5 easy quarantine nail care tips cover

While we are all having quarantine and staying home to save lives, it’s important to keep ourselves safe and sound, which means proper health care and various routines, which you can extend to get more pleasure. Some care that you usually got from professionals isn’t available now and you should do that yourself, for example, treat your nails right.

If you go to the salon for frequent manicures and pedicures, you’re likely in a mild state of panic over how best to take care of your nails — particularly if you have gels or dips.

Don’t pick at dips or shellacs, which will weaken your nailbed. Instead, soak some cotton balls in acetone and wrap them around your nails to soften the product.

Once the material is soft, you can use an orangewood stick to gently scrape off the residue, followed by a light file-buffing. Clean everything off with alcohol and cotton.

If you’ve been sporting dark polish and you’re nails are stained, there’s a solution for getting them back to their natural state. Make a paste using 1 T. peroxide and 2 1/4 tsp. baking soda and letting it sit on your nails for five minutes. After that, the slate should essentially be wiped clean. If you want to polish your nails with usual polish, feel free to, or go for various nail serums to restore your nails.
