I use Sally Hansen strengthening with bamboo as my basecoat, and Seche Vite as my topcoat (which is amazing stuff, it's so shiny and smooth).

This is what I'm talking about:
Spoiler!
If you can get ahold of some filipino Pink Cuticle remover (that's actually what it's called) the stuff is amazing, and super cheap. It works wonders. You just put a little on (like a drop or two per nail) and let it sit for a couple of seconds, then use a pusher to push it back towards your finger. The cuticle will be so soft that you can wipe it off with a washcloth or brush it off with a nail brush (you wont even need to cut it at all).

There's another brand of the same stuff, called Hortaleza (this is what I use, my mom uses Pink, they both work the same).

Hortaleza Professional Cuticle Remover 100 mL - Yollie's Oriental Market


I'd take a picture of my current mani, but my camera hates me right now. It's shimmery purple with sky blue dots on the tips.
