    Cute place nice staff, but my time was not valued. Rescheduled twice and started 15mins late. No compensation for the inconveniences.

    I've been coming to Mandy for a couple times now. This was my first time at her newest location in Carlsbad Village. Parking is available, but there are no reserved spots, I would recommend planning ahead. I love the set up & atmosphere of her shop. I also love how it's appointment based only & you get your nails done one on one. They do offer wine & refreshments. Mandy is very easy to talk to, she's amazing at what she does, highly recommend getting your nails done by her. She is quick & thorough, she brings your nail ideas to life. Mandy's work speaks for itself. What are you waiting for? Go make an appointment! :D

    I've never had my nails done so fast and so well! I waited a week to see if they'd hold up and they do! They're so strong and still so beautiful. I'm really rough and clumsy and always break my nails but these literally chipped my wall when the nail should've broke haha Mandy was wonderful and fast!! She's also the only nail artist who didn't make me feel bad about biting my nails so that was appreciated haha The shop was clean and took all the proper covid safety measures. I can't wait to come back for a fill!

    I’m from out of town and I desperately needed my old powder dip removed and re-done (mid-vacation) and I was able to contact and book MandyQ Nails so easily and quickly. As soon as I walked in, she was ready to go. Quick, clean, talented, very sweet and quite funny too! I don’t typically like to small talk but she was lovely to spend time with. I was in and out in an hour with a great set of nails. Super happy with the quality and the value. I’ll be back again whenever I come to visit my friends in Carlsbad!

    I am debating on this review, I recently discovered this nail salon while I was trying to find a nail salon in August 2018. Since then I have been visiting as much as my wallet will allow me. Gel nails are amazing and I recently took my friend to get her acrylics to dine and she loved it. Since it's such a small salon I was able to convince my boyfriend to come with me and he enjoys getting his pedicure at this salon. But on our last visit, I decided to stick with a regular manicure and pedicure, on both my hands and toes, there was nail polish all over my fingers. Yet, I understood that it was a possibility for nail polish to be out of place and it's not hard to remove that nail polish with a quick shower. The most disappointing part was seeing that my toenails weren't coated evenly, there was a couple of spots where there wasn't even nail polish. The pedicure includes a massage, which had to be skipped because another customer showed up and my pedicure wasn't completed. Overall of this, I was overcharged, the manicure is $22 while the pedicure is $15 I was charged $40 and I left a $6 so in total, I paid $46. I know it's only a couple of dollars but it makes it feel dishonest by overcharging. Lastly, the day after this visit, I took my best friend to get her nails done for her bday,  in the middle of our conversation we mentioned that we would like to go to Vegas soon. And Mandy jumped in saying we should go during the summer so we could dress "sexy" I explained how we aren't those kinds of girls, we are a lot more reserved and we just don't like clothes like that; she made a snarky comment which made my friend and I feel uncomfortable. I will try to visit again to receive a better experience & I will update.

    I have had two wonderful experiences with Mandy! I got so tired of the traditional nail salon experience...I always feel rushed, that the communication is hard or awkward, and I also feel like it's very impersonal and just overall uncomfortable. Mandy makes you feel right at home. She's cool to chat or just let you do your thing on your phone. When I made a mistake by wearing closed-toed shoes and smudging my pedi, she re-did both of my big toes for free no questions asked. Super customer-oriented. I love the small little shop in charming Carlsbad as well. There's only room for a few people to be in there so it doesn't feel like you have a room full of people staring at you during what's supposed to be a relaxing, pampering experience.

    Mandy has done my nails for a couple years now and she has never failed me! Wether it's long or short nails she always does an amazing job and really knows what she's doing! She's always listened to my needs! Highly recommend!
