This is a new nail lounge and spa in the upper level on Place Montreal Trust shopping centre. I decided to give it a try after reading good reviews about this salon. I booked a shellac manicure and half arm waxing over the phone. the receptionist sounds really friendly with me on the phone, so that went very smooth.
I arrived there a bit early, luckily the same receptionist was there. She kept checking on me while waiting for my technician and then took me to choose the color. I got completely lost there, even though I booked a shellac mani I just could not it help it checking out their huge collection of colors. I was told it is almost 300 different shades, wow. She took me to the manicure station where the technician was waiting there. Up until this point I was really impressed with the level of customer service I received before my service even started. I thought that really nice and I felt they really value my business.
The technician brought her instruments which were all sterlized and sealed. I did not watch her more of the time as I opted to tune in to one of my favourite classic movies (Pretty Woman) using those fancy wireless headphones that they offer. By the team I had to put my hand under the UV light, the technician gave me special gloves to wear which I never saw before. Apparently, those are special UV gloves to protect the skin from the UV light which is cancerous. I had Shellac done at some of the best and most expensive spas in town and non of them offer such a thing which is something I appreciate alot. I went back to watching the tv. Eventually, when she finished applying the top coat, I looked at my nails and I was truly amazed how everything just looked perfect, the shape, the application, the color, cuticles, etc. I paid $40 plus tax and tips in the end but it was by far the best shellac I ever had. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for quality service and does not mind paying a bit more than what other asian salons charge.
