Nail Salon Claims

Advice and assistance from Cohen Cramer

 Nail salons, like so many areas of the beauty industry, are unregulated and, as the number of salons increases so does the number of claims for negligence. If you have suffered injury as a result of poor and negligent service while visiting a nail salon or spa and want to make a nail salon claim Cohen Cramer can help you claim the compensation you deserve.

Damage to your nails.


Common problems that can arise from a lack of skill and or poor hygiene when providing nail procedures are:

  • infections caused by equipment that has not been properly cleaned before and after use
  • badly fitted nails that lift from the nail so that bacterial growth can develop under the nail extension
  • cuts to the cuticles (the skin surrounding the nail) resulting in infection
  • allergic reactions to the chemicals/glue used due to a lack of patch testing

One of the main problems is that a lot of salons, as well as having poorly trained and unqualified staff, use acrylic products that contain methyl methacrylate (MMA).

MMA is a substance that has its origins in dental and bone work, but is wholly unsuitable for use in manicures and has been linked with a number of serious conditions. It is not in itself hazardous just unsuitable for false nails as it does not adhere well to the true nail and so the ‘technician’ is required to roughen up the natural nail to allow adherence resulting in damaged and thin nails.  Furthermore, the false nail made from MMA sets rock hard causing problems when removing.
