Ok, I'm not sure what spa ""david182"" went to, but I go La Di Spa for weekly appointments. Here is my experience so far... I am a forty-something and find the store peaceful, playful yet sophisticated and highly professional. I have been there when there were young girls getting their nails done, and it is still a quiet place. As far as cleanliness, they do sanitize their equipment after every use. Even the tub that you soak your feet in has a disposable liner that is replaced for each client. I've used the bathroom once, and did not see any critters. I know that they do not use acetone or nail color with formaldahyde, which is why you do pay more here. BUT, my manicures always last the full week, unlike most other shops who don't prep the nail the way Brandi does. Many Saturdays my nails still look perfect from the week before. I know they market to the families, but I'm single, no kids and I highly recommend La Di Spa to others. The parking is great too.
Pros: Ambience, parking, quality of work and high quality products
