Awful. I will not be returning. I have been doing shellac for a while now and decided to try this place. I got a shellac manicure and when I left they weren't shiny. However, I know when they put lotion on and cuticle oil, the shine isn't there right away. I went home and washed my hands, no shine. 2 nails were shiny, the rest are completely dull. You can see it in the photo. I looked at them this morning and they're already crack and one has chipped. I called to see if I could come back in and show them/get a refund and their response is that they don't do refunds because they already did the work but they can redo it.... Most places that "do the work" and the customer is not happy, they refund you. Needless to say, I'm not going back. I had a whopping 6 people tell me they look awful today at work. Great.
First and last time into this nail salon. Myself and 2 of my good friends decided to pamper ourselves and get pedicures...seems fun right?! Yeah not this experience! We walked in and they started one of us right away.....then slowly one by one finished other two....one worker + 6 feet = sitting in the nail salon entirely too long. There was so much miscommunication with the staff and customers nobody got what they wanted or what they paid for. One of my friends left there with 2 bottles of lotion all over his legs and more dead skin then what he had walked in there with no work done to his calluses or cuticles trimmed or anything. I myself wanted to get a fun flowery design on my big toe for spring and yeah it looks so much worse then if I would have done it myself. If you're looking for a quick half way done pedicure this is the perfect place for you!
Love these friendly and professional staff at Aleena! Convenient location near Johnston, Grimes, and Granger!
I just had my second pedi at Aleena Nails. Everything is great. The hot towels and hot rocks feel wonderful. She did a wonderful massage if my legs and feet. Was accurate and painless while trimming Nails and working on cuticles. Will be my salon of choice from now on.
Anna did my full set. I was in a hurry and she got the whole set done fast and they look beautiful! Anna was pleasant with conversation and did my nails exactly as I wanted. Will definitely be coming back.
Got tips on yesterday. Am not a regular at this so don't have a lot to compare it to, but I'm pretty sure dinging the cuticles on every other finger is not supposed to happen. Am treating an infection on the one that she took a chunk out of so it bled. Nails are super thick with the gel stuff, and the ends are barely finished. Won't go back. Ever. The nails look nice enough, but not worth the pain and angst. Wouldn't recommend this salon to anyone.
I told them not short, she hurt me multiple times bc she cut my nails too short. I just finished with the massage and I am so relaxed I can write this review. The massaage was awful. I The lady kept her stupid blue gloves on so the friction was awful. I'm paying 45$ for a service and she's skimping on the lotion. She used the hot stones and basically just glided them on the surface of my skin. She didn't properly clean the lotion off my toe nails so I wonder long this pedicure is not going to last. Now, my pedicure stopped so she can start on someone elses feet and not finish painting. Someone else is coming to finish. I get pedicures done religiously every 2 weeks so I am pretty seasoned to make adequate judgements.
