Cuticle oil treatment is a step in a toe nail service that involves applying oil to the cuticles of the toenails. The cuticle is the thin layer of skin that surrounds the base of the nail. Cuticle oil is typically made from a blend of nourishing oils, such as jojoba, almond, or vitamin E oil.
The purpose of the cuticle oil treatment is to moisturize and hydrate the cuticles, as they can often become dry and cracked. The oil helps to soften the cuticles, making them easier to push back and trim during the nail service. Additionally, the oil nourishes the surrounding skin, promoting healthy nail growth.
A technician or nail professional will usually gently massage the cuticle oil into the cuticles and surrounding area with their fingers or a brush. This step is often done towards the end of the toe nail service, following the filing, shaping, and polishing of the nails. The cuticle oil treatment provides a finishing touch and leaves the nails and surrounding skin looking and feeling hydrated and rejuvenated.« Back to Glossary Index
