Raising the bar

I had my french mani/pedi done at TipToes nearly a month ago. The service was tea by my side and chick flick on the flat screen across from me! I had one of the best foot massages too. When it was all done, I couldn't help but keep looking at my french mani/pedi and how perfect and natural they looked! I'm quite far from San Francisco and had to settle for a nail spa near me a month later. I'm very particular with services and notice where spas or salons usually leave me wanting. I have to say, TipToes really raised the bar with service, experience, and quality of the final products --my tips and toes! By the way, I love the music they play there too.

Best Pedicure and Wonderful Experience

I am thrilled to have found TipToes. I visited the spa for the first time yesterday for a mani/pedi and had a great experience. Everyone was genuinely friendly and easy-going. The kind owner, Howard, brought me a nice cold drink, and there were plenty of new magazines to skim through. I relaxed immediately after snuggling into the comfy chairs for my pedicure.

The spa attendant's work was excellent. At most salons I've visited recently, the attendants are in a hurry to finish so that they can churn through more clients. My TipToes attendant was quite the opposite - she was very thorough and gentle and spent time massaging, scrubbing and pampering me. The results were lovely. Not only did it feel good, but it also looked great. In fact, this was one of the best pedicures I've had in a long time. I was so pleased with the work that I stayed for a manicure. And at their very reasonable prices, I can afford to visit often.

I can't wait to go back!

Best Pedicure

Got the Pedicure plus and it was an awesome experience. The warm paraffin sealed the deal for me. My feet and toes never felt so soft. I will definitely return. You must get the warm paraffin ... they come in individual bags so you don't have to share the bin with other people.

Fantastic ... must check out

I absolutely enjoyed my services at Tiptoes. I tried the mani/pedi plus and when that turned out wonderfully ... I went ahead and did some waxing instead of running across town to see my usual waxer. It was a gamble but I wanted to find a place where I can get all my things done at one place. Yes ... I finally found my place. I've tried here and there but never quite found the right one stop shop .... until now ... yes! My nails look really good and it's been a week and my mani is still intact and my toes looks damn good. My waxing experience was excellent ... a great surprise. Eyebrows look perfect and I tell you I've had a couple of terrible experiences so I was quite unsure to try. I'm happy I did.
Tiptoes is wonderful ... you should check it out.

Most perfect nail spa in the neighborhood

I love this place and must spread the joy to others. I had my nails ""did"" and my ""yoohoo"" jazzed up ... end result ... perfect! I heard from a co-worker about this great find and was told over and over ... you must try. Finally, I did and loved it. Tiptoes had me at hello .... great customer service, service excellent, and it's just a really nice peaceful place to spend a nice afternoon, morning, evening ... whatever time you desire. Tiptoes is the place to be - for sure.

The Best for sure!

I love Tiptoes ... I surely do! I've been going to tiptoes for the last few months and everytime i've had superb customer service AND they do a really wonderful job on my nails and my waxing. I usually get my brazilian done from someone else but she's on maternity leave so one day when I was there for my regular mani/pedi, I decided to try Kathy. The owners rave about her so I said why not??? We'll I'm so glad I did. Sorry to my old waxer but Kathy won me over. I've been getting brazilians done for quite sometime and it's never a comfortable thing for me to do. But Kathy has made that task a bit easier. Not only is she painless BUT QUICK which is GREAT! Done in just a few and looks good as new ;) Ohhh I thank Tiptoes ... I love it there ... always a treat. Parking always a plus and ohh so close by.

This place is great for guys who like there nails done

Yeah, I know, metro-whatever. I like my nails smooth and cleaned up. This place did the works, massage, tea, heated neck wraps, flat screen tv's... i loved it!! I don't get to be pampered as often as i would like, but when i do, i like to try out new places, thats how i found this place, TipToes on Citysearch. I haven't been let down or pointed in the wrong direction and since the review thing is the thing to do, i wanted to say thank you Tiptoes. I'll be coming back real soon.

Lovely local nail salon

I finally got a chance to go there after they opened a few months ago. Staff is very friendly and kind. The pedicure chairs are comfy. They have all kinds of special pedicures I can't wait to try.

Oh yeah!

Had to get a manicure and pedicure before I leave for my business trip. My nails look good, cuticles trimmed well, and nails buffed to a shine. I am a guy who is a fanatic about my nails. PLUS my girl likes clean immaculate hands/feet/nails so it's a must! Tiptoes did a great job and I will be back. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 just because it's not in my neighborhood but it's well worth the 10-15 minute drive if that. And I like that it has it's own parking lot. Works for me. Owners were very friendly and let me watch football - what more can a guy ask.

Had a blast

We had a party at tiptoes and we all had a blast! It was easy to set up. We brought food, wine and a dvd movie ... my girls and I had an awesome time. It couldn't have been any easier. The owners were great and customer service was excellent. We weren't rushed out of there and the ladies did great on all our service. Plus I got a free mani as the host of the party ... yay!

Myself and one guy friend and a girl friend decided to try out tiptoes a few weeks ago. We all had a manicure and pedicure plus with paraffin. My guy friend totally loved it. His nails were buffed to a shine and raved about the service all day. Me and my girl friend found our NEW nail place. We all enjoyed sitting together watching Devil Wears Prada on the flat screen while sipping our tea. I loved the set up. Not cramped but still very cozy. The manicurists paid close attention to my nails and stayed quiet most of the time which I love. We are ALL definitely returning for our next spa day together.

Amazing Service

Well I was doubtful at first just because of the perks that came with the services and for a basic mani/pedi only $40. I read the reviews and had to try. I must admit, the place is decorated really well. Feng shui ... I felt at peace and relaxed. The owners really did a good job with presenting the place. AND the service was above and beyond what I expected. It's a steal for what they are charging. Even if they raise the price, I would definitely return. I loved the feel and most of all my nails looked great ... even after a week which I purposely waited to write this review to see how my nails held up. I've been converted. Sorry to my regular place which is a bit of a drive for me on the other end of SOMA. I really fell for Tiptoes :) And it saves me a 10-15 min drive which I would also have had to fight for parking!

Must See

I had the best pedicure. I'm a chocoholic so I chose the chocolate pedi and it was chocolate heaven. Everything smelled so good ... the lotion and the scrub ... all ... just like chocolate. I was also given some chocolate treats and hot cocoa to drink. Ahh bliss just what i needed from having such a hectic week. Thank you tiptoes.

Best in neighborhood! Had a fantastic experience with my treatments. Deep pore facial was more than i expected and loved the products she used on my face. Had a mani and pedi after and just topped off my day. Will come back. loved it, loved the products, and loved the people.

Good Place

I'm a guy who gets his nails done regularly and I'm not ashamed of it! My girlfriend told me about her new ""find"" so I had to try. Met the owners who gave me 10% off eventhough I had not brought in the discount card. My nails were buffed to a shine and the massage was very good. The ladies who did my feet and hands were nice and totally concentrated on working on me. They DIDN'T talk much which I enjoyed and DIDN'T speak another language, not like the other places i've been to. I always felt like when they did speak their native language to each other, they were talking about you while smiling at you. Suspect! In short, I like the place and will return as long as it doesn't change.

I heart Tiptoes Nail Spa!!

Tiptoes is the best.... so relaxing! This is by far, one of San Francisco's best nail salons. They offer a great selection of nail polish colors, the technicians are very concerned with detail and the setting is incredible. I will definitely go back to TipToes and I intend to bring my friends and my husband! Next time I'm going to try their ""Grape-Crush"" pedicure in which your feet are scrubbed and soaked in red wine. But then again, the chocolate pedicure sounds pretty good too...

Truly Relaxing

A couple of friends recommended this new nail spa. They said it was clean and the mani/pedi's were fantastic. So I decided to try it one day eventhough I'm a regular at another place. Am I glad I did! Tiptoes is much more convenient for me since it's in the neighborhood and I used to go all across town. Price is great and the manicurists were very detailed with their work which is very important to me. I hate it when my cuticles are hardly touched and massage is just a gentle rubbing motion. Thank you to my friends for the great recommendation and I must do the same to others .... totally recommend! This is my new nail place. I will have to try the facials next ...

completely 100% satisfied

I made a trip to tiptoes nail spa. For one, I had to try it just for the name itself ... so cute. And wow ... what a great experience. I had a mani and pedi .. just a basic service but I was treated like royalty. Greeted as I entered, was offered a beverage AND a warm shoulder wrap ... lovely!! Watched a movie on the flat screen. AND can I say, the massage was so wonderful .. I had to purchase more minutes to extend. It wasn't the rub lightly up and down your arm and legs. It was truly a good massage. On top of that, my nails looked fabulous. I will definitely return. Everyone was very accomodating and friendly. Totally recommend.

management and staff not professional

Unfortunately, this salon in a convenient location is not being run professionally. On my recent visit, the only two individuals who could take payments had left the shop for ""5"" minutes which was actually 20 minutes, and six women were waiting at the reception desk to pay or to be seated for a manicure. When the women returnd at 3PM with their lunches in hand they straightened out the mess at the front desk. I was one of the women waiting. I will not return. Too bad the Mission area needs a good salon.

Truly great find

After walking a mile and a half from Civic Center to Potrero (because the stupid 19 bus didn't show), and feeling like I was going melt from head to toe in this crazy heat wave, I decided to spontaneously pamper myself and check out TipToes - which just opened in my neighborhood.

When I walked in, not only was the air-conditioning like manna from heaven, but it smelled wonderful too! The decor is beautiful and serene and the staff at the front desk were very friendly. They had no trouble taking me as a walk-in.

Both the manicure and the pedicure were fantastic! Tran, who did my pedicure, gave me one of the best leg massages I've ever had! And Lee was fun to chat with and did a fantastic job on my nails. Howard, the owner, offered me a wonderful savignon and there I sat for the better part of an hour just enjoying the pampering and chatting with the staff.

I will definitely go back to TipToes and I intend to bring my friends and my husband! Next time I'm going to try their ""Grape-Crush"" pedicure in which your feet are scrubbed and soaked in red wine. But then again, the chocolate pedicure sounds pretty good too...
