Have you gotten a manicure before? You need to push back the cuticle and then use a special tool to trim it.

Cuticle oil, I get mine at Sallys and a $3 bottle lasts me a year. Put it on everyday while getting, followed by hand cream and my nails are smooth.

Push back your cuticle’s regularly and then use a cuticle oil on them at night time to help them from getting to dry and cracking.

I personally just use vitamin E (from a gel vitamin etc) or aloe vera. I would assume that most brands [of cuticle oil] would be basically the same? (I could be wrong).

Keep them oiled… almost anything will work… but Vit E is great.  (Like missmouse29 said, break open the gel vitamin or buy a cuticle oil).  Sally’s has a nice line I can’t remember the name of… in a white box with pink and turqouise stripes…

@MissGreen: When my fingers feel really dry, I use olive oil that sits in my kitchen 🙂 I just put a little bit on my hands and rub in before I go to sleep. Olive oil works as well as any cuticle oil, in my opinion.

@lazybee:@stokieGal: Awesome tip!

I use Sally Hansen’s VitaSurge Growth Gel all over my nail, including my cuticle and surrounding skin. I let it sit for a couple of minutes and then rub it it. It seems to work really well.

Do you get enough vitamin c? that is supposed to help with skin around the nails.
