Apply cuticle remover to the base of each nail and rub in (try Sally Hansen, a basic remover that works great).

Leave the cuticle remover on for a minute, then use an orangewood stick (Tweezerman works great) to gently push with a circular motion everywhere where skin meets the nail (including the sides). Be careful to remove skin only on top of the nail, don't touch the toe flesh.

If you are confident you won't cut yourself, you can use cuticle nippers (Mehaz nippers work best) to trim any loose skin, but I recommend leaving your cuticles be.
