    I feel like like people should take the covid situation and think of it as a positive. All the money we spend on eating out can be saved and at $60.00 a pop for nails that adds up pretty quick also. Just take that money and throw it in a container everytime you would go out to eat and have your nails done. Just try it and see!! Can’t hurt
