Went to the South Melbourne Tips & Toes today and was ripped off so feeling a bit peeved. I was advised the cost of the manicure and pedicure would be $50 with "ordinary lacquer" as opposed to shellac. I confirmed I did not want shellac and was then told to choose a lacquer from the stand which the attendant pointed to (right beside the front of the store where we were standing). After the service I was advised the cost was now $60:00 because the colour I had chosen was a new bottle (beats me how this has anything to do with anything) and if I'd wanted a $50 service I  had to choose a bottle from the rear of the store which I had not been told. Won't be going there again and don't recommend it based on my experience. There is a smaller salon along Clarendon street near tram stop 24 which I subsequently noticed which offers a cheaper and more personal service. Wish I'd seen it sooner.
