Our Top Choices

Here’s how we reviewed the nail salons we chose:

Quality – The results should speak for themselves. We checked out feedback from past customers and whether they loved the quality or not.
Customer service – You’re here to relax, so it only makes sense to expect things to go smoothly with the staff. It’s important that they’re equally friendly and skilled. 
Facility – The area should not only be clean, but it should also have a nice atmosphere. 
Service range – If you’re heading down to a nail salon, you should expect everything to be done in one visit. We made sure that the salons we reviewed have a lot to offer.
Cost – Some nail salons are admittedly pricier than others, but it’s all about finding that sweet spot between quality and cost.

K Nails Salon is a full-service nail salon catering to men and women. The family-owned salon offers indulgent spa services, which also include full-body waxing.

The salon carries a lot of famous and premium nail product brands, which we think provide a luxurious experience. 

On top of that, there are also a variety of trendy nail polish colors. You’ll appreciate this range especially if you’re looking for a lot of choices. 

Their custom nail art and design offerings are also great for anyone who wants personalized graphics and eye-catching patterns.

Customers return to them for consistently providing great and long-lasting nail salon customization and services, and it’s pretty evident. We like that the staff even helps out a customer if they are undecided, as noted by many.

It has also been noted that their service takes longer than other salons, but we think this is because the staff takes the time to get to know the client and what they really want.

We think this has paid off for them since they have effectively forged long-term relationships. One client has even said that they’ve been coming back to K Nails for 4 years already.

  • Offers custom nail art and design
  • Wide range of colors

Client Testimonials

Amazing job, very gentle touch

“The man, I don’t know his name, who did my gel nails did an amazing job. He didn’t seem at all bothered by me being picky about little things I wanted changed, and he has a very gentle touch. He ended up completely redoing the horrible set I got done elsewhere so the process took a long time but he was lovely and my nails are immaculate. He was pleasant and friendly but didn’t go out of his way to make needless small talk, which I appreciate. Losing some points on ambience and price (but like I said I was there a long time and the nails are perfect, it was also my choice to tip him $20 for his trouble as they close at 730 and I left just after 9!).”––Ashley Lazina

Price is well worth it

“My friend and I came here to get gel nails put on and I absolutely loved this salon. The salon itself is spotless and has a relaxing feel to it.  The staff were friendly and did a fantastic job of our nails. The staff took a lot of time making sure our nails were perfect. It is on the pricier side but for the time spent and the quality of the work I feel like the price is well worth it. If you want someone to put a lot of time and precision into making your nails perfect this is the place to go!”––Amy Pringle

V5 Nails Salon and Spa provides premium nails and waxing services and even more. With their range of services, they aim to be a one-stop beauty salon.

The first thing that makes them stand out is that their service offerings not only cater to men and women but also include special nail polish for kids. We think this could be a great opportunity for parents and kids who are looking for relaxing bonding experiences.

A lot of previous clients consider them to be one of the best in the area because of the nail techs’ attention to detail. Many also think of them as their go-to for procedures other than manicures, such as waxing and eyebrow tinting.

But we think what really sets them apart is that they strive to create a truly relaxing atmosphere. 

They have massage chairs in the salon, for one thing. Their additional aromatherapy services can also provide an even more personalized experience, which can greatly enhance your manicure session.

What’s even better is that they provide a 5-Day Nail Perfect Guarantee for procedures involving artificial nails. These include UV gel sets, dip powders, and acrylic sets.

Note that in order to adhere to COVID-19 protocols, they only accept online bookings at the moment. It’s good to know that they are doing their part to provide a safe environment for their staff and their clients.

Clean place and lovely atmosphere

“This is my favorite place in Edmonton to get my nails done. They are quick and all very friendly. The place is clean and the atmosphere is lovely. I’ve been going there for a few months to get my nails done and recently started getting some basic waxing done there too and am not disappointed. I highly recommend this place for nails and waxing!”––Leandra Grenier-Green

The people behind Virgo Nail Bar say nail care reflects the kind of person you are. In line with that, they say that part of what they do at the shop is about making customers feel more confident.

While we can’t say their nail care can turn a shrinking violet into a social butterfly, it does seem pretty professional. This is evident in the feedback we got from numerous customers, since it looks like a lot of them return to them for the quality that they bring.

Customers have also remarked that they felt at home upon entering the salon due to the welcoming ambiance and staff.

Their jet spa chairs also add another layer of relaxation, a feature that we really like. So if you ever decide to choose them for your next manicure, expect to get really pampered.

We like that the sisters behind the family-owned and operated business are experts in the latest trends in nail design. If you come across a fresh design on the Internet you like, they’ll probably be able to do it for you.

Another thing we like about them is that they offer seasonal color palettes, which we think will keep their returning clients more than interested.


  • More affordable than others

Client Testimonials

High quality shellac

“I heard good things about this salon and it’s all true! I was nervous to get a pedicure because I’m ticklish and had a lot of gross dry skin but I didn’t feel judged at all. It is very, very professional and clean. My nails are so beautiful. High quality shellac, the sparkle is not fading!”––Jasmine O.

Nail tech was attentive and easy to talk to

“My first experience here today and it was great!  She was very attentive and easy to talk to, and did a perfect shape and design.  The salon itself was very clean and bright.  I felt very comfortable.  So happy to have found a nail salon close to my house that does great work!  Thank you!”––Shari Kay

Located in Millwood Mall, Q-Nails aims to boost their clients’ natural beauty through a ton of pampering services. They specialize in manicures and pedicures, though.

Their other services include full facials, eyelash extensions, and body waxing. That’s pretty standard for a lot of the shops we picked, though, so it’s not exactly what makes them stand out.

What did catch our eye about them is that they are dedicated to capturing the newest trends in nail care. This not only includes newer designs, but also the most recent practices and techniques.

You’ll find that they are well-versed not just in the usual simple manicure or pedicure, but also in more intricate, custom designs. As such, we think there’s a choice that’ll be perfect for everyone here.

Many clients we talked to also brought up how clean the area is, including the staff who frequently sanitize. This is extremely important given our current conditions.

A lot of their clients were also left impressed with the staff’s skills. They note that their nails were nicely shaped, with the shellac remaining shiny for a long time.

Those are things we like, of course, just as we like the super-affordable rates. What’s more, booking an appointment with them is a breeze, thanks to their online booking system.


  • Accepts online bookings
  • Offers body waxing, facials, and eyelash extensions as well
  • Facilities are very clean
  • Uses massage chairs
  • Prices are way lower than others on the list
  • Longer business hours and open on Sundays


  • Some issues with a few nail techs

Very good at explaining the process

“Would absolutely recommend!! Q Nails will be my most favorite address!! I don’t usually get my nails done because I bite my nails, but I got my nails short and they were very good at explaining the process and showing what to do. I also have a pedicure and it’s beautiful.”––Megan Leavenworth

Clean, organized, professional

“I stopped at Q NAILS while in town for a quick visit and the experience this time was amazing! I highly recommend this area. Very clean, organized and professional! Love my pedicure!”

They say they are always up to date when it comes to the most recent techniques. Through this, coupled with the staff’s talent and passion, they provide a heightened experience for their clients.

And past clients do seem to appreciate it, since they told us that the nail techs here employ a lighter touch than others they’ve tried. This must be because the techs are pretty experienced, some of them having been in the business for 6-10 years already.

More than being experts, the staff are also known for being friendly, and have been said to consistently provide clients a warm and welcoming environment. 

On top of all these, the space is very clean. You can tell the staff has been properly trained in handling and following sanitation protocols, which we like.

Lastly, it’s nice that they have online bookings to keep things convenient.

Client Testimonials

Nails done very efficiently

“They got me in for an appointment promptly after I used their online booking system, and I think they opened a bit early to see me, which was very nice of them! They did my nails very efficiently, but still spent enough time on each finger, shaping and smoothing things. Prices were reasonable, and staff were friendly and professional. Thank you :)”––Bona Zhang

Service is a 10

“I love this place! The service is a 10, the quality of my nails are an 11! Complimentary refreshments. Super clean. And price is the best part! They are my new spot. My mum recommended it to me and she was right.”––Jasmine Sidhu
