Best Manicure Houston 2006 - Instyle Nails

Readers' Choice: Montrose Nails
It's not hard to find a mani-pedi combo in this town for $25: Look for the nearest strip mall and take your pick. There's no need to wait ? that is, unless you're going to Instyle Nails, where you'll get a great deal and a great massage. Yes! A shoulder and neck massage! Hallelujah! The little bonus rejuvenation that comes with your great-looking hands and feet is worth a few minutes of wait time when you bounce out of the heated chair (complete with whirlpool foot bath) feeling fabulous from head to toe. Even pricey salon retreats can't compete since they, unlike Instyle, are closed on Sundays. So read a magazine and chat with the nail techs or just sit back quietly and relax. And do it often. At these prices, you can afford it.

Instyle nails is awesome! I took my sister and b.f. there and we all had our nails done together. Its only 3 dollars more for french tips too. They get you in and out so if you are on a time crunch no biggie. They have someone doing your manicure while another lady does the pedi. The massage is great, its not very long but it leaves you feeling reenrgized. I highly recommend them- oh and important- they are CLEAN too!


The very best nail salon I've found is V&H Nailspa at 6606 Irvington (77022). I've had acrylic nails for the past 10 years, and I've never found a place as great as V&H. Van and Helen, the owners, are very friendly, sweet sisters who take great pride in their work -- I've never had a bad set from them in the 3 years I've been going. Though a bit out of my way, I happily drive there every two weeks, knowing that I'll get amazing nails at a phenominal price.
