This was the worst nail experience of my life. I actually walked into Nail Zone because i was in close proximity to the gym where I had just worked out. When I walked in, three employees were sitting on the couch talking to each other. They did not even say hello.
So, I asked if I could get a refill and how much. They said $17. I was stunned by this low price- and asked if they were sure and showed them my nails (I needed two colors done for my refill).
As I sat down I casually asked if it had been busy. The man replies sharply, ""YES!"" in a very defensive manner. Then he asked if I was from around here. I replied I was and just commented that I hadn't been to their nail salon before. He wasn't finished. He asked if I was from Germany. He said anyone who was local would know this is the Galleria area and of course they're busy. He continues to go on and on and says it's always busy and continues to explain how busy it is.
I was starting to get irritated.
My nails were grown out a little and he asked if I wanted them to be cut. I replied yes. He immediately proceeds to shorten them with the dremmel. When I asked him why he was shortening them that way , he said ""everyone do different.""
So when he saw my nails he then said, two color, we do for 30 dollars. I looked at him and said I thought you said 17? Well, then they ""compromised"" and charged 28. I didn't come into a nail salon to bargain for nails. I just wanted to get my nails done, in an hour, be treated decently and left relatively happy.
Well then, he began painting the white. It couldn't have been thicker or any more uneven. It looked terrible.
When I said something, another lady came to his rescue and replied- ""he do by hand! Not perfect!""
It continued to get worse. When I realized this was not a good nail job, I said I didn't care for the thickness of the pink.
They replied, ""fine! We cut them off. You go somewhere else.""
I was shamed into staying there although I should have left.
After, get this, an hour and 45 minutes, they were finally done.
That is way too long for a two-color refill.
The man continued to talk about how busy they were. I told him to stop and that his comments were enough.
Then he remarked he didn't speak English good like black people and said something about how he's not the president and didn't get votes like Obama.
I had NO idea where he was going with this.
So after finishing, I paid and left.
It is now 2 days later and my nails are SO incredibly thick. The nails are already peeling up and the cuticle from my nail is sore from where he rubbed it with the dremmel.
I was particularly upset because I just got engaged and will be returning to school soon (I'm a teacher) and when we have our first faculty meeting, they're going to want to see my hands.
So, what they'll see is a beautiful ring and a thick pair of nails that I can't wait to grow out.
Please don't go to this place if you know what's good for your beautiful hands. They will find a way to make them ugly.
