HOW TO USE 1. Rub ample amounts of moisturizer or cuticle cream into clean nails and hands to gently soften skin and cuticles. 2. Soak hands in a bowl of warm water with your favorite essential oil or Epsom salts (avoid soap at this stage, as it can be drying). 3. Gently clean under and around nail using the curette end of the tool. 4. Use the contoured end of the tool to delicately push back cuticles on each hand. If there is excess dead cuticle buildup, trim the dead skin only and very carefully with our precision nippers. Wipe any excess oil off nails with polish remover.
