''2007-01-20 16:48:47'' [[nbsp]] They did a decent job on my fingernails, but my toenails left much to be desired. They slop on the polish, one coat after another, with no drying time in between, so it takes FOREVER to dry that thick layer of wet paint. I sat in the dryer for 20 minutes, babied my toes on the way home, and they still messed up. Also, gross--not clean at all. I watched her clean the bath after I was done, and all she did was rinse the tub with water and scrub it a little with a tiny brush. I would want at least some bleach or ajax between customers. Gross. I wondered if their instruments or pumice they used were cleaned in the same fashion. Yuck. Not sanitary at all. It may be a "good deal", but you get what you pay for. --["LeslieCooper"]

''2007-01-31 12:27:16'' [[nbsp]] I used to get my nails done here because it was pretty much the cheapest place in town and they did a good job. Then I went in a couple months ago and it was horrible; they cut my cuticles so close that I bled and had scabs for a week and a half. I told her it hurt but she didn't respond and kept going. I understand that when you're cutting cuticles, bleeding can happen, but it seemed excessive. Also, as others have noted, they don't seem to take cleanliness as seriously as other places. I won't be going back. --["ElleWeber"]

''2007-04-01 22:13:19'' [[nbsp]] When me and my roomate went we actually bonded over the pain of the manicure. The nail lady kept knicking our cuticles with the drill thing they use so the nails will stick. It was horrible! we definately haven't gone back. --["KirstenHaney"]

''2007-07-23 11:01:50'' [[nbsp]] not sanitary AT ALL. while was getting a pedicure, the woman was using the SAME instruments for the girl getting a pedicure next to me. obviously not even rinsing them in between. GROSS. sorry for those of you who don't know- you can get fungus infections of the nails that way. never will go back. --["Users/lk"]
''2007-11-17 23:09:58'' [[nbsp]] I took these comments into consideration, and it is an understatement to say I was VERY unhappy with this place. Don't bother making an appointment, because they got to me on time, but there were only 3 girls working, and one walk in said she was in a rush, and I was put aside and 2 of the 3 people working there got going on her. They had started on my nails, so I couldn't just walk out, and I ended up waiting for an HOUR. The lady next to me kept telling the girl she was hurting her, and she replied "oh it just tickles" and kept hurting her! On top of that, I realized they were using the same tools on BOTH of us. ew. and the manager tripped and broke glass and just left it there! and they expected me to walk around barefoot??? I think not. and a random family member was sleeping on their couch and was SNORING like crazy. Let me assure you, I will never be going there again, and I am really not a hater or anything, but I honestly think this place could be shut down by the Health Board- it was just that bad. Just go somewhere else. --["Users/heythere"]
''2007-12-03 22:16:31'' [[nbsp]] The last time I went there was while ago (not going back), but I totally agree with the last two comments made. They do not sanitize their tools, and when they are busy they do not sanitize the foot basin between customers! I also saw another worker simply rinse off used tools with water and then put them back on a tray for future use. This is not how it is done. It is supposed to be sanitized in a proper way to kill off fungus and bacteria. And when you get your nails infected with fungus....it's gross and it never goes away unless you take this Rx from your doctor that can damage your liver. Some people simply cannot take it, so have to live with the fungus forever. Yuck. I know that this place is cheap, but please do not take a chance here. --["Users/RDN"]

''2008-04-24 16:32:09'' [[nbsp]] I went here after reading some of the reviews below because I needed a last minute, quick pedicure. It really is a great deal for what they charge. The pedicure is kind of "no frills" - I don't get them often & so I really appreciate the foot massage some places give - but they were detailed & attentive & did a good job. --["Users/Dora5"] ''2008-06-24 16:32:09'' [[nbsp]] I went here after reading some of the reviews below because I needed a last minute, quick pedicure.

''2008-05-01 11:34:30'' [[nbsp]] They are terrible, I wet there two times in a row and the lady didn't understand what I wanted, I got my nails done wrong both times. Some may think it's not a big deal but it's like making a 50$ purchase and it is broken and you cant return it. Seriously...if you can't speak english move back to where you came from. --["Users/Kry"]
''2008-06-09 18:29:30'' [[nbsp]] Okay, after reading the comments above, if you notice that a salon doesn't sanitize their tools...DON'T GO THERE!!! I know it's cheap but it's not worth getting fungus because you're going to have to go to the doctor and pay for your medications in the long run. How much will it save you then? What disgusted me the most is that they don't sanitize their chairs...which is a big NO NO because the thing that makes the water feel like a jacuzzi on your feet are propellers in the chair. The covers on the propellers have to be screwed off and cleaned and scrubbed because people's dead skin and nasty fungus gets in there so you HAVE to manually open it and clean it or else it's just a collection of people's nasty feet in that propeller which will be released into the water when the next customer comes. How do I know this? I work at a nail salon...I'm Vietnamese..so you guys know what's up. haha If the state board comes, they can be charged about $1000 per chair for not getting it sanitized. So please be careful ladies and gents when you go and get your feet/hands done. --["Users/vietgirlwithappetite"]

2006-04-26 11:52:16   My sister and I are cheap, and found Diana's and Davis nails to have the best mani/pedi deals. The ladies at Diana's were friendly, and we were satisfied with our results. Some girls came in while we were getting our treatments, and they needed "a color change" on their nails. The manicurists said it would be a few minutes (cause they only had two on staff) and the girls STORMED out about 2 minutes later. So, short staffed may be possible, but the quality is just fine. —JenniferLaFever

2006-12-31 10:58:31   This place is an awesome find. I know that it may be hard for some to over look the appearance of the salon, but believe me, they do the best mani/pedis in Davis- especially for the prices they charge. There are only two ladies, but they are both incredibly nice. They don't speak much english, but they get the job done. Overall, this place may look a little run down, but their work is the best in Davis. —AmyTran

2007-01-26 14:21:36   this is my favorite spot to get my pedicures. Just that my feet super hurt after they are done, but i think they are supposed to hurt or they didnt do a good job. I wonder about the instruments they use since someone pointed out to me that they never see them open a new bag of anything. I love the staff though because they know me and are very friendly now. They do an excellent job with pedicures. I dont like the manicures though, the nail polish chips just like that...guess its to make u come back and pay for them again. love this place though over other ones in davis. —KimberlyMiller

2007-01-31 10:25:08   This is the only place I'll come for a pedicure. Other places are either too rough or too superficial (2K Nails in South Davis). They do an awesome foot massage (most other places are too short and superficial). And their nail design is awesome. Well, it actually depends on who you have, but the last time I went, one of the pedicurists did a beautiful design job, much more intricate than I've ever had. They don't speak much english, but they're really nice and do an awesome job. —AndreaPasiliao

2007-02-13 19:11:40   I loved going to Diana's, as my first experience here I must say, not only were the prices very reasonable, the ladies know what they are doing and were very willing to make sure they did everything I wanted. My nails look great and the mani/pedi treatment was so relaxing, they took their time to give a massage and do a good job!!! I definitely reccommend Diana's nails. —JessicaSouza

2007-07-19 21:28:35   I like the remoldel of the shop it is nice it has 4 spas now new tiles and door it looks better now and they do good job i only want the owner to do my nails because shes more experienced and it is funny some men now come in and do there nails —Han

2008-03-24 22:39:55   If you have any complaints, just wait for the owner. She is really nice and really good. Some of the other ladies are new so they do not do as good of a job but I would not go as far to say the place is bad. This is a vietnamese family-run nail salon. Come on... I am a dude and i have a good time. plus... they gave me some good oranges :)
