Last week I got the worst manicure ever. On Friday, I took my niece who was visiting New York for the week to get manicures. We went to a nail salon in a strip mall close to me. (If you live in New York’s Hudson Valley, NEVER go to Top Nails in the Wallkill Plaza.)
When we walked in, the lady seemed shocked that we were asking for regular manicures and not gel manicures. She even tried to talk us into a gel mani. When I explained we just wanted regular, I swear it was like they couldn’t get us out of there fast enough. My manicurist was rough, rushed and rude and I’ll never go back there again.
Obviously, I couldn’t wait to cover up this shit job. So I picked up these KISS Gel Fantasy Ready-To-Wear Nails at the drug store in “Rush Hour.” Although these are square shaped, I filed them down for a nice round look instead. Five minutes later, there’s no sign of my botched mani from Friday and my nails are instantly glamorous.
Have you ever had a horrible manicure experience? How did you handle it?
