I'm writing this because I think this website and this place deserves a better review than the one by ""Zwife"". Honestly, I wish I could give that woman zero stars. Do we really need to be so pretentious about a nail salon? This is already such a selfish and unnecessary privledge that woman have become obsessed with. ""Uneducated Manicurists""? Really - what did that woman want, a manicurist with a f-in masters??
I have gone to a lot of nail salons in Brooklyn and Manhattan and I honestly find Iris Nails as one of my favorite places. I believe I have simple criteria: clean, friendly, good quality, & affordable. They meet almost all of this. They are especially clean and very friendly!! I appreciate the environment they have created both physically and socially that makes me feel comfortable, relaxed, and welcomed. The quality for the most part has been great but every once in a while my nails chip before a week. (Clearly, not the end of the world.) I find their manicures and the massages to be incredibly reasonable but unfortunately the pedicures are too high for me....maybe one day I'll treat myself.
In the summer...say around 5pm... it can be very crowded so I'd avoid that time if possible.
Other than that, I go there all the time and always introduce friends not from the city to this salon.
