Quick Picks: Town Nails and Spa gives great manicure despite long wait

Meredith Haggerty, In-Depth Editor

As the manicurist swept my nails with bright pink polish and wiped away the extra polish that was left on my fingers, I could not help but think of how great of a job Town Nails & Spa does at painting nails.

The place itself is very clean and organized. I walked in, and I was blown away by how clean it was. There was not one speck of dust on the floor or on the counters. The employees made sure to clean out every pedicure chair after someone sat there, and all of the utensils they used to fix my cuticles and nail beds were immediately put in a sanitation cleansing area to be properly cleaned.

The cleanliness was not the only great thing about this nail salon. There is a vast amount of polish colors to choose from. I went with an OPI bright pink/coral color and I loved it. It was exactly what I was looking for.

The manicurist was polite, asking me how I was and making small talk. He painted my nails nicely.

The prices are very low, $12 for a manicure and $18 for a pedicure. Town Nails & Spa goes one step further and includes facials, waxing and threading, and massages all at reasonable prices as well.

There were only two down sides to my trip to Town Nails & Spa. The first was that it was busy, which was good for them but bad for me. I sat and waited for at least 25 minutes before I was seated, then 10 minutes passed before my manicurist sat down and started my manicure.

Also, my nails chipped slightly after having them done for a couple of days. About two days after I got my nails done, some of my nails were already chipping. In the past I got the shellac, and it kept my nails from chipping for a much longer time. Shellac manicures are $17 instead of $12, but for this nail salon, the shellac makes all of the difference on how long your nails will keep from chipping.

They do not have appointments for manicures and pedicures, but for facials and waxing you can make an appointment.

Other than the wait, Town Nails & Spa is an exceptional salon that has well trained employees and a nearly spotless salon to prove it. I would recommend this salon to anyone who wants to get a manicure or pedicure.
