What Our Clients Say

I had an awesome experience here with Claire!  I was on the road for 3 weeks for work and had been searching for a good salon to get a shellac manicure.  I was extremely pleased with the amount of CND colors to choose from!  I chose Asphalt, which is a beautiful grey color I hadn’t seen at another salon before.  Claire was extremely friendly and professional, and even re-did the shellac process to a nail of mine that she wasn’t happy with the turn out.  She really took her time and made sure I would be 100% happy with my nails!  It’s now been over 2 weeks since I had my manicure done, and it hasn’t chipped at all. : ) I wish I lived in the area so I could go here more often! Thank you!

I was taken here by someone who had already been here before and had a great experience. I am so glad she took me to this amazing salon! It has tons of spa pedicure chairs and boy are they amazing to sit in! I got a Pink n White fill and I have never seen my nails look so good!  I have my own unique taste in acrylics-I like them really short with a lot of white powder. Usually I get weird looks or artists that ignore my request and do really thin looking tips which I cannot stand. But when I asked I got not hesitation or looks she happily said that sounds good.

She was quiet but it was nice because it was relaxing. She was so thorough and attentive I have never had anyone spend so much time making sure they looked so perfect. I will definitely go back!!

My bridesmaids and I went to Del Mar Nails the night before my wedding in Fallbrook, CA (married Nov 25th). I called ahead of time to reserve space for 5 of us. They were very responsive (called me back immediately) and set everything up without a problem. Their prices were reasonable. When we arrived, they were finishing up a couple of customers, but had the whole place reserved for us. We were all very satisfied with both the service and the look of our nails. Three of us got regular manicures and 2 got gel manicures. My gel manicure lasted for a month (through a wedding, 2 separate receptions and a honeymoon) and looked great!

Del mar Nails and spa is the best nail salon in San Diego.

I just had my nails done today and I was thinking I have to write them a review.
I would give then 20 stars if I could!
So for anyone that is hesitating don’t!

I came here for the first time yesterday and I loved it!!! They have the comfiest spa chairs and its located near the beach in Del Mar. Megan and Claire did a wonderful job on my Mani-Pedi combo and I can’t wait to go back!

-Brigitte R.

I love this salon! It is so clean. The prices are fair and the ladies are sweet yet professional. I get my usual manicure and pedicure and feel very good afterward. It is so relaxing. I come to San Diego often and go whenever I am in town.

-Judi R.

Loved the service in this nail salon!  All the ladies were attentive and friendly.  They did a really great job on my mani and pedi.  It has been a week and my mani is still in tact and my pedi looks freshly done!  It also helps that their prices are inexpensive.  I would go again if I am ever in the Del Mar area!

-Michelle B.

Emergency nail repair to the rescue!

Love that this place was able to squeeze me in on a busy Friday and do an amazing job on my nails.

Megan, the manager, took care of me and it was a great experience.  This place runs on time, is clean and charges a reasonable price given their pricey location in Del Mar.

Next time I need my nails done in Del Mar- you can bet I’ll be back!

-Carol K.

Great nail salon… I got a French tip manicure and it looks great! The nail tech was friendly and she did a terrific job! One of my new favorite nail salons!

-Savannah C.

Del Mar nails is my” go to place” for pedi and brows!!  I’ve never had to wait for my scheduled appointment, yet they accommodate walk-ins easily. I enjoy watching how Megan, manager extraordinaire keeps everything running smoothly in her quiet gentle way.

I love the new, cozy pedi chairs with massage features that relax and calm my spirit. Everyone is friendly and helpful even when they are busy. Personalized attention is exceptional!!

And my toes love the attention too. They look fabo and stay that way even with my barefoot walks on the beach.

-Lori H.

Couple of months ago, I was going out of town the next morning and did not have a pedicure yet!!! I went to Del Mar Nails and Spa as a last minute option, I had no appointment. I walked in and they were very accommodating, not only did they fit me in but the setting made me feel welcome, relaxed and comfortable.  I got the best spa pedicure ever, it has lasted longer than ever before!! My experience at Del Mar Nails and Spa was the best, better than I could imagine. The salon is small and it feels great and sooooo clean. I think that the setting makes for a very personal and relaxed manicure and pedicure. I loved it. I will make this my new home for pampering. I highly recommend Del Mar Nails to men AND women. I had to drag the bf there the first time but he has already made his second appointment!!

-Rita A.

LOVE this nail salon my pedicures and gel French manicures are always perfect!!!

-Brittan M.

Loved this salon. Loved the great quality, loved the prices, loved the exceptional, friendly service and loved the location. Had me and my 3 girls in and out with pedi/manis in under 1 1/2 hours!! Will be back when in Del Mar.

-Kelly S.

I have been coming to Del Mar Nails and Spa on a two week rotation for the past 3 years plus to get my acrylics filled and shaped and to relax with a spa pedicure. I have never had a better fill and and the massage during the spa pedicures are the best I’ve had in all of San Diego. This salon is very small, and many of their clients are regulars with appointments, so they have a hard time taking walk-ins generally for anything other than a pedicure. However, if you call in advance (on the same day or even hour of your wanted appointment) they typically can accommodate you. All technicians have amazing and consistent skill and all services that I have had here have lasted in excellent condition.

-Lisa P.

Manicure/pedicure is necessary at least after a couple of weeks and I am very conscious about that. Del Mar is visited by me regularly and I am very impressed with the services they are doing there. Megan is keeping their standards up and everyone there is great with the work and with the dealing with the customers.
I love their work and Its a good place for manicure/pedicure.

-Carolyn B.

I could not have asked for any better of a manicure-it was the best one I have had. Myself and my cousin got gel manicures by Trish and Donna, which were completely standard pricing. The regular nail polish mani/pedis seemed a bit too pricey to be worth it but the gels were entirely reasonable. (30 for a regular polish and 35 for French tips) They were entirely pleasant, spoke very fluent English, and gave us our manicures at 8pm, even though they closed at 6pm. Business was steady and they decided to stay open, with us as their last customers. Trish showed me several options when I was unsure of the specific shade I was wanting, as well as showing several types of glitter to my cousin. She was totally gentle, thorough, efficient, and did a job we were both absolutely dazzled by.

-Holly H.

Trish and Megan are fabulous, very meticulous and detail oriented.  And the place is affordable, considering the location.  With lots of colors to choose from, validated parking, and a view of the ocean afterwards, this is a win.

-Lilly R.

Having a Moment to pamper oneself is Truly Valuable…!!
Moving to Del Mar 3 years ago, I searched out the salons….starting completely over in life after having 20 yrs of my needs being taken care of in Canada. Del Mar Nails is by far THE FINEST Salon to acquire all your needs.
My Daughter drives down from LA to see Claire. I have in grown toe nails, & Trish never fails to send me out w/out comfort & beauty. Megan.. Bless her amazing .  Megan runs a tight ship.!!! Does one of the finest Manis I’ve ever experienced. Women & Men compliment me on my nails so often…!!!
This is truly a sanitized, organized, well run salon. Great job Megan & Girls !!!!

-Barby Jo T.

I love this place…I went through a lot of nail salons until I found the right one!

-Ashley H.

I used to work nearby, and went to Del Mar Nails regularly after work.  They are often very busy in the afternoons, but tell me mornings are slower, so if you’re flexible, keep that in mind. I loved going here because you get a really good leg and foot massage compared to many other places I have been, and I loved getting to know all of the ladies who work there.  They are very sweet and friendly, and we loved our time catching up with each other every time I came in for my pedicure.

-Kerry B.

I’m happy to have found this place! It has a small shop feel, and smells nice too (none of that strong chemical smell you find most other places). I was able to get an appointment the same day, and got a basic mani/pedi for only $36! I loved how she took her time being thorough! I will definitely be going back again soon.

-Emelli G.

I needed a new nail salon and found this on Yelp and tried it since it’s near my office and convenient to get my nails filled on my lunch break.  Megan did my fill and I couldn’t be happier.  I like my nails with the pink but not the white and some salons don’t get that, but she understood that I like a short natural look and gave me exactly that.  She was quick yet very thorough with great attention to detail, asked me a lot of questions as to what I preferred and NO upselling.  I can get my pedi at the same time.  Price was very reasonable for acrylic and gel topcoat
