What a deal for $20!! – This review is ONLY for the Mani/Pedi service for $20. I have gotten other services done but feel they are overpriced.
The BEST deal at Main Attraction is a Spa Mani/Pedi for $20. I only know of the deal on Saturdays so I am not sure if its all week long.... Anyway, everytime I go in, the place is packed but even with the wait, I am out of there in less than 35 minutes. This is great for me because I usually have a lot to do on Saturdays.
I have to agree and say that everytime I got for my mani/Pedi, I feel rushed but you cant beat the price!! Seriously, I will usually pay $25-$35 for just a pedicure at a place and I dont always get great service there, either!
I would recommend this place to anyone......heck, I brought my Mom here for Mother's day and she loved it!!
High pressure to buy additional services, would not take no for an answer, sub-par service – Brought my girlfriend and her daughter for a manicure/pedicure. Service was extremely rushed. They tried to upsell multiple services, when girlfriend said no, they continued to pressure her to take more treatments. After receiving less than average manicure, proceeded to give 15% tip anyway. The attendant acted like she was offended at the tip. NOT RECOMMENDED!!!
How can you go wrong w/ the price? – I'm only reviewing for Hannah who I went to sooo many times for a Brazilian wax. I haven't gotten anything else done there. It's only $18 and she does a WONDERFUL job. Clean and thorough and most importantly, QUICK! Like 20 minutes tops. I feel I owe her a review since I've came to her time and time again. There's a bit of a language barrier but it caused no problems whatsoever. She's sucha sweet person. I always made sure to give her a 22% (or more) tip. Sadly the distance is too much for me and driving from Pasadena (I know, I'm crazy right?) is starting to feel like it's a little too ridiculous. I'm frantically searching in my own city for a place that comes close to this price w/o any scary experiences... (Not that I've had any yet)
Sang and her amazing pedicure skills! – I came in with a black toe nail. My leg/foot shoot the next day was for a shoe company that specifically asked for clear nail polish. A technician named Sang did an amazing job. Sure it took 4 coats of "surely ivory" color to cover my toe and I endured some pointing when quite a few technicians came over to look at my black toenail, but she did an amazing job without a fuss. I will have to ask for her again to do my pedicure. I'm thinking red next time.
In general, Main Attraction has always been exceptionally good to me. The price for a mani-pedi is only $20 and their french polish has always been good by my standards. Plus they are fast fast fast! Even with four coats of polish...
ICK...this place is a nightmare! – signed up for citysearch just to review this place...
DON'T go here! i was reminded how much i dislike this place when i went to redeem a gift certificate recently. it is ALWAYS crowded which means they are rushing you in and out as fast as they can. i don't know about you but i hope for a relaxing pampering session when i get manis/pedis & this couldn't be any farther from that. they do one run over with the pumice and the massage is also weak. i would say with a 10 minute wait (even if you have an appt.) you are there for a total of 30 minutes for a mani/ped. its loud, polish colors are limited & unorganized, and the employees are lined up on the side ready to pick up the next guest...kind of weird. pass on this place, there are several better ones on main st. and my favorite is just over Ocean Park hill in the Albertsons lot called Lynns Nail Boutique. Now they are good!
simple, great nails – Fast & inexpensive--$20 for a manicure/pedicure; $10 for eyebrow waxing. Very friendly staff.
Always call ahead of time, even if you want the appointment in the next 30 minutes. They can usually accommodate you pretty fast.
quick and easy – I always drop in here once a month to get my eyebrows waxed. They're always quick and thorough (sometimes a little too thorough, but good if you want your eyebrows a bit thinner) plus the price can't be beat.
"My" nail salon in Santa Monica – I've had a good experiences here. It can be crowded (wait can be up to 1/2 hour on a busy day) but I think it's worth the wait. They have massage chairs for you to sit in if you get a mani/pedi. Prices are reasonable - $20 for mani/pedi, a few bucks more if you want your nails frenched or buffed. My friend had one once where a couple of her nails were shaped slightly crooked (they fixed it after she pointed it out) but aside from that, most of the technicians are great. They have always been friendly (although of course, they may chit chat about you in their native languages once in a while - it's funny when they find out you speak the same language too). If you want to host a birthday/bachelorette thing there, you can reserve chairs and bring your own champage.
