I have had acrylic nails forever, so I feel I am a nail connoisseur. This is a very clean establishment and I have never had any hygiene problems. They used that "blue" stuff to soak all of their nail brushes and they are constantly cleaning their pedicure chairs. The staff is always very nice although, this is another asian salon that talks Vietnamese to each other. This makes one feel uncomfortable at times, but overall, they are very nice.
