    Went in with a dip manicure with tip that was not done well at a different salon and cost me $70. I got a dip fill here and not only did they fix the shape of the tips they did an overall amazing job!!! So happy with how my nails turned out and so so impressed. Definitely worth every penny!!!

    Called ahead for a gel polish color change. Showed up at the agreed upon time. The ladies were friendly, the shop was clean with one other customer. They finished up a multi service on that lady and helped me right away. I just wanted a polish change on a gel manicure I got a week and a half ago at another shop. The girl asked if I wanted my nails cut down, which I did not, I appreciated this as most places will just cut them without asking. She did a great job, charged me a fair rate and I was on my way. I am very happy with the outcome. I visit the area annually and would visit this shop again.

    This is going to be my new go-to nail salon. They were very friendly, tried to keep on time, and did a wonderful job at a great price. I think Tracy was the one who did my nails, she was so genuine and great!

    Excellent customer service!! Today was my first time there, got a mani pedi with some dot work and they did a perfect job for a super affordable price. They were really nice and clean. I went home and didn't like the color I chose, so I went back (which I would never usually do). They were totally understanding and changed the color right away, for free! Support this salon, they are hard workers and just rock.

    This review is way overdue but finally having time to get to it. We went to Disneyland last October and after we went to stay in Newport Beach. Next morning we visited balboa and found this lovely nail shop! My mother got her nails done, My daughter and niece did gel nails and I had a pedicure, awesome service!!! Unfortunately my daughter left her Disney lanyard with all her pins! She loves her lanyard and those things aren't cheap. Unfortunately we found out it was missing when we were already home, 5 hours away from the salon.! I found the salon and messaged them asking if it was there, they responded back and said it WAS left there! They offered to ship it back and I thought that was so nice to go out of their way to do such a thing! Sure enough after giving my info they shipped it off. I didn't tell my daughter she just figured it would be lost forever :( so the day it arrived in the mail I was so happy to have her open it and have her lost lanyard back again! She was so relieved to have it back and super happy! I couldn't thank the salon enough for what they did!! Wish we lived closer to be able to go to this salon all the time! Hope to make our way back one day again after all this Covid mess!

    I had Tracy come to me for an in house appointment and I think this was the best gel nails I have ever had! She took so much time to make sure the shape and everything was even and perfect! Definitely will make the drive to them when they open
