Is Sharing Nail Polish Sanitary?
We’re taught from a young age to share. Sharing is caring! Sharing in life is what brings richness, closeness and belonging to our lives-most of the time.

Yet, we are all aware of boundaries to preserve our health and wellness and sometimes because of those boundaries, we learn when it’s best NOT to share.

At Pedicurian, our medical advisor, Dr. Harry G. Baldinger, D.P.M., a board-certified podiatrist advocates not sharing the following:
  • Nail implements
  • Towels
  • Pumice StonesBar Soap
  • Anything in a jar
  • Flip Flops
One of the questions we frequently get asked is: 

Is sharing nail polish sanitary?

As you know, when you go to a salon to get a manicure and pedicure, you’re sharing those bottles with many others.

The short answer to whether or not it’s sanitary is: no.

Although the chemical makeup of nail polish makes bacteria nearly impossible to survive, using salon polish is not risk-free. If the previous client has a fungal infection the bottle or brush could be contaminated.

So what’s the best solution?
We recommend taking your own polish to the salon and avoid the risks.

Our favorite nail polish is Remedy Nails Polish.
