I love this nail salon. It's the best in Athens, hands down! I've been there five times, and the second time I walked in the door the manager, Tran, and the nail tech who did my nails the first time, Dong, both smiled and called out to me by name. It had been three weeks since I was there for my first visit. They are so professional yet so friendly! The manager is really on top of everything that goes on in the salon. She has a really good style of making sure she understands what the customer wants and that they get it. She does this without being pushy or micromanaging the nail techs--they just all seem to work together really well. Dong, who does my nails, is a really good artist. I can give her a general idea of the design I want--usually only on a couple of nails, for accent--and she always does something much prettier than what I had imagined. Even though the shop is right on Prince Avenue, there's usually no problem with parking, as there is a dedicated parking lot just down from the shop that serves Express Nails and several other businesses in that little complex. The last two times I was there, I got the newer gel nails--SNS--which I really like. It's strong, like regular gel, but not so thick looking, and doesn't require as much time under the ultra-violet light, These folks really try hard to please their customers without being pushy. They're all really genuine, caring individuals.
I had a wonderful experience here! The owners, Mr. Lu & Ms. Mai, and all of their nail techs are very courteous, conscientious, hard workers, and best of all they LOVE JESUS! They were very hygienically sound & used wrapped, sterilized tools for my pedicure and my gel manicure! Both my gel manicure and my pedicure lasted longer than usual! I am definitely making this MY regular nail salon & I'm recommending it to everyone I know!
Love, love, love this place!! They are all amazing! I have not experienced a bad set of nails yet and after two weeks they barely look grown out or crummy. The service is impeccable! They are friendly and very inviting! Appointments are the way to go! They are ready for you as soon as you arrive! With a smile might I add! And on top of all that, they are affordable! Great service at a great price!
