Great, personal nail care service! – I have been going to Michele for about a year and absolutely love the way she does my nails! Michele has a very cozy salon and while it is located downtown, I still make the drive b/c she does such a great job each and every time. Michele is very accommodating to her clients and flexible on schedule - I can't say enough good things - you'll love the service and quality you'll get with Michele at Bloomingnails!
WAY better than acrylic! – I did the whole acrylic thing and almost ruined my nails. Plus, now that I look back on it they look really fake. The gel nails that Michele offers are a far superior product. They feel and look very natural, don't peel or chip, and are somewhat flexible so you don't break nails as often if ever. There are a variety of colors and styles to choose from and the prices are comparable to acrylic nails. How often you go is going to depend on how fast your nails grow. I'd usually go 1-2 times per month. Michele is really great about scheduling and responds quickly to emailing which is good for a working gal like myself. If you are sick of acrylics, definitely give the gel nails and Michele a try!
Beautiful nails and relaxing atmosphere, all-around wonderful experience!! – I went in wanting some pampering and I got it! Michelle is wonderful, very warm and inviiting. I have been looking for not just a 'good' place to get my mani/pedi's--but a 'great' place and I believe I have found it! Both my hands and my feet are soft, glowing and polished--and its four days later! I know there are a lot of little nail 'joints' up at the strip malls around town, and I am sure they are okay and cheaper. But I am a big believer in getting what you paid for, and I believe that Michelle gave me my monies worth! Plus, I am newer to Austin and she gave me an AWESOME reccommendation for a facial and some great places to eat and check out here in town! Loved it!
the ONLY place be pampered! – I was referred to Michele by a friend, who has been seeing her for years. She told me that I would love the vibe of Michele's cozy space. Michele was ridiculously understanding of my unpredictable schedule, and accomodated my need for mani/pedi rescue in a jif! Her space is just my ideal... intimate, cozy, professional, friendly. I felt like I was spending the afternoon with a good friend, sipping hot tea (she made mine PERFECTLY), and it was our first meeting! She told me she was having a swing installed on her salon's patio the next day, and how do I wish I could be there all day with her. My tired hands have never looked or felt so good, and my feet? My feet no longer look anything like Fred Flintstone's. Michele is so professional, so real, so intelligent and informed. I only recommend her to my clients, and I can't imagine ever having to go anywhere else. In the few months that I have lived in Austin, I have had some difficulty finding the perfect place to have my natural nails & toes pampered and respected. Bloomingnails is the ideal nail studio, and Michele is the ideal guide on your personal escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The location is hidden, but her directions are exact and simple, and I feel like I have been enlightened to a secret, exclusive retreat, right downtown! Sitting right in the crux of the busy city, Michele puts you at ease at Bloomingnails, and you are instantly at home on the porch with one of your very best friends. I will be seeing Michele regularly (and often!). Bloomingnails holds true to the true essence of spa and beauty services: curteous, professional, intimate, and friendly. You don't have to worry about being rushed out so that the next "customer" can come in. No worries that your nail tech is too busy chatting with her friend or on her cell phone to pay attention to you. No worries about how clean the pedicure bath is. Thank you Michele for bringing the beauty back to the nail care industry!
Great product with beautiful results! – I have been going to Michele for about three months now, and I have to say, my nails have never looked better or been healthier. The gel that she uses (Bio Sculpture Gel) is amazing! It's flexible, so even when I catch my nails on something, they don't break off, and it has a firm grip on the nail bed, so they don't lift and fall off! It comes in over 100 colors, so you can get the right look for you and not have to worry about polish chipping. It cures almost instantly so you don't have to worry about marking up your nails after you leave from your appointment. I cannot say enough good things about it! You can look up their website to read more about the products by googling "Bio Sculpture Gel". I researched Austin and the surrounding areas for manicurists using gel products (because they are so much better for your nails than acrylic) and Michele has the best prices around. Her boutique is comfortable and inviting, and Michele is very experienced and knowledgeable about nail care. She is very good at what she does, and is very efficient. Try her out, you won't regret it!!
Editorial Review – Professional nail care, manicures, pedicures, milk and honey manicures, gel nail enhancements, Arbonne skin care and cosmetics products.
Punctual and professional service – I stay too busy to think about setting aside time for a manicure. Lunch hours are full of errands and let's not talk about after work....Time is money and Michele provides value in both respects. She was prompt and affordable. She provided great service within the time scheduled without rushing or cutting corners. I plan on affording myself the luxury of regular visits to Michele. I can count on punctuality and professionalism. She even offers appointmens prior to work - - one less place to "have to be" after work. Thank you, Michele.
Goodbye Acrylic, Hello Gel! – I had been getting acrylic nails for over 6 months now and decided to try out the gel nails. I love how thin and natural looking they are. Plus, they are soooo much better for my nails than what I had been doing before. Michele is great and tells you exactley what she is doing and how to care for your nails (so they last longer). She is very friendly and easy to talk to. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a great manicure and/or pedicure in Austin!
Great friendly customer service – Michelle does a great job with nails, is a great conversationalist, and is always open to comments from customers. She is a people person and is also very professional. You'll like the cool vibe, the location, and the attention to detail.
Try it out!
Best Nails! – I have been trying for 4 years to find someone good with gel nails and I am so happy to have found Michelle! She is great!
