Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover $5.99 at Ulta
I’ve been using this cuticle remover for a while. I love that it works quickly and I must say the 1 oz. bottle has lasted for a loooong time. I mean when it comes to nail products it has lasted longer than anything I’ve got besides some abandoned polishes in my stash.
I was looking for an easy to use (pain-free) cuticle remover a while ago. I used to go to the nail salon like it was my job. But about two years ago I decided to really take over doing my own manicures and saving the money that I used to spend on the right tools to do the job myself. I’m really glad that I made that investment. I got better and better at doing my own nails. I know them like the back of my hand now HA HA HA. But seriously with a few inexpensive tools you can make your manicures look professional and last longer. This is one of the products I swear by.
For $6 you can get rid of those pesky dry cuticles. I dot and spread a little of this remover on each cuticle area and push things gently back with a q-tip. I don’t leave the remover on for long. This doesn’t take much time to work. It works really fast. I wash my hands really well after and get going with a base coat and my manicure officially starts.
I usually use Instant Cuticle Remover once every two weeks or so. I try not to overdo it. I also like to use it whenever I use a darker nail polish that stains my cuticle area badly. My recent nail of the day post Dotty Navy for example. After using blue nail polishes or dark green ones I notice serious discoloration all around my nail bed. Instant Cuticle Remover not only helps push back my cuticles but it also makes all that blue go away!
