QOTW 35 : Have you ever visited a nail salon?

A friend of mine recently won a manicure at a nail salon and we were talking about nail salons in general. I've never been to a nail salon, I'm worried about infections and I find the whole thing disgusting, I can't trust anybody that they'll completely follow all the hygiene rules. Apart from that nothing lasts on my fingernails, so there's no point in paying for a manicure, and I can do my own toenails pretty well.

What about you? Have you ever been to a nail salon? Am I wrong about my fears? Please let me know about your experience :)
