Green spots on nails
I had false nails on for about a week, and when I removed them, I noticed little green spots on my nails. Does this mean I have an infection etc.

It could be bacterial growth due to water that came in under the nail - nail salons like Dreamnails have an antiseptic solution (thymol)available one can paint on to prevent/treat infection.
