I have never had a complaint at Yuya nails. Even when I can not make an appointment they will always accomodate. Unlike the 1st reviewer, I can tell you (because I work in the dental industry) that they do sterilize their instruments and I have walked in before they first open and they clean the entire salon down. There are some technicians who are a little heavy handed but if you tell them you need a lighter massage, they will accomodate.
There are a great selection of colors. The prices are no different than nail salons in the area of the 30's or 50's. The staff is very nice
and friendly. It does not take much to be nice to the staff.
P.S.-My mother suffers from cramps of her legs and spasms and has had that happen more than once in the salon, and they have
been the most understanding and empathetic about it.

At reception, I requested a simple polish change. I was told $12.50. O.K. Then at the pedicure station, the beautician asked me *something*, but her English was so poor that after at least 3 attempts at clarification, I gave up and just nodded. It turns out that she was asking if I wanted a *pedicure.* I thought that the woman at reception would have told my beautician what it was I wanted. I was wrong. And my mistake cost me an extra $15!!! Not only did I pay for something I never wanted, but what I got was mediocre for the price. Dripping lotion on my legs and pounding them with fists does not a massage make. I did not see if the tools being used on my feet had been sterilized: she had taken them from her bin. When were they last sanitized? *Shudders* When I got my bill, I was of course sticker-shocked. I asked reception what had happened? The old bait-n-switch, it seems. Apparently, I had agreed to the pedicure during the lost in translation. I told the receptionist that it was HER responsibility to tell the beautician what I had wanted, not mine. She replied that she was "too busy." Uh-huh.

The technique was sloppy, and I am dissatisfied with her work. No smudges, but not an evenly painted surface, either.

This place was more like a joyless assembly line than a salon.

This "salon" was more like a joyless assembly line.
When I went to the reception desk, I requested *just* a polish change. After a brief wait, I was escorted to the pedicure station. The beautician asked me *something* but I couldn't understand her (I found out later that she was asking me if I wanted a pedicure). I desperately nodded because her English was so bad, I had no idea what she was saying. I have had many pedicures before, and this was the *worst*. Her technique was sloppy, and I don't count dripping lotion on my legs and then pounding them with her knuckles as the "massage" portion of the treatment. Plus, I did not see if the pedicure tools had been sanitized - they were laying in a bin! Anyway, when I got the bill, it was for $26.50. I was told upon my entrance that a simple polish change was $12.50. I asked at the desk what was going on and was told that when the beautician asked me, "pedicure," I agreed. And I replied that I didn't even understand what she was saying! I added that it was her responsibility as the employer to tell the beautician what I, the customer, had wanted! She told me that the salon was "too busy" and that *I *should have told the beautician, "just polish." In other words, it was my fault! Well, with that I said that I won't be returning. I left this shifty place with a mediocre nail job, and overcharged $15.

Pros: None.

Cons: Ridiculous prices for mediocre results.
