I had such a great experience at Venus salon. I would never have known it was there until my mom told me about it. I think the best way to describe it is cosmopolitan as everyone in there is from all kinds of different places and they use a lot of top quality products, especially European products, which just adds to the worldly feel.
The biggest things I liked was the attention to detail, the really super nice people, and the fact that they are super clean with great products. They had OPI, Essie, and Orly nail polish, among others, which is something I definitely like to see when I am paying to get my hands and feet done. The prices were super competitive too. You definitely get your monies worth.
I really had a great experience. I think that the sort of 'any ol' nail salon' feeling to the place kind of masks the great service, the clean environment, and the nice people.
My mom has been there before and her manicure/pedicure lasted for 2 weeks without chipping or fading.
The only real drawback was that it does take a little bit extra time compared to a lot of salons that just want you in and out as fast as possible. I think it's worth it because it is CLEAN and my nails looked great.
Next time I am going try a haircut or a facial too.
I almost don't want to share the little secret to make sure I can always get an appointment!! :-) But I think it's too good of a treasure to keep quiet.
Pros: Very Clean, Careful, Great prices, Nice people
Cons: A little slow
