The best hot stone pedicure just $20. – The Best Nails Salon in Town.
The service was above and beyond excellent when I went in for a manicure at this wonderful little spa on NW 23rd. From start to finish, my manicurist went out of her way to make sure that I was relaxed and happy. It's the little details that stick out in my mind that made the experience great, from being offered tea right when I arrived, to the patience of my manicurist when I took a bit longer choosing a color from their impressive OPI and Chanel polish collection. The hand massage was great, and my nails and cuticles looked fantastic by the end of my appointment. I only lasted five days before I found another excuse to go in for some more pampering! I would definitely recommend it here for any newcomer looking to treat herself.
I went to Midas to have my pedi/gel done for my b-day party.This shop is super clean,staff are so nice they made you feel welcome. They take time for my pedi and my nails look so pretty when it done.I absolutely will come back this place.
Best Pedicure in Town. Manicures and pedicures are amazing. Staff takes their time with a VERY relaxing experience. My manicures last longer, too.
Very Friend and Professional. – May daughters and I made our first trip to Midas. We got very good service. We recommend this place. It is small but well organized.
Don't waste your money, even with a coupon, not worth it! – I originally went here with a Living Social coupon. I cannot say enough negative things. The place firstly was dirty, I mean filthy. I also felt like the staff were rude and were gossiping about me. They did not offer me a gel manicure, which is what I had come in for; that was the coupon offer. I assumed they were doing that, and not knowing much about the difference, it was not until after that I realized they had not given me the gel polish. They were unwiling to redo my nails, and tried to sell me a "gift certificate" at the discounted rate to come back. I said no thanks.

False Advertisement! – The reviews with those that purchased the Living Social Coupon are TRUE!!! The staff are very rude to those with the coupon. They tried talking me out of getting the GEL nails also because it would take longer than a regular manicure. They gossiped the whole time to eachother in Vietnamese and made me feel very uncomfortable. My pedicure turned out great but the nail polish they used was so low quailty,the nail polish started to chip in about a week ( pedicures i get at other salons last about a month) I will never go back to this nail salon again.
We're making commitment to treat every client equally and respect. And we're continue to that commitment. We're having no control over of people giving us negative feedback. We're offer gel-nail and pedicure for Living Social coupon, and it's clients' choice to making decision if they want regular manicure or gel-nail. Our jobs are to explain the pros and cons between regular manicure and gel-nails because gel-nails is very new to most of the clients. We have zero tolerate gossiping policy in our salon. I'm so sorry that you had a negative experience, and I would appreciate if you would email me at wendy@midasnailspa and giving me chance to fix your pedicure.
Not worth the coupon – I had the Living Social Coupon also. While I don't mean to complain about something that I had a coupon for, I do think that I should have received what was advertised.
The salon was small and kind of dirty. The website made it look new and fabulous. This was not the case. I was disappointed the moment I walked in. There was nowhere to set my purse, so I had to leave my designer bag on on the floor, with all of the dirty nail shavings down there.
While my manicurist was friendly, the pedicure was not relaxing at all. She dug down into my toe with the file, and didn't even realize it until it started bleeding. It hurt so bad! She only used the pumice stone on the arch of my foot. I do not know anyone who gets callouses on the arch of their feet. It was by far the shortest pedi I've ever received. Thank god, or she may have cut more of my toes with the file. Not to mention the awful paint job I got. I could have painted them better myself.
I wasn't even offered the geli-manicure that was advertised. There was another lady in there with the LS coupon also who was being talked out of the gel polish as well. The manicure did not consist of "manicuring" my cuticles or nails. She just basically slathered some lotion on my hands and gave me a bad paint job. Again, I could have done it better myself.
Overall, this was by far one of the worst salon experiences I have ever had. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Save your money and spend it somewhere else. Or just do your nails yourself. They will look better than they will if you go to Midas.
This nail tech is no longer with us. Please give us a second chance to give you a better pedicure and manicure. I'm working on to find a space for handbags.
Incredibly Unprofessional – I also purchased the Living Social pedicure / manicure deal. Had an identical experience to the reviewer before me.
We made a reservation & waited 20 minutes. It was the shortest pedicure that I have ever received; she painted my nails (poorly) & trimmed my cuticles. No massage, no mask, no hot towel. She had someone sitting next to her & they held a conversation the entire time. It was obvious that they were annoyed & put out by us using our LS voucher; they were not the slightest bit friendly.
The manicure was much the same & they did nothing but try to talk me out of the gel manicure, which was advertised as part of the LivingSocial deal. I did Not end up getting the Gel Manicure.
"Spa" pedicure & manicure: exclude the 20 minutes of waiting, services + drying time were 38 minutes. Had I spent the normal price of $52 for these services, I would have demanded half of my money back. Age Old Adage: You get what you pay for.
Truly wish that they would have provided what they advertised, if so, they would have had a customer for life.
I will never revisit Midas, there are far too many other great nail places in Portland that I will gladly pay $50 to.
There is no way that no one could finish a pedicure, manicure and drying time in 18 minutes. We have a very large % of returning clients using our Living Social coupon, and we're so regret that we couldn't get a potential client like you.
Very Unprofessional – I bought a deal of livingsocial for a half price service of pedicure and geli-mani. I paid $26 for the half price of $52 midas pedi and geli-mani. If you go to midasnailspa website the midal pedi includes the mask and hot towel wraps, which we did not get. I only got the salt scrub, not even moisturizer. We were only given a spa pedicure, so obviously we did not get what we paid for, even if it was half price. We recieved a $40 service instead of a $52 service.
I understand we got a good deal to begin with, but the idea of businesses doing these deals is to get repeat customers off of them to help their client list. I will not be a repeat customer.
We were scheduled at 11pm for our pedi's and mani's and they had another group of three scheduled at 12pm. If you go to a quality nail spa they certainly will spend more time than that on the services listed. Also they were short staffed that day so we had to wait 15 minutes when we arrived. My mother's technician was a fill in I believe because she did not know how to operate the equipment and she did not do a very good job with the polish.
The part of the service that irritated me the most was that the package we purchased included the geli-mani. A much more expensive OPI Axxium soak off Gel. The technicians did every bit of persuading she could do to get us to not do the geli-mani and do a regular mani instead. I assume because it is faster for them to do, cheaper, and easier. I was so disgusted with these tactics. And to top it off while I was picking out my color she kept trying to get me to choose a CND Shellac UV Color Coat (which is not a gel) instead of the OPI Axxium!
If you want to be treated like you are at a used car lot then I definitely reccommend you go here. Maybe they treat their full paying customers better. But if that is the kind of service they provide for their half price deals then they should not do them. Because of that I will not be going back to the Midas Nail Spa.
OPI Axxium soak off gel was the first to come out for gel nails revolution. Shellac follows the OPI Axxium and it has more advantage and better benefits to clients because OPI Axxium soak off gel takes longer to soak off in special OPI solution; while Shellac gel nails, it's only take couple minutes for the gel to come off soaking in regular acetone. Our jobs are to educate the pros and cons between OPI axxium soak off gel, Shellac, and regular manicure. And it's always up to client's decision to make a choice.
