Great Service! – Purchased a Groupon for pedicure and shellac nails. I had never been to the place before, but loved it. People were extremely nice and great job on the pedicure. I had never had shellac nails before but Im hooked and I'll be back.
I can't believe the lack of skill – My friend and I went to this salon for a mani/pedi. Once you walk in the door, it smells like mildew/mold/wet basement. I should have walked out the door then. First was the pedicures.
The parafin wax pedicure wasn't so bad. The owner spent a good amount of time and did an OK job at painting the toes.
The manicure was horrendous. It was supposed to be a shellac manicure. There was almost no cuticle work. Since she did not have white polish for a french manicure, I asked for black tips. She did one coat and it looked terrible, like a child had painted it. She blamed my nails and said it looked bad because they were different lengths. I've never had that problem before...I have natural nails and have never had that problem before. She asked if I wanted to continue with that or go with a solid coat. I asked for a solid coat, figuring that couldn't me ruined too easily.
She started to remove the black-tipped coat, but only did half way, so the base coat bubbled and began to chip off. She started to paint the solid coat over the 12/ on-1/2 off black-tipped nails and told me it would be fine. She got done with one hand and it looked awful. I asked her to remove it all and while doing so, she very politely blamed me for not being able to make up my mind between colors. She told me I could come back the next day and get them repainted and she'd throw in an eyebrow wax for free.
I may have gone back if she had removed all of the shellacing from my nails. When I left, they were very rough and cracking. I ran to my usual salon and got them redone.
Moral of this-never go here for nails!
Horrible service – We booked this salon for my friends bachelorette party, it was supposed to be a wonderful experience! However, it was a joke. Staff was nice, but they def. didn't have the skills to do nails at all. I am suprised they stay in business. Anyways, my nails looked like a child painted them and I had to redo them when I got home. I was in complete shock and didn't say much, I should have tried to get all of our money back. Don't go there...save your money!
Best Airbrush Makeup – My makeup looked awesome! I had a trial done for my wedding. Looked awesome and cant wait to have them do it again for my wedding! I took a picture in of what I wanted and they were able to give me the look I was wanting.
Bad pedicure job – Really horrible job. The polish didn't cover the entire nail, had smudges all around the nail beds. The time was not taken to remove all the tags and no nail filing done. So at the end, really botched nails, bad nail shapes and nails not covered w/ polish on the sides or the the tip of the nails.
I can do a better job and save 27 dollars. I ended up having to go else where and spend more money to re-do the work. Very disappointed.
Worst Experience Ever – This place is horrible. They fried my good friend's hair and won't even consider refunding her money.... They insisted on trying to fix it and after seeing what they did to her hair, I can't blame her for not letting them touch it again. The owner had no problem taking her $200, but could care less how horrible her hair turned out. Do not trust them
DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!!!!!!
