On March 13, I left school for Spring Break. While I fully expected to not return to school for a week afterwards, I never expected to finish the school year online. It’s been…..challenging, but that’s a post for another day. I go to the grocery store once a week, and Amanda and I will go out once a week to pick up a coffee or lunch at a local restaurant that offers contactless pickup. I lucked up and had my hair colored (purple is makes the gray really noticeable!) during Spring Break before we had a stay at home order and things started shutting down. Like many women, one of the things that has been put on hold are regular manicures. I’ve been getting gel manicures for years, but these days I’m on my own. My nails are very short and tend to peel, so I’m trying to strengthen them. Every night before bed, I use three of my favorite things. Two are from L’Occitane and one is from CND. I swipe on the CND Rescue Rxx with keratin to add strength and then add the L’Occitane Nail and Cuticle Oil and once that dries, slather on the L’Occitane Shea Hand Cream. I’m also learning to to give myself a proper manicure. YouTube is an invaluable source. My nails are still short, but I’ve managed to stop them from peeling as much.Maybe the next step is to figure out the whole gel thing as I can’t manage to make regular polish last more than a day or two, no matter what I do. I guess that’s one thing I’ve managed to accomplish during quarantine! Hope everyone is staying safe and social distancing!
