Ok y'all, 90% of the time I do my own manicures or nail polish changes. I don't have the time to schedule these appointments as often as I would like, and sometimes I am antisocial. So, when I do go it is usually because 1) I feel like I need some pampering 2) I am having a nail emergency 3) The nail polish is difficult to remove.
Today, numbero dos and tres was the issue, see my nail files post here. Glitter = difficult and I didn't feel like dealing with it & my nails were looking horrid.
The company I work for encourages everyone to take a 1hr lunch break daily. Plenty of time for a color change right?
So strange, right? I always look at a guy a little cross eyed when they come out of a nail salon... BUT this one also offered waxes, facials, and massages. So, I can respect a guy that wants to keep his looks up. But... to tell me I can't get a nail polish change... and there were no other clients in there?!?! I figured I just got there before the lunch crowd came in. Won't be stopping in there again.
Lucky for me I am surrounded by shopping centers, next one over...
I walked in VO nails, the ladies were sitting around chatting and seemed friendly. I asked for a nail polish change, they asked for me to select my color and then I sat in the chair. Normal, right? The manicurist started taking off the nail polish from one of my fingers then said "oh, it messed up my nail polish..." um, really? i've gone to my fair share of salons from high end to in the dumps you typically don't wear nail polish because. this.will.happen. then "your nail polish is difficult to take off, what is this? glitter?" and she hands me a cotton ball and the nail polish remover as she takes off her own nail polish.
I was dumbfounded and thought for a second, "ok, I'll take off my own nail polish" ... but then I came back to reality, this is her job to do, not mine! This is why I am paying her. I politely told her "I'm sorry, I'm going to go, but thank you." She apologized and offered to do it, but I was already dissatisfied. Will not be stopping at this place again either.
Talk about bad luck! So I walked into CVS with one nail polish-less nail and others with cotton ball strings on them to buy myself some remover and polish. Nail walk of shame, for sure! 10 minutes later polish was off and one layer of nail polish was on.
Am I alone here with these bad experiences?
