Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil

This year, I made a pact with myself, as outlined in this post, to stop eating my cuticles. I know it is gross, but stress, anxiety and nerves all leave me biting at my nails and cuticles. This year however I am taking my problem seriously and as such, requested a little bottle of Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil be sent all the way from England in my christmas package from my father. 

This little bottle of hydrating goodness has been working wonders on my dried out, unhappy skin. Especially teamed with a pair of moisturising gloves at bedtime. Ok I look a little weird lying in bed with white gloves on, but since I live on my own, only the dog is passing judgement. 

Not only does it have a great apricot scent, it is crammed with cotton seed and soybean oil which really pack a punch when it comes to moisturising properties. So for anyone who suffers with dry skin, cracking cuticles and an inevitable urge to bite away, invest in this little bottle. It will change your life. Promise. 


  1. I used to use this too but then I discovered the cuticle oil from Butter and then my life truly changed! Both the Essie one and the Butter one smell amazing and do wonders, cuticle oil has definitely become an important item in my make-up collection :)

    1. Oh I totally agree Vanisha, I couldn't live without cuticle oil and hand cream. Or lip balm for that matter. Is butter a Australian brand?
