Be careful ladies going to VIP nail. I had a pedicure there and got a nail fungus. I guess they are using proper sterilization procedures. (that's what my doctor said.) Now I have to take Lamisil for month on end. it's expensive too. REALLY expensive and I don't have insurance. My doctor said I will have to take the medicine for 6 to 9 mths. So i recommend you don't go there.

well you just stay going up there because then you can let them talk about you in mandrin/chinese ,whatever language because thats all they do! vip is good and so is the other shop, I guess california nails has lost MOST of their business.

So that's two infections? Did your friend have to take antibiotics or antifungals? I'm just interested to know if this is constant that they don't steralize correctly or if these are just two incidents.

Two incidents are still two incidents too many.

I've had probably 4 or 5 mani/pedis from VIP since they've been in and I've never had a problem? Chelsea always does mine, though, and she gets tools out of the autoclave. Maybe it was a worker?

I went there once and that was a mistake. They used a file so hard on me that I was bleeding on my pointer finger. One of the guys cut me really bad. The stuff they use to stop bleeding didn't even work. I say be careful where you go.

I've NEVER had anything like this until I went to VIP nails. The Pike County Health Department needs to shut them down!

this is all ridiculous. I cannot believe that you would go this far "hard to cure" to hurt a business with GREAT PEOPLE. It is nice to have several locations to post things then reply to your own posts isnt it?
If the public wants the truth about VIP Nails go to Si Pham's facebook page - look at all his local satisfied customers!! I am one of them! I was so upset when I read this forum that my hands shook. The people at VIP are great. I go there for entertainment as much as the nails. ALL the stress of the day gets left in their fabulous massage chairs! I go to VIP once about every 10 days for fill-ins and pedicures. NO HAS EVER GOTTEN FUNGUS. This is just an attempt to steal business frowm a fabulous new store made by their jealous rivals. The folks at VIP south williamson have worked in the Pikeville location for YEARS. They know what they are doing. You don't even make sense because people havent gotten the type of fungus you are trying to talk about from instruments since the 90s any fungus today is caused by poorly attached nails that the wearer does not fix and then allows water and bateria to accumulate between the nail and the acrylic (which brings about the fungus). educate yourself.
Go in to VIP, everyone is laughing. Everyone is having a great time. VIP nails pampers the who's who of Mingo County. Their chairs are top of the line and their store is well-planned and elegant. Didnt work when your guys tried to do market on facebook like he does did it? Maybe instead of starting lies about fungus, you should help those guys be less creepy and annoying?
Try legitimate marketing and top of the line amenities. Earn you customers. Be a fair and reasonable businessperson. This is bad kharma and I promise it wont ever hurt VIP.

I go to the mall now. I am well aware that the VIP people have been in Pikeville for many years. I also am aware that the people that own VIP nails used to be very good friends of My and Lynn and then decided to come to what Pikeville people call the "back side" to compete with them. And, just like they want to hurt Lynn and My, they are lying to you Jealous Much about fungus'. You can get them from having a pedicure in a chair that hasn't been cleaned properly. You can get them from a cuticle tool that has not been properly cleaned from one client to another. Jealous Much, you have let them lead you down a happy path. Smell the flowers sweetie.

The only thing they have led me to is a fabulous experience everytime I go! And the only thing I smell is a liar. Funny how you and I are the only ones commenting. As to my being led "down a happy path" (what a stupid thing to say BTW) No one other than years of experience and knowledge gained over years of having nails have taught me this.

Funny,Now you seem to know everyone involved? I thought you didn't know much about the place at the mall, now you know the people that work there by FIRST name and the supposed motives of the folks at VIP. Probably should think before we write, right?

Let it go. You have probably already done damage because most people are too lazy to go look up the facts for themselves!! This is a thread meant only to harm an innocent business and should be removed from this site. Stop it. This is petty and horrible. YOu should be ashamed. You are not protecting anyone but your own pockets. Everyone knows this now let it go!!

My pockets? What am I getting out of it except paying for lamisil? I've had nails for years and years. I had them when I lived in Pikeville, Beckley, Morgantown and now Williamson. You are some piece of work. I know a lot of people in this town because of my job. Just because you don't believe your friends could do any wrong doesn't mean they can't. Face facts and grow up. Just because some people had a problem with the people you love doesn't mean I'm wrong. It means I had a problem. I still do have a problem. When did I say I don't know much about the place at the mall? I've been getting my nails done there for years and years. I decided to try VIP and I'm truly sorry I did.

I have read with interest the comments made by deparate much and it appears to be the owners of VIP Nails making these threads! I went to VIP Nails to see what kind of service they offered and was very dissapointed to say the least! My nails were poorly put on with less than adquate products.I gave VIP NAILS a chance to make up for their poor service and all they had to offer or say was that it wasn't up to them to make it up to me!---My nails lasted less than 3 days before falling off! and when I went back to have them replaced they refused to do this! I call this very poor service and will NEVER!go back to those two guys! and I don't go to California Nails either! I go to Nails 27 and have been treated with the upmost respect! And my nails last for 2-3 weeks before being filled in more than I can say about VIP Nails!!!! Thank you very much!!

Just for the record, your story is the same one I hear over and over. I work in a store that has many, many female customers and we talk a lot about things like nails. I hear your story probably six times a week from people who went to VIP.
