I think people should behave pleasently to each other because it is the "right" way to be.... Not because they don't want to burn in hell. Mutual respect is the key. If you wouldn't want it to happen to you, your family or you loved ones... Don't do it to somebody else! Seems simple to me.
I don't like YSL Touché Éclat for under eyes either. If it wasn't a YSL product I would use it (I dislike their ethics) for highlighting only. In my opinion, it's too shimmery for concealing under eyes and blemishes.
I'm mainly doing reds (Hollywood, Wildfire, Red Baroness, Decadence etc) with either Tinsel Toast or Gold VIP over the top!
I've had a few clients who have decided on Midnight Swim with a silver glitter fade on the ring finger as their Christmas nails, after seeing it on me!

Personally, I'd do a test nail and leave it 72hrs. Make sure to note on your consultation card that she's allergic to something in nail polish and that you have done a test nail. Get her to sign it. :)
I usually say, "While the products and equipment were a large investment on my part, the cost is largely irrelevant. Clients pay for my time, my training, my experience, my expertise... Not the product."
Not sure I follow... To avoid contact with the client's skin and/or nail, I take the brush straight out. There will be a little bulb of oil and simply touch the bulb to the nail, without touching the brush to the nail.
Think about how much sterilisation goes on in hospitals, and a few grand is hardly a lot of money for a hospital anyway. Think about how much liquid they would go through in a year! It would cost far more to keep buying a product like Milton...
