RUDE, HORRIBLE POLISH JOB

  • No, I would not go back!

I really feel I need to warn others of this establishment! I got the sea salt pedicure and polish change on my hands. This Asian guy did it and the massage sucked. Very light. When he went to do the polish, his hands were so shaky he could have had Parkinson's! He got polish all over my toes. Then this ghetto woman sat next to me and wanted my color. So her technician, I'm assuming, told my guy she needed that color after him in another language, and just sat there watching him. He started rushing my hands and his hands shook even more and did a HORRIBLE job!!! The polish was uneven and swirling under the thick top coat! I told someone I wanted it all redone and I had to wait 45 mins! When a woman did it, it wasn't much better. She didn't bother redoing my toes, just cleaned around the edges. I said I didn't want to pay for my hands for the inconvenience, but they charged me on all of it anyway. I didn't bother tipping the guy who started it, and barely tipped the woman. The manager did not bother to apologize to me, just looked at me. I said I wanted to go and the woman put on some kind of oil and put my shoes on. I said is it OK? She said the oil dries it immediately and that it was ok to wear my shoes. Well, when I took my shoes off, the polish was completely messed up! So in conclusion, I came out looking worse than when I went in and $60 +tip less. Bad hygiene, awful service, and ghetto customers.
