The most divine spa!! – I've visited spas all over the world and jin spa is one of THE BEST! When I first stepped into the spa the wonderful fragrance instantly filled my senses and I was immediately overcome with relaxation. The receptionists were exceptionally informative and showed me to the lockers. The lounge area is so relaxing, it felt heavenly. The masseuse's techniques were undeniable. Overall BESTTT MASSAGE EVER! After my massage, I sat in the lounge and enjoyed some soft beverages and fruits, and a complimentary lunch!
Amazing sanctuary in west village – I had an amazing experience here. This is one of the cleanest and most peaceful nail salons in the city. It is located in the West Village, and the menu has a variety of services such as the milk and honey pedicure which is fabulous and leaves your feet feeling oh so soft and silky. They use excellent nailposhes here from companies such as Nars, Givenchy, and Hard Candy. The owner is supersweet and the atmosphere is so zen like. You should definitely go here if you want to relax whhile you glam up your hands and feet.
you DON'T get what you pay for – $18.85 for a manicure? i've been getting manicures twice a month for years, and by far my experience here was THE WORST ever! the staff training seems to be spotty. my manicurist had ZERO clue about what she's doing, and i ended up doing part of the manicure myself. the hand massage i got was the biggest joke ever. she patted my hand a few times and then put on a hot washcloth on each hand and i was done. i'm not sure what the hype is, but save yourself the $ and do the manicure yourself. i'm sure you'll do a better job that the crap job i got. almost $20 for a manicure. what a racket!
Best Milk & Honey foot soak, very small, incredible customer service – Okay, I was alittle skeptical about going inside because from the street view the property itself doesn't look promising. But, once the staff greeted us, sat us down, and served us free incredibly good tasing teas, I was ready for the pampering. Not only were the beauticians slow, and precise, but they worked as though they cared. Also, the manicure was near flawless. I chose the Milk & Honey pedicure. I can't wait to go back! Wonderful little gem worth the 55 bucks I shelled out for the pampering.
the most thorough pedicure – I got the milk and honey pedicure, and it was seriously the most thorough, precise job I have ever had. I agree that the polish chipped after a week and a half, but that was easy enough to tough up since I owned the color. However, I can put nail polish on my own toes pretty easily, but the scrubbing, cuticle care, sloughing, etc at jin soon took a loooong time, was incredibly thorough, and the results of that have lasted three weeks. I would definitely recommend this place.
Love love love it – I have been going here for years and Jin Soon NEVER disappoints. I love being able to book an appointment with my best friend (where there is just the two of us getting our pedicures and manicures at the same time) and sip tea while being beautified. I love being able to choose from various high end nail polishes like NARS and Givenchy. The prices, albeit higher than your run of the mill spot, are well worth it. This place is great and it's the only place I get pedicures, period.
Unique and Fun – I work very near by to this tiny salon and i visit it often. I love that it is small and intimate, i LOVE the tea! It is very relaxing, the staff is nice and attentive. But I have to say it is a bit too expensive, and for some reason every time I get a pedicure it always looses its' luster after a day or two. I personally just enjoy the experience, it is very zen-like. Sitting there, just reading gossip mags, sipping on yummy tea and get your feet massaged...what else can you ask for?
quality has gone down – i've been a loyal devotee for a few years but in the last year, it's gone downhill. my mani/pedi felt rushed - they were doign both at the same time and i didn't appreciate that. my pedicure doesn't look nice and shiny, it looks/feels too thin. for my manicure, she barely did any work on my cuticles and a day afterwards, i can see tons of hangnails and dry skin. a $10 place by me does a better job, but i thought of treating myself. while it is very nice and relaxing, i have to say, i'm disappointed with the sub-par quality.
Star-quality service for celebs and mortals alike. – The Scene
Small but well-designed; Jin Soon is artfully decorated with Asian accents. Two manicure stations at the front, two for pedicures at the back and a lovely elevated paper-screen-walled room in the middle for waxing or indulgent "reclining manicures." Nice touches include plush satin throw pillows and beautiful carved foot-soak tubs.
Soon and her competent crew lavish appendages with personalized care, using products from high-end lines like Kiehl's and Creative Nail Design. Choose from seven spa services or create your own (all soaks are customized with hand-picked essential oils); favorites include "Breath of Milk and Honey," a hot milk soak-exfoliation-steam, and "Summer Oasis," which includes a cucumber and mint massage. To top it off, pick from a large range of lacquers by OPI, Nars, Hard Candy, Esse and CND and cute nail decals. Full-body waxing also available.
Simply The Best – Having tried many nail salons in Manhattan, I can safely say that Jin Soon is the very best. Everyone there is very meticulous when it comes to clipping, shaping, and polishing and the products that they use are superb, from Ahava lotion to Nars polish.
