I have been living in the Franklin area for around 4 years now and have been having my nails done with acrylic for around 14 years. After moving, I was WAY more worried about finding a good nail tech than I was a hairdresser! Luckily, while shopping in a furniture store in the Cool Springs area, the store owner suggested I try Lisa at Solar Nails. After having tried several other nail places in the Franklin/Brentwood area and being soooo disappointed with the results, I had nothing to lose. Well, now I would not dream of going anywhere else! I have the pink and white set and really admire Lisa's handiwork. They look just gorgeous and stay beautifully shiny until I have them done again, which is usually every 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. The shop is nice and clean, and Lisa and her husband Calvin are always very polite and accommodating. Their pedi chairs are also wonderful and a real treat! :) Anyway, just thought I'd give Lisa and Calvin major props for doing the best nails in Franklin! You may want to call ahead for an appointment because they are rather busy at times, especially on the weekends, but of course walk-ins are always welcome.
I've been in the area for 8 years and tried many nail salons. I'm a pedicure, artificial nail-kind of girl and I get the most beautiful pink and white nails done here. I get a ton of compliments on them, even from strangers. Pedicures are great, too. They take time to massage your legs and feet and you don't feel rushed, like a cattle call that you get at so many other salons. Their prices are inexpensive compared to other places and they provide better quality services, in my opinion. I tip well because I feel like I'm getting a steal on their services and they do such a nice job. And the people seem genuinely nice who work here, too. I won't go anywhere else unless something changes in the way they do business. Loyal customer here!
I have been going to Solar Nails for over three years. The salon is always clean and tidy, and run with the utmost professionalism. Calvin and Lisa are there every day -- they are hands down the best nail techs in Franklin. I get pink & whites done by Lisa, and they last for 3 weeks at least. The prices are competitive and totally worth it for the quality work that is done. It's a full-service salon - manicures, pedicures, waxing, pink&white, solar gels, etc - you name it, they do it. They can get a bit busy on Friday afternoons and Saturdays, so if you don't want a small wait, call to make an appointment. If you don't mind a wait, there are plenty of good magazines to peruse and the TV's are always on.
