Cracked finger nail cuticles can be a nuisance especially for people who love to pocket most of the time. One of the basic finger nail care tip is to pushing back the cuticles. This needs to be done gently for those sensitive ones. In the event that yours are perched or cracked applying cuticle oil ensures you get a painless experience.

Once you develop the cuticle push back habit, you will achieve and keep beautiful nails.
