That is complete yuk....... I used to have my nails done by a lady who I didn`t think was brilliant at her work but a lovely lady and although she smoked I never saw her and she never reeked of smoke at all. We used to just have a natter about nails and picked each others brains a lot.
Bet you won`t be going back there in a hurry

What was the shop called Fagash Lil's ???
Very unprofessional me thinks.

You let her do yor nails????? I would have run a mile (Olympic Standard)
Jeans and trainers can be forgiven, but the rest ???
Sounds to my like she was in casual mode, couldn't be bothered to sanitise, couldn't be bothered to do anything at all by he sounds of it but, put on the nails and take your money.

But it has opend your eyes to some of the salon standards.
Even thought she was a realy nice Lady, I feel she has let herself down and the clients too.
What sort of tips did she give you???
Tips on Sanitising?? Desinfecting????
As for renting space there, no matter how professional you where, her unprofessional attitude would spoil it for you.

hi ya...her tips were for filing etc...she didnt say anything when she dropped items, just oh im clumsy today...lol
i wouldnt even consider renting space there, it was just not the atmosphere i want for my business, her kids live in the upstairs flat with her and kept popping in...if i wanted that atmosphere i maise aswell stay at home and do nails, ive 3 kids of my own to distract me!!! she was a nice enough lady but i didnt like her standards of hygiene etc...
even my mother in law to be commented on my hygiene...im always spraying my things...i gave mother in law to be a spa manicure yesterday and finished with make a wish, she loved it...bless x
