I always begin my manicure by removing my cuticles and the product I use to do this is the Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover which isn't shy in the blogging world. After seeing Anna rave about this product I thought it was worth a try. Did I think it would work? No, but I was happily proven wrong with it quite literally melting your cuticles away without pain or fuss with the help of a wooden cuticle pusher. If I am really in the mood I will go on to file my nails into a square kind of shape which I am really liking at the moment.
I then apply my base coat, I'm currently using a Rimmel London nail nurse one but I am not really getting on with it and am very open to recommendations for my next purchase! The nail colour will follow after. I recently bought Barry m's Coconut which is a creamy white shade. To finish I usually apply my Seche Vite topcoat but when I have run out and can't afford a new bottle straight away I tend to use Nails Inc's Cavier Topcoat a great alternative but one I probably wouldn't repurchase.
