I've been here several times and they have always been professional & clean. They do a great job too. I pick my nails very badly & no matter who ends up doing them they take the time needed to clean them up & make them look good, which I've found is NOT the case in other salons. The color selection is very good. They are current and the products they use are high quality and clean. No nasty, old or crusty bottles here. Everyone speaks English which surprisingly helps a lot in communicating my needs. They do have a loyalty card which is $5 off after 5 x $25 visits, so if you get two services you get two credits. I have been to just about every salon in the Irmo & Columbia area and the level of service, cleanliness & price have never been as good as Aqua nails. This is definitely my go to place for nails now even though it's not that close to home.
Great place. I went there on 2/14/13 for the first time. The staff was very friendly and I feel like I got a great mani/pedi. Today their mani/pedi combo was $5 off normal (only $32 after discount). I don't know if this is a weekday deal or a special for Valentine's but it was great. The salon didn't have a strong nail salon smell and I thought it was adorable that they have pedicure chairs for children. And for anyone wondering, they were very easy to understand.
I'm so glad I discovered this place. I got a fantastic shellac manicure yesterday, and I'm going back for a pedicure ASAP. The salon is clean, modern, open and airy, they have a large selection of regular, shellac and gel nail polishes (opi mostly) and the salon staff is professional and nice. If my future appointments are as good as my first, this is my go-to nail salon.
