I went to Chic recently for a manicure. I used to go there when it was Crystal Nails (up until a few months ago) and I was surprised to see the change of management.

What a disappointment with Chic. The nail tech was rude. She sped

I don't know what all the negativity is about but it seems to be coming from people who don't even live in the River North area. I'm a regular at Chic Nail Bar and Spa and it's a great neighborhood place. The staff is always friendly and courteous. They make you feel "at home" when you're there and provide good services at great prices. And if something goes wrong with your mani or pedi, they're fair about making it right. Also, for those who don't know because you're not regular customers, they've just purchased the place and are making some wonderful improvements which is why there are some areas of the spa that are currently under construction. When they're finished with the spa updates, not only are you going to get great nail services but you'll be able to relax in an updated, modern environment too. I say come to Chic Nail Bar and Spa - especially if you're a River North resident!

This place is fantastic. Very clean location. Very thorough, long-lasting Non-Chip Manicure. I was so sad to move out of Chicago because I was losing the best across river north areas EVER!!! I would come back to this place when I am back in town.

I have to say, I'm kinda surprised by the negative reviews on yelp. I have only had great experiences when I've come here.

My first visit here was afer I got my first paycheck from an investment firm internship I was working at around the block. Needless to say, at 16, that money was burning a hole in my pocket and needed to be spent. I came in at 5:05PM on a Friday and was IMMEDIATELY seated (and the place was packed!). I honestly don't know what was the point of signing in. I quickly picked my OPI color (extremely extensive collections of OPI, Essie, and other no name polishes + they always have the newest collections) and the girl who did my pedi went to work. After it was done and dried, it looked like I had 5 coats on, but it would not smudge! Awesome!

My mani was the same color and done just as well. I cannot possible say enough nice things about them. I even came back one time a week before prom to get acrylics (lame, I know) and I've never gotten a better job. The other places I've been to left me feeling like my nails were fake(obviously, but they felt uncomfortable). This place, I honestly did not feel like they would break if I pushed my keys into the doorknob the wrong way. My nails just felt like they had magically grown.

Definitely my to go place, haven't gone elsewhere for years.

I bought the buywithme coupon for a pedicure and non-chip manicure.

After reading others' reviews, I decided to check Chic Nail & Spa...but not at lunch time. I stopped in after work at around 4:45 and was taken immediately (I had made an appointment for 5:00).

Nancy did my pedicure. She was extremely thorough. At times I felt she might be getting a bit rough, but then again, my feet were likely pretty gross since I went too long between pedis. She was not rushed at all with the pumice, which is very important to me. The only thing I like most about the experience was the exfoliating scrub. Btw, they also have really nice spa chairs (I just wish they came with instructions, I had no idea how the hell to work the controls).

Nancy also did the non-chip mani. She was very skillful and helpful with the large selection of colors. She didn't rush me at all to choose out the color. My mani looks lovely and may actually keep me from chewing nervously on my nails in times of stress. My mani still look amazing after few days. I usually chips it the next day. I'll definitely go back. I would highly recommend to get the non-chip mani with Nancy at Chic Nail Bar & Spa.She is the best I found so far in the city:)

I had a very good experience at Chic nail Nail Bar & Spa.

The location is a little out of the way, so the Groupon was the reason why I went. But the salon was clean, modern and everyone there was friendly from the woman who worked on me to the getleman whom I assumed was the owner seemed to be walking around making sure everyone is happy.

It was a "spa" treatment in line with others I've gotten in that price range. I don't know what you get for one of those $28 Aqua-Spa mani-pedis and I can't imagine it's worth the money, but other posters might have expected that. I have no complaints about Chic Nail Bar & Spa.

I sat in a massage chair, had a good foot soak, exfoliation, good foot and lower leg massage - as a massage therapist I was impressed - and solid polish job. She was thorough but not rough at all. The mani was a similar experience.It has been over a week and the polish is still good. No chips.

All in all a good experience and got the job done. I would go back. I would recommend them for a good, and relaxing mani/pedi in the city.

At one third the cost it's not The Peninsula. It's clean, efficient, popular. It's popular enough that several regulars dropped in while I waited and was at the tub, including one that was inserted between finishing my pedi and the start of my manicure. I was cool with it but it's tacky. She had her brows threaded while I waited and watched a bit of a movie which was playing.

The quality of the pedicure was tops. My manicure was adequate. I knocked my nails into the drying fan, so it was partly my fault it was screwed up a little. They had the main color I wanted. I came in armed with three choices. They had two of the three, including the one I was really planning on getting.

So overall, it worked out and I would go back. I would especially go back because how clean it is, how close and the relative cost juxtaposed against The Penisnsula (which I love but can't go to too frequently :) - hah hah!

Unlike other Yelp ladies that experienced an unpleasant service with the Groupon, my friend and I actually enjoyed our recent visit. Joanne and Nancy were the two technicians that did our spa mani-pedi. They weren't necessarily oober-friendly (which I actually appreciated), but they weren't rude either. We got the service we were promised based on the Groupon deal --- the exfoliation and the cooling gel alongside the mani-pedi. I did feel that the place was a bit too booked (it was a Friday afternoon, about 1pm). But the ladies didn't seem to rush with us. I also really liked the massage chair which I got to control using the remote during the 30 minutes of my pedicure.

The hygiene practices could use a little improvement -- but that's a blanket statement that applies to most nail salons. Come and give it a try and disregard of other bad reviews about this salon.
