I had intended on getting a pedicure at the Sharp Nail & Hair Salon- that is, until they sat me down at one of their stations. I was shocked to see how dirty it was and pointed it out to the woman who was going to work on me. She kept insisting I put my feet in that filthy basin but I refused. I asked to be taken to another station, but I don't think they understood as they kept motioning me to put my feet in. I put my shoes back on and walked out.

This isn't the friendliest place around, unless they know you, but they do a good pedicure, complete with a mini leg/foot massage. Don't let them pull a switch, though, as the owner will pull a switch on you -- there'll be three people doing the pedicure, and then the owner will badger you about tipping all three of them when you pay!!! I don't know how to compare the cleanliness of this salon with others, but I can say, with some suspicion, that I have NEVER seen them disinfect the foot basins, or pull their tools out of an autoclave in the many, many years I've been going. I bring my own disinfectant and insist that they clean the basins. If you have worries about this, don't go here!!! There does seem to be significant staff turnover, except for Natalie, who's been there for years, and is the only person I can recommend. Tina, the owner, comes off as a shrewd and somewhat conniving business woman, but you learn to love her.

Pros: No rush, good value pedicures, pretty friendly staff - though English is rarely spoken.

Cons: Questionable sanitary practices.
