Maybe sounds like a stupid question to some at first, lol
But here to what I mean, there was a time when I wanted to get mine done and had them done for a couple of months until I got tired of it, also money wise.
Then maybe 6 months after I hadnt get mine done anymore I read an article in a magazine about getting your nails done and what you should be aware of. For instance you should ask them/make sure that they sterilize the tool they use on your after every costumer. Well if you ask they probably tell you yes we do it, even if they dont, I thought, right? How could you make sure. Once when she made my nails, she poke me in my finger and I was bleeding a bit. What she actually did with the "tools" she was using on me I dont know cause when she was done she sent me over to wash my hands and when I came back the table was clean and she would get the rest of the work done. I didnt even thing about that until I read the article.
Other that that I read that they have to really clean the tub where the wash your feed for a pedicure, it said that for instance if the first customer has a fungus and its not sanitized correctly,( it was mentioned that most placed just whip it down quickly) basically everyone afterwards could caught that fungus or any other kind of infection all you need is a little tiny crack in the skin!
So all that totally freaked me out about ever getting my nails done. Anyone with me on this or do I overreact now? What are your opinions on this? How can you make sure a place is "safe". Watch how they clean up after a customer??

You do need to be careful that the place you are going to is doing things so they don't pass infections along. I don't have mine done because I have allergies and will react to the lanolin in nail products. No good having nice nail and hives from having them done.
