We know we’re inching closer to being able to reopen, but we also know we still have a little time before it’s allowed. If your tips and toes need a little care to get you through until we can be back with you, here are a few more of our quarantine nail care tips (on top of the ones we posted previously). Keep your nails short.This may be easier said than done, and it may not be your usual style. But short nails aren’t as prone to breakage. Breakage leads to picking. Picking leads to tears which can easily get infected. And we’re pretty sure we can all agree that lessening chances of any type of infection is paramount right now.

This wards off calluses as well as keeps skin and cuticles hydrated, which in turn keeps your pedicure looking nice for a longer time.
