I’m the type that hates planning. I go spontaneously and love salons I can walk into, be taken immediately with no appointment required which often ends up being a less than fantastic experience. It is only on rare occasion where I just love the place so much I make sure I go… even if it is across town.
I Love Nails is probably the best manicure pedicure experience I have had in a very long time. Could it be the Audrey Hepburn feeling you get in the delicious retro ambiance or could it be that all the staff actually care about you. It might just be that it’s the one place where I always walk out with fresh fingers and toes and perfect paint.
I loathe those salons that cut corners. You know the kind that put the icky nail thinner to get their last bit of nail polish out of the bottle. They tell you they don’t and if you are an expert like I am, you know when they do only after you leave the salon to find your nails not drying even an hour afterwards. They tell you the
thinner is okay and doesn’t do this it just takes longer to dry. The problem is, that is a lie, it never dries, even 4 to 5 hours later while you are sleeping you see the nail polish shift on your nails and your pretty nails you purposely protected from touching anything for the last many hours are now ruined by your covers in bed.
I Love Nails is located on Third Street in West Hollywood, very close to the Grove. They have decent hours, 10-8 Mon through Sat for those of you that work late and they often stay open to take you in if you are in desperate need of relaxation and even open Sunday 10-7.
Visit I Love Nails at 8036 1/2 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048 or phone ahead for an appointment (323) 651-4700. I assure you, you won’t be dissatisfied!
