With the COVID-19 pandemic dominating the news cycle, we will take the next 3 weeks to share tips provided by noted health professionals on ways to protect yourself from coronavirus, starting with your fingernails.
According to the Center for Disease Control, the novel coronavirus can be spread from person to person through droplets in the air, skin-to-skin contact, or through bacteria picked up by our fingers... or under our fingernails.
FARGO YOUR NAIL SALON FOR A DIY MANI
In the past few days, as the virus has grown into a global pandemic, health experts and officials now recommend cancelling all non-essential appointments and outings and urge citizens to practice social distancing. That means skipping the salon or spa indefinitely. Many responsible beauty brands and retailers, from small-town salons to Glossier stores nationwide, have already taken preventative measures by closing their doors in the interest of public health.
That doesn't mean your manicure has to suffer — if you have nail clippers, a file, and polish, you can simply DIY your own. Not only is the at-home mani a surefire way to stop you from scrolling through Twitter, but it'll also help you make the most of your time on the couch. A few weeks of practice could turn you into a nail-art pro.
