I'm using a buffing cream cause someone misplaced my nail nourishing rubbermaid box of stuff.. its neat after I push, trim, wash I then wipe with a cloth. My nails looks well kept, truthfully ive not trim my cuticle since Oct 2011!! I bought this buffing cream for $1 @ my local Salon Centric. They seem to always have sucb great deals!! Well heres some pics..
