I do my cuticle work with Cuticle Eraser and solar Oil, then I exfoliate and massage with SolarManicure. I then pop the hands into hot mitts and leave for about 10mins. This ensures the product works at a deep level. I expect you could also coat the hands in wax too for a similar effect. I then massage the arm and hand. The hands are then washed, squeaked and polished applied. I then massage an application of SolarButter. All finished!
