So much pink! Definitely the girliest place to get a mani in town, but also the best place to relax and get pampered with girlfriends.
Overpriced Poor Pedi – Went there with a group. Nice warm neck pillow. Less than comfortable chair. Water in copper bowl luke warm. Didn't really get rid of the roughness, massage not that long. Because I was with a group they automatically charged 20% gratuity. I got a color and it was $42! My friend got a french tip and it was $48! Another girl got a mani pedi and she spent $75!!! I go to get a pedicure because my nails look better when someone else does them. I could have done a better job in the dark. My entire nail isn't even painted.
Cute things to buy inside, but don't waist your money, you can get everything in there at Charming Charlie for half price.
Will never go again, will let others not to either...
Fantastic Experience – I highly recommend the embellish pedicure - It is fantastic!
I love the atmosphere, you get to unwind from the moment you walk in. Just sit down and enjoy. Have a drink - watch a chick flick, get a heated pillow on your shoulders, and relax.
What's not to love?
waaaay over priced – I went here with a group of co workers for a shower of sort. Just a hand full of girls looking to relax. And relax we didn't. Over paid for a bunch of mediocre service we did! The store is new and located in a convenient central "strip mall." It's clean because there's nothing really in it that's worthwhile. I think the intention was to be "high end" but you can tell by the construction and material selection it's not. The staff is Asian and is pretty much the same as any other typical nail salon I've been to. There's no real massage chairs to enjoy, just a salvage yard pink couch and buckets to stick your feet in. You have to sit at a bar for your manicures, again - not comfortable! The entirety of my services I think they were trying to up sell me to buy all the costume jewelry they had scattered about. The color selection is non-existent, which chipped two days later. I found the experience annoying, uncomfortable and expensive.
Best pedicure in Austin, imo – I really like this place. They take hygiene very seriously, which is a deciding factor for me. They use foot tubs without the whirlpool jets that trap bacteria, and they use new nail files and buffers each time, which they give you to keep when you're done. The foot file surfaces are also disposable. Besides all that, the staff are really friendly and do great pedicures. Julie is my favorite technician there so far; she does a perfect polish job that lasts for over two weeks, no problem. Overall this is a great little local business that I can highly recommend.
Wonderful attention to small details – I had a great manicure and pedicure and so did my daughter (7 years old). Gayle was fantastic with both of us! I really loved how they made us both feel special and pampered. It was a special occasion for us, and the whole staff really came through.
Julie did my manicure, and was very quiet, but has a gentle touch, and great eye for detail.
Gayle did my daughters' nails and put us both at ease right from the start.
Great Place For The Girls! – My boss took our team here after we had finished a large conference as a thank you for our hard work. It was perfect! They were ready for us when we came in, all we had to do was pick out a nail color. They made us feel very relaxed and did a great job on our toes! They knew we had been very busy on our feet for the past couple of months and they made sure to give our feet the TLC they desperately needed. We all left there very happy and two weeks later, I still look like I just had a pedi. Very pleased and can't wait to take my mom and sisters here!
Great environment, poor spa experience – Ok so I've tried to like Embellish, I really have. I used to live around the corner and despite their prices I still didn't mind paying for the convenience/ambiance. But after multiple attempts I have to say their nail technicians are sub-par. They don't do a good job. The worst was the bikini waxing. I went in three times because I kept thinking that the girl was just having a bad day. One time she actually brought the phone into the room because she was "covering the front desk too." A little distracting to say the least. I went back to my favorite cheap asian places on Burnet.
You've Got to Try It – Every time I go to Embellish I have a wonderful time and get a great manicure or pedicure or both as well as a fun shopping experience in the boutique. It is a delightful place to go with a group of friends since they have a very relaxed and pleasant environment and expect I will host many girls' outings to this great place. I also hope to get my husband to go sometime as he really needs a pedicure and I think would enjoy all the pampering! The employees are all very friendly and professional and the owners are super and very accomomdating!
I highly recommend Embellish!
Great Nail Salon – I have only been here twice but both times I loved it. The atmosphere is very relaxing and everyone was real nice. All the ladies who work there seemed very professional and they seem to strive to make sure their clients were comfortable. I think this is a great place to go to if you are looking to being pampered.
good when you get the right person. – I have been at Embellish about five times. My first four times were very good! but........... on my 5th time in for a pedicure I found out my nail girl was not in, and I was put with another girl. I was sure my nail tech was out having her baby. It would of been nice to know that she was not going to be there I was on the books and someone could of called. My pedicure was nice, but........... It would of been nice to know that someone I did not know was going to service me. As I was soaking my feet a few of the girls working were talking about paychecks, not getting breaks, and how unfair the owners are being. Not a good sign.
