Cuticle Chronicles: Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover

Hello y'all! Here is finally another Cuticle Chronicles post! :)
Today I'm showing you the Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover. Cuticle removers, shockingly enough, remove your excess cuticles. You know the stuff that grows up over your moons? That stuff. With this stuff you just smear some on your cuticles, wait 2 minutes, and push back your cuticles with a manicure stick. Then wash your hands or you will die a slow and painful death. :D
As you can see, this guy is very easy to use and isvery inexpensive (less than $4) as well. This is the first cuticle remover I tried, and I like it quite a lot. My friends and I oo and ahh over the way our cuticles just slide off after applying it. I'm eager to try CND Cuticle Eraser, and CND Solar Oil. Hopefully my next CC post will be about the Cuticle Eraser, as I plan to buy it after I get home from Colorado.
What is y'all's favorite cuticle remover? Do you use a cuticle remover?


  1. I use the CND Cuticle Erasure and have the Solar Oil. You have to use them to get them to work. One is right by my keyboard and the other on my endtable in the living room. Do I use them? Rarely buy I'm going to make an effort to do so. I also have a big bottle of some cuticle remover that I bought from It works really well and your cuticles and fingers feel really smooth and soft. Glad your having a good time in Colorado. The tubing sounds like such fun. I would love to just climb up the mountain and sit down and enjoy the view.

  2. I use Nutra Nail Green Tea cuticle remover. I have used the Sally Hanson stuff in the green tube and it scares me to death. I didn't wash it off once - it literally took one of my toenails off. Slow and painful death is right. I'm not even kidding. Nutra Nail is very gentle and natural. I still wash it off though. You only need to experience that once.

  3. Lucy - Awesome, I'll remember that.
    Haha, well it's really nice to get to the top of the mountain and enjoy the view, but while you're climbing in the 8,000+ altitude it's not so fun. :D The condo we stay in is on a mountain though, so we get the nice view without having to do anything. :)
    Kaybee - Ooo, I'm sorry! I thought about buying that green SH stuff, but I was scared b/c it said it was for extreme cuticles or something ... and I didn't want anything bad to happen. I'm sorry it happened to you! :O

  4. Hi... Do you think you could post before and after photos of your nails/cuticles when using this product? I only see moons on my thumbnails, but not the other fingers, so when you write about "the stuff that grows over your moons" I can't really picture it.

  5. I use something called Blue Cross cuticle remover that I got at Sally's Beauty Supply. It's a huge bottle that will last me forever and seems to do a pretty good job. I use Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme 2-3 times a day AND I put on hand lotion every time I wash my hands. I used to pick at my cuticles and they were in rough shape before I started taking care of them. They've improved a great deal.

  6. kayce - Of couse I can! I will definitely do that next time I post a Cuticle Chronicles. :)
    Nosaby - Ooo, I'm a big fan of Burt's Bees, but I only use it @ night, as it is so greasy. Wow, you're pretty good if you put lotion on every time you wash your hands. I don't do it that often.
