    Default Nail salons stink!

    Bleugh how do people get their nails done at those nail salons?! Every time I walk past I have to hold my breath And the nail technicians are wearing masks?

    For people who go there - do you get headaches??

    Those salon bars are dangerous!

    Where I went didn't have that strong smell, and she didn't wear masks,..

    Those bars tend to use illegal products... Which cause cancer

    I have to find the link - but it's an illegal chemical which is cheap and the Asian bars tend to use them

    I hate the smell. I walked past the one in Epping plaza, a lady was getting her nails done, two screaming babies in a pram behind her.

    The poor darlings must have been absolutely choking on that terrible stench.

    I cant stand the smell either - I LOVE getting pedicures done, but none of the chemicals are used for that process, it must just be the fake nails??? I try to book my pedi when there is no one getting their nails done .. blergh

    I hate the smell too! Never had a mani or pedi because of the smell and risk of cross contamination of skin infections and the like from poor cleaning of equipment.
