How I cured my cuticles of hangnails and hard skin around the edges VIDEO

Dear Lacqueristas,

As you might remember from my earlier posts, I used to have huge problems with my cuticles. They were hard and ragged. And I would always be very annoyed by the hard skin that builds up around the edges of the nail.
Having bad cuticles is like being stuck in a loop, I just couldn't keep myself from pulling them. Cutting them made it even worse! I came up with this method because the skin that I'm referring to is hard because of dead skin cells building up. Same as callus on your feet. And how do we remove that? Riiiight... *dung* I had my eureka moment. And it works so good for me that I thought I'd share it with you. No more hangnails for me, yay!



My first tutorial video, and my audio advisor was the boyfriend lol!

I fitted it in my manicure routine after applying cuticle remover and pushing back the cuticles. Then wash hands, now it 's time for the .... ehmm.... I'll call it sanding down the hard cuticles... *you got a better name?*

If you want to try this, you want to make sure the file doesn't touch your actual nail. It helped me to pinch the flesh at the back of my finger so the sides of the skin would part a little.

Let me know if you already use this method, and how it works for you!

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!

I do this too! I call it manual exfoliation - that sounds more gentle.

I've never filed my cuticles, but I exfoliate them with olive oil and sugar mixed together.

I moisturize like crazy and still have occasionally hard cuticles close to the end of the nail, like you did. I couldn't get your video to work tho and I wanted to see it. :( I will check in later tho. ~Chris

OMGosh!!! I have been trying to figure out what to do about that hard skin. It had gotten so bad that I would use my cuticle nippers to clip it all off, which only made my fingers look mis-shapen & when the skin would grow back it would be even worse. I'm at work right now & just pulled out an old emery board that I usefor ER purposes & tried it & that hard skin was gone in like 5 seconds! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
