At a high-quality salon, the salon provides you with a nail file to take home. As a cheaper salon, you do not get any nail file. Why is this a red flag? Nail salons that do not provide nail files reuse the same nail file on multiple clients. Since you do not know how well staff members are sanitizing the nail files, you can get an infection from someone else’s nails! If you want to avoid infection, you have two choices. You can choose to seek out a pricier salon that does not reuse tools like nail files. Still want to go to your local nail salon? You can bring your own nail file to the salon for the manicurist to use on your nails.
