A good manicure is essential. Not only does it make your hands and nails feel and look fabulous, but it is a fairly inexpensive treat. If you’re forced to stretch out your visits to the nail salon, be sure to maintain your look by removing chipped polish. We shouldn’t have to guess if the polish is on or off. A natural nail, is always a better look than chipped nails. And ultimately, pay attention to your cuticles.
You should soften your cuticles weekly. Use cuticle oil. Just a small drop on each cuticle will work wonders. Rub it in and you’ll notice how much softer your cuticles are. Use an orange wood stick to gently push back your cuticle. Not only will it improve the look and feel of your nails in between visits, it will also make it easier for your nail stylist on your next visit. Try Lemon and Jojoba Cuticle Oil by Carol’s Daughter, $9.50. The smell is delightful.
