China Glaze, My Secret Peri-Wink-Le was going to be the base of my next nail art mani, but...
1 week into my last fill - Bam! 3 nails gone- just like that! It's a rarity that I break one nail, but 3? Never!
A couple of months ago, my nail tech, My, did a substantial fill (I was 1 week late for it) that she wasn't happy with. I believe it was the acetone, because she kept bringing it to her nose and smelling it. She told me that if I had any problems with grittiness or cracking, to come in right away, and she would fix it. The next fill after that, she ground away the previous fill with the alleged bad acetone.
I figured all was well, until these 3 breaks.
I am not happy. In fact, I am madder than a hornet.
These breaks are the last straw, and I'll tell you why.
For the last 3 months, I have been charged different prices for my fills- each going up 2 more dollars. $6 increase in 3 months? come on! I have been an excellent customer. I tip very, very well...$20 tip for a $16 fill is a crazy good tip!
I was also charged "extra" when My removed that bad fill, when I think there should *not* have been a charge at all.
And now these 3 breaks.
Today, I am going to try another salon. I'm also going to be less generous with my tips.
Hi Readers! Although most know my net presence as ainos2, my real name is Lisa & I'm 48. I love make-up, nail polish, nail art and edgy fashion. Over the years I have mastered my sense of personal style. Never old, certainly not boring, I mix glamor, goth, playfulness, and sexiness for a bold and classy look. I like being different and strive to be original in everything I do.
I'm a corset maker, working as a restaurant manager, who found instant gratification from a creative outlet that takes less time. Nail art!
