Don't be fooled by the 1 star rating, folks. If it weren't for the sweet, kind nail technician (and her decent mani/pedi skills), I would definitely be leaving a review with ZERO stars, if yelp would let me.

I went on a Friday evening and it was a disaster. The front desk chick and what seemed to be the wax-girl were awful and rude, constantly looking at the clock as if I was taking too long for my services. I even offered to pay early to make it easier on them, and the chick acted as if it was the biggest inconvenience for her to walk the 20 paces over to me and run my credit card. The waxer-girl kept loudly vocalizing how they were leaving to see a movie after and that they'd need to hurry out the door.

Listen, I know it wasn't a convenient time for the employees, but the place is open until 8! And, when I called they said they had availability at 630. If they didn't want to schedule me in, they could have told me they were booked.

In other words, the employees were HORRIBLE!

Now, onto the services. While, my technician was good, there was nothing lush about the mani/pedi (not her fault). At these places, which claim to be a step above the average joe nail salon, you expect a little extra for your money - a scrub, a longer massage, whatever.

DO NOT BE FOOLED, this was your average run-of-the-mill mani/pedi that I could have spent 1/2 the price on down the street. Hell, they don't even soak your fingers before beginning your maniure. What the heck?!!

An uncomfortable hour later, I left the place,nails still wet - i just needed to get out of there!

My experience was robbed by the awful employees and my wallet was robbed by their lack of truly 'lush' services.

I will NEVER go back and would never recommend this place to anyone. Save your time/money, people. This place isn't worth EITHER!

I've been a patron of Lush for about a year, but I've finally decided it's time to move on. If you walk into Lush Life Nail Bar, you'll immediately notice the cute girly decor. However, the service at Lush is inconsistent. The setting is great for parties, yet, when I decided to have part of my birthday celebration there, they ended up sitting one of my friends on the completely opposite side of the room from the rest of us. Also, if you plan to get a manicure or pedicure and they're expecting a party later, then you should expect your manicure/pedicure to be rushed. When I went to get a manicure two weeks ago the lady didn't even soak my fingers or cut my cuticles. I think it took her all of 15 minutes to do my nails--not very relaxing and my manicure started to chip six days later. Also, if you like nail art, don?t bother going here.

Pros: pricing is reasonable, the decor is cute, cleanliness, Chanel/Opi nail polish

Cons: don?t bother to book an appointment unless it?s the morning and business is slow, french manicures, parking is challenging, staff could be more welcoming

so it is the 6th day since I've gotten a mani n pedi and no joke there was not a chip in sight!! I was so amazed to see it myself. usually by the third day my nails would've chipped or at least scratched somewhat but this place is amazing!! whatever they put on my nails works really well!! I love..love this place!! and you know what else? they offer Chanel Nail polish collection and the price is decent! seriously they are not overpriced at all. I got a basic manicure and upgrade pedicure that includes the honey and milk scrub that cost me $51!!! the smell of the honey and milk scrub was really good and the place is cute and modern...what else are you guys waiting for??? book an appointment and trust me you won't be disappointed! ohh one more thing the receptionist was really friendly and patient. she was being so nice over the phone when I got lost and you know great customer service is really hard to find!

Cons: hard to find parking

I threw my friend a bridal shower here. They are so accommodating. I got an email from Scott the minute I booked the place. They helped me set up all the food and drinks...and even pulled out wine glasses. Everyone LOVED all of the services they provided. I highly recommend this place.

I have been to many nail salons before and Lush Life is the BEST ever! Every single time I get my nails done at Lush Life my nails look perfect and and the polish never chips. My service is always great and everyone is nice and I am never rushed. I love that the manicurists open their tools right in front of me, so then I know that they are using clean tools on my nails. If you have the chance to go to Luch Life Nail Bar definetly go it is the BEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!

I'm writing this review to help all my loveable sisters living in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you get your nails done once a week, then I envy you. If you get them done every other week, then I still envy you. Me? I get mine done whenever I'm feeling lucky. These days I feel lucky about once a month. A fresh mani for me, then, is a very happy thing. Only problem is that happiness doesn't seem to last very long. I'm a fitness professional (personal trainer, yoga instructor, etc.) so for me a typical manicure begins to crumble and chip somewhere near the end of the second day. I always look down in sadness the moment I discover that first chip, thinking "What the hell girl? Can't you ever stay a lady for more than two days?"

So Today I'm writing about my nails because finally I've made it past 48 hours without a chip, a scratch, a nick or a ding. Today in fact marks day seven. That's right, SEVEN! And to tell you the truth these nails look just as beautiful as the day I left Lush Life Nail Bar a week ago. Not only did they do a beautiful job on my nails, but the atmosphere there was very pleasant. They only use fresh, sealed, sterile tools and environmentally friendly chemicals. I felt very welcome there, and look forward to my next visit. Although at this point with my nails lasting so long, I'm rather curious as to just when that next visit might be...?

Thank you Lush, and good luck girls.

Pros: Long lasting, beautiful, inexpensive manicure

Cons: long drive from Palo Alto ; )

i had a horrible experience there. i was on citysearch and saw the place and thought it would be cute and all. But it turned out to be a pretty bad experience. Because there was a large group coming in after us, we were very rushed by them. I went back a few hours later because my nails were starting to chipped. And after the second time, they still chipped the next day and not all of the nail polish covers the nail. The lady even asked me for a tip. We were there for my friend's birthday treat and it turned out to be a nightmare.

I heard good reviews from a friend about Lush Life Nail Bar and so I decided to grab a group of friends and give it a try; and I needless to say I wasnt disappointed. Ive never received a better manicure. Usually my nail polish chips within five days, but its now been two weeks and my manicure is still in great condition. They have lots of nice nail polishes to choose from. I went with Chanel. This is a great place to hold a birthday party or before starting a girls night out on the town. You can bring champagne and appetizers to enjoy while youre getting your manicure or pedicure. Although you can just walk in, I would recommend making an appointment as the place was busy before we got there and remained so even after we left.

Pros: evening appointments available, great place to have a party

Cons: very busy--my appointment didn't begin on time

I usually go here and love the pedicures but have been consistently disappointmed with my manicures. my polish chipped off in just a couple of days. i went back to get it fixed and the french tips look horrible and i just couldn't take it anymore and took it off again when i got home. maybe it was because i went in to get the nails fixed for free - as advertised - but the work was not impressive at all and i had paint left all over my fingers and under the nails.

Such a great idea and sooo much potential!! Great ambience and the perfect location to start any "girls' night." Downside - the mani-pedis are overpriced and mediocre. But where else can you get pampered while drinking wine? Pretty much any mani-pedi place in town, call 'em up - they just don't advertise it. Competitiors' downside - ambience.

I came in for a full leg wax with a friend. The lady did a very rushed job despite the fact it was scheduled for an hour. She only took 30 minutes. She missed entire patches of hair, gave me large red patches on my skin (broken capillaries?) and in many places broke the hair off instead of pulling it out from the root. 3 days after the waxing I had stubble. I've gotten full leg waxes many times and never had a waxing as poor as this. The small room is not well sheltered from the rest of the shop, which matters when the waxer leaves in the middle to complain about the upstairs neighbors. It's also too hot in the room. My friend experienced the same poor waxing -- missed spots, broken cappillaries and stubble 3 days after waxing. All this for only $65 each.

I had a *totally relaxing* mani - pedi. The best part was that the paint stayed on my toes past 5 days. Yay! Thanks for a nice time.

i've been here several times for mani/pedis. The actual service is better than average, and they offer several "packaged" services as well, ranging from very basic to more intensive nail services. (i have not used their waxing services). This is a good find for convenient and easy nail care.

PROS: Convenient, good prices
CONS:

I used to get manis and pedis all the time and they've been only average. But I read in Allure magazine this month about lush about their makeup artist.. and i stopped in for that, but I got a mani pedi as well and now this is the place that I recommend to everyone else because it's the best.. and the makeup consultation was great too! The manicurist I had was Jimmy ( ok, he's a guy but it was great!). Cool polishes too! (Channel, Zoya, etc.). Great set-up with the flat screen tv and the manicure bar! Oh, and the place is so clean I'd eat off the floor!

Ever since I moved to SF, I have been looking for a salon as great as the one I left behind in NYC for lash tints. Lush Life is not it. The staff was friendly and the place is cute, but the tint was sub-par. STill looking....

Ok, I have walked by this place so many times and never went in! But I finally got a really cute gift certificate (that had a sample of Kai perfume in it) from my boyfriend for valentines day. It covered a fantastic manicure and pedicure, my tech was so nice, spoke perfect english, and my polish (which was dark on my feet) was perfect. I had a great brow wax and lash tint. I left feeling like a new woman! I can't believe that I subjected myself to other salons and their unsanitary conditions to just be unimpressed with the service. Oh, and the hours for the working woman are perfect -- open til 9pm on some nights!

Cute place. French mani was o.k. but when I tried to get the tech to do a frost instead of the usual pink she more or less ignored me; commenting that my nails were longer than she's used to doing for a French and wasn't sure she could do it; pedi was o.k. This place is clean; you don't feel rushed like most bargain places. I'd rather go someplace else like the place up the street, down one block. I don't work for "anyone" and I stand by my review. Period.

I had a birthday party here with 6 girlfriends. The staff was incredibly accomodating and the technicians did an incredible job on everyone. The atmosphere is tops,.. relaxing, comfortable and incredibly clean. My manicure and pedicure were perfect, perfect attention to my cuticles and the massage was so relaxing! I'd recommend this to everyone!

I totally am impressed with this place. I orignially had a bad experience here over a year go, but I gave it another chance, with a different technician, and I am sooooo impressed. I think I talked to one of the owners when I was there last--so nice! They are priced well and I really do like their nail services. I must have been there on an off-day, which happens anywhere. Cheers to Lush Life!

I had been wanting to try this place for a while so I booked myself in. I was so pleasantly surprised! The atmosphere is so clean and relaxing, the staff is extremely skilled and professional, and you can't beat the quality and value. The location is great (right by Union St. shops) and their hours are longer than most nail salons. Don't pass this great place up! I will DEFINITELY be returning, and with many friends in tow!!!

The look of the place is great, but that's really what you're paying for. You can get the same mani/pedi done for half the price down the street. They say that it'll last an hour when it lasts for only a half an hour. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

I live out in Sunnyvale, but I commute to the city about 5 days a week for my job. There's nothing better than a salon that's still open when you're off work. This place is perfect to get some serious pampering done after a hard week. I've tried about every tech they have and can't complain. They know what they're doing! The tropical tango manicure is by far the best one I've ever gotten. My hands have never been so soft. I also try to squeeze brow waxes with Janice. I don't let anyone else touch my eyebrows now! I got a great makeup fix from Yvette and a couple tips. She's amazing and now everyone wants my secrets to doing my eyes. I tell them to see Yvette! The staff is always super friendly and do what they can to accomodate my busy schedule. Please open another Lush Life!

I've just relocated from NYC to SF Marina area to be pleasantly surprised that someone has figured out what every gal needs! A clean, hip, reasonably priced, and superior service nail salon. Lush Life Nail Bar is my saviour! The staff are friendly and care about the work they do! I never feel rushed. Although it may be difficult to get in to ( I book my appointments in advance now!) It's well worth trying to walk in or book in advance. Yesterday, I tried the intense callus repair pedicure, and it was great enough for me to take the time to review lush! Thank you thank you thank you!

A nail shop with a liquor license?! An absolutely great idea. Me and a couple girlfriends were able to split a bottle in this trendy nail shop. The manicurists were friendly, patient, and took the time to make my nails perfect. They have super comfy chairs and I felt really safe knowing they don't reuse their instruments on me. The rest of the staff were very warm and handled some of the "not so nice and not so on time customers" with a smile still. I would definitely pay to go back, it was well worth the service. Besides, where else can you get your skin so super smooth with such perfectly shiny nails.

I had to wait 20 minutes for my mani-pedi (for which I had an appointment) and I was dismayed to find both my pedi and the manicure chipped the very next day. The atmosphere is also not relaxing, cramped and loud. I left more agitated than I was when I arrived.

Pros: hip, clean

Cons: overbooked, loud, quality of manicures

Fun atmosphere with decent pedicures. A group of us went in to celebrate a birthday and were disappointed. There was a $35 minimum plus 20% gratuity required by Lush Life. 4 girls arrived 10 minutes late and were told they would not have time to get manicures though still had to pay $35. After much debate, the minimum was dropped for the late arrivals but not for those that arrived early who opted for the Milk and Honey Pedicure. That pedicure was supposed to last 40 minutes, though MAY have lasted for 20 minutes. It was a rip-off really especially since the pedicure was only average. Plus you can go a few doors down and have the same types of services done for less money. Thank goodness the wine we were able to bring in made up for it.

Don't be fooled by the trendy deco and location, this place is shady. You might as well go to a $10 nail salon with mediocre customer service. I was there over the weekend for a private party. While the place was clean, our hostess was totally unfriendly. She totally rolled her eyes at us and overcharged us for services. The worse part, the birthday girl wasn't even offered a free mani+pedi for having a private party of 10 or more. Luckily, there are other options in the city to get my nails done.

I went in for a mani and pedi with my girlfriend who had a gift certificate given to her by her boss - we sat in the way comfortable pedi area - had a great massage followed by a scrub with a glove. While my friend got her brows waxed, I checked out their things for sale, and bought a totally cute pair of earrings. I love this place, it is so clean, and the staff is so nice, it is totally worth it.
It beats any of the corner salons any day, and I especially liked the fact that they gave me the things they used on me to take home with me. That has never happened at the other places!
I'm hooked!

My first visit to Lush will not be my last. Kolly did a beautiful job making my french manicure look natural and not as though white out was used. Son gave me the first pedicure I've been truely happy with. He is a perfectionist. The best was the friendly atmosphere. Fun and not snobby at all. The staff was very friendly and they had the "Sex and the City" DVD playing on the flat screen over the nail bar. I've told everyone about it and cannot wait to go back.

I came here for the first time with my girlfriend who was visiting. We had the best manicure/pedicure. Nancy did an incredible job with my horrible feet and she was so gentle and nice. My feet and hands still look great a week later! I loved the laid back atmosphere. All very relaxing and enjoyable. I will go again for sure.

Pros: affordable, feel like a queen..., or king

Lush Life is amazing! I caught up on Sex & the City episodes while getting a purely indulgent manicure. The hand & arm massage alone was worth the price of admission! Then it was on to the pedicure... absolute heaven. The products they use are so luxurious and the polish lasted weeks. I took a couple friends with me last week (totally fun!) and we're all hooked! Thanks LushLife for making mani/pedi's fun & hip!

Finally we have a cool and sophisticated pedi and mani location! For the first time I was not concerned about sanitation and cleanliness. The service was very friendly, great products and all the technicians actually speak English. We need more Lushlifes in the city!
