Non-Essentail Nail Tech is Busy Being Non-Essential



The Art of Nailz by Maggie is currently closed!
I am taking the stay-at-home order to slow the spread of COVID-19 down seriously. 
I will not be offering services during this time.



And here's the long-winded, slightly manic rant that I know you all expect:

First off-- I never wanted to be an  "essential" worker. I've always said that I love that no one's going to die if I miss a day of work.

I never thought I'd be in a situation where someone might die if I DON'T miss a day of work!

I love that over the years, I have had so many wonderful, loyal clients who feel that I am essential to them but let's face it-- if the worst thing that happens in all this is that you need a new set the next time you see me, we're gonna call that a win.

You are not going to die if you don't get your nails done. However, we are currently dealing with a situation where you might die if you do get them done.

Or you might kill your nail lady.

Or you might kill your nail lady's mom.

Or your nail lady might have forgotton to wipe down the gas pump when she filled up on her way into town and then I probably touched my face before I got around to washing my hands.

The point is-- the world does not need me right now.

I know you want me, but let's not get confused.

I am busy chillin, staying healthy, and helping others stay healthy too.

No. I won't be doing nails on the sly at my home or yours.

I've considered the risks all along the way and continue to re-evaluate my personal opinions on a daily basis.

At this time, the risks to myself, my clients, my loved ones, and my community are just too great for me to justify.





OK. That wasn't very long or manic or even terribly rant-y. That's the advantage of having backspace and delete buttons.

Believe me-- I've gone on 30 different rants and shouted several curse words while calling nearly everyone on the planet a variety of creatively insulting names and declaring myself the ultimate authority on all things concerning wisdom and truth.

I know my clients, colleagues, and personal friends are deeply saddened by the edits.

As much as I miss my glitter and rhinstones, it should surprise no one who knows me well that the part of social distancing that is most challenging for me is the lack of a captive audience.

I miss you guys!
