I went here the other day because I was stuck in Raleigh for 7 hours waiting on my botched wedding dress from Victorian Rose Bridals. I was in not the best of moods, so I sat down to get my nails done. I wish I knew the name of the lady that did my nails because she 100% made my day. My nails look great, but I was more impressed with her. She told me about how she talks to all her customers in order to learn english better, and how she practices it with her young daughter every night. There are so many people that could care less and I was just so impressed with her want to learn the english language. She, of course, appologized to me for her inability to speak well, but I told her I thought she was doing a great job. At the end of my manicure she pulled out a small little bracelet and gave it to me. She told me because I was nice and she wanted to give it to me. I tipped her well, because I didn't have anything small to give, to which she said no that it was too much. You never find anyone that will do something selfless for others anymore and I was so appreciative. She definitely made my day better, and I wish I could thank her in another way, other than writing this review.
I have been going to this nail salon for a long time and have had nothing but stellar quality work by Wayne. He is very meticulous about his work and great to converse with as well. Very articulated young man who understands and respects people's time. Unfortunately, I had an experience today that i think was unfair and unjustified with an upcharge on nail polish for 2 great toes because i selected white nail polish. It was basic white nail polish, not gel, not mood but simple white color. I learned of the upcharge as I am checking out.When there is an upcharge this should have been communicated before you do the work allowing the client to proceed knowingly or consider an alternative color. Personally, i would have simply considered a nail design as oppose to only white. When i inquired about it, it was explained to me because white is tougher to evenly coat than other colors. I feel that there should be a written sign or verbal notification anytime there is an adjustment to a quoted price regardless of the business. Mel
I am taking the time to write this review, which means that this place must be awesome, because i NEVER write reviews. From the moment I walked in, everyone was soooo friendly. Buddy (who i'm guessing is the owner) is SUCH a sweetheart. We talked a lot---he is so nice---and he has such an intriguing background!! He did an AMAZING job with my nails; he even added little flower details to two of my nails as a "souvenir" lol while i was getting my nails done a girl came in to get her eyebrows done---i saw her eyebrows before and after---AMAZING. so, i decided to get my done (for the first time ever). they turned out beautifully!!! i was just soooo impressed with this place and the people that i had to write a review!! if your are seeking a place to get your nails/toes/eyebrows done in the raleigh area----go to this place---you will not be disappointed! ps their hours are super accommodating as well---great for after work :D
