About Us

  • Expectations, an African American owned nail spa, is owned by Sheila Billips. She has 26 years in the nail industry, taught in an era that quality nail care is always the priority.

    Our priority is to create a comfortable environment where your individual needs are a priority. We use spa quality products.


    A little info on acrylics: All acrylics are not alike.


    We use EMA (Ethyl Methacrylate) acrylic liquid. Many discount salons use MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) acrylic liquid which is unlawful to use in NYS. EMA acrylic liquid cost on average 4 times that of MMA acrylic liquid. For that reason, Acrylic services at a salon that uses quality products will always cost you more than what you would pay at a discount salon. Quality nail care costs.

    My desire is to support young techs coming up in the business, teaching them foundation is essential to a complete finished product.
