My good friend Brittany Huber has been practicing nails for a while (self-taught), so when I heard she was going to school here I just had to stop in when I was visiting from out of state. SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ In my most unbiased opinion, this is by far my favorite set I've ever gotten. Her keen eye for colors and patterns, as well as attention to detail, were very impressive. I think part of my new "vacation routine" when visiting Tampa will have to include getting a full set done by Brittany. Also, the facility was super clean and bright, and everyone was so nice. The music was a vibe. I had a wonderful experience overall! Honestly better than at any nail salon I've ever been to as far as hospitality and cleanliness.
