i got so much advice on here about a good nail polish thought id see what recommendations people had on nail and cuticle cream. i have hideous, freakishly fast growing, dry, thick cuticles and dry skin on surface on nail which really buggers up the finish of my nail polish. i rub oil into my cuticles but makes no difference. any ideas how i can keep it under control?

Flexitol nail & cuticle cream is amazing! I've tried almost every cuticle oil but this made a difference right away.
I have very very rough & dry cuticles.

Have you tried almond oil? (Very cheap from chemists).

I got the idea from MN about 2 weeks ago and my nails/cuticles are transformed.

Glad to see the rec for Flexitol - I just bought some yesterday (I'd been using Boots cuticle cream, which also seems good). My problem is rough cuticles, though.

This is super cheap and works a treat. Reviews say it all.

Try Almond oil.... This should work well for you and is a cheap alternative to other high street brands.

Have heard CND SolarOil is good but have not tried it

I think anything works but you have to use it twice a day whatever you decide on.

I like Nails inc cuticle pen as it's handy to keep in my bag and I can whip it put whenever I think of it.
