Beautiful Nails on Southside - DO NOT GO THERE. Gave me a fungal infection and uses dental acrylic! I have always had long natural nails. Due to my job they have been getting weak. Decided to get acrylic overlay for the first time a month ago. Went to Beautiful because I see it when I go to Walmart. Not knowing what to avoid I didn't realize he was drilling my nails paper thin. Didn't question why he had a mask on. Nails looked OK, felt strong, but the polish started to wear at the tips after a couple of days. I gave him another chance and went back after 10 days for a fill. He works so fast you can't even see your nails while he's working. Again, the polish started to wear and also chip very quickly, so I decided to try somewhere else. As soon as my new tech started trying to remove the old acrylic she told me it was the banned MMA (dental) acrylic. It took forever to soak and scrape off. Once it was removed she also showed me that I have a fungal infection on two nails. Yuk! I went home & did some research on MMA. That crap ruins your nails! And it can rip them from their beds! I'm so mad. And now I have to have ugly nails while I wait for the fungus to clear up. Never ever go to Beautiful Nails on Southside! I will be complaining to the State Board.
