When working with fondant, you really should not have long nails unless you are an expert at not making any marks with them. You could (and should) wear latex gloves, that may help. I would smooth any marks with the pad of my fingers or a fondant smoother.

I keep my nails short but, if the indentations aren't too deep, rubbing the area lightly with shortening will smooth it out.
