During Autumn/Winter my cuticles are especially dry and Sally Hansen's Cuticle rehab seems to do the trick. This product is also great to use on the go! Carry it in your handbag and apply to your nails when necessary.

Apply your base coat on to clean, dry nails. Ensuring there is no product or oil left on the nail bed's. 
Having a smooth base coat will ensure your colour glides on smoothly too.

I finished my Autumnal manicure with two coats of this beautiful, vibrant shade in the colour "Redgy", and one coat of Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel Topcoat. 

Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel range come's in over 40+ shades. They offer a gel like finish to the nails, without the need of a lamp and easy removal using the regular Sally Hansen nail polish remover.
