First Line Of Defense

I have little patience with polish but learned to appreciate a manicure from a dedicated amateur of the classical guitar. Sam collected well-used diamond files to buff the precious edges of his fingernails.

It’s small step from the business end of a nail to the bed. The multi-grit buffers on the market make it easy to groom a cuticle so that it does not grow out with the nail and tear open, rendering the hand open to infection. A sore hangnail is telling you it’s in trouble. Take action when this happens.

Most of my day is spent working with my hands. A buffed natural nail trimmed even with the end of the finger deteriorates gracefully and is easy to accomplish while watching the morning news.
