Nail Care Tips for Fall

fall nail care tips from Polished Nail Bar
We’re heading into October soon, and surely the weather will cool off eventually. Right?!?!?! As with all season changes, nail care tips for fall are a bit different than for summer. Follow these simple nail care tips for the best nails as we move into autumn. After washing your hands, slather on hand moisturizer. At night, rub cuticle oil (or olive oil or coconut oil if you’re in a pinch) in to your cuticles. Use rubber gloves when washing dishes. Limit the time you spend in hot showers or bath tubs. Wear gloves or mittens when it’s cold and you’re outside. Do not tear or bite off hang nails.  This leaves you vulnerable to infections. Get manicures on a regular basis. To keep your nails in tip-top shape this season and every season, head to your nearest Polished Nail Bar for some mani/pedi time!
