This is why I no longer go to a nail salon.

This is why I do my nails and spas myself! :)

So scary what can happen when you think you're relaxing and enjoying a pampering treat! I love my pedicures, but maybe it's time to reconsider!

After reading this, I no longer feel bad that I can't afford salon mani-pedis and have been learning to do my own at home!

Okay, i am a licensed nail tech, and some of this is paranoia talk. Tho, it does have some truth behind it, some of these cases are very rare. We DO know the difference between disinfecting and sterilizing, dont insult out intelligence. We have to go through extensive schooling on disease control. In Texas it is the law to use an autoclave. Most nail techs dont use polish remover to dilute the polish. There are special products out there that are made for thinning the polish after it has been overexposed to the air, this doesnt affect the quality. But i wouldnt put it past some people to just throw some remover in there. Dont just. Go to any salon, you never know if they are following protocol, like this article states. I would suggest going to a high end spa, you will be paying more, but you will be paying for quality and better service. I know the one i Work at has extensive cleaning protocol. We dont care if your legs are hairy =) If your are going to a reputable spa, we dont just refill our product bottle, though, i do know some salons that do this.

of course they are talking about you.... and saying things like " i hope this one tips better than my last client."

That was pretty nasty to read!!! This is good information and this makes me weary of going to a salon to get my summer pedicure. Might as well do it myself.
