No matter how great your nail polish, you’ll still look like a vagabond if your cuticles are raggedy. I do not recommend cutting the cuticles yourself at home but there are things you can do to look manicure fresh daily. The best cuticle eliminator product I have ever tried is from Butter London (you’d think I work for them but I don’t and they do not give me product, I pay retail for the amazing products). The Melt Away Cuticule Eliminator is nothing short of a miracle. Dry cuticles that are dangling off the finger? No worries, brush this on, wait two minutes, lightly scrub with an old toothbrush (or a new one, I use my son’s old brush cuz it’s small) and your cuticles will literally melt away. I don’t think you should use this daily lest you wear away all the skin on your finger but twice a week is a must. Follow up with their Cuticle Oil and you’ll look like you just spent big bucks on a fancy spa manicure.
