I've frequented JV Nails & Tan for about the 4-6 weeks for basic manicure. Had my first pedicure about 3 weeks ago. Normally get the gentleman for my services. Last week received the younger girl (think it is the owner's daughter) for my services and had a horrible experience. She was noticeably not thrilled to be at the shop. I made the mistake of going later in the evening around 6pm. (They closed at 7:30). I'm assuming she was ready to go home. The french pedicure was mediocre at best. My nails weren't filed properly to achieve a uniform shape on all my nails, polish wasn't smooth, AND she cut at least 3 of my cuticles. The gentleman who does nails in the shop is great! He always takes his time and is very friendly. The other older woman (Not the owner's wife) is also pretty good but not as friendly. I made the mistake of smudging a nail on a previous visit and her face clearly showed how annoyed she was. So not as friendly but does a good job.If you try JV Nails, I would not recommend the young girl because she did not take her time or seem to have any interest in doing a good job. Can't remember when my cuticles were cut during a manicure before last week. I realize doing manicures and pedicures all day during the summer may not be the most exciting job. However, if the shop expects customer's to pay for the service, they should make sure to provide quality service minus attitudes and apathy.

I went to Polished for the first time on 11/21/10 and recieved a fill-in. Let me first start off by saying that the salon is different then your regular nail salons hence (Nail Bar). The man who did my fill-in was very nice but his hand technique was horrible. First off I do not like for my acrylic nails to look thick and that's excactly what happen, then he went on to do my nail polish which he put on too thick and looked lumpy and sloopy, when he finished he told me to let my nails air dry. Huh?! What salon does that?!? They have no nail drying stations, so i had to ASK for a fan or something. So after I sat for awhile about 20 min, my nails still werent dry, this girl i was sitting next to offered me her UV nail dryer after she was done. So my opinion about this place is that the people and their hand techniques are very average but they do offer the newest nail products but after I called around to other nail salons I found they offer the same things they have but at a cheaper cost.( Shellac Nails $45 at Polished and $30 at Dilworth Nail Salon) So if you ask me, i think Polished Nail Bar is a very average nail SALON. The people there are nice but not worth the hype nor the drive. Maybe I'll try their other locations in the near future.
I went to Nini on recommendation from two coworkers. I can't say that I've had many excellent experiences at nail salons, but today was different. I am getting married this Saturday, and wanted to plan a special outing for the women in the family before the big day. I was worried because I knew I'd be having women from all over town coming, some needing babysitters, and I just wanted it to be a good time and worth it for everyone involved. I scheduled for a party of 6 at 6 pm (which they still allowed even though they close at 7) I walked in 20 minutes early to start picking out a color. Something so simple became such a complicated decision for me with wedding brain. One of the ladies was so nice to ask me what I was interested in and help me go through the colors one by one, even sampling them on my nails before we got started. We never felt rushed. The "regular" mani pedi service puts others in the area to shame. I am so glad I chose Ninis for such a special event in my life.

With excellent service, friendly staff, and massage chairs which actually massage rather than shake, you can't get a better pedicure in charlotte. 45 minutes of pure bliss in a clean, modern, and pleasant environment. Last week I tried the shellac manicure, rather than my usual buffing. Polish just won't stay on my nails because of the beating they take when I play my cello, but the shellac is staying strong. I'm simply amazed and highly recommend it for those of you who need polish that can't chip. There is no way the techs here would let anyone out of the salon with smudged polish. They seem to obsess over the little details I can't even see. They also keep my brows in great shape, never taking off too much. I tried threading at a mall location once - never again. Polished techs know what they're doing. All in all, I love this place.
