Sandra


  1. I just bought this and used this yesterday!

    i love the lush lemony flutter cuticle butter for some moisture

  2. This product is so cool, but it kinda freaks me out at the same time. I've been using burt's bees cuticle cream and I really like it.

  3. I think the most important part of cuticle care is the conditioning ,if it is done regulary there is no need for cuticle removal :) I do that several times a day with cuticle oils or cuticle butter ( the one from lush is quite good actually)

  4. Burt's Bees Lemon Cuticle Butter is my favorite for dry cuticles. I always have dry cuticles and its so small and portable I can take it with me wherever I go. And it works!

  5. Witchcraft - Almond Oil

    Works great, all Witchcraft nail products are actually pretty good =)

  6. Avoplex cuticle oil to go by OPI! Love the smell of it and it's a really nice oil for your cuticles. You should try it out:)

  7. i'm with vida & lauren, the burt's bees lemon butter cuticle cream is UH-MAZING!

    it works so well, i don't even need to trim my cuticles, they kind of just... shrink. you should definitely try it out.

  8. I love Burt Bee's cuticle cream.

  9. I like the Burts Bees Cuticle Butter. It smells so good I just love sniffing it whenever I use it.

  10. i just tried this out today due to your recommendation. i really like it, its very efficient, thanks for posting about it
