This is a small nail salon tucked into the Riviera Village. Michelle is very knowledgeable and has been in the business for forever. They do gel nails in many different shades.

I have no idea what happened with the last reviewer, but Michelle is great. I drive from the San Fernando Valley to make my regular visits to her! I eagerly sought gel nails after horrible results with acrylics, and poorly experienced manicurists that have no idea about how to use an electric drill. Michelle walked me through everything, and that was about 3 years ago. I stopped going for a year, due to financial constraints, but when I returned - she was warm, welcoming and professional. Not only does she do gels, she KNOWS gels. Not many manicurists in So. Cal can say so. I see her regularly, and trust me - it is worth every dime. Her Shop and her workstation is immaculate, and now she offers waxing services. If you are in the area, check out michelle. You won't be sorry.....

This month My nails look FABULOUS.

Pros: Ambiance, The neighborhood is great....

Cons: none

I understand what the first poster said. First of all - Michelle specializes in BioSculpture gel nails - Only like 2 people in California do..........So she in not into acrylics.
I drove for an hour to see her.........With gas prices and 50.00 bucks later even a year ago.... it was not worth it - she will tell you want she wants to do for you so whatever you want... that is out the window. I wanted tips on my nails along with biosculpture... She REFUSED! So I had the same stubby nails I went there with..... 2 hours later.

I thought about returning to her for a special occasion - but It would tke 4 weeks for her to "grow my nails out". I think I will just pay 80 bucks and drive to Pasadena to get what I want.

Pros: Great at Gel nails...

Cons: Too Far and TOO pricey - She also gossips about clients

In fact, you could not pay me to go back! I thought from the nice location and the high prices that I was going to leave with beautiful nails and boy was I wrong!!!!! It was my first visit and I asked Michelle to fill my pink and white acrylic nails. She immediately told me she was double-booked somehow (she makes her own appointments - go figure) and assured me everything would work out. What normally would have taken her an hour, she squeezed into half that time. She obviously knew filling my acrylics would take longer than she had so she talked me into gels. Did she file off my acrylics first? NO! She painted the gels right over my acrylics. They were incredibly thick and ugly and every single nail had gel peeling off it by the end of the day. Then she charged me $45!!!! Not to embarrass her in front of her client, I left my check with a note saying I was unhappy and that I wouldn't be back. She left a message saying she guaranteed her work and to call her back with my concerns which seemed nice but there was no way I would go back after such horrible service. I left her a message saying I would not be back. Knowing how very dissatisfied I was, she still cashed my check, which was the deal breaker in writing this review! I wish I hadn't written the check out ahead of time with an additional $10 tip which was definately not deserved!
