  • *****

    It was quiet and relaxing not a lot of traffic during the afternoon on the weekday. The color options were nice and the two lovely ladies were nice and did an amazing job. I got my mani and pedi both for $55 which is reasonable seeing as I have to pay quite a bit more that when I go to my usual spot. Would come again if my in the neighborhood!

  • *****

    Been going to Tint since 2017. The owner Lauren is the best. They offer you beverages at the door and really welcoming. The service is nice and you have lots of choices. I would go back again and again!

  • *****

    Tint is such a gem in Nob Hill! I was recently lured back by a Groupon and reminded why I love this place.

    Super easy to call in and schedule or message via the yelp app --super responsive. I've personally never walked in here.

    They have large soft chairs and a super wide selection of nail polishes and gel colors of all the more well known brands. My polish change lasted super long, excited to come back again!

  • *****

    I was very pleased with the meticulous and friendly service I received at this convenieniently located Salon. Although I live in the Peninsula, I’d love to return!
    Thank you for my great ManiPedi ??????

  • *****

    Kathy was fantastic! She got the shape and color just right and her brush skills are amazing. Highly recommend Kathy

  • *****

    I've been here twice for mani/pedi services, used the Groupon both times and had great experiences. This last time I came in with a picture of ombre nails and Lauren completely NAILed it. Will definitely continue to come here in the future

  • *****

    Very cute salon that we stumbled upon in my sisters new neighborhood! Cute, clean and staff was so friendly! Lauren, salon owner also gave us great dinner reservations! Such great service!!

  • *****

    Have been going there since 2017. Most of the time they gave a very good service. But recently I had two bad experience. One was after two days, the gel started to pill off. Other one was one of the lady working there gives me really rough manicure. I felt burning on my nails and had some redness and scratches on my skin when I look more closely back home. I'm considering not going back because they don't let you appoint who you want to book with.

  • *****

    This is such a great place! Ambiance is great and staff is friendly. They even have a free Mimosa drink on Tuesday and Wednesday. Will definitely be back.

  • *****

    I found this place through Groupon. It was very easy to book an appointment via yelp message. The nail salon has a nice ambiance and the ladies are very nice. They are clean and I love my gel manicure!

  • *****

    Great gel manicure, lovely space and very nice staff! I found Tint through Groupon and decided to try it even though I have a favorite nail spot. Now I have a new favorite!

  • *****

    I had a very enjoyable experience here at tint. They offered me drinks when I came in and the nail technicians were very friendly. Their chairs were very comfortable and they have a good selection of polishes. I didn't know however that I needed to tell them beforehand if I wanted to do design on my nails. Other than that I'm definitely coming back because overall I was happy with my visit!

  • *****

    I went in with a Groupon and was a little nervous. In the past nail salons treat you poorly if you come in with a groupon but never the less Kathy was amazing! She helped me pick out the perfect color and spent some quality time on my nails. She did make them bleed and was apologetic but over all they look amazing! I hope they last long! Will definitely be coming back!

  • *****

    I was searching through Groupon and found this place. It was so easy to book an appointment via Yelp! I loved that they were so responsive!
    The salon is clean, has a fun vibe to it.
    I definitely wish I would have brought more cash for tip, as 3 ladies worked on my toes and hands! Which brings me to the reason why I couldn't bring myself to give 5 stars - at the end, I gave one of the pedicure ladies a cash tip - and she asked "this for all three of us?" When I responded yes, she gave me an eye roll.
    -
    My friend met me there, without a groupon for a mani & pedi. She asked for an extra foot massage - they stated they didn't have time...... but we were the only 2 customers there for some time.
    -
    I'm overall happy with the result.

  • *****

    Great neighborhood spot. The ladies are super nice and professional. They do waxing too! Definitely have a relaxing experience here!

  • *****

    Came here today because I got a Groupon for a gel manicure. The place was clean, the staff was friendly and they have a good selection of polish. They did a great job and I would come back.

    I only gave four stars because the woman didn't file off the excess gel that was stuck between my nails and skin, but it was nice enough that I would come back!

  • *****

    Went for the groupon deal combo gel manicure and pedicure. Very worth it!

    Parking is a little tough so allow some time before your appointment to look for parking.

    The spa has very warm vibes and comfortable chairs. I like how they are organized with their scheduling (I've been to some places where an appointment means nothing and you won't get seated until 30 minutes after your time). This is not that kind of place so that's good!

    Quality of the gel mani and pedi were excellent. I'm very satisfied and if in the area, I wouldn't mind returning.

  • *****

    Such nice service. We emailed the owner for an appointment in the morning and she was able to accommodate 2 pedicures within 30 minutes. We got the citrus pedicure, and any service comes with a complimentary mimosa. OPI and Essie polish. Only downside is no massage chairs and they use bowls instead of fountain chairs so you have to ask for warm water when it cools. But worth it. They also sell havanainas and cute jewelry.

  • *****

    This is my absolute favorite nail salon for years! Even when I am desperate to get manicure when I am travelling or far from Tint, I still wait to get my nails done by them. The technicians really do a great job, for both regular manicure and gel. It is also a quiet and peaceful nail salon which I really appreciate. Most nail salons are loud and ladies talk to each other non stop. This place plays peaceful music and they let you enjoy your time. Their prices are reasonable as well.

  • *****

    Enjoyed a spa mani/pedi here and will go again! Great conversation and customer service.

  • *****

    I had a baby shower to attend this weekend and was looking to squeeze in a last minute French pedicure today. I called Tint Nail Spa at 5:15 pm and they were very accommodating in setting up an immediate time for me to come in that day. The interior is gorgeous, modern, and very clean. The girl working on my nails was so nice and my French pedicure turned out lovely.

  • *****

    The girls here are super sweet and friendly! Lauren is very prompt and accommodating with scheduling appointments. The other two, that I've gotten the chance to spend time with, are also super nice. I chatted with them through my manicure and pedicures, and learned so much about their lives haha (and them about mine, too). It's always heartwarming. Plus, I've always had amazing manis and pedis! Everything is clean and sanitary here.

  • *****

    Highly recommend this place!!! I am in love with how my nails look. The shape is amazing. Most places don't put too much effort in to shaping my nails but this place did. Check them out!!!

  • *****

    Lovely experience! We were visiting from out of town and got the royal treatment. Mimosas and all! Definitely recommend

  • *****

    Wonderful service, fast and efficient. Nails are fresh and expertly shellacked. Did a great job considering my very short nails. Lovely hand massage, steam and moisturise at the end!

  • *****

    Super sweet crew. Really helpful giving suggestions for nail colors for my friend and I.

    SUPER clean gel manicure. I'm picky about how clean my manicure is (I dislike being able to see where first and second coats were placed near my cuticle, sides of nails polished in an uneven line, etc...) and none of that here!

    -1 Star because the hand care portion was the shortest I've ever had. She rubbed lotion on my hand long enough to just cover my hand, no massage which is my favorite part :(, wiped off lotion with a hot towel, and that was it!

    Friend was getting a normal manicure and Lauren noticed a tiny hair that had gotten stuck on one of the fingers and asked to redo the whole nail instead of trying to cover it up--stellar. They seemed surprised when we were thankful for their honesty but you'd be surprised how many salons wouldn't have done that. Love that they care about the work they do and the nails their customers leave with.

    LOVE how easy it is to book the appointment and how cute the place is--offered tea or water.

    Photo of nails 3 weeks after they were done--minimal lifting near the cuticles and NO chips.

  • *****

    I come here regularly as I live across the street and I love this place! They are always very accommodating of my schedule and always work to get me in at the time that I need. They also always offer me champagne and have a great loyalty program that not a lot of other nail salons have. Lauren (the owner) also always suggests the bests colors to go with my specific skin tone.

  • *****

    First time here.Very peaceful place! The girls are very friendly and the service is excellent love my manicure and pedicure

  • *****

    This is my absolute favorite nail salon for years! Even when I desperately to get manicure when I am travelling or far from Tint, I still wait to get my nails done by them. The technician really do a great job, for regular manicure and gel. It is also a quiet and peaceful mail salon which I really appreciate. Most nail salons are loud and ladies talk to each other nin stop. This place plays peaceful.music and they let you enjoy your time. Their prices are reasonable as well. Ozge

  • *****

    I don't review on Yelp very often (in fact this may be one of my firsts) but I believe the ladies at Tint deserve praise for their ability to give an excellent, relaxing service. I have tried every nail salon in Nob Hill/Union Square area and by far they are the best ones. I'm incredibly picky with the shape of my nails as well as the longevity of my manicure (whether regular or gel). I've been really happy with the results (which isn't easy for me!) and keep coming back. Really love coming to Tint - I don't know what I would do without it! -Misha

  • *****

    Awesome service! The workers here are all so sweet! I love coming here to get my nails done! This place is probably one of the cleanest nail salon I've ever been to. The store decorations are pretty and their chairs are so comfy!!!

  • *****

    I was sad when Juicy Nails left, but Tint has me returning more and more! Lauren is very friendly and efficient and I love her rewards program. Most of the technicians are really good, there is one older one that always cuts me, but I've learned to request different techs and they are all fantastic and my gel nails last longer. Lauren herself is excellent at manicures! My favorite part is being able to see the trolleys pass by. It is a true SF experience. Overall, it is a great neighborhood nail salon.

  • *****

    Love this place! It is conveniently located right by my job. Affordable gel manis that actually last two weeks. They also have a points system so you can redeem them for a free mani, massage, or mimosa.

  • *****

    Excellent, clean, friendly staff....toes look perfect!!

  • *****

    Wandered into this very cute lil spot while waiting for a friend to finish up at work (Hello Mimosa and a Mani! **Tues& Wed 11a-3p ONLY**)
    Friendly and professional, they have a super cute pinterest asthetic that really makes you feel like you're just headed to a friend's to veg, except she just happens to be a bomb nail technician =]
    Very professional, very relaxing and the perfect midweek pick me up. Thanks so much Lauren and crew!!

  • *****

    I have been meaning to post how much I love this SF gem for a long time! The ladies here are all wonderful and true professionals. It is always clean and well stocked with great gel and regular polish colors. I swear my regular manicure lasts 2 weeks- these ladies are miracle workers. They are always accommodating and fit me in! I love them! Lauren is wonderful and I love her rewards program! Thanks Ladies! -Zoe

  • *****

    Just amazing !

  • *****

    will i get my birthday gift?

  • *****

    I live nearby and have been coming here regularly for some time. Lauren and her team are always accommodating. My nails always look great and I get lots of compliments on them. The prices are reasonable and fair.

    I also do waxing here with no complaints.

    Visit these ladies!

  • *****

    I LOVE TINT! I have been coming here for the past three years (I live only a few doors down) and have never been disappointed by any of the girls who have done both gel manicures and pedicures for me. The atmosphere is relaxing and the service is always consistent and top notch. I'm a regular at this place - they'll never get rid of me!

  • *****

    Just had a great "special" pedicure with Lan. Despite the record-breaking heat, she gave me a great pedicure with an especially great foot and leg massage. Highly recommended!

  • *****

    Affordable, comfortable, clean salon with incredibly friendly people. The owner is a gem. Will definitely go back.

  • *****

    Clean and perfect nails that last at least 3 weeks. Love this place! Lauren responds to my Yelp messages within an hour (usually 10 mins). They also have a huge selection of colors and take their time on the massages which is always a nice touch :)

  • *****

    New favorite nail spa! I love the decor, the cleanliness and how friendly all of the employees are. Doesn't hurt that they give you a free mimosa when you check in! ;)
    They have a wide variety of color options for both gel and shellac, and the nail art is so unique. I will definitely be coming back.

  • *****

    The space is super cute! I enjoyed a mimosa while getting a manicure. Plus it's a 10 minute walk from where I live. I had a dance performance that night and they took me in for an appointment super last minute. I appreciate their hospitality and overall positive experience.

  • *****

    My wife gave me a manicure and pedicure for my birthday at Tint. I absolutely loved the experience. The people that work there are kind and take great care of their customers. The place is immaculate. I will definitely go back to Tint more often because it feels relaxing and makes my hands and feet look better. Who doesn't want that? So treat yourself. So ladies and gents treat yourself - go to Tint

  • *****

    LOVE this place! Went to the nail place that was here before and was so sad to see them leave. Then about a month later Tint opened and they are AMAZING! The gel lasts almost 3 weeks every time, the girls are great, they have an extensive OPI and Gelish color selection. You sit in comfy chairs and get to watch the cable cars go by through the huge front windows, its quintessential San Francisco. Definitely recommend!

  • *****

    Great new nail place in the old Juicy space. I was so happy when Lauren came in to take over the space.

    Lauren is great, very friendly, and takes customer service seriously. Prices are reasonable and I love the loyalty program. Only reason this is 4 stars (not 5) is that skill level in technicians is inconsistent. I am pretty picky (maybe OCD) when it comes to the paint job. Michelle is exceptionally skilled and her paint jobs come out perfect each time. Some of the newer nail techs are not as precise, so the polish sometimes chips faster and can be uneven. That said, services are fast, friendly, clean and well priced.

    I felt compelled to write this review because it seems like management actually reads them, and cares (as evidenced by responses to previous reviewers).

    I'm just going to get straight to the point on the pros/cons on my gel mani.

    Pros:
    - Many color options for gels
    - they did a good job on my cuticles
    - nice workers
    - edges of polish did not touch my skin at all
    - Good job on prepping nail for gel. Lady really made sure that there was nothing on my nail bed, and thoroughly cleaned

    Cons:
    - not a perfect mani. Some edges were not crisp, or painted to the edge
    - uneven polish application on both of my thumbs. Other fingers were ok.
    - some tiny bubbles on polish.
    - nails not shaped evenly for all nails-- edges were crooked.

    I am very picky on the details. Looking at my nails from far away, they look great. But upon inspection, you will notice that it's not perfect.

    Nonetheless, I may come back, because it seems like they really care about their reviews (which tells me that they are willing to listen and improve.)

    Also, the lady spent most of the time prepping my nails. When it was polish time, they started to get busy, and she did rush a bit when applying the polish. For such a quick application, I do think she did a good job and it seems that her skill level is high. I think if she took her time, she would probably have the skill to do a perfect mani.

    For now, they get 5 stars because they did a pretty decent job on my nails.

  • *****

    Lauren and her crew are fantastic! They picked out some cute colors to make me look all cool and hip, pet my dog, and did some surgery on a pesky ingrown toe nail. So excited to have found my neighborhood salon!

  • *****

    Exceptional service and atmosphere at this place! Was visiting SoMa and the Fin district for work. Took a taxi up here to enjoy a pedicure on a Sunday afternoon. Lovely location right on the corner and you can watch the cable cars if you'd like. Everything is super sanitary and high quality. All the tools came out of a fresh package and it's one of those places that uses a basin of hot water for the pedicure soak instead of one of those machines that you're never sure if it's clean. If I lived here, I'd come regularly.

  • *****

    You have to check out this great spot to get your nails done in the city. Lauren, the owner, is so sweet & nice to chat with. The location is prime (steps away from the Cable Car museum - very SF!). I love that it's very clean (how they do your nails and the actual spa!), the best customer service (they always ask if I want something to drink!), and my nails look fab! If you check in on Yelp, you can get a mimosa! Make sure to bring cash to pay since you'll get double points on Five Stars. Can't wait to go back and get a mani/ pedi at my fav nail spot!!! Thanks Lauren & the Tint team!

  • *****

    I only take the time to write 1-star (only because I can't give zero stars here on Yelp) and 5-star reviews. I don't care if businesses offer incentives for writing Yelp reviews. I'm only writing reviews if my experience with a business warrants one (aka zero) or five stars. Tint Nail Spa? FIVE STARS.

    I think I've gotten maybe three manicures in the past. I don't often get them because I usually destroy them before I even leave the nail salon. But the manicure Michelle gave me? Still looking good after six days. And I am rough with my hands, both at work and at home. Probably the cleanest, crispest, neatest, nicest, most sophisticated my fingernails have ever looked.

    And the pedicure Jade gave me? Looking like springtime on my toes -- a bold splash of color popping through my sandals. Not a chip or scratch to be found. My feetsies look happy.

    The overall experience? Simply fabulous in every way. Owner Lauren and her interior designer husband Mino have designed the perfect space to sit back and be pampered. I felt remarkably relaxed the entire time. I laughed, enjoyed good conversation, and basked in the sunlight streaming through the walls of glass. It was glorious.

    I will definitely return. Soon. And I will get both a manicure and pedicure again. Thank you for a beautiful experience, Tint crew!

  • *****

    This is my second time at Tint and I'll keep coming back;)

    The salon decor is pretty and the ladies who work here are nice and welcoming.

    The gel I got last time lasted really long and my regular pedicure was well done as well. I love how they warm up the massage cream before they rub it on your skin!

  • *****

    This place was amazing! My sister and I had a 12 hour layover in SF and decided to walk around the city after a couple hours we were exhausted and decided to treat ourselves to Manipedis! They were able to take us as a walk in and helped refreshed us with some hot tea. The work they did was impeccable and meticulous and they were extremely kind. I'm not from SF but if I'm ever back I will be going out of my way to return here!

  • *****

    I am so happy that I found the nail salon right down the street from my new apartment

    It was easy to make an appointment. I actually did it through Yelp.

    My pedi was on point. Super relaxing environment. I love that they use bowls instead of the massaging chairs.

  • *****

    Love this place! Good atmosphere and great service. And they do the cutest nail art! Must try!

  • *****

    It took me a while to find a great nail salon in SF but finally discovered Tint! The salon is clean, bright & modern. The staff is lovely and they do a great job-- my manicure lasts a full week.
    They have a great selection of colors and they even offer you tea /water while you get your nails done.
    Tint is my go-to nail salon even though it's a longer walk than many others on my street.

  • *****

    Had a wonderful experience here! I am from out of town and wanted to treat myself to a mani/pedi. From the friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere and cleanliness, I would highly recommend this place!

  • *****

    I was visiting from out of state and walked in for a manicure. The manicurist was pleasant and efficient and I loved the ambiance. It was a nice little break while exploring the city! I will be back the next time I am in town.

  • *****

    I have been going to see Michelle for manis for over the last few years. She is one of the best in the Bay Area in my opinion, very efficient, consistent and capable. Lauren, the new owner (as this is where Juicy Nails used to be) is also very conscientious and thoughtful and remodeled the location with fun, modern decor. I have tried many locations in the city and the Bay Area generally and though I have moved from the neighborhood, I keep coming back!

  • *****

    I was sad to see Juicy close but its follower does the same amazing job! At least some of the technicians are the same so you can expect the same great results. The decor is so nice and modern, feels great inside. I had a great manicure and I will definitely be back!

  • *****

    Tint Nail Spa just opened a few days ago and I had a perfectly wonderful manicure with Loren and her staff. The ambiance is great and I look forward to many more mani /pedis in this newly opened spot. Thanks Loren! :-)

  • *****

    The staff at Tint is absolutely amazing and so incredibly kind! They helped me pick out the best colors for every occasion. I'm sad that I'm moving back to Alabama in a couple of weeks - will truly miss going to Tint!

  • *****

    This is my favorite place to rewind and get relaxed on my day off. Of course great place to get nails done .. Michelle and new owner Lauren are super friendly and highly skilled . Each time I get my nails done there , I'm always 150 % happy with their services. Highly recommended!!!! Thank you ladies !!

  • *****

    Today I walked into the salon for a mani and pedi, the new design for the shop was great and nicer than before. The stuff is nice and the manicurist did a very good job on my nails. Since they are on soft opening, I received 15% discount on my services which was really awesome!!!! Will definitely come back!

  • *****

    Great neighborhood place. Cute, clean feel. I got a manicure and called about an hour in advance of coming in. Thanks and will return!

  • *****

    So glad we found this place. Really cozy atmosphere and comfy chairs. Much better than a typical salon. My nails came out perfect and when my special friend smudged her nails, they fixed it without hesitating. Amazing service! We will definitely be back.

  • *****

    New owner Lauren just purchased this location. She has the same team that was with Juicy Nails. Very clean and this now has more of a mid century feeling. Prices are similar to the lady's owner. Love being able to pamper myself in my neighborhood.

  • *****

    Called at 4 and got an appointment for the next hour! They were super friendly and did a great job. Plus the decor was so cute and trendy!

  • *****

    perfect! Close and convenient. everybody is sweet and talented and the space is so chic and adorable. new go-to spot :)

  • *****

    This is now my go to place for nails! The staff are super friendly and they really make you feel at home. I feel so pampered every time i visit. I like that they offer drinks and really go out of their way to make me feel like a VIP. Will definitely be back!

  • *****

    Went to San Francisco for a weekend trip but didn't have a chance to get my nails done before I left Orange County so I decided to find a place in SF. Walked into Tint and thought it was such a cute, charming place. I was seated right away and they offered me water, tea and candies. Everything looked nice and clean. The prices were reasonable, not much more than what I pay in Orange County. Compared to a lot of other nail salons I've been to, the staff skills and service were on par. I loved how my nails turned out and I received so many compliments after. It was such a great relaxing experience that I plan to come back on my next visit. Thank you Tint!

  • *****

    Lauren and her team did an excellent job on my nails. I even smudged my toes and she reapplied the polish for me. Awesome service, comfortable and cozy.

  • *****

    Amazing service! The ladies there were very sweet. The manicure was relatively quick, and definitely painless. They have a great selection of designs to choose from, and only costs $3 per nail.

    Their space is also really cute, well designed and very clean. Looking forward to coming back!

  • *****

    I am SO happy that Tint opened up across the street from my apartment. Not only is it incredibly convenient for me, but they honestly do an incredible job. The two times I've been there, I walked out thinking it was one of the best manicures I've ever had. They are super thorough and take really good care of you from start to finish. I love how many polish colors they have to choose from (they have a ton of gel colors as well). They also offer pretty intricate nail designs.

    The vibe in the salon is super cozy, yet modern. They did a really good job balancing the clean/modern look with the warm/inviting atmosphere the salon. The women who work there are really talented and friendly. Unlike many other salons in the area, they engage with you and are easy to talk to. My I got a gel manicure the first time, and it lasted so long! My current manicure is not gel, but they did such a good job, I'm sure this will last a long time as well.

    Their prices are super reasonable and I am also going to start going to them for waxing. The only thing that would make this place better would be massage chairs. Treat yourself to a mani pedi and check out Tint!
