I'm visiting from the NYC and wanted to try some services and went to your picks as I do back home and wanted to let you know that Nstyle was a disaster. My nails chipped the next day and walked out while waiting for an hour with wet hair for a blow dry. Would not recommend it and will make sure I post on travel buddy and trip advisor. I don't usually bother with reviews but this was my worst ever. Thanking for reading.
