The truth is, there is no amount of nail polish that can camouflage dry, ragged cuticles, and sometimes, there is just no time for a full-blown manicure in the middle of a busy week. Enter: nail masks. These at-home remedies leave your cuticles super soft after just one use and make your nails look like you just left your spa appointment. Here are five top performers you need to try.

Best For: Serious Manicure Damage

Sally’s Box Friendly Milk Nail Mask ($5)

If you constantly peel off your gel manicures (or get them, in general), look this way. Packed with nourishing goat milk and hydrating glycerin, these masks work to rewind any damage done by gel manis, leaving your once stripped and patchy nails now softened, healthy and bright.
