Here's the deal. I'm not really a nail person. On a whim, I decided to get acrylics a while back, and was perfectly fine to let them grow out on their own (despite the fact that it looked pretty stupid). Then I heard that I got a very important job interview and (since I truly despised my job at the time) decided that I couldn't let the trashy half-grown out nails be the reason that I didn't get the position. So I was desperate.
This is where Fantasy Nails comes in. They were highly recommended by a friend and the woman who tended to me was very nice at first. Anyway, I got a full set of nail done by this lady for the job interview - and when I got home, I found that I can not type as fast and accurate on the computer, it was heavy,and I just feel weird. So, I went back over there the next morning to take the nail off & simply get a manicure. The same lady assist me- she took me into her station, She pulled out another fake nail from her drawer and said that she was going to get mine off. Great, I thought.
Then she proceeded to introduce me to her method of fake nail removal, which involved running the other nail in between my real and fake nails. I don't know if you are picturing this accurately, but it hurt -- it hurt a lot. A tear came to my eye. After a few more nails and excrutiating pain, I asked if we could talk about this. Maybe if there was soaking of some sort? I am a nail novice, by admission, but it just didn't seem right. The woman smiled, nodded, and laughed at me. I felt we weren't connecting.
Because it was close to closing and I was in a bind, I was forced to endure the entire 10 nails. They ached after she was done and she painted them hastily. My nails looked messy!
I called my friend,(the one that told me about the place) and told her what happened- she told me that she would go with me over there after work to make sure that my nails are done properly. I asked her if she would take me somewhere else -because I was not comfortable going back to Fantasy. So we went to this other salon, I got another set of nails put on- it was nothing like the one I got, very natural and comfortable!
If you are thinking of going for Fantasy-DON"T
