My daughter and I are LOOOONG time customers of Michael's. Not only from when he was proprietor of USA Nails, but also before that when he worked in his parents nail spa in the Center of Winthrop. His wife Mai and daughter Beverly are wonderful additions to the family business! Michael and Mai have ALWAYS been extremely accommodating - and that's an understatement. They are already open extended hours above and beyond what most, if not all, other nail salons offer. However, in additional to that, Mai has gone out of her way to stay later than posted closing hours, as well as, earlier than posted opening hours. I would have to say if you had a bad experience - its more likely because of YOU and not Star Nails.

No business is IMMACULATE - not even hospitals, so let go of that dillusion. At the same time, they are far from filthy. They are more than reasonably clean considering the nature of the business. The do nails, they don't serve food.

I will concur that the language barrier can be frustrating; however, I've never had a problem with getting either Mai's, Michael's or Beverly's attention to clarify what I'm looking for and having them translate as needed. I will also concur that the fish tank could have used better care.

All-in-all, small sacrafices considering the volume of customers that pass through there and the nature and common 'frustrations' with the majority of nail salons.

Here's the good news ... if you don't like them - you have HUNDREDS to choose from in a small radius. So move on. They are probably better off without your business anyway. Leaves more appts free for the rest of us who love them!

I have been going to Star Nails since they first opened. Mia and Michael are extremely nice people. Mia makes sure to always have all the new and inviting colors and techniques in the salon. She is always learning new things and then she perfects them. I enjoy my hour every other week with them. They are very affordable and convenient. I need a flexible schedule because of my job and children and I love that I can get an appointment at 7:00pm any night or even a Sunday.
Great Place!

Looking for an excellent manicure and pedicure? Star Nails. A few weeks ago, I noticed a very feminine and playful enamel color on a coworker. I complimented it, and this is how I was introduce to Michael and Mai.

The salon was highly recommended so I called and made my first appointment. Star carries the latest colors, and Mail will help you pick a color, if you are the indecisive type.

I can't believe reviewer Lauren M said this place was "immaculately clean"! Because there is like an inch of dust - literally built up in this place. It has nice aesthetics with the big screen, bamboo, etc. - but it is dirty. The fish tank is so cloudy you can hardly see the fish! And,the besides the owner - no one there has enough knowledge of the English language to have a personality. Their mani/pedis are no better than others, personally, I go there because they are open on Sundays; most places are not. If it is not a Sunday and you prefer more personal service try Kim's Nail Design in Winthrop. They are a small, 2 person, operation, so you may need to wait if they are busy but they will get to know you.

I have been here twice and have been very unhappy both times. The 1st time I got a french mani and pedi. It looked like a 5 year old did it. I asked her to do it thinner but she didn't understand me. After 5 times of asking I gave up. The 2nd time I went, I wanted red & a Christmas tree design for both mani and pedi. I just wanted a green tree with maybe a yellow star but got some horrible white tree and the lady cut my toe. Then I was lost in the shuffle and never got my manicure. I guess it was just as well. I have never walked out of a nail place feeling so horrible, twice! I know its cheap, but you get what you pay for. I'd have been better off doing it myself.

The Winthrop buzz about Star Nails was great even before I went for a manicure and pedicure, and that was before I even knew about the massaging chairs, big screen TV, and foot whirlpools. I've had my nails done there several times now and each and every time, the manicure and/or pedicure has lasted WEEKS!!! I prefer the French manicures, which are not always easy to pull off when one has spoon-like nails, but somehow Star Nails has done it!

PROS: Did I mention the massaging chairs?
CONS:

If you are looking for a beautiful hands and feet, as well as a truley relaxing experience, you have to go to Star Nails in Winthrop. Star Nails is a family-run business that cares about their clients and gets to know each client on a first name basis. Prices are the same as most nail salons, but at Star Nails you get much more. Enjoy a Spa Pedicure in a super-relaxing massage chair. They also have a big screen tv so you can enjoy the latest movies while getting your nails done. The shop is immaculatly clean, and also offers waxing in a private back room. Though always busy, appointments are not neccesary.

PROS: Big screen tv, massaging pedicure chairs, fish tank w/funny looking fish
CONS:
