? for the girls.........

I went to this new nail bar today near my home. I havn't had my nails done for ages, so I thought that I would treat myself.

I asked for a french manicure and they were like, "Okay. No problem."

They did my nails without doing the white tips at the end. I was like "Er.... Hello?? Where's the white tip?"

"Oh. That's extra!!" ;P ;P

Is it just me or isn't the white tip part of the nails, like one of the most important part of it?? I paid the $4 extra for white tips as they needed to be done, but I was just wondering what you other girls thought about it.

Needless to say, I shan't be going back there again.

Louise

Louise,

Most of the time around here I find salons trying to shirk me on the "overlay" color. They'll do the tips but then don't want to cover the entire nail with a "sheer" color. My solution to this problem is to bring my own OPI French Manicure Kit with me when I go in and make them use MY polish for the job.

Louise, I just got one done today, the white tips are ALWAYS included. That's just WEIRD. I also never get charged for the overlay color, it's just included.
