Hands are often in sight, so it's important to keep your nails clean. Manicure in this case is a prerequisite. But not every woman indulges herself with visiting salons. Therefore, you have to resort to means with which it is easy to put your nails in order on your own. Our article will help you decide on the choice of cosmetic products and tools.

The experts took into account the feedback from experienced craftsmen and users, having compiled a rating of the 17 best cuticle removers and tools.

What to look for when choosing cuticle removal products and tools

  1. Kinds. Products for removing cuticles are divided into groups: removers (liquid products that dissolve the cuticle due to special components in the composition), gels (similar to the action of removers), oils (soften a not very neglected cuticle, allowing it to move away painlessly, moisturize the nail plate, and also the skin around), pencils (have a composition like a remover or a gel, but more convenient to use due to the release form). It is worth choosing a product that will solve the tasks. For example, with dry cuticles, you should pay attention to the oil, and in the presence of strong skin growths – to a remover or gel. If you have to go on a trip, then opt for a pencil.
  2. Composition. In terms of composition, the products are: acidic (contain lactic, fruit and other acids), alkaline (used to remove coarse cuticles), mineral (delicately affect, nourish the skin with microelements, therefore they are used to maintain a manicure done) and oil (soften dry cuticles at the expense of caring natural ingredients). Be careful only with alkaline so as not to harm the nail plate. Use alkaline products only on rare occasions when you need to remove severely neglected cuticles.
  3. The convenience of use. The packaging is responsible for this parameter. It is more convenient to apply the oil composition with a brush, therefore such products are available in bottles resembling nail polish. It is important to control the amount of remover and gel in order to apply a narrow strip to the cuticle, which means that an elongated pointed nose with a tiny hole is required. A pencil looks like a felt-tip pen with a hard beveled point, much less often with a brush.
