The past five years my nails have experienced acryllics, gels, a combination of acryllic and gel applications, white tips, natural tips, etc. I have been to cheap places in malls and expensive salons in Grand Forks, ND; Oceanside, CA; San Francisco, CA, and Minneapolis, MN. BY FAR the most beautiful my nails have ever looked and longest they have ever lasted was done by the artists at Hair Designers of Blaine.
Pros: quality, longevity, value
Cons: location, timeliness
