Last night a friend came over to visit my husband who is scheduled for surgery tomorrow. She’s usually the bubbly personality type, so I was shocked when she hobbled into my living room and plopped down on my leather sofa.
While I sympathize with my friend’s medical condition, I wasn’t shocked by her news. We’ve all heard the horror stories. I won’t rehash the fact that nail salons are perfect breeding grounds for bacterial infections, nail fungus, plantar warts, and hepatitis. The tiny nicks that may result from a mani/pedicure, expose you and the salon implements to viruses and infections.
By following my handy tips you lessen your chances of contracting infections. A great place to buy a pedicure kit is the store Ultra. Or search the internet. You’ll need clippers, cuticle cutters, toe separators, nail brush, cuticle pushers and nippers, orange stick, pumice stone, file and a buffer.
Watch your step at the salon. After all, like Forest Gump says, you never know what you’re going to get.
