Love Nails by David – The BEST nail shop in Modesto...... I love going to this nail shop. Everytime I walk in the door David has something new..... a new spa chairs, customer waiting chairs, new flat screen TV's......whatever. If it's going to make the customer happy, feel more relaxed, comfortable.... then David is going to do it! I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else in Modesto. Thank you David for all the excellent service that you & your staff provide ...... I truly appreciate it like I'm sure all your other clients do!
The Best Nail Salon In Modesto! – I have been going to David to have my nails done for 20 plus years. I would recommend his salon to anyone and the negative comments on here about his salon are total BS. I have been with David when he was at A Plus Nails, then he went to Wild Hair where he partnered because he always wanted his own salon. He always wanted to OWN his own business and his customer's come first, their satisfaction is his main concern and he wants their experience to be a happy one so that everyone that walked through the door would come back. When a person breaks a nail, it's always free to fix...if something isn't right David makes sure his employees fixes it right, the way YOU want it. If you don't speak up he doesn't know your not happy. David is the only one that has done my nails but I've had Lisa do my pedicures she was the bomb but sadly she's gone, but Michael, Cindy, James, are good right now I have Kenny doing it. I've never seen one of David's employee's stop to speak with their client while working on a client in their chair.... he wouldn't put up with that. Not the way he is on them to make sure the person in their chair is happy..... once again BS! I agree with the person that said "you would never make them happy". NailsByDavid is the BOMB! That is why he wins the Reader's Choice Award every year and he couldn't do that if he was providing poor service. Thank you, David!
This place is AWFUL! Go somewhere else! – This place is AWFUL! NEVER go here! They heard people in-and-out like cattle! I asked SPECIFICALLY for Gel nails, NOT ACRYLICS, I told both David, (the owner), and the lady who did my nails (Rose) specifically that I did not want acrylics, and David sat by and watched Rose give me acrylics. She did an awful job on them and one even fell off a week later while I was putting on my shoes!! I went in the day after and complained that she did not give me gels like I asked, told David that I was going out of town, and he said I could come back after and they'd fix it and only charge me the difference. WELL I called him after I got back and he told me it had been THREE weeks, it had been a week and a half and said he could only give me a "$10 discount" and wanted to charge me $40 for a mistake THEY made in the first place! This place SUCKS!
I hvae to say I love Micheal at this salon. He takes his time and does and EXCELLANT job on my Shellac each time I go. Hes personable and great I wouldnt have it any other way! Thanks Micheal for being good at what you do!
NO STERILIZATION NEEDED! – This place has the worst customer service i have ever experienced ! First i was there for 3 hours for a mani and pedi (mani was shellac) while they were working on me they would stop if one of their clients would walk in and chat with them for at least 5 min and then forget where they left on my shellac manicure. this place is a joke during my 3 hour wait i couldnt help but notice client after client for pedicures without disinfecting ughh someone should call CAL OSHA on these people .in addition... there is only one person that knows how to do shellac there and he was very rude. i would rather pay 50 dollars for a manicure than to ever go back to this place ever again.
NAILS BY DAVID ROCKS AND HE IS A GREAT BUSINESS MAN – I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED IN READING NEGATIVE REVIEWS ABOUT NAILS BY DAVID LEE. I MOVED HERE 3 YRS AGO AND WAS LOOKING FOR REFERALS, THIS WAS THE ONLY PLACE NAMED SO I TRIED IT AND IT TOOK A FEW EXPERIENCES TO KNOW THIS WAS THE PLACE I WOULD GO AS LONG AS I LIVED IN THIS AREA.
I MOVED FROM LODI AND KEPT DOCTORS AND HAIRSTYLIST UP THERE I DEBATED DRIVING BACK TO LODI FOR MY NAILS... BUT I LOOOVE GOING TO DAVIDS.
AS I READ ONE REVIEW SHE MENTIONED THERE ARE CULTURAL DIFFERENCES, AND THERE ARE, SO GET OVER IT.... THEY SPEAK GREAT ENGLISH AND ARE VERY AMERICANIZED ...
I THINK THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS COME FROM PEOPLE WHO CAN NEVER EVER BE PLEASED...
I GO THERE BECAUSE THEY DO GREAT WORK AND THEY ARE OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK FROM LIKE 6AM - 8PM OR LONGER, BUT IT IS TRUE THEY HAVE AWESOME PRICES. MY HUSBAND & I WORK F/T SHIFT WORK, I WANT TO SEE MY HUSBAND AND DAUGHTER AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. I SHOW UP AT DAVID'S ANYTIME DURING THE 7 DAYS A WEEK HE IS OPEN AND HE GETS ME IN AND OUT A.S.A.P.
I DID SEE HIS SISTER AND LOVED HOW SHE DID MY NAILS, BUT SHE GOT HER DEGREE AND HAS MOVED ON INTO HER PROFESSION. I HAVE SEEN "HA" "DIANE" "DAVID" "KENNY" AND A FEW OTHERS BUT CURRENTLY I AM A CLIENT OF "MICHAEL". I LOVE THAT WE CAN SIT AND CHAT AND WE KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT EACH OTHER. I HAVE ENDED UP IN MANY OF NICE CONVERSATIONS WITH CUSTOMERS I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW.
I ALWAYS RUN INTO FRIENDS OR CO-WORKERS THERE. I AM TELLING YOU THE REVIEWS THAT COMPLAIN ARE THE TYPE OF PEOPLE THAT COULD NEVER EVER BE HAPPY NO MATTER WHERE THEY WENT...
I HOPE THOSE PEOPLE DON'T GO BACK TO DAVID'S BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT TO SIT BY THEM WHILE THEY COMPLAIN AND I AM TRYING TO GET MY NAILS AND TOES DONE.
DAVID RUNS A GREAT BUSINESS, AT A LOW COST TO THE CLIENT. HE IS A GREAT MULTI-TASKER, THAT IS WHY HE HAS THE HEADSETS AND MONITORS.
ALSO FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DIDN'T KNOW IT, HE HAS A MINIMUM SET TIME SO NO ONE GETS A 45 MIN PEDICURE AND SOMEONE ELSE GETS A 15 MINUTE PEDICURE. (SO THOSE REVIEWS ARE B.S.) IF YOU TOOK A MINUTE TO SPEAK TO DAVID OR THE NAIL TECH YOU WOULD KNOW SOME OF THIS.
WHEN I HAVE HAD A BROKEN NAIL, OF MY OWN DOING, IT WAS FIXED FOR FREE ASAP. IF MY TOE POLISH CHIPS, (BECAUSE I WEAR BOOTS AT WORK) IT IS FIXED ASAP FOR FREE.
IF I DIDN'T LIKE SOMETHING I TELL THEM & IT IS TAKEN CARE OF ASAP, HE WANTS HIS CUSTOMERS HAPPY, HE WANTS THEM TO BE COMFORTABLE AND TO RETURN BECAUSE THEY ENJOYED THE EXPERIENCE.
HE KNOWS HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE BY NAME. DOES IT REALLY, REALLY, REALLY MATTER IF HE DOESN'T LOOK AT YOU TO ASK WHAT SERVICE YOU WOULD LIKE OR WHEN HE TELLS YOU WHAT CHAIR TO GO TO??? IF THAT REALLY, REALLY, REALLY BOTHERS YOU... PLEASE DON'T COME TO THE SALON BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT TO SIT NEXT TO YOU AS YOU CONTINUE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT EVERYTHING.
HE IS A GREAT BUSINESS MAN, NICE GUY AND KNOWS HOW TO RUN HIS BUSINESS, OBVIOUSLY LOOK AT THE SUCCESS IT HAS HAD ! ! !
NOT ONLY DOES HE KNOW HOW TO PLEASE HIS CLIENTS BUT HE KNOWS HOW TO MAKE A PROFIT, JUST LOOK AROUND HE HAS MADE A LOT OF PROFIT. PEOPLE ONLY MAKE PROFIT WHEN THEY ARE DAMN GOOD AT WHAT THEY DO AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO KISS ANYONE'S BUTT WHEN YOU'RE DAMN GOOD, YOU JUST DO WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT AND IT WORKS ! ! ! HIS PRODUCTS ARE GREAT AND IT IS EXTREMELY CLEAN AND HE HAS MALE CLIENTS TOO.
I LOVE MY NAILS AND PEDICURES DONE AT NAILS BY DAVID LEE. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK DAVID, XOXO CHELLE
Good Job! – Many years ago I went to David's before the salon was this big. Seeing it grow is impressive. The lady who did my nails was friendly and fast. She did exactly what I asked her to do. Also she checked to make sure the nails on each hand matched in length. (It's amazing how many don't!!!)
Have a degree in Business Admin (with marketing as part of that education) I would recommend STICKING to appointment times to make a customer feel more valuable. Plus being over packed is not a relaxing environment.
The wait was not bad considering how busy it was. My nails turned out great. I did not have to sit there two hours as the employee was experienced.
I will definitely go back again - next time I will make time for a pedicure!
EXCELLENT QUALITY WORK – DAVID IS AWESOME. I HAVE BEEN GOING HERE FOR YEARS. I EVEN USED TO DRIVE FROM THE BAY AREA BACK TO MODESTO TO GET MY NAILS DONE. HIS WHOLE CREW IS QUICK AND EFFICENT AND UNLIKE OTHER PLACES HIS WORK IS GUARANTEED. FOR THOSE OF YOU ARE COMPLAINIG ABOUT HOW QUICK HE IS MABYE YOU SHOULD STICK TO THE PLACES THAT CHARGE $5O FOR A SET OF NAILS AND TAKE TWO HOURS TO DO IT. FOR THOSE OF US WHO LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD, HE IS QUICK , EFFICIENT AND HIS PRICES AND QUALITY CANT BE BEAT.
OK Service – Nails by David Lee is granted cheaper than the rest of the nail shops around in Modesto but their service is definitely below standard. David's employee worked on my nails and got me out of there in about 45 minutes. However after two days, my nails looked like it as if needed refills already. I agree with some of the other ladies who gave this nail shop a low review. For quality service, I would rather pay a bit more.
Quanity vs Quality – Of course anybody that has been going to Nails by David for at least 6 months or more will have something positive to say. At that point your considered a long time customer. Who can pay with checks and debit cards even. What about NEW customers?? My experience with Nails by David was a waste of time. This guy thinks he's in Beverly Hills or something with his cordless headset on and monitors to keep track of his crew and customers. The worst part, was that my manicure only last 1 day and then started to chip. Seriously it was like my 10 year old niece did my manicure. My friend had a pedicure and hers started chipping after 2 days. She was disappointed that the pedicure litterlly lasted like 15 minutes. For the reason that he had customers left and right coming and going. He talks to people like we're there taking up his time and that he's the only place in this whole city that does nails. He talks to his crew and totally bosses them around like if he'll take their tips if they don't get the customer done and out in 15 minutes or less. Needless to say, Nails by David is TRULLY based on QUANITY not QUALITY, therefore has a reputaion of really bad customer service. The only good thing about Nails by David, is that his prices are low. So you pretty much get what you paid for. Bad customer service at a great price. Who wouldn't want that, right?? Well not me and everyone else I have shared my experince with. However everyone is entitled to their own opinion. If your all about good customer service and getting a good manicure or pedicure, then Nails by David ISN"T for you. If you don't care about these things, then go for it. I personaly would rather pay a little more for QUALITY service.
