.. at Rescue Rittenhouse and really missed her after she left. I've had my nails done at a ton of different places, in many cities, and she really is one of the best techs.
I was extremely happy when I discovered that she is the owner of this new(ish) spa. I went to get a mani right away. And it was fantastic. But for one nail clipped just a little too short, I can't find fault with anything else (and this, in and of itself, unusual!). My cuticles were well taken care of; the massage was awesome, the color is great, and so far (24 hours and a couple of hot showers later) the dark polish is still there. After she was done applying color, she even applied cuticle oil -- because they do get dry by the end of the treatment! That was a super nice touch.
Apparently, Karina was also happy to see me, since she gave me a 20% discount, which was totally unexpected but much appreciated.
She showed me around the spa and I noted that they only have one pedi chair. You can come with a friend, but one of you would not get the full benefit of the treatment. Hmm, I wonder if that'd be okay with my sister?
I'm definitely going back, soon. Maybe I'll cancel my pedi at Rescue and get it done with Karina tomorrow.
