On the 11th day of Christmas

Amazon gave to me, a pack of Sturdy Emery boards.

I yearn for the days when I used to have long, strong pretty nails, but those days are long, long gone now that I have changed careers to become a Massage Therapist.
It's ok to say that a weekly trip to the nail salon is acceptable as a tax deduction, however when you use your fingers as often as we do, the stimulation on the nail bed means our nails grow like weeds. Which means that clipping and filing your nails so that they don't scratch or hurt your client becomes a daily chore, and the cheap nail files/emery boards just will not do. I've found that investing in a few sturdy, longer lasting files makes a huge difference.
So please take care of your fingers, and your clients this Christmas by staying on top of your grooming routine.
