QUERY: Not so long ago, I regularly visited Jenny on Monroe Street for a full set, crystal embellishments and a jelli pedicure. Alas, I haven't seen Jenny since March and my nails, like my nerves are suffering from a form of PTSD. Can you recommend a path forward to save my digits?

You are not alone, darling. All of us are struggling to maintain our appearances in the virtual realm and beyond. I have tried press on nails, minx nails, the 3-step Chanel polish system and au natural. Although nothing compares to the work of @celestialnails or @bthartistry, if you want bomb designs on your fingers without any nail damage, try Minx Nails. Applied with heat and no glue, Minx last up to 10 days and cost $15.99 for a pack of 25. With the newest rise in Covid cases throughout the DMV, you have more than enough time to perfect your technique. #DIYwithMEdarling!
