One of the things that I had to give up when I moved here in the US is the luxury of having in-home manicure and pedicure by my trusty manicurist cum pedicurist. At first, I religiously went to the nail salon nearby until I got tired of going every week, plus the issue of hygiene and sanitary conditions became a concern. The beauty of my in-home service then was whenever I had my nails done, the tools that were used were mine, and it was so convenient. So when I stopped going, I had to get a Rubis manicure set so I can do my nails personally. It may not be done as perfect as the way a professional nail technician does it, but it’s good enough.
How about you, do you go to a nail salon? Do you have any hygiene concerns at all? Or maybe it’s just me and my sick head and paranoia.
