The location is cute & clean but this was probably one of the most awkward experiences I’ve ever had... I didn’t feel very welcome or wanted. I get it’s a groupon but it wasn’t worth $15 😂 my nails are half painted and I had to wait in my car for them to dry. I honestly could’ve cleaned up, shaped up and painted my nails myself. I’m so disappointed 😔
Melanin did a great job on my ill-kept nails. Will definitely think about a second visit.
She does a great job with nail shape as well as a fantastic leg massage. Those were the only highlights for me with this Groupon purchase.
My nails broke both times within 24 hours of application of my gel polish. The application was so thin, it looked like enamel instead of gel. She couldn't get me back in for at least a week, so I had to go to another salon to have it repaired ($$). After Groupon would not refund me for a bad experience, I brought it to the manicurist's attention to see if we could work it out for the second and third applications. I was up-charged ($10!) for one more coat of polish the second time after I asked for it as it looked as thin as the first time. This is after we already had an understanding that it was too thin the first time.
Each session was not a full manicure experience, but rather a "polish change" (which I pay $15 for at my normal salon). After the second experience, I just asked if I could substitute a pedicure for my third session; she agreed, but it cost me an additional $27 after the pedicure was completed. I didn't save money with this Groupon, nor did I receive a superior experience than what I was used to. I ended up spending about $90 ($110 if you count having to go to a secondary salon for a fix) total for what would have cost me $85 at another salon; and it would have lasted.
Melanie did a very awesome job on my gel nails.Never had them done before. But I asked questions about the gel nails and she answered all.she really knows her stuff. I highly recommend her to friends and relatives. I will be coming back again.
