  1. Ok, I'm not usually a complete idiot. I've been having a very bad year, the worse part being my son is very sick and I will be living in NY till he recovers. So far I've not been very lucky, and I'm a Jersey girl who has been to the city lots, like just to take a yoga class. Somehow I've managed to get run over by a cab(not funny, seriously hurt, but do hope to laugh about someday). I get gel nails, very short French, at home mainly due to peeling nails. I pay $80 inc tip and they last 3 weeks. Yesterday I went to a nail salon recommend for being clean. I was going to have gels removed, girl talked me into fill and halfway thru said I needed all new ones, I said ok and figured they'd be a little more than home. I can hardly type how much I paid, and how many different forms of payment I used so DH wouldn't have a heart attack...$200. I think it was $180something and I didn't care about appearing cheap(tip)I wasn't going over $200. The place was a grade above the usual corner place, but was not NY posh. The price list was on the wall, behind counter, small. They also did my nails in a very funny way using gels, but then regular polish. I even told them I lived in the area, so they would think i was looking for new nail salon. There was nothing I could do but pay, I just hope they last! What's the most you've paid and what would you have done?
     
  2. I wonder if it's that new type of gels they used on you. There was a more expensive one I read about a while back but that's only me remembering something I've read before. I always do my own nails. I only got it done twice for someone else's weddings I was part of.
     
  3. I can only hope and that it lasts for a very long time!
