How to remove cuticle using cuticle oil?

When you are not applying any nail polish on your nail you still have to some basic maintenance like REMOVING CUTICLE and you actually can do it your own. Here I will share with you some steps to remove the cuticle at home using cuticle oil instead of CUTICLE SOFTENER.


  1. Cuticle Oil : I am using Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil
  2. Cuticle Clipper : You will see two sizes in the market, 4mm and 6mm. If you are beginner I would advise you to get a 4mm.
  3. Cuticle Pusher
  4. Warm water
  5. Nail Strengthener
    I am using Nail Tek Intensive Therapy II for soft/peeling nail


  1. Remove all nail polish if you have any on your nails.
  2. Apply cuticle oil on to the nail area with cuticle and massage the nail.

  3. Soak your hand into warm water for 3-5 minutes. Remove your hand from the warm water and dry your hand.
  4. The cuticle should be soft by now, use the cuticle to push the soft cuticle. Sign of soft cuticle – you can easily push it with pusher.

    ATTENTION: ONLY pushing those cuticle overlay on your nail plate. AVOID pushing the eponychium because it acts as a barrier seal to stop bacteria, infection from getting to the matrix.

  5. Use your cuticle clipper to cut the extra cuticle. CAUTION: Cut carefully!

  6. Apply the nail strengthener.

  7. Done! But don't forget to apply your nail strengthener on daily basis!

Now you have a nice pair of hand even though you did not put on any nail polish!
