I don't usually write reviews, but I just had to share my experience because I was so utterly disappointed with my experience here :( I usually go to another nail salon in Vacaville (a place I've been going to since I moved out here a year ago) but I decided to try out this place one Sunday afternoon. Not situated in a very nice shopping plaza, but from where I am from, I've discovered many spas/salons in not so desirable places and have had amazing service. Essentially you can never judge a book by it's cover.

The only thing I can say - HORRIBLE job. Only the owner (a man) was working that Sunday (he says that since it's a slow day, it's only him that stays there). I work in the health care field now and must keep my nails clean and short. I asked for simple, basic french manicure... what a horrific and sloppy job. At first he insisted that I paint my nails completely instead of doing french -- his reason? That it won't stay and eventually chip within the second day. I have been getting my nails done for YEARS and know that a french is able to last AT LEAST a week if done properly. I declined his suggestion and said that I wanted a french. My goodness... it was the worst, most sloppiest french manicure I have ever had in my life. I was so disappointed. First off, he barely cut my cuticles, just pushed it around and making pretend nips. When he started to paint, the white nail polish he used was so thick and not fluid enough and he didn't bother to pour a little thinner on it to make it more fluid for a smoother coat. I now saw why he suggested coloring my nail one shade... the man could not do a french :( With my nails being short the white line should be thin - instead he made them thick and crooked. The lines were not even and didn't even fully extend to the other side of the nail. As we chatted I discovered that he has been doing nails since '86, and a few years after opened the nail shop. What I could not understand is how he can have that much experience but do such a poor job on my french. As he did my arm/hand massage - he also massaged my armpits... that was the weirdest and most uncomfortable part. No one massages a sweaty armpit (the shop had no AC and only had the fans going and front door open). Sadly, I'm not one to really speak up and complain, and so I faked a smile, decided long before that it would be my FIRST and LAST visit and forked over my $15 (technically $25 + tip -- he did my daughter's manicure - a solid color). At first I was going to pay by check card, but he says that their credit card machine is broken?! What business says this!? And so I had to walk over to the liqueur store to use their ATM, but it too, was broken! So on-top of this poor service and inconveniences, I had to drive around and find an ATM :( Once I got home I couldn't bare to have such atrocity on my nails any longer and so I removed it.

Now I can't speak for the rest of the nail technicians at this shop, but to save anybody else the misery - I suggest that you get your nails done with one of the females and AVOID the male owner if you can... especially if you want to do a french manicure. As for me, I will continue to go to my regular nail shop...

I go here and get my nails done by Angie. She has always done a great job. I get the gel nails du to the fact that I have four boys and a stay at home mom I do a lot of cooking and cleaning.They hold up great.
Angie is always acommidating, fast and I have never had to wait when I have a schedualed nail appointment..

PROS: Fast, accomidating and a good job
CONS: none
