Question 255:   What is buffered acetone and is it any better or safer?

Question 256:  I am confused.  I see the term “moisturize” used when oils are applied to skin and nails. I don’t see how oil can moisturize. Doesn’t the term mean to add water, not oil and how are they different from humectants?

Question 257: My nails are strong, healthy, and grow very long, until I use nail polish. Then they become brittle and start peeling, until all of the nail has grown out.  I have tried 5-free, 7-free and water based polish, and I have also tried different removers. But no matter what, my nails get ruined every time I use polish. Do you have any suggestions what I should do? My nails are strong, healthy, and grow very long, until I use nail polish.

Question 258: I know the Hyponychium and Onychodermal Band form a protective seal for the nail bed, but I wondered why there are two types of seals? How are these different form the Solehorn?

Question 259: I work in my own home-based salon in a small town where clients share a lot! I focus on my work and can’t always remember the details they share, and some clients feel disrespected when I don’t remember something personal.  I can’t keep up with everyone’s lives, but they want to chill and be heard.  What’s a nice way to explain this?  I work in my own home-based salon in a small town where clients share a lot!
