The two current chinese technicians at the Chorlton nails salon are excellent acrylic nail makers. They do nail extensions and infills which look so natural, so consistently beautiful and are very well made lasting till your next visit. Be careful not to get mixed up with another chinese owned nail bar called Image Nails & Beauty not too far away on the same road as they are novices in comparison.
I got to know about this nail salon through my best friend Liz and have been coming for a while now. Its is a really good place where my nails are painted really perfectly with many colours available. The spa pedicure chair is out of this world and gets rid off all the hard skin on my feet, a fantastic automatic massage all over and a toe french manicure to finish off for £25. The acrylic nail extensions they do are also lovely and stay on for an amazingly long time. I love this bar for its trendy decorations ,cleaniness and above all the friendly service from the girls. Ive been to many nail bars and this one is the most wonderful of all. :). I would recommend this to anyone.
I waited to be seen for a considerable time for a shellac removal and regular manicure. I do not have acrylic nails and I refused when the technician tried to take off my shellac with the drill(!) as I did not want my nails to be damaged.
Instead of placing a bit of cotton wool dabbed in acetate on each fingernail and wrapping each fingertip in tin foil and leaving for 15-20 minutes the technician made me put my fingertips into a bowl of acetate until the skin around my fingertips went white and wrinkly. My fingers felt horrible.
The manicure itself was poor; the nails were of an uneven shape and I had to ask for a tissue as the cuticle oil that was liberally painted on my fingernails was left on which would have gotten all over my hair had it not been removed.
I was not made to feel welcome during my visit. Both technicians were busy with other clients and when it came to dealing with me the assistant technician did not speak to me or make eye contact, presumably because I refused to let her near my nails with the drill(!).
The day after the manicure it chipped.
I will not be returning to Chorlton Nail Bar.
From the reviews above it seems their speciality is acrylic nails which is fine for people who are comfortable allowing someone to strip their fingernails of layers with an electric drill, but if you want a proper manicure/shellac I would advise you to go elsewhere.
Kim, many thanks for a lovely set of acrylic nails which has now been on my fingers for nearly 4 weeks without any sign of coming off. I love your nail art designs to. They have been a main topic of conversation amongst my colleagues at work ever since. However, Its time for a new set and different nail art designs. By the way my friend vicky is coming for the first time with me next week to try your Spa Pedicure and perhaps a full set of acrylic nails like mine. She really likes them. I have told her how wonderful you are and what a beautiful place your nail salon is. See you next week. Alison.
