The week before I visited Fiji nail salon I had heard a discussion on a radio show about nail salons. Many callers phoned in sharing their different experiences, many of them negative. One comment that everyone had in common was that no matter what salon you visit the staff would be having loud conversations with each other in a different language and you never knew if they were talking and laughing about you. Another common practice was for staff to talk on the phone while they worked on your nails, slowing their work down. I have experienced all of the above. I just believed it was common practice and they were all the same. So when I was at Fiji I just watched assuming it would be the same there as everywhere else I had been. It was very different. I was there for about 1 hour. Not once did a staff member take a personal phone call or text. When they needed to speak to each other, it was quietly and in english. They were very pleasant and it was so relaxing. Toward the end of my visit I spoke to an employee who was putting the finishing touchs on my nails. I told her how I had heard the radio discussion and that I had just watched, curious to see if it was the same here as everywhere else. I complimented their service and told her how different this experience was. She said it was store policy and that if employees needed to be reached by family or friends they had to call the business phone. I would definitely recommed visiting Fiji Nail salon. The atmosphere was relaxing. The staff were wonderful. The prices are very competitive with every other nail salon in the area and you can get coupons for money off in the coupon clipper magazine and on line!! All of the above is why I'd rate my experience as exceptional.

To the review below, I was actually there that day when she came in. It was also my first time and I came with my friend who had highly recommended it to me b/c she has been going to Trini (owner) for years. I was helped by Katrina, the owner's daughter. She was very sweet and helped me take care of my cuticles, which i have a bad habit of picking at. She recommended that I get the gel manicure to help cure me of my bad habit. "If your nails are pretty and painted, maybe you won't be so tempted to pick at them!" She was a total sweetheart. I actually overheard the fight that was going on up front. Katrina pointed it out to me later on what she was talking about. The owner posted an example of the coupon she has on the front door for people to know about and to bring if they were to come in. Katrina then said, "if my mom gave everyone that price b/c they saw it on our door to advise people to bring it...then she wouldn't need to pay for the coupons, she could just do that price then" which makes sense to me. I don't know about the other incidents that may have happened but the coupon incident was completely taken out of hand to my opinion. The lady herself was rude and hollering inside of a business place. I enjoyed my time and experience at the salon and enjoyed Katrina's services very much. I would hate for one person's misunderstandings to put a bad rep on the salon. All in all, misunderstandings happens, but you also get more with honey than with salt. I, myself will be back at Suki so I can see my favorite new nail tech!
I went to Polished for the first time on 11/21/10 and recieved a fill-in. Let me first start off by saying that the salon is different then your regular nail salons hence (Nail Bar). The man who did my fill-in was very nice but his hand technique was horrible. First off I do not like for my acrylic nails to look thick and that's excactly what happen, then he went on to do my nail polish which he put on too thick and looked lumpy and sloopy, when he finished he told me to let my nails air dry. Huh?! What salon does that?!? They have no nail drying stations, so i had to ASK for a fan or something. So after I sat for awhile about 20 min, my nails still werent dry, this girl i was sitting next to offered me her UV nail dryer after she was done. So my opinion about this place is that the people and their hand techniques are very average but they do offer the newest nail products but after I called around to other nail salons I found they offer the same things they have but at a cheaper cost.( Shellac Nails $45 at Polished and $30 at Dilworth Nail Salon) So if you ask me, i think Polished Nail Bar is a very average nail SALON. The people there are nice but not worth the hype nor the drive. Maybe I'll try their other locations in the near future.
