Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover is a thin gel which you apply to your cuticles, or any dry hard skin around your nails, before leaving it for 15 seconds. Grab one of those cuticle sticks and push them back, whilst dragging the gel off your cuticles. It's gross at first because you see all the white gunk on the stick, but your left with completely polished cuticles. Previously I used the Sally Hansen Gel Cuticle Remover, which sort of disappeared if you left it too long, but I won't be going back now. This stuff is seriously amazing. I'm giving my nails a break at the moment and only popping OPI Nail Envy on so after using this, my nails look good.
You can buy it on Amazon but I'm sure you can track it down in TK Max or on eBay!
