The quandary of using cuticle oil. It is meant to nourish the nails as well as the skin surrounding the nails or cuticle. Everyone needs to have a bottle at home to regularly maintain a healthy sheen on your nails and prevent cuticles from cracking and splitting painfully. Something ordinary moisturizers are unable to do. However, if used just after a mani or pedi, it causes the nail polish to peel off quickly. The solution is to use cuticle oil regularly and abstain just after a fresh coat of polish unless you have false nails on.
