I love this place for what it is. I've only ever done eyebrow waxing here, but I keep coming back for more. It's pretty bare bones, but you're also playing like $12. Jennifer. the owner, usually does the waxing and shuffles you in a little room in back that's not the prettiest site, and gets to work. I gotta say-- for the price, I'm always very very happy with how she does my brows. Very symmetrical, clean work and gets great arch. I was really wowed when I left last week-- couldn't have asked for anything better from a fancy shmancy salon.
I lived in Boston for 5 years, and whenever I am back in town I still go to Jennifer. She has always fit me in for appointments, and does a fabulous job on my nails!
I go here regularly for about a year. They do a great job, and by now recognize me when I stop by. They already know what I like and it feels very nice to come in.
The best, in my view, is that the owner treats the girls with respect and they seem to be happy working there. Happy Staff, happy costumer :)
Good service, super fast, and cheap! Perfect. Only thing is, it's not a relaxing or quiet atmosphere. This place is always busy!
I have been going to this salon for a year and a half. I made the mistake of going somewhere else a couple of months back and boy was I sorry. Won't make that mistake again!! The staff is great and the prices are reasonable. But really, I go back because the staff is so friendly. Remember to bring cash for your tip.
I really, REALLY like this nail salon! I have acrylic nails and have come here several times for fills. Each and every time, they have done a great job. I am in and out in under an hour (including 10 minutes for drying) and my nails looks great for 2, even 3 weeks! Pricing is also reasonable-$22 for a fill-in. The salon appears clean and sanitary. They have a great selection of polishes that are clearly new and not discolored (like many other nail salons). Staff is also friendly and helpful. I have not gotten a pedicure here just yet, but I probably will.
I have been to many, many nail salons and have always been disappointed. So, far this is my favorite! Glad it is close to my home! Would definitely recommend.
Can't say enough good things about the total experience here. First off they made me feel like a total queen on a day that I really needed it. Very clean & very nice helpers. Although they were extremely busy they always made me feel special. I'm new to the city but I'm a huge fan now of this place & will be coming back all the time! When I left the owner was in the front & couldn't be any nicer to me. I'm from across the country but this place made me feel totally @ home:) thanks Jen
They do the best french gel manicures in Boston. I've tried many places all over the city. My french gel manicures are the most precise and last the longest when I get them done at Jennifer's nails. My manicures last between 2-3 weeks. The price is $32 I believe. Bring cash because you cannot tip on a debit card. I also love how the owner typically checks your nails and asks if you like them before you leave.
I had to get my nails done for this weekend, and since I'm new to boston, I needed to find a solid nail salon. I expected to plunk down about $20 for a manicure on Newbury St., so I was thrilled when I walked into the busiest nail salon (trust the masses!) and was quoted $13. A week later, my nails still look nice. Check plus for money well spent.

Just had a pedicure with Daisy. Wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. She was very thorough with the clipping, filing and cuticle trimming. The massage was awesome! Not the 30 second slap on the lotion they usually give you. She actually got in there and worked out some kinks in my calves and the bottom of my feet. The polish was perfect. On the toe nails, not on the skin. At one point, Daisy saw me looking at my feet under the dryer and wanted to be sure I was happy with the pedicure. I am happy. Will be back.
It's about time I told more people than just my close friends what a worthwhile place Jennifer's is. I have been very pleased with all my visits. I do not live close by, about 30mins away. So I've been to many places close to home, but NONE of them match what I receive at Jennifer's. Great service and great waxing! Thank you Jennifer's for giving me somewhere I can trust!
As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a solid choice to go for a mani/pedi. I went in on a busy Saturday. While I was there they must of had 25 people walk in within the hour. I arrived with 3 other people in my group. They immediately took us all. I did have to wait till my friend was half way done with her mani till someone took me but it was not a big deal cause we were sitting side by side and could chat. The girl that came to do me was very friendly. She asked me where I was from and so on. I don't mind the small talk while getting a mani so an added star.
The place itself was in good shape. Not the fanciest joint but the equipment looked new and the girls knew what they were doing. There were so many girls working in there, the volume was not a problem. I didn't feel rushed either. They were courteous. The polish application came out great. Even the hand massage part was more then I usually get from most places. Not bad for $13! Our guy friends who did the pedicures were satisfied, they got longer foot massages and the girls had no problem with that. The girls made them feel right at home in a sea of women getting polished.
All in all a good value, friendly service, great polish selection, and a good job!
I dig this salon, and they're right next to Tanorama, so I usually pop in if I'm on Newbury and want to make it an afternoon of self-pampering. The price is nice (I want to say $25 for a pedicure), and the girls make sure to dry your nails enough before letting you leave.
Really good value. Mani-pedi combo is only $35 and lasts much longer than the other Newbury St. cheap nail salons. I've never had to wait more than 15-20 minutes and the one time that I did, Jennifer gave me a discount. Waxing services are also great.
Jennifer's is a really solid choice for an inexpensive, quick manicure or pedicure. The women working there do a great job, and even when it's busy, the wait isn't long. It's not exactly the place to go if you want a soothing, luxurious mani/pedi, but if you want to dress up your feet/hands a little, Jennifer's is a great choice.
A friend and I came in together, and even though it was kind of busy, they even arranged for us to sit next to each other while getting pedicures, which I thought was really considerate.
Another thing that stood out--I saw them cleaning the pedicure tubs after each use. Very important to have a clean salon! I'd definitely go back to Jennifer's if I wanted a little shine to my nails.
