“An absolute gem of a nail salon! They believe in taking the time to ensure the absolute best quality and care. They are truly amazing!

“We know that making people look good on the outside helps with confidence on the inside. If we can help you feel a little bit better on the inside by making you look amazing on the outside, it makes our day! We know it’s not that simple, but everyone has a vision of what the best version of themselves looks like, so let us help you get there! We encourage clients to share their goals for their nails and skin so we can customize a regimen or beauty program that may help them reach their goals faster.”

Building Success Through Great Service and Community Involvement

At Ethereal Nails & Express Spa, they know they do unparalleled work, and they’re not afraid to ask their clients for reviews. They always encourage their clients to spread the word to their friends and family or hop online and leave a review when they have a great experience.

Apart from the business they get from referrals and a strong online reputation, Elizabeth has gotten the word out there about Ethereal Nails & Express Spa by getting involved in local events within their community and by giving back by working with charities. They believe that it’s important to help small businesses and to build a tight community, and they make it a point to support other businesses in their area by using local products.

We asked Elizabeth what advice she has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are her words of wisdom:

“Always go 1,000 percent for your clients so they’ll be happy and share their experience.”

Arizona’s Top Rated Local® Nail Salons Award Winner: Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa is a 2018 award winner for nail salons in Arizona!

If you’re in need of a professional nail services in Phoenix, there’s one nail salon that can’t be beat — Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa.

Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa has earned dozens of online reviews with an average rating of 4.98 stars, an impressive Rating Score™ of 95.76 and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being ranked number one out of all of the nail salons in Arizona!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews they’ve received from their happy customers:

“The most talented and professional nail tech in Arizona. What you need can be created. The owner is truly gifted. Experiencing this nail spa is a must. You wont be disappointed. I have been coming for nine years, and I still get amazed by my nail art.”

Not Your Average Nail Salon

Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa is a nail salon that dares to be different.

Nikhia, the owner of Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa, believes that you should always be yourself, that everyone quests for something and that everyone is different. That’s why she has set out to make Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa a different kind of nail salon.

One of the main things that sets Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa apart from other nail salons is that Nikhia doesn’t use stencils. This allows her to create unique nail art that’s designed specifically for the individual, not just the cookie-cutter designs that customers can get at any nail salon.

We asked Nikhia why she does what she does. Here’s what she had to say:

“I was in school for engineering in order to make money. Nails became my outlet, taking me away from the stresses of everyday life. Everyone has an outlet — or a quest — and if I can help them find their quest through nails, I will.”

Building Success Through Making Connections

Nikhia doesn’t have to ask her clients for reviews. Instead, she just does what she loves to do, which is to connect with people and create stunning nail art.

In addition to a solid online reputation, this simple yet powerful approach to business has helped Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa earn the majority of their business through word of mouth and referrals. Believe it or not, Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa hasn’t had to do much advertising at all to become the number one nail studio in Arizona. Nikhia’s hard work speaks for itself.

We asked Nikhia what advice she has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s what she had to say:

“As long as what you’re doing is positive and helps people solve problems, give yourself permission to be different.”


Congratulations to the team at Beauty Qwest Nail & Spa for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Nikhia for taking the time to speak with us!

Are you looking for the right nail salon in Scottsdale? If so, look no further than Azure Nail Studio.

Here is one of the many reviews that helped them get there:

“Oh my gosh. First off, I never need to go get repairs between appointments. My nails last so long — it’s four weeks or more until I go in for fills. The pedicures cure my runner’s feet, and that is important because I love flip flops and soft feet. Sabrina is so talented and artistic that I always let her try new designs. She is a fun person to be around. I always enjoy her company. Top rank to this lady and her impeccable skill!” – Laura R

Not Your Average Nail Salons

The main thing that sets Azure Nail Studio apart from other nail salons is their commitment to providing their customers the personalized service they need. Customers at Azure Nail Salon enjoy a more intimate experience, where they get one-on-one service that is catered to their individual needs.

We asked the owner of Azure Nail Studio, Sabrina Greenwood, why they do what they do. Here’s what she had to say:

“We love uplifting people by pampering them and making them feel better by improving their appearance. We’re beauty professionals but also therapists, and the fact that we get to be a listening ear is a bonus.”

Building Success Through Word of Mouth and a Strong Online Presence

Sabrina credits her company’s solid online reputation to the fact that they encourage their clients to share their experiences online.

A lot of the traffic at Azure Nail Studio comes from their online reviews, and maintaining and building their online presence is a huge focus for them. They work with local charities, like The Dream Center, and they get their name out there by networking. Word of mouth is another huge source of growth for the company.

We asked Sabrina what advice she has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. She had these words of wisdom to share:

“Stay consistent, get excited and tell your clients to write reviews. Also, make sure you’re visible online because the internet is the go-to place to find businesses.”


Congratulations to the team at Azure Nail Studio for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Sabrina, for taking the time to speak with us!

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Nail Salon Award Winner: Brea’s Nails

We are thrilled to announce that Brea’s Nails is a 2018 Top Rated Local® award winner! Because of their excellent online reviews, they’ve earned a stellar 95.48 Rating Score®. Here are a couple of the overwhelmingly positive reviews that got them here:

“Brea is amazing, SUPER friendly, knowledgeable, and does excellent work! I don’t do professional manicures often. My last one was probably over 10 years ago. After this experience, I will definitely treat myself and support this small business owner more often! Thank you, Brea!” – Mel Ann R.

“I love Brea. She does the best nails. My sister referred me to her and I’m so glad she did. Thank you, Brea. You made my bad week good.” -Brittney D.

“Brea is so friendly and down to earth! I love going to get my nails done with her. She pays close attention to detail and I’m never disappointed when I leave. She makes me feel so welcomed like I’m part of her family every time I sit down in her chair. I don’t trust anyone else to do my nails anymore. She’s the best!” -Tamara D.

Brea Lightfield, owner of Brea’s Nails, took a moment to speak with us about her business. Here’s what she had to say:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

The easiest answer is that I put my customers first. I take pride in not only my product, but also my clients’ experience. I want them to feel comfortable and pampered from the moment they arrive.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

I take pride in my work and the experience I provide for my customers. Natural nails are a big part of my business, I don’t only care about how they look painted, but also how healthy the nails themselves are. I didn’t start my business to make a profit and go home. I started my business because I care about my customers. I personally research all of my products and I am always looking for new classes to see where the field is going.

Why do you do what you do? In other words, what is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

I love to make women look and feel good about themselves, but the real reason I started Brea’s Nails was so that I could connect with my customers the way that I wanted to. One of my biggest joys in this business is the relationship my clients and I have. I love being in their lives long term. Getting to share in their beautiful life moments makes coming to work new and fulfilling every day.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

Word of mouth brings in most of my clients. They love my nail art and refer me to their friends.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Focus on your customer and their experience. The foundation of a strong business is good customer relationships. Take pride in your business and invest the time needed to nurture it into everything you want and more.


Congratulations on your Top Rated Local award, Brea! Thank you for speaking with us.

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Nail Salon Award Winner: Diamond Nails and Spa

We are proud to announce that Diamond Nails and Spa is a 2018 Top Rated Local® award winner due to their incredible work and 92.9 Rating Score™!

The Diamond Nails and Spa team has built up quite the positive online reputation for themselves. We gathered a couple of our favorite reviews they’ve received below:

“I’ve been coming here since they opened and will never go anywhere else. Amy is amazing. I personally have very hideous nails, a missing toenail, and damaged fingernails. I was always so self-conscious about my feet, and now I can wear flip-flops and feel confident. What I love about this salon is I wouldn’t feel judged about the way my nails are and they help me feel beautiful and confident. Every single employee here is so nice and listens to exactly how I like my nails. They will go the extra mile to make them beautiful.” -J. H.

“After trying numerous Evergreen nail salons, this is my ‘go-to!’ They are welcoming, friendly and provide great services at reasonable prices. The manager remembers everyone’s name and greets them as they come through the door. Generally, they can always accommodate walk-ins; though, I prefer to make an appointment with my favorite technicians! You will not be disappointed, AND if you are to go back, they will fix anything.” -A. M.

Owner, Amy Dao, kindly took the time to speak with us about her business’ dazzling online reputation. Here’s what she had to say:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

I’ve been a nail technician for more than 20 years, and I love my job. I work seven days a week to make sure my customers are as happy as they can possibly be. Through all that work, I’ve formed close client relationships. I miss them and they miss me when we don’t see each other for a while. Hard work pays off both in person and online.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

Our shop is incredibly clean, and people can see how diligently we work. Because of our team’s excellent customer service, clients want to come back and see us again and again. We strive for a happy, upbeat environment where our clients can enjoy themselves.

What is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

I come in every single day and work hard. We really get to know our clients, finding out how their day was and learning about their lives. We also encourage honesty from our clients. If they don’t like the work we’ve done, we want to know so we can fix it.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

Almost all of our business comes from word of mouth. When our clients are happy with our work, they tell their friends, who then become clients, too.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Work hard and your work will be able to speak for itself.


Thank you so much to Amy for taking the time to speak with us. Congratulations to the entire team at Diamond Nails and Spa! Your hard work is paying off!

If you are in the Evergreen, Colorado area and searching for a great nail salon, we highly recommend you choose Diamond Nails and Spa. Visit their website to learn more about their services!

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Nail Salon Award Winner: Lustre’ Nail Studio

Based in Arvada, Colorado, Lustre’ Nail Studio is a favorite of many locals because of their dedication to giving their clients the very best. We are thrilled to announce that this dedication has earned them a 94.3 Rating Score™, making them a 2018 Top Rated Local® award winner!

Lustre’ clients love their nails and have no shortage of nice things to say about the staff and quality of work at the studio. Here are a couple of our favorite reviews they’ve received:

“After visiting a different salon out of state while on vacation, I couldn’t wait to get back to see Michelle. As always, Michelle listened to my ideas and gave me exactly what I was looking and asking for. It’s rare that someone can get the shape and length of my nails how I want them, she does it perfectly every time. Michelle is absolutely wonderful! I called ahead and was able to make an appointment for the very next day. If you can, book an appointment with her online, it’s super easy and just as fast. When I got there, she was early and ahead of schedule (she’s fantastic at time management)! Michelle was so helpful, knowledgeable, and helped bring to life exactly what I wanted. She took her time and was extremely thorough. I highly recommend visiting Michelle, you won’t be disappointed! I’ll be going back to see her time and time again!” -D. S.

“I came across Michelle on a deal app three years ago. I’ve stayed with her ever since! I drive across town for her, just because she’s so great. She’s a skilled beautician and always a pleasure to talk with! She’s creative and very talented with all the services she provides. She’s also very flexible and accommodating to appointments! She’s excellent in all ways possible! Book with her!.” – B. T.

How does Lustre’ Nail Studio keep their clients happy and maintain such an impressive Rating Score? Owner, Michelle Shoemaker was kind enough to take a moment and speak with us about her stellar online reputation. Check out what she had to say:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

I thank my clients after every single appointment, and I always encourage them to leave honest feedback. Most of my clients are loyal and return often, so many of them make the decision themselves to seek out review sites and give me a positive review.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

I focus on providing a clean and safe environment, something often (unfortunately) overlooked at other nail salons. Attention to detail in both the work itself and the work environment is a must. I also take the time to educate my clients on our techniques and why we do what we do.

Why do you do what you do? In other words, what is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

I’ve worked a lot of customer service jobs, particularly in retail. This job allows me to use those skills to create something people get excited about. I love helping people do something to pamper themselves. The people I serve leave feeling “complete” or “finished”, and that’s really fulfilling for me.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

We rely pretty heavily on client referrals and word of mouth. Other than that, we strive for a solid social media presence and occasionally run paid ads.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Put yourself out there. Find as many ways to get reviews as possible. Also, stay active on social media!


We appreciate you taking the time to speak with us, Michelle! Congratulations on your Top Rated Local award! You deserve it.
