Routine Maintenance

Posted on May 17th, 2013 by Shari´ Parks

That’s fingernails are considered routine maintenance. As a therapist the nail length must be kept short at all times. I keep the nails short to assure I do not injure my client with an inadvertent scratch and to avoid any cross contamination from any dead skin cells underneath the nail. You won’t catch polish on my nails when performing bodywork, not even clear. Because again, skin cells and other unknown microorganisms can get stuck underneath a long nail, or the chipped polish and you just won’t notice any of that with a polished nail. Plus all that is just gross.

Sure, I got the funny look from Tony, my manicurist, when I first started going to him. What color would you like? No color please, but do buff them to give them that natural shine. At this point in my career I don’t even call my nails, well nails. I affectionally call them stubs. Even still, they need routine maintenance.
