I only used to go to the salon for pedicures. Every time I went for a manicure and asked for a gel overlay, they would look at me all confused. The last time I went and asked a guy for that, he say yeah I can do that; only to end up cutting my nails off and putting acrylic over them Angry. After that, I said never again.

When a male do my nails, my nails are perfect. 

I have the Pink UV gel nails.

I also hate it when 2-3 people walk in and the nail tech just hurry up to get to those customer's and up my nails...i know u live on tips but dayum i was here first and take ur dayum time..


This happened to me a few times so I bought the gel and UV light to them myself.

If product is touching cuticle that's guaranteed lifting.  But there shouldn't be so much space that it looks like you need a fill.  Lot of these what us nail techs call NSS.  Non standard salons are practicing illegal policies anyway.  Many of the techs were trained on the job with no certification at all.  Illegal chemical are often used . When they only charge $15 for a set of nails there motive is not quality service. It is to do as many customers in less time as possible. Thus equals you getting crappy nails.    Doing nails is not as simple as it looks.  You have to have a real steady hand and years of practice and you also must love doing it . I can't say that men or women techs are better....whoever has more practice  will be better.  

in some countries workers in Asian salons. Are only paid $5 and hour while some of these salons rake in 20k a week...it like a sweatshop for nails.    If I was getting $5/he I would not give a damn how your nails look either lol

No there is no small gap between the cuticle and where the product ends. It;s a nice size gap of where it does look like i need a refill. Like i said I have the pink uv gel nails and i love it cause one can wear polish with it or without polish. 
One tech did mess up my nails really bad to the point i had to go back 2ce and the 2nd time they just did all of my nails over for free cause she effed up. the guy did them over  and turned out excellent, the way they should of looked in the first place.

Hence your name ...Nailtech DC, QUESTION???  How does one get the pink nail gel removed? I was told it had to be filed down and then soaked off...

thanks for your response

he takes his time? detailed? knows just the right amount of hairs to get? the perfect arch?
to the point you say..I am taking u home with me..LOL he is that good huh?  

u see , is it because these females don't want you to be leaving there looking even more polished when u came in? The men (where i live) do take their time and are more detailed oriented. they take my hands and look at their work before they are done and if a mistake is found they correct it. Not these femalesAngry

the one guy who does my nails is so damn good i actually gave him a 10.00 tip..yep that's how good he is..but last week he wasn;t there and these nails had to get done..ratchet city..and i was given to a female...lawd

Never noticed a major gender difference. Except once at this Vietnamese salon. All the ladies were busy with other customers, so the male owner went and did my nails. The polish lasted 2 days. I was pissed.
