I have to say something after reading the bad review from Ann. I have been going to Mimi nails for the last three years, and I never have a fungus. They always keep the shop clean, and sanitize their tools. By the way, I believe that they open at 10:00 am on Friday. I always please with services at Mimi nails.

Visited Mimi Nails in the beginning of August for a mani & pedi for my sister-in-law's wedding. My sister-in-law made an appointment 2 months in advance for her bridal party (there were 4 of us) at 9am on a Friday. She also called a week prior to the appointment to confirm. Both times she spoke with the receptionist, Rebecca. When we got there the "cleaning service" was there mopping the floors and only one stylist was there. The stylist did not seem to understand what we were telling her; that the appt was made & confirmed and we expected to be seen on time. The stylist got on the phone & called in the owner & the other stylists. She did run the tubs for our pedi's. The owner arrived & gave us the excuse that the appt was made but the receptionist used the wrong book. He did offer to give us a 10% discount, but when the stylists rung us up, they argued with us about the discount.

On a personal note, this was my first time getting a mani/pedi. I have heard horror stories about unsanitary conditions at nail salons. And I have not heard very good things about Mimi's. However, I gave them a chance to prove everything I have heard wrong, but they failed. I now have a fungus on one of my toes. Not happy about that! Also, the polish chipped the following day! When I got home after the pedi, my feet felt like sandpaper. They did not do a good job scrubbing my feet. My boyfriend (who actually ran a Nail salon in Jamaica) scrubbed my feet to perfection. So, between the whole experience with the appointment mishap & the fungus, I absolutely do not recommend Mimi's.

The only positive thing I can say is in regards to their decor.

I tried serveral salons in the Gaithersburg to have my eyelash extension done. Finally, I found the place that I like the best, and I don't think anyone does eyelash extension and eyebrows better than Judy. It has been three weeks, and my eyelash still look good. I strongly recommend this place.

I have been going to Mimi Nails more than 3 years. Specially after they moved to the bigger space within the shopping center, the shop look so beautiful and colorful. All of the girls are always friendly and know what I want. Great Services, Great Price!!!!!

I was immediately impressed by the look of the salon: no buzzing flourescent lights, open layout, no nasty fume smells. We had made appointments about an hour before and they were ready for us. The pedicure chairs were great: they swivelled, raised, and lowered so you didn't have to awkwardly straddle the tub getting in and out.

The staff were all incredibly nice and cheerful, and spoke great English. I wish I had asked the name of my technician because she did the most thorough job on my hands and feet.... it was probably one of the best pedicures I've ever had. It took an hour and a half, and this was just for a normal mani/pedi-- no spa treatment.

I was looking for a Nails salon in the area. I was lucky to find this nice and clean salon. The Nails techs are very nice and friendly. I received the best pedicure service ever. Also, they have the best price, but excellent services. Also, they have a wonderful nails arts collection, and I always please with the designs on my big toes. I love it!!!!

I have to say most of what people say here has some truth in them. I went last night to get a pedicure, i sat on the pedicure chair and waited for about 30 minutes till they can get to me, not to mention the initial long wait when I got there. The woman who did my nails not even once smiled or try to conversate. I also had to ask her multiple times to keep scrubbing the rough spots on my feet that she had missed, she rolled her eyes seem like she wasnt too happy about it. I also do not like the fact that they dont rub your feet as much as the other places (the whole reason why I get pedicures). also I couldnt help but to hear the woman next to me say how she has been there since 6:30pm (it was around 8:30) and how they keep charging her for more on her full set acrylic and pedicure. she also said how they were offering her a foot rub for extra money. the paint job was really bad, i dont think she put on a top coat, my nails look like they are two weeks ago. when the woman was done, she put my flip flops on for me, I asked her if she can put a separator between my toes, and she said my toes are too far apart and I dont need it...needless to say I wont be coming back to this place..the ambience was nice but the service was bad..

I have had several pedicures at Mimi nails. About half of the time they are unsatisfactory. Not much attetion is paid to removing dead skin. They usually do a nice job painting the nails, but the rest is rushed and sloppy. I have started requesting that the caluses are given more attention. They are in competiton with the barber shop next door and i have seen them actually go outside to coax customers to their store. They complain among themselves in a tone that is unprofessional, while ignoring the customer. So if all you care about is the paint on your nails, and not the enjoyable experince that a pedicure is supposed to be, then it's an okay deal.

I haven't gotten my nails done here, but since 2006, I've been coming to Mimi Nails every two months to have my eyebrows waxed and shaped. There are several lovely ladies who are qualified to do eyebrows, and they're all incredibly skilled. I've gone to high quality salons and paid three times as much for brows that were less shaped. For seven dollars, I got exactly what I wanted, and the stylists really know what they're doing. So if you need waxing this is a great, affordable place to go.

I was searching online for Mimi Nails' phone # when I came across a bad review. I had to respond!! I've received excellent service at Mimi Nails since re-locating here 5 yrs ago. I've been getting my nails done (acrylic & sometimes gel) every 2 wks for the last 25 years at nail salons in New York City & Philly. My manicurist at Mimi Nails is terrific! And the rest of the staff are equally competent.

I got my nails done at Mimi Nails Friday and the very next day I broke one picking up an EMPTY Tupperware container in my kitchen then broke two more at a baby shower later that day. Getting them on was so painful, I didn't want to go back and get them fixed. The price for a full set of gel was only 25 dollars, I guess I got what I paid for.
