Down to number 9 of my top 10 Summer beauty favorites, you can check out no. 10 here. So if you’re a polish gal there’s almost nothing more important than effortlessly achieving a simple manicure without investing too much time + know how you don’t really have. Until I started using this cuticle eraser I was really doing a full soak + trim of my cuticle followed, of course, by moisturizer + blah blah blah. Not that any of that isn’t important but one wrong move with cuticle trimmers + you’ll end up with more of sore cuticles {really horrid looking}  then prim, proper + trim cuticles.


My first take on the Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Cuticle Eraser + Balm was that it was too greasy to really to anything good for my rough cuticles.  It just felt a bit unreal that this thick to the touch cream was going to transform my cuticles to something other than the mess they had become from lack of maintenance. Not wanting to rush through it I popped in a Jason Statham movie + plopped down on the couch with my hubby. An action flick ensures relentless “working in” of the cuticle cream {really all of those fight scenes leave me a bit breathless though I know the lead character never really loses} + constant company from my beau who won’t care what I’m doing to my nails as long as I’m done by the end of the show. I could tell by the time I was applying my second coat of polish that my cuticles overall looked + felt moisturized but it wasn’t until the next day that I noticed how perdy they actually looked. My not so dark confession? I used it on my toes as well. It is after all a cuticle eraser, mind as well experiment right? All the rubbing got kind of old after a bit but way more convenient than the salon experience.



You can buy this cuticle cream just about anywhere. I got mine from Walgreens for about $5 + plan on ordering a few more in the near future. Seems like I made a pretty good dent for one use so better to be safe then with ragged nails!


Are there any traditional home remedies you use for your cuticles? Do you think they work better than retail products?
