Number One Nails
I wanted to remove the shellac and get a regular color. Instead of soaking my nails in aceton like 100% of the other salons do, the mister there (one of the two there) put a measley amount of acetone on a piece of cotton and wrapped it in foil for each nail for about a minute. Then he took a scraper tool and GOUGED my natural nails trying to get the shellac off. I told him about that, he said "don't worry". Then, I showed him an example of my two thumbnails that I filed before hand to show him what I wanted the other nails to put cut down to...he filed them all uneven then had to keep filing down because he kept messing up. I ended up stopping the process, showing him my gouges, showing him the unevenness and how he ruined my nails. He charge me $10....I paid.
Bottom line: If they can't afford to use acetone in a bowl to remove the shellac, they shouldn't be in business. Especially if one of them can't file or remove shellac worth a crap.
