Cuticle oil is your best friend when it comes to your CUTICLES! If you have dry, flaky, and damaged cuticles, and skin sticking out randomly, begging you to rip it off (hangnails), a cuticle oil is ALL you need.

The benefit of cuticle oil include giving your nails that fresh manicure look. It improves the appearance of your nails, making them look healthy and shiny. It also helps them grow faster.

If you’re someone that loves getting artificial nails such as acrylics or gel extensions, this step is so crucial to do everyday as these artificial nails cause your cuticles to dry out.
