Sterilized Metal Implements
All tools used during your nail service have been sterilized in a hospital grade AUTOCLAVE. Implements are pre-cleaned with soap and water, dried, sealed into a sterilization envelope, and autoclaved. They remain sterile inside the envelope until your service begins. Autoclaving is the highest level of sterilization and is standard procedure at medical facilities in the U.S. (in accordance with AMA, FDA & EPA guidelines). This is the only process guaranteed to kill spores. Immersion disinfection, the standard practice used in salons, is not sufficient to completely eradicate all microbial life.
Highest Quality Professional Products
Part of our commitment to your health and safety includes utilizing only the best, professional-exclusive products on the market. Our Zoya polishes are vegan-friendly and “5-free” (they don’t contain formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor, or DHP). We use gel nail enhancement products only. This means NO odor, NO strong chemicals and NO electric files.
No UV Lamps Used
UV rays have been proven not to be harmful in nail applications, however, it remains a point of contention among medical professionals and makes health-conscious guests uncomfortable. For this reason we’ve chosen to use only products that cure with LED lamps.
No Whirlpool Pedicure Thrones
No matter how thoroughly cleaned, dangerous bacteria thrives in the plumbing and filters of whirlpool jets. Therefore, we have chosen ceramic pedicure basins that can be thoroughly cleaned between customers and are guaranteed not to harbor bacteria. At Paint, you can soak your toes worry-free with no “ick” factor. We also offer “waterless” pedicures, which are divine and come with an extended massage! If you’ve never experienced this hip new service, you’re in for a luxurious time!
Dual Hand Washing
Before beginning each service our nail technicians wash their hands and ask our guests to do the same. This reduces the spread of common germs. In addition our nail techs wear gloves during your nail service.
Additional Safety Steps
Disposable files, buffers and manicure sticks are used one time before being discarded – take them home with you if you like! Pumice stones are porous and harbor dead skin and bacteria. They are not used at Paint. Razors and graters are incredibly dangerous and against a nail technician’s scope of practice in Florida, so we don’t use those either. Instead, we use an alpha-hydroxy-acid based gel to gently soften dead skin and disposable foot files for your safety and protection.
