I went with my mom and grandma for manicures as part of a gift for my grandmas birthday. The manicures were $60 each which is much more than I'm used to paying but figured it would be more about the whole experience than the end result. When we first got in we were told to fill out a form and we could sit in a tiny waiting room with two real chairs and a couple of odd stools (which may have been side tables honestly), I tried sitting on the stool to fill out my form but it was so awkward and uncomfortable I decided to stand. There was a large room full of comfortable looking and empty seats but we weren't allowed to sit there because it was for robed people only. When our manicurists came to get us we asked to have my grandma seated in the middle so we could all talk and she wouldn't have to strain to hear and we were told talking is discouraged. I've been to other high end spas for manicures before and I've never been asked not to talk at all, it's simply encouraged that you speak quietly. We wanted to get a manicure together because we thought it would give us a good amount of time to catch up but we felt uncomfortable attempting to talk after that.
It would have all been easy to sidestep if the manicures had come out nicely but within 24 hours all of us had chipped nails, and none of us had done anything strenuous to have made it happen. I'm not sure if it was just put on sloppily or if cheap polish or base/top coat was used but it was really upsetting and annoying given the price tag.
I didn't find it worth the money at all, I wouldn't go back.
