What to do your with your nails when salons are closed

Ladies, it’s time to take nails into your own hands

HOUSTON – When owner Maryam Naderi made the decision to close the doors to Paloma Nails due to coronavirus, manicures weren’t the first thing on her mind.

“I was grappling with ‘How are we going to pay rent? What about our employees?' There was just so much on my mind that I wasn’t thinking about people that needed their nails done,” said Naderi.

It wasn’t until a suggestion from a friend that Naderi decided to start providing at-home manicure, pedicure and removal kits, the latter of which help with safely removing shellac, dip or gel.

“This is stuff that you won’t hurt yourself. It’s very simple,” said Naderi. “Honestly I think you’ll be better at it than you even think. It’s very intuitive. It’s totally doable.”

Naderi goes over a DIY nail tutorial with Houston Life co-host Courtney Zavala in the video above.
