Polished Nail Bar Reopening Plans

Polished Nail Bar is excited to announce that, in accordance with Phase 2 of Governor Cooper’s reopening plan, we will reopen our seven NC salons at 9:30am on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. As always, the safety of our staff and clients is of utmost importance in our own reopening process, and every decision has been made with careful consideration. As such, we are implementing the following: Customers will now be required to wait outside until a technician escorts them inside the salon for their service(s). Waiting area furniture has been removed from each location, and waiting inside will not be allowed. Technicians will stay with customers from the time they enter the salon until the time they exit the salon, including while picking polish colors. Only technicians will be allowed to touch the polishes. Technicians and clients will be expected to wear masks during their time in the salon, and masks

Keep your hands, feet, and nails moisturized.Cuticle oil, coconut oil, or olive oil are great for your nails, and any sort of hand cream will work for your hands

Nail Care Tips During Self-Isolation

You got your nails done. All was great. Then we’re now under self-isolation, with salons required to close until further notice as of 5pm on March 23rd. (We were proactive and closed all of our salons earlier for the safety of our clients and staff.) So how should you care for your nails during this time? Our general nail care tips stay the same, though they may be even more important now. After hand washing, slather your hands in moisturizer. And since we’re all washing our hands a lot more often (right?!?!?!?), dry skin is at a higher potential than usual. At night, rub cuticle oil (or olive oil if you’re in a pinch) in to your cuticles. Use rubber gloves when washing dishes. Limit time spent in hot showers or tubs. Do not tear or bite off hang nails.  We’re supposed to be keeping our hands away from our faces anyway, and definitely
