  • Worst place ever. HORRID owners. Jeff manning is dishonest and a scam artist, along with his wife Amy. The school itself is beyond unorganized and financially unstable. I attended the esthetics program at Manning Acadamy. After we realized our instructor was not getting paid on time, or only partial payments and got fired for defending herself and for her husband RESPECTFULLY AND THERE ARE WITNESSES, confronted Jeff as well. We (the students) become concerned about where we stood with our hours and education as well as where our tuition money was going if he couldn't pay his employees, (Come to find out it was multiple employees). At that point he brought in his wife Amy to teach after we had a full day in between with no instructor, we had "study time". She came in and assigned us each a part of the chapter to read and then we would teach the rest of the class. Bogus, and it's only day 1. So we walked out to go talk to Jeff. Again with witnesses (basically the rest of the school left for the day) we calmly and respectfully asked him to explain what was happening and a chance to explain our concerns and why we were upset. Jeff ended up getting heated and walking away saying he couldn't talk with us anymore multiple times. You couldn't even get the owner to sit and be straight with you. I'm paying money and a lot of it I demand answers. He and his wife refuse to speak to any of us as a group and insist on doing it individually. We refused to go in and allow 3 people to continue the way they were treating us with no support not to mention it wasn't fair. After days of drama and this last encounter with the group and Jeff he and his wife decided to end the program. After we asked for a written statement and provided one stating we were hostile and terminated. He agreed to a hand out refunds by December 1st and failed to keep his word. I and numerous other girls have tried to contact him and see him in person and each time he's "at the bank " or no body knows where he is. (Yeah we never knew where the owner/instructor was or when he would show including staff, nice right). At this point eat my money, but I hope that nobody else trusts Jeff Manning.

  • I'm 61 years old and just had my first Mani/Pedi at this salon... and I loved it! Tiera did such a wonderful job and I plan on going back again and again. I was really nervous going into the salon at first, but Tiera was so sweet and treated me like a long, lost friend. She shaped and trimmed my nails, conditioned my cuticles, put on a base coat then applied two coats of polish. Afterwards my hands and feet were massaged like a master and conditioned with the most lovely smelling lotion. I love the polish she used on my hands, it's a gel polish and changes color with the temperature of your hands. When I got home I had to show my husband this amazing polish, so I grabbed a glass of ice water, dipped my nails in half way and gave him a demonstration of the color change. It's been 2 days since and I'm still amazed at how beautiful my hands and feet look.... why did I wait so long! Anyway, my hands and feet have never looked or felt better and I plan on keeping them that way. If you want to be pampered, go to Simple Solitude and you won't be disappointed.

  • It was excellent. I moved so I won't be going back but if I'm in the area, I sure will use them again. I'd absolutely recommend them. That is well worth their time. I thought the price was very affordable.

  • Went there twice in the last 6 months. I went with a friend both times and we each had a good experience. Both times were for pedicures and one manicure. They have OPI polish, a must. Salon appears clean. They used a new emery board, etc. for clients and have the machine that disinfects metal nail equipment. The technicians cleaned the pedicure tubs with disinfects after each client I saw leave and the place was busy both times I went. However, I do not know of they let the disinfectant sit long enough in tubs or if the trap was cleaned properly, it's hard to tell. I will ask what their procedure is at next visit. The bathroom was clean, which is a good overall sign of salon cleanliness. I did not look for Board Certifications or State License, so will look at next visit. I did see on the WA State Licensing website, Dream Nails license is up to date. Staff all seem quite professional and good at what they do. I do wish they spoke better English.

  • I have been going to Aubree for about 9 month. I feel like she does a good job of paying attention to what I'm looking for in a new hairstyle. Aubree has good skills at haircutting and color. It is a very pleasant atmosphere in the salon - not too loud and very clean. Aubree also has a loyalty program - dollars off haircut or color after 5 visits, and incentives for referrals.

  • They were horrible. Unconcerned that the tub was dirty. Against my better judgement I thought after she cleaned and refilled the tub I thought I would stay and then they just kept waiting on other people. If I had been rude I would understand but I wasn't loud or demanding I simply asked them to clean the tub. Worst service ever. I finally got up and left. I say stay away.

  • I have now been going to Simple Solitude for about a year. I always see Tearra, but have come to know several of the other service providers at this charming little salon. The best thing about this group of professionals is their nail art. They are creative and talented, very personable, and definitely customer service oriented. I love Simple Solitude and expect to be going to this salon for my gel manicures and regular pedicures for the foreseeable future.

  • I found Nail Envy to provide, for the money, one of the best Pedicure's I've experienced in the Vancouver area. It's a typical pedicure that lasts a little longer, provides some extras and is done by friendly nail tech's in a prettier than usual, clean and comfortable setting. Let me start by saying I am not a Pedicure snob. If it's going to cost me 50 or 60 bucks to go into a private room to have relaxing music and my own plastic foot tubs---- a "SPA" experience--- I'm not going to pay it. There's a certain appeal to it, and I will at times buy that type of experience through a Groupon special, but have never had such an amazing experience that it prompted me to set another appointment for a regularly priced "spa" pedicure. As long as the place is CLEAN and friendly, the technician can communicate with me, I find the procedure pleasing…Oh, and come out feeling relaxed with pretty, manicure tootsies, I'm happy. That said, I've had plenty of these experiences from the Nail Salons in Walmart. Walmart Salons even provide you with new clean personal bag of pedicure necessities (for a nominal charge) that you can bring back with you for future visits. (Of course, you get to watch all the Walmart chaos which isn't ideal…but is at times amusing) The Good: Nail Envy has a beautiful pedicure area with large comfortable massage chairs and foot tubs. The Pedicure's I've received have cost $25.00. (same as Walmart) For the money, I get the typical whirlpool soak, cuticle trim, nail trim/file/shaping, foot bottoms scrubbed, calves and feet are massaged and nails are polished in the color of my choice. Usually (not always) the technician massages longer than average, adding to the relaxation factor. Every nail tech I've had has been nice. (believe it or not, I haven't felt this everywhere) The extras: A warm shoulder wrap (oddly, I'm offered this most of the time, but not all of the time….maybe an oversight by busy technicians?) Hot wax, stone massage/rub. Most places don't offer these extras for the basic pedicure, so these are nice touches that make you feel as though you are getting a more luxuriously higher priced procedure, for a "Walmart" price. Bonus! The Downsides: The hot wax feels great but more often than not it has caused my polish to chip off in short manner. The polish from my typical Walmart pedicure (that does not offer hot wax) has lasted 2 months or more (sans grow out). I've had polish chips within a week after a pedicure with hot wax at Nail Envy. To their credit, I've gone back in with concerns and have been offered a polish change at no charge. This took care of the issue and the polish adhered properly thereafter. I started rejecting the hot wax just to avoid this issue. One time the owner heard me trying to relate this to the tech and came over to tell me she can make sure the polish adhered and took over the pedicure herself. She took extra care to remove all traces of the wax and used polish remover (I believe) to dry out the nail bed in preparation for the polish. Whatever she did worked. The polish lasted a good long time! During my last pedicure, I decided to forgo the hot wax again since the tech didn't seem to speak much English and I wasn't confident that she would understand the concern. After saying no to the wax the Nail tech asked and then assured me she always made sure that all the wax was removed and loss of polish would not be an issue, so I went ahead with it. It was not a week later and my polish was chipping off again. I had full intentions of going back in and having them re-polished but I could never seem to find the time. Before long too much time had passed and felt uncomfortable asking for a repair weeks later. By 3 weeks, 75% or more of the polish was gone. Several toes (except the big toes) had NOTHING left. I'll have to have another pedicure, or at the very least a polish done long before I should have. The other downside is, and this is a personal pet peeve, is some of the techs speak very little english. If I need to communicate a wish, they at times have had to speak through other techs in the salon. When this happens our conversation ends up being spoken though out the salon. This makes me uncomfortable. I'm also Diabetic. I need the tech's to be aware, and extra careful, I've relayed this before only to have the tech blankly stare back as if they don't understand. I personally want to be able to have a conversation with my technician without all the other customers knowing about it. This is not unusual in the nail business however, and Nail Envy seems to have more techs that speak/understand at least basic English than most salons I've used. I had a favorite there that was very friendly, spoke and understood English very well (it was her primary language) and did a great job so when I had the opportunity I would request her. She no longer works there though. Overall, the pedicures are reasonably priced and offer great value for the money. The setting is as good as or better than most typical nail salons. Even the few times I had a little nail art it's been done very well and the up charge was reasonable. It is my current salon of choice for pedicures and always look forward to my experience there. Just watch out for the hot wax.

  • This salon is dirty and run very sloppily. I will never go there again. When you enter the shop you will see the owner sitting in the front with a toothpick in his mouth and his feet up. After you tell him what you want he will holler in Vietnamese for someone to help you. The man doing me left in the middle of my manicure to eat lunch in the back of the shop. His uncle finished the job for me. This is a very substandard business in my opinion.

  • I called for a price, and was told walk-in was fine. Tina did a beautiful job. was thorough, friendly, and took her time to get it right. I was wearing a hard wrist brace due to a recent surgery, and she was careful to make sure I was okay, even bringing me a pillow to make it easier to hold my arm up for the UV light.
