I tried Charming Nails today. The French Manicure I got was ok, but this was a no frills establishment.

The hand massage during the manicure was overly rough, there was no massage while I was drying ( which was fine, because I would have been concerned that she'd hurt me).

I won't be going back- just not the sort of thing I'm used to.

I have tried all the nail salons on Lancaster Ave in Ardmore. I felt like just a number in most of them, and they all use girls that obviously do not know anything about the business. Charming Nails was the last for me to try and I happened to get lucky...If you do go to Charming Nails, ask for "Mia" I used someone else once when she was not there and they did a terrible job. Mia is really good, and massages you while your nails dry. $12 Manicure

I had a horrible experience here. I went the day before my wedding for a French manicure; the woman who did my nails was barely competent. When she tried to square off the ends of my fingernails, not only did she cut them crooked, but she didn't file them well, so the ends were still ragged when she put the polish on. They were cracked and peeling by the end of the day. She also did a terrible job painting the white tips--it looked like a kindergartner did them with white-out--and the rest of the nails were streaky & full of air bubbles. The only two things she said to me during the manicure (other than telling me to switch hands) were, "You pay now" and "Oh, I didn't see you were bleeding." She cut a large chunk out of one of my cuticles; it was red and swollen for days, and I had a large scab for over a week. (Of course, the finger she mutilated was my left ring finger. Just perfect for wedding photos!)

Afterward, when she massaged my shoulders, she pinched so hard I still had red marks & broken blood vessels around my neck the next day. I told her she was hurting me, but it didn't make a difference.

Best of all, she didn't put me under the drying lamps long enough, so I smudged one of the nails trying to get my keys out of my purse. I went straight to the drugstore to buy my own French manicure kit, then went home to touch up & re-file my nails.

Stay away. Stay far away.

I love Charming nails! Everyone is very friendly, and the service is great. My nails looks amazing and gotta love the massage as you wait for your nails to dry!

I will not recommend Charming nails to anyone today! Having gone there for several months, I have seen a steady deterioration in their services. Just recently I got the worst manicure of my life! The person did not even know how to file nails or do the cuticles. I had to constantly tell her what to do. I have also had a few bad experiences with my pedicures. As much as I like the owner, I find it hard today to recommend it to anyone.

Charming nails gives great service for a very reasonable price. All the people that work there act very professional and are polite and accommodating. I have recommended it to many of my friends, and we've all had excellent results.

Delicious service! Professional, very clean polish application. I arrived late, and they efficiently accommodated my timing and desire for high quality. AND, as my nails dried, I received a therapeutic shoulder and head massage---all part of the service! I will be back!

there is an older lady who works here and she gave me a mani/pedi. The mani lasted an entire week. Through all of that, not even a chip! I was truly amazed.

a younger woman gave me a mani the next time I went and it chipped by dinner time. So now I'm lukewarm. Don't forget to make a reservation - they are always super busy.

My experience at charming nails was great! I loved their service and the staff members. They also met my expectations every time I went starting from my pedi, mani, and waxing as well. You can also request for a special technician that fits your needs if you wish to, which is what I do. Overall I have had the best experience with charming nails and would highly recommend this salon.

I love going there for pedis and manis, they make you feel very comfortable, and besides one incident I have yet to have a negative NAIL experience. When it comes to waxing, I would not recommend it. I had never gotten a wax for anything up until recently, and they created hair in places it hadn't existed before, so I went to someone else to have it fixed. But an excellent nail salon.

I've been here twice to get my eyebrows waxed. The first time, they did an ok job; not great.
I went back a few months later because I didn't know of anyplace else to go in the same price range (I'm not originally from the area).
This time was a disaster. Not only were my eyebrows uneven, but the girl who did them DRIPPED WAX IN MY HAIR, so that when she was done, the strips of paper she used to do the waxing were stuck to my hair! My hair is now all greasy from the oil she used to get the wax out, and I had to go to another salon to get my eyebrows fixed.

A $12 manicure that comes with the occasional free perks like a back massage and random gifts is spectacular in my opinion. Perfect for a day out with the girls, and you get more bang for your buck, and it being a block away from shopping doesnt hurt either. The pedicures are great too, its just something you have to experience. Oh and its 4 west, not 24.

PROS: clean, good service, location
CONS: sometimes crowded

a decent place for your basic manicure. really good for pedicures. DO NOT waste your money on getting acrylic nails there - the girl who put mine on had no clue what she was doing. i had to go back 3 days later since 2 broke off - however, they did give me a free manicure and my money for the acrylic nails was given back to me (as a gift certificate) - so I still had to spend it there.

At Charming Nails you can get a manicure and pedicure for $37. They will exfoliation, give you warm towels and even rub your feet with lemon slices. You will also be offered of a chilled Asian yogurt drink - its delicious! Best of all, you can get a kit where you can bring and store your own nail tools.
