    I am new to the area and referred by a friend as I was looking for a great reliable nail salon. I tried about 3 other salons in the area & was not excited. But found Creatips is it! I love their spa chairs, great color options (and they stay up to date!), and every person is welcoming and helpful. I usually come in when I need some relaxation and am never judged for closing my eyes in the spa chair . Have not had a bad experience yet! Support your local business and come by!

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Creatips. The staff is so friendly, they remember your preferences and are always happy to see you. They don't pressure you to upgrade, only make suggestions if needed. Mindy and Katyln give the best manicures and Steve and Linda will make your feet gorgeous. I moved an hour away and still make the drive to get my nails dome. Make an appt today. You won't be disappointed!

    I came in today for a dip manicure and a pedicure and I couldn't be happier. Everyone there was friendly and accommodating to all the clients I saw come in. I would highly recommend and I will be coming back to them!

    I just had to write another review because I am always so pleased with Mindy and her staff. You can go to any one of the ladies and they will take care of you. The most consistent nail place I've ever been to. Mindy keeps high standards for her techs which is why she won't just hire anyone. Thanks ladies for always treating me well and giving me the BEST pedicures and gel acrylics in all of north county!!!!!!

    I LOVE all of the ladies here. This place is so consistently good. My nails always last longer than any place I've ever gone. They work together as a team, which is awesome! My gel pedicure last forever and the dip nails are the BEST in town. It's clean and professional and super friendly.

    Highly recommend! I went for the first time today and the staff was very friendly and made you feel like family. They did a great job on my manicure/pedicure and the price was very reasonable. The facility was very clean, clean equipment, and nice massaging chairs. I paid by cash for discount and really enjoyed the #3 pedicure (callous removal, wax, sugar scrub). I would recommend calling ahead for an appointment. I will definitely be going back!

    Beautiful salon! Mindy and Katelyn are very welcoming and professionals. I've tried many nail salons in the area and this one has been the best quality in terms of product and services and most importantly they have implemented great Covid precautions. Every visit is always a wonderful experience. My nails look great ! Thank you Mindy for your patience and hard work. You are the Best!

    Torn by this review... service done a couple of days ago .the end result was nice , staff was nice , but major sterility concerns. I got a basic pedicure. Problem was no gloves were used. Instruments did not appear sterilized. The same lady who did my pedicure placed her instruments under a towel my service was done and rolled her work drawers to the next individual and used them again for her pedicure- they were not cleaned (I witnessed her pull them out again from under the towel) . No sterile pack. Dremmels were used from client to client without being changed or cleaned - witness this from two staff members. No washing of hands between customers. Want to make this a favorite spot but this was just too much.

    Absolutely poor customer service! Is there a zero star rating? I came in with my daughter and they told us to wait and pick our colors and we sat there for 20 min waiting. Then 3 other people came in claiming they had appointments. The owner told us to go away, because she got those other folks to take care of. HOW HARD IS IT TO SAY: “BY APPOINTMENT ONLY” or “COME BACK LATER WE HAVE APPOINTMENTS COMING” ? Never coming back there ever again, after having to waste my time and then being turned down completely…

    I am new to the area and I been to a lot of salons but this was not it. I went in for a regular pedicure and the lady with short hair who attended me did not know what the hell she was doing. It took 3 people to take care of me. I was so shocked when she wasn't even wearing gloves while handling customers. Honestly that's so unsanitary. I am from LA I since worse and this is the worst. I stopped her half way. She was too rough cut my nails way too short. Looked like she didn't wanna be there. It took three people to try to fix my service, but one of them try to justify that they take out ingrown at the end of service after your polish cause she the only one who knows how. I wonder why did you even offer this service if you don't have nail techs that know?
