The woman who did my nails was OK. She upsold and tried to get me to get the "spa deluxe package," which was lotion, an aloe vera gel scrub, and "foot mask." I found the last bit funny because as an initial precursor to the foot mask, they used a handheld cheese grater. YES, it was ACTUALLY a cheese grater, not a similar version they actually use in spas - this grater is even sold in the Walmart Regal Nails is located in. I declined, obviously. All I wanted was a manicure-pedicure, which she informed me it was $5 extra for french. So she did the white tips first, and then did the color - however, it wasn't until she was completely done with one foot that I realized the color she used was... um... questionable. Translucent cherry red... I politely asked if she had a less red color, something a little more pink. She said "No. this isn't red.." and continued on. So for my manicure, I asked her to just use clear. She spent the next ten minutes INSISTING that I do not get a french manicure on my nails, because "nail color come off easy," and that I should get gel instead. I refused. The manicure she did took all of one minute, was splotchy, and uneven. When I paid, she also informed me that it was actually $10 extra for french - and when I asked why, she said "$5 for mani and pedi each." Overall, not the worst, but DEFINITELY not the best, and definitely not worth $37 for a 30 minute mani-pedi. I'll try elsewhere next time.

I have been going to Wilshire Nail & Spa for a few years and today was my last time going there. I loved this place because of the SNS natural nail but its not worth it. Donna is the owner. She recently hired a young girl and boy. The new girl did my nails once and it was so painful!!! When I left there my nails were hurting for about two days. The next time I went, the boy did my nails and he is horrific!!! How can you work at a nail shop and not know how to paint nails? He painted my nails like a three year old. My last and final experience was when my boyfriend and I went there to get pedicures. As we were getting our pedicures we noticed that they were using the same tools on both of our feet at the same time! The tools were not clean. Once our pedicures were finished, they did not clean the tools, they used on us. I observed them putting those same tools back up in a jar to use for the next person who walked through the door. It was disgusting!! I expressed my concerns and experience with Donna and she totally ignored me and did not express any care about how I felt or my experience. She brushed me off and did nothing! I will never return and I encourage you not to go there. There are plenty of other choices in the Orlando/Metrowest area.
Wow! As soon as I look in the mirror after service-full amazement! From the customer service level, to the look and feel of my hair:) I am soo pleased to have a stylist as Ana(the owner). This salon holds such a diverse of customers from all nationalities. Jireh Salon knows how to manage your hair and the products are great and inexpensive-so is the service fee-very reasonable....If you were to take the name of the salon "Jireh"-you know you are in good hands-Jehovah Jireh(my perception)-we as customers have to analyze who we let in our hair-a person with not soo good energy then you mite get a baad hair experience; on the other hand, a person with a good energy then a wonderful experience you experience......Jus think about who has been in you're hair-analyze them, hmmmm. In addition, I have been in Orlando for quite some time and this year is when I finally found a stylist who truly cares bout my hair instead of $.....Very happy and pleased with the service-plus a little advice from Ana about life in general is very warm taking to the soul.... Sincerely, Christina
I loved the salon itself however they are a bit too expensive I believe that's because of the atmosphere. I have been a Dr Phillips resident for 25+ years. I have learned that sometimes places have a hoity toity feel. This is onw of those places. This place is very beautiful, great design, very calming feeling that comes just from the design. However I can get the same services at many of the other local salons. I wasn't happy about them not even removing the calisus on my heals. Every time I get pedicures I always have had my calisus removed as a part of my regular pedicures. If you want to pay for environment this place is 5 stars, if you are paying for quality go else where. I also grabbed a book of services when leaving and saw that I could have chosen ANY of their pedi services as a new customer. One of their first questions was whether I had been there before or not. I told them no, they made no effort to info me on their special. That made me upset I felt they had an opportunity to impress me however they completely overlooked their opportunity for great customer service.
My mother an I normally go to the Escape Day spa for pedicures, it is expensive, but years ago when we started going the service was worth it (it is not anymore), we were apprehensive about trying anywhere else, but Escape is closed right now for repairs (I hope for thier sake, a total overhaul, since nothing in there works anymore), and we decided to try Jade nails acrossed thje street - all I can say is that I will never return to Escape. Everyone was super friendly, I recieved the best pedicure that I have ever had, and it was much cheaper than Escape. They serve wine with your pedicure, and massage your head neck, and shoulders while your nails dry. Everything about the experience is totally indulgent, except the price (and they are not snooty). I can't wait until I need another pedicure, but they did such a great job, it will probably be a while! ((By the way, I am a licenced nail tech, so can recognize great work, and have never left a review for any other nsil salon, but love this place!)
Completely different experience than the previous poster. We are new to the area and I have tried two other local nail salons; I felt that the others rushed me through the service and were anxious to move on to the next person. The owner and staff were courteous, helpful, and did a good job. The salon was clean and the tools they used came from an autoclave. There was a wait for walk-ins on a Saturday, but that is to be expected. It is not "upscale" or super posh... not a luxury spa by any means, but the massage chairs were new and worked well and the services were good. If I had one criticism, the polish selection was not geared to my tastes (more neutral OPI and Essie colors); however, next time, I will just bring colors from home. There is another salon right around the corner (Central Nails) in the Publix plaza, which I intended on trying, but I am not sure I will bother.
I love this place ! I go there once a week and I must admit that it's my favorite salon in central Florida. The service is great and my hair and eyebrows come out looking amazing ! The workers here are all like family. They make you feel welcome and so everything in their needs to exceed and over achieve the customers expectation. I always see customer that have Been with them for years still saying that have not been any happier with their hair. Best of all their prices are great ! I've proven myself that the products that they sell in the salon are cheaper than outside in other salons or product stores. For example I use Moroccanoil products (love them) and before I bought then at the salon I checked the price in the outlets and they were twice as expensive then they were at the salon. Would definitely recommend to all ladies and guys ! They have a great barber there now !
I love Image Nails. Trina has been doing my nails for 5 years! I have followed her from her original place of work to now her very own business! I would follow her anywhere! You aren't visiting a business, you are visiting family. They remember names, faces and preferences. Everyone who works there is caring and friendly, as well as extremely professional and clean. Image Nails opens a new set of supplies, which includes pumice, clippers, files, etc for each client. They have several different types of pedicures and they offer complimentary beverages and snacks too! I can't say enough wonderful things about Image Nails. They are centrally located near all the Orlando attractions and Resorts. Great for tourists visiting International Drive, Sea World, Universal Studios, and Walt Disney World!
Angels nails is the best & I mean best place in Orlando, FL to get your nails done. Not only are he designs one of a kind & beautiful to look at, the staff/nail technicians are all very nice & will greet you on a first-name basis. The prices are just right, whether your getting a regular pedicure, new full-set, fill-in or a design. I have gone in to get an eye brow wax because I messed them up, & no matter how bad they look she knows how to fix them so no one could even tell. Angels nails also do eye lashes & waxing!! I just love everything about this salon & you will too if you give it a try, you won't be disappointed...I've sent 5 of my co-workers there & Angels nails is now there new nail salon.
I found Tammy's at the end of a very footsore holiday. The salon is very comfortable, clean and relaxing. The staff are very friendly, polite and my technician was very careful and kind. This is the most relaxing nail bar I have ever been to and the pedicure and manicure with liquid gel nails definitely the best I have had anywhere. Prices are very competitive when compared with the hotel based tourist spas and day spas in Orlando. Most importantly though there are no face masks being worn by the staff and no foul smell of chemicals as you get with so many nail bars these days which are using nasty and dangerous chemicals. Will definitely be going back when I am next in Orlando. Highly recommended.
