THE WORST 11/24/2010

Save your money and YOUR NAILS. Not worth it and so over priced. more


I am so far from anyone who complains but after what they did to me the DAY BEFORE MY WEDDING, I just had to share so it did not happen to anyone else. I walked in with long nails that were covered in the UV gel. I wanted to get the permanent french for the wedding and my nails trimmed a bit. She took the clipper and went across my nails while talking to the other nail tech next to her and snapped off 3 of 10 nails down to the tip of the finger. After that she said...""your so dainty you should have short nails for wedding!"" The cut them all down to the tip. I HAD NO NAILS FOR MY WEDDING. Then after this, she knew I was upset, but I was still going to tip her. For my pedicure and fill it was over 200.00. I was floored, so I could not pay all in cash so I gave her my card and put down a 15.00 tip, planning to pay her the remainder of her tip in cash. As I was getting the cash out of my wallet she made a comment to the nail tech next to her then she said...oh what a lousy tip, less then 10%! I was so fuming I took out the 20.00 I was going to give her and said had you NOT OPENED YOUR mouth you would have gotten a decent tip despite you deserving ANYTHING after ruining my nails. I am 35 and have been doing my nails for years. I just moved to NYC to live with my husband and I was looking for a new nail place, that was the ONLY reason I chose this place. The reviews looked decent enough but DO NOT BE FOOLED. It was dirty, they are over priced and most of All RUDE!!!!! I hope this helps someone else so they don't have the same experience I did. Even the lady in the chair next to me was horrified and had been complaining the entire time to me that they were doing such a bad job on her! THEY SHOULD NOT EVEN GET A STAR but I had to put something. more

Totally Overated 6/24/2008

I went in a few times but just couldn't go back. If you want a manicure they are ok but the pedicures are horrible. I went in the middle of the week, less crowded but the women doing the pedicures were soaking my blouses with all their splashing. They don't help you down after a pedicure and the floor is very slippery, no one comes by to mop. I made the mistake of getting a brazilian wax and the room was the size of a linen closet. There was no where to hang your clothes, not even behind the door. I had to place my things on the floor. When I got dressed my clothes had wax all over. When I spoke to manager about what had happened, I got a blank stare, no apology no nothing. I will never go back and I will tell everyone to stay away.\r Pros: cute decoration, ok manicure Cons: don't get pedicures, or waxing, very unprofessional more

princess for a day! 11/28/2007

from the moment you walk in, to the moment you walk out, it's such a pampering experience! the people are friendly and the atmosphere warm and, dare i say, pink!! it didn't feel like your everyday nail salon... all of the employees were attentive and nice (not to receive that extra dollar of tip either!), the interior very clean and impressively neat. my french mani came out perfect and lasted for quite a long while. it's a kid-friendly place from what i saw when i walked in... they have a miniature vanity playset for your little ones! all in all, i think i've found my weekly nail spa! Pros: service, atmosphere, decor more

You Deserve a Break! Great Service! 8/18/2007

I've been going to DD since it open and very happy to have it in the neighborhood. My daughter has had two fabulous birthday parties. I have experience excellent service each time. The salon has a very welcoming atmosphere, we love the variety of videos. Thursdays and Fridays is girls night out, great place to meet the girls after work. If you go on Saturday and Sunday morning they have coffee, great place to meet the girls after a night out. I tried all levels of the manicures and pedicures and after a long day it's worth it. I get all of my waxing needs taking care of and the massages are great. The staff has strong hands.\r \r Compared to other corner salons I appreciate the non-rushed service, the friendly staff. It nice to have a salon who is not afraid to give you water on those hot days. As a recruiter in NY and a PTA parent I can tell you that this is certainly worth the money. I have never heard anything bad from any my neighbors, PTA parents or my daughter's friends.Their gift certificartes make great gifts for Christmas, Birthdays and Mother's Day. Love the later hours, staff, service, videos, drinks, water and you meet a lot of great people. Great place to bond! Pros: Great service, friendly staff, fabulous ambience, a must have! Cons: Service is so relaxing, you fall to sleep more

Great Service and FUN!! 8/16/2007

This place is amazing. My daughter had her birthday there and it was the best ever. All of the technicians were sweet, experienced and made her fell like a princess (her friends were just as happy). I had them do gel wraps/extensions and I can't believe how long it has lasted. The Capri pedicure was divine. The jelly like foot bath was an experience and they even got my feet silky soft. I recommend it highly to all moms and their kids. It is clean, friendly and FUN for all. Pros: Service, Attention to detail, Clean, FUN more

Horrible Service! 7/2/2007

I have been getting my nails done for years and years religiously and I am an executive in the beauty industry. I decided to go here after hearing and reading all the raves about it for a manicure. First off my manicurist was very rude and unfriendly- she looked at my nails with disgust because they were done at a different place. Then she hurt me many times!! I kept telling her and she wouldn't ease it up! I even left bleeding a little at the cuticles and she didn't apologize or anything. I'll admit the actual manicure itself was decent but very overpriced. At the price they charge I shouldn't be in pain during a manicure and leave with bloody cuticles. Never going back! Oh and on top of that it was a thursday night and I was never offered their ""famed"" cocktail. I guess it explains why the place was pretty empty except for a bunch of old homely ladies who were drunk. They really should be careful how they treat their customers because you never know who anyone is- I will definitely tell colleagues and my people in the industry. Pros: Cute Atmosphere Cons: Bad Service, Over priced more

Pretty awful 5/11/2007

I go for manis and pedis all the time and was really excited to go to DD last week with my sister. Maybe the other locations are good but this one was TERRIBLE. They were playing the same three music videos over and over again, the staff was rude and rushed, and the job was nothing to write home about. And it cost $80!!! Honestly, you get much better service and value from the corner place that charges $35 for a mani, peid and mini massage! I would never recommend this place to anyone. It's too bad because it's so cute from the outside. more
