Re: Artificial nails & green discoloration
You may either want to change salons, make sure the salon you go to has their State Board Rules of Sanitation book for you to read (this is a law in most states), or purchase your own implements and files to take to the salon with you. After they use them on you, you will need to sanitize them when you get home. Be sure the files you purchase can be sanitized. Wash the files and implements with warm soapy water, rinse them really well, then completely immerse them in a sanitizing solution for a full 10 minutes. Remove them from the solution and wash with warm soapy water, rinse well, dry well and store in a sealed container until the next use. (This is the same steps they are supposed to do in the salon.) You can get approved sanitation solution at Sally Beauty Supply along with your files and implements.
