Actually, beauty and co are our smallest problem during the current Corona crisis. With gel or shellac nails in particular, saying "doesn't matter" is not that easy. They keep growing - which can get really uncomfortable over time - for daily work, but also for the natural nail itself. So what to do
Simply work with nail polish remover containing acetone and hope for the best? Or even use the electric file? We asked nail expert Judit Klar from Salon Miss Nail what we should do before we can put ourselves back in the hands of a professional.
"Regardless of whether you wear gel or shellac nails, it is best not to start experimenting with nail polish remover or sanding tools.

With a coarse file, this is also very quick. Please do not use nail clipper or scissors to shorten it.

So: Be patient, keep your cuticles nice and supple and push them back if necessary. Then the nails will continue to look reasonably well-groomed. How do you best take care of your natural nails?
