When I called to book the appointment they informed me I would be charged $8 for tax and service and then when I went to pay it was $8.50. To not disclose that in the "rules of use" and then to charge even more is deceptive. Not a good way to get new customers. Why do a Groupon if you are just going to cheat the people who by the incentive to come to your place of business.

Please spend your money anywhere but here. I purchased the sparkle gel nails, which is valued at $70 yet received service which was worth less than a fraction of that. I did not receive a manicure, the technician did not shape or file my nails properly. She left my nails inside the UV lamp for far longer than necessary. The tools did not seem sanitized, the technician did not apply the polish properly. My nails are too thick, there is excess gel around them, not filed or shaped, and look like a 5 year old did them. The nails are poor quality and I felt that the technician did not care for my business. On top of this, there is an additional $9 fee for tax and gratuity which isn't mentioned before you purchase. I will never ever go back to this place.

I arrived early at 1:45pm for my 2pm appointment and while I was acknowledged the estician didn't start my nails until 2:15pm. I mentioned that I had another appointment downtown at 3:30pm; that's why I booked for the time I did. In turn I felt rushed and she didn't really do a great job. A couple of my nail are now lifting at the corners and look "grown out" already. Not pleased and would not recommend. The auto gratuity of $9 was a surprise as you tip on quality received; and no, she would not have got $9! I guess that protects them even when they don't do a nice job. There was no mention of this auto gratuity until I went to the till. I will not be going back!
