I have a friend that went to this place just yesterday. They rushed through the shellac process and the polish kept splitting. My friend continued to say something to the technician, but the tech kept indicating another coat of polish would work. Well, it didn't. The nail polish looked horrible - as if a child did it with their feet. At that point my friend told the tech to remove the polish and was left with bare nails with remnants of polish on the nails AND on her fingers.
When it was time to pay they STILL wanted to charge for a manicure!! My friend was going to pay them for a polish removal but the owner insisted on charging her for a manicure and threatened to call the police if my friend didn't pay. My friend, not being the type to cause trouble, paid for the manicure and left the establishment.
I would NOT recommend this horrible, inferior, ridiculous place to anyone -- even an enemy! Terrible service, terrible customer service, terrible attitude.
Maybe they need to change the name of the shop to the THREE TERRIBLES.
I'm 9 months pregnant and went here for a spa pedicure, mostly just for the leg and foot massage. The pedicurist refused to massage me at all because I am pregnant saying it could cause me to go into labor. While I understand her concern, I told her I was full term and it would be okay and you have to push exact pressure points on the ankles anyways, yet she still refused. This is my third child and I have had many pedicures while pregnant and always been massaged with no problems (which I told her). Still she would not do it. And to top it off, I was charged full price and the pedicure itself was mediocre. So I would most definitely not be going back again.
Love Portlands Hottest Nails – I have been a customer of Portland's Hottest Nails for more then two years now. They always greet you as soon as you walk in the door. I always specifically have my mani/pedi's waxing, and my newest addition "eye lashes" done by DeAnne. She is very warm and welcoming and easy to talk too. Every time I go, I look forward to seeing her. I wouldn't trust any other salon with those services that they provide.
Thank you Portland's Hottest Nails
Portland's Hottest Nails -- that says it all! – I've been a customer for over three years and could not be happier with the service. If I suddenly decide it's a good day for a mani/pedi, I can usually get an appointment the same day (I prefer the same technician). Walk-ins are no problem. The staff is genuinely friendly. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Great place to chill and pamper yourself.
I LOVE this place! (after over 15 years...) – I have been frequenting Portland's Hottest Nails for more than 15 years... I had been to other nail techs & shops previous to that, but once in this door, never considered going anywhere else. I send all my friends here. The skill level is very high, and my nails always last for weeks. Previously they would lift or break or grow out with noticeable bumps at the grow-out line... since coming here, my nails are sophisticated looking, the grow-out is amazingly smooth, and any of the very few times I've needed a repair, I am served swiftly and efficiently with a smile. I can go 3 or 4 weeks between fills if I need to... (though I would not recommend it for optimal beauty : ) I LOVE the whole bunch!!! They have a standard, and they keep it high.
Good service; fair pricing – I've been going to Portland's Hottest Nails for over a year. My husband has been, too, several times. Although I generally make my appointments with Deanne (who's fabulous!) we've always been treated fairly and with friendly service from all the staff. When I've asked questions about a process or a price, I've been answered directly. I'm wondering if DancingButterfly has this salon confused with another. Or if DancingButterfly is just confused -- as I've never heard of any acrylic or solar nails lasting six months -- one's own nails would have grown out entirely by then.
I do agree with DancingButterly on this issue: be informed -- good advice in general. And I would add, don't be afraid to ask questions.
THE TRUTH – referring to dancingbutterfly:
i personally suppose you dont know much about the business. there is a different between regular acrylics and solar nails, but obviously you dont have an idea of its significance. yes solar nails has a process dealing with powdered and yet also does acrylics. they both require powder. so where ever you are going that tells you acrylics dont need powder is wrong. in my opinion, the process of getting complete with a set depends on the nail tech themselves. i have tried many different nail techs, and their speed varies. and no artificial nails of any kind that will last six months. even a kid will know that theory. portland's hottest nails dont cheat anyone, they charge by what they can offer and give out the best experience a client asks for. maybe you're just confused about what you wanted and make a wrong judgment. they tell the truth and advice in which a professional nail tech would do in order to satisfy the client's needs.
and for whom is supporting portlands hottest nails, that is very appreciative.
BAD Nail Salon – I used to go to this place for solar nails. I didn't know any better. Came to find out that they were not really giving me a solar nail, although they were charging me for it which is very expensive. They were just giving me just a regular acrylics, and telling me it was solar nails. Cheaters, in my opinion. I've been going to this new salon, who actually showed me what a solar nail is. Solar nail takes along process, there's powder involved, there's scraping, drilling and buffing involved. My solar nail now usually lasts me six months. At Portland Hottest, my nail only lasted two or three weeks.
Be very informed before going there, because they won't tell you the truth.
BEST MANICURES AND PEDICURES IN PORTLAND!!! – After trying many other salons in the Portland area, a friend recommended Portland's Hottest Nails. I have been a customer for over ten years and have recommended them to everyone that has admired my solar nails. Deanne is the best and always remembers exactly how I like my nails done. She finally talked me into getting a pedicure after years of doing my own and now I'm hooked. I love the pampering and the heated chairs with massage are amazing! I know you will be as happy as I am with your nails!!!
PHN's pedicures allow me to show my feet in public! – Portland Hottest Nails Rocks. I have been a rather faithful customer since 2001. I have always been treated with the utmost respect and kindness. In return, I get nails that are perfect! The polish lasts for forever on my toes! I wear sandals constantly during the spring/summer/fall, and am very hard on my feet. Sure every once in a while you have to wait, ten minutes tops. Keep in mind if they are late getting to you that maybe the appointment before you was late, or the customer had more requests than they stated. No sense getting upset about it, after all you are getting some of the best pampering available.
The nail techs are on commission, if you want a more experienced tech, then schedule an appointment. I have yet to have a bad pedicure or manicure for that matter, no matter who has done my nails. If the new staff is inexperienced, how are they going to get experience if they don't have a chance? And if there was ever a time where something wasn't perfect, or if I smudge my polish, I just let them know -- no harm no foul. I have sat in the chairs long after my polish was dry, but I am also understand if there is a line of folks waiting for their nails to be done.
All I know is that I feel good when I am getting my pedi/mani and I leave there with a smile on my face. Its an affordable way to feel good about yourself, and have a good time with the stafff.
