The other month, I went for my manicure and pedicure at CK Nails and Spa (behind the Taco Bell by Barracks). Phuong, one of the owners of the salon and probably the sweetest woman in Charlottesville, let me know that she and her husband were separating and she was leaving the salon. She and Nick (the most patient and very skilled technician) would be opening a new salon in the next couple of weeks. Without getting the name and definite location of the new salon, I left a little sad thinking I would never see these pleasant people again and might have to do some sleuthing for a new salon.
Much to my surprise, I was driving home from some errands the other week and saw a new nail salon opened behind the Sticks on Preston (Preston Plaza), Serenity Nails and Spa, and there were Nick and Phuong! They had opened their new salon and, bonus, it is closer to my house!
Since then, I have visited Serenity Nails and Spa twice and the service is fantastic. The new spa is clean, the massage chairs are very fancy, and my nails have looked great. The best part is the quality of the staff. Everyone is incredibly friendly and good at what they do.
Serenity Nails and Spa is my new go-to!
