Very feminine place :-/ – As a guy it was definitely a very girlie place. Don't get me wrong, the services were great and the staff was very friendly, but this is definitely better suited for a girl's night out. As a guy's guy that i consider myself, i will definitely bring the wifey with me next time.
Perfect! – This is a hidden gem in Buckhead. The new owner was very accomodating for our party of four, and even kindly surprised my friend with a cake for her fortieth birthday! The staff is super friendly. The facility is clean and cutely decorated. We had a blast and plan to visit again soon!
Sugarcoat – The salon is beautiful and the staff friendly. Parking is easy and the location is great. However, the treatment was rushed and I did not feel "relaxed". My nails have bubbles and pealing in the polish only 16 hours after the treatment. I hate manicures and when I pay for them I expect them to last more than 24 hours! The tech doing the treatment was choppy and rushed. The seats although pretty are not at all comfortable.
For the price I should have gone to a hole in the wall and gotten a much better leg massage but the atmosphere would not be nearly as nice! I paid $66 with tip and treatmeant and I will not go back.
Great Service! – The place to go if you make it a regular thing or get there when you can. Neat, clean, attention to detail and service. Love 'em!
I LOVE THIS PLACE – I love this place, I won't even consider getting my nails done anywhere else!
Sugarcoat has a great staff and a strong focus on sanitation. Which is uber important to me!
Love it there!
This out-of-towner enjoyed! – I've been to many nails salons and this one was a different treat. The main draw was that it didn't smell like a nail salon...so I got to take my fiance' with me. Very friendly manicurists (didn't get their names), bright and clean place. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was not crowded. The pedicure itself was average, though.
You MUST try SHELLAC polish! It is an amazing product! – I have been to Sugarcoat many times for my manicures and pedicures... I never have polish put on my fingernails as my hands are constantly in water so it does not last very long... and as I was explaining this to my technician, she told me about a new product they have called "shellac" which is a nail polish that stays on your nails forever... I was a bit skeptical, but for just a couple dollars more I figured I would give it a try. I am so thankful I did because my nails still look flawless two weeks after my manicure... no chipping, no dulling of the color.... just brilliant looking nails! I am so amazed at how well this product works... and for anyone who has had the same problem I had, you MUST try this... it is nothing less than amazing! Sugarcoat not only has the best customer service, but the best products! So worth spending the extra couple dollars.... trust me :)
Atlanta's BEST nail salon!!! – This is by far the best nail salon in the city. All natural - no harsh chemicals used. The decor is beautiful and the atmosphere is relaxing. I love it.
Sugarcoat - BEST beauty bar in Atlanta! – I never liked getting my nails done before finding out about Sugarcoat because of all the nasty fumes you find in your typical nail salons, and the you know what's migrating in water basins. Sugarcoat just changed my entire perception on beauty parlors. When you walk in Sugarcoat, you are greeted with happy faces and clean shiny surfaces. Clean scent in the air, just a happy place to be. They didn't reuse any filers (each customer gets their own brand new pack) and all the metal tools are sanitized hospital grade, so my germ-phobia self was put to ease. I was concerned about the other posts about their customer service, well I didn't experience that because come to find out, IT IS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT! The lady in charge is very cute, courteous and friendly. I didn't book for an appointment, but she was happy to work me in their busy schedule. Thank you Sugarcoat for pampering me and making me look so beautiful! I will tell all my friends about this place!
HUGE letdown for a HUGE price – A group of 12 or 13 of us recently went to this salon, and there are not enough words to describe how disappointed we were by the end of our experience. We were prepared ahead of time that it would be more expensive than other salons, but we were expecting to get a great mani/pedi for our money. We were sadly mistaken.
First of all, the nail techs were all arriving late after our scheduled start time. Then a couple customers walked in off the street and were seen while they only took a few girls from our party back. We asked why we had to pay for the "close down" fee but it obviously was not closed down to the public. The manager said that fee was imposed for a large group, regardless of if they actually closed the store. He was very short and cold.
When we finally did get our mani/pedis, the bench and pillows were very uncomfortable compared to the huge massage chairs you would get at other salons. The nail techs hardly spent any time scrubbing, massaging, or detailing the cuticles; it was like they basically just painted our nails.
Overall, the sinks and floors just looked dirty and old. The techs all went at different paces and it got down to just one girl from our party being left at the end. When it was all said and done, we had paid nearly $70 (gratuity and "close down fee" included) for a very crappy experience. I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone and hope it gets new management soon.
