For those who do your own nails, you should know that getting your nails done salon style can be time consuming. I remember someone telling me she takes about 45 minutes to do her own pedicure. So how is it possible for me to get mine done in 5 minutes?

The trick lies in not getting everything done at once.

Much has been reported about the hidden danger lurking for women getting pedicures performed in whirlpool foot baths in nail salons.  If the tub is not properly disinfected, users could end up getting Mycobacterium fortuitum bacterial infections which start out as boils and turn into oozing sores, often leaving disfiguring scars.   

Apart from such bacterial skin infections, users can also get fungal nail infections, viral infections and in the worst scenarios, even blood-borne viral diseases hepatitis B and C, possibly resulting in cancer of the liver.
