I've frequented JV Nails & Tan for about the 4-6 weeks for basic manicure. Had my first pedicure about 3 weeks ago. Normally get the gentleman for my services. Last week received the younger girl (think it is the owner's daughter) for my services and had a horrible experience. She was noticeably not thrilled to be at the shop. I made the mistake of going later in the evening around 6pm. (They closed at 7:30). I'm assuming she was ready to go home. The french pedicure was mediocre at best. My nails weren't filed properly to achieve a uniform shape on all my nails, polish wasn't smooth, AND she cut at least 3 of my cuticles. The gentleman who does nails in the shop is great! He always takes his time and is very friendly. The other older woman (Not the owner's wife) is also pretty good but not as friendly. I made the mistake of smudging a nail on a previous visit and her face clearly showed how annoyed she was. So not as friendly but does a good job.If you try JV Nails, I would not recommend the young girl because she did not take her time or seem to have any interest in doing a good job. Can't remember when my cuticles were cut during a manicure before last week. I realize doing manicures and pedicures all day during the summer may not be the most exciting job. However, if the shop expects customer's to pay for the service, they should make sure to provide quality service minus attitudes and apathy.
I just graduated and want to thank Kristi, Beth, and Laura for a great experience. I now have a esthetics license and solid education! Looking forwa…
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.
Went in to get my acrylics removed. A new guy was doing them and ended up cutting into my nail damaging my nail bed which caused me to bleed. He was apologetic but management was not. They tried to charge me full price and gave me a two dollar discount. I called late that night to speak to a manager (Kevin) and he offered me $5 towards my next visit and never apologized. After a couple day in pain (mind you I am unable to get a manicure till it heals) I went in to speak to Kevin to get a t refund ($8). He kept offering my $5 off and I explained that I didn't want that bc I would not be returning to that salon so get my nails done. He then laughed in mY face and said good. I told him he was being unprofessional, as I am a manager in customer service in the same mall. He said "good don't come back"! I've had past great experiences but as soon as they were in the wrong they will not own up and don't care if you return. All this over $8!! Never returning to them! Most un professional experince ever!!
I rarely give a 5-star rating to a service provider as I’m a perfectionist and am admittedly hard to please. However, Tina at V Nails and Spa Salon deserves nothing less than a 5-star rating. I have gone to her three times now to for “pink and white” nails and she has done a consistent and exceptional job. I never have to worry about her hurting my cuticles or burning my real nails. She always shapes my nails exactly how I request. I do not need to return for a fill for at least three weeks as my “pink and white” nails hardly lift at all during this time, nor do my nails lose the shine of the topcoat of gel. The only reason for the fill is grow out of my natural nails. Also, my nails never have that thick look that I have occasionally received from less skilled nail technicians. I always get the American manicure because I like the more natural look. Tina is a perfectionist with a close attention to detail and always willing to work with your preferences. She’s the best!
I went to Nini on recommendation from two coworkers. I can't say that I've had many excellent experiences at nail salons, but today was different. I am getting married this Saturday, and wanted to plan a special outing for the women in the family before the big day. I was worried because I knew I'd be having women from all over town coming, some needing babysitters, and I just wanted it to be a good time and worth it for everyone involved. I scheduled for a party of 6 at 6 pm (which they still allowed even though they close at 7) I walked in 20 minutes early to start picking out a color. Something so simple became such a complicated decision for me with wedding brain. One of the ladies was so nice to ask me what I was interested in and help me go through the colors one by one, even sampling them on my nails before we got started. We never felt rushed. The "regular" mani pedi service puts others in the area to shame. I am so glad I chose Ninis for such a special event in my life.
With excellent service, friendly staff, and massage chairs which actually massage rather than shake, you can't get a better pedicure in charlotte. 45 minutes of pure bliss in a clean, modern, and pleasant environment. Last week I tried the shellac manicure, rather than my usual buffing. Polish just won't stay on my nails because of the beating they take when I play my cello, but the shellac is staying strong. I'm simply amazed and highly recommend it for those of you who need polish that can't chip. There is no way the techs here would let anyone out of the salon with smudged polish. They seem to obsess over the little details I can't even see. They also keep my brows in great shape, never taking off too much. I tried threading at a mall location once - never again. Polished techs know what they're doing. All in all, I love this place.
I started going here because my old nail salon moved further away. In the process of looking I came here and I have yet to go anywhere else, Holly is my go to nail tech and she is very personable, funny and understanding! Here I don't get just my nails done, we just talk away. Also, when anyone else comes in they know who they are and there is a huge professionalism. The prices are reasonable and they massage your arms or legs after each service. I swear it feels amazing!!! Please don't get this place confused with the other nail salon in the arboretum (VIP nails) because that place is completely different and they rush you over there. Avalon nails is the place to be!
I have been getting my nails done for 15 years and each time I have to move to a new place finding a good nail salon is really hard and I usually go to 3 or 4 before finding a good one. OP Nails is amazing. They are clean, organized and really nice. David did an amazing job on my nails. Not only did he listen to how i wanted them done he put the correct amount of acrylic for my nails on. Even though they do not offer color acrylic you can buy it and they will put it on for you. It will be something I will be doing in the future. I would highly recommend OP Nails to anyone who is looking for a place to get your nails done.
A HIDDEN GEM!!I've been going to this place and have been very pleased with everything! The ladies are so friendly every time I am there and very accommodating whether I've made an appt over the phone or by just being a walk-in.The prices are very affordable as one would think since it IS South park.I love the selection of polishes and also love that they are very progressive and will work with you on any way that you would like your nails done.My fave is the shellac - not as many choices as the regular polishes but just about every color you could ask for. If I had to rate them, they definitely get........TWO THUMBS UP!
I attended school hear several years ago. The classes are small and you get a lot of personal attention. I learned everything I needed to breeze through my State board exams. I also learned a ton of additional things that really helped me stand out from the crowd when I left school. I was hired to work at a Spa straight out of school and started with the confidence knowing that I was given the knowledge and skills to do my job. I have now opened up my own spa and owe a lot of my success to my instructor Kristi Papst. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to be successful in Esthetics.
