Excellent Gel manicure, My friend insisted to bring me here, so I went there on Thursday for the first time and had a fantastic overall experience. They charged $30 for a Gel Manicure, which I think is reasonable. Hey, by the way, I got a bonus too: celebrity sighting. I swore I saw Renee Zellweger, even though we did not ask for picture, because all people show the respect for her privacy. Great service, nice & polite staff.

To set the record straight here and I am embarrassed to admit: I was walking around town with ruined polished toes for about four weeks. The summer is coming and hectic and I had no time for a pedi and short on money. But with the hot day like yesterday I found myself at this spa. It is hidden away next to a Fire Station and had no parking which was a bad thing, but I saw it when walking out the Wholefood across from the street.
Due to my bad fortune lately, I cut down and do not often go for mani/pedis about 6 mons. Yesterday, however, I decided to pamper myself and to hike out here and give them a whirl.
Worth every mile and my precious penny.
I walked in around 3:30 on a hot Wed afternoon and opted for a mani/pedi. The massage chairs for the pedi was a great bonus, and between that and the leg massage, it was all I could do to stay awake, I was so relaxed and content. Very impressed when before she did my manicure (she talked me into doing the new OPI gel), she cleaned and sanitized the pedi tub. Bonus point here. The manicure was well done too, and I loved the hot towel and hand massage. While I was at the drying station, praises of the waxing skill of the girl here dropped into my ear and I decided to help my diet this week by skipping a lunch for an eyebrow wax. I tell you: I felt great I made the right decision. I usually mess up a nail within minutes of them being done, but that didn't happen here. Even after plenty of typing today, they still look perfect as the girl guaranteed.
I may just have to treat myself to this more often, if my fortune changes next week.

I just moved to Boston and lived in Downtown, so I know next to nothing about the area. Thus, I was petrified to get my nails done because I don't know anyone in this area, but my colleagues were great and gave great referral about this salon, especially about the Opi Gel Axxiom, which it's the only salon know how to do it in the area.
This place is fantastic. Chi is my new savior!!! She was SO precise and meticulous and explained absolutely everything what I need to know. The moment I walked in, I felt comfortable and totally at ease. The place is nice and clean, with Flat screen TV (make it look upscale, but the salon is a little small in area). I had the OPI gel nails and eyebrow wax. They were fantastic. I walked out happy and was invigorated.
I waited two weeks as the girl guaranteed to see if my nails chip with this new OPI gel Nail, but amazingly, it's not. Needless to say, I found my spot in this new city.

I am no stranger to mani/pedi. However, recently I heard lost of people mentioned about ?opi axxium gel nails? and want to try it, but my regular spot know nothing about it. From my friends? words or mouth, I found and came to this gem spa on the Hill.
I considered myself as a loyal freak, since I only come to my regular places, but this new found spa definitely changed my taste for beauty spa.
The place is new and clean, just renovated I guessed, with new pedicure chairs. The best thing of these chairs is they are pipeless, so you will not have to be afraid of the residual water from the one before.
The girl did my M&P using the new opi axxium gel nails and promised if there?s any chip with my nails within two weeks, she will do it free for me.
The service was amazing and very relaxing, she did the best job and my nails look fabulous.
I am not used to write things on internet, but after two weeks of constantly working and even exercise, my nails did not have a chip. I love the new opi axxium gel nails and the great job the girl did. I have to say what I think and recommend the place.

I love this place and it's right next to my school!! I was getting sick of the high price local nail places near my apt, so I decided to look for a convenient salon near my school.
Beantown Spa wow me! Parking is a great challenge here on the weekdays, but I have no problem since I walk to school everyday, but street parking was available in the afternoon. The place itself is a bit small compare to other nail salon on Newsbury street.
They are extremely sanitary and autoclave their tools. They also use hot towels and lots of extras to make it a relaxing experience. The nail salon is cozy and looks a lot like a house. The restroom is even smell like aroma and extremely clean that make me feel bad for my own.
I am being extremely picky about my french manicures and used to criticized whoever do it, but again, Chi, the tiny girl, wowed me. I thoroughly enjoyed the hand/arm massage and I was immediately put to ease. The girl really know what she's doing and pay such attention to details. Pedicure here had been equally relaxing and I love the hot towel session (even when they scrub my feet and I squirm because I'm ticklish). Overheard about their waxing praises from their fans, especially Brazilian wax, so it's in my ""to try"" in the summer.
Service is superb and I've never had to wait long (if I forget to make an appointment). This is my new found favorite nail salon!

Encouraged by friends and great reviews, I came to Beantown Spa last week before Thanks Giving while I was in the city for my husband?s family event. I would be happy to say that it was a really great nice experience. The people there was extremely friendly, professional, and attentive. My manicurist, I forgot to ask for her name since it was so crazy and crowded that day, was so sweet and attended to details, and she massaged my arms and hands for a good, long time even people were sitting for their turn. All of the tools were sterilized and she washed her hand and sanitized her hands before she did mine. The place itself was small, but nicely organized and clean. As many people mentioned, OPI and Essie colors are available. I really, really enjoyed my experience here, and I will most certainly come back again if I am in town

Best nail place I've found in Boston, and reasonably priced! Basic mani-pedi for $35 :)
With the recommendation of my friend, whom had a little Nail party for all of her bridesmaids here, I came in to get my wedding nails done along with 6 other BFFs on a late Friday afternoon, because the place is convenient for my friends. It was packed during this rush hours, but we had no choice, but picking this time for our reservations. Surprisingly, they got to us quickly. They did not rush through our pedicures even though people were waiting and stacking up. Nice long massage for my feet! I got french tip for my fingers and toes, and I've got to say this is one of the BEST manicure & pedicure I've had: They didn't cut my cuticles too much, shaped my nails nicely, and the french tip was done PERFECT!!
They are very CLEAN and take their time. You actually feel like your getting a quality mani/pedi.
I am happy I made this choice.

While I attended a charity event in Boston, I got a gift certificate for full service from this spa from the organizer. I am very rare to go to the new salon that I am not used to, but I came to this spa anyway because I was in the city. First of all, the place is small compared to my regular spa. However, the service is what make this spa outstanding. I have to say is they are as good as people praised. The girl, who waxed my eyebrow and Bikini, did a great job. It was quick and clean and she knew what she did, so It minimized the pain level to the degree of almost painless . The Manicure and Pedicure are just the same as I got from my place and they lasted for almost two weeks without visible chip. Although, the place is small to my standard, but it's clean and very well organized. One last thing, They used the ""Purell"" sanitizer before every customer and it's a big plus from me due to the news of ""H1N1"" flu lately.

Due to my constraint budget and with many things to support, I'm not someone who will gets nails regularly, but I go to any nail spa a few times a year when I really need to or for special occasion. I went to this nail spa without much expectation like others when I had to,
but I left with a smile on my face. The prices are normal at Beantown as others I have been to, but the best thing was definitely the service. Everyone was so nice and really dedicated to making a relaxing experience for me.
They brought me coffee,which they helped me to buy it from the Starbuck store nearby, when I rushed in & did my perfect nails and let me sit on the massage chair sipping coffee more than long enough for them to dry-- it was so nice not to be hustled out before I was ready to go.
The girl, whom did a perfect eyebrow wax for me, was so nice and she even did my lip wax free. This place is top notch for waxing from people's praise while I'm there, so I am glad I did. I'll definitely be back, of course when I have to.

We moved to Boston just two weeks, so it's a must for us to find a great regular nail salon. We decided to try Beantown Nails spa based on the great reviews on Citysearch and others. We had a fantastic experience here and I think it will be my regular place now, because the Brow wax and Nails were so great (see below).
The place looks new and clean and have no odor like other nail spas. The staff is friendly and professional. I'm tired of going to places where the staff is snotty or where you can tell they are talking about you in front of your face (because you don't speak the language). Every person I talked with was really nice.
I didn't get the name of the little lady who did my brow wax , but, wow, she was so good . I'm always afraid with a new place that I'll get burned, itchy or walk out with those upside down half circles or triangle (you know what I mean) from people who don't know what they are doing. She made a very nice arch, and trim them nicely and I don't think my brows have looked this good in years! One more thing, I was lucky to get the eyebrow, because this little lady was just back from her vacation, so they did not offer waxing for those time. Just in at the right time.
I got the regular mani/pedi for $35 with another girl, A good one at a reasonable price. What is special is they used the hot towel with a pleasant smell to clean my leg and hand before massaging. It soothed and gave a relax feeling.
I don?t want to say many things or say it for my friends, other than you should try for yourself.
