Cute salon, reasonable price, friendly service. I used to look forward to the heated neck pillows until my last visit in April. The pillow handed to me was not very warm -- I thought at the time it was just handed to me after another customer had used it.

Two weeks later, a very bad case of scabies. I can't prove it, but I'm sure that neck pillow was the source of the scabies because that's exactly where I got the scabies -- where the pillow touched my skin above the v-neck of my shirt. Nowhere else. After reviewing my history, my doctor also thought it was likely due to the neck pillow.

Gross. Never going back there again!

This is my favorite place to go for a manicure / pedicure. The
lounge is done in a cozy, girly french country style - very laura ashley - complete with comfy chairs, great magazines, and candy to snack on.

It's not glam or posh but very relaxing and pampering in a warm, friendly sort of way. The prices are great too - what's not to love!

Well, one thing actually. I did get an eyebrow/upper lip wax that I have to say was disappointing. It was done in dim lighting, and when I got home I noticed that a lot was missed. This is the only thing keeping me from rating this a five...go for your nails but skip the wax!

PROS: Great atmosphere, good service, reasonably priced
CONS: Skip the waxing services

unfortunately i got a finger/nail infection at this place after getting a manicure. i don't think that is a frequent occurrence, and was reassured by the management that they will investigate to insure it will not happen to future clients. i liked the place very much other than that... it's cute. however, i still wanted to post to let others know so that it doesn't happen to you too!

This place is great! Right away, you walk in and you feel at home in the living room type ambience. They were on time, did not rush the mani/pedi and just let you relax with your sipping tea. And, of course, the mani/pedi job was very nice too. I highly recommend this place, in fact I may see you there!

I travel a lot-mostly to manhattan and charleston. Always getting my nails done. I have to say tthis place sets the standard. Rose petals in the water to soak my feet, and got to pick out the scent of the bath salts for the water. My friend and i sat next to each other on a very comfortable sofa sipping the perfect cup of tea in the perfect cup. Incredible attendtion to detail and service.

Since moving to SOMA, I've been looking for a nail salon i can call my own. I've been going to this other one, which is only so-so, but my neighbor told me about Polished Lounge. What a gem. The place is beautiful. I've seen nothing like it before. They're friendly, and best of all, they're GOOD. Their prices are a steal for all the extras you get at this place. Best of all, my manicure and pedicure lasted two weeks. I'm a new fan.

I have been to the Polished Lounge thrice in the last year. I was happy with my first visit. The manicure was decent, ambience cute and it is a hop-skip-n-jump from my place in Soma.

I went back for mani-pedi's the next two times and my experience has been nothing to write home about... The nail polish chips/ comes off almost immediately (in a day to a week in my case) probably because they do the job in such a hurry, the manicurist used her fingernails to remove excess paint from mine (Yikes! Please use a wooden pick or cotton) and the pedicure was ok but did not refresh my tired feet.

Unfortunately, I did not find the much-acclaimed customer service as appealing either :( The woman at the counter found something smirk-worthy about my name/ profile that she wouldn't tell me about. That is rude and insensitive, not 'polished'. They offered sandals for some customers but did not in my case. Some consistency in service, please.

In short, this place is not for the discerning customer.

I took a friend here for a birthday gift and we were so pleasantly surprised. The decor of the salon was gorgeous, complete with extremely comfy chairs to sit in while getting serviced. the staff was very friendly and did a great job with our manicures and pedicures. Great ambience and great experience!

I am sorry to say I was somewhat disappointed with my first pedicure there. I was not wowed like I had hoped given the salon's 9.8 rating from CitySearch. PROS: friendly reception, beautiful interior decor, comfortabe seat, nice touches with the heated massage lotion and offerings of tea/water. CONS: reused nail file and buffer (yes, I can tell; this makes me wonder whether the metal tools were sanitized; I am very picky when it comes to cleanliness), the technician rushed with buffing my nail and callus and a a little rough cleaning under my nails with her tool. If I were to come back, I would most likely bring my own nail tools for my own peace of mind.

This is the cutest nail salon I've ever been to!! I love the little touches that make this place so great. The manicurists are so nice and very skilled. They alwasy call you by your name. They pay a lot of attention to detail here. I love the warm neck wrap , the tea, the rose petals in the water for your pedicure and they even offered to clean my jewelry! They always accomodate me with my appointments and everyone is so nice! The front is filled with cute jewelry, purses and the cutest baby gifts. This is my favorite nail salon in the city!

Sophia is the best!! I go there for a brazillian which everyone knows is never pleasant, but Sophia does such a great job and its the least painful job I have ever had. The atmosphere is really inviting and relaxing. I have tried so many places for this service and I have yet to find one that is as decent as Sophia (not to mention at a fraction of the cost!)

I love this place. I've been getting my nails done here since I moved from NY over a year ago. After reading about it in Daily Candy I had to try it and ever since I've been hooked especially now that I work around the corner. The reason for my review is that I recently planned a pre-wedding mani-pedi party there and was so thrilled with how it turned out I had to write about it. Because there were so many of us (18) they closed it to the public and allowed me to bring in champagne and wine. We had so much fun, the entire staff was so accomodating and delightful. It will forever live as a fond memory and completely enhanced a magical wedding weekend for me and my guests.

Visiting from NY, we stayed at the St. Regis, and enjoyed our stay in SF. In need of a pedicure before a wedding, I was told the best in town is Polished Lounge. After a short walk, I was seated and treated to the best pedicure ever - the Paradise Found. The thorough pampering and graceful treatment was far above any pedicure I've had in NY or LA, even in a day spa. This salon is truly special in so many ways, including their very cute gift boutique. Apparently, they've also been voted the best by a couple of magazines. Well deserved. Back to my NY Times, sipping cappuccino, with my feet up on the ottoman, still looking good a week later, I wish I was still at that quaint little salon, wtih those graceful ladies going at my little toes :)

I have had a lot of pedicure's in my day and this one was awful! Yes the atmosphere is cute and quaint but the service was awful! I brought a whole group of g-friends (8) in for my sister's bachelorette party and we all got the Mani/pedi combo for $50. (including mandatory $10 gratuity which in my opinion made the service even worse!) Some of the ladies were friendly, the hostess definately was, but the woman who did my m/p was not at all nice, let alone a good service provider. She kept grabbing my leg and pushing it to stay straight up in the footrest. Excuse me for wanting to relax during my pedicure! and she barely even serviced my heals and pads. I regularly get a better service at Grand Nails in Oakland! for half the price and the people there are lovely and nice! imagine that?

enough ranting, I just dont want others to go there thinking it is going to be the "best pedicure in town" and be totally disappointed like I was (and the majority of my party). Cute goes a long way, but the bottom line is I wanted a good Manicure and Pedicure that would last through the weekend for my sister's wedding. I had to go to Grand Nails on Wednesday because my manicure was already trashed. (i was at polished on a sunday, pathetic!)

thats my two cents.

I really can't explain how great this place is... Polished Lounge is the best day spa EVER! I've been to a lot of places that are overpriced hoping to find what I found at this place for a lot less than other salons. From the time I walked into Polished Lounge I was impressed. It's absolutely adorable and impeccable. The Brazilian wax is as painless as they get. Sophia is really sweet and makes an otherwise extremely awkward and painful procedure very comfortable by helping you breathe and talking to you the whole time. Unlike other places I've gone to, I spent most of my time with her laughing instead of crying. She's the GREATEST! I followed up my braxilian with a pedicure which was sooooooo relaxing. My friends and I got the paradise found pedicure and found that it was worth every single cent and more. These girls really know what they're doing. The icing on the cake is that when we left we smelled wonderful. I don't know if it was the warm scented back pillow, the delicious strawberry tea, the foot baths, the warm lotion that they massaged our legs with, the rose petals, or the white tea foot masks, but the place in no way smells like a nail salon or leaves you smelling like one. There is no sales pressure but once you're there you'll want everything and every service. In short, GO TO POLISHED LOUNGE... you won't regret it. I can't wait to go back.

I had the best experience today. Great service...I felt like a princess. The atmosphere is relaxing and charming. I thought I had good experiences at ZaZa...but this is better by far in all regards. If you go on a weekend you can park right at the front door!
I'll definitely be a regular client.

I love this place! It is so cute! It is really well decorated and smells like flowers, not nail polish. You sit in plush chairs instead of the spa chairs and get to choose a scent for your pedicure bath. I was so relaxed sitting there with my cup of tea and listening to ella fitzgerald. As soon as I left I called my girlfriends and told them that I have to take them there!

My girlfriends and I decided to have our mani/pedi party at the Polished Lounge and we have ALL agreed that it was truly an experience. Pauline and her staff were exceptional and the service we received (down to the details) were truly above and beyond other mani/pedi shops where they just sit you down on the spa chairs and let the chairs do the work. The pedi treatments in the basins with rose petals and fragrant powders were a nice touch. My mani/pedi both lasted for weeks and endured even the tough gardening work. We will return... and VERY soon!

I've been coming to Polished Lounge for over a year now, and I'm a die hard fan of the place. From the abundance of 'goodies' (like jewelry, skincare products, luscious lip treats, and handbags) to pick from in the front of the store, to the absolutely delightful staff, you can never get enough. If you're looking to get your first Brazilian, or are just looking for a comfortable place to have your general waxing services done, this is definitely the spot. Pauline and her girls are super nice. The atmosphere of the store is divine because once you sit in one of the comfy plush chairs, soaking your toes in the pretty basins with lemon slices, rose petals, and delicious scented bon bon soaps...you're simply in heaven.

The area is redeveloping, so don't expect the looks of King St., or Union St. just yet because of the Bay Bridge work. Take it from someone who lives up the block, the street parking is fine. This isn't one of those uber commercialized places that I'd take just ANYONE to. It's a special spot, one that I'd reserve to bring JUST the VIP status folks in my life.

Hope you all enjoy this spot as much as I do...

After reading the glowing reviews here, I thought I'd give this place a try. And, the reviews were spot-on. This place is adorable and the people are so nice! Great pedicure and a fabulous foot massage. Calm, pretty, relaxing environment--perfect for a pedi during lunchtime to get away from the office. Also, cute things/jewelry on sale. I'll definitely be coming back...with friends next time!

We had a girly party the day before my wedding, and the staff made us feel so comfortable. They set up the food we brought and served us while we enjoyed the most luxurious manis and pedis I've had in the city. The atmosphere and the service where top notch. Thank you for making our day so enjoyable. It's a week and a half later and my toes still look great even after hiking through a rainforest and swimming in the ocean. I have and will continue to recommend Polished Lounge to all my friends.

I just moved to SOMA, and found this gem. It was my girlfriend's birthday, and we wanted to surprise her. I spoke with Pauline at Polished Lounge and she fit us in between two other parties that day, and coordinated the whole thing for me - appetizers, cake, chilled champagne...the works. I didn't lift a finger. On the day of the party, the birthday girl was blown away by the surprise and the beautiful production. The ten of us were treated to multiple treatments and even a massage for the birthday girl. The Polished Lounge party is still the talk of the town. You guys rock...We'll be back

Just got my brazillian from Polished Lounge last week and to my surprise, I LOVE IT! I'm one of those low-pain tolerance women so I was a bit nervous when I got there. But the wax person Sophia was awesome. She prepped me before each pull and made it as painless as possible. I have gotten really good mani/pedis here before but now I am even more convinced the folks at Polished Lounge really know what they're doing.

The hostess was very friendly and the place was clean and polished as usual. The prices are also very reasonable. On the way out I bought some baby shower gifts and birthday gifts--they have really unique items. Love the jasmine candles and guava body lotion.

I feel so unencumbered with my brazilian and my boyfriend can't get enough. A must try for all the ladies out there!

Went there after I saw the review. The place is inconspicuos, however parking was pretty easy. Inside the spa, it's a very shabby chic, girly place with vintagey feeling. We had the mani-pedi package, which was pretty good. They use the enamel bowls to soak your feet and hands. The nail technician was friendly without being overly chatty. Overall, this place is B+. The service was good, but for $40 for average mani-pedi, there's plenty of competition out there. I'd say I'll come back once in a while, but it's worth to try just for the sake of the atmosphere.

Heard about this place from dailycandy and decided to try it out with a friend. It's a cozy little space, very warm and inviting. My friend and I both got basic manicures, which were such a steal at only $15. There are just nice little touches like pretty little plates to hold your rings/watch, a warm wrap around the shoulders (smelled deliciously like oatmeal cookies!) and a nice massage with warm lotion. The manicurists are friendly but don't force you to chit chat if you don't want. I also had an eyebrow wax there that was just average. The place is a bit out of the way and parking isn't great, but it's worth it for the great prices and also the fun gifts they have. Their jewelry is surprisingly inexpensive.

Heard about this place from dailycandy and decided to try it out with a friend. It's a cozy little space, very warm and inviting. My friend and I both got basic manicures, which were such a steal at only $15. There are just nice little touches like pretty little plates to hold your rings/watch, a warm wrap around the shoulders (smelled deliciously like oatmeal cookies!) and a nice massage with warm lotion. The manicurists are friendly but don't force you to chit chat if you don't want. I also had an eyebrow wax there that was just average. The place is a bit out of the way and parking isn't great, but it's worth it for the great prices and also the fun gifts they have. Their jewelry is surprisingly inexpensive.

Pros: inexpensive, charming atmosphere

Cons: not ideal location, difficult parking

I was a little hesitant about getting a manicure, but my friends told me about this great place that would take care of me...and they were so right. In fact, they made me feel so comfortable and relaxed that I went ahead and got a pedicure too (my very first one). Now, I can't get enough of this place and frequent it regularly. Who can't use a little pampering in their daily lives?

Finally a nail spa that pampers your senses while courteous and skilled technicians tend to your hands and feet. Polished Lounge is unlike any other nail salon you've ever seen. Bar none. When I first walked into this SoMa gem, I was blown away by the beautiful French country decor. At first glance it doesn't even look like a nail salon and you might mistaken it for your living room. The front of the shop is a revolving display of unique and pretty things that are hard to resist. I have hosted several parties here with girlfriends and we always feel like we're at someone's home. For a place this grand, you'd expect sky-high prices but it's comparable, if not better given the atmosphere, to many nail salons. A truly unforgettable experience.

This was a great experience. The people were friendly, the atmosphere was cute, clean, and relaxing, and it was reasonably priced. They also were able to accomodate two of us at once and we got to sit next to each other and get our treatments at the same time.

This is the most comfortable nail salon I've ever been to. At the Polished Lounge, you get seated in comfortable chairs and they start you off with a warm shoulder pack. The personal attention you get at this salon beats all other salons. The staff is friendly and does a very thorough job. I can't wait to plan an event here with my girlfriends.

The place is an elegenat little hide-way in SOMA. The perfect place to get special pampering before you swing into the nightlife of Bacar.

The Polished Lounge is a haven for men and women. At first I was hesitant to get a manicure/pedicure but now I am hooked! THe technicians at the salon are all very professional. I am rough with my hands and have a bad habit of biting my nails. The staff at Polished Lounge made me feel very comfortable and showed me how to care for my hands and feet. They expertly trimmed my cuticles and hangnails. They also use some great products that protect the nails (without making them shiny) that keeps me from chewing on them. My girlfriend loves my hands and feet now! I highly recommend this salon for all you guys out there. I even bought her this beautiful antique ring there for a birthday gift--she loves it.

The "Polished Lounge" lives up to its name - a warm and inviting salon that reminds me of a coastside B&B in Mendocino. I had my first mani/pedi here about 3 months ago, and it now has become a monthly treat to myself. Pauline and her staff go out of their way to make the experience comfortable and relaxing w/ many thoughtful perks such as warm neck/shoulder packs, soothing teas, and sweet treats. A quick way to de-stress and refresh . . .

A bargain spa that gets it. Overstuffed chairs and bowls (not germy spa chairs) in a roomy country comfort atmosphere. Tables for manicures (no straddling a spa bowl like at one spot). No overpriced services (like the place three blocks up). You can bring a group if you wish. Your treatment will be thorough as owner Pauline has gone through the same experiences her customers have and has developed this shop. It may be a little out of the way for some but if you are in the area this is the place to go.
