UPDATE:It's been 3 weeks and my gel pedicure is still intact. Though I wasn't too pleased with my mani, my pedicure remains "on point"!Thanks Golden Nails  :-* xx

Gave this place a try with my sisters and mom. Arrived ~10am on a Friday morning and they were able to accommodate us within 10 minutes without an appointment which is great for a nail shop. Gel Mani/Pedi:I got a gel mani/regular pedi for $40 which is a great price in comparison to other places in the city. Both my gel mani and pedi are still intact and it's now Monday, which is great. However, my mom's pedi peeled Friday night because she rubbed it against her heels (hours much later after she got them done) My sisters pedi also got ruined because her toe accidentally got stepped on, again, hours later. Which makes me wonder if I got lucky cause my mani/pedi is still intact. Not sure if it had to do with the different ladies doing our nails or if it's the products they use.Service:The ladies here are really sweet (for the most part) I accidentally ruined my toe nail when I was in the drying area. So I told the lady to fix it and she groaned, then started speaking in Vietnamese to her coworkers. I felt really bad but it was her job to fix it, I wish she had been nicer about the situation. The lady who did my nails took her time, same with Van (the owner), but my mom complained about being rushed by the girl who did hers. I think this place is just okay, I really wanted to like it. But I'm still in search of my perfect nail shop in the city. Read more 6/9/2016

They're so nice and accommodating. You can walk in near the closing and they will still help you in whatever you need. I always get out of work at 6 and its worth the wait because they're usually busy at this time but they will assist you anyway even if it means staying an hour past when they were supposed to close. Friendly staff and prices are fair compared to other salons in the area that charge 60 and up for a gel mani/ pedi combo. But they charge 55 and honor the $5 off which comes out to $50. You can't beat that!

TLDR;Don't come here, the other Yelp reviews were right. They're extremely rude that the cheap price isn't even worth it. My nails weren't even that great.So I came in and I asked about their Yelp promo to understand it better since it was very unclear to me what $5 for shellac gel mani and pedi package was. Then one extremely rude lady who was working on another customer already starts yelling at me with her eyebrows high arched up telling me how much things would cost. Like obviously I've never been here and she didn't even understand my question. So I went back to the front to just read the prices off the poster and I ask another lady my questions (she worked on my toes, and was really nice and actually smiles. She was pretty cool. The only bad part was that I got a cut on my foot?!?! Like another Yelp reviewer said happened to them but I also don't know how I got it. Weird.) The rude one then walks away from the customer she's working on once again and decides to yell at me.. again!!!??! Like what?! She basically kept talking about shellac gel nails because that's what I asked in the beginning with the Yelp promo, but I didn't want it anymore, just asked about it. So I told her nevermind and I just want French mani/pedi WITHOUT gel and I'd pay whatever the price is. We finally come to an understanding, my goodness. Then she walks away, gives me the dirtiest look ever (probably cause I went from $55 to $31) and starts talking to her coworkers in viet and I know she's talking some major smack. I really didn't appreciate the dirty looks she was giving me. When it was time to do my manicure, the rude lady is the one doing it for me!!!! Surprisingly her mood changed and she was pretty okay. She asked me to pay before we started tho... I last minute changed my mind to do all white nails  instead of French for my hands. I thought she'd give me attitude again cause I changed my mind earlier, but she wasn't as upset as earlier. so that changed the price from $31 to $28, and she just quickly muttered something to her coworkers again but it wasn't as rude as earlier. Overall my nails were okaaaaay. Okay as in I wasn't excited about my nails nor am I completely dissatisfied. Just the service was upsetting.

Update: I've already had THREE of my nails start to lift. 48 hours later, this is officially the worst shellac I've ever received and will be going in for a refund tomorrow.

Half of the shellac is coming off already :( taking them off tonight. Half of the shellac is coming off already :( taking them off tonight.

I came in 2+ hours before closing and there was only one other customer there. An extra 5 minutes would've resulted in a far better finish (and prevented her from having to completely redo one of the nails). The edges are already flaking off 6 hours later... this shellac MIGHT last me a week. Also, why pull at skin that isn't dead?? The red spots at the top right of each finger weren't hangnails or even beginning to dry out :( I might give them another try, just because everyone was so sweet and the prices are reasonable. But I hope they'll take more pride in their work... Read more An extra 5 minutes would've resulted in a far better finish. The edges are already flaking off 6 hours later...

Used to come here a while ago, now I remember why I stopped -__- My usual nail shops were too packed and I was in need of a fill so I just took another chance... 1.) The lady wasn't shaping my nails the way I wanted, I kept telling her what to fix and it only got worse, another lady tried to come fix them and I ended up using their filer to do it MYSELF. 2.) I had a couple colors picked out, had her try the first one and when I didn't like it and asked for it to be taken off she was huffing and puffing about it. Thank goodness I didn't get gel like I usually do cause I will be changing my nails soon. Never coming back

Ever since i became a nurse i havent been getting my nails done much..but for occasions i always come here and they dont disappoint, it remains my favorite place for great prices and bcuz Tony is the man when it comes to acrylics. it doesnt look so fake and thick, he takes the time to file and listen to what you want! His wife is great too with nails, waxes and nail designs, theyre such a nice couple! I got gel acrylics for $35 and a pedi for $15, regular polish nails are much cheaper. Its a cozy place and they have massage chairs for pedis. They are also able to work on your nails n toes at the same time if you make an appt.

Make sure to ask for Tony or Van when it comes to acrylics,I like how it never looks too thick and fake. GREAT PRICES TOO!

Really bad service, rushed my whole mani and pedi. I had to keep telling the person stop rushing and keep telling then to fix my nails. I don't know this place is even here wen it looks like the people here doesn't know how to do a simple Mani and pedi, when I could've done this at homey self. Oh n thing they keep talking shit in vietnamese wen I can understand what they saying. All I have to say is that THIS PLACE IS NOT WORTH IT. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL AND VERY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE.!!!! NOT WORTH PAYING FOR.

I am in love wit this place. I came here after work at 6:30 for a mani & pedi (30 mins before closing time. I feel like an ass but in my defense, I called in and the lady said to come in)They didn't rush at all. Took their time and did everything they were supposed to do still. We finished at 8 (an hr after closing)I felt so bad that I left the store to wait for the polish to dry in my car and even though the lady insisted and told me no worries and to just stay and chill until it dries. I rushed back to my car and of course the dumbass me rubbed 2 of my nail polish off as soon as I got in my car. After debating on what to do, I decided to be a huge ass and ran back to the place. They were already leaving. I told her what happened and apologized. She reassured me that it was not a big deal at all and fixed my boo boo in like 5 sec  oh and my nails look amazing!!!!

The ladies were sweet and took us even when they closed in an hour. Me and my BF went for super deluxe pedicures.$30 ea was the cost and it is supposed to consist of:Super Deluxe Manicure/Pedicure - This special treatment helps to soften the skin and eliminates dryness. Our Super Deluxe Manicure/Pedicure includes:nails care,exfoliation with handfoot scruband a warm lotion massagefollowed by a Paraffin Wax.Your hands and feet will feel totally refreshed and and renewed. Approx. 50 minutes.I got the description of their super deluxe mani pedi from their website on Yelp. Basically, We both got everything done very quickly we were left In our chairs in the beginning for about 15 mins to just soak which was what ok since they had a few other clients and only 3 manicurists. My BF got a manicurist first then mine came about 10 mins after.. Yet, Somehow my pedicure caught up to my BF's and we were getting the foot scrub at the same time I kind of felt like I was skimped on the exfoliation .. I just ignored it maybe they were in a rush since they closed in 30 mins.. Still I was somewhat annoyed by it since I was paying $30 for a pedicure a SUPER DELUXE SPA PEDICURE and I always tip, but the lady kept smiling at me so I felt too bad to tell her I felt skimped, my fault there. ALSO WE BOTH GOT NO WARM LOTION MASSAGE OR ANY WARM LOTION OR ROOMTEMP LOTION AT ALL??? Why? Maybe I should Have asked or made them do it but I feel like they should know how to do a super deluxe pedicure. I feel like when someone gets the most expensive pedicure they shouldn't have to remind them what to do, and that you should make sure you make it exactly the way it is in the description. Another thing I was turned off by is how much they focus on your calves when exfoliating and doing the "foot scrub" they barely focus on your:heelsyour solesyour archesor any of the other parts on your feet they you really need exfoliation on or a good old "foot scrub" hence the name "foot scrub"why on earth would I goto get a pedicure and want my calves exfoliated?! It's about the feet! And it can't be that they're weirded or grossed out by it because they wear gloves for Christ sakes. Anyway maybe I'm being negative Nancy but I feel like if I'm paying $30 plus cash tip I want my feel to feel like I'm paying for that. But that was my experience here. Will I come back ? Maybe, it's close to my house.

I got a gel manicure here. They did a really poor job of pushing back and cleaning up my cuticles. I think one of the things that makes a manicure look really nice is the there is no polish on the cuticles. I left here with my cuticles covered in polish and after half a week, it looks as though it's been 2 weeks.

5/11/2016

The manipedi was okay; the service was alright as well. I was just curious to why we got our legs massaged with cuticle oil instead of lotion. Also during the pedi - I managed to get a cut on my toe - as to how I got it: I am not to sure. I really wanted this place to be my go-to place: but after my first experience today, I'm not too sure.

Sucks that I have to write this review in a bad light since the salon is 5 mins from my house and I was really excited to try something out so close to me. I got white tips done here for $23 and they didn't last more than a week and a half. The girl finished my nails in 25 minutes but my usual nail lady takes up to an hour. As soon as she put the top coat of nail polish she said "you can go". I told her no I'm not leaving until my nails dry because they'll get ruined. She sat me down for 15 minutes and then touched my nails and said you can go. I've never felt so uncomfortable and rushed. I gave this place 2 stars instead of 1 because the prices are cheaper compared to some salons. But I would rather pay $10 more for better quality and a more relaxing/ welcoming experience.

Showed up with no appointment on a Wednesday at around 5pm and was helped right away. I got a pedicure and gel manicure. I commend the nail technician doing my toes cause those suckers haven't been taken care of in a while! Hahah. Prices were good but I wasn't very fond of their selection of polishes. Gel manicure was $25 and pedicure was $15. Wish they had a deal for getting both.

I really don't know what happened to this place. I use to come here all the time because they offer great prices and they used to do a good job plus they email me coupons. Last time I came in I had my eye brows done and it was so rushed and she didn't even ask me if I liked it she just did it quickly then said OK your done. When I looked in the mirror it wasn't even clean and she's the main lady that does them.The lady that did my pedicure she was nice and did a good job that's why I give 1star The husky lady that did my shellac nails did a horrible job.  I don't think she knows how to do nails she should stick to pedicures.Even though its cheap I will not be coming back which sucks because I really liked them when they first opened but they've gone down hill since then

Always come here to get my eyebrows done. They can get pretty busy though. Never really call in for an appointment because they always take walk-ins, but sometimes when I sit there, I notice they make their appointments wait because they take so many walk-ins and not enough staff to help out. Still, have great experiences here either getting my eyebrows done or nails. Doesn't disappoint.

Nice ladies! Ok looking place, I forgot to bring sandals so had to walk across the unclean carpet to the drying station, wish they offered those cheap sandals --Bring sandals!

I'm not a fan of this place at all. My cousin comes to this nail salon all the time but I honestly think it's just a hype or cuz the price is cheap. You get what you pay for. The gel polish does not last at all, the nails that they apply on you, she glued it to my skin so imagine when I broke a nail, my whole nail and skin came off. Very painful.When you're choosing the gel polishes you choose from a section nailed into the wall but the colors are so faded and dusty that honestly you don't even know what the real color is anymore. They barely put on a good coat of polish, they give you two thin coats. I'm just not coming back here. Im going to stick to my original nail salon which is Westlake Nail Spa. 5 more dollars than this place but the quality lasts for a long time plus they have tons of cute colors to choose from.

I've been here a couple times. But today's experience was not acceptable she left my nails so uneven and long. Thankfully I have nail equiptment to fix these bad boys myself. But I really doubt I'll be coming back.

Had an amazing first experience at Golden nails! A former coworker suggested this salon when I asked for a recommendation.They were extremely accommodating. My friend and I were late for our appointment but they still took care of us in a timely manner.I was very observant of all workers and they were all wonderful. One of them even offered their customer a phone charger after over hearing her say her phone was dying.Van was AMAZING. She did an excellent job at giving me ideas and incorporating everything I wanted in my design as well as my friends design. Most definitely sending more friends here.

Another job well done Another job well done Van's Disney design Van's Disney design 8/17/2016

I went for the first time today and I am so happy with my gel manicure and regular pedicure. They were fast and did a great job and made sure I was comfortable. I will definitely be going back again!
