Don't take nail care for granted! It not only affects your style, but your health as well! Here are signs that you should choose another nail salon

Getting manicures and pedicures are two of the most relaxing ‘me-time’ activities for busy mums. But this pampering experience poses certain risks.

Nail care does not only impact your style, it also greatly affects health and hygiene.

When you step into a new nail salon for the first time, keep these salon no-nos in mind to avoid infection, damaged nails and skin.

1. No Licenses on The Walls

Look around for licenses displayed on the nail salon’s walls. If you don’t see any, don’t be alarmed. Some establishments place these in the interior part of the salon. But, if you can’t find any of these, it should be a warning sign that the technicians may not be properly trained. Hygiene and safety issues need to be considered as well.

If you do spot licenses, remember to make sure that they are updated and renewed.

2. Unpleasant Smells

The strong odour of acrylic and nail products isn’t normal. It’s a sure sign that the place doesn’t have a good ventilation system.

Without a proper flow of oxygen into the salon, in may cause patrons to inhale nail product fumes that may cause headaches, dizziness, or nausea.
