Bad experience

Very small salon. Managed to see me without an appointment. Great color selection. The girl who did my mani/pedi did a sloppy job. My nails were not filed evenly. On top of that she was incredibly rude. Cramped, uncomfortable space. Not worth the money.

Relaxing and indulgent

Stunningly relaxing pedicures (the Milk and Honey pedi is worth the splurge, especially for post-winter feet), with impeccable cleanliness and a great color selection - besides OPI, Essie, and the other usual suspects, they also have colors from Nars, Givenchy, Dior, and I'm pretty sure I've seen a bottle of Chanel or two on the shelf.

Not worth the money

My friend and I went to Jin Soon on the west side for milk and honey manicures ($25)and pedicures ($50). Despite our appointments, we had a fairly long wait since they only have 4 pedicure chairs. Although the milk and honey is a cute pampering idea, it wasn't anything special. After spending a long time drying, my pedicure mushed. In addition, my nails are filed so unevenly, I am going to go to my usual local place to have them redone. They also had a small selection of nail polishes. The dryers they use were very hot and did not dry the polish. I felt guilty that I picked this place and wasted 2 1/2 hours of my friend's visit. I had heard such great things about this salon but I was completely underwhelmed.

Heaven for your feet!

If angels gave pedicures they would work at Jin Soon! Jin Soon's is the place for manicures and pedicures for those of us who like to enjoy the entire experience. Going to Jin's is not like maintenance it's like a short vacation. My fav's are the Balm of Purity and Breath of Milk and Honey. I've been going to Jin for 3 years and I won't let anyone else touch my hands or feet. After you experience Jin Soon neither will you. And you must try the citron tea during your pedicure. That alone will make you want to become a regular customer so you can get your own little bag of pedicure tools set that are used just for you at each appointment. Regularity does have it's privileges.

I guess it is more than appropriate to describe the services provided at Jin Soon Natural Hand and Food Spa in a 200 word essay. But why bother? It can be summed up very succinctly.. as long as you have a gift for superlatives... you can have what is for most a once in a lifetime experience over and over. Express your value. Love yourself. Make an appointment now.

VERY NICE

Went with a girlfriend to the west side location and loved the calmness of this place. Good selection of pedicures. We got the Milk and Honey. Very nice. Massage wasn't long enough and although my feet were pumiced, she didn't feel to see if they were smooth. Must always check before moving onto the next foot. so, they are now rough again. Overall - it warmed me up and calmed me down. I would go back again just for the Citrus tea they serve.
