Or does it make it messy? I would think this would be a bad idea. I get you're not putting it ON your nail, but the salon always makes you wash your hands after they use lotion, so wouldn't the tiny bit around nails still be an issue? 

Has anyone tried it and had good results?

I don't think I've tried this!  Do you put lotion on your hands/around your nails before you put on the polish?  Other than moisturizing, is there another benefit to doing this?
