Good Value for the Money – I had a basic manicure and pedicure, and I thought it was pretty decent for $35. I was able to get a quick appointment, and as I have learned from having lived all over the world, if you are polite and courteous to those running the business, they are more likely to treat you with respect as well. I would go back there. All in all, a good value.
Not worth it – I just had my first pedicure at Beauty Spa, been wanting to go there for quite some time now. The pedicure was a big disappointment. It lasted 15 minutes and it was $25. They didn't even put lotion on or do any sort of massage to my legs OR feet. The foot scrub with the loofah thing lasted a minute at best. If you want a fast pedicure, only care about getting your nails painted, and you could care less about cost then this is the place is for you. If you want a "spa pedicure" experience, where you relax for 30-45 minutes and feel like your feet are getting pampered. Try ANY OTHER nail place in the Porter Sq/Davis Sq area. In the last 6 years of getting pedicures every 1-5 months, this was the most disappointing experience of them all. I should have just painted my own nails and saved the $29 ($25 plus tip)... Oh well. Never again. I don't remember the name of the place, but I went to a nail salon on Elm Street right in the back of the Porter Square shopping center, and they did an amazing job... But only take cash... Wish I remembered the name to recommend it...
worst bikini wax ever – I went here for a bikini wax and had a horrible experience. I never really liked the manicures or pedicures but they are close to my house and I am a busy working mom so I went here. The pain was even worse than others that I have gotten and the result was just a bumpier, more irritated version of what I started with. Hair was not even removed. It was like paying to be tortured for 10 minutes for no reason. ugh.
Worst Manicure Ever! – I went to get a simple manicure on a Saturday afternoon. The salon was busy and I did not have an appointment. The manager did my nails. I had been there several times before. The time previous to my last visit I got a pedicure and was horrified, but thought I would give it another try because they had been good in the past and maybe the guy who did my toes was new? Well it was even worse this last time. She did not file, she cut me and I was bleeding, and she did not use hand loition. To top it off it lasted one day! Not worth the pain or the money. I have since got another manicure that has lasted a week without a chip (too bad it was in another state!)
