Fantastic! 8/8/2008

I happened upon this place and I am so glad that I found it! I splurged for the Spa Package #2 and it was worth every penny. The atmosphere was relaxing, the technicians were excellent, and the overall experience was heavenly! I highly recommend this place if you're looking for an amazing spa experience in the Valley. Pros: Amazing service, expert staff Cons: Nothing! more

Great Customer Svc 3/13/2008

I am picky and have tried numerous nail salons for my acrylics and pedicures. If you like pedicures where they take their time instead of of rushing you in and out when you are getting treatments, this is the place to go. T gives the best pedicures. She takes her time and puts her all into each pedicure she gives. I am never disappointed! I have been very disappointed in the past. I tend to take my nails off if I am not happy with it and waste my money. I haven't found 1 person that I really like in regards to my acrylics there but everyone I've tried is excellent. My fills last the full 2 weeks. I am also very big on customer svc and AQ Nail salon is great! Very friendly, courteous, and they remember your name. Cindy is the best! more

Beautiful Nails in a Tropical Paradise! 11/4/2007

I was really impressed with this nail place. It is my favorite in the valley! It feels like you are walking into a tropical paridise! It is very clean inside and they use good quality products. Just ask for the quick-dry spray or oil and you are ready to go a few minutes after they have finished up the painting. The massage chairs are by far the best, if you like the kind with the rollers -- as I do. One thing that really drew me to this place is the relaxing atmosphere; it is usually quiet with relaxing music in the background, which makes for a professional and relaxing experience. Pros: Atmosphere, massage chairs with rollers, clean, good quality products used, good skilled technicians. Cons: A little more expensive but worth it! more

Worst service!!! 9/24/2007

So i walk in and ask about the prices or to see a brochure. The girl at the front desk was so rude!!! I felt as though she was forcing me into getting the most expensive combo when i only wanted something simple. I guess she thought i was cheap so she made me wait for my service for about 15 minutes. Then she said stuff in vietnamese and just left me standing not knowing which chair to go to. I got my services done and was out of there in about 15 minutes... same time i waited !!!! I don't know how long pedicues and manicures take but i know its not suppose to be 15 minutes. I had to return to another nail salon closer to my house called Nail a day later so they could fix the mess i had all over my nails I suggest no one to go here. Ive been to alot of places and I could say this one ranked last on my list.\r \r Pros: Worst service, rude Cons: n/a more

what a horrible place 9/14/2007

after reading other review, i decided to try this place out. i will not spent alot of time desribing the worst experiene i had at a nail salon. But here is a quik summary, first they were late on my appointment, when i got to my chair, it was dirty. there was pieces of nails all over the place. the manicurist seemed like she was in a rush. Even after all that, the polish was not applied evenlly of my nails. anyways i will not be back here again. more

Great Pedicure 7/25/2007

While in Las Vegas last month, I treated myself to a $75 spa pedicure at one of the top hotel spas. It was my first pedicure ever. After a little research on the web, I decided to try AQ. What a surprise! For a third of the cost, I got a far better pedicure and spa treatment. The nail technician was far more meticulous and experienced at AQ. I will certainly be back! Pros: No sales pressure, parking, no wait more

I have tried it all! 6/27/2007

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? more

Best Nails in LA! 5/17/2007

I love this nail salon, and i have been to a few to say the least! The manager is so sweet and accomodating. This is my regular spot. One night I was stuck at work late and showed up right before closing. They stayed open late for me and give me the regular five start treatment. All the women who work there are so nice and I have never recieve less than VIP treatment. The nail salon is so clean and cute. I get the usual pedicure and manicure with parifin and scrub. Pros: Thumbs up. Easy parking (Free), Never more than a two minute wait. clean! Cons: None yet more

The Reviews Say it All 5/15/2007

I went to AQ nail spa on sat for the first time, let me tell you it was the best experience I have ever had at nail spa. It was so nice and relaxing, the workers where wonderful, I had no sales pressure which was the best part, it was nice and quite were I was able to enjoy nice relaxing service. I am always skeptical to try new places, but wow the reviews do say it all it was perfect. I am very picky on where i go, and this place just left me speechless. Thank you I will be back for sure. Pros: You feel like your in desert Island, spa chairs Cons: UMMMMMMM can't think of anything more

Very relaxed, clean and comfortable setting. 5/11/2007

I worked on a temporary assignment in Glendale, CA for the past year and a half. I lived in the Burbank area and I had been looking for a spa to go to in the area. I spotted and stopped in AQ Spa one day to have a pedicure. I was promptly and graciously waited on. I like the idea that they accepted walk ins and I never had to wait. It was so much nicer than the place I had gone previously. It was never too crowded and the staff was very pleasant. I was always able to relax and have good conversation. After leaving the Burbank area and moving to Pasedena, I still preferred to go to AQ instead of spa's in Pasedena. The ladies do a wonderful job. I especially enjoyed conversation with Cindy, the receptionist. She was always very friendly and professional. \r JoAnn\r Solon, OH more

elegant and warm nails spa 5/7/2007

I have lived in many different cities and I have never come across such an elegant and warm atmosphere like here in Studio city. The price is very reasonable considering the quality of work and ambiance you receive. Everyone of the girls are always warm and welcoming and I now feel like they are like family whenever I go. Sometimes I just go in for a color change just because of how nice everyone is. It is always consistent in the workmanship. If you have certain ideas you want for your nails they are always open to any suggestions so to make you happy,unlike other nail salons. This is a first class place with first class service. I highly recommend this salon over any. Cindy the owner is always hands on to make sure everyone is pleased and comfortable.\r They are wonderfull!!!!!!!! I give 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!\r Pros: Clean, classy friendly great skill with nails and massages Cons: There arent any more

AQ Nail Spa - the Area's Best 4/23/2007

What a tranquil place AQ is! The staff is friendly, efficient, and not pushy! It is clean and tidy with a tropical atmosphere. Most notable features: every customer gets the star treatment and private areas for waxing have a very relaxing decor. I left there feeling totally pampered. I've been to a few salons in the area when I traveled here previously. The other salons functioned like an assembly line, and AQ was a welcome change. Loved the chair massage during my pedicure. AQ is the best for personalized, spa services such as waxing, manicures, facials, etc., at a reasonable price. Lots of great boutiques and other shopping are also nearby. This is the place to indulge your body with many spa services! The ambiance is marvelous. Looking forward to my next business trip in the area. Pros: Fabulous & reasonable service, parking available, and easy to find location Cons: Hope they will expand to full service spa more

Definitely an Island Oasis! 4/22/2007

Their motto is really true! You can definitely feel as though you've stepped away from the hectic city life and entered an oasis of calm where you are serviced quickly and professionally.\r The decor - bamboos and palm trees against a background of sand and earth tones with the sounds of soft music - you are transposed even before your treatment begins.....\r The manicures and pedicures are done gently and efficiently with attention by excellent manicurists.\r The rooms designated for waxing and massages are clean and private, and any one of their facialists do an outstanding job. \r I've tried nearly everything they have to offer and have been so pleased with it all! more

Best French manicure, hands down. 4/17/2007

I'm very picky about my nails, and I've been to several nail salons in the Studio City area over the years. I tried a local salon and was very disappointed, so when I passed AQ, I decided to give it a try - and I'm so glad I did. Tiffany did a French manicure for me, and my natural nails looked prettier than they ever had before. The staff were all extremely friendly, and the salon itself was very tranquil, professional looking and had a calming atmosphere. Plus, I had my eyebrows shaped and waxed there and the lady who did them was fabulous. If you could only have seen my eyebrows before and after! I'll definitely be back for more. more

They have all the elements and quality to be consider one of the best nail spa in studio city. thank you for my beauitful nails. Pros: clean, sanitary, price more

The Best Escape from reality 9/26/2006

The Salon is gorgeous and relaxing. You have your own piece of mind there when you just want a short break from work or from home. Most importantly, when I was there getting my nails done, the ladies were very helpful w/ color selection and suggestions as to what was best for me. I am picky, and believe me when I say picky, but everything was very pleasing. A One of a Kind place You Have got to have on your list to Visit. Thanks AQ!!! Pros: Color Selection, Parking, Smells wonderful more

Worst Manicure/Pedicure Ever!! 9/22/2006

I can't believe this place is even in business. The nice decor is very deceiving. My nails were not even cut straight. I had a broken nail and they just left it broken without trying to file it. The manicurists were nice but seemed very inexperienced and nervous. And they were so pushy about upselling everything on their menu. I hate that! My mani/pedi was overpriced for no reason...I definitely won't be back. Cons: parking, manicurists more

Finally! 9/18/2006

It's quite frustrating to take out the time & spend the money to get one's nails done, only to walk out unhappy. After getting my acrylics filled at several valley salons, I was ready to have them removed. I stumbled upon this salon on citysearch and decided to use this visit as my last try. The ambiance was relaxing anc beautiful, the customer service was great and they actually speak English (which enables them to understand what exactly I would like done). They took the time to perfect my nails and they look amazing! I couldn't be happier. Looking forward to going back. more
