So basically the customer service matched the skill of the trainee.
I'd second that. I had pretty much exactly the same experience there, and it was overpriced.
I had acrylics done by a trainee at Sheffield College in January. She was great and they only started looking damaged after 4 weeks (I couldn't be bothered to have them 'maintained', otherwise I'm sure they'd still be fine). Still, not bad for a tenner!
