According to the content creator, she got a filling repair and her toes done. The nail technician informed her that the price for the filling was $45 and the pedicure was $30. But when it was time to pay, the content creator noticed her bill was $85.
“Where did 85 come from?” Hwatt Stuff asked the nail technician.
The nail technician’s response? “The additional $5 was to take the gel polish off your toes.”
However, it still didn’t explain the other extra $5 charge. The nail technicians started speaking to each other in a language other than English, which angered the content creator’s husband. He told them to “speak in a language we understand” in regard to the money.
Eventually, Steve, the manager of the nail salon, gave the TikToker the $5 back in cash. Ever since this incident, the nail salon customer says she “pays attention” to her receipts. The TikToker concluded the video by revealing the name of the nail salon as Capital Nails in Union City, Georgia.
