Try Essie's Many Many Mani Intensive Hand Lotion and Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil for serious hydration. Recommend your clients use several times throughout the day. "This will prevent skin around the nails from cracking or splitting," Trunzo says. "Also, a home treatment tip: After showering or bathing, coat your cuticles and nails with Apricot Cuticle Oil and lock in moisture by wearing cotton gloves for at least an hour--or better yet, to bed!"
