You go to your salon for a nice and relaxing beauty treatment, but did you know your beauty salon may be making you sick?

    I am irate at the lies being spewed out by our own industry leaders! How do we expect clients to feel safe if we cannot even tell them the truth? UV nail lights DO NOT CAUSE skin cancer. They are not the same intensity as the sun, or a tanning bed. Barbicide should be mixed properly and dark blue is not correct. And it comes in green as well for crying out loud. And yes tools should be properly disinfected. But if you scare clients, or give them false information, they will not be able to trust what any of us say. How pathetic are you Tabatha? And Dr. Oz! Get your facts first.

    Seriously, guys, you need to get your facts straight. State Board approved disinfectants can be blue, green or even clear. And when mixed properly, they’re not necessarily “dark blue”. UV lights do NOT CAUSE skin cancer! And spa chairs, if cleaned properly via State Board Reg’s, do not “back-flow dirty water” back into the spa-tub, when they drain the “dirty used water” via the pumps in the spa chair, the pumps not only completely drain the spa-tub, but the water in the PIPES as well. I can’t believe such an icon as Tabatha would sully the name of all us hard-working, LICENSED, and LEGAL, Rule-following Nail Techs out there. For shame, Tabatha!! For shame….it’s the fricking “Chop Shops” that are dirty, re-using disposable items and not cleaning their tools…the high-end Shops don’t do these types of “bad” things: You get what you pay for obvioulsy…and let me be perfectly clear: NOT ALL SHOPS DO THESE “BAD-WRONG THINGS” SO PLEASE STOP GENERALIZING LIKE THIS!!

    *obviously. And, btw, let me also add that I’ll never watch another “Tabatha Takes Over” epi again. I was a fan, now I’m NOT.
