“When I told the manager that was ridiculous that I have NEVER paid $31 for a plain acrylic fill (even with gel top coat) ANYWHERE.”
DO NOT EVER GO HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
OMG SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!! First of all I've been to fancy salons and I've been to salons in not so great areas (this one leans slightly towards the not so great area) and whether it's fancy or not, I have NEVER been treated so rudely like I have at this salon! EVERYONE in there is rude...EVEN THE OWNER/MANAGER!!!
Secondly, they do horrible work!!! I went in once because I was in the area and in a hurry and needed my nails done with a quickness and I was not impressed AAAAND to top it off...which p's me off the most....is that they're EXPENSIVE!!! I went in a second time today only because my regular nail salon and my backup salon were closed for Cesar Chavez day so I had no choice but to go here and OMG....I swear I didn't even want to PAY when I was done there. First of all the "Spa Pedicure" chair I sat in didn't even work. It was broken. The light said it was on but I didn't feel a dang thing.
Secondly, the girl who did my pedicure spent (I kid you not--I timed it) only 10 minutes on my feet--she pretty much slapped on the my polish...didn't bother to put a base coat on before she put the regular color on (and I HATE that! ALL good salons know to put a base coat on toe nails before putting the color on) but she insisted they don't do that there. Then she slapped on a top coat (barely) and pretty much hurried me to the drying chair. I looked at my toes and they weren't even pretty or glossy. They looked like I've had that paint job for a good week or two.
THEN it's time for me to get my nails filled. I went in with short white tip acrylics and wanted them to file my nails down even shorter and just fill it with plain acrylic, no color, no white tip...nothing, just PLAIN acrylic with a simply gel overcoat for that pretty, natural look. The girl (same gal that did my toes) kept insisting that my nails were TOO short and kept pushing me to put tips on. I DIDN'T WANT TIPS!!! Helloooo! I want short natural looking nails. So after that, she was totally rude with me talking about me to her coworkers in their language, pulling my fingers and being rough with me.
So she finishes and I go to pay and they tell me my total is $51!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes! I said FIFTY-ONE DOLLARS!!! They wanted to charge me $31 for the fill (a PLAIN acrylic fill w/absolutely no tips, no color, NOTHING!) and they tried to charge me $20 for that pathetic 10 minute half a** "Spa Pedicure"!!! I was LIVID!!! I pay $31 for a FULL NEW SET at other NICER salons!!!! And this was NOT a new full set! IT WAS A REGULAR, PLAIN FILL WITH NO COLOR TIPS WHATSOEVER!!! When I told the manager that was ridiculous that I have NEVER paid $31 for a plain acrylic fill (even with gel top coat) ANYWHERE....even in Otay Ranch where it's pricier, he said that because the girl had to file down my white tips to put all clear acrylic, THAT'S why it was so expensive!?? THEN he said my pedicure was 25 minutes long. He was absolutely lying!!! I LOOKED AT MY WATCH the second I sat down in that pedicure chair...I always do! I couldn't believe it!
I refused to pay the full bill because I thought it was SUCH a rip off! I wouldn't have minded paying that (which I typically and HAPPILY pay at my regular nail salon because they do excellent work and have great attitudes) but they had such horrible attitudes and did such a HORRIBLE job on both my hands AND feet...I told him I would pay $40! They tried to lock me in and threatened to call the police. The b**chy girl who did my nails even had the nerve to SHOVE me!!! YES SHE SHOVED ME!!! I landed up throwing an additional $10 bill at them for the service only after vowing to NEVER set foot in that place again and to tell everyone my experience. I'm also reporting them to the Bettr Biz Bur (this site won't let me type it the correct way, but I'm reporting them to THAT place)!!!! DO NOT EVER GO HERE!!!!
