    23 Things You Should Try If You Have Hands And Use Them A Lot

    And almost all are under $30.

    1. A bottle of liquid soap that'll clean your hands, without leaving them feeling dry. It's made with oatmeal and avocado oil, so it'll add moisture back into your skin instead of stripping it away.

    2. A pair of nail clippers that'll help you touch up your talons in a jiffy. They even have a file with a curved hook to help you smooth any chips and clear any dirt from underneath your claws.

    3. A bottle of nude Essie nail polish that'll look like your nails, but better. It'll add a little shine and polish to your digits and reviewers say it's a great alternative to gel nail polish.

    4. A bottle of cuticle remover that'll make your nails (and skin around them) smoother, softer, and more hydrated. It's a gel-based formula that washes away with warm water, so you won't need to use tools like a cuticle clipper.

    5. A hand mask that'll return some much-needed moisture to your dry skin. The gloves are lined with a coconut-infused serum that'll soften and hydrate your skin, and they use your natural body heat to create warmth, so the oils penetrate deep into your dermis.

    7. A cuticle serum that'll keep your nails and cuticles hydrated in between manis. It's made with biotin to help keep your talons healthy and strong, and reviewers say it keeps their nails from peeling and breaking.
