    Awesome experience at this nail salon!

    I walked into the smell of lemongrass (ahhhh!) and an uncharacteristically jovial atmosphere. Most nail salons I know are congested and frantic on a Saturday, but I was happy to see that everyone was working comfortably, and happily at their own pace. I had called the salon twice to make an appointment, but both times the phone was busy. I decided to drop by anyway to see if there was any way that I can get an appointment with Michelle. I heard she does great stiletto nails and I wanted to try her out for myself.

    I entered and asked if anyone in the salon was able to do stiletto nails. A woman, who I found out later was Michelle, said confidently that she knew how and that she could do them in a few minutes after she finished with her current customer. She then handed me two portfolios containing their gel nail color offerings. I was surprised to be served so quickly: Saturday nail appointments usually imply some kind of wait, but I was pleasantly surprised that I was seen pretty much right away.

    As luck would have it, I ended up having Michelle perform my services... the same person I wanted to make an appointment with. She was on the phone for much of my visit, which I thought was little rude at first, but she apologized several times during the call and explained to me both times that she was on the phone with her family from China. Once she completed the call, she was a delight to talk to. Contrary to her own opinion, she speaks wonderful English and she made some great color recommendations for me. Her little hands are surprisingly strong though, and I had to stretch my wrists a couple of times during my fill-in because the way she was holding my hands and fingers made my hands start to cramp. She told me she would make up for it by massaging my wrists at the end, which did help tremendously.

    I'm preparing for a big interview next week, and I was looking for a color that was neutral, but still had a little bit personality. Michelle recommended a beautiful gray that complimented my skin tone well. I usually like a little shimmer with my color and she found one with hints of blue. Simply put, the color combination is gorgeous and I couldn't be happier.

    I didn't realize at the time how fortunate I was to get on her schedule when I did because as soon as she finished my fill-in, her next appointment walk in... and she had several more after that. I definitely recommend making an appointment, to avoid being disappointed.

    I had such a fantastic visit with Michelle and I can't wait for my next appointment.

    I love this nail salon. I work in the area and Michelle, has been the main reason I visit this salon. I have come to know the workers there as well, and they are very welcoming and nice, including meeting up with an old high school friend of mine who works there. Michelle makes great nail designs, for marriage, for culture, etc. She helped me with my nails when I came, and they have been fine ever since.

    Thank you Michelle, and Revo Nails team!

    This Nail salon is a one stop shop. Everyone is friendly, professional and works as a team. By the time you leave you will feel like family. The prices are great and the quality is superb.

    My nail Tech is Michelle

  • *****

    I really like this nail shop. It's one of my go-tos, as of late. They have specials on saturdays.

  • *****

    This salon is right across the street from my office so I go there to get my nails done during lunch occasionally. The salon is always clean and organized, and the women that work there are lovely. The times I've been I've gotten great manicures - although they aren't the quickest, they always take the extra time to make sure my gel is perfect so it's worth it!

  • *****

    Great treatment Ana did my nails very helpful. .we laughed the whole time..made the birthday gurl happy. ..see u n two weeks

  • *****

    I went into this salon today and had an amazing visit. There was some conflict at the beginning of my appointment but the manager and owner are the most professional people I have ever met! The issue was resolved immediately and the manager did a fantastic job! If you are looking for amazing prices on manicures please go here! They take the time needed to make sure you're satisfied with the results! I would definitely go back again.

    Michelle has been doing my nails for the past few years and i have never been disappointed. Prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly. Love you Michelle! -DJ

    Love my nails. Have been twice and will return.

  • *****

    This is my favorite nail salon I love the vibe and aura the place has it's friendly and relaxing at the same time

  • *****

    Only place I've found in dc that does 3D designs and amazing nail art! Michelle is the only one who can do them and she's worth it. Also helps she's really inexpensive. She did my nails and my daughters nails at the last minute and was super sweet about it.

  • *****

    Stopped by on a Saturday evening to get acrylic infill. I wasn't expecting much as most places I've been to in DC don't do a good job with acrylic. However my nail technician Michelle did such a great job, I was impressed and will definitely be coming back here!

  • *****

    Very clean and professional, well worth the money.

  • *****

    Normally I don't just walk in to any nail salon, but today was an emergency. Walked up the stairs to Revo nails and I have no regrets!!! Michelle does amazing designs and acrylic nails. I get my nails done religiously and this is the spot for sure!

  • *****

    Blanca did an amazing job on my gel mani. She was so meticulous and very sweet. Finding a great gel mani for only $35 in DC is rare.

  • *****

    Regarding Gel manicure:

    - huge variety of colors
    - quick and well done service (no loose hangnails or uneven color coverage)
    - nails usually last 2-3 weeks.
    - $35 on regular days and $30 on Saturdays.

    All 3 of the women who have done my manicure were friendly and did a great job.

    Pedicures are also nice but I haven't tried the fancy ones just the basic to get the job done/ keep the dry skin away.

    Tip: if the gel color is on it's last leg and there's only a little bit left in the bottle, choose another color. It didn't last as long when I picked a color that was close to running out.

    Crazy busy on weekends. I recommend making an appointment or trying to go during the week after work. There's not as many staff Monday - Thursday from what I've seen so if you do a walk-in on those days you may not get service if there's already a bunch of people or have to wait. Make an appointment or come before 630/7.

    Give them a try! I didn't know what to expect but I'm glad to see they met and exceeded my expectations.

  • *****

    This place is very good. Always get my nails done with Michelle, she is amazing. She takes her time and tries to accommodate everyone as well as she can. The princes are good and my color usually last 3 weeks. I have zero complaints about this place:)

  • *****

    I come here often to see michelle. She is the best! I have been going to her for almost a year now and my nails haven't been better. She is very patient and makes sure her clients are satisfied with the service. Also she is very accommodating and gentle. My gel manicure usually last 3 weeks and I rarely get a broken nail. She is very knowledgeable about the products that she uses. Furthermore, inside the nail spa is very clean and organized. I would highly recommend michelle

  • *****

    I came here to visit a friend and she suggested to come here to get our nails done. I got it done by Michelle and I absolutely loved it! She takes her time to make my nails perfect not like other salons that start rushing when it gets busy. She is also very funny and will make conversations with you about anything! I will come here again when I come visit my friends and have it done by Michelle.

  • *****

    Excellent service and clean facility! Michelle is the best tech!!! They have an amazing deal on Saturday for 30$

  • *****

    Became a regular of the place since it's just a couple blocks from my apt, and they usually do a good job.

  • *****

    The best place to relax and get your nails done in the area, is clean and comfortable the costumer service is great!!!I definitely recommend this place

  • *****

    Clean, efficient and one of the more careful manicures I've gotten from a walk in nail salon.

  • *****

    I've been going here for gel manis and pedis for the past year. I came in randomly after moving into the area, and have been a regular ever since. To be honest, I have quite high standards when it comes to beauty professionals. My gels always last at least two weeks and my cuticles always look clean and perfect. Especially when considering the affordable prices, this is one of the top two places I've gotten my nails done in anywhere in D.C., MD or VA. They really take their time, never rush and they're perfectionists when it comes to the details.

  • *****

    I am very happy with this salon. Quinn, the one man in the salon , is always extremely kind and puts great care into my manicures.

  • *****

    Had a great experience getting a shellac manicure. It's a no frills place but the location is convenient and the prices are just right. I used a groupon though I probably didn't save a ton of money by using it, but the voucher brought the salon to my attention. Anyway, there were tons of gel colors to choose from, and while the entrance doesn't look great, the actual salon space is very clean and well maintained. The man who did my shellac was very kind and paid close attention to his work. They use individually sanitized utensils, which is always a plus in my book. As I was leaving, I asked about specials and I was told that all day Saturdays is $28 for a mani/pedi and $25 for gel manicures (love this since most places only have specials on Mondays-Wednesdays). Will definitely return!

  • *****

    The customer service here is amazing. The people who work here do an amazing job on manicures and they actually take the time to make sure you're satisfied with the end result. I would definitely go back!

  • *****

    Excellent service for a reasonable price for DC ($25 for a pedicure and deals for mani pedi on certain days). They seated us right away with no reservation and gave great massages and great polishes. Super polite friendly staff. Even had dryers for your toes when you're done. Would recommend and return

  • *****

    Perfection, everything from the customer service to the quality of the final product. Thank you so much!

  • *****

    Very impressed by my nails. I had Blanca and she did both a gel mani and a regular pedi. She took her time (took 2hrs) and it was worth it. Very happy with my nails. Very basic looking place and defiantly not a high class great hospitality spot BUT I don't care because the people were nice and die a GREAT JOB and personally I only come to a nail spot for 2 reasons: to not understand a word the people are saying a note worthy nail job!

  • *****

    Blanca is great. She really listens to what you want and takes great care to make sure it looks good.

    Joella (sp) is great as well. Gentle hands, great massages, attention to detail.

    Sara is also amazing! She's a pro at the squoval shape and is willing to try cool and fun designs.

    Their prices are reasonable and they have Saturday specials.

  • *****

    I loved mi nails done by Joella, she provided excelent service on my shellac manicure, she is great! my nails look fabulous, I will surely be returning

  • *****

    I loved my experience here! Ask for Joulise (spelling??), she is great! I had a groupon for a gel manicure and paraffin wax. My gel manicure came out really well and has lasted this past week and a half with only minor chips! Although I have had manicures last longer without chipping, this was definitely a better experience than other times I have gotten gel manicures.

    Blanca is great. She really listens to what you want and takes great care to make sure it looks good.

    Joella (sp) is great as well. Gentle hands, great massages, attention to detail.

    Walked in on a Sunday without an appointment and was served right away. Good assortment of colors, nice service and clean place. Good job with the pedicure. Nothing super duper fancy but good for the price ($25).

  • *****

    very nice people. small, clean

    They did it again! Nails and waxing at this place is amazing. Best nail place in Van Ness/Cleveland Park area. Great prices, great service and quality manis and pedis.

  • *****

    Revo Nails and Spa is a great place for a manicure. The salon is located upstairs next to a garage that is also run by the owner of the salon. Very affordable prices and great staff. Definitely recommended!

  • *****

    Got a Shellac Mani for $30. The service was absolutely excellent. They took there time and it shows! My nails look fabulous, I will surely be returning.

  • *****

    Second time here. I got a pedicure and wasting with Blanca. She was great! Prices are very affordable!

  • *****

    I got a mani/pedi and it was a Saturday special so I only paid $28. The massage portion of the pedi and mani was kind of weak, but that's not a big deal to me. My toes look flawless and even the girl next to me wanted the color I chose. My nails look great! The technician was even helpful when the color I chose for my nails looked a little plain. She ended up personalizing it by letting me put glitter on random nails, and even went out of her way to make sure the flecks of gold actually stayed on my nails. I have been looking for a decent salon for a while in this area, and I'll definitely be back.

  • *****

    Fist time there and it was great! I got a gel manicure by Joelis and she did a fantastic job. They are under new management! Prices are super competitive!

  • *****

    Neat, clean, and modern salon. Across from UDC, on the 2nd floor. I have recently moved to the Van Ness neighborhood and was pleased to find a competent and friendly nail salon nearby. I've had a pedicure/manicure twice. Both visits went well.

  • *****

    Sanitation is our first priority. We are in the business since 1996.

  • *****

    I got my nail done on Saturday with the special price that they have right now. They look fantastic, loved it. I definitely come back

  • ******

    There is a man that works in this salon who asks me too many personal questions and it appears to be b sexual borderline sexual harassment. I am 56 years old and I am sick and tired of being interrogated about my decision to be single.

  • *****

    I love my nails done by Blanca! I came in on a weekday afternoon for a shellac mani and parrafin spa. Make sure to call ahead at least 30 mins beforehand to make sure there is staff available to accommodate you. The prices here are cheap which is expected because it is a no frills, get in get out manicure. They are under new management so the place is clean and they sanitize their tools. A french manicure is an additional $5. The parrafin treatment was included in the special and was nice, but I would not pay additional for it in the future. I will be sure to visit again!

  • *****

    I love my nails .. excellent work and good prices. I recommend it 100% good attention and pleasant place
