Being a licensed esthetician for 3+ years, I wanted to be able to offer more than just skin services to the guests, staying at two high end resorts in Scottsdale, that I work for as an "On Call" spa service provider. Since I already had my AZ esthetician's license, and having already gone through the chemistry, anatomy and biology for my first license, I was eligible for the 10 week nail licensing course, which literally let me finish in half the actual time required.The time just flew!!!The curriculum is fascinating. The course is not difficult and only requires a deep and true desire to learn and excel. Instructors make sure you are given all the information that you will be tested on and its only a matter of buckling down and absorbing it all. Miss Linda, the owner/instructor, is an expert in her field, truly inspiring and always available to answer questions, or to demonstrate yet again, a procedure one might be having difficulty with.I loved interacting with my fellow students and developing relationships with returning clients. I would do this all over again - and would truly recommend this school and program to anyone considering a future in performing nails services. As with any school or program - you will only get out of it - what you put into it! If you dont take it seriously or anything else in life for that matter - then, your failure to learn or to access the potential of it all - lies on your shoulders.Tuition is very affordable and totally earned back within months of finishing school if you are serious about getting licensed and employed in a timely manner.I am busy with work beyond words- specializing in natural nail care services and treatments, nail repair, and LED gel polish applications- I can only say Thank You to the entire McKew family for affording me this opportunity to advance myself and my services rendered.

It's a really nice salon... But... I have had my WORST mani/pedi's here! On two occasions the tech filed straight through my nails, into the nailbed. Severe pain and bleeding. I had to take pain meds for several days, the damage was extensive. After the first time I didn't return for over a year. Finally I did give them another chance because they're so close to home (I wish I hadn't) and the pedicure was great, but the newbie tech (she seemed to have NO training whatsoever) put so many thick coats of polish, it never dried and smeared off. For my manicure the tech decided to dremel off the remaining polish around the edges, instead of simply using a qtip and acetone. Once again, the filing was so aggressive, it punched through my nail. More pain and bleeding. I don't know why Presto has such perfect reviews, every time I've been there was a disaster, and now I get to spend another year growing out all this damage from a single visit to Presto. My mistake... Never again.
I chose Devine's because of the great reviews and want to thank the woman who wrote about her boyfriends experience. I'm a guy who decided to grow my hair a little longer and my wife liked it. Well, now I need a stylist -- not just another average franchise clipper. What a pleasant, productive experience. I called this morning for a same-day appointment and Linda happened to answer. She asked me what I needed before answering my request. Upon hearing my story, she said she would be available at 3:15 today. There is enough information about the "quaint" quarters and friendly/professional staff, which I found to be true. Here's the deal, this salon knows how to make a guy feel welcome. And I loved the attention and wonderful service I received. Linda is great and I couldn't be happier with the results.Give this place a try, men. We already know how much the women love it.Thank you , Linda. See you in 6-7 weeks!
I love this place and recently (w/in the past 6 months ) I switched from acrylic to gel and let me just say I wished I would've done it sooner!!Here is what I've noticed:1. The gel grows out with my nails .. in other words when the corners of my natural nail starts to curl the gel adheres to it so NO LIFTING !!2. I have gone up to 4 weeks between fills w/no breaking (however I try and go every 3 weeks) or chipping! 3. The gel shine generally last 3 weeks for me! (I wear gloves when I clean) 4. The color selection is unlimited .. I used to wear only pink and white acrylic 5. The price comparison to other places maybe a lil higher ($5??) and it's worth it because other places are not using the same quality product ( I've tried multiple places cuz I'm frugal!) The owner, Kim, is a perfectionist and does top notch work and it shows in the daily compliments I get on my nails !!
They were friendly and cheap but that's about where the good ends. I asked for a set of stiletto nails and left with rounded nails. The girl who was doing them kept scratching her skin and then touching my hands without any sort of sanitizer. At one point she started bleeding, washed her hands, then went right back to doing my nails, didn't put a bandaid on or anything. My polish is dented and chipping, some of my nails look like they already need to be filled and after not even 6 hours, one of my tips snapped off! I'll be going back to get it fixed but never again after that. Spend the money on a decent manicure & don't even waste your time here.
I LOVE this nail salon! I've been going here for almost 5 years now. It's a family-owned business by wife and husband Steve and Ann. They're the cutest couple and really cater to their customers. They've become somewhat family to me. In fact, I've grown to become very close to them that during my trip to northern California, I attended their daughter's graduation at UC Berkeley. They're a hardworking family, and the fact that my nails are divine is an added plus. Highly recommend. Cheers to Ann and Steve!
The other two reviews really surprised me. It's the only place I will ever go...they are so nice to me, they always take their time to give me (in my opinion) the best manis and pedis I've ever gotten. Mind you, this is not a five star resort. So if you're used to that, a nail salon in a plaza is probably not going to be up to standard. I have to say though, it's pretty close. Good selection of colors. Nice massage chairs. Great prices. Talented staff. I don't go elsewhere.
Had seen some good reviews on Yelp so I called. Thought the guy who answered was rude but I still decided to go. I was shocked that their tools were not packaged. There was no way for me to know if they in fact were sterilized. The technician used a torn piece of paper towel to wipe my nails. Every place I've ever been uses a towel. She did do a fine job and to get a shellac mani for $25 was a good deal.
Absolutely Fabulous service. A little pricey but so very worth it Laura was so awsome took her time made sure everything was good and threw in a hand massage at the end. Made the money I spent seem like nothing. And they also sell purses, sun glasses, nail polish among other accesories. Also provide coffee, water, and a snack while you wait. Very professional I will deffinately be a return coustomer.
The lady that did my nails was very personable. This is the first place where I found that did 3d nail art. I liked the passion she had for her job. She invited creativity. Can't wait to go back to get my nails done again. Very great price. Nails and art for 47 dollars. Great place
