    Nice place for kids manicure
    I booked a slot for myself and my daughter on a weekday for our date night. The place is small yet cozy. My daughter was supposed to get the manicure and pedicure (quickie one for kids) but she did not have flip flops on so she just had a manicure. I had a foot massage. The services were good, the beauticians were nice and made our self-care bonding time more relaxing.

    Perfect!
    The place is situated in a really atmospheric part of Singapore (area surrounding has great Turkish/Lebanese restaurants) and the salon is very clean, smells great and has very comfortable chairs to recline in while having your foot massage or manicure/pedicure. The staff are attentive and gentle, and give good recommendations for nail colour if you ask. You can even watch Netflix on their tablet (which I happily did) during the session if you want. Lovely experience there.

    Outstanding service and value at a socially conscious salon
    Located in a picturesque street (333 Kreta Ayer Road, #02-15), this salon offers excellent service at a fair price. As well as manicures and pedicures, the salon has a small number of items for sale; the one I wanted was not available in-store at the time of my visit, but staff followed up and contacted me to let me know they had tracked down the item and could arrange in-store collection or delivery; all this was unrequested. Thank you, Nail Social for going above and beyond!

    Impeccable service and amazing pedicure
    Impeccable service as usual at the Nail Social. My favorite place to get a pedicure. Always very thoroughly done and great selection of colors. Have been coming several times already and will definitely come again. Thanks!

    Comfortable nail salon with great service e
    I did gel manicure and pedicure. Very happy their service. Cosy place with comfortable chair, tablets provided to watch shows given that doing nails can take 2hrs. Was introduce by my friend. Price wise I spent $195 for manicure with art work for wedding, and basic gel pedicure.

Rachel is skillful and meticulous. My toenails aren’t the most healthy and sometimes can be painful to trim and clean but I didn’t experience any discomfort under Rachel’s care. She is also professional in ensuring the polishing is done well. Will recommend friends and return for future visits.

I had a terrible experience at this nail salon. I came in for an express manicure and was informed on arrival that I would need extra time and cost to remove the existing gel. This was fine however it took 1 hour to remove the gel! The lady filed not only the gel off but a significant portion of my mail as well. The manicure ultimately failed as the new gel absorbed into my nails in places causing them to become soft and disintegrate. Two weeks later when I went to another salon to get the gel removed it was extremely painful and then evident the extent of the damage done to my nails. Do not go here for gel removal their technique is incorrect and causes injury!

It is a quiet and cosy place with great atmosphere. I love that I am able to enjoy a nice songlist (played in the store) and Netflix video while receiving my manicure service. Staff is very patient in letting me choose my desired color for the Signature Manicure and sampling it on me. Overall a comfortable experience.
