Hidden Gem - Try It! – Hidden away on Huntington Ave across from the reflecting pool is a fantastic nail salon. I get the pedis and manis, but know women who also use the waxing services and all are wonderful. They take their time, they polish lasts over a week, and it is inexpensive. Gel/shellac can last almost 3 weeks so is a great deal. Clean - sanitary - nice music and massage chairs. You really should try this salon! They take credit - although prefer tips in cash.
great little nail salon – I'm really surprised at all of the bad reviews I think they are confusing this nail spa with another of the same name. I have been going to this salon for four years. They do take credit cards (you just have to tip in cash) and always have. A manicure (with a solid color) costs twelve dollars and usually lasts about a week on me (I'm a chemist). I have never had a bad manicure and the waxing services are fantastic. I usually get a brazilian bikini wax and my eyebrows done. It is inexpensive and my eyebrows always look great. The staff is friendly and there usually isn't a wait. Hope people will give this place a chance.
Horrible experience – This is by far the worst nail place ever. My 5 year old son could do a better job. I left there so upset. They didn't know how to file. They didn't know how to paint. Nothing! The electric file didnt work. The fans didn't work. Horrible service!!!! I have to go someplace else now to get them re-done. ugh.
clean atmosphere, not friendly, doesn't accept credit, classless/tacky service – I don't know why I've gone here more than once. Honestly, aside from the comfy chairs and clean atmosphere, the service is awful. Even with an appointment, I've always had to wait a long time, and in general, they just don't do a good job.
I've been there for a plain french manicure, a full set, and a fill, and all have sent me running to Walgreens for new polish/nail files/clippers. They just don't look classy or natural. But alas, it's right down the road from where I work, so you can't beat the convenience.
Trust me. Don't take a chance on these people. If you do decide to, though, make sure you have cash. They don't accept credit cards and won't understand (just like every nail salon) that you're trying to pay with a card unless you take it out of your wallet and flash it.
I don't recommend it AT ALL.
