Tips, Tricks, and Tutorials Tuesday - Cuticle Removal

Hey there, hi there, ho there!  Today, I'm going to talk about how I remove excess cuticles.  There are tons of tutorials out there with video, so this will be quick and to the point.  I currently use Be Natural Cuticle Eliminator, which I got from Sally Beauty.  I also use a cuticle tool that has a pusher on one end and a curette on the other.  I do this once every week or two.

I put the cuticle remover on two nails at a time.  I let it sit for a minute or so, then get to work.  Using the pusher end of my tool, I gently push the cuticle back (if you are not sure where the "true" cuticle is, look it up online first to avoid damage and/or infection).  Then, I go over the outer edges with the curette to remove any remaining bits of cuticle.  I don't not apply much pressure at all.  I just lightly run the tool over the nail bed, and let it do all the work.  Then, I rinse my nail in water.  I use a towel to dry my nail, and gently rub the cuticle area with the towel to gently remove any residue and push back the cuticle.  I just repeat this process for each finger.  That's all, folks!
