done in a nail salon, understand that you do so at your own risk! It seems as though there is a nail salon on every corner in every city in the USA. If
the salon you are using does not replace or sanitize their instruments (files, nippers, brushes, etc.) in between customers, run, don’t walk for the
door. When trying out a new salon, arrive early for your appointment. If you are using a “walk in” shop, make certain you let someone go before
you. Sit or stand where you can “catch the action.” Pay close attention to how the nail tech prepares for the new client. Watch carefully to make
certain that he/she is skilled in the trade and does not accidentally break the skin especially if they haven’t sanitized their instruments. You’ve got a
lot at stake here. With the prevalence of aids, hepatitis and other diseases you can’t be too careful. If you see something that just doesn’t set well, get
up and leave. Try a more “upscale” shop next time.
