I've been to the salon 3 times, You're very good at waxing legs but when it comes to the super manic here it was pretty pitiful. Then I decided to try a gel manicure which typically lasts anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks mine only lasted a week and a half so the chipping away very poorly done and they were just in a hurry to get out there and go home. I would not recommend this nail salon to anybody Read Less

This was a random spur of the moment find one day about 2 years ago handing out with one of my best friends. The ladies here are sooo sweet and provide great customer service. My friend did not like them as much as I did based on the quality of their work. I however, keep coming back because of the customer service. I am very sensitive about cuticle work and my regular gal was really good with them. After my regular gal relocated out of state, I tried going to another new fancy looking nail salon but one lady didn't know what she was doing and used a drill to get rid of my gel polish and made me nervous. I was also missing customer service which I value. Getting my nails done is something I do to de-stress and relax so I am never in a hurry and the ladies know it. I usually get a mani using gel, Pedi with regular polish, and paraffin wax on my tootsies (I am a nurse on my feet.) They have frequent regulars that I see come in and out. Some customers bringing them gifts during the holidays,  conversing about family, work, kids, and etc. I like that.  I feel Orchid nails is not so much concerned with the number of people they see but the customer service they provide. That is why people come back, that is why they have so many regulars. At least that is my perception and that is also what the owner told me. Read Less

I received the Special Pedicure ($35) and was surprised by how well it was done. I originally went to Top Nails but they wanted me to wait for an hour... I was on a mission so I went elsewhere. They offered me and my friends hot tea which was new to me. My pedicure was pain free and the sugar scrub on my legs was heavenly. My feet were super soft after the foot mask I got. I have no complaints whatsoever. Go patronize Orchid Nails! Read Less

I came here yesterday with my friend. We both got acrylic fills with gel polish over. It was 35$ each which was not worth it at all. I can get my nails done somewhere else for 25$ & have a much better job. My nails are see through even after I asked for another coat. My friends nail Polish started melting under the light & had to be re done. It took way too much time & the glitter on my nails is uneven because they did two coats on one nail & three on the other nail. They also gave a sign stating that they only speak English in front of customers & will never speak vietnamese yet that's all they did. I'm perfectly fine with them speaking Vietnamese but don't have a sign saying you won't but do it anyways. They also gave me tea & it burned my entire mouth. Not happy about the price, the job they did, their sign saying no Vietnamese, my burned mouth, uneven paint job, see through nails, & an hour & a half for a fill. Read Less

Went in for a pedicure ($25 for regular, $35 for additional paraffin wax treatment), and Kim did a great job!The ladies were friendly, and the massage chairs used for the pedicures were well-maintained,, clean and comfy. Hot green tea or water was offered and enjoyed. TV was set to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," and there was a nice selection of magazines.Polishes offered were OPI (although I brought my own), and there seemed to be a nice selection of colors available. An hour later, my toenails were pretty, feet were soft, and lower legs were feeling good from the calf-massage. Will be back for my biweekly fix! Read Less

I went in here today as a sort of spur of the moment thing, and I am so glad I did! Everyone was friendly and very helpful, they even let me hang out for an extended amount of time while my nails completely dried. (I had a major brain fart and wore running shoes to the salon, oops) The prices were perfect, I usually feel over-charged when I get a spa pedicure but not here. She spent a lot of time massaging my feet and calves (my favorite part) so I was very happy. They also offered me hot green tea or water if I preferred. This is my new favorite spot when I need some pampering. Read Less

They have always been very friendly to me and my girls. I would say I get a pedicure every few months or so, and they always do such a good job that the polish stays on my toes until the next time with barely any chipping.Last time I was in, I got a cute flower design on my big toes. These ladies know what they're doing. Adorable!Also, they always offer free bottled water which is a nice plus on a hot day, or if you've been walking around Monterey prior to your appointment. They often have free candy, too (Rolos! yum).On top of all of this, the massage chairs are so relaxing and they usually are not in a rush to kick you out right away, unless it's busy, but even then they don't rush you out of their shop.I think I'm gonna go back for a french mani pedi soon. :] Read Less

I'm really picky when it comes to getting my nails done. I always go to the same salon, looking for the same people. But this was an emergency! My gel-manicure was falling apart, I lost a tip and 3 fingers were cracking. I couldn't wait until I go back to SF, so I found this place on yelp and decided to give it a try. There's private parking so that was a plus. I got here at 3pm and the place was empty! Which can be a good and bad sign, good because I don't need to wait. Bad because it could mean they're not good. The ladies were very friendly and nice so I gave them benefit of the doubt. The girl who assist me took her time with me, the way how they removed my gel polish wasn't a way I normally do it. I hate soaking my hand in acetone because it harms my skin also. Took her about 30 minutes just remove the polish.. She hurt my fingers while cutting cuticles because she try to cut a chunk of my skin off. The polish job was bad, there are polish on my fingers! Ughhh I can do a better job myself if I try hard enough. Overall, the service is good, experience is bad. Normally, manicure is $12 but I had to remove gel polish so it was $20 plus $7 to change my toe colors; not too bad. Read Less

I usually go to a different place but they were busy. So I popped in here because it was up the street. The girl who gave me a pedicure was rough. I mean really rough. When cleaning beneath the nail bed she drew blood twice. Then she took a loofah to the souls of my feet. She scrubbed so hard that she ripped the skin off of my baby toe and created a massive skin tear. It was so bad in fact that the skin on my toe became a massive blister that took 2 weeks to heal. When polishing my toe nails she messed up the french manicure line in 3 different places and gave me the stink eye when I asked her to fix it. She didn't fix it. So once I got home bleeding, stumbling & scarred I fixed it myself. I'm never going back. They are evil, and want to mutilate your flesh. Read Less

The ladies were very friendly and nice so I gave them benefit of the doubt. The girl who assist me took her time with me, the way how they removed my gel polish wasn't a way I normally do it. I hate soaking my hand in acetone because it harms my skin also. Took her about 30 minutes just remove the polish.. She hurt my fingers while cutting cuticles because she try to cut a chunk of my skin off. The polish job was bad, there are polish on my fingers! Ughhh I can do a better job myself if I try hard enough. Overall, the service is good, experience is bad. Normally, manicure is $12 but I had to remove gel polish so it was $20 plus $7 to change my toe colors; not too bad. Read Less

I usually go to a different place but they were busy. So I popped in here because it was up the street. The girl who gave me a pedicure was rough. I mean really rough. When cleaning beneath the nail bed she drew blood twice. Then she took a loofah to the souls of my feet. She scrubbed so hard that she ripped the skin off of my baby toe and created a massive skin tear. It was so bad in fact that the skin on my toe became a massive blister that took 2 weeks to heal. When polishing my toe nails she messed up the french manicure line in 3 different places and gave me the stink eye when I asked her to fix it. She didn't fix it. So once I got home bleeding, stumbling & scarred I fixed it myself. I'm never going back. They are evil, and want to mutilate your flesh. Read Less
