The pedicure and scrub was good, but the polish design was the worst I've ever had. I have done better in my living room.
I went in without an appointment for a pedicure today and was was told about a 10 minute wait. It ended up being about 20-30 minutes but as a walking that is ok. The tech, a lady named "T" was very nice. She was soft spoken so hard to hearead though. I went in with an in grown toenail and took her time and used extra care on cutting my nails and making sure there were no left over pieces of nail left in the nail bed. The only complaint is had was as I was waiting there was a guy who works there sitting in one of the pedicure chairs napping. I understand that not every tech does every service and I also understand that they deserve a break time but that seemed very unprofessional to me when you have customers waiting. Overall, it was a good experience and I will go back.
This is my favorite place for a pedi. My friends from work and I go regularly. I love the complimentary glass of wine or soft drink, the atmosphere, and the prices are the same I've paid anywhere where else. I don't understand the bad reviews others have given. I've never waited more than five minutes, they've always been very nice, and I've never has a single problem with my paint chipping or smudging.
I have a lot of negative points about this place! My nails looked so-so and they rushed through the whole process of the pedicure and full-set. Part of my nails started chip after just a few days! The people give you this snob look at you, not friendly at all. The guys there give me an uncomfortable feeling. I will not be coming back to that place again!
The best nail place in Shawnee!
Wow - I don't know why I didn't go with all these bad reviews but I tried them anyway. The reviews were spot on. This place sucks. Within a week my nails were lifting. I went because I saw a lady who had hers done there and they looked really nice. So when I went to the lady that did hers, I told her that I wanted mine the same color, etc. as that person. Well, let me tell you, looked nothing like hers. Plus, doing such bad work, they charge and arm and a leg. Sure the place looks nice but that's about it. While I was there, someone else came in to get her nails redone because they were lifting too. I WILL NOT GO BACK!!
I'd like to note that this happened in Shawnee, OK. I cannot speak for all lifestyle day spas.Their acrylic nails turned my fingers yellow before I even made it home. I've had my nails done many times at many places and this has never happened to me. I went back to get them fixed and it happened again before I got to my house 10 min away. So they offered me a new free set because they did not want to refund me $46! So for my free set (and my 2nd time trying to get them fixed), I asked for simple french tips, thinking that surely nobody could mess that up. But they did, 2/3 of my nails are white now. I thought french tips were supposed to be "tips", not painting the majority of my nails white, leaving a sliver of pink by my cuticles. I was polite and always tipped my nail tech (all 3 of them even the free ones) so why am I getting this treatment? I have posted pictures of my awful nails on their Facebook page. Feel free to take a look if they haven't taken them down yet.
Finally I have some time to write a review. I liked going to this nail salon in the mall since it's so convenient when I'm shopping there. But I do have one thing I wasn't happy was after 1 week of getting a full set of fake nails, almost half of the nails fell off! After thinking about it, I recall one of the guys who did my nails and it seemed like it was so fast. Which at first I thought cool fast and done, but now I think he did a poor job at it since the nails fell off. I believe his name was Pete something? I couldn't really understand his English. I went back there again to get my nails re-done and they were much better this time around because I chose another person to do my nails. This place is not bad, just make sure you chose the right person to do your nails.
I went to this nail salon in the mall next to Ross and it seems like a very nice place and they are in the process of renovating by observation of the new and additional spa chairs. That's the positive side of my experience. The negative was having a tall skinny guy do my nails, he seemed to rush through the whole process of giving me the manicure and polish like he had to be somewhere quick, but later while my nails were drying under the special light I noticed that he was trying to claim the next customer. For doing it so fast, my nails only looked so-so and not have the wow factor. I was disappointed in his work. I plan on giving this place a try again but I will definitely pick another person to do my nails instead of that tall skinny guy. I may try a girl next time since I feel like the other girls working there take the time to make the nails look right. Girls seem to have a better understanding of how nails should look like. I'm sorry but guys who do nails are not as delicate and careful. He disappointed me and that's why I would rather choose a girl from now on when I go to any nail salon.
The salon is gorgeous. However, that is the only good thing I can say about the salon. I remember coming in, and it was packed. Thinking, wow this must be a great place that why there are so many people were waiting. Then it was my turn, the older lady was very nice. Her English was perfect, but my set of pink and white were not. I have never thought that my nail can look this horrible. I didn't know how to tell her that she did a horrible job, she was so sweet and nice. Before leaving the salon, I decided to ask for her name. If I every come decide back to this nail salon, I will request that anyone else beside this lady do my nails. I do not want to post her name since it's a private matter. However, if anyone decides to try this salon out. Please avoid the petite skinny lady sitting in the middle that speaks fluent English.
