THE ASIAN NAIL SALON FROM HELL
So I decided to take my acrylic overlays off of my nails today , and was surprised to find my normal salon closed for the day. So I take a trip to the "flat lands" and tried out a nail shop that I often pass by when going to the beauty supply store. Now, Im no uppity chick, but I was seated at the station by the window only to see the biggest spiderweb on earth. The shop was "slow" and one of the nail techs was happily picking the calluses off hand with a cuticle nipper. My mind was racing at this point, saying "get the hell outta here", but it was either have the worst looking hands on earth or go through with this dare of a nail visit. The towel that my hands were rested on had so many paint spots the shade of the rainbow that it almost looked like the towels intentional pattern. YUCK ! The woman who did my manicure was accommodating, by placing a heater near me because I was freezing but that didn't quite make up for lack of a sanitary working environment, and her tip reflected that. SMH .. Now lastly is the bathroom. Now I'm like most people, I typically don't use bathrooms at random places, and this was the prime example why. The bathroom door didn't have the ability to close completely. Imagine my ass in the air, squatting, aiming, holding the door closed ,while trying to hold my purse in the other hand. I take from this what has been the case in most instances, sometimes your forced to patron stores and businesses in more affluent areas to receive quality and excellent service, the hood has the hook up and the low low price, but at this point in my life, I will pay the additional $15-20 and be comfortable and CLEAN. When was the last time you really looked at the nail salon you go to ? Im going back to DIY forreal.
