Before I even get into everything, I have to say that I get that I am never happy with my manicures; it’s always one thing or another and that’s totally annoying if you are a friend of mine and have to listen to me complain. Never might a tad strong, but I would say 98% of the time I don’t like one thing or another about my manicure.
This morning I went to a nail salon that I used to go to when I lived in Aurora and that typically did a better job that most other places. So today I went for it mani/pedi combo to kick off spring break. I sat down in the chair and was excited to soak my feet in the hot water… but it was freezing cold. No biggie, that was an easy fix. Then a nice lady came and made sure I wanted a manicure as well, I nodded my head yes and figured that after my pedicure she’d start my manicure.
Before I knew it, she was grabbing my arms, making me shift my body so that she could do my manicure while I was getting my pedicure. By now, maybe some of you are rolling your eyes, but here’s the thing, I really go for the relaxation and there was nothing about being yanked around in the chair so that she could dig into my cuticles at a weird angle that was relaxing. In addition to that, she also cut 2 of my fingers a little because she was at a weird angle.
I 100% get that these annoyances are just that and that I’m being a little bratty about my mani/pedi experience, but truthfully, I just hate being disappointed when I’m trying to do something to take care of me. I digress. Everything turned out to be ok, I picked a pretty spring color and the massage portion of the mani/pedi made he annoyances worth it.
Having said all that, does anybody have a really great nail salon in Naperville they could recommend? I’m in desperate need! 🙂
