I read some pretty great reviews of this place so I decided to try it. Most people have said that Silk Nail Salon is a really good deal for the price, but after having tried it, I think it's frankly a bit overrated.
First of all, you pay $40 for a mani/pedi. At an upscale salon, you can pay well over that just for a pedicure. So in that sense, it's a good deal. But you're not really getting that much more for your money than some other less expensive places.
The decor really isn't that nice and the technicians are always talking to each other and not really paying attention to what they are doing. I can't say that I remember them opening up a new sterilized package of utensils either.
$40 is a bit pricey just for them to rub some cheap lotion on your feet. I guess you really do get what you pay for.
