Virtual Nails 3/23/2010

I had been getting Gel Tips for so long and while I was searching for an alternative option (mainly to save money), I stumbled upon Dashing Diva where I was suggested Virtual Nails... I was skeptical at first for two reasons - 1) price of $35 - I thought that Virtual Nails wouldn't look as nice b/c I was so used to paying close to $100 for Gel Tips in the past... and 2) the way it was explained to me reminded me of the do-it-yourself press-on nails that you can find at any drugstore in the country! After reading many positive reviews and press coverages on DD's exclusive Virtual Nails, I decided to get them done. Pros: best alternative to Acrylics or Gel Tips more

Clean Clean is All I Need 2/9/2010

I went to this location for my birthday 2/9/10 to treat myself. When I arrived the receptionist, a young man was really nice and listened to my concerns about nail extensions and hurting my nails. The place is beautiful, really calm, not loud and filled with alot of different cultures. My main concern walking in was saving my nails from any destruction ive avoided over the yrs. and the guy sent me to Amrita who calmed my fears. I tried the virtual nails which I think was fully worth it for the cleanliness and expertise this woman put in. She used new tools and even let me keep my buffer and emery board after. the whole staff was nice, they offered me tea, juice or water during my stay and informed me about the virtual nails to a T. I would go back to try their other services but I wouldnt be a recurring customer because the prices are a bit steep but if trying to stay away from sum fungus crawling up your leg in these little mom & pop nail shops is the price I have to pay then I'll gladly come back to Dashing Diva. Pros: Uses new and/or sanitized tools more

Love the free cosmo special 4/6/2009

how can you beat free cosmos when you purchase any of their services on a Thursday or Friday night, 6pm-9pm. That is a good deal to me! Pros: free cosmos more


The owner George is sooooo cool... he just made my experience there ten times better! i dont know what these other negative reviews about...sounds like the first girl is a little complicated and picky...go home and do ur own nails...considering it was free maybe you should appreciate it, my nails looked gorgeous...and FYI the nail technicians all do massages as well, so if a nail technician did a massage on another girl on a busy day it was only to give EVERYONE faster and better service which is dam good to me! the atmosphere is phenomenal and i just LOVE girls night out thursdays and fridays the cosmos are delicious... receptionist are friendly and outgoing, technicians might not understand much english but they sure do a hell of a good job pretending they do LOL all in all... a great place to just unwind and take your mind off from a bad breakup or a long day of stressful work... i recommend it to ANY girl or guy at that! Pros: everything Cons: nothing more

My Fingers Hurt as I'm Typing This! 7/1/2008

I had a free manicure there because of some bad service. Thanks. I thought. I went to cash in my free manicure, and I regret it! I thought, ""They're just nails, they'll grow back if it's not very good."" I never thought I'd leave in pain. I sat down with a friendly manicurist and when she began filing my pinky nail the problems started. She began filing the left side of each of my nails obsessively and barely touching the right. She moved on to my ring finger... AGAIN! Obsessive filing of the left side and none of the right. On the next finger I stopped her and said: They're not even, do you mind filing both sides the same? She didn't really understand me. I fiddled with my fingers a bit to examine more closely what she thought she was doing. I realized then that she had nearly filed the left side of two of my nails raw. As I'm typing right now, it hurts to use those two fingers and put pressure against the keyboard. Now I like my nails short, but really? I got up to leave and several people surrounded me to 'see what was wrong'. What is wrong is you have a nail inept nail technician! They sat me down with the 'master technician' to finish my nails. She chatted me up and was nice. I left with a mediocre manicure with some sloppy edges. I will NOT be going back, I promise you that. Pros: they use new tools for each manicure Cons: everything else imaginable more

try the upper east side location if yu want posh 6/16/2008

I would agree with the previous post the concept of this place is great but this particular location doesnt follow through..I felt rushed for the extra $ I paid for my ped and manicure..both of which totalled close to $60 ..the nail tech wasnt really focused on the details of my experience...The place was minimally staffed (had to wait 30 mins to be seen & I called ahead with an apt.) Pros: decor Cons: cost more

Doesn't really feel worth it 4/6/2008

Yes, the decor is nice and seems very pampering, but it doesn't seem worth the higher cost ($52 for manicure & pedicure) aside from the decor. They have a good concept of taking your coats, offering tea (inconsistent offering), and providing clean, newly opened tools...but service doesn't seem to be consistent. After it was over, no one came to check up on us, helped us wrap our toes, get our coats, etc...The girl at the front desk was busy eating chips and chatting up with her friend to realize we are just standing there waiting for someone to help us...So even though it's a good concept, they did not follow through to make you feel like you're pampered to spend the extra bucks here rather than the standard salon down the block. Pros: Pretty decor, seems clean, manicure lasted Cons: Not attentive, high cost more

  • The Union Square location of the branded nail chain brings a ""walk-ins welcome"" sensibility to a spa-like beauty experience. To say Dashing Diva is clean would be an understatement; it's...
