Some good tips here Terre and thanks. I especially took note of this one..Rub some hand cream into your hands and nails. Make sure to removed it from your nails before you polish them. This will condition your nails.
I never knew that and am going to try it next time :)
I never have, nor would I, but that's just me.
Even I push my cuticles back. I'm not sure what the reason for pushing them back is but I push mine back.
Those are some very good tips. I just don't get why some people think its okay to push their cuticles back. They are fine, then I'd just leave them alone.
