I'm a regular. – They do a much better manicure/pedicure that some of the other places in the neighborhood I have tried. They r priced a little higher but their pedicures are worth it. They also have the really good back massaging chairs which is a big plus.
Terrible place – Spaology is the most terrible place i've ever been. People who work there are completely unprofessional and have no experience. i went there for manicure and pedicure and they did such a bad job. they don't even know how to polish and clean the nails. doing her job so badly, the girl who did manicure injured my nail and i've got an infection afterward. Also, they do for you some kind of massage and without notifying you charge you for it. In other words, do things you didn't ask for and you end up paying for something you didn't ask for because it is waste of time to argue with unprofessional manager who shouts at you.
If you care about your nails DO NOT EVER GO THERE!!!
DO NOT GO THERE – I went there last week for pedi and manicure. They did terrible job...one of my nail was bleeding, the nail polish was too thick so it didn't dry out at all...there are more things i could describe. People who work there no nothing about good pedicure/manicure. On top of the injury with my finger, they charged me for an extra without telling me that it's not included in the package i bought. After arguing with the manager, I got yelled and was told that I must pay no matter what. I couldn't believe I had to pay for my nail which was bleeding and feet massage I wasn't even told about. They really try to screw you there... obnoxious manager, unprofessional staff and terrible service don't worth money they charge.
Mixed Feelings! – Despite reading mixed reviews i decided to try the place out as it's local to where i've recently moved. I had a manicure, a 1-hour massage and my half legs waxed.
The manicure- it was pretty basic, it didn't include much of a hand massage and the nails could have been painted with more care.
The massage- i have mixed feelings about this- the masseuse was a man- who was friendly and professional and massaged very well- in the end i felt very relaxed and my back, and shoulders felt much less tense... The only problem was that at times i felt uncomfortable because he was massaging too close to parts of my body i wanted him to stay well away from- such as breasts and thighs. Maybe for some it might be ok- if it were a female i would have been ok but if you're a modest female who generally prefers a female masseuse then i would stay clear of this place!
I think i would go again if i really needed a good massage- But i would wear shorts and perhaps a strapless bra- and i would be more vocal about what i am and am not comfortable with.
Waxing- it was good. No problems really
Impeccably Clean, Friendly, Relaxing, Long Lasting! – Spo Ology has the most friendly staff! They give great pedicures, using fresh lemon slices and sugar scrub! The basic pedicure also includes an extensive amount of massage time! I also recently had my nails silk wrapped, they did them just how I wanted them! Short, narrow and very natural looking. They are all super sweet and accommodating, it is truly a pleasure to go there! I also recommend a 10 minute chair massage! The guy who gives them is incredible! All services are moderately priced, but not overly expensive. They charge a bit more then your typical $6 manicure place but the atmosphere, cleanliness and service is well worth the few extra $. I've tried so many salons since moving to NYC a few years ago and once I found Spa Ology I would never go anywhere else! I highly recommend!
Cleanest nail salon in the East Village – I was born and raised in the East Village and nail salons have come and gone, but Spaology is here to stay. Their impeccable service, clean utensils, efficient and effective, massaging pedicure seats, free massages while you wait for your nails to dry, in-house massage therapist, this place has everything and best of all the prices are reasonable. $10.50 for the best manicure of my life? Totally worth it.
Great, especially for us working mom's. – I loved it. I got a gift certificate which was for the Ultimate Stones package which included a Hot stone pedicure (GREAT!) a manicure (Also GREAT!), Hot Stone body massage (The Best!) and a deep cleansing facial. It was a great relaxing experience. I would recommend it to anyone. I must admitt it was kind of pricey but its definitly worth it especially for us working mom's.
Best place for mani/pedi in East Village! – I love this place! I have tried several different nail salons in the East Village and this by far is the best. It doesn't matter which technician you get -they all do a gret job. The staff is super friendly and its a great break to go in their every week after work. I feel completely relaxed when I leave. Definately 5 stars from me and I'm a regular!
It's a favorite... – This place is the best! I go here once a week (at least) to get a mani / pedi. It is clean (number one priority) and the women / men who wait on you are friendly, professional and efficient. I always have the greatest massage, my nails look fabulous and they color selection is full. The only problem I have run into was the wait--which can be much more than just "5 minutes"....
Great Mani/Pedi and massage!! – I went in to get a basic Mani with a girlfriend. When I was there I decided to get a massage. It was the best one I found in a long time. I now go back all the time for a mani/pedi and massage every chance that I get. Also my manicure lasted about 2 weeks! very impressed by this place. They are also extremely clean. I recommend this place to everyone :)
