I read you should only get gel nails if your pregnant and that was my intention. Unfortunately they gave me acrylic nails then swiped on a thin layer of gel over it like I don't know the difference. Also the fumes were horribly strong and I had to step outside for air several times. If you want acrylic then this place is fine. BUT I hate that they are selling acrylic as gels, it's plain dishonest.
