Well, when my cousin and I went there thinking it would be fun. We were pretty wrong. The lady that did me nails kept asking if I wanted to get gel polish, I declined- twice. Then she proceeded to do my nails. It was a bit awkward, and when she was massaging my hands, she pulled kind of hard. When I showed her what kind of design I had in mind, and she told me she could not do them on my short nails. I understand that not all things are possible, but the man that was doing my cousin's nails next to me started to laugh and tease the lady who was doing my nails. She shoved him playfully; which I find is very unprofessional. So after finally finding a design for my nails, a woman walks in and apparently had an appointment with the man who was doing my cousin's nails and said that he'd be done in 10 minutes. The finish of my nails were nice, looked a little rushed, but nice. The woman who did my nails didn't understand what I meant by a matte finish, so that was frustrating. I thought; Aren't they supposed to know what your talking about if you're a professional? My, cousin's nails? A disaster. He did a rush job and it was apparent that he had no idea what to do (she wanted to do gallaxy nails). Her nails were just painted a dark blue and had a sparkly polish on top- with no top coat. She and I did the top coat when we got home. We paid about (well, each of us was $12 each, added nails art was $8. so 12+8= 20 multiplied by two= $40, plus tip) $45. TO THEIR CREDIT, when we got home, our grandmother (who paid for the manicure) saw it and called and complained about it. . My cousin will me getting another manicure tomorrow for free. So, that's nice.
P.S: I don't mean to sound like a complainer, but this was the first time my cousin got a manicure, so I guess it upset me a little. And, I don't want to completely wreck their reputation, I just want to share our experience. I know there will be plenty of people who say this place is nice, but I wasn't very flattered, and I don't think we'll be back any time soon. ~Iri
