Recently, I went to get a pedicure with a girlfriend of mine and she thought it was really strange that I bring my own tools when I get my pedicure/manicure done. A few years back, I used to regularly go to a pedicure/manicure place around my house. Everything looked pretty clean and legit. I became very friendly with my pedicure girl, and she whispered to me one day right before beginning my pedicure, " The autoclave here does not work, and the owner hasn't fixed it." I was in shock. I was also incredibly scared after that. (I'm a bit of a hypochondriac.) Ever since then, I not only bring my own tools, but I also ask the people right before they do my pedicure to please wash the pedicure bin in front of me. (I did that when I was with my girlfriend and she was so embarrassed.) I've seen many pedicurist not wash the bin after someone gets out, then take another client, that's a breeding ground for fungus,and foot infections. yuke!
So I'm curious, do you bring your own pedicure/manicure tools when you get your nails done?
Are you a hypchondriac like me?
