Usually it’s not an std. It’s normally caused by unhygienic pedicure or manicure tools. Some times you can get it from a manicure or pedicure if they poke your nails too harshly with their tools.
I got a nail fungus from a pedicure once and it took me a couple of months to get rid of it.
On the other hand there is some thing called herpes whitlow which is not an std. I don’t believe it’s related to nail fungus but it can cause some blisters to break out on the nail and fingers. This is very rare to have so I woudln’t worry about getting herpes whitlow.
