My rating is about 1/2 a star higher than my recent experience at this establishment. To be fair, the redeeming qualities of this place are worth noting and for that, I rounded my rating up versus down. I've never felt compelled to write a Yelp review but as I walked out of this place I knew I had to. I headed in there the other night for a pedi. I was greeted and asked to pick a color as a technician started running water for the foot bath. (Color selection: Meh. Basic but not tragic. I found what I needed but this isn't one of those places that has an endless OPI selection. No Essie. I'd say 1/2 OPI, 1/2 generic salon brand.) THE GOOD: -convenient, clean location -offered a beverage upon sitting down -.good finished product - My toes look pretty. So why 2.5 stars?? The pushy and abrasive boss/manager who is running the place. The TVs are all muted so all you can hear is this woman's voice throughout the salon. When I first heard her persistently trying to up-sell a customer on the paraffin wax upgrades, I thought it was a bit obnoxious but gave her a pass.. A girl's gotta eat, right? When she loudly approached my technician griping something in their native tongue, I surmised that maybe he was doing something wrong and she was simply correcting his technique. But then things started getting WEIRD.. Paraffin wax lady got up to pay. Handed boss/manager a credit card. Bad move. Boss/manager launches into a whole spiel about how they prefer cash -that it costs them $ every time they swipe a card- and if she recalled, she DID inform the lady when she called to schedule her appt that ThEY PREFER CASH and to please prepare for that. The lady apologizes, says she didn't have time to go to ATM but can tip in cash. I'm thinking WTF?!! I'm appalled at how this woman is being treated ESPECIALLY after offering to tip out in cash. Plus, I planned on paying THE SAME WAY. Given the dozens of nail services I've had over the years, 90% have been paid for the same way - service on card, tip in cash. NEVER had a problem doing this. When sh*t starts to get stressful while my feet are being rubbed, I have a problem with that. When boss/manager finished the checkout, she proceeded to replace the technician who had been working on my feet. She tried to sell me on a mani. What about eyebrows? I'm really good at waxing, I do legs, upper lip, and body waxing if you're interested, we can head to the back after I finish painting your toes. For the love of God, I'm in the home stretch of my pedi and just want to finish catching up on emails the way I had been for the last 15 minutes. ENOUGH with the hard sell. By the time I made it to the drying station, I set my purse down beside a sign that said "Our technicians prefer to be paid in CASH. Thank you" It was time for me to pay. Oh boy, this should be fun. As I handed her my card, I received the same icy spiel about the evil credit card companies. I took my card back and handed her the cash tip. **This review has become longer than I intended so I will spare you the uncomfortable details of the personal questions boss/manager asked me in an awkward attempt to make small talk. I believe in being polite but sometimes I just want to check my emails in peace and appreciate when the technician can pick up on basic social cues and let the conversation rest. Bottom line: Credit card processing fees are simply the price of doing business. (I say this as a small business owner who has experience paying these fees.) Pedicures should be relaxing, not riddled with stress. I don't expect to be treated like the Queen of England but there is a modicum of customer service that I do expect. With a nail salon on every corner, I will NOT be returning to this place nor would I recommend it to anyone else.

20. MELROSE DAY SPA
This spot is not anywhere near my neighborhood but I have continued coming here since I first discovered them a few months ago. At other places its hit or miss depending on your technician, not here! They consistently do a great job every time I get a mani and pedi. I like how they take their ti…
To me, when it comes to mani/pedis, I feel that all nail salons should get the basic job done. Toe and finger nails painted- check. No cuts- check. Clean- check However what makes a nail salon stand out to me, is the way that I am treated. I sometimes feel that certain salons rush you through, or you get the sneaky suspicion that you are not being treated as an highly valued customer. Well- that is NOT the case wtih Nailicious. First of all, everyone was friendly, and I feel that I was treated as someone that was doing them a favor by bringing my business there, versus the other way around. 2nd- their massage chair is the BEST! Not your regular chair- it messages the back and there is also a part that messages the back of your upper thighs (it is in the seat). I guess a hamstring message- whatever it was, it felt great! In addition to the chair message- the foot/leg message and the hand message that come with the standard mani/pedi- is awesome! Not some rushed 2 sec deal, but a pretty good somewhat long message. So all it all, I LOVED it- I will go back again and have no problem spending my money there. Also, they waxed my eyebrows, and they look great. I wanted threading- but call ahead because I don't think their threader is there all the time.
It's rare that you will ever see me give a nail salon 5 stars, but The Nail Spa deserves every single star. My first experience here was when I came in to get my eyebrows waxed. Not sure what all the lady did or put on post-waxing, but whatever it was made the redness go away faster than usual and I didn't break out, which is usually what happens. At this point I've had my eyebrows waxed 3 times, had 3 manicures and 2 pedicure. I don't use their organic nail polish (I use OPI), but they are great with shaping and cleaning your nails and unlike with other manicures from other places where the paint starts to chip after day 2, The nail spa manicures last for days and days. The first manicure didn't chip until the 7th or 8th day and even at day 13/14, my nails still looked really good. Luckily this place is right by my work. When I'm not getting calgel done, I will definitely be getting my mani/pedi services done here.
I've never really had a problem with this salon until yesterday. I had a male tech named Andy. I asked him if he could do my nails a certain way and I showed him a picture of how I wanted them. He did not say one word and looked unpleased with my request. He rushed the whole time and did not do my nails how I requested. Another thing that really bothered me was the fact he cut the side of my thumb with the nail-filer because of how hard he was filing my nail that it cut my skin. He hurt me a couple of times with the drill until I pulled back my hand because of the pain then he was careful. He was rushing so much that he put cuticle oil on my hands and nails then ran a hot rag over them and my nails got jacked up because they weren't dry and ready. So he had to do the last clear coat over on both my hands. And then charged me $45 last time I'll be going there. My thumb is stil in pain of how raw it is.
I really really REALLY wanted ZAZA to be my 'it' place for nails, as I work in the area and it is super convenient. Sadly, it just isn't gonna happen. I am not one that needs a lot of fussing, so I wasn't really bothered by the somewhat disinterested / mildly rude receptionist (hey it was a Friday night and I was their last appointment, I can relate.) BUT, I was annoyed when my pricey mani-pedi was sloppy and included zero cuticle care treatment. The atmosphere was "OK" but it really felt like they were trying incredibly hard to be 'urban chic' but not executing it. All in all , it was just a disappointment. Looks like I will have to find somewhere else in the neighborhood.
I have never written a bad review ever but just wanted to let you know went for a mani pedi and eyebrow wax. I thought the mani per was mediocre at best. But the eyebrow wax was awful. I had to go back in for her to clean up under the brows after seeing it in the light. There is no extra light in the room for her to see. I came home and still had to clean up underneath and pencil in on top where she took a chunk out of the middle. Now I have to wait for it to grow back. I will say the place is clean and decorated nice. But the work that they did was over priced and shoddy. Just saying, and I repeat don't get your eyebrows waxed there
Everyone at TN Nails is a expert in pedicures. I've never had a pedicure last as long from anywhere else. Instead of those broken down massage chairs with recirculating water, they have comfy recliners and individual tubs. The owner is a perfectionist and will check the others' work and give direction if they missed something. They also have a private room for ladies who are pregnant. I took one of my friends for a pedicure a couple of weeks before she was due, and they put us in this room where is was quieter and more comfortable for her and made her feel real special. You won't be sorry if you go to TN Nails!
I have been coming here for at least 5 years. I have gotten my nails done at other places over the years, either out of town or if Jenny Nails was too busy. I will never go anywhere else now. I have never had any separation with the nails, like other places, and my eyebrows always look perfect. The girl that does my nails, her mother does pedicures. I hadn't seen her for a pedicure in over a month and I had developed an ingrown toenail. She got it out with very little pain and I never have ingrown toenails when I get pedicure's from her on a regular basis. I would recommend this place all day.
I couldn't believe I found an affordable spa package here. This is more of a European waxing and nail salon, more of a boutique salon like you'd see on the West Coast, it's not huge but it's very chic. I came here for a massage and mani-pedi, facial, and had my eyebrows waxed. It was nice to get everything done at once and the great prices here are crazy good! I've never found a more luxurious spa atmosphere at prices like these. The girls that did the work on me were very good, gentle touch, very soothing and relaxing. I could not believe how good this place was - it's my new go-to spa.
I first went to this salon for a gel manicure before my half marathon (my tradition before every race). Although I was impressed with the salon and customer service, I was thrilled with my manicure. The tech did her best, it did come out as I had expected. I was so impressed with the customer service (and how long the gel stayed on without a single chip), that I decided to come back for a gel mani/pedi. I have never had such a perfect manicure before! Do yourself a favor and GO to this salon for your next nail service. You can't beat this level of quality, cleanliness, or professionalism!
