Possibly: Depending on how they clean their instruments and if they were used on someone with a fungus or not.

Yes: Most common nail disease from salons are infections from cut cuticles. The second most is fungal conditions causes by poor applications of nail tips. Dry, cracking nails result of acetone in nail polish remover.

Sanitation is key, you may want to bring your own instrument to lower your chances of cross infection from another customer.
