It is so incredibly difficult to find a trusted national salon to get your manicures and pedicures. Fortunately, VIP nail salon is exactly that. Find out everything you need to know before you visit them.

When you wake up in the morning, you can go to Starbucks down the road and know your coffee is going to be great. After you get your coffee, you can get breakfast from Dunkin’ Donuts and know your bagel will be fresh. In the afternoon, you can hop on over to a Panera Bread for lunch. When you need some new gear, you can shop at a Target store for clothing and Nike Outlets for sneakers. You can even eat dinner at a number of chain restaurants.

Unfortunately, when you want to get a manicure, it’s not so easy to find a trusted national chain of salons except for VIP Nails and Spa. Although very few people have figured out a working business model for this particular business, VIP nail salon has, and their customers love them for it.

What Is VIP Nails and Spa?

As I mentioned, VIP Nails and Spa is a chain of salons. With locations all across the country (like the Virginia location in the video above), they are one of the few franchised nail salons in America. They range from the cut, comfy nail salon in the video above, to the swank Scottsdale, AZ, location below.

VIP nail salon offers a variety of services for their customers from manicures to waxing. According to Salon Prices, the company seeks to provide high standards to every customer at reasonable prices. The following is a list of some of their prices.

This is just a bare-bones list of services they offer, if you can believe that. Of course, prices may vary per location, but this is basically what you can expect when you walk into the VIP Nail salon.

How much are acrylic nails?

In the price list above, I did not mention one service VIP nail salon offers because it deserves its own category and that service is acrylic nails. As you know, acrylic nails are basically artificial nails that are created with nail tips and acrylic powder. The manicurist spreads powder on the nails with a liquid monomer, and the finished product is pretty and durable.

VIP Nails and Spa offer a bunch of different acrylic options in a range of prices. The wide range of prices given makes it affordable for just about anyone. Here are some of those options:

  • Full Set Of Pink and White Acrylic: $45.00&up
  • Refill Of Pink and White Acrylic:     $40.00&up
  • Full Set Of Crystal Acrylic:              $30.00&up
  • Refill Of Crystal Acrylic:                  $20.00&up
  • Full Set Of Regular Acrylic:            $25.00&up
  • Refill Of Regular Acrylic:                $15.00&up
  • Full Set Of Overlay Acrylic:            $25.00&up
  • Refill Of Overlay Acrylic:                $15.00&up

VIP nail salon also offers gel nails. These are like acrylic nails, but instead of using powder acrylic, gel nails are applied by attaching (if desired) tips and painting them with multiple layers of gel nail polish. These nails look more natural and begin at $45.

Whichever nails you choose, former customers of the salons seem to absolutely love the services they have received.

VIP Nails and Spa reviews

In addition to offering an abundance of services at affordable prices, the customers who visit VIP nail salon have been incredibly happy after a visit.

Traci from Manitowoc, Wisconsin, stopped by her local VIP nail salon and said that even though she did not have an appointment, “Everyone was friendly, courteous, and efficient.”

Louise, from Appleton, Wisconsin had a similar experience saying,” I have been happy with everything I have had done. I would recommend.”

It’s not just customers in Wisconsin who are happy. Kimmy in Cedar Park, Texas, said her VIP nail salon did a “beautiful job.”

Katrina from Chicago, Illinois posted a photo of her “gorgeous” freshly manicured pink nails on Yelp and raved about the job they did:

VIP Nail salon Yelp Review

From coast to coast, VIP Nails and Spa customers exclaim over their services. Obviously, the salon franchise has managed to keep the quality of their product intact while they expand. As you all know, this can be a difficult goal to achieve. There are stories all across the corporate world about businesses who were not able to keep their services top notch while they’ve franchised. In fact, sometimes even the most trustworthy franchises have failed. For a salon to do this is almost unheard of.

We give VIP nails props for being able to pull that off.

How to find acrylic nail salons

The next question you might have is, “Where can I find acrylic nails near me?” The first thing you can do is google VIP Nails and Spa to find out if you have a location in your vicinity. Hopefully, you are one of the lucky people who are near one of their excellent salons. If so, please, stop what you are doing and call them. You definitely want to go there to be pampered.

If you are not so lucky and there isn’t a VIP nail salon in your area, just cry. That’s right, cry your eyes out because you are missing greatness. Here you go, have a tissue. I’m sorry, it really sucks to be you right now. I suggest you just move. That’s right, pack it up and move to a town with a proper salon.

If moving is not an option, because you are not crazy enough to move for a nail salon or whatever your excuse is, then you have other options. You should ask your friends and family which salon they go to. The great part about getting advice from your loved ones about salons is that they will likely be able to tell you every salon in town to avoid. Listen to them if they tell you a salon is awful. I ignored my friend once and walked out looking like someone in a parody video. It was not my best day. Don’t be like me.

Finally, you could also find a shop and then check online for reviews. Online reviews can be a very helpful tool when trying to find a salon. In this day and age, when someone gets horrible service, they will put the business on blast online. This is great news for you.

Get Booking That Appointment at VIP Nail Salon

Now that you have all of the information that you could possibly need, it’s time for you to get moving. I know you need some pampering. We all need pampering, and you can find that at VIP Nails and Spa if you have one in your city. If you are a sad bear and cannot find a VIP nail salon, find a reputable salon near you and go. Self-care is extremely important, and this is the perfect way to take a little time out of your busy schedule for yourself.
