I've gotten a pedicure twice here. I've been happy both times as they've lasted a long time (3+ weeks). I had a french tip manicure done the 1st time I was there. I wasn't as impressed with that as it lasted less than one week. The massage chairs are great and they sell you the file and and buffer at your first visit (around $1) then you can bring it back. No worrying about catching some funky nail fungus. I'll keep going back back for the pedicures and maybe try a different manicure next time. I'd skip the french tip one.

I'm sad to say I didn't realize how bad this place was for quite a few visits. I kept getting solar nails, and they would turn yellow, start cracking, break off. As soon as they were done, you could see bubbles in the nail. And the nail would look dull, not shiny when I left. Then I would ask for a 'back-fill' and they would give excuses why I shouldn't get a back-fill- they would just fill the bottom and paint the top. I've since learned - from the salon that fixed my nails- that they were not putting on the white solar powder on the tips- so of course they couldn't do a back fill, I'm not sure they know how. And the bubbles would appear because the solar powder was very poor quality. And because they were not using the white powder, I was essentially getting ripped off. Do not use this salon! They also had people not licensed removing my nails or doing pre-fill filing. Right now I'm looking at my beautiful white and pink, strong nails and wonder why I put up with the yellowing nails for so long. I feel like an idiot- don't be taken like I was. They kept saying the reason my nails were yellowing was because I was tanning- never before or since had my nails yellowed like that from tanning. I'm sorry I had to give this one star- I would give them NO star. Go to the other nail salon in Forest Grove (don't use the one in Cornelius either- they let unlicensed people murder your nailbed too). Also, when I had my nails removed by them, the little tray that they use was filthy. They would clean the top and sides of it.
