I am new here from Philadelphia and have gone to T and T regularly this past year. Each time I find a good manicurist at Tand T, she disappears and moves on to somewhere. The turn-over is so quick and all the good ones leave!
Today is my last time in that place. I should have walked out when I realized the air-conditioning was not on, and it was 93degrees outside. ... I refused wax service and sat on a chair for a pedicure. My new manicurist argued with me after I requested that she file my toenails instead and not cut them on the sides. Cutting nails on the sides, especially the toenails, encourage ingrown nails.
The same person proceeded to do my hands ending up with uneven pink and white french tips on all digits. (Whew, and I was planning to have her do my bikini wax!)
She offered to redo them but she trimmed my fingernails to the flesh that she cannot make the fat french tips match the thinner ones without taking the tips of my fingers off.She blamed it all on the sweltering temperature inside the salon...
There was much discussion around the room in their native dialect, then, suddenly I was being moved to the owner's booth for damage control. The owner, Annie, realizing that my nails were beyond simple repair, suggested that I grow them back (No kidding, Sherlock!) and my next service is for free.
To top the afternoon, I was charged the full $65.00. I tried to stay calm from the beginning but I just had to say, "I do not believe that you are charging me for this. You will not see me here again."
...Oh, and did I tell you that the owner accidentally sprayed nail-buffing cream from her machine on my favorite Talbots shirt?...
