    I go to the Spa on the metro level. I've seen Thuy, Valerie, and Tammy. They are very nice & do great manicures, pedicures, & waxing. Simone also gives the best massages. She's the sweetest, too! :)

    I really like Vanessa! She is very thorough, and even gets out ingrown nails! I also like the fact that I can shop at Pentagon City after a relaxing pedi... ;)

    Addicted to shellac manicures here! Lasts 2 weeks but you can push 3 if you get French tips. Great service 95% of time. Amy gives the best legs massage! Quick in and out nail stop.

    there are 2 locations in the mall -- one on the third floor (ph: 703-416-8881) and one on the second floor (ph: 703-413-3404). the third floor one is much larger.

    Tracy is a great shellac artist. Always quick, efficient and great results that last two weeks+. Won't go anywhere else!

    All I wanted was a fill in and she kept trying and trying to sell me the pink and white acrylic. Then she puts polish on and is trying to sell me the gel topcoat! So obnoxious!

    I've been going here for 4 years. Other salons are a disappointment compared to the peaceful clean atmosphere.

    Vicky is the best! She is the fifth seat over when first entering the nail salon.

    You can pay with a credit/debit card but have to tip in cash.

    1. Technicians are very RUDE and/or dismissive to the customers. 2. Pedicures are OVER-PRICED & RUSHED 3. Service add-ons so the bill may shock you 4. Inferior SNS/acrylic work here. 5. Poor hygiene.

    $11 to change polish. Plus I still tipped her $4. Next time I'll wait till I get back to NY to pay $5 for a polish change.

    I had the worst experience getting shellac off. What they don't tell you is that you must soak in acetone for 20 min to get it off! Woman in charge is just mean.
