Best

So friendly, clean and the largest nail salon I have ever been in NYC. The spa pedicures are delicious. A FIND!

If you want a relaxing pedicure/manicure this is not the place. The technician was a high speed dervish and didn't even bother with my heels. I didn't get the color I requested f...

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/3/2012

The place is clean and spacious but it is unpleasant to go to get my nails done: as soon as you enter the owner (a sort of an aggressive Quentin Tarantino actress) welcomes you with a rude ""what do you want?"" . The employees are terrified by her. In addition, The employees talk to each other quietly in Korean and making comments during the work. That it is not polite to the customer. Then the women constantly ask you if you want to add anything with the evident intention of making more money and as soon as you ask for something the first response is ""it costs you ...."". When the service is finished immediately all approach the cash desk and immediately give you a receipt waiting for a tip. And what the dickens!!! ... just a bit of kindness... more

great neighborhood nail salon 3/3/2010

i've been going here since 2005. i am a regular customer and i've always had the best experience. nice people, nice atmosphere and super affordable. for those that think this place is expensive, i am shocked. the regular mani/pedi is sooo cheap for manhattan especially for hells kitchen. i've had my nails done all over the city and this place by far is the best deal with great quality. plus, i have never ever have to wait. those that live in the area know that this place rocks and if you don't agree well go somewhere else. Pros: mani/pedi service, people & venue more

only good for polish change 2/20/2010

If you want a relaxing pedicure/manicure this is not the place. The technician was a high speed dervish and didn't even bother with my heels. I didn't get the color I requested for my manicure either. If you are in a hurry and need just a polish change, then this is the place. No pleasant amenities, no great service, but it is clean. Pros: clean Cons: rush through, mediocre job more

worst place in nyc 7/8/2009

I signed up JUST to write a review about this place. Looking past the fact that its toooo overpriced, the technicians and owners harass you into tipping what they consider fair...I usually tip very well and i tip according to the service i get, but this is ridiculous. My last visit there, i decided to give them one last try as i live in the same building and it's convenient, i went in for a half arm wax...not only did she bruise me, but she also had the nerve to charge me an extra 10$ for a few stray hairs i had on my knuckles!! it took her less than 5 seconds!! The owners are terrible and do not know a THING about customer service. Cons: worst place ever,a min of 15% tip OVER their high prices! more

This review is for Maria 4/10/2009

The only reason I go to Ivy is for Maria's services. Whether its a manicure, pedicure or brow waxing, she's the only attendant I'll let service my needs. If she's not there, I leave. I received mediocre service from another technician, and I too, was bullied by the owner to tip more. Had I received better service, I would've tipped accordingly. Pros: Maria's the best! Convenient, nice space. Cons: Somewhat pricey, owners could be more personable. more

Surprised by Negative Comments 4/1/2009

Went during the evening and as soon as I got there was greeted with smiles. Impressed by the clean, modern look of the the spacious place. The lady who did my manicure was very nice and did a great job. She also gave me a massage, which was super relaxing. When I was getting ready to head out, the man at the desk helped me put my coat while I was chatting on my cell phone. Didn't get a negative vibe at all. In fact, the reason why I came across this page was because I was looking to go there again and wanted to make sure I had the address. I was thinking of going back there to get a pedicure. I liked that they had their own more private area in the back for pedicures away from the storefront. All in all, I was very satisfied! FOUR STARS. Pros: bright, clean, friendly Cons: a bit pricey more

Overpriced Pushy and Unfriendly 2/6/2009

Do not go to Ivy Nail and Spa. It is a clean evironment, but the owner (aka the man behind the counter) is a real piece of work. I got a mediocre pedicure (I could have done better on myself at home) and so I tipped accordingly. I gave about 10%. The owner then proceeded to hound me to give 15%, saying it was ""common sense"" and required, and wouldn't run my card until I agreed to. I finally made a big enough stink, telling him that not only is tipping NOT required, but if someone doesn't do a good job, they're lucky to get anything. I ended up not tipping at all. I will not be bullied! I brought 3 friends to the spa that day, 2 got mani/pedi, and the other one showed up later. I told her not to get a service there, and I will tell everyone else I meet. more

what a waste of time and money! 1/7/2009

I recently got a twenty minutes back massage here. more

Nice 4/17/2008

Nice Salon. Clean and Pretty. The man at the front desk is a little unfriendly. He does welcome the guest, wouldn't hurt to smile and be friendly. Pros: clean and nice atmosphere Cons: expensive manicure, unfriendly man at the counter more

Great Nail spa! 2/26/2008

I just moved to NY from LA and this is the best nail spa in the area! Clean, very friendly and prices are great! more

Simple, chic, clean and meticulous 9/13/2007

Ive Nails is a very simple, but very clean and well-maintainted nail salon. The prices are reasonable for NYC, and they always leave your nails gorgeous. Pedicures have your feet soaking in warm water with fresh flowers and real citrus, and manicures are fast and beautiful. Every nail technician there is very thorough, and for the price and the style, its highly recommended. Pros: Cost, location, cleanliness, attention to detail more
