The last time I wrote it was still cold and I was touting SpaWeek in the middle of February. Well, six months later, it’s August and I’ve decided that I am going to write some short reviews on the three nail places that I go to. Today’s review is the $20 mani/pedi special at the Spring Nail Salon on Fulton Street. I went this past Sunday around 4:00. The place was busy, but they were able to see me right away. I decide to go with my new color of the summer: OPI’s Suzi Skiis in the Pyrenees. Love the name, love the color. It’s a great dark bluish/black color and It’s going to be a good color test for all three of the mani/pedi salons I am going to review.
So, they take me right away, and I am placed in a chair where the back-massager doesn’t work. The chair slightly vibrates, but I really like it when I actually get a massage. Xin, who is doing my mani/pedi is pretty diligent and I had asked her for a 10 minute massage (for $10) and it wasn’t so bad. The ladies are never really “trained” to massage anyone, but the massage does its job, and I do almost fall asleep on the chair. The pedi job is ok. You get what you pay for. The application was a little thick, and some bubbles did form as the polish dried. The manicure was fine. I don’t get any color on my nails so she just cut them, trimmed my cuticles and put some clear polish. All in all, for $31 + tip, you get what you pay for. Check out the pic, you can’t see the bubbles but they are there.
