l.a. vie l'orange offers all nail spa services above and beyond that of your average shop. la vie l'orange is concerned about the overall health and appearance of there customers nails, in addition to the satisfaction of there customers. Most customers become instant friends with the manicurist For once I was not worried that the manicurist are talking about the customers in another language!! Here mr and my sister felt at home. The pedicures are to die for and lots colors are ready for any occasion - another benefit of there friendship. So make your appointment now - this is not the average walk-in shop - expect them to be on time and ready for you when you arrive!
Beautiful and cozy, and everyone is super friendly, great prices – I've lived in LA for about 10 years now, and have moved from spa to spa...until last year. I decided to look up who did the one of the LA Lakers Cheerleaders' nails, and found Pilar at l.a. vie l'orange She is wonderful and very sweet. The spa is so beautiful and cozy, and everyone is super friendly. They're always smiling and happy to offer water or anything you might need. I highly recommend checking out the website, they have great pictures! The thechs has done wonders with my nails . I'm extrememly picky about color, and have always left the place happy. Thank you l.a. vie
What a MAJOR Rippoff Check the prices - You can buy a new clothes cheaper! – I only went here because I was given a gift certificate for 250.00 by a celebrity client. I thought that I could get my nails done for a while but when I saw the prices - I just about sh*t myself! Are you kidding me? Forty bucks for a plain old pedicure? $80.00 for a manicure & pedicure? What a joke - I'm going to try to sell my certificate! I'll stick to my regular place who charges 18.00 for BOTH! It will be a cold day in July before I set foot in the hoydy toydy dump again!
l.a. vie l'orange hits the mani-pedi mark – Recently a few friends and I from the media industry met after work for a mani-pedi and reflexolgy at l.a. vie l'orange, and I must say it is the consummate place for after work relaxation. Lucky Magazine sent us an email, of the best places to go in LA, so we tried it out. Unlike the noise and odor filled places you usually find, this place has a very "Zen Like" atmosphere, and an welcoming environment. They have plenty of chairs to seat you while you are waiting, no harsh chemicals or smells in the air, (unlike other regular corner nail shops that want you in and out in 20min) so you can linger before or after your treatment. They are very attentive, and serve fresh cookies, water, tea, hibiscus tea and lemonade. The techs are very friendly, and know when to speak to you, and when to let you just chillout and enjoy. Over all this place get my seal of approval , so thanks Lucky Magazine, Oprah and the rest for sharing your quaint little space with us..
Can you say CHOP SHOP? – Wow...So I see I'm not alone in this! All I can say is DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY!!!! I used to come here all the time and have seen this place slowly decline. I was in for a service yesterday and this once beautiful, tranquil establishment has basically become an overpriced CHOP SHOP. These technicians belong at Happy Nails. First off the foot files are USED, no more champagne or wine for us people paying for pricey services (they have some lame excuse blaming it on the city) and the "MANAGER" (or whoever the guy is at the front desk), fights with his employees in front of us patrons. (I witnessed him first hand - Very unproffesional in my opinion) What has become of this place???!!!! And the specials! Out of curiosity I checked out their website when I got home and can you scream DESPERATE loud enough?! I will not be going back and I WILL be telling all my girlfriends. What a shame.
Don't Even bother it's not what they say! – I must of caught them on a bad day! My service was terrible.
All the nail technicians are foreign and can barley speak english now. It is run down. I attribute that to the new owner / management. The products used in services seem to be diluted and although neat it was not clean. They don't even bother to dry the tools after they come from the autoclave used to sanitize. They bag them up wet and keep going. I watched the ladies put them in the bags and it was a far cry from sanitary. The owner hovers around and attempts to be sociable with the customers. His breath nearly knocked me off my feet, he is not professional and asks intrusive questions. I miss the old management. It seems to be a flea market, there is a chick selling fake "one of a kind" jewelery that can be found downtown LA. What happened to quality?
l.a. vie l'orange New Gel Manicure System Rocks!!!!! – I had been wearing acrylics for 3 years, and then switched to the traditional Gels (that still used acrylic powder), and still was not happy because of what my nails looked like after they were removed, thin and used. Then one day I went into l.a. vie l'orange and they told me about the gels they use called "Bio-Gel". This gel is bio-friendly to your nails, has no smell, it is fast, simple, and comes in over 400 colors, and actually helped my nails GROW... I am now a loyal Bio-Gel customer, and get them done every 2-3 weeks. They last, don't chip, are flexible, and are very very natural looking. When I get them re-done, the tech did not have to grind my nail down at all, they just soaked them off with polish remover. This is the solution for us women who want our manicures to last loner, and look as good as the day we got it.
High Quality Service-Not Expensive – The best place in LA and it wont break your bank account!
They have awesome specials on their website all the time! They use clean tools all the time and are the best!
that is my new favorite place! they dont rush and they have a REAL spa ambiance.
My SATURDAY was the BEST! – My first time was 2 weeks ago on a SATURDAY and it was amazing!!! It was so warm and friendly! The front desk was so inviting! While I was getting my service it was real quite and calm the kitchen staff would bring me over freshly baked cookies and yummy coffee!! i cant wait to go back but my polish has lasted soooo long I need to wait! lol If you all need something to do on the weekend this is the place to go! You dont feel rushed at all I couldve of stayed all day!
SLOW! Unorganized! So unprofessional & Catty! – I went to this place 2 weeks ago. And I cannot believe the service I got. They were so slow and unorganized. Plus the management was rude! My tecnician was actually talking about another salon it town. I came to get my pedi and all I hear about is their competitor. Last time I'm going here..
