Welcoming Environment! – From the reception desk to the stylists, everyone there is professional and friendly. You won't find anyone with attitude here, just great, smart people who know what they're doing.
Love my nails! – I really enjoy Aqua and highly recommend them to family and friends. They are very quick and do a wonderful job. I am always impressed by how long my mani and pedi lasts! Most of all I appreciate the cleanliness. I did have a bad experience years ago with a nail fungus from a nail salon that had the massaging chairs but didn't clean the foot bowl properly in between clients. I didn't know at the time how important it was to take the time to clean those basins but I suffered, it took a year to get rid of the fungus. I am never concerned about that happening at Aqua. Than you Aqua!!!!
Best Nail Salon! – I love going to Aqua to have my nails done! I was reading some other NOT SO GREAT REVIEWS and in all honesty I am pretty shocked. The one lady complaining about her party was there when I was getting my nails done,her friend arrived a half an hour late to her appointment and she created a disruptive environment for all of the people who were there for services. At one point the owner did speak with her outside. I thought it was handled well. I could not understand how someone thought that it was a good idea to throw a party during the normal work hours in a nail salon! As far as the review for the massaging chairs. You don't want to go to a salon with those chairs unless you see the entire unit being cleansed and back flushed before you sit down! Fungus can live in the back splash part of the foot jacuzzi waiting for it's next customer. I own a skin care facility and the Board sends out all of the compliance rules for nails to all salons so I know about those massaging chairs. Aqua keep up the excellent work and I ill keep referring all of my wonderful clients to you! Susan
Big service disappointment by the owner. – I love spas and so do my friends so when a friend of mine suggested Aqua Nails as a possible place to book a private mani/pedi for a friend's birthday I though it was a great idea and I booked a mani/pedi for myself and my girlfriend in the "private seating" section three weeks early. At the time my appointment was made I emphasized how important it was that we get the private area because it was a gift for a friend's big birthday. "No problem," I was told. Then one day prior to the service date, an Aqua Nails rep called to confirm. I mentioned that we were looking forward to the private experience to which the rep responded that there were no guarantees to reserve that area. I then phoned the owner, Claudia, who echoed that she "could not guarantee" the private room, but that "95% of the time there is not a problem." I had no time to change the gift or the location so I just hoped for the best. When we arrived for our 2PM appointment, Claudia, who did not greet us in the manner I am accustomed to being greeted at a spa, without as much as an apology, said the room was not ready. At 2:10PM, we were told that there was room for only one of us in that area and that the other could squeeze a chair in . It was ridiculous and cramped. We then decided to just go to the main area so that we could at least sit together at the same time. 20 minutes later, the woman who had been receiving a pedi emerged which means that she must have been seated in our area only 10 minutes before we arrived. When we went to pay, Claudia, the owner, never apologized or even acknowledged our disappointment. The fact that she would seat someone 10 minutes before our appointment when I had mentioned that it was a gift is inexcusable. As a result, my husband and two friends of mine who were previous customers are no more. Why go to Aqua Nails when there are so many service oriented nail bars and spas in town?
cute nail shop – I got my honey a manicure and pedicure here for our anniversary, and she looked fantastic. She had a great experience,and they offered her water and magazines. Overall she was very satified, and so was I. Cute place...........
Cut Color and Extensions very impressed! – Was refererred to Arturos for a hair cut and color by a friend. Walked in felt very comfortable my stylist was Alison she created a whole new look for me with a cut and color. I was so satisfiend with her service that I picked out some hair extensions to have them ordered for my next appointment. I have had them in the past but Alison told me about a new way of wearing them and how easy they are to care for.
On my next appointment Alison put my hair extensions in very quickly, I can hardly feel the band!
I am so pleased with my long thick hair my husband almost fell over. I feel like I am in my 20's again. The best part is the piece I bought can be re attached every few month in less then an hour!
Very happy to have found Arturo's and Alison!
