"I called ahead to ask about walk-ins and they suggested I make an appt. When I arrived later, there were several people waiting. I did have to wait about 10 mins" past my appt time but that was still shorter than the 45 mins they were telling other people. However, after the nail tech wrapped my nails in foil to remove my current gel polish, I sat there for over 25 mins until someone came back to me. I had a young man do my manicure, once he got started it took the usual 45 mins. He did a great job, very attentive and focused. No polish smears anywhere and my cuticles looked great...finished off with a paraffin dip, which is a nice treat. I will go back and probably get add a pedicure next time.

"THE best nail salon in KC. No UV, a true artist, 100s of colors, newest technology, and truly the nicest person. We are moving in the next several months and one" of the people I will miss the most is
and her amazing skills.

Nail Salon reviews in Evanston

I am new to the area so in my
Evanston Nail Salons Provider Name Locked
for a new salon I read many reviews of different shops. I had tried 2 different shops at that time and didn't find anyone that I really liked enough to go back. I was super excited when I found
Evanston Nail Salons Provider Name Locked
because they had really positive reviews. I drove 20 minutes to their location and waited for a short time. I showed a photo to the nail tech so she would know exactly what I wanted. When she began to paint the white tip with paint I asked how long that would last and was told 3 weeks. I wasn't thrilled but the reviews were good so I went with it and thought it would last like she said. It lasted for 4 days and it began wearing off. I paid way too much money for that to only last 4 days. I went somewhere else to get them fixed. I wouldn't recommend them and I wouldn't go back either.

I've been going to World Nails for years now and I would never go anywhere else! No matter who takes care of me there I know they'll do a great job. The place is so clean and nice. The staff is friendly and attentive. And the owner is always there making sure everything is taking care of and socializing with the customers. I absolutely love this place and would recommend it to anyone!

I had a pedicure by a young girl who did not understand English at all and who made no attempts at communication by other means. She gave me a very painful foot and leg massage which was the worst i have ever received and I could not communicate with her. The cost was $65.00 (plus tip) and she did not know how to use the products--had to ask others. I don't believe she ever got it right, anyway. The worst part was that she got greasy lotion all over my new (and expensive) pants which I had rolled up to just over my knees. They may be stained permanently. I didn't complain because she could not understand English. This pedicure was not worth $65 (plus tip)! There is a very exclusive spa in Mendham which charges less, is clean, and is a treat to go to--offering coffee, water, snacks, nice ambiance and top-notch pedicures. Unfortunately, I could not get an appointment there. My experience was not relaxing at all. We were lined up like cattle and customers were speaking LOUDLY on their cell phones. A radio was playing too loudly in the background with commercials. Can't they at least just play relaxing music and pay attention to what is on the station? I did not want to hear commercials. This is hardly a "spa" pedicure. I had frequented

years ago, but it has come downhill. There are probably still a couple of good operators, but, unfortunately, the young girl I had was not one. I felt sorry for her well and tipped her decently anyway--despite the cost to my clothing.. She needs training on the entire procedure. I have never had someone so clueless. It is doubtful I will ever return to

Just moved to the area in June 15. My family and I all go in for pedicures and we're looking for a nice nail place with good service and friendly people. We stopped by
Evanston Nail Salons Provider Name Locked
and saw that they just recently opened. We had a wonderful experience, the owner and his family are very nice. They have various levels of manicures and pedicures available. We highly recommend this business because of great prices, very friendly appreciative service, and a clean professional facility.

Be aware that the shop is located on the
Evanston Nail Salons Provider Name Locked
behind the barber shop; it's not directly in line with the other shops. When I first arrived I was given not only a choice of beverages but also a choice of fragrance for the soaking solution. This salon does not use the typical massage chairs used in most salons; instead, clients relax on a long padded bench that lines the wall. When the technician noticed that the large pillow didn't work for me, she immediately brought me a smaller pillow. Bliss! Throughout the process,

gave me her complete attention - so unlike other local salons where the technicians chat with one another while they are giving their clients pedicures. My polish was flawless without a smudge, a

Friendly, very professional staff. Neat and clean environment. Very impressed with sterile-packed tools. One of the best pedicures I've had and the best for the price.

Please don't go here! Had a pedicure
Evanston Nail Salons Provider Name Locked
10th 2015. I have cuts on my feet and could hardly walk yesterday. My feet were dry from swimming that I had done this past week. At one point during the appt, one area started to become cracked, and hurt, so I attempted to tell the person this, she sort of understood. I have never seen a person use the "cheese

" to take off rough skin. It was sensitive at the time but as the evening wore on it was difficult to walk, and more cuts appeared. I phoned them today, no refunds are given and the manager said I could drive there today, I live in
