I went to this place one day after dropping off my dry cleaning (it's in the same complex - very convenient). The prices were the same as everyplace else, but the staff is terrible. The OWNER did my nails and it seems like she's just some girl who had someone buy her the place. She didn't care whatsoever. She had the longest fake nails ever, so I was already curious to see how everything would go before I even sat down. Lets just say I was super glued to her at one point. She didn't say a word to me, really.. and her family and friends kept walking in and she'd be sitting there pausing every few minutes to have full conversations in the middle of her doing my nails. Kiiiiiiiiinda rude. What should have taken like 45 minutes took an hour and a half. This place is absolutely not worth it. Especially considering that they're all COMPLETELY uneven and not even 24 hours later, they started coming up on the edges and chipping. I spent $35 on a fullset of pink and whites and now I have to get them re-done. So thrilled.

I am very picky on the shape of my nails and love beautiful designs. I was going to my prior nail artist for over 2 years when I encountered a lady with the best designs I had seen, she refered me to jojos and I was very nervous to go somewhere new. I found almost 30 designs I liked to take with me the first time, I asked her for a photo book of her work and as soon as I looked at it, I knew I was here to stay.jojo told me don't worry you will love them. My nails are perfect all around. Jojo was very personable and. Friendly and I totally disagree with the prior review. I will be going to goo from now on and advise anyone looking for the hottest and newest in nails to go see her. She pulled these beautiful designs from her head and didn't have to refer to pictures.

Jojo does the best nails around and I would rather her take an hour and a half and my nails look great then to get a rush job that looks like crap!!!

I'm a young professional that has to keep an emmaculate appearence and also have a lot of issue with lifting nails, a tendency to burn easily with bonder and all around sensitive skin. I've been to many salon's and am highly particular about quality and customer service. Jojo (the owner) has been exceptional at both, she does take a little longer but that proves to come in her favor as she has never cut me nor burned me. She noticed the lifting problem and found a better product to use for me unlike other salon's that blamed me for the problem due to thin nail beds or washing dishes. She takes her business seriously and yes she is young but highly talented artist, she treats her clients as friends and that makes you want to return. Mirabella her mani/pedi woman is kind and takes her time as well making sure that your needs and concerns are met. The salon is always clean and sterilized properly which is a major plus for me. I give Jojo's an A++. Great job young business owner.

I went to jojos for the first time this Thursday and I must say I will definitely be coming back. First off, the staff are really sweet and down to earth unlike most salons where they barely speak and don't listen to what you ask for. Second, I came in for a mani/ pedi and one woman did my hands while the other did my toes at the same time which I loved because it meant I got to leave sooner as I was a little pressed for time. And last but not least jojo did the designs on my nails after the girls finished and she surpassed my expectations and I was extremely pleased she also did my eyebrows which im very picky about and did a great job at that as well. I am glad i found this place I have been looking for a salon that is young and up to trendy nail designs not to mention I can communicate with the staff with no language barriers. I recommend anyone whose young and into trendy nail designs to try this place out I doubt you'll be disappointed!

I have been going to this store about 2 years.
While it does take a little more time (a liitle over an hour) for a pedicure, the quality is great. I am not sure of her name but the older lady takes real pride in her pedicures and offers great advice of maintainance. My pedi's last longer coming here by far!

Jojo's designs are beautiful as well. I do agree that at times her conversation with others can at times distract her work with you, she is personable and sweet!

Went to this place for the first time to get a full set of pink and nails look TERRIBLE. Looks like I went to a beauty school instead of a salon, they are lumpy, extra wide, and the white is pink. Nice area but the wrong people are running this place, they should be ashamed of the way my nails look!!! I'm very ashamed and will go to the nail salon that I normaly go to tomorrow.

I've gotten my nails done so many times and went to jojos and was so satisfied ,Jaime did my nails and omg he did then they way I've wanted for years that no one ever did for me....he was patient asked me many times if I was happy ir needed anything else to be done, the owner was friendly as well as the rest of the staff, I'm actually going back today to get a fill rather than taking them off like I usually do when getting them done any where else!!!!! I love this place!, If you weren't satisfied you should have spoke up and said something bc they would def fix any thing you dint like,, really they won't bite lol

I went three times the Asian girl that does pedicures is the best ! Jamie does an amazing nails ! BUT they don't even acknowledge you when you go in , never tell you how long and barely look at you while you wait ... Takes forever and the place is a hot mess not very clean .. Never again will I go back even though it was convenient I will drive 50 miles not to be around that place jojo was a joke you would think if it is your business you would fake a personality to keep customers or maybe she just can't figure out how to fake a personality ... Sorry just being honest

Now this is completly disrespectfull and inacurate! Joanna had been doing my nails for ten years and i drive from new tampa to see her. And vision you have for your nails she makes happen. Many times i have told her do what ever and those be the some of my favorite designs... every person on her staff is on firsr name basis with their customers and we are treated more like family, many times i have gone in there talked her ear off or even just needed good advice. She not only cares about the sucsess of her buisness but she also cares about all her custmers...
In responce to the review saying they had lifting. I also have that problem but not because of their quality buy because i have oily nail beds and jojo figured out i need extra primer and dehrydrator at no extra costx any other salon would never inform their customer and offer a solution. They would keep it to themselves and charge for repair. They use good quality product because i asked and did my own research on the brand (cnd, opi, shellac) everyone else that works there is equally talented. A spanish own shop with amazing talent will make you feel like its a sunday hanging out at a family member house..dont take anyones review, find out for yourself and leave there knowing you found a new nail shop, second home
