SC Nails

After reading through many online reviews, I made an appointment with SC nails.. and let me start by saying I was not disappointed whatsoever! I had the best experience, my nail tech MARY was great! From start to finish. She was very helpful and even gave me pointers for the type of color I wanted and did such a great job with my pedicure as well! The staff, in general, seems so genuinely nice and I didn’t get an annoyed vibe as it’s usual when you go to a busy nail salon. I would highly recommend this place. Definitely will be my go to from now on. They do offer drinks and the atmosphere is nice but what’s important is the nail and pedi outcome and it was fantastic. I left extremely pleased!!

I’ve been coming to MOD nails for over 6 years and the service never fails. Kim, Candace, and the rest of the nail techs are amazing and take such good care of me. I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.

Luxury Nail Lounge

Great first impression. The space itself is very clean and luxurious. Beautiful chandeliers and although I didn’t get a pedicure, the massage chairs and water looked so good.
I love how he didn’t assume I wanted a cut down and respectfully asked first. The workers were very welcoming and generous. I walked in and there was no wait for me to get my fill in.
He worked super fast and exceeded my expectations.

AM Nail Bar

I have been to a ton of nail salons in the Columbia area and they were just all okay but this is by far the best place I have come across. Andy is awesome and always makes sure the customer is happy. Every nail tech that has done my nails has taken their time to ensure that my nails look perfect and that I’m happy with the end result. I am so glad I found this place because they really value quality work.

Finally

Columbia SC is the home to a number of excellent nail salons.

But that does not make things easy.

It means a decision needs to be made.

Thankfully, this research should have whittled down the options and given you some indication of those to consider first.

And if you have had a great experience at another salon not on the list – contact me and let me know.

I’d love to add it!
