mediocre at best

  • No, I would not go back!

The manicures are $12 and just okay, I wasn't blown away. Also, beware of using your credit or debit card here since you have to spend at least $20 to use a card. I was totally hassled for not having cash and no one likes that feeling.

NEW CHAIRS!

As noted, I've been coming to Bloomie for several years now - usually right after work about twice a month. I'm astounded by their customer service, excellent nail and spa technicians, and now...their updated technology! They've just purchased an entire set of new chairs!

Long-time customer

As a long-time customer, I was astounded to see the lack of good reviews for Bloomie that has served me for years. I believe that the problem is not enough people who are happy, go to the reviews. Well, my wife brought me one afternoon and we have not stopped going ever since. Hopefully if their listening, I want to say thank you for your amazing service, friendly employees, and super-clean store.

My absolute favorite nail place

This is bar none, my favorite nail salon in Manhattan and I got to go for FREE this past weekend cuz I got gifted a LuxeNow nail salon giftcard recently (itÂ’s like SpaFinder, but for nail salons you can use all over the city, check it out at www.LuxeNow.com) . it is cute, cozy, and most importantly, very clean. They open new mini packages of sterilized nail tools right in front of you, which is about as good as you can get on that front. They are so sweet, and the ladies working there are very professional and meticulous. The one draw back is that they do take a while to get everything done--it is much more of a spa experience than an in-and-out nail painting--but it is totally relaxing and worth every minute.

awful service and deson't sterilize instrument

  • No, I would not go back!

So they say this is a great nail salon... I went there once and will never go there again. While getting my manicure I got cut not once but three times on the same finger. I realized that they do not sterilize any instruments. I witness a customer with severe nail fungus had just finished getting a pedicure and the manicurist went head and used the same instruments on the next customer without even bother cleaning or sterilizing her tools. It was disgusting

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
