Let me tell you something that may sound strange to you: I do not use any cuticle removers nor I cut my cuticles in my daily nail care routine. I only push them back with a wooden orange stick every time before painting my nails and after removing nail polish, and every time after that I apply a nail oil to keep the cuticles moisturized.
I’m not saying my cuticles always look perfect: during cold months they often look really dry, but I never had any desire to go and buy a cuticle remover. Whenever I see them in bad shape I moisturise them, and it always helps.
However, Adieu! cuticle remover was sent to me from Dance legend as a bonus nail care product, and I thought I’d give it a try. I decided to use it while doing a pedicure. I applied a small amount of the DL Adieu! cuticle remover onto the cuticles and let it sit for about 2 minutes. It’s said that the ingredients in the remover are designed to soften the cuticles and break down any dead skin around nail beds. Then I pushed the cuticles back using an orange stick like I always do, and that was followed by usual scrubbing and moisturising.
Overall, I liked the remover, and I think I’ll be using it once in a while for pedicure. As for my manicure routine I’ll stick to just moisturising and pushing the cuticles back the way I always do. I’m not saying the product is bad, it works fine! It’s just me being conservative :)
Here’s a pic of the bottle of Dance Legend Adieu! cuticle remover and its contents:
Now let me tell you what I used for today’s nail art to spice up the boring nail care post. I decided to do a pink/silver/grey floral skittlette, and for that I needed three Dance Legend nail polishes: Lilia, Ksenia and a black creme for stripes and flowers. The silver accent is ORLY Dazzle. The stripes and flowers are hand painted with the polishes.
Thank you for looking! Have a good relaxing weekend!
