I found this place on citysearch and it had a good review and I realized it was on the street across from my building. So I went there today for a mani and pedi and it was just like your average good manicure and pedicure, with the same colors you could get anywhere else. The only thing that made it different was that there were private and semi-private rooms. But honestly I prefer being in a salon where everyone is in the same place because this just felt weird to me. So after I sit in the waiting room for my nails to dry (no quick-drying machines like they have at most places) I go to pay. She tells me 83.60. I think I must have heard wrong and ask her to repeat it. She says it again. I would like to point out that their prices are not listed anywhere in the entire place. And I did not choose some special pedicure but it was $50 and on the receipt it says "911 Pedicure", maybe because I went without and appointment. I am extremely pissed off that I wasted that much money when I could have gotten the exact same thing for $20 at any other place. If you are a poor college student like me, or anyone who doesn't feel like paying close to $100 (including tip) for a stupid manicure and pedicure, then never EVER go to this place.

Pros: across the street from where i live

Cons: ridiculously expensive

I went to Rescue Beauty as a walk-in after a boring day of jury duty as it was within walking distance of the courts. Their decor is wonderful, and it smelled very nice, a nice change from the usual nail polish and remover smell of most nail salons. They offer private and semi-private mini rooms for mani pedis and waxing, as well as a communal glass table for manis. Their own products smell wonderful, specially the rosemary pamplemousse lotion. For $22, I got an excellent manicure that included a wonderful arm massage, and got to pick colors from over 5 different brands of polish, including Rescue's own line, MAC, Delux Beauty, Essie, and others. Their mani/pedi implements were sterilized and individually sealed. They use the same brand of nail filers that Bliss uses, called Diamancel. The beautiful decor is topped off with a virtual cornucopia of beauty and fashion items for sale, including products from Molton Brown, Alora Ambiance, Burt's Bees, Ole Henriksen, Serge Lutens Fragrances, Delux Beauty cosmetics, jewelry by Roxanne Assoulin for Lee Angel, Suede fiip flops from Rescue's own brand, and even Cosabella thongs in many colors. I must say that all the hype Rescue gets from all the beauty mags is definitely deserved. For a little over twenty bucks, you get an expertly done manicure using deliciously scented products in a luxurious environment, with no rush, no crowds, and no worries about cleanliness and germs. The only negative point lies in its out of the way location.
