I've been getting french manicures for a few years now and I've probably been to at least twenty different salons over the years trying repeatedly to find someone who can do it right. After many disappointing experiences I managed to find Margarita Kipnis at Joseph Cozza Salon in San Francisco.
Margarita's french manicures are the best I have ever seen. And this not only comes from the experience's of getting my own nails done, but my experiences with many, many women I have known over the years getting french manicures and frequently complaining about how rare it is that someone gets the job done properly. Margarita is highly skilled and she does a flawless job. If she makes a mistake, she corrects it without complaint. She is also a lot of fun to talk to and she has a good eye for what colors go well with her customers and their current attire.
She also offers a wide variety of professional pedicures with a colorful selection of treatment types and options.
I have been going to Margarita once a week for two months now and I have no complaints so far, which is more than I can say for all of the other manicurists/pedicurists that I have been to over the years.
Just so you know, I am not the only saying "Best French Manicure" in the "Bay Area" about Margarita. Paste those two quoted strings in goolge and check out the result.
French Manicure: $32
Pedicure: Depends on the Pedicure; not cheap but well worth the price
