AQ is the best nail spa in the area! I used to go to Nail Garden because I can walk there from my house, but after bad service, after bad service, i started sampling different spas in the area. For a while I was even driving 45 minutes to my old college town to get a good mani/pedi. But then I swtiched to AQ and loved it! At Nail Garden, I was always rushed out of the door, but at AQ it is a full experience. I get a great polish job on my toes and fingers, but more than that i get a great manicure and pedicure. For me it is all about the quality of the actualy procedure, not just about the polish, i can do that myself at home! AQ always fits me in and even if it is busy, I get great service and a good job. They really take their time, pay attention to detail and always massage a little longer than most places. They also do very good waxing too! It is a little pricier than your normal strip mall nail salon, but overall it is worth it. The atmosphere is very serene and the prfessionals working there are always helpful. There is also never any pressure to get things done that you don't want. AQ nail spa is like a real spa expereince, without the price tag. Getting your nails done is an induldgence, why not get a good experience while pampering yourself?
