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!
