Ok, so my father in law passed away suddenly and we drove up from Kansas City on the fly. My nails were pretty gross and I wanted a manicure before the visitation and funeral. I found this little place in Ankeny and they got me right in. I was greeted right away and I would say they were friendly. When I first sat down I became VERY aware of nail dust and debris all around my station. I'm not sure why they just can't take the time to wipe things down a bit. Then she used a wash cloth for me to lay my hands on that looked scetchy. The bowl she used to soak my hands was NOT CLEAN and she used cold water. They were getting busy and she wiped the bowl out with a wrag when finished and laid it on the FLOOR. Later, she picked the bowl up and used it on the teenager next me, it was visibly solied on the outside. The files were used and then she used them on me, which normally I wouldn't freak out about except for the thilth I had already noticed. She gave me a quick 2 min massage which was weird, I have never had a neck and shoulder massage with a manicure, but it was nice. I noticed her going from customer to customer doing their nails without even sanitizing her hands in between. I wish they would have paid a little more attention to cleaning the enviornment and using some general handwashing. I left with the willies.
