    This legit was the absolute, hands down ( pun intended)- best nail experience ever. This is everything Id want in a nail experience. So good, will be back here- ask for lindsie for nails & fe for feet- power couple 100% amazing. See pics below. Full disclosure kinda gross- Ive struggled with a weird nail thing on my pinkie toe, Ive cried about it-Fi's the first to fix it- feet feel like a baby's bottom, nails are on point- best foot massage ever. Mindie & Linda were amazing as well on my friends, got all 3 of us in same time, & took the absolute best care of us. Great service, great work, great ambiance, great conversation - I cant say enough- come & get your nail love.

    Mindy and her staff were wonderful! I went in for an acrylic manicure and a regular pedicure. Mindy was very sweet and attentive! I'm very happy with my nails and I will definitely be returning. :)

    I've been coming here for months after trying to find someone who could do SNS Dip nails. Mindy does my French SNS and they last a month! Had a few pedicures and all are excellent...So happy to find a salon close by!

    I went in to get my acrylics removed prior to a surgery a few weeks ago. They soaked my fingers in acetone and are helping other customers. No big deal. Well, the lady came over to start using the drill on my nails. I'm watching the TV in front of me so I'm looking up like she asked I do. While she was drilling a piece of the acetone soaked acrylic hit me in the inner corner of my eye. I was obviously in pain and She pointed me to the bathroom. I had my entire eye closed because of what had just happened. I was not given help to get into the bathroom or to wash out the acetone soaked acrylic piece. Instead, she went to another client in a chair using the exact same drill bit she was using on me so it was absolutely unsanitary. I came back out after a few minutes and had to wait an additional 5 before she came to do the rest of my nails. She said I told you to look up which I had replied I was. I was watching tv. So she tried to BLAME ME! (My eye was in pain but I couldn't leave with the acrylics the way they were) one she is done and removes the acrylic, does my manicure because again I can have anything on my nails for surgery. My manicure wasn't great. She left my natural nails uneven and misshapen. I eventually left, my eye still bothering me, I went home and washed it out more. I ended up going to the ER the next day because I was having bad headaches and vision issues. Their testing found a corneal abrasion in my right eye. I had to get antibiotics because of the unsanitary nail but that was used. 3 weeks later and I'm still having blurry vision in my right eye and have to go to a specialist. They didn't even attempt to take prices off of the service or do anything to help resolve this issue and now I could have permanent eye damage for life because they were using unsanitary nail bits and not giving the proper protection for clients. Please reconsider going into this nail salon. I've had acrylics removed many times prior and never had something like this occur. The proper protections and sanitary measures are not taken at this place and as a result I have vision issues potentially for life.

    I am new to the area and referred by a friend as I was looking for a great reliable nail salon. I tried about 3 other salons in the area & was not excited. But found Creatips is it! I love their spa chairs, great color options (and they stay up to date!), and every person is welcoming and helpful. I usually come in when I need some relaxation and am never judged for closing my eyes in the spa chair . Have not had a bad experience yet! Support your local business and come by!

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Creatips. The staff is so friendly, they remember your preferences and are always happy to see you. They don't pressure you to upgrade, only make suggestions if needed. Mindy and Katyln give the best manicures and Steve and Linda will make your feet gorgeous. I moved an hour away and still make the drive to get my nails dome. Make an appt today. You won't be disappointed!
