Went there with a group. Nice warm neck pillow. Less than comfortable chair. Water in copper bowl luke warm. Didn't really get rid of the roughness, massage not that long. Because I was with a group they automatically charged 20% gratuity. I got a color and it was $42! My friend got a french tip and it was $48! Another girl got a mani pedi and she spent $75!!! I go to get a pedicure because my nails look better when someone else does them. I could have done a better job in the dark. My entire nail isn't even painted.
Cute things to buy inside, but don't waist your money, you can get everything in there at Charming Charlie for half price.
Will never go again, will let others not to either...

I highly recommend the embellish pedicure - It is fantastic!
I love the atmosphere, you get to unwind from the moment you walk in. Just sit down and enjoy. Have a drink - watch a chick flick, get a heated pillow on your shoulders, and relax.
What's not to love?

I went here with a group of co workers for a shower of sort. Just a hand full of girls looking to relax. And relax we didn't. Over paid for a bunch of mediocre service we did! The store is new and located in a convenient central ""strip mall."" It's clean because there's nothing really in it that's worthwhile. I think the intention was to be ""high end"" but you can tell by the construction and material selection it's not. The staff is Asian and is pretty much the same as any other typical nail salon I've been to. There's no real massage chairs to enjoy, just a salvage yard pink couch and buckets to stick your feet in. You have to sit at a bar for your manicures, again - not comfortable! The entirety of my services I think they were trying to up sell me to buy all the costume jewelry they had scattered about. The color selection is non-existent, which chipped two days later. I found the experience annoying, uncomfortable and expensive.

I really like this place. They take hygiene very seriously, which is a deciding factor for me. They use foot tubs without the whirlpool jets that trap bacteria, and they use new nail files and buffers each time, which they give you to keep when you're done. The foot file surfaces are also disposable. Besides all that, the staff are really friendly and do great pedicures. Julie is my favorite technician there so far; she does a perfect polish job that lasts for over two weeks, no problem. Overall this is a great little local business that I can highly recommend.

I had a great manicure and pedicure and so did my daughter (7 years old). Gayle was fantastic with both of us! I really loved how they made us both feel special and pampered. It was a special occasion for us, and the whole staff really came through.
Julie did my manicure, and was very quiet, but has a gentle touch, and great eye for detail.
Gayle did my daughters' nails and put us both at ease right from the start.

My boss took our team here after we had finished a large conference as a thank you for our hard work. It was perfect! They were ready for us when we came in, all we had to do was pick out a nail color. They made us feel very relaxed and did a great job on our toes! They knew we had been very busy on our feet for the past couple of months and they made sure to give our feet the TLC they desperately needed. We all left there very happy and two weeks later, I still look like I just had a pedi. Very pleased and can't wait to take my mom and sisters here!

Ok so I've tried to like Embellish, I really have. I used to live around the corner and despite their prices I still didn't mind paying for the convenience/ambiance. But after multiple attempts I have to say their nail technicians are sub-par. They don't do a good job. The worst was the bikini waxing. I went in three times because I kept thinking that the girl was just having a bad day. One time she actually brought the phone into the room because she was ""covering the front desk too."" A little distracting to say the least. I went back to my favorite cheap asian places on Burnet.

Every time I go to Embellish I have a wonderful time and get a great manicure or pedicure or both as well as a fun shopping experience in the boutique. It is a delightful place to go with a group of friends since they have a very relaxed and pleasant environment and expect I will host many girls' outings to this great place. I also hope to get my husband to go sometime as he really needs a pedicure and I think would enjoy all the pampering! The employees are all very friendly and professional and the owners are super and very accomomdating!
I highly recommend Embellish!

I have only been here twice but both times I loved it. The atmosphere is very relaxing and everyone was real nice. All the ladies who work there seemed very professional and they seem to strive to make sure their clients were comfortable. I think this is a great place to go to if you are looking to being pampered.

I have been at Embellish about five times. My first four times were very good! but........... on my 5th time in for a pedicure I found out my nail girl was not in, and I was put with another girl. I was sure my nail tech was out having her baby. It would of been nice to know that she was not going to be there I was on the books and someone could of called. My pedicure was nice, but........... It would of been nice to know that someone I did not know was going to service me. As I was soaking my feet a few of the girls working were talking about paychecks, not getting breaks, and how unfair the owners are being. Not a good sign.

When I walked by this nail salon/boutique, I thought what a CUTE place!! Set up an appt and tried it out - what a mistake! I actually gave it a second chance thinking that I just got a bad nail tech the first time. The second experience was worst than the first! My nail tech cut my nails too short and filed them unevenly. When she started on my french manicure, I thought I was going to be there forever. She spent 15 minutes just trying to put the white tips on my first foot, I bailed her out and told her that I would just pick a solid color. No luck there -polish was put on so thick it dried with ridges and bubbles in it. The staff apologized and said the next time would be free. That's nice and all but I just spent $50 for a pedicure that needed to be redone. That's not right! They got another nail tech to re-do the polish which was a disaster. Now the color was so uneven, streaky and some parts of my nail had no polish. I think the girls that own the place need to get techs that are not doing this ""part time"". That seemed to be the consistent theme of the two that worked on my nails - its a side gig. I feel bad for the brides going in - I would hate to have horrible looking nails on my wedding day!!

I thought it was a strange concept but would give it a shot anyways this last weekend. I was more disappointed than pleasantly surprised. You get a bunch of M&M's to share but how sanitary is that if you don't know who stuck their hands in before you. The place is new and pretty clean but what caught my eye the most was a couch that reminded me of grandmother's. The ""mani-bar"" consisted of people sitting stools to get a manicure which was very uncomfortable and extremely poor ergonomics. But the worst part of it is that I had to sit on the terrible weird pink suede couch and stick my feet some bowls for the pedi. I just don't get it....

I HATE getting my lips and eyebrows waxed, so I'm always a little bit cautious when trying out someone new. Jen gave the absolute best wax that I've ever had!! I usually am sore, swell, and am red for a very long time. I walked out with slight redness that was gone within the half hour, and NO SORENESS. I also went back for a facial (my first one) that was absolutely fabulous. The products that Jen uses are totally organic which in 2008 is the only way to go. I have skin darkening above my lip (caused by hormones) and it was greatly faded after my facial. I can't wait until I get my next pay-check so that I can go back for another facial.
The only negative thing that I have to say is that I wish that they kept the pedicure and manicure tools for returning customers instead of going through so many. They just end up in landfills and I wish that they were a little more environmentally-sensitive! But, that's just my personal opinion.
I love Embellish. It has become the only place that I recommend to all of my girlfriends. Run, don't walk, to see Jen and the other girls!!!

This salon is the cleanest, friendliest, best smelling, and most fun place I?ve ever gotten my nails done! My pedicures last for almost 4 weeks, but I come back more frequently for the stellar services (hands down, Tennille?s foot/hand massages are the best you?ll ever have!!). A plus for me is that they use disposable tools and portable tubs (the most sanitary way to do it!!). Whether I?m in the mood to catch up on the latest celebrity gossip from In Touch, watch classic chic flicks on the big screen, or sip some wine and snack on candy, I always have fun at Embellish! Oh, and they also have the absolute best selection of nail colors (and greeting cards!). Chunky jewelry and trendy hand bags are plentiful, too!
I truly think that a good pedicure is one of the best things in life, and I've found the best ever at Embellish. I drive by the Triangle all the time and had seen the sign and heard about this salon and had to try it. I'd left my last nail tech because of cost and several other reasons, and Taneil has become my new favorite person. She gives amazing pedicures and manicures and does the best hand and foot massages I've ever had. She's kind and easy to talk to and so incredibly talented. It's been two weeks and my toes look like I just walked out of the salon! The shop itself is adorable as well, with comfy pink couches and heated neck wraps and mimosas and the cutest things for sale (which makes it a little dangerous). I've been there twice now and from day one I was treated like a regular. There's no attitude at all in this place. I honestly can't say enough good things about it. Thank you, Embellish, for such amazing pampering!

I had heard a lot of good things about Embellish from friends before I went to check it out myself and the experience still went way beyond my expectations. The decor is cute and fun. The staff is attentive. Becky was as friendly and engaging as she was precise. And I LOVED the boutique items (you can never go wrong with a leopard print luggage tag!) I recommend Embellish to anyone in need of a mani/pedi or just a girly gift for a friend.
