My right foot is swollen after a pedicure. I have yet to see them clean or sanitize anything, and overheard them telling another girl they don't file after soaks because it could cause an infection. Two pieces put together, IT WILL CAUSE AN INFECTION BECAUSE THEY DON'T SANITIZE ANYTHING!!!!
To celebrate my day of birth I went back to my old stomping grounds to pick up the last of my junk from my old apartment and to get a pedicure at the salon I've always wanted to go to but couldn't afford until I finished my volunteer program.
They have these adorable carafe shaped white paper floorlamps that scream ZEN! and it just looked nice, like the kind of place I should go to be pampered. So I show up a couple minutes before the time the place is supposed to open and I don't see any lights on or anyone moving around so I just hang out for a little while.
I like to be early. It's just a general rule of mine. A few minutes went by and at 10:01 an employee of Ritz shows up with a Starbucks cup in her hand ... with no keys. "Are you waiting?" she asks. "Yes." I respond. So she sighs out loud and goes next door to her friend at the cleaners.
They chat a little while and she comes back out and at about 10:05 another patron shows up. She looks in the window and sighs and assumes a waiting position about 20 feet away from me.
At 10:11 which feels like 10:30 because I hate being late, another employee of Ritz shows up and the employee that was there with me chides her in Spangliese about being late as the gate goes up and I am welcomed inside. (1 star off.)
Are those computers for surfing the internet while you wait? Holy Cannoli! I'm invited to have a seat and they didn't have the color I wanted so I settled for my throwback baby pink.
Massage chairs are awesome and you feel the entire massage if you have an average sized torso. I hate it when massage chairs go too far and it ends up massaging the space that you create between your neck and the chair.
There were all kinds of pedicures to choose from and I just went for the basic. Anything else would have been too much spoiling. I think I was getting the royal treatment or somehing because I looked over at the girl sitting next to me and the lady doing her pedicure didn't seem to be putting in nearly as much effort. My water bubbled. Hers just turned green.
I got a warm towel draped over my legs along with a massage. She got a warm towel rubbed on her legs and then got her legs slapped around a bit. I was really taken care of and gently handled. So when you go here ask for Lee. That girl knows what she is doing.
I'm still not used to New York prices for some services that I once got for less back in Cali but the price was reasonably set at 20 bucks for a pedi. If you want the mani/pedi combo ... just 5 bucks more.
I might even make this a once a month thing. i'm gonna miss Astoria.
This is officially the first nail spot I've tried, I'm a bit picky and to be entirely honest I hate having to find "new" spots.
I set out last night to head to the subway to go to another nail salon that had received fantastic reviews on yelp.
On my stroll I saw Ritz Nails, I did a stutter step, looked left, looked right, paused. To go in or not to go in, that is the question! I did a quick survey of cleanliness, pedicure chairs, and number of patrons inside and took a chance, I was a woman on a mission.
and i love~~~ it ~~~~

The mani/pedis that I get here last a long time (and the salon area is just the cutest), truly lovely, and oh that massage. Just thinking about it now, I resent that I ever wasted my money at those other places. I'll be back for sure.
