San Mateo County has partnered with certified salons to create a FREE Healthy Nail Salon Reward Program! Residents who join have an opportunity to enjoy a safer manicure and pedicure experience while getting rewarded for it with access to periodic paperless discounts that are redeemable from your smartphone or iPad.
If you like getting your nails done but find yourself avoiding salons because of the strong smell, we encourage you to subscribe and use your discount to visit a salon certified by the County’s Healthy Nail Salon Program.
Nail salons, owners, and technicians certified by the program have committed to improving indoor air quality by using safer products and practices in order to protect your health, and the health of employees.
Safer practices found in certified salons include turning on a ventilation unit when applying or removing artificial nails to filter out acrylic dust and fumes.
Safer products found in certified salons include only using acrylic powders and liquids that do not contain MMA (methyl – methacrylate), and nail polishes that do not contain toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate, more commonly known as the “toxic-trio.”
How Do I Join?*
It’s easy! To join from a smartphone, text the number 384-70 with the word “healthynails” and wait for a confirmation text.
