“For pumice stones or emery boards, if you are not sure of the cleanliness of the salon, you should really bring your own or ask them to use a disposable one that they open in front of you,” Katta said. “If they are using a reusable metal file, you need to make sure it is properly sterilized in an autoclave. If it is not properly sterilized, you can pass viruses or bacteria from one person to another.”

On May 7, 2015, The New York Times journalist Sarah Maslin Nir broke the two-part story titled "The Price of Nice Nails" and "Perfect Nails, Poisoned Workers" about abuses in New York salons related to ill-treatment of workers and associated health risks. As a result, on May 11, 2015, New York governor Andrew Cuomo took immediate measures announcing a Multi-Agency Enforcement Task Force to tackle the abuse in the nail salon industry.[10]

Not everyone sees the point of sitting in a salon and devoting an hour or so to your nails. Manicures don't last forever; that's why the salon can count on you coming back and spending more money. Your manicure will start chipping in three days if you're hard on your hands -- washing them frequently, working with them and not wearing gloves when doing dishes. For the average person, though, a manicure lasts a solid week. You may even be able to stretch it into two weeks by adding a clear top coat every other day.
I have used this particular color polish before but couldn't find this locally. My purchase is the same polish I've used for over a year. One coat covers good , but still use two for best coverage and durability. Then finish with a top coat of your favorite brand and it lasts over a week, depending how many times your hands are in soapy water with out gloves. The consistency is very fluid, not slow moving like an older bottle.

You might think bare toenails are ugly, but nails need to breathe and have moisture, and polish acts as a barrier. So skip the nail polish for a week or longer each month and enjoy the low-maintenance look. It's a good idea to remove your nail polish if you can't fix it as soon as it chips. Your toenails are vulnerable to damage in the spots where polish is missing. If by some miracle your polish lasts two weeks, go ahead and change it anyway.

“If your skin barrier is impaired in any way, it becomes a portal for infection,” Katta said. “In a normal setting, your skin does really well to protect you from bacteria, from fungus, from viruses. But, any time you have a breakdown of that skin barrier, it makes it more easy for these infectious organisms to get through your skin barrier and cause an infection.”
"I would never recommend doing either of these treatments as a DIY at home because for both treatments, there are chemical products that can harm skin or the nail plate if not properly applied. Even professional grade products and products marketed for at-home use contain harming chemicals, so it's just safer to go to a salon for both gel and dip treatments."
Every woman knows how painful it is to accidentally smudge your eyeliner after finally perfecting your cat eye, spill droplets of coffee on a light t-shirt, and worst of them all, walk around with chipped nail polish. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars each month on gel manicures to avoid chipped nails but as a result, my love affair with gel manicures left me with cracked, fragile nails.
If you want a long-lasting manicure without the commitment (or potential damage) of acrylic nails, a gel manicure is a great option. All the steps of a basic manicure are taken, except a special polish that requires curing under a UV light is also applied. This lasts days longer than the polish used for a basic manicure, and is less prone to chipping.
