Joy, the owner of Nailz + Beauty, is one of the best nail technicians/waxers that I've ever been to. I recently got a pedicure with callous treatment, and after a rough winter, my feet look reborn. The color is beautiful too. The Nailz space is intimate and calming. I've also had my eyebrows waxed by Joy before, and she did a fabulous job shaping my brows. Joy is also a JOY to chat with. She remembers so many details from past conversations, and she's really just a delight. Booking online is easy too! Please go see Joy and support a local, woman-owned business.

I had such a wonderful waxing experience . Nallely made me feel welcomed and had a lovely ambience environment. Throughout our session she would check in on me and ask me if the wax was a good temp. I hadn’t even noticed that she had put it on. Definitely will be coming back!

I visited Nailz + Beauty for the first time today and had a manicure with Aberli. She was very nice and professional and gave me a lot of tips on nail care. I walked in without a clear picture of how I wanted me nails to look and she walked me through all the colors and the options for my manicure + 5 min nail art. Overall, I loved the experience, my nails look great, and I will be back soon!!

If you are looking for a new place to get your nails done, look no further! This salon is absolutely spotless and they offer professional services at a great value. Krystal was wonderful - I got a pedicure that I really needed after a salon I went to damaged my toes badly. She was very gentle and got everything fixed up and looking great. Plus I really like how the owner has very clear-cut and well-communicated policies written on the website and sent via email prior to the appointment. I will definitely be returning for another service!

Since moving to Durham in 2017, I’ve searched all over to find the ideal nail salon. It wasn’t until I booked an appointment at Nailz that I found exactly what I’d been looking for, which exceeded my expectations. Nailz is a Black-owned business that is beyond professional. Joy, the owner, is courteous and goes out of her way to ensure her clients are 100% satisfied with her services. If you’re looking for quality service in a relaxing and professional environment, look no further than Nailz!

Nailz is absolutely amazing! Definitely at 10/10! Not only is the service top tier, but the building is very clean! Nailz is a very calming and welcoming environment! Very professional establishment! I've had the pleasure of being able to experience not only Joy (the owner), but also Aberli (nail tech) and Tionne (massage specialist) ! All of them are amazing and are going to go above and beyond to make sure your services are top tier! I love coming here and highly recommend! You will not want to go anywhere else after experiencing Nailz!

I’m soooo happy I found this salon. I’ve never loved a manicure more! Joy was so sweet and did an absolutely amazing job. She was meticulous about the shaping of my nails and gave me the exact length and shape I asked for. She made my Gel-X extensions look so natural. I will definitely return to this salon for future manicures, I’m already looking forward to it.

Found this place through googling. I love that she uses less toxic polishes. Probably one of the best nail experinces I have had so far. A plus that it's black owned. I will be returning for sure, for my nails and other services!!! it's appointment only, and can easily be made online or by phone.

I booked a massage with Tione and I couldn't have been happier with it! The time slots available worked perfectly with my schedule, Tione was friendly, professional and talked me through the process. Honestly, I haven't had a better massage anywhere else. She was amazing!

I found this salon on instagram and after following them for about a month I made an appointment with Joy and have been going ever since. The service is awesome, very clean, and professional. I look forward to every appointment. I highly recommend Nailz!

I had my wax done by Joy. She was very patient with me. She took gentle care of me as well. She took her time with me and didn't rush through the waxing process just to get me in and out the door. She was very diligent with her work. I can't wait to go back and get my pedicure next!

Joy was such a pleasure to work with! The salon is very clean, and she takes all of the necessary precautions to make sure all customers abide by health and safety regulations. She did a phenomenal job on my henna eyebrows and soft gel nails. She is prompt with appointments, and is very creative with nail designs.

My experience with Joy was wonderful. She was professional and took the time to make sure my nails look great (as I don't get my nails done often). Joy's has great attention to detail and I am very pleased with how my nails turned out! I would recommend Nailz to everyone.

I have been going to Nailz for almost a year now. Joy is amazing at what she does and is really patient. I always leave satisfied! I always get the Gel-X set which leaves my nails healthy and I always get compliments on my nails! I am looking to someday invest in the skincare services they provide as well (facials, etc.). My last visit was 08/07/2020 and the salon was clean as always. I highly recommend Nailz!

This was my first time and it was truly an experience! Joy did an amazing job on my nails. I went in knowing what I wanted but she went above and beyond. At no point did I feel uncomfortable or concerned about her cleanliness. As soon as you walk in you know she sanitized her work area and the space in general was super clean! You can definitely tell she cares about her customers.

I had a really great experience with Joy! She was ready for me when I showed up, unlike some places where you have to wait despite having an appointment. She's gone to extra measures to keep her customers safe during COVID, so I was able to relax and be comfortable when I went in. She was friendly, professional, and clearly very experienced. I highly recommend her salon--I'll be heading back to try out some of her other services very soon.
