Heal Dry, Unruly Cuticles
Deborah Lippmann, manicurist to the stars, started out as a songstress and, as a result, many of her nail products are named after major pop icons, and other pop culture songs and figures. Before adding a pop of color, try her cuticle remover. A great cuticle remover is a must for every manicure. This one contains virgin wool wax (lanolin) oil, a natural humectant, which prevents dehydration of the cuticle. Potassium hydroxide gently softens dead, dry skin.

- Virgin wool wax oil for preventing dehydration of the cuticle
- Potassium hydroxide for softening dead, dry skin
Some cost-cutting salons will use cuticle oil as a substitute, but these two products have two very different purposes. Cuticle oil is for hydration, while a cuticle remover loosens the dead skin and makes it easier to push back. The cuticle area is very delicate and should never be pushed back without applying a cuticle remover first to soften the skin. Trauma to this area can cause improper nail growth forever, so be careful.
