This recipe softens the cuticle, preparing it to be groomed as part of your manicure. It has a fresh, lemony scent and will help your cuticles remain supple and pliable.

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon warm (runny) honey
2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup warm/hot water

Blending Procedure:
1. Mix honey and lemon juice very well with a teaspoon, and quick movements.
2. Add the water next and stir to incorporate.
3. To use, soak finger nails in the mixture for 5 minutes each. Blot dry and gently push back the cuticle skin around the nail using a cuticle stick or a pop sickle stick.
4. Use a creamy lotion right away to moisturize your cuticles. Continue with your manicure as usual or leave nails natural and fresh.
