Simple Test To Identify The Two Way Mirror

How to determine if a mirror is 2 way or not: How many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror (in bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms) hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror i.e., they can see you, but you can't see them? There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors  and It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by just looking at it. 

Not to scare you, but to make sure that you aware. Many of the hotels cheat the customers this way. So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at? 

Here is a Simple Test you need to try:
Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a Genuine mirror. However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then beware, it is a two-way mirror! (there is someone seeing you from the other side). So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the "fingernail test." It doesn't cost you anything. It is simple to do This is a really good thing to do. 
The reason there is a gap on a real mirror, is because the silver is on the back of the mirror UNDER the glass. Whereas with a two-way mirror,the silver is on the surface. Keep it in mind! Make sure and check every time you enter in hotel rooms. May be someone is spying on you. or may be someone is making a film on you.
