This is a review for Shellac manicure and pedicure.... This was the BEST EVER manicure and pedicure I've ever had in NYC, or anywhere in the country. I travel for work and I can be pretty sure of this. Turns out my nail tech, Ilona (she's Hungarian) was Nicole Millers' personal and other Fashion District designers' service provider for over 20 years. Ilona was prompt, kind attentive and meticulous. My shellac lasted an entire 2 weeks and even then it took a while to remove. Unfortunately the clientele is very low class, ( a girl next to me complained for no good reason at all...just so that she would be offered free services and products) not the first time I witnessed this here and not the Bliss clientele that used to frequent this spa when it first openend. I find it very sad, that people look for a place to vent their frustration of the day and they pick a service provider who makes a living in this salon and who can't fight back.... I can tell you this much, if you don't like the services at this salon then really you don't know quality. It's just downhill from here. Think of the alternative...LOL. LADIES!! Let's remember that these service providers are human and let us not be rude and jeopardize a "sisters" lively hood. If you don't like the service, then don't tip, but in these hard times you don't want anyone to loose their job over a nail service. Why are women so mean to other women, let's support each other, Please. Women supporting Women!!
