    This place never disappoints. Everyone does such a good job. Had my nails done by Wendy and Kevin today and as always, I am very thrilled with the results. I also love that it is super clean. None of the typical nail polish stains and dust you see in other salons. Highly recommend

    I am not one to get manicures at all because my nails are so thin but I wanted to get a gel manicure for vacation. They explained everything in detail and all the possible options to help protect my nails. Very nice job. Then all I had was American Express card (not accepted there) and they trusted me to go home and bring back payment. I will definitely go back. Thank youService: Gel manicures

    I really enjoyed my gel manicure and signature pedicure. The ladies were friendly, did a great job and gave great massages. I don’t love sitting there for a long time so I’m so happy that they were quick yet did a great job. Pay for the extra massage- it’s worth it! Walked out feeling better than when I walked in. I’m happy to have found a new nail spot closer to home- I’ll definitely be going back.Services: Pedicure

    This is my third time going to this nail salon and each time I get more impressed by their cleanliness professionalism and friendly customer service. My favorite nail technician is Cindy. She is fantastic at her craft. She knows exactly what I like and listens to me which I really appreciate as a customer as other places just do the bare minimum and could care less what you think. Not at 2EM!! They care about their customers and want them to return. I got gel manicure and paint this time and as usual my nails look beautiful. They offer 10% discount if you pay cash and they gave me a Xmas present. How thoughtful are they!!! Love this place so much I make the drive all the way from 29 Palms which is near Joshua Tree for those of you who don’t know how far I drive!!! Cindy is totally worth it!! She works 6 days a week off on Mondays.Services: Pedicure

    Beautiful space, friendly service, clean and a great selection of nail polish colors. A bonus was a discount for my first visit here-I will return!

    Very clean! I got a design- didn't do much so I can't give a full review yet but the place looks great. The design was well done, reasonable price.

    I recently moved to Irvine and have been searching for a new nail salon. I really appreciated that they took me as a walk-in and had me immediately seated with a nail technician. I usually go to private nail techs who are very meticulous with their work and take their time on my nails, so considering that this place was more public, I was not expecting the highest quality of service. The employee at the front was very attentive and helpful with showing me the gems available and the multiple pink polishes. The nail tech doing my nails did her job, however, she did not clean up my cuticles and the residue of my old gel-x that was melted got onto my skin. She also seemed like she did not have a lot of experience with applying gel-x because on the first try of applying the nails, there were multiple fingers with large air bubbles. I did ask for those nails to be redone because I was worried with water getting stuck and forming mold. She was understanding and did redo the nails no problem. When done with the service, cuticle oil or lotion was not applied on my nails/hands. Overall, the service at this shop was very average more 3.5/5 than 4.

    I came to 2EM with my friend yesterday and I had the best experience! I was honestly pretty unsure what I wanted but everyone was so kind and patient and even helped me pick out the additions to my nails :)! The environment is so welcoming and the decor is so cute. Angela did my nails and I absolutely love them. She was so kind and understanding, I'd definitely come back to get my nails done by her again! Unfortunately, a few of my gems a few hours later but it was not their fault just because I am very active with using my hands. I called the next day and they let me come in and put them on again with no cost! They are overall extremely accommodating and kind and I would recommend this place to anyone and my friends! I love my nails and I can't wait to come back :D!!

    I've been here two different times and both experiences were fabulous! The salon is extremely clean and super cute - it has such welcoming and relaxing energy! Teresa did my gel x nails both visits and I am obsessed! My nails look amazing and I get constant compliments on them! I will 100% be a regular here! So happy I found this salon.

    This place is a hidden gem. I love getting my pedicure and Gel-X here. I would definitely recommend to get a 2em pedicure for extra massage and warm paraffin. For my nails, I had gelX with hand-painted nail arts. They always did such a good job. You won't regret coming here, everyone is nice and welcoming.
