This is so scary and sad. A 22-year-old Brazilian woman was diagnosed with advanced HIV after using shared manicure equipment at a nail salon [via Daily Mail].
Upon diagnosis, researchers found that the woman, who is a manicurist, had been sharing nail tools with her HIV-positive cousin who also worked at the salon. She had not had unprotected sex or used shared needles otherwise.

The doctors who diagnosed her believe that contracting HIV through manicures is a “very rare event,” and that they don’t believe this will be a major new form of transmission.
