I was in town this past weekend and had about an hour to spare. So I called in no problem, this was the first nail salon that came up in the area, so was my first choice and had decent reviews. All I was wanting was a polish change on my acrylic nails using shellac. First off, there wasn't many choices for colors, which was fine instead of choosing a shellac due to lack of choices, I chose a vinyl luxe color that is said to last 7 days.
So we continued with the service, I have had acrylic nails for quite some time and I had never had the polish removed with nail polish remover using cotton and foil over my nails. It is usually removed with the e-file. But I went ahead and had it done, thinking they knew what they were doing my nail tech even asked manager because I did give her my concerns in that I had never had it removed this way. She assured me it was easier and she knew what she was doing.
She finished the service after over 30 minutes, which is crazy, because I am generally in and out just doing a polish change. She sat me down to have them dry and by this time I needed to leave, so she said just to wait until the machine turned off, with no mention that they would require more time to dry. So when I went to pay I already had some clumping and they just didn't look right, I gave her my concerns again and they still charged me the same as the shellac polish change, for a 7 day color, whatever, I paid. I went back to my hotel which was about 15-20 minutes away, and took a shower, when I got out they were all smudged, the polish just didn't dry, and my nails were flimsy. I ended up having to cut my nails off, they were just so gross. Overall the worst experience ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Russell Howerton is a good stylist. If you are wanting to have a good men's cut, I would recommend Russell.
Russell performs miracles. I told him what I wanted to do and he was honest in telling me that he could do it, but it wouldn't be the best fit for me. He consulted with me and gave me his thoughts and suggestions. I left the salon looking forward to the next time I can go back to have Russell do my hair!
