I'm a spa member at this location. I love Gabby. She's my absolute favorite employee in this spa. If it wasn't for her, I'm not sure I'd have the utmost loyalty to use this particular site. She's the only person here I feel actually goes out of her way for every customer that walks in, and is completely honest with all of her sales and advice that are spa related. I don't just feel like a customer when she's working, but a an actual friend or a real "spa member." She doesn't just put you in a bed and leave you, but she asks about your day/ week, offers advice on how to keep the optimal tan, and is just a fantastic employee. She definitely makes the money I pay worth it. I do agree with the comment below, as Kim hasn't ever shown appreciation for her customers. It's all about sales and money, but hey, it is a business and they are out for your money, like a lot of places. Speaking of other employees there, the girl that works on Sundays (short, dark hair) is the absolute WORST. Even when you have an appointment, she never cares about setting up a bed for you, and just listens to rap music up front. One time I called 6 times to make sure their was availability, and the phone kept hanging up. I came in and asked, and she thought it was a "telemarketer." Convinent. This has happened a couple of times. I've had to wait in a robe after doing a hydration bed for 10-15 minutes at a time while she sat up front not paying attention. I couldn't just walk to the front in front of the windows, as everyone outside could have seen me in a robe. After almost having to yell for attention to put me in a tanning bed, she did so without apologizing. I won't go into detail why Gabby is the best employee here compared to everyone else. But, she is the reason this review is 5 stars.
Being a guy, I was originally nervous about getting a pedicure out in public where other people could actually see! LOL! I can't believe that I went more than half of my adult life not having ever experienced this creature comfort! I have been going to Solar Nails, mainly once a month, for over 9 years now. I get a pedicure, manicure and a haircut on most visits. I have always felt pampered and appreciated every time I have visited. The staff speaks limited English, but they are able to understand and communicate well enough your needs in a pleasant and friendly manner. The shop is always very clean and the staff are very prompt about cleaning their space & there hands after every customer they handle. They always wear gloves & their tools are always stored in sterilized bags before they begin your service. I always call ahead & make an appointment & never have had to wait more than a few minutes to be attended too! I enjoy doing business with companies that seem to genuinely care about me as a customer. I have always felt this way at Solar Nails. I will be a loyal customer for many years to come!
The absolute BEST nail salon in TX!! nothing compares to the quality and cleanliness of Star Nails in Arlington, TX on Collins. I have been a long time customer and I have always received tons of compliments on my nails, toes, and my eyebrows. It's located conveniently between dallas & ftw with lots of parking and over 10 stations to get whatever service you desire. Newly decorated w a Parisian touch, it's extremely inviting and fresh! Their pedicures are heavenly & never crack (I had 1 of them last through a 2 week trip to miami and I was walking through sand everyday). The waxing is quick, precise, and not painful at all. I have never had an issue w the brow or lip waxing services that I have received there. The girls there are friendly and professional with big smiles & open schedules. So feel free to call ahead or walk in. My fav is Jamie...she has kept my nails looking *fabulous* for years & I will never go anywhere else to get them done. Xoxo, TanyaR.
