How to Get Perfectly Manicured Cuticles Without Going to the Nail Salon

While there are various steps to giving yourself an at-home manicure, taking care of your cuticles is a step that cannot be skipped! This week in the blog, we are sharing the details of our bestselling Cuticle Exfoliator and how you can give yourself a salon-worthy manicure from home.

What is Melt Away?

Melt Away is our bestselling Cuticle Exfoliator that magically melts away dead or dry skin in the cuticle area in minutes! This must-have nail treatment helps gently remove dry, overgrown cuticles while eliminating the need to clip or trim. Formulated with plant-based conditioning ingredients such as Irish Moss, Melt Away helps to soften and gently exfoliate with each use for healthier-looking cuticles and better-looking nails.

How Do You Use Melt Away?

Melt Away goes on easily, just like your favorite butter LONDON nail lacquer! Begin by shaking the Melt Away bottle and brush on an even layer around the cuticles and nail beds. After approximately 60 seconds, gently push back the cuticles with our Signature Glass Cuticle Pusher or your thumb if you do not have a cuticle pusher handy. Remove excess product with a Nail Scrubber 2-in-1 Prep & Lacquer Remover Wipe, nail polish remover and a cotton pad, or a small hand towel to avoid excess water on the nail. That’s it! Follow with your favourite butter LONDON nail treatment or Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer for a salon-worthy mani.
