Preamble. I did not like Pure the first time I tried it. So much so it was to be the last. Read here. It seems that location closed down shortly after my visit. Rightfully so. Beauty karma.
But Momma GG came to spend the weekend with her girls, and we like to shop and get our nails done, although the ma swears she doesn't. Doth protest too much. So I "dragged" her while we were out shopping on Robson. This Pure is the closest so I called a few hours before and had them book us in. This location looked ten times better than the other one, and they were also ten times more professional. It's a quaint nail bar next to Suki's above Tiffany & Co. It's easy and affordable. I still like Poised, but I would go back to this Pure, especially since they have great specials and corporate discounts. Look into it, you might just qualify.
