My wife goes in here almost every other week. She loves this place. If you ask me there prices are a little high but if it keeps my wife happy thats most important
Prior to living in downtown, we lived in Sherman Oaks where there are hundreds of salons in close distance. We now live in downtown, we see lots of salons as well in all major streets. We have had our mani-pedi done at all these places. Nail Service stood out as the most quality salon we have been to. We are their focus every single time. They consistently perform fantastic job on every thing from cuticle, massaging and polishing. They do not gossip while working. Very respectful and professional salon !!! They recently have a new parking garage at the Weller Court, which is better than the previous one. We get our service time validated entirely. FYI, we do small grocery at the Japanese market, purchase a magazine or just get some lunch at the Weller Court and we do get validation as the same value as Nail Service does.
Look No Further! Everything You Could Possibly Want is Here – TO All PROFESSIONALS I have been getting my nails done for 20 years. I used to run all over town to find good service for nails, eyes, wax. I don't have time to run all over LA with 2 babies and a demanding career. I wanted to find true professionals who take pride in their work and I found it. I get everything done at Nail Service. DO NOT got to nearby nail shops thinking they can do as good of a job. This place is one in a million. The owner takes the time to research her products and make sure they are healthy and safe for clients. They do it all and do it right. They are perfectionists and have competitive prices. They do a better job than my old Beverly Hills Nail Salon. You will be surprised. There is a power team for gel mani pedi but I refuse to tell you their names because I don't want to compete for appointments with them. First class service. Superior products. Cutting edge designs. I went in their shop looking like a tomboy and left reality show ready...lashes...wax...gel... the works. All in one place! Fast. Competent. Professional. Reasonable. What more can you ask? My nails are healthy and strong for the first time ever. They really care.
PS - Receptionist and Manager are HOT!
Our girls come here regularly for our nail sets. The nail guys, Kent and Jimmy, are excellent , super careful and amazingly precise. We have tried all kinds of new sets since we found this place, about 2 years now. My favorite is the pink and white set. My other friend likes the glitter-powder set. And other girls just have regular sets with designs on top. They are excellent nail setters, on top, they have very good materials. Our nails stay transparent, shiny and chip-free for up to 3 weeks. While having our nails touched up, we usually have our pedicures done also. Our favorite pedicurists are Lana, Diane, Amy and the new girl Sydney. Lana and Diane usually talk more than the other two.
There are lots of parking places around, just make sure to look at the signs if it's ok to park from 4pm to 6pm. We never use their validated lot. We always use the Japanese Village lot on Central and 1st, so we can get our favorite Italian ice-cream inside the village whenever we come for the nail works.
I discovered this place when I desperately needed help with my eyebrows and considering they are across from my work, I tried them out and they do the best eyebrow job in the area. The owner is precise and can fix any other esthetician's mistakes. Although she's fairly fast with the waxing, plucking and trimming, my eyebrows always look great!! And the price is reasonable.
Pros: nicely shaped eyebrows
during my vacation to l.a, i was extremely satisfied with the services and work done at nail services. It was a coincedence because I was living in one of the hotel around there and was recommended by several people to go there and get my nails done. The price was very reasonable and the person who did my nail, name Kent, he was amazing. I got a set of white and pink done, i was never satisfied like this. He was very patient, and did an extremely good job. Hopefully if i was ever to have a trip back to l.a, i would love to visit this place again!! So guys,,, ask for Kent to get the best look and services!! :)
Whenever i received my hard-earned paycheck. Nail Service is on the top of my to-do-list. I have been coming here for the past 4 years. First, i came here for the simple manicure just to test out the salon. I was not completely happy but the people were nice and the environment was so cute that i gave it another try. The second time i had a french manicure with John and i was really happy. He was a perfectionist. Unfortunately, John got married and moved to another state. But then, there were many other girls that i did not try yet. So for the third time, i came back for both manicure and pedicure and was with my boyfriend. We had a long distance relationship and i wanted a place that could provide a sure nice service to treat him. We had Amy, Lynn, Lana and Jimmy. They gave us such good service that we have been regulars ever since. The salon has new services and many new different kind of polishes every month or so. I have tried all of them. The new gel manicure thing has got me hooked for almost a year. The color lasts on my nails for three weeks or more. I enjoyed the compliments for having nice nails all the time. Any way, i love this place. I could say more if i am not so tired of tying. So come and try for yourself. Oh, not yet, the gel thing, they have all the brand names. I like the Harmony, only $30 and lasts the same or even longer than the opi gel on me. Opi gel manicure is $35. The other more advance, organic gel is $45. But i am happy with the $30 one. The only problem is that i ran out of the Harmony colors. I wish Harmony has more colors. I made my nails more excited by having designs on top of the gel colors. Jennie worked the designs. She was such a cute, small girl and could do a very nice job. She worked on my eyebrows too. I like them.
I have never been to any places where they can do such good nail arts. There's a nail technician there name Amy, she's amazing at her job. I love her 3d nail arts design. I can never get anything better anywhere else. Im always happy as i walk out, she have always been amazing.
Great Service – Outstanding service! best hair Stylist in town. Super clean and friendly!
i love my manicure and more .......... – They are located within the yummy block of Japanese restaurants. I live about 10 miles away. I come here for Shabu Shabu, Tod, Hama Sushi and Nail Service.
1. High quality nail polishes, OPI, Essie, Orly.
2. High quality gel polishes: Calgel, IBD, OPI and Gellish. my gel manicure lasts 3 weeks and more. I tried them all, Harmony, OPI, IBD and Calgel gels. My favorite one is calgel. This one brand has more colors to choose from and more options on glitter and extensions.
3. SUPER CLEAN!!!! i appreciate this fact the most. I completely trust them to handle my hands and feet for cuticle care and beyond.
4. Nice people. They put my precious LV handbag :) up high or inside a basket, never on floor.
5. GREAT MANICURISTS. i had good results with Jimmy, John, Amy, Kelly, Ashley, and Jessica. There are a few other manicurists but i have not had the service with them yet.
6. GOOD PRICES. I pay $30 for manipedi, great value. Occasionally, I spend $35 for my gel manicure which lasts over 3 weeks.
7. Waxing is always good here as well. I always have Emily so i can't speak for others.
And lastly, parking is free with validations at the Weller Court underground parking.
