Excellent Acrylic Nail Art Designs - I had a very pleasant first experience at Glen Park Nails. I usually like to paint my own toenails, complete with little artsy flowers of my own, but alas the baby in my belly is growing too big for me to reach my toes! No worries: that just means it's pedicure time! I had read here on Yelp that it's a good idea to make an appointment, so I called ahead for "the next appointment you have" and told her I could be there in 15, so she booked my pedicure for 15 minutes from the time I called. Nice. (Actually, I barely made it on time since I had to stop and get cash! Don't forget cash!)
The pedicure was great; the gal massaged my feet and shins with a sugar scrub which started off exfoliating and gradually smoothed out as the sugar granules dissolved. I've seen this used at higher-end salons before, but never at a small, 18-dollar-pedi kind of place like this. She made intermittent chit-chat, asking me about my day and, surprisingly, she gathered all on her own that it was my first time there (impressive) so we chatted a little about Yelp. Overall, I absolutely enjoyed myself and I will go back. As others have said, their collection of polish is high-quality and well-rounded. My toe nails are now a cute shade of purple and look lovely.
There were only two things missing from my experience which would have made it 5-star, and I'm sure I could have received them by simply asking... but I shouldn't have to ask! I want to read my book, relax, and pay zero attention to my surroundings. Namely, the massage chair I was sitting in either wasn't turned on or was out of order. (Unfortunate because others have spoken highly of these chairs.) Also, she didn't offer to do any nail art. Normally it's "Would you like a flower? *cough* please-say-yes-because-we-overcharge-a-whopping-$5-for-the-little-things *cough cough*" but--nothing. She just motioned for my sandals, helped me put them on, stated that it would be $18 dollars and took her next customer. No little fan for my still-wet polish, just, "Good luck walking down the street and getting in your car without messing those up!" Hmph. Luckily I managed, so that fourth star gets to stay.
