I've been here a few times because they're cheap for the SB area. Unfortunately I had a horrendous experience there last week. A man named T*** ( I have avoided using his name so Citysearch will not take my review down, I want people to

$20 for a pedicure and $10 for a manicure. Look at the economy right now and I think this is the best store to come to have my nails done.
Service is nice and everyone is so friendly.
5 stars for it.

Pros: Reasonable price

Being new to Goleta, I read the reviews online and figured that Artistic Nails and Spa would be a great place. I made an appointment for a complete set and a pedicure. Apparently they did not understand my request for simultaneous services. I got there at 1:00PM and did not leave until 2:40PM. They were not at all busy, just disorganized. The pedicure hurt more than any I had ever had in my life, and cost $28, more than I have ever paid in my life. When I finally was done with that service I was ushered over to another chair for my full set. Apparently, it was the first time this guy had ever done nails. The result was stubby, uneven, completely squared with sharp corners, the ugliest set of nails I had ever had. He nicked me once causing me to bleed , and drilled so much around my cuticles that 3 of my nails are bruised. To top things off, his fingernails were so filthy, I could hardly stand to look at them. In fact the whole shop could have used a case of Lysol and some serious elbow grease. The workers were neither charming or funny. In fact they completely disengaged from all of the customers while chattering away and laughing in their native tongue. I will NEVER enter that shop again. What a waste of $70!

I just wasted $50.00 on a manicure and pedicure at Artistic Nails. My nails look like they were done by an eight year old. I could have just painted my own nails for free and they would have looked ten times better.

My feet are still loaded with winter callouses. They definitely do not look like they were just "pampered" with a pedicure. During my pedicure, I was asked if I wanted sea salts in my foot soak. Apparently this is an extra $5.00 charge, of which, of course, I was not informed. The ironic part is that I was charged for scrubbing salts, yet my feet are still covered in dead skin. I even had to ask twice for a second coat of nail polish.

When I complained to the person doing my nails, he suddenly could no longer understand English. None of the employees were willing to reimburse my money for their shit-work. On top of all this, I was late to work since it took two hours for a mani-pedi, which should only take 1 hour.

I've been in this shops from the time they opend. I always have my nails very good done.The way I like here is the quick service.Because of being a manager at o food store, I always don't have not much time for nails.The manicurists are professional so I do not have to make any appointment to have my nails done within 30'.But one time, I saw some girls who got nails done some days before coming back to ask the manager for giving their money back 'cause they didn't like the service!!!! It's not fair.Evryone works n earn money for living! Think abt that,pls!
In addition, it's worthyt tobe patient to wait for the service if you don't have any appoitment because they're all hard workers n love working to get your money. And if you know who the manager or the owner is why you have to wait for her instead of asking for another one do your nails. Because of the person who is in charge of the shop, she has to answer any phone call
I summary, I'd like everyone who is interest in the value of labour should preciate the things that you get from Artistic Nails and Spa's services

The owner of this place is horrible! she is talked too much, loud, n on the fone all the times. Also she is doing horrible job. She did a full set in 15 mins other people are very nice, they did very good jobs! just except the owner...if you go there, do not let the owner do for you.

This is the WORST, and i mean WORST nail salon I have EVER, EVER been to. The service is absolutely TERRIBLE and the manual service is wayyyyy below poor. I had my full set put on by the OWNER of the chain. This is on a saturday. TWO of my nails popped of by picking up a paper that fell on the floor. I had to wait a good twenty minutes for her to even acknowlge me, and then another twenty for to even tell me people that SHE was helping me. Once she started working she got up again and started fooling around the computer and walked away to the back room. The nails at least looked great but she did a VERY poor job. I'll never, EVER return to any artistic nail salon and I hope people know how awful they are.

I was looking for an affordable salon where I could get my legs waxed somewhere close to UCSB and Artistic Nails and Spa in Goleta fit these criteria. When I spoke with them on the phone, they said that a full leg wax would cost me $40. Upon arriving I was hurriedly taken to small waxing room and told to get on the waxing bed. When I asked about the prices again, the lady replied that a half leg was costs $25 dollars and therefore a full leg wax would cost about twice as much, she said $45, I give you a $5 discount. Of course, hearing the price suddenly increase by $5 was not a pleasant surprise, but since I was desperate for a wax, I silently accepted. Midway through the waxing, two things happened. First, the wax ran out, so I had to wait an additional 15 minutes for the next batch of wax to heat up, lying there in a compromising position. Second, the lady got a personal phone call and talked on her phone throughout the wax. When she told me that she was done I noticed that she left nearly a quarter of my leg unwaxed, she just forgot to do it. Then when I explained that I also wanted her to wax the top of my foot and the toes, she told me that she would charge me an EXTRA $5 for each foot, since the feet were not part of my legs. Eventually with the tip and everything, this wax cost me $60; that is $20 more than I expected. I FELT RIPPED OFF and PROVIDED WITH A SHODDY SERVICE. And for this reason, I DONT RECOMMEND ANYONE GOING THERE unless you want to feel this way.

I have the worst nail beds on the face of the planet and when I left my fav. place in OC I thought I would never have nails stay on again. I visited over 10 salons in SB and finnaly found a good priced, great looking nail spot! I would reccomend them to anyone!

I love Artistic Nails in the Calle Real shopping center. The staff is always so funny and charming to work with. The manicures & pedicures are the best I have ever received and they last for weeks. Prices can't be beat and they are open really long hours. Walk-ins are always welcome & I have never had to wait!

I went here to try it out. I really wanted to try acrylic nails, but didn't want to do them all, so I went in and asked the ladies working here if I could just try out two (on my thumbs). I wanted to make sure I could handle how they felt. (I do alot of typing and also wanted to make sure I would still be able to type.) The ladies here seemed a little confused at first by my unusual request, but they complied with my wishes and I received good treatment. I was satisfied with the results.

The place is very busy and full of young women getting manicures and pedicures.

Located in the Calle Real Shopping Center near Longs Drugs on Calle Real (near the Fairview Road Exit).

PROS: Good acrylic nails, good services
CONS: need an appointment, busy place
