The first picture shows what I asked for and what was more recently done.
On my first attempt to get this I got what is shown below. The "tips" were placed in such a way that they appeared to start in the middle of my nail bed. I also asked for the white part to be much shorter. I want my nails to look nice but not call unnecessary attention.
I described in detail what I wanted and the gal acknowledged every word I said. It became very apparent that she did not speak much English and understood even less of it. She did ask me at the end if I was happy and I said no. She understood that but made no attempt to correct the issue.
I am not much for confrontation. I paid and I left. How would you handle this situation? Am I the only wimp out there??
