I’ve been doing my own manicures for some time now, and my biggest challenge was to find a good pre-soak that would clean and soften cuticles. And not cost a fortune.
In desperation one day, and recalling an old TV commercial about some kind of dishwashing liquid in a nail salon (oh my!), I grabbed my Blue Dawn and figured that at worst, it wouldn’t kill me. And if it turned my hands blue, I’d deal with it.
Well, surprise, surprise! I soaked my hands in full-strength Blue Dawn for on few minutes, rinsed it off … and Wow! It makes the cuticles soft and easy to work with. And it removes the natural oil from the fingernails, which allows the polish to adhere very well. And that’s my best manicure tip, ever! Cindy
P.S. By the way, I’ve tried other brands dishwashing liquid, and none I’ve found work like Blue Dawn.
