Check out Sundrops Nail Spot where all the magic happened!  Our nail tech's name was Tiffany, but they are all very talented!  Sundrops is located in a super cute, "hipster" area of Phoenix (I'm partial because it's my hood).  They are just north of "The Corner" on 40th st. and Camelback ...  I suggest a day with your besties at Sundrops Nail Spot and don't forget to to drop by Postino for some vino and bruschetta when you're done!!
