Pedicure Safety Tips

Pedicure Infections 1You want walk away with more than pretty feet. I think you need go to a salon and practices proper hygiene.

You could walk away with an infection due to the use of unsanitary tools and contaminated foot baths if the pedicure salon doesn’t practice proper hygiene.

According research to the American Academy of Dermatology, pedicure health risks include fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot and nail fungus, and bacterial skin infections, a potentially serious antibiotic-resistant staph infection.

1 Before You Go

For starters pedicure instruments and footbaths are typically cleanest at the beginning of the day.

Ask the person you make your appointment with how much time there is between appointments. Pedicure disinfectants require at least 10 minutes to work.

Some other tips before you go:

– Don’t shave your legs. Hair removal can cause cuts or subtle abrasions that you don’t even notice on your feet. These tiny openings in the skin can allow bacteria and fungus to enter.
– Bring your own pedicure tools. Bacteria and fungus can easily move from one person to the next on pedicure utensils that haven’t been properly sterilized. Bringing your own tools will eliminate that risk

2 Before You Remove Your Shoes

If they look dirty, find another place to get a pedicure. Also, check out the bathroom. If the bathrooms are dirty, that’s a clue that the pedicure salon may not have high hygiene standards.

Footbaths should be drained and washed with disinfectant between customers and every night, and pedicure instruments should be soaked in disinfectant between customers.

3 While You Are There

Try not to get too comfortable during your pedicure.

Don’t let the pedicure technician cut your cuticles. Pushing back the cuticle can also damage it, increasing the risk of infection to your feet.
Be sure your feet are smoothed properly. A standard pedicure usually includes removal of dead skin on the feet, but this should be done with a pumice stone or foot file.

4. After You Leave

Be on guard for infections to your feet in the days and weeks following a pedicure. The appearance of a pimple or boil that’s red, swollen, or painful could be a sign of a bacterial staph infection. An itchy foot rash or yellowish toenail could signal a fungal infection.

Professional Pedicure Tools

Every salon needs to ensure that their clients are comfortable and yet still accessible to stylists and treating professionals. The right pedicure chair will help to enhance a client’s enjoyment of the procedure and still keep their feet within easy reach of the technician. This means it’s important to consider the material, the slant of the chair, and how easy it is to maneuver around.


Pedicurists use curettes to clean toenail beds. Use the curette gently to remove skin that’s been softened by a soaking bath. The curette is a small metal instrument with a scoop at one end used to remove cuticle skin and other debris from around the nail bed. Only use blunt-ended curettes in pedicures. Sharp-edged curettes can cut delicate skin around the nail bed and lead to infection.

Nail Files

Use abrasive files to smooth, shape and thin toenails as required. The best nail files are coarse or medium grit. Some pedicurists begin filing with a coarse grit tool, then switch to a medium grit tool for a smooth finish. You can find disposable and multi-use nail files made from a variety of materials including aluminum oxide and nickel. The most durable and easy-to-clean nail files are made from diamond chips.


Salon pedicures begin with toenail clipping. Don’t substitute large fingernail clippers for this task, as they won’t get the job done and may cause you to clip nails too short. To clip and trim toenails professionally, you need clippers specifically made for the task. Professional toenail clippers have precision grip handles and curved or straight blades. Ideally the clippers should have fine tips to make it easy to clip in small corners on curved nail beds.

Foot Files

Home use foot files usually come in one size, and may not work well if your soles are very dry or thickly callused. Professional foot files come in a variety of shapes and have different types of grit designed to remove any type of dead skin. Some foot files are made of disposable materials, and others can be disinfected for multiple uses. The best foot files come with quality handles and disposable grit surfaces that you can replace after each use.

The Decal Gal For Nail Art


You want make best nail, learn how to apply high-quality decals

Step 1. Prepare the client’s nails as you would for a fill. Remove old paint on nail, clean up the cuticles, and trim the free edge.

Step 2. Create the look you want under the decal with gel. Light colors work the best. (But you can always change the color after you top coat over the decal by painting gel around the decal and using a small brush to get in close around the design.)

Step 3. Cut the decal out as close to the design as possible, and room temperature water for about 20 seconds or use tweezers to place it in cool . Take it out and blot off the extra water on the towel, and place it flat on the paper towel. Begin lightly poking at the center of the image with the tweezers and it will release from the backing.

Step 4. Use tweezers to grab the released part on the edge and place it on the nail in the desired position. Push your finger down in the center of the decal and roll it off in all directions. This secures the decal and removes any leftover water. You can paint around the decal with gel to change the background color of the nail, or put more gel top coat around the design and push glitter into the gel. Finish with top coat. We have done, good luck.
