Do not attemp go to Blooming nail for a try--strong recommended – Do not go to blooming Nail
March 07, 2007
This morning I woke up around 7::30am...
My intuition told me I better check my nail again to see do I need go to another nail salon to do the polish or not?
Yet, I just did my manicure last night in the Blooming Nail at Lexington Ave!
It was not a pleasant to have my nail done there!!
Anyhow, when I look up my nails, I always fainted and scream!!!
No one can believe I just did my manicure yesterday 6:30pm?!
My nail is getting worst than yesterday after I left the Blooming Nail!
The Lady who did my nails and the manager I was asked to fix my nail after I ruined it?are not friendly at all!
Don?t they know? It is the customer service chain store? Smile on the face to the customers it should be important right? And the care the customer relations is not part of their job?
Neglect, ignore, avoid and truly unfriendly are what I feel in the blooming nail..!
I am so regret; I should not waste my time to give the blooming nail try...
This tried again still the same the few years ago I was in the blooming Nail in the 7th Ave!
I am very pisxxx off, and so mad about my self not...
There are tons of nail salons in the city -- do not go here!! – I went into Bloomie Nails on 23rd street today for a few services. After my manicure I had asked for a 10 minute chair massage. Before the massage, I paid by credit card and then found that I only had a $5 bill in my wallet for tip. I gave her that and was going to use the ATM that was in the salon right after my massage to get money and give her another $5. When I went to the massage chair, my woman showed the other women my bill and the tip. She then proceeded to give me an extremely painful and rough massage, which she was completely doing on purpose because she thought she was getting stiffed. She jammed her elbow into my back multiple times all while snickering with her co-workers. This massage was so painful that I am sure my back will be bruised tomorrow. I was absolutely planning on adding more $ to the tip once I went to the ATM that was right there in the salon. However, even if I wasn't going to do that, I still paid for the service and did not deserve this treatment. I will never go back to any of the Bloomie Nails in the city and plan to go back and speak with the manager.
This place is a 'has been' – I have been coming to Bloomie Nails for four years, weekly... while I was very happy with the place at first, it has gotten progressively worse -- the quality has diminished, and the 'conveyer belt' treatment has permiated the service, even with regulars like myself. After many weeks of slips and hiccups, I finally decided to call it quits on Bloomie (now called Spa Belles) and find myself a new place. This place is certainly past its prime!
If you want customer service, DO NOT go here! – CUSTOMER SERVICE is not in this management's vocabulary. The management is rude and makes you feel as though you owe them money. There was a mistake made on my bill - they undercharged me. Then after I'm done and sitting waiting for my manicure and pedicure to dry (a treat for me as my wedding present), they asked me for more money! The manager argued with me for a couple of minutes, and then when it was clear that I was not about to pay. She growled an obsenity under her breath and walked away. This wasn't the first time that they have been rude... I've learned my lesson. NOT GOING THERE AGAIN.
Want to relax? No Way! – I was getting a massage and all of a sudden a guy was at the next bed getting a massage. Yes, next to me. I don't care what district we are in. To make things worse, he answered his phone. NOT ONCE, BUT TWICE! I still had twenty minutes and they said I only had ten minutes left. They didn't make good on the charge and were unpleasant with the situation. Stay away from this cheap quick fix chain. It's better to spend the money on a relaxing spa with professionals.
Save Ur Money – This was a disappointment, as I'd gone to Bloomie Nail based on the recommendation on this site-wow, what a mistake. My manicurist only gave me one coat of polish, then charged additionally for a top coat that ended up smearing anyway. I could have done a better job myself. I was extremely unhappy with this place, and you will be too! Also, I called ahead of time to book an appt for a french manicure. They didn't even ask my name or what kind of service I was having, because before I knew what was happening I was being given a regular manicure. Next time, I'll stick with Lush.
Ultra-busy, fast-paced salon offering great nail services. – The Scene
OK, so on a recent visit we spotted Britney Spears--and Ricky Lake frequents one of the Bloomie sister locations--but normally, this isn't a place to stargaze. Clients come for one reason alone--excellent, super-speedy manicures and pedicures, in just about every color imaginable, that seem to last for an eternity.
The nail technicians at Bloomie Nails are perfectionists. Even in a rush-hour salon teeming with clients, your technician will insist on re-doing your freshly-polished manicure if there's even the merest hint of a smudge. Other services include traditional paraffin manicures, spa pedicures (in comfy massaging chairs), French tips, nail extensions and fiberglass tips. Skincare offerings include European facials, eye contour treatments, and seaweed facials; relaxing foot and chair massages are also available.
