This tip caters more towards woman, but I guess it can be useful to men too. This tip involves the care one should use when getting a manicure/pedicure and what steps can and should be taken to avoid any possible problems that can lead to nasty infections.
First, always make sure that the manicurist uses new files on your nails (acrylic/regular nails) the first time you ever get your nails done and ask that you be allowed to keep those same files (stored in a plastic bag) so that you can bring them with you every time you get your nails done. This way you know where those files have been and that no one else has used them. Be sure to keep them sealed in the plastic bag at all times and don't let anyone else use them. Make sure you get them replaced at regular intervals, purchase new ones from your manicurist, perhaps she will even give you new ones.
My manicurist keeps all of her supplies separate for each customer. This includes files, orange sticks, and "nippers."
Now nippers are upwards of $35, so you are charged for those, and occasional sharpening. The rest, she supplies.
Since I am a doc, I started doing this in the seventies, before it was common. She picked up on it for her other customers, making them happy, too.
