I read in another thread that one person hated cuticle work and one didn't.

I would actually happily do cuticle work for a living. I sit there with my cuticle remover and my tools and however 'gunky' they are I just love making a silk purse out of a sows ear. Even better is toes they are usually so neglected and it is like a transformation.

Anybody got a vacancy for a cuticler:lol:

I too get a huge sense of satisfaction when I see all the gunk coming off, job well done and all that :lol: and I have got to agree with the toe thing too.

Oh I love it, the more gunk the better. I hate it when someone already has clean and tidy cuticles. Although for some odd reason I don't like cleaning under the nail ... maybe it's cos it brings back memories of when I had a client who was badly hungover and had the remains of the previous night's curry under there ... I nearly heaved!

I love cuticle removal too... and like you Sarah I hate cleaning under the free edge, especially from the ladies and gentlemen at the nursing home as I don't think it is left over curry under their free edge ... although I expect a similar colour !!!!! 'Heave' :eek::eek: All in a day's work .... bless 'em! :cry:

Eewww and Eeew to the last two posts!! Can't say Ive had anything like that, but I have a sensitive tummy and don't know how you weren't sick :lol:

I like the end result of cuticle work, sense of achievement and that but really don't like the gunk that comes off, but Im a bit funny with lots of things to be honest!

Eww I hate it!

My worst client yet was a nail biter and a smoker - the goo that came off was not only loads, but it was yellow and smelly too.:eek: quite literally was churning my stomach.

If it's a regular and I have been doing their cuticles for a few weeks then obviously it's not so bad.

But yes, I hate it.:rolleyes:

I love it! I really get a deep sense of satisfaction from it. And I love it when a new client who says "oh my nails are awful" look completely amazed at the transformation before I even tip them!

Hate doing my own cuticles, though. Get really bored. Odd. :eek:

I love cuticle work, although I wish that it didn't add so much time to my enhancement services :cry:

It doesn't really bother me either way but on the very rare occasion I have had one too many shandy's the night before, doing cuticle work actually makes me feel sick.....note to self don't have too many shandy's on a school night!

Maybe I am odd but I love doing foot cuticle work but not hand. Probably because you get much more gunk from toes than fingers and the more gunk the better! I get a real sense of a job well done.

I find it quite satisfying , but when i do my mums who is a keen gardener and wipe mucky cuticle on a tissue sometimes turns my stomach, otherwise i enjoy creating a clean canvas to work on!:)
