Portland >Vogue Nails
I'm usually too cheap to get mani pedis, but when I break down for some reason generally involving extreme laziness, I head to this super affordable, neat as a pin salon right on Hawthorne. They have all the best polish colors, all the latest magazines, and sometimes they give you a foot rub with your pedi (for an extra $5, this is guaranteed).
I had a terrible experience at the place down the street, top 10 nails, but I had gone here once before for just a fill, and it actually lasted quite a long time so I decided to come back and get a new full set of solar nails. The first time I went there it was pretty busy, but that was on the weekend. I went on Monday in this instance and it wasn't busy at all; I was seen right away.
The nail technician was nice and her work was very precise and she was very careful. She made sure to make the nail tips exactly to the width of my natural nail, which I greatly appreciate because top 10 nails did not do that and I would have to file down the side of my natural nail to match the acrylic as it grew.
Overall I'm very pleased with my experience and I love the set of solars they gave me. The only cons were that it took about 2 hours and they were a little more on the pricey end, but after being completely cheated by top 10 nails, it was totally worth the price.
A great little pedicure place. . .. I've used this little place for the past 2 years or so. I consistently get a great pedicure. The staff are very friendly and make pleasant conversation. They're more than willing to change your nail color if you're not initially pleased and take care to keep your nails pristine until you're out the door. They thankfully have a cash machine right on site- very handy- and easily make change for the twenties it doles out. Generally little to no wait. A nice little spot to drop in and get pampered.
Always do a great job, excellent value.
I've been going to Vogue Nails for the past 2 years and have recommended them to many friends. I always get service with a smile, and they're always so thorough. Best French pedicure I've ever had. The foot mask is wonderful!
Make sure to take cash or your checkbook with you -- they don't accept credit cards (but there is a cash machine in the salon).
poor service, go elsewhere. I had a pretty disappointing pedicure at Vogue. The woman was barely paying attention to her work, talking loudly with her co-workers the whole time, and at one point brushed her arm across my toenail after it had been polished, messing it up - she didn't even notice until I pointed it out.
