This place is a jem! Lulu is the one person I will ever let touch my eyebrows, she is really the BEST! She will treat you like a princess! She will take her time and make sure you leave looking like a model. Lulu is a perfectionist and will make sure you have a 5 star experience. They do an amazing job with nails too! I can't go to any other place because of how good the service is here. Book an appointment ASAP!
I went during the grand opening weekend and got my Manicured / Pedicure done. The worker was great in massaging my leg. I felt very relaxed. One of the girl added the design to my toe nail which I never had done before. It was great. My feet felt decorated. ^_^
They are all very friendly, very clean, and a good location. the guy that did my nails was really sweet and the staff offered me tea and fruit. they are all genuine and welcoming!
I started coming to 349 salon because the very nice gentleman there Vincent is a professional at taking care of your nail care . He was my manicurist at Image Perfection for about three years and for some reason he had to leave .When I find somone that knows what they are doing I will follow them wherever they go . Burlingame is not that far from San Bruno. He does a GREAT PINK AND WHITE GEL LOVE LOVE IT.The pedi was great they rubbed hot stones on my feet and calfs OMG it was great . And Lou she gives a great message . They are all very nice . The place and hot tea is so relaxing.I make my returning appt. every two weeks .
Under new management so disregard old review about the bad polish job. . .
Vincent! I finally found you! He was my go to guy at Image Perfection in San Bruno. He was/is the only reason I continued to go there. Now that he is at 349, soon to be Maite Nails, I highly recommend this new salon. Vincent for the nails and Lou for the brows! Two thumbs way way up!
My daughter (8yo) got a little pedicure there and they gave her a great price and treated her as a full sized customer. . . awesome.
I love your new home Vincent, I'll follow you anywhere.
Formerly Elite or Someting. At 349 Californinia drive, you will find the guy you're looking for.. Vincent formerly I.M. in san bruno. Also Lu is there.
tomorrrow is their official grand opening..and Chinese New year ..so do as I'm doing. starting off my Valentine's day with a pedi surprise for my husband & me! have a great one all!
Like some others I had discovered Vincent when he was at Image Perfection, near my home. I had never had a pink and white gel treatment before- which many manicurists can not do- and it was the first time I had no reservations at all about the job done on my nails. Vincent found it necessary to leave that shop and moved to 349 California St. (now Maite Nail Spa) in Burlingame..
Not only does Vincent pay attention to what you want, he is really invested in his work and seems like the artist I believe he is as he carefully inspects his work at every step. Try him; you'll like him!
I just love this place. They are very friendly. I used to go to another place in Burlingame, after a horrible incident, i had been looking for another place to go to. I'm so glad i found this place! I just had my first experience with gel nail, i was a little worried at first, but Vincent, did a great job! i love my nails! and always enjoy the relaxing pedicure there.
Lu, the owner knows her stuff - I had to go in for an extension on my big toe nail and she made it look as if it was my own! It's a small, neighborhood salon for your pedi/mani needs at an affordable price - $20 pedicure special mon to wed.
This place is special--a combination of genuine friendliness and a unique variety of services.
They also offer regular massage and massage with "hot stones" and oil.
I found Maite Nails by chance when I was trying to find out where my regular manicurist went after leaving another place I used to go to (Thanks Yelpers!). That was about 8 months ago and I and have been coming here ever since. The staff is very friendly, Lu does great work and is very attentive to what you want. I always leave happy with my nails!
This was by far the best facial experience, my skin looks so great. I have gotten many facials but I can't believe how much better my skin looks. The price was very reasonable as well. My friend recommended Lu to me after I complimented her on her glowing skin. I definitely am a return customer.
We all know that it's easy to find an inexpensive and decent nail place up in SF. But an inexpensive and decent place on the peninsula? That's a hard ticket to fill. That's why I was thrilled to find Maite in darling downtown Burlingame.
Maite has a great promotion Monday-Wednesday for a $20 pedi. Any other time, a pedi is a reasonable $25. Yes, it's more than most of the pedis in the city but, hey, you take what you can get. It's the peninsula; what do you expect?
The staff was very friendly. Lu, who seemed to be the owner or manager, was great. She was extremely welcoming. Betty took care of my pedi, and she was so nice about my less-than-lovely feet. She spent an hour making my feet presentable, and she was incredibly thorough and sweet. I definitely felt as if I got my money's worth.
Maite is absolutely my new go-to nail place on the peninsula!
I came here after reading the yelp reviews. At first, I was really surprise at the decor of the place - it's really rare to walk into a nail salon that does gel and acrylic nails and not smelling like strong chemicals.
Lyn helped me with my nails. I called in making an appointment to do gel nails, but I decided it would take too long and decided to go with a reg manicure instead. Lyn intro me to silk nails and SHE IS GOOD! She's super detailed - hand filing each nail and slowly gluing on each piece of silk and explaining to me what she's doing and the process. Overall, she took about 2 hours to finish the nails - but that's because she hand filed and painted each nail. I've had it for 3 weeks now, and even thought the silk names have grown out now, but it's so thin!!!! even when i pain a coat over it, it still looks so nature you can't tell I have fake nails on!
However, if you're in a rush, they might not be the best place to go to - but if you want really REALLY good nails (especially Lyn's silk nails) - go here!
Love this place - it's new and they are really trying hard!
They do quick, high quality work and you can't beat their $20 pedicure and $10 brow was special (Mon - Wed).
Found out about this place on Yelp and saw the $20 special so we decided to try this place out. I'm really glad I did.
The ladies here were all really friendly, especially Lu. We were greeted right when we entered the nail salon. When we sat down on the massage chairs, we were asked if we wanted any water or tea. The chair was comfortable but the massage part wasn't great. The chair only vibrates, which doesn't do much for my back.
The staff takes their time with your nails and makes sure you're comfortable and relaxed. I got a deluxe pedicure ($30 instead of $35) and a manicure, everything for $45. My girlfriend got a pink and white gel full set ($45), and her nails came out really nice and natural looking.
Will definitely go back one of these days.
These ladies are awesome!!! This is my weekly indulgence, I get the mani/pedi with gel overlays, which might I add is the BEST idea ever. They're like acrylics without having to tear up your real nails! I usually go on a Sunday afternoon and there's never a wait, but they're always busy. They are a well-oiled machine, tag teaming customers to make sure everyone is being tended to. I have also heard they do great facials and can't wait to get one the next time I'm in there! Lu, the owner is so friendly, she is constantly checking in on how you are doing while the other ladies work their mani/pedi magic. I highly recommend Maite for your mani/pedi and at $35 for the whole thing, it's a bargain for the Peninsula!
I was looking on yelp and found Maite and decided to check them out thanks to you yelpers I have found my nail salon :) I go to Maite to get my nails done biweekly religiously and I have never NEVER broken a nail, more I just get an overlay on my natural nails I will never go any where else. I bring my 4 year old daughter here 80% of the time I go and everyone is soooooo inviting their faces light up when we come and its just so wonderful. I recommend Maite too everyone, Best nail salon!
AMAZING. I've been to so many places around the Bay Area and Maite Nail & Skin Spa is the BEST. Monday thru Wednesdays they have $20 pedicures, which is a great deal (especially in the Peninsula). Bety did my nails and she did a wonderful job. Two weeks later and my toes still look awesome. The $20 pedi includes a hot stone massage, which surprised me cause I assumed the $20 pedi only included the pedi basics- but hey, I'm not complaining! My only gripe with the place is that their selection of nail colors is not the greatest or the most updated. But all the ladies at Maite are very friendly, the place is clean and does not have that overwhelming nail salon smell...I'll definitely be back soon!
Nice place , one of my girl friend tell me about this place. After I try their pedi I decide to get my medi done too. Only $35 for medi&pedi very reasonable price and it come with little hot stone massage no extra charge ! The owner Lu are very friendly, end out I bought 2 gift cards for my friends, next time I am going to try thier gel nails service.
This place was great! They took an hour and a half on my feet and hands. The hot stones were lovely and the staff was very nice. One of the guys there entertained us by telling jokes and funny stories. Overall a great time and a pretty result! I highly recommend
My go to place for a great mani, pedi, and eyebrow waxing! Fon is the eyebrow waxing queen. She is very detailed and thorough. The prices are great and best of all, customer service is excellent!
I was looking for a reasonable place for a manicure/pedicure when I found this nail salon. I walked in and noticed it is very clean. Cindy and Kim did my manicure and pedicure respectively, and they did a great job! I gave this place only 4 stars because I haven't tried all their services but I will definitely be back!
I was in the area and in desperate need of a pedicure. My first thought after finding a coveted parking spot was "do I have enough coins for the meter?" so make sure you have some change to feed the hungry meter.
I was greeted with a smile, which is always nice, especially as a walk-in. The lady who did my pedicure (I don't know her name) was very nice and accommodating. She was quick yet did a great job. The massage module on the chair isn't the best but I wasnt there for a chair massage.
I paid a little more here than at the salon I usually go to but it was worth it.
I come here for a simple mani/pedi. For the price, I'm very satisfied by their services. It's not a super glamourous spa and I wish it didn't smell so strong of chemicals.
After searching around for an affordable nail salon that does a great job, I can't believe it took me this long to find this place considering I live within walking distance. The salon isn't anything fancy, but they do have the spa chairs and they are CLEAN. They are meticulous and very accommodating. I have been back twice since my first visit in March. I'd get in there more if I didn't travel so much for work. But when I have the time to spare, I definitely plan on going back.
I got a distressed call from Maite after this review offering a refund. That alone changed my mind (I refused the refund). it wasn't as bad. Maybe a 3.5 star?
I came in for a European facial not nails. And did notice there were lots of happy customers getting fancy nails done. I had a trubates coupon for a European facial though and asked for a good pore extraction. Maite's English was not good and offered me services I didn't ask for. I ended up not getting the pore cleaning but $25 peel (which i said no to but she thought I said yes) plus an eyebrow wax. And this led to a peeling nose w/ flakes falling off while out at dinner while sporting an arched brow which I usually keep straight and natural.
But it's been a few days now I'd say I got a nice facial and eyebrow is growing out while Maite was accomodating & nice. I would say the prices are fair... And to change my mind more after the peeling my skin looks pretty good!
One note tho watch out for the Burlingame parking police. My 1hr facial took 2hrs from the extra services that I went 10 mins over the meter. A $40 parking ticket.
I love this nail salon they do a fabulous job and are super sterile. They have specials on pedi some days, which is great. They do waxing and facials.
Having just moved to Burlingame, I searched Yelp for a nail salon and found this wonderful place! The $20 pedicure was just perfect...even included a hot stone leg massage. Really friendly service. I'm so happy to have found this place!
Stopped by here on a whim and glad I did. Jenny did my mani/pedi and she was great. She's meticulous and did an awesome job on my pedicure. I ended up getting gel again for my nails and they have a ton of colors here. Even though they were busy I didn't feel rushed at all and Jenny took her time doing a good job. Mon-Wed the pedicure is $20 which is pretty good. Only gripes are that they soak your nail in a bowl of acetone to take off the polish (some better places use foil) and the spa chairs are kind of sucky.
This is the best nail salon ive been to on years! I strongly recommend getting pedi/mani's here. First and most important they are clean, sanitary, extremely friendly, and well priced. They offer complimentary water and tea. The massage is wonderful. The ladies that work there have very strong manicuring skills and are talented. Seriously, the best. i fell asleep, was super comfy, and the staff was great!
So I went back to Maite Tuesday morning and they had just read my review and were very apologetic :) . Betty took time to fix my nails, not taking any short cuts. Lu also said she'd do the next fill at no charge! This business really understands customer service and I think 7/11/11 was just an off day for them and not their normal level of service / professionalism.
I am sort of thankful I got the parking ticket because it pushed me to go back in to the salon and give them a chance to repair my nails and my view on their services. Without the ticket I would have just been upset about the chipping nails and never gone back to them.
Thanks Lu. Thanks Betty. I'll see you in 2 weeks :)
I love this place! Everyone is so sweet here! They always do a nice job! And I never have trouble getting an appointment. Try their "gel" polish...?It's 10 bucks extra, but it drys really fast and lasts longer!! ;-)
This salon experience has set the bar for me. Gentle, effective, competent, very fine people and the environment isvodor free and relaxing. Jenny & Bety were warm-hearted, genuinely customer-centric, and the price (Monday-Wednesday) is a gift I'll be giving myself regularly.
I found this nail salon on Yelp with the $20 deal on a pedicure and it was totally worth the $20. It's clean and they have a good selection of colors. For $20 you get your regular pedicure and hot stone. It's clean and right when you walk in the front door you are greeted with an energetic hello. The have nice soothing music and massage chairs. Everyone was super nice and not pushing other products on you. I would definitely go back.
Best Mani/Pedi I have had in forever! I wish they were in San Diego because they would be my spot! Loved her removal and application of my gel nails too.
Have you noticed that a really good pedi has a rhythm to it. Being a musical person, I notice this. There's pacing, timing, tempo, rest, dynamics, noise, silence... you know, all the elements of music. This last pedicure I had lacked all the musical elements of a good pedicure. It just wasn't good. Granted, the polish job was acceptable, but the overall experience, including the condition of the soles of my feet, was not up to par what I'm used to from here.
wow, the best pedicure i've had in the bay area in a long time. so thorough!
By far, this place is one of the cheaper facial salons I've been to.
I was a bit worried because after all, you don't want just ANYONE working on your face or body. They don't have a variety of services as other places but that can be just as good.
The service was great. I think I'll be heading back here again soon.
The only thing is parking. It's better to park in the public lot on the other side of the street, across from Sur La Table.
I had Betty to do my nail, pedicure and manicure with french....she really considers how we can do and she suggested me a lot of things. She is also really gentle and sweet and she provided me great suggestions. The atmosphere in the store is so friendly and every customers seemed really like the salon.
I really like it and will definitely go back there. Betty is awesome!
I LOVE this place! My co-worker suggested this place since I needed to get my nails done for my sisters wedding and I've already gone back! I never get my nails done (as a side note) but I like the look of my clean nails now. The people are very friendly and I like the service I get here.
Maite is the best. I have been getting my nails done here almost 2 years now. Just recently I tried out Shellack on my nails... I LOVED IT! polish stays on about two weeks and my nails stay strong and healthy. I've had friends who have tried Shellack at other nail salons and said it ruined there nails, not here! But I am all about my white and pink gels, and they are perfectionists, and I am really picky. They give great pedicures with hot stones, my boyfriend is coming with me today! We both also get our eyebrows done. I always feel pampered and amazing when I leave. Prices are competitive and salon is clean and breathable (no strong polish odor)
Try MAITE it's awesome!!
I just got a gift certificate for my birthday! Can't wait to come back :)
Beautiful nail work, fantastic massages, what more could you ask for!! The service was so friendly and welcoming. I had gellex nailpolish done, designs on my toenails, and the best hot stone massage (or any massage for that matter!) anyone could ask for. I highly recommend treating yourself to an afternoon at Maite!
I walked in an was greeted right away and came for a mani-pedi. The two people who did my mani-pedi were fabulous! The hot stone massage with the pedicure was awesome.
They treated me with care and respect. I wish there were more colors, but that's about it. I will definitely come here again!
Consistently a pleasant experience. My nails always look nice, staff is super accommodating and really welcoming. Great local nail salon.
they did a great job, wax and nails.. thanks :)
I was very happy with maite. today was my first time coming here and i got a male technician. usually this scares me, because i always find that they are a bit more rough with my cuticles or don't paint them as neat as they should. however, i was really pleased with the results! great service all around - they offer you tea or water immediately when you sit down.
do expect to be here a while though... mani/pedi took almost 2 hours! they really took their time, which can be a good or bad thing. mani pedi was $35.
almost one week later: im impressed! my nails are holding up well.
I love Maite! Their gelish is the best, and is done expertly by all their manicurists, especially Betty (hi Betty!). If you don't actively try to peel it, the gelish lasts over two weeks, and it's shiny and flawless the whole time. I never go anywhere else now. Thanks, Maite!
My friend, her mom, and I came here for pedicures and it was a great experience. It was super laid back (then again it was a Monday afternoon) and they were very accommodating. All three of us went in without appointments (we called while we were on our way) and we were seating in their comfy chairs right away. Usually I am not too excited for manis/pedis because the places stink - but there weren't any strong smells at all. Also, the ladies were super detail oriented and quick (not so quick they rushed). Awesome job and I'm super pleased. I loved the hot stone massage too! At one point, while they were placing my foot into the UV light, it messed up the polish but they redid it for me on the spot. I will definitely be back - plus there's a $5 for $10 deal!
Came here a while back with my friend Carleen W. My nails were extremely immaculate at the end of my experience here. Excellent service with free tea/water and a decent color selection.
It was a VERY long manicure/pedicure but I didn't mind since I had good company. If you're in a hurry I'd recommend letting them know. I was pleasantly surprised by my first trip here and I'll have to come back next time I'm in the area.
I'm sssooo happy I live near this place! I just wish I discovered them a lot sooner. Read a lot of the other reviews, got curious about all the positive feedback and a friend and I decided to treat oursevles to mani/pedi last week. I'm so glad we did!
The owners are really friendly and funny (and not overly chatty in an annoying way), they have a lot of nail color choices, they seemed very meticulous about sanitation and I liked that the lady explained what she was doing as she worked on me (not like those places where they have a scowl on their face and speak gibberish while they work on your fingers and toes).
The only thing I didn't like was that they took really long, but that's probably because I tend to get impatient and restless easily.
If you decide to go, look for Lu. She's the owner and she's super nice!
When I visited The Bay recently, my friend wanted to check out Maite since it was close to her place. I had no objections since getting a pedicure after a plane ride sounds so good.
I was very impressed with the service. Bety did a fantastic job on my pedicure and I was in love with the hot stone massage she threw in. Everyone at the shop, especially Lu and her husband are so friendly and make you feel right at home. Unlike many nail spas I've frequented in Seattle, they did not once have any side conversations or pressure you to add any services.
After my friend and I had our pedicure, Lu mentioned to us that they had a special on gel nails. My friend and I never had tried it so we decided to come back early the next day and I'm now a new convert of gel nails. I don't remember the name of the lady that did my nails but she did a great job. It's been two weeks since I had them done and my nails still look like they were freshly polished.
If I ever come back for a visit, I definitely will make a stop here.
again, Betty is the best for gel nails. I've had other technicians at Maite and Betty is by FAR the best. trust me!
This is my new go-to nail place! I tried several places before finding this gem - it's clean, great location, love the staff, good selection of colors, easy to get an appointment, everyone is attentive and friendly and a good value - $25 for a pedi.
The best nail place on the Peninsula! I live in Belmont and there are plenty of places closer to me, but I've been coming to Maite for about a year now and I don't want to go anywhere else! The reasons? I usually get my nails done by Betty, who is a total pro and makes you feel comfortable. Lu the owner is incredibly welcoming and sweet. I love their Gelish, and I try to get it as much as I can because it lasts for weeks. It's an extra $10 but it's worth it! Maite is always clean, and I know that they will take care of me whenever I come. I've read some of the reviews that say they are expensive but trust me, for the service, results, and cleanliness, it is very reasonable. Hint: try to come before 1 or 2 if you can, it gets packed in the afternoons!
found out about maite through trubates.com and decided to purchase a voucher for a brazilian bikini wax. making an appt was as easy as picking up the phone.
the aesthetician greeted me warmly, with a smile, and showed me to the waxing room. she used thicker, sensitive wax which was a lot less painful than regular wax. her technique was pretty good, as she used short, quick motions when pulling the wax strips off my skin, so it was not too painful. toward the end, she put powder on the affected area to let the skin cool a few minutes, then proceeded to finish up the remaining hairs with tweezers. when she was done, she used a warm towel to clean me off (which was really nice, i don't usually get the warm towel service), and put some more powder on the skin to let it cool.
she had a very gentle touch, and is clearly someone who has done this before and does it well. my only minor comment is that i had some more hairs that had to be manually tweezed when i got home, a bit more than expected after a brazilian wax. but overall, a job well done with good technique and excellent customer service.
I went to Maite for the first time for an eyebrow wax and was very happy with the results! Everyone was very nice in the salon and greeted with me a smile. Lu was super nice and did a wonderful job! I will definitely be coming back for more waxing and other services.
Came here for gel manicure and spa pedicure. $35 for mani+pedi, $5 to remove previous gels, $10 for new gels. I used the yelp coupon so came out to $40.
Loved my gel manicure, got sparkly ones and they are so cute.
At first, I wasn't too happy with my pedicure, I thought she didn't get as close to the cuticle as I wanted, also wasn't as clean as I liked, but so far it's lasted well, got it done Thurs, still looking great on Monday. Would have gotten 5 stars if the pedi was done with more care.
I came here last week after buying their yelp deal and I am so glad that I did! The man at the front desk is beyond sweet and he really wants to make sure that his customers are satisfied! I got Shellac nails done and they are still in great condition! I will definitely be back again!
Best pedicure ever! Wonderful, friendly service! Very clean and well maintained. Hot stone massage on lower legs was fantastic. They did a beautiful job on cutting nails and french tips. Highly recommended
Love it! My girlfriend and i work in the neighborhood; we love to go and get our nails done on our lunch break. Love the mani-pedis, and the gels are great!
Not always the cheapest deal in town, but they are super sweet and do a nice job :)
Maite Nail Salon is amazing!!
I am a very picky person and quite critical when it comes to my nails. I've been to a lot of nail places and this is by far the best! Not only are Betty and Lou (spelling?) experts at what they do (cleaning, shaping, & nail polish application are on point!!) but customer service is also pretty awesome. Basically, the place is neat, tools are clean, and everyone is super friendly!! Overall, a wonderful place and the only nail salon I will ever go to for my mani/pedi needs.
The paint lasts forever!! I found the place by using yelp, and have been back a second time and found the staff to be very nice. The second time my chair massage was broken, but they said they had a new one on order. I had made appointments and the second time they were running about 20 minutes behind but brought me tea while I waited. The place is very clean and the equipment is sterilized.
We made appointnents. Arrived a few minutes early and were friendly greated. The Pedi was great. The massage could not really even be felt in the spa chairs but they let us know they have already ordered new chairs. In fact they are arriving this week. Parking is a bit of a problem, but it us worth it. I believe this will be my new favorite salon for Pedi
Just went here for a mani-pedi combo after purchasing a yelp deal. Service was excellent - was offered tea/water, magazines etc. They gave a good pedicure and a manicure and the whole atmosphere was very pleasant and relaxing.
The reason for 4 stars and not 5 - the lady cut my finger (hand) slightly when cleaning my nails and did not take the cracked skin out of the bottom of my feet completely.
All in all a very pleasant experience, will definitely be back.
Pros: Great customer service, everyone is very accommodating and friendly.They always offer me water or tea when I arrive and they are on time with my appointments. The pedicure is good, meticulous polish application and the pedicure takes about 20-25 minutes. They take credit cards for the tip as well which is a +. They have brand new pedicure chairs which is a bonus. Although the space is small, The salon appears clean and hygienic which is always my #1 priority with nail salons because I am so paranoid about nail infections or worse !
Cons: Even though they use hot stones, the Massage and exfoliating scrub should last longer. Parking in Burlingame is all metered so bring some change since these meters don't take credit cards- since Maite is open 7 days a week, you could go on Sunday to avoid the meters. They don't have any foot nail dryers so you'd better bring flip flops.
I am happy with this salon for my pedicures and the price is reasonable given the service. Only complaint compared to other spas in the area, they could spend a little more time with the foot massage, that's always my favorite part of a pedicure ! I'd recommend this little spot for a spot on pedicure.
LOVE their manicure! They do the best job. Their french manicure lasts for weeks without rubbing off or fading! The ladies are super friendly, love the hot stones at the end of the pedicure. I feel like they could do a bit more for the pedicure but for the price - is totally worth it!
Hands down best nail salon EVER!!
Lu and her staff are just so friendly and accommodating and I love that if they don't have time they will just tell you versus making you pick a color and then sit there for 30 min. They are so detailed on both mani's and pedi's and even just the regular mani lasts for a week sometimes for me. They prices for gel are reasonable and $10 less than what it is in the city. Amazing place, I don't go anywhere else!
betty is really good! only giving 4 stars though because they charge you $5 to take the shellac off, while other places are free!
very reasonable prices. very friendly people! It really is a nice local place. There could have been a bigger nail polish selection, but it wasn't bad. The best part was this lovely surprise hot stone massage! That was worth it all!
Very friendly staff, and made sure that my nails looked flawless. The manager went out the door a couple times to put coins in my meter, which really impressed me.
Betty is just amazing! She is so sweet & does just great work. She's very thorough with her work. I spent about an hour and a half getting my Mani/pedi done by her. I love how she evenly shapes my nails! She did a great job with my polish too ( check out my orange & green nails, pic posted )
Favorite Nail Salon!!
I stumbled across Maite Nail Salon on Yelp when we were around the area and had some time to get our nails done. I've tried several nail salons in the Peninsula area with the help of some local deals. However, I have to say that this is BY FAR the nicest, sweetest, down to earth nail salon I've been to. Plus, they do an awesome job!! My mom was even impressed at how nice they were and what a good job they did that she asked me to write a review (even though I was already going to).
I ended up getting a Shellac manicure ($25) and regular pedicure ($25). Together it was $45 (discounted). Plus I used the Yelp! offer which was a bonus. My mom got a Shellac French Manicure and it also turned out very nice!
No more looking for deals/new nail salons....I've found my go to place!
Just a little update
I've been back and I still love it! My first shellac/gel manicure lasted three weeks and it even last through rock climbing (I was sure that would've been the end of it). I did the mani pedi this time (with another shellac/gel) and I loved it as usual. I'm thinking about moving to this area after my internship and if I do I'll keep coming back. I will miss this place when I leave in October
This is the best nail salon ever! Great people, service, price and awesome color selection!!! Highly recommend!!
Came in and was treated like royalty. This nail shop has nice massage chairs, great color selection, and gentle nail technicians. When I came in they were so pleasant. The staff was so concerned to make sure that I had paid enough to the parking meter (so thoughtful), and also offered me a cup of tea.
I am very pleased with the quality of my pedicure and the hot stone massage was amazing. For the price and also for the quality of service I think this place gets a 5/5. Definitely coming back for a shellac manicure next time!
Love Love Love this place! I've been going here for about a year now and couldn't be any happier. Everyone is very friendly and I always walk out a happy customer :). Its clean and the they recently got new massage chairs for your manis! I def recommend trying the gel manicure. They last long and look great for weeks :)
Everyone here is so friendly & the place is clean & bright. They always have space & I've hardly ever seen anyone wait more than a few minutes for a chair. My mani & pedi's are always done very well, but I like seeing Betty the best! :)
Very friendly place. Local and convenient . Excellent staff. They have massage chairs. Two people work on your hands and feet at the same time. Excellent results. Clean. Pretty much as good as it gets. Could upgrade massage chairs, and massage feet and hands better. Use better creams ect. Honestly, for the end results it's a five star.
Finally I have found my go to, one stop shop nail salon! I grew up in Bgame and have been to most all of the salons. Im between here and So Cal a lot and now have my go to places on both sides of the state. The polish lasts long, they have many colors (i love bright pink!) staff is amazingly friendly. They also do wonderful eyebrow waxing. I always get compliments on them. For fingernailsn, I 100% reccomend getting Shellec, it lasts one month, no chipping and glossy beautiful color. This place is everything one can ask for in a salon.
When you find a good nail place, you don't want to give up the name, so they will always have space for you...but since bad places are so bad, I decided to let people know what I think of Maite.
They do gel nails well. They are personable and the prices are reasonable. Very sweet people.
I just found a new place to get my pedis:) The staff are very friendly and the salon is very clean. The nail technician (who is a gentleman) did a great job, actually one of better pedicures I gotten from other salons. I really enjoyed the hot stone massage. It was a nice touch to your pedicure experience. Also, the Yelp deal is an awesome deal too!
Great place. Very nice beauticians, very attentive and sweet. Offered me hot tea :) treated me like a princess and did a great job on my nails.
This place is awesome - all around. My co-worked and I found them on Yelp, saw they had a coupon and decided to try them out.
We were not disappointed! It was clean, everyone was nice, they offer the BEST tea and they really spend time on your paws. I haven't had anyone pay so much attention to my cuticles in forever! They mostly have OPI and Essie polish. I've gotten both a regular mani/pedi and the gel mani. Both times didn't disapoint.
The ONLY downfall is parking. If you're going on a Friday after work expect to hike a block...or two.
Pricing is also great for location!
Probably one of the better nail salons I have been to! Came here about 3 weeks ago to get a mani/pedi. My french pedi is still in tact! It looks as if I just got it yesterday =) I will definitely be back to this place again.
I love this place. Even when they are busy they don't rush your mani/pedi. They really take time with you to make sure you are happy before you leave. The salon is immaculate, the people are friendly, espeically Lu, reasonable prices and the tea is GREAT! It has a spa feeling instead of a nail salon.
really love this place! doesnt have the fancy decor, but the service and the quality is excellent. there is always someone answering the phone, too. Will def. return. Oh - price is very fair! pedi & mani for $35!!!
Great service! Super nice and very clean space. I had a gel manicure an regular pedicure. Took about 1 1/2 hours. They were careful and very detailed with their job! I highly recommend this place.
I love Maite Nail & Skin Spa! From the moment you walk in you can expect awesome service. Lou and the rest of her team make you feel welcomed and comfortable. Not to mention their prices are competitive and their work is great. Betty does an perfect french manicure every time! I would recommend this to anyone in the area.
Im new to burlingame, from memphis. Im a hairdresser, so i know what a great salon should offer! This place has it!!! Great nail salon! They were nice and my gel manicure is awesome! I wanted something different and I'm obsessed with my new nail colors! I got an angled french with purple slanted for the tips and pink glitter on the nAil bed. I had a picture and Tammie made it happen!!! And I didn't have any change for the meter, so they gave me a quarter for parking! In and out in 1 hour, gel mani and pedi! It was awesome! I will def return!!!
Love this place!! Betty, Lu, and Lyn are great. Very welcoming and always take the time to give an outstanding mani/pedi.
I think I've found my go-to nail salon near work thanks to a co-worker's recommendation! I came back relaxed and rejuvenated after an hour's worth of simple and delightful pampering.
- Parking was convenient pre-12pm lunch rush (bring change for metered parking).
- Great hot jasmine tea as a complimentary offering.
- Amazing hot stone foot massage as part of the classic pedicure!
- Time and care put into each personalized service.
- Friendly, English-speaking (and understandable!) women.
- Bonus: free wi-fi (virtually unheard of at nail salons).
- Competitive pricing for an otherwise pricey Burlingame area ($25 for a classic pedicure) - check out the special Yelp deal also!
I came here with my cousin approx 30 minutes before closing. The owner (a man) was extremely friendly and welcoming. In no way did we feel rushed even though it was towards the end of the day. They were even patient and helpful while my cousin was having a hard time deciding on her nail color. I think they did a great job overall and they were very friendly.
Customer Service: 5/5
I would definitely come back!
Literally just has the best pedicure of my life.
I'm definitely not one for the fancy, upscale nail salon. In fact, I actually prefer small, mom-and-pop establishments, of the Asian variety. Why? Because you know you'll get a) great service, b) plus points if you become a regular, and c) more often than not, a complimentary cup of tea.
I've long frequented spots in the city, being a resident for 4+ years. I now live in the peninsula and have been religiously shuttling myself back and forth from San Francisco for my nail and hair removal needs. I have definitely been skeptical to try anywhere new. On a whim, and under a time crunch, I decided to try Maite Nail Salon. Thank God I did.
Walking distance, attentive staff - probably the most thorough wax and pedicure experience I have ever had - able to accommodate me on short notice (granted, it was mid-day Wednesday) - Maite has now become my go-to spot.
Many thanks for a wonderful and relaxing visit.
I decided to go to this place because of the $5 for $10 Yelp Deal, and I would definitely go back again! They squeezed me in on New Years Eve, and I got a shellac manicure for only $15 with the deal. Betty was amazing and my nails looks fantastic!
Very friendly with quick service and a nice paint job. I'll go back.
I got the gel manicure here. They were able to fit me in within 30 minutes of calling in. Even though i had to wait 15ish minutes, I thought they did a really good job. I got a ton of compliments! i'd definitely go back in the future =) Prepare to block out about an hour for your manicure. Also, it was my first time getting a gel manicure but it is pretty magical. It's still in perfect shape after 1.5 weeks. Read about it online though, there are some drawbacks (ie, exposure to UV light, certain chemicals in some brands. I didn't pay too much attention to the ingredients they used, but i'll take a closer look next time. )
I love how friendly everyone was during my visit. They offer tea or water to you while you are getting your services and all the staff were really nice. I would definitely go back.
Great place - love Lyn - always friendly staff willing to help with anything!
Love Love Love! Betty is my girl! She always does such a great job with my gel manis. Service here is always friendly and I look forward to my next session!
I treated my wife for a Mani/pedi for her birthday. While waiting, my wife and other patrons talked me into a pedicure. They did such a great job I've been going at least 1 a month.
Nice and friendly! I just wish the polish lasted a bit longer. Definitely recommend.
Loved this place!!! amazing customer service! they were all SO attentive to everything, down to how each nail turned out. Always offering me more water or tea, etc. The friendliest staff, great job done on my nails with the Gel Manicure, and good pricing!
Parking can be tricky but once you find a spot its not big deal!
FINALLY found my go to nail place! Definitely returning again and again!
i love this place lu is very sweet! so is lyn! and they both do an amazing job, i get non stop compliments on my nails! they always make you feel very comfortable. i wont go anywhere else
Had a deluxe pedicure here and the experience was a lot nicer than most others I can remember going to. The deluxe included a leg wrap that was soothing. My toes look nice and shiny.
I did go early in the morning on a weekday so I don't know what it's like when it's busy but I liked that they didn't rush me. Nina did my pedicure and she was super sweet. For me, Maite is a win especially since it's so close to where I live.
I really like this salon. It is clean, great prices, they always do their best to fit you in (important when you are a procrastinator like me), and the manicure/pedicure lasts longer than many salons. I will definitely be back!
My roommate and I were looking for a place to get a last minute manicure on an early Saturday morning. We walked into a few other places in Burlingame which had no appointments until later in the day and we randomly called to see if we could get in here. The answer was YES and it was wonderful!
I wasn't sure if we'd get rushed at all since we were very last minute but overall it was a great experience. I've never really been impressed by a manicure (my nails suck and polish comes off very easily) but honestly this was great. Really, really thorough job by Lu AND my nails are still holding onto the polish like a dream! Seriously, my manicures never last more than 2-3 days without chipping and I'm through day 4 and they still look awesome. (Update: it's been a week and they still are looking fab...this NEVER HAPPENS to me!)
Additionally, the polish selection was great and the price was right. This will definitely be my go-to manicure place from now on!
Update 2: Went again with my roommate and although I hadn't been in a month or so, we were both recognized by the staff. Mina did my nails this time and was super sweet and chatty. I kind of felt like she was my Asian grandma and of course, my nails look great!
Love this place! My nail polish stayed on forever without chipping! I got an OPI shellac and regular pedicure. I am really rough on my nails and the polish stood the test. The service was also very nice and friendly.
I will definitely go again!
This place is a little tricky to find. While it is in Burlingame, it is not on the main "strip" but rather, a few blocks off on California. Fret not, the additional walk is worth it.
I have only ever come here to get my eyebrows done (note to self: come for a manicure next time) and I have always enjoyed the service. The prices are very affordable (again, this is Burlingame we are talking about) and the gals are very friendly!
Bety is very quick but precise, no detail goes unnoticed, perfect nails in less than 30 mins, including dry time. :) Will return here for future manis.
Let me start by saying I love me a mani/pedi in a spa chair and have been enjoying them for over 20 years. I grew up in Southern California and had pretty high standards having lived in Newport Beach and Los Angeles. I originally came in here on a groupon and it worked because they won my business! They are attentive, detailed, sanitary, and accommodating. I've been introduced to gels through them on my nails and I absolutely love them (even though they are more money). I have also fallen in love with getting my eyebrows waxed and dyed which has totally changed my world because I don't have to use an eyebrow pencil anymore at all (yay!). I have also taken my daughters (ages 8 and 4 at the time) in and they have both had what are like "mini spa chair mani/pedi's" and they charge less which is nice. Of course, usually they ask if I want to upsale with a flower on their big toe for their them or some fancy design and I end up spending what a little more anyway so it all evens out. Overall, I would really recommend this salon and hope you might be open to their suggestions because they have been really great for me!
Great experience here - made an appointment and they were able to accommodate us as promised which I can't say has been my experience at most nail salons.
Massage chairs while you get your pedi, friendly employees - what more could a girl ask for! I would definitely return.
GREAT pedicures that don't chip. Massage chairs and all those other little extras that make it a lovely experience. Not super-cheap but not super-expensive either. And nice n' clean. You'll want to make an appt if possible. They can get busy. Ask for Bety, she's super-great. Or wait, don't, I want her all to myself!!
When I go to a nail place I judge how good it is based on the following criteria:
1. The staff doesn't try to upsell me services
2. The staff takes their time with my pedicure and doesn't try to rush me out the door
3. My pedicure lasts about a month
Maite meets all those criteria and more. I love that they incorporate a hot stone into their leg/foot massages! Great color selection for OPI (my favorite polish). The staff is super nice and always offers tea or water. I used to live around here but moved and still come back just to get my pedicure.
I love this nail salon, and always get my quick manicures and pedicures done here on lunch break. This salon is great for a basic service, but they are NOT a nail art place. However, it's excellent if you want a reasonably priced regular or gel manicure, and I highly recommend them for that purpose.
Wow! What an amazing experience here! Super friendly staff And an amazing gel mani and pedi. The staff is very careful about creating a beautiful nail shape and they were attentive to my requests! I will be a loyal client for sure!!!
Cute little place just off Broadway. Nothing super fancy, but they are fast and friendly. I was able to walk in which was surprising given its location. Wouldn't recommend for a spa day, but this is a good staple for when you need a quick mani/pedi.
Not your typical salon where you feel like the nail techs are talking crap about you in vietnamese while they smile and nod. My nail tech was quiet but I can appreciate her concentrating on working. The owner was great and her husband was hilarious! He was telling us a few jokes that gave us a good laugh. This place is clean and service was good. What more can you ask for?
My girl sent me a text saying that she wanted to pay for us to get our nails done, so of course I didn't argue. After work, she zoomed home, grabbed me and away we went to find Maite. Located right on the main strip in Burlingame, parking is easy - either across the street in the public lot or somewhere in the plentiful street parking. We found a place on the street a block away. They were ready for us when we walked in for our appointment which gave them immediate bonus points in my eyes. The kid had a mani and I had a pedi.
I don't know the name of the tech who worked on my daughter, but she was careful and meticulous about making sure everything was perfect about her French Manicure. It turned out beautiful and showed the quality of the careful workmanship.
Long was the first man to do my toes at a salon. Not only was he a pro, but he was tons of fun to talk to. 20 years old and makes a woman's toes look amazing? He won't have trouble finding girlfriends!!! Just look at the pictures of the artwork he did on my big toes. Gorgeous!
Will we be back? Of course, because as Long told me, Maite is the best! And I believe him.
This is the best nail salon on the peninsula. Lu (the owner) is always so friendly and does her best to fit you in. The enire team there is great, and super knowledgeable. You can tell that they all enjoy eachother and have been doing this for a very long time. You can't go wrong with anyone there. They take their time and don't rush through their pedicures. Also, hot stones are standard there. It is the perfect way to relax after work!
I've been going to Maite Nail Spa for a year and a half now since I moved back to Burlingame. The owner has always been so friendly, remembering my name after only one prior visit. I always go to Lynne for my pedicures and Betty for my nails. I either do gel or shellac. They always take such good care of me and take the time to make sure my nails and toes are perfect before walking out the door. I can't say enough nice things about Maite Nail Spa. Everyone that works there is so friendly and welcoming.
Maite Nail & Skin Spa does good work.
I'm close-by so I'm able to walk-in most of the time to get an impromptu mani or pedi.
The only reason I'm not giving perfect stars is because, depending on the person, they sometimes push for a more expensive mani or pedi and it bugs. If I wanted that, I would ask for it. It's supposed to be my relaxing time. It's also not always consistent. I always get the same basic pedi and sometimes they do the hot rocks and sometimes they don't. I don't mind because I actually don't like the hot rocks.
In any case, this place is decent and I don't have any plans to go to another nail salon.
Le soaked off my previous shellac manicure. Except she didn't wait long enough for my nails to soak and tried to forcefully scrape the old shellac off, along with the top layer of my nail. I stopped her and asked her to wait longer (several times, because she didn't speak any English and didn't understand why I was pulling my hands away). After waiting, she dug her fingernails into my fingers while scraping the remaining shellac off. I was sure that my first experience here was going to be a disaster. Then Le switched with Lyn, and it all turned around. Lyn was meticulous and very sweet, she was attentive and careful and ended up giving me one of the best shellac manicures I've had in months. This is going to be my new regular joint and I'm scheduling appointments with Lyn. Four stars for the rough beginning but ended strong!
I'm writing this review as a response to the few bad reviews Maite Nail & Skin Spa has received. I have been going to this shop for over 2 years and love the staff and the quality of the services. Betty is an absolute artist at her work- and tireless at that, and Lyn and the other workers are very, very good. If not, Lou will fix it! On the hygiene aspect, I find them very careful. Having gone to salons where the hygiene was lacking, this one is clean and not overpriced. I really appreciate the absence of a television and the relaxing music. It lets conversation or reading dominate and is a breath of calm air in Burlingame.
The nail technicians here are always very nice and attentive. I love coming here to get my pedicure and my gel manicure done since they look beautiful and last for over 3 weeks!
I went here for the first time and got a pedicure. The woman (I believe her name was Lyn) took her time and did a great job. I will return for a shellac manicure, and update my review since that is what usually makes or breaks my nail salon relationships.
The business itself isn't huge but seems clean enough, and is in a great location right next to Burlingame Ave.
My favorite nail salon in the peninsula! Friendly staff, complimentary hot tea, easy metered street parking, and their regular manicures last me two weeks! Ask for Betty- she's the best
Me and my girlfriend picked this place to get nails and toes done and it was last minute walk in. It took almost 4 hrs for both of us because it started getting busy. I got full set pink and white with purple tips and solid color on toes. lyn suggested to add gel and light glitter and it looks amazing! My friend had only needed a fill and pedi, the lady who did her nails did a great job at fixing them up making them look better, the place before messed them up. We are both very happy with our nails, defiantly will return.
I was tired of driving to San Bruno and getting crappy service and results so I decided to try out a new place.
Excellent service. When I first got there, I asked if they had quarters for me to feed the meter. Without hesitation, Lu gave me four quarters in exchange for a dollar.
She sat me down for a mani/pedi. As I was talking to her, I decided to get a gel nail. Lee was doing my pedicure at the same time and did an awesome job. Lu finished with my nails and sent me off to Lee to color my nails. Lee was very thorough and made sure I was satisfied with the end result. As Lee was coloring my nails, I noticed I needed to feed the meter 15 more mintues. The front desk guy asked me where I parked my car and went and fed the meter.
My manicure and pedicure turned out great and will definitely be back!
not a bad $35 mani-pedi! i had a monday morning off and my nails were in need of some serious tlc. interestingly, there's not a lot of nail salons open on a monday and the reviews seemed decent, so i thought, "why not?"
the condition of the salon is typical of your mom&pop owned place - essentials without the bells & whistles. the owner, lu, is extremely hospitable and friendly. she, alone, would be a reason to become a regular.
the mani-pedi seemed typical at first, but then my feet were treated to a nice hot stone massage...that was an nice surprise and made the $35 worth so much more.
the reason why i couldn't give them 5 stars was the paint job. you can't throw me a pickup line and not be able to close. their paint isn't terrible, but it is somewhat beginner/intermediate level. if that could be improved - this will be my go-to, not backup.
Love love love this nail salon! Ahhhhhh finally I have a nail salon that I can truly trust and depend on to do my nails right. I have held off on writing a review for this spot until I have gone a few times to truly know that they are good, and let me tell you...THEY ARE AWESOME!
I go in every 3-4 weeks to get a gel manicure and regular pedicure ($45 + $5 tip) They take their time with no rush at all. The place is always very clean and the staff has always been very kind and respectful.
I am originally from SF, so I felt like $45 for a mani/pedi was a little pricey at first, but when I saw that their work and the product quality was top notch, then I felt like its worth every penny.
Thank you Maite Nail salon, keep up the great work!
I called earlier this afternoon, and asked if they had any appointments available for a mani and pedi. Lu (I'm not sure if I spelled it correctly) who answered the call was very friendly and nice. Told me sure and what time would be convenient for me to come in. I told her I could be there in about 15-20 minutes.
I arrived and Bety greeted me and asked me to pick a color. I looked at some colors and asked if they had some other color. Bety immediately helped me locate a similar color in the gel selection.
Shortly after, I was seated and on my way to a new mani and pedi experience. Bety helped me remove my old gel polish and another girl I'm not sure what her name was but her apron said Fon? She helped me with my pedi and was very efficient! I barely felt a thing. I usually get a little antsy when they start to cut my cuticles but I barely felt a thing, the scrubbing? Zilch! Then she massaged my legs with lotion and oil and then came back with hot stones and massaged my calves with it and wiped it all down with a hot steamy towel! Wonderful experience! I absolutely enjoyed my pedicure! Two thumbs up (I'd give more except my mom only graced me with two haha).
All the while I was getting my mani done by Lyn. I showed her a Pinterest photo of some random girl's nail shape and Lyn cut and trimmed everything down exactly like the photo! We discussed how some colors show up really nice on some people and don't look that good on others. Before she started polishing my nails she exclaimed they had a new color and she thought it would look perfect on me with my skin tone (I'm pretty light). I was slightly skeptical but she brought it over to me and tested it on herself. Normally, I'm not one to stray from light pinks, beige or dark burgundy (Lincoln Park After Dark is my fav by OPI). She convinced me to try this blue-ish purple color. I mentioned something about glitter and she then suggested maybe getting my ring finger with glitter polish?! I was like oh no LOL not going to do that but somehow I got convinced and I'm really glad she has had lots of nail experience and suggested some really great things. The polish color (I think it's called Plumeria cream I don't know the brand) and the glitter went great together! Thank you so much Lyn!
Let me tell you something ladies and gents, they were thorough and absolutely wonderful to me! They are so sweet and funny! I won't ever forget this wonderful experience here and I plan on coming back again! By the way I think this is the best priced gel manicure and pedicure and for the extent of service, care and attention they put into their work is amazing! Def a must! I've paid more for the same service at another salon that wasn't that attentive!
Maite Nail Spa is wonderful! I found out about this place a year ago ish from my friend and decided to get my nails done. I wanted to try a gel manicure since I knew it would last longer than normal nails. I also wanted my toes done so I called to make an appointment and day of, I was greeted by Lu and she was very nice and friendly. I was immediately sat down on the massage chairs and they offered me tea. Service was really good and everyone was extremely nice and friendly. I've been going to get my nails done 4-5 times now and each time is wonderful! I notice every time I go there are a lot of people so be sure to make an appointment. Their French gels are perfect and I like to get mine done by Betty.
I usually get French gel manicure then French pedicure so $50 and then $5 tip! I would say definitely worth the money and the time. Also the gel lasts for more than a month for me!
I've been going here for the past year or so and I can say that every time I've gone my nails look great. They are very professional and sweet. It's a little more expensive than the other salon I used to go to, but I think it's worth it for the job they do. I get compliments on my nails every time I go and they never turn out sloppy. Best nail salon-and I've tried a lot! Definitely recommend.
I had my eyebrows waxed by the lady I forget her name but she said she has been doing this for a long time. I told her that I've been going to the same person for about 10 yrs until my person moved so I was in the hunt for a new aesthetician. She took her time and my eyebrows were perfectly shaped. The gentleman who did my gel manicure was also very gentle and did a very good job. He did my French manicure and you can tell he knows what he is doing. So far so good! Would I come back again, yes! I would highly recommend there aesthetician since she has been doing this for a very long time.
This has been my regular nail salon for over three years. I have recommended Maite to all of my friends. Lu shows a true dedication to her customers and everyone knows me by name. Everything from gel manicures to acrylics- great service and friendly staff!
I have been going to this nail salon since I moved to Burlingame/San Mateo Area, they do a fantastic job - the customer service is always wonderful, the salon is clean and I have had no problem with anyone there
There is something going on between the lovely ladies whom used to work there and the owner.... as is in any business they left opened a salon and of course did whatever they could to take customers with them, including causing problems for the owner. The owner Lu is a lovely woman and has no reason to tell fake facts to anyone. Without getting into a she said, she said...
What ever BS is going on between 2 girls who wanted to open their own place and take clients and the owner IT SHOULD not stop you from getting your nails done here. And hey everyone has a bad day and people get cut. Your not spending 65.00 at a 5 star hotel and getting champagne, these girls work hard and do a great job and for 25.00 bucks! If you want to see the other girls go to their salon, but don't bad mouth the owner and her business, she is great and they do an awesome job.
Love this place. The best manicure I ever have. My friends and I walked in this place to get a regular manicure and pedicure. We had a birthday party. This salon was clean and nice. They offered me and my friend tea and water. Good services. The guy name Long (I think) who did my manicure did a good job. I really loved the color.The lady name Fon or Fong, I am not sure, who did my pedicure, really took time to do my feet. They did a incredible jobs. I felt relaxing with hot stone massage. I highly recommend this place to everyone who is looking for a great manicure and pedicure in Burlingame. I absolutely will come back and try eye brown wax done by Lu because the lady sitting next to me telling me that Lu, the owner, is doing her eye browns for 2 years. She said her eye browns only done by Lu.
This place is a little gem in Burlingame. The price is reasonable and the staff is very caring--they definitely know what they're doing! Also, the salon is clean and organized.
Everytime I want to get my nails done they have space for me, even if it's 20 minutes before closing. I really like that they don't rush through a manicure or pedicure even if they're busy or it's the end of the day. I will keep going back to Maite as long as I live in the area.
Love this place.
I have been going to this place for 2 years, and I refuse to go anywhere else. I have seen Fon, she is amazing! I've always been more than happy with the work she does.
They have chairs that massage your back while they take care of your feet. When they massage your legs, feet, they use warm stones! You gotta try this place!
Fon does the best waxing! My sister and I went to many places before finding Fon at Maite. It is always fast and, most importantly, painless! She is the go to for any kind of bikini waxing.
Fon was great!
Brought in my crystal stickers to put on my gel nails and she helped me put on skillfully.
I went 2 weeks ago with my friend for her wedding. Mina did OPI gelish polish for my hands. I love it! She recommended me to do orange-red color and I love it! She is very detailed and takes her time. Lu is very caring and checks on me a few times to make sure everything is good. My friend brought some bling bling nail stickers and they put them on for her for free! So pretty!
I highly recommend this place for eye brow waxing! My brows were a mess! Lu, the owner, worked her magic and now my eye brows look amazing. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly!
I am even more in love with this place. First let me sat a big thank you for being open on the 4th of July ! They have this new women Jennifer, who is amazing. She is extremely talented, if you show her a picture they come out exactly like the picture. I've been doing my nails on and off for over 10 years. This place by far is one of the best. They never rush you and most of the time I have two girls working on me at the same time. Lou the owner does a fantastic job of making you feel welcome and like part of the family. Definitely worth the drive and I would recommend this place to anyone
Been coming here to get my gel manicures and always left with happy hands! They even give you an arm massage to seal the deal.
They always asked me about adding a pedicure for a better deal so I finally came in for my first one. I never really wanted to get pedicure since I was concerned about my feet. Lu made me feel super comfortable and made sure I would leave not having that discomfort anymore.
The staff here is great as they take the effort to talk to their clients to create a better bond and we even shared a few laughs :)
Big thanks to Lu and the rest of the Maite family!
Excellent professional service. People who really know HOW to touch you without hurting or annoying you. HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!! Hot stone massage is so good! Quick $10 shoulder rub is the best value on the menu!
I am so new at this Mani & Pedi, as you call it nowadays, anyway I was introduced to the owner Lu, she is great with lots of patience, introduced me to the shop, where the massage tables, where you would get your manicure & pedicure done, since my friend gave me a Maite Nail & Skin Spa gift certificate,( I thought I would give it a try, since I am screamish of all this pampering), I am from the old school doing all this all my own, and as frugal as I am, because I am a retired person, all the staff probably knew I was new at this, each one I had looked at just smile at me...
Okay here goes, the lady told me to sit back and she will draw the water foot ba th, Lu offer me tea, (but I am so nervous, I turn her down, and thank her). I wanted to watch everything going on, didn't even pick up the magazines, that they had offered me. The young lady, tap at my foot (I didn't know what she wanted me to do), because it is my first time, then she pointed at the foot bath (guess she wanted me to place my foot in the bath), then later she tap at my other foot, (guess telling me to placed my foot in the bath, and remove the other one so she can worked on it), she started scrubbing it with a pumice (which I do use at home), on the heel and my bunions, then she started massaging my foot, and I couldn't helped by started to really laugh I was then embarrassed, (what an experience I had), no one else seems to be laughing (maybe they are used to it) I didn't know, it would've been a good idea to wear zorries (flip flops) to get your pedicure done, I wore socks, rubber shoes with laces and the works, but I was surprised when it was all done they gave me this disposal humongous flip flops (because I have tiny feet).
I recommend this place to anyone, place is clean, fresh smelling, (I did at one time went to ANOTHER mani/pedi place) and the strong odor just made me gag, I darted out there so fast, because I do have breathing problems, I had left there at Maite feeling like a QUEEN, I most certainly will go back even if I don't have a gift certificate.
First time client! I had a great first experience today. I got a pedi from Mina, mani from Linda and my nail designs from the lender LuLu. All very sweet people. A nice man greeted me at the door and asked me to pick my colors, offered me a beverage and brought me a magazine. Lulu had never done a dinosaur nail design and did not hesitate to free hand it from a picture in my phone and exceeded my expectations. I will be coming back thank you everyone!
I loved the world class service I received tonight at this nail salon. I called ten minutes to close and they offered to stay open late for me so I could get my manicure today. When I arrived I was made to feel right at home and felt very relaxed. They ladies working were very entertaining and the gentleman was engaging and friendly. Can't wait to go back in two weeks.
Love my mani/pedi! So many colors to choose from and both manicurist did a great job. I do wish my pedicure was a little longer but she did give me a great scrub and the hot stones were a plus.
Customer service was great, everyone was very friendly! I will definitely be back again.
This is my regular mani/pedi spot. Today's care by Jennifer was excellent. She suggested reinforcing my nails with gel powder and they look and feel great. Excellent customer service.
I've been going here for 4 years. While they don't always remember who I am, I am always treated well and there are some real professionals working here. I just had a pedicure with Jennifer and she really worked hard on my sad cracked feet. She was a lot of fun. I feel like I just had an overhaul.
I highly recommend Tiffanie, she did an amazing job on my nails. I came in with a picture of different designs that I liked and she nailed it. My nails look amazing and they weren't that pricey either. The salon is also very clean, they offer complimentary tea and water when you come in and the best part is.... they are open Sunday's! If you like designs on your nails, ask for Tiffanie!
I had Tiffanie today and I love her. Very detail oriented, she even did three coats of color as well as two coats of top coat without having to ask :)
Walked in Labor Day to have my gels redone. Lu greeted me with a smile and was able to accommodate me quickly. I sat down, and after she wrapped my nails, brought over the gel colors for me to choose from. She stepped away to tend to customers who had arrived for waxing appointments. Then a gentleman, Loh (sp?), had sat down and continued my manicure. He was amazing!! He has a gentle touch, and does not cut off too much for the sake of making it seem as if it's needed. He even mentioned that I don't have a lot of skin that needs cutting. When filing my nails he compared the lengths to make sure they were all even. I have never had another nail technician pay that much attention, let alone spend as much time as he did filing my nails, not only to make sure they were even, but also to make sure the tips were smooth and not rough. He completed my gel manicure, massaged my arms, and made sure everything was ok. I will definitely ask for him next time.
He was also watching the front of the salon while Lu was tending to the waxing clients. There were additional walk-ins, and the phone was ringing, but he remained composed, and was always apologetic when he needed to step away. The floor and salon were clean, and all of the additional staff were nice. A good day, at least for me, to have walked in for a manicure. Until next time!
Hubby has some serious calluses and Jennifer did a fantastic job of taming them without cutting him. Definitely a fan and repeat customer.
Love that the nail techs are friendly and know the color names and I can always get an appointment!
I love this place! Everyone is so friendly and they have stayed open late for me to make an after work appointment. Jennifer even copied the picture I brought in from Pinterest perfectly!
I was a first timer today and I had a great experience getting my gel nails done here! Jennifer was wonderful and very friendly. She was very detail oriented and even added a little sparkle on the tips which was a great touch! I was in and out in an hour! She had me laughing the whole time... overall wonderful experience, my nails look great, and I will definitely be back! Thanks Jennifer!
I found this gem on the same day that I had just had my nails done down the street. I was walking to lunch with my BF and spotted this shop that I have lived near for over 4 years! I wish I would of found them earlier. Jennifer did my pedicure..amazing job, my toes look and feel wonderful. Fon did my manicure, every nail is filed to the same length and shape. I started today as a walk in at thier salon and left with another appointment in a month. I will be a regular.
This place is great! Clean and super friendly service. I suggest you request Mina. She is personable and does a great job!
Jennifer just did my nails. She was great and took her time to make sure it was a perfect job. I had a couple of damaged nails that took a bit if extra care. Great job. I will definitely go back.
I have been coming here for years for nails and waxing. It's great! Jennifer does a great pedicure get her if you can!
I got a fantastic pedicure by Jennifer today. I'm training for a half marathon and my feet were a mess - calluses, purple blisters under my toes, 2 nails that had completely fallen off - and she got my feet looking pretty again!
Great service, Friendly staff I love Jennifer she's hilarious!!!!!!!! Clean nice atmosphere!! Quality service for a great price!!
Went here with my sister yesterday. I called 30 min prior to getting there to let them know the two of us would arrive shortly. Walked in, and were seated right away. We both were handed tea immediately.
My nail lady was Tiffanie, who was so nice. Unlike a lot of nail salons I've been to, these ladies were not talking in their "language" to each other, but talking to us! Asking how our days were, what we were doing for the weekend, etc.
We both got gel polish, and both of us walked away very happy. These ladies were friendly, quick (35min for mani and polish), and thorough (the lady at the front door walked around making sure her workers were double checking their work to ensure perfect manis). Definitely helped that their prices are super reasonable!
Very happy. Definitely my go-to from now on
I went today on the recommendation of someone from the Burlingame Mother's Group I belong to. It was perfect for what I needed. I have a 2 month old baby and can only get away for small snippets of time. Maite was great because I was able to walk in without an appointment, and because they weren't busy, I could have my pedicure and manicure done at the same time! Lu, the owner, also does a great neck and shoulder massage if you want to add that at the end - it was a great way to pass the time while my nails dried. The only reason I give 4 stars is because it is not the same quality as my regular nail technician - they are a fast in and out kind of place. But, the quality was good for that type of place and it is great for what it is. I would go again!
Just stared coming here and had a great experience with Jennifer and Andrea (mother & daughter team)! Jennifer was extremely attentive and a perfectionist! She fixed every single flaw...I thought I was picky. Andrea...every salon needs a girl like her. She did great work while keeping everyone entertained.
Prices are comparable, facility is clean and parking is pretty easy. If you have a reservation, they will be on-time!
Tammie gave me a gel french manicure, and it was the best manicure i have received in my life. She put in a lot of time and care and was very precise with her work. My nails have never been better! I highly recommend this place!
Today was my first time going to Maite's for a mani/pedi and eye brow waxing. Jennifer helped me and she did an amazing job! As soon as I walked in they offered water or hot tea and helped me right away! The staff was also very friendly and accommodating. I made an appointment and they were ready on time, which is huge! Lastly, they mentioned that they can do fun nail designs, which I will have to try next time! I will proudly recommend this salon to my family and girlfriends!
This is my 3rd manicure at Maite (all gel) and my 3rd nail technician. Lu and her staff do a fantastic job. They take a lot of care with polish removal, cuticle trimming, and polish application. Tiffanie glammed up my nails today and they look fantastic! The gel manicures are lasting just under 3 weeks which is amazing bc I bartend for a living. My hands and nails take a a harsh beating from water and chemicals on a daily basis. My hands may look 60, but my nails are perfection. Thank you Lu, Tiffanie, Linda and Jennifer.
Maite: Bang for your buck the best nail salon in Burlingame. I have never had the same nail technician but every time i go in it's always a pleasant experience. I wish i remembered her name, but the last lady who did my shellac manicure did such an awesome job. it lasted over 4 weeks. I HIGHLY recommend this place. BTW, the prices are super affordable compared to Aqua or Pinkies. Oh, and everyone is always so nice!
I walked in with a nail emergency, last day on my trip here, and needed lots of work. Jennifer removed the old gel, put on new acrylic to fix my broken nails, and did a beautiful job painting and decorating them. It took a decent amount of time, and she finished my nails while her lunch was waiting! She did a really excellent job, thank you!
I would consider myself a regular here. I have only had one sort if negative experience when I booked an appointment over the phone but had to wait a half hour upon arriving for my appointment to be seen, even though it was the first appointment of the day. However, I do enjoy coming here! They do an excellent job on their gel manicures and have a wide variety of colors to choose from! Everyone is very friendly and welcoming!
I LOVE my holiday nails! I've been coming here for 3 years and love the entire staff (Lu, Betty, Fon, and Tamy...all of the ladies). I had to take a break from my usual gel nails due to my nails being so thin and just getting a bit sore from the frequent acetone soak off of the gel. This was my first visit back in 5 months and Lu was nice enough to suggest an acrylic overlay with the gelish polish on top instead of regular polish for a longer lasting finish. I love it! My job doesn't allow me to do much of the nail art that is trending now but Lu also suggested a very small star and a little bit of glitter "stars" on the tip of the ring fingers. You may not notice it well in the photos but it's very pretty in person and subtle enough for work ....it makes the perfect holiday nails for me!!
The ladies are very polite and are helpful in reminding you to feed the parking meter if needed. They staff is what makes this place shine over the others!! They definitely make for a relaxing stress free visit. I live only 3 blocks away and over the years have visited most of the many nail salons in the area....and as a local I can honestly say this if my favorite salon in the area. I admit I have found just as polite and talented manicurist in some of the other local salons but they have not been able to find any other place that has the whole package. Maite Nail & Skin Spa is very clean and comfortable, tea and water offered, large menu of spa treatments, appointments as well as walk-ins welcome, 5 pedicure massage chairs, large regular and gel polish selection, nail art technicians, great location and competitive prices.
I'm lucky to live close enough to walk here but Maite Nail is conveniently located within walking distance from the Burlingame Caltrain station or next to the SamTrans 292 bus line stops, which I do take the bus here sometimes form work. There also is a paid parking lot across the street as well as metered street parking. Afterward you can walk around the corner to go shopping or grab a bite to eat on the newly renovated Burlingame Avenue.
Thank you ladies, you're an asset to Burlingame!
A wonderful salon in a relaxing atmosphere.
Lu and her husband are cheerful and welcoming.
The facials by Lu are amazing and wonder producing!
The many manicurists turn out wonderful manicures/pedicures.
A convenient and comforting spa that has a very loyal following.
Thank you, Lu.
I am so happy I came across Maite Nails. The owners are so kind the moment you walk in the door, offering you tea or water and making sure you are comfortable. They have a fantastic color selection for both gel and regular polish! Jennifer is very thorough and gentle, I leave happy every time.
I've been driving all the down from the city to come here for years. I won't go anywhere else. Lu and her crew are simply the best
I love coming here. I made a last minute appointment today, knowing I was going to have to wait just a little bit. However, I did not mind. I love coming here. I love the people and esp the owner Lu!
Great job on gel manicures, and everyone is friendly!
Really nice people and good pedicure. The ambiance and amenities are not that nice, but the pedicure was great for the price point. I just got a regular pedicure and I thought the guy who helped me did an excellent job. Wish I caught his name.
Tiffany did my gel manicure and she was excellent! ! I'm so happy! She took her time and made sure everything was perfect. I will definitely recommend and return.
I have been coming to Maite for over two years. I love Lu and her team. I am a stickler for perfect nails. They always have my colors and do an amazing job. I always try to call ahead for an appt, but even when I am in a rush they accommodate me. From nails to waxing I love this place!
So after getting hurt badly during my mani at my last salon, I decided to look around and try out Maite due to its Yelp reviews and I have to say I WAS NOT disappointed. I had Tiffany for my Shellac mani and Tamie for my pedi. They were both AMAZING!!! They took their time, not rushing me, paying attention to detail and making sure my nails looked perfect. At one point, there was a fuzz or something on my big toe nail and Tamie took off the polish and started over. I know my old place wouldn't have done that. Basically, I have found my new nail salon!! Can't wait to go again. =)
I came here for the first time to get a fill and shorten the acrylic nails I already had on. I'm usually very nervous about going to new salons for my acrylics but I decided to take a chance. I saw Jennifer and she could not have done a more perfect job. I live in San Francisco so it is a bit of a drive but well worth it for the quality of the services. That being said, I definitely see myself coming back for my next fill! Thanks Jennifer!
The owner who did my nails was wonderful!!! My daughter came in and of course was being a typical 7 yr old asking too much questions and she was extremely nice to her!!! Besides the fact that she did awesome with my nails.
Quick, affordable, and beautiful results! I was initially anxious about getting my eyebrows waxed, but Mina made me feel more comfortable by talking me through the process. She was so efficient I felt hardly any pain. And now my eyebrows are finally even! She also shaped my cuticles, filed my nails and gave me a simple but perfect manicure. I felt like a million dollars walking out.
Gel manicure by Jennifer on Friday evening, March 27th.
Pedicure by Tiffanie.
Eyebrow waxing by Lu.
It is always a pleasure giving these ladies my business.
This place is great! My friend and I showed up early for our pedicure appointments and they were still able to get us in right away. Everyone was so friendly offered us water or tea. I had the best pedicure ever here complete with a hot stone leg massage! I asked for a design on my nails and showed her a picture on my phone, she nailed it perfectly! I bought the $10 or $5 deal and even with my nail design I couldn't believe I only had to pay $20! Will definitely be coming back and sending friends and family here.
I came here with my friend and boyfriend and it was such a great experience!
They stayed late to finish with us too.
They use hot stones to massage your feet/leg.
They are very neat and clean and what I liked most was that the ladies that work there really care about how well they do!
I came in with unshaped toe nails and my lady (wish i got her name) took her time making sure she shaped them evenly and painted them. This place was one of the best nail salons Ive ever been too.
My friend and I literally had nothing to do. So as girls, we decided to get our nails done! Judging from the yelp reviews we didn't think much. But this place is definitely solid. I got a pedicure from Fon and she was adorable! You could tell that she really cares about her work because she kept making sure everything looked perfect. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is in need of a new nail look!
I have been going here for over a year. They area always great. I usually call before I come in because they have times when they are slammed. Definitely would recommend this place.
I always judge a good gel manicure by how long it lasts me and this place is a winner! My gel manicure lasted so long I forgot when the last time I went in was! There's plenty of colors to choose from which is a must for me.
Jennifer is amazing, she is very detailed and took her time making sure every nail was perfect. Lu, the owner, is very sweet and accommodating. I will definitely be a regular here, thanks ladies :)
I love this place.
Very friendly ladies and the best pedicure ever.
The do gel nail polish very good!
Tiffany is great! She's gentle and patience and wouldn't rush to finish the job. Also worth mention that she did a cute design for me today.
See Nancy! I went to get a full set & i am extremely particular with my shape & she did an excellent job! I also wanted gel on top and it was well applied, no bubbles.. literally perfect. I am extremely pleased with my service here.
Tifanie did the best gel manicure I've ever had! Definitely going to make this my normal nail salon now.
I work around the corner and have been going here regularly to get my eyebrows waxed. I've never used any other services, but based on the quality of service and results when I get my eyebrows done, I'm sure they excel at it all! The staff are friendly, warm, and professional. I've never left less than satisfied, and you also can't beat the prices. I usually just walk in and am taken care of within 10-20 minutes.
They do a pretty decent job on pedicure. I've never had my nails done here. The prices are good amd the staff is friendly, accommodating and professional. The place is clean and has a cozy airy environment. A couple of times I've been less than thrilled with the paint job but the rest was good. They do massage with hot stones and lotion.
Jennifer is awesome! Styled nails and is very gentle, especially with my sensitive skin. Highly recommend this nail salon for picky people. Everyone was truly friendly and offered drink! Loooooove!
Great price, didn't make my cuticles bleed, top notch nail job!
This was my first time coming here. Jennifer was super friendly, real & understanding. She refilled my acrylics & did gel on top very quickly while also not causing any pain or discomfort. I highly recommend coming to this place; all the ladies here were very nice! She even took a photo of me(;
Jennifer was amazing with my gel manicure!!! She is quick, efficient and very detailed. She has that carefree and no BS attitude that was entertaining and refreshing I highly recommend coming here and asking for Jennifer! Thank you, Jennifer! See you soon :)
Been there 3 different times now and LOVE it there. I get manicure and pedicures there. They are extremely thorough and clean.
Had my girlfriend in town visiting from DC. Naturally we wanted to have some girly time, so I took her to Maite. When she got back to DC and went back to her regular place, they asked her where she got her mani/pedi done because they thought it was amazing! She told me best mani/pedi she's ever had!
Amazing service and an even better nail job. They were very sweet. I called maybe 45mins before they closed and asked if I could come get a full set manicure. I made it just before 7, so of course the lady had to stay back and work on me. She did without complaining and took her time on my nails- and she listened to every little detail I asked for! The male receptionist offered me tea or water during my session. I love this place and I'm in love with my nails!! They were so kind enough to stay back until 8pm. Nancy was my nail lady, she is awesome and totally honors any special nail request you have :) I will definitely visit again and again.
Also, the salon is very clean and the location is great! Right across the street from Burlingame Caltrain station.
Thank you guys for awesome service and beautiful nails
GREAT customer service. And I mean great!!! Lu found a time that I could come in, greeted me like an old friend, and was very professional and courteous, as is all the staff.
Jennifer did a beautiful job on my mani. She recommended square nails to reduce chipping. How helpful!
Fon did my pedicure and did an awesome job on my toes. I am especially critical of the scrubbing feet portion of pedis, and Fon passed with an A+!
Super happy and I will be coming back. :)
Best nail salon Lu the owner is the best
Best Deal in Burlingame!!!
I gave this place another chance, and I'm glad I did. I've become a regular now. Definitely, quality in service depends on what person does your nails. All the ladies are very nice and friendly and they are open 7 days/week. I've been getting my nails from the same lady and she's great. Today, the lady that does my nails was not there, so I got somebody else and it was not the same. She didn't have attention to detail, and when I told her about the things she missed, she didn't seem to like it. I guess I'll stick to the same person.
Best mani-pedi ever. They took care of my hands and feet like no one has before. It was $50 for a gel-mani and a regular pedi, awesome price.
I really want to compliment the woman who did my manicure. She was so detailed at shaping my nails and removing all cuticles. My hands feel amazing!
I managed to mess up my big toe when I got home. I went in today, and they fixed it for me, no problem. I love them, and will only come here again.
I love going to Nancy at Maite. She does a fabulous job every time. I show her all the designs I would like and she 'nails' it every time!
I stop going here for a bit because 1. I worked too far and 2. I found a spot in the city that I love love love. I work in foster city now and completely forgot about this little gem. I had to refresh my memory so I yelped! Ah ha but boo hoo. Because the nail tech I liked doesn't work there anymore. I decided to give it another try and asked for Jennifer based on the reviews for designs.
I had a pretty good experience and left happy ! she shaped my nails the way I wanted and cleaned up the mess on my fingers. The design wasn't perfect (line on middle finger wasn't straight and the nude triangle design is so small..) but close enough and I am happy !
Visited during a business trip so I'm not a local. Took a gamble with this place and so happy with that decision!! LOVE my shellac manicure. And only $25!! Helen took her time, did a great job, and was super friendly. Thank you!!
First time getting mood change gel polish. I Got the shades nude and gray, which changes colors depending mostly on body temperature. It's mostly a purple gray shade due to my own body temp. I am super happy with the detailed work done by Jennifer!!
Recently relocated to the area and found my go to nail salon. Jennifer is amazing on my first SHC second visit. Today, I had a deluxe pedicure by Mindi. Friendly and professional staff. Highly recommend trying the salon.
I was very satisfied when I came here for the first time about a week ago. I work in the area and live in the South Bay, so I thought I'd get a manicure in Burlingame to avoid the rush hour traffic on the 101. I called over the phone to see how much it would cost to get acrylic nails and gel polish over. The one on the phone, a man, told me it would be $35 for the acrylic and $10 more for the gel polish on top. It's probably cheaper elsewhere, but as you read on you'll see why I didn't mind paying that much. So I go to the store and get lucky by finding parking out front. It's Friday night, a busy night near Burlingame Ave, so I get really lucky to get parking right out front the store. Plus there's already 30 minutes left in the parking meter from the person who parked there previously. Sweet! So I go inside and a man greets me, I'm assuming it's the same man who answered the phone earlier because he sounds the same and he was the only man there at the time. He greets me with a smile, too. Double points in my book because usually the people at other salons just look at me and ask what I came for. So I told him what I wanted, and he showed me the gel polish I could choose from. He politely tells me to have a seat. And he even asks me my name. Wow! When I finally select a color, I ask him if it matches my skin tone. He said I could ask the manicurist because he's not that good with that stuff. And he even said "As long as you're happy..." OMG he genuinely cares that I'm happy with my nails! So I get my nails done, the store is about an hour and a half from closing but the lady doing my nails doesn't rush me. She takes her time but not in that snail pace kind of way, more like I want these nails to be perfect way. And the time she took was worth it because I felt like I was being pampered and my nails looked great. I asked for glitter on one of the fingers, and when the lady saw that I wasn't too impressed by the gel glitter she didn't give attitude. She was patient and let me try on the other glitter she had. Then I asked for a gold stripe on another finger, so she looked for her gold stripe. When she found it, she applied it to my finger. When I told her I think I'll go without the stripe, she didn't give attitude. She said "you'll save money anyway" Nice! She didn't insist that I'd get the stripe so that they could get more money. I was very pleased with how my nails came out. The service made my experience even better. The employees seem to really care about customer satisfaction. And I definitely was satisfied. I do hope they get more gel colors, especially nude colors. Other than that, keep up the service!
My work just moved to Burlingame and I didn't want to drive to my usual place in Belmont during traffic after work. I was able to call them at 4:30pm and get an appt at 5:30pm that day. I got a pedicure and gel manicure. 2 people worked on me. They both did a great job. I was actually very impressed with the gel manicure, she did a fantastic job. I will definitely return.
Thank you again Jennifer for my awesome nails! I think this was my favorite style so far! :)
I just moved to Burlingame and I wanted to get my nails done before a concert. I don't get my nails done much only because I ruin them on the same day I get them done. Not the case here, Fan took the time to make sure the color I chose stood out and it lasted for almost a week without chipping which is shocking for me.
I was a walk in on a Wednesday and they had no problem assisting me immediately. They serve complimentary hot tea and water. My massage chair wasn't able to scoot back, but the rolling massage made up for it.
They have a great selection on Essie nail polish which I personally buy myself and will definitely return soon!
Today was my first time here, and I must say that it was a pleasant experience. I called ahead of time and spoke to Lu just to see if walk-ins would be acceptable today. She informed me that it would be okay so I drove to be salon. I waited 15 minutes, which for me was okay because I wasn't on a rush. Sunday fun day for me... I have naturally strong and healthy nails, and I'm typically classic gal who loves French Tip painted nails for my hands. I often get my nails mistaken as fake nails like today, but it's typical. I get it all the time. I never have manicurists put any gel nail polish on my nails, and I'm particular of the square shape for each nail. Lyn helped me today, and she did a wonderful job with my French tip color change. I would definitely come back, but I would probably bring a face mask and wear my eye glasses to prevent inhalation of the fumes and irritation to my eyes. The fumes coming from other parts of the salon were pretty strong, so strong that I ended having a major headache and nauseous afterwards. My eyes were itchy as well. In terms of the work, I really liked Lyn's work. She knows that I'm very picky. Hehe I know that I'm picky and admitted it to her at this visit. She went above and beyond to get them they way I wanted them to look. A+ work for Lyn
This salon is really reasonable, great mani/pedi & the manicurists are so much fun!
I love this place, I come here after work cuz it's right around the corner and it's always very good. I get my gel manicures done and occasionally pedicures and they always are very detailed with their painting and take their time, they offer you tea which is really nice, and are SUPER adorable especially being in Burlingame! Today I saw Nancy and she did a great job on my gel!
Small little place with very nice technicians. Nancy helped me. I received a pedicure and brow wax. Simple and effective. No frills. Reasonable price
I'm a creature of habit and have been coming to Maite for years. Lu always takes care of me. Contrary to some of the reviews, I've never been cut by any of the nail technicians. In fact, they've actually relieved some pain caused by ingrown nails or hang nails. I'm always welcomed when I walk in, asked if I want tea or water, and seated in a timely manner. I love the hot stone massage with my pedicures. They have several ladies who provide gel manicures (shellac) and a variety of colors to choose from. Today I tried a shoulder massage from Lu and she relieved the tension in my shoulders with a healing oil.
Added bonus: they gave wifi. I usually bring my iPad when I go for pedicures.
Tip: There's free meter-less parking behind the railroad tracks.
Wow, this place takes a nail salon to a new level. They have a large selection of colors for shellac, probably more than most salons I've been at. I was really impressed by the service here, everyone here was extremely polite and professional. The owners really go the extra mile to make sure you're comfortable - hot tea or water upon arrival. One of the ladies told me they have a rule where they can't speak in vietnamese to each other while with a client because they don't want their clients to feel like they are talking about them behind their backs - I think this is awesome because that's normally what me and my friends think when we just hear the nail ladies talking in vietnamese the entire time.
For the pedicures, they used a plastic bag for the foot bath which I'm really glad for (yay for being sanitary). Each pedicure comes with a hot stone massage, and the chairs are the massage chairs.
The total cost for my mani (shellac) and pedi came out to $50. The owner usually will give a $5 off coupon, so for $45 the pricing is pretty competitive compared to other salons. Overall I was really pleased with my experience here, everything from the service, cleanliness, and quality of work was exceptional. Found my go-to nail salon!
I got a coupon for $3 off as part of the healthy nail salon program so I made an appointment for my pedicure. When I called, I didn't get an answer but to my surprise they called me right back using caller ID (I think).
I showed up a just few minutes after my appointment time and they were completely welcoming. The man who received us was super friendly and helpful. He brought us magazines to read and made sure we were enjoying our experience.
The service was quick, but not rushed, and very relaxing. My sister and I both were very pleased with the work and the friendly staff. My pedi came out just as expected. I will definitely go back.
LOVE this salon!!! Mina my nail technician is the BEST!!! Mina takes her time to make sure her clients are always satisfied. Lu the owner is always trying to go above and beyond for her clients and takes customer service to another level. I have been a loyal customer for over 2 years. I would never go anywhere else! I Love Maite Salon!
Ann made my Sunday morning feel like a real treat! She gave me great attention and was a pleasure to chat with, even telling me what was out of style which I appreciated. She helped me pick a shimmery gold color for the accent nail which looked great with the pink I'd chosen. Maite has good availablity and attention to cleanliness. Mornings are a little more relaxed if you want to catch them at a good time.
I love getting my nails done here!
Lou the owner always tries to fit me in and is honest about the time of wait.
I'm always happy with my mani pedi (gel and/or regular)
I read some of the reviews below and recommend to speak up if there is something you don't like. It's like going to the hair salon. Your stylist ALWAYS wants to push for a shorter or wilder look. So tell the girls what you had in mind and they will work with you.
They have a large selection of colors. So many it's hard to make a decision!
Everyone is so sweet that works there. Lou, Mina and
Fon do a great job.
This is my place and I will continue coming back!!
My manicure was $15. They were busy on a Sunday and I waited about 5 minutes. Everyone was polite. I was offered water or hot tea. As I was drying my nails I thought one of them had smudged, the gentleman who was directing activity made sure it was fine, mentioned he wanted me to be happy with the result. Turned out it was just fine.
I will return to try their spa pedicure chairs. I saw that they used a new bag in the wash tub after every customer.
I will be back!
The staff know how to provide great services with warm and friendly guest approach! They are very professional and fast. Nancy is talented, creative, and passionate! Leo gives great design suggestion. Liem understands the driving factor to his business is customer satisfaction. The salon is comfortable, clean, and safe. It gives you a desire to relax and refresh. Definitely going back and would recommend that you give this place a try.
Nice, clean & relaxing place. They took very good care of me. Leo is very meticulous and detailed on my pedicure. I am very picky about my rough heels, so I asked him to do extra scrubbing on my feet. He did and there was no extra charge, like so many other places.
I will most definitely return. I also feel the prices are very reasonable.
I was fortunate to find this little hidden gem. I've had very bad luck with nail salons. One manicurist injured my fingers so badly I couldn't even wash my hands for days because they stung so badly where she had scraped the skin off. Others did a lousy job that either was streaky or did not last (and acrylic nails with gel ought to last three full weeks). The previous place gave me a manicure that smelled and tasted so toxic I felt I was being poisoned while it was on my nails. MAITE nails has done my nails twice now and each time they are perfect, beautiful and still look perfect when I go at three weeks for a fill. Excellent attentive service and beautiful job.
I whole heartedly recommend this Maite nail salon! They are centrally located in Burlingame, reasonably priced, super friendly and most of all, terrific and efficient at doing a superb mani / pedi - which is what I requested.
Jenny is the best Nail person in the area..I am so glad I found her. She is very sweet and does a great job and does it fast! I have been to most nail salons around Burlingame but I Am so glad that I found Maite Nail Spa. I will be a regular from now on. Thanks Jenny!
This review is 4 months overdue.
My friend and i were in real need of a pedicure plus girl time. My regular manicurist wasn't available so I had to pick another place. Thank goodness for Yelp I found Maite Nail Salon.
I called and Lu answered and scheduled us right away. She was very friendly and accommodating.
When I arrived at the salon, small world it turned out to be someone that use to give me a mani/pedi. She used to own the place but has sold it to her nephew.
I have ingrown skin and she was able to get it out. Place is not fancy and price is a bit high but she did a good job. Will definitely go there again if my regular manicurist can't see me.
I called this place for a last minute pedicure on Saturday at noon. They were very accommodating and took me in right away. I was relaxed and recEived a top-notch pedi as well. They made sure I was comfortable and offered me tea. This place is great and offers wonderful customer service.
I'm not someone who just goes to any nail salon (scared straight thanks to Oprah). I've been coming to Maite Nails for months, and I always have an excellent experience. I'm one of the dreaded nail biters, and after I leave I'm actually not ashamed to have people look at my nails. The staff is very professional, courteous and quick! I would recommend making an appointment at they get real busy (hello, always a good sign)! If you want your nails looking fresh, this is the place for you!
I have been going to Maite Nails since it opened several years ago and I love it. It is very clean, everyone that works there knows you by name. The customer service is excellent and the do a great job on nails. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Leo is really awesome! He knows the newest nail trends and the hottest nail colors. If you're unsure of what to get because there are too many colors to choose from, ask Leo for help!!! I'll only ask for Leo every time I get a manicure at this place.
Beautiful, clean, and friendly salon! My friends and I drive out of our way to get our nails done here! All of the employees are so gracious and accommodating. The gel polish they use is relentless and does not chip. My experiences have been nothing but positive :)
I never want to go anywhere else because this place is the best. I have been coming here for years.
Like I said in my previous review, every time I come in here they know me by name, and always ask how my mom is doing (since we often come in together). I live in the east bay now, but still make the trip to come here to get my nails done every 1-2 months because they are so nice to me! The owner is so sweet and they are always very accommodating. I usually come on weekends (Saturday afternoons) and they are never too busy to take me, whether I have an appointment or not.
I usually get the basic pedicure, which I believe is $25, but it comes with hot towel and hot stone massage-- totally worth the price. My nail polish always lasts weeks or months, even though it is not gel, and I only come in to get them re-done because my nails have grown out too long (but the polish is still perfect)!
I have only had a few bad experiences here, but I think they have fired those people since. Highly recommend.
This review is for Nancy and FON. These two ladies are amazing. They are sweet, professional, and do a great job. I have been coming here for one year now , every 2-3 weeks, and never been disappointed. I always give Nancy different designs and she's an artist. FON transforms my ugly
Broken toes to pretty toes. She works her magic. Thank you ladies. Love you both and this nail salon.
Pedicure for $25. Full 45 minutes of pedicure& relaxation time. The person that helped me was a lady named Jessica. She was very gentle & thorough. Did an excellent job overall :). When I first sat down, she gave me an option to the turn the massage on for the chair I was seated on. The pedicure came with a relaxing leg massage as well as hot stone massage!! Ive Been to several nail salons but this is far by my favorite!
Thank you Jessica!
I like Maite because it is a clean nail salon. Workers are nice and usually greet you by your name if they know it. They often have time for walkins but if you are in a rush you should make an appointment. Wide variety of colors. Very relaxing!
Everyone here is super friendly and helpful. They know exactly what you like and expected. I would totally recommend this place.
I love Maite Salon it is very clean, have a great atmosphere and everybody is nice and friendly. Fon and Jenny are both wonderful, I'm very satisfied with their job every single time.
We called and got an appointment within the hour. The gal who answered was so polite and extremely nice. She squeezed us in even though they were almost fully booked which was great.
My nail tech was FON and she was amazing! She did such a lovely job on my pink sparkly pedicure. Everyone in the salon was so friendly. I also love that they offer tea to warm you up on a rainy day :).
Easy parking across the street (bring change for meter). I will definitely be back to get my mani and pedi's here.
Aside from one nail technician and her horrible job painting my nails (mentioned below), this is easily one of my favorite and most visited place to get my nails done.
The workers are incredibly friendly and are in no rush to take care of the work they put into cleaning up your nails. I've received both mani & pedi's from here and with each visit, I leave the place satisfied (minus the one nail technician I mentioned earlier). The owners of the place are super nice and friendly to anyone who walks in. They are also very accommodating. I remember one day when they were getting really busy with some walk-ins and the guy at the front desk made the effort to call the people who had upcoming appointments scheduled to let them know how busy it is and wanted to let them know ahead of time that they may be seated 5 minutes later than the scheduled time. They also made it aware to new customers who called in to make an appointment that day as well. Eddie is also one of the amazing workers who is always so welcoming and friendly when I come in during the times he's working and ALWAYS does an amazing job with my nails!
The place itself is very clean, especially compared to the many nail salons I have gone to before. They have a wide variety of polishes, including gel/shellac/regular finishes, to chose from which gives you lots and lots of options to match the color you want. I really like that the nail technicians take their time in fixing my nails and doesn't cut around corners to finish quickly (especially when it is jammed packed busy). Even for a gel fill, they take the time to ensure there wouldn't be any lifting in my nails before refilling my nails. They also take the time to get the right shape and size I prefer, while some nail salons wouldn't even ask, particularly if you come in for a refill. Overall, my nails tend to last much longer without any lifting or chipping, every time!
The ONLY complaint I have is with one of the nail technicians that I've gone to at this place. Although I've only had her twice, I didn't get her name but I know that she works on Wednesday and Fridays after 4pm (because that is usually when I go to get in my refills). Even though she does a great job at refilling and shaping my nails, she does a horrendous job at painting my nails. It is such a disappointment because the nails itself are evenly shaped and buffed, but when she goes in to paint the color of my nails, it ruins my nails completely and it looks hideous. The coats would be so uneven and she would either put too much or too little on each nail. I've pointed it out to her several times as she did my nails and she apologized but continued to do the same thing, even with the top coat. You can see the streaks of the top coat and once the nails dry, the top of my nails look very lumpy and uneven (even though the gel refill itself was perfect!). Sadly, it was so bad that I decided to just take off the polish itself and repaint them myself at home that evening.
Phenomenal manicure aside, the entire staff here is incredibly friendly, kind, helpful, welcoming... that really makes for a standout experience. But the manicure I received from Fon is just perfect. My nails were an absolute disaster when I got there, and I left with beautiful looking nails, polish, and hands. I called around 4:45pm and was able to get a 6pm appointment -- so grateful for that in and of itself! I can't wait for another work trip so I can go back here and try their other services.
I've had fake nails for two years, I've been wanting to go back to my natural nail for so long but no nail place would it for me because they wanted me to keep spending money on acrylic. Ana spent over an hour soaks my nails gently, she was very attentive to the detail of my nails. She literally made them perfect. The Male owner was very nice and kept checking on me, I love this place.
My new go- to place to get a gel manicure. I used to drive all the way out to Milpitas to get my nails done by a Lady who is now on maternity leave. I found Maite salon while browsing through yelp one day. Decided to give Maite a chance as its five minutes away from my home. It sits facing the Caltrain station and Burlingame High on California. I believe its situated to the right of the brew house. I decided to get my nails done spontaneously that morning. Gave them a call & a gentlemen picked up, scheduled my appointment within 15 minute notice (as i live five minutes away). I walked in at my scheduled time & was promptly greeted by the same gentlemen who i assume took my phone call. He was warm & upon arrival offered me a cup of tea. I've been waiting to write my review and I believe it's safe to say after at least 6 weeks my nails have not chipped at all. I can't recall the name of the lady who did my nail but she was really nice & didn't make me feel rushed at all when choosing my nail color.
Definitely suggest Maite to anyone. I know my sister, sister in law & a friend of mine have also been very pleased with their service. Total after everything for me (gel removal, gel manicure & tip) costed $30 I believe. My boyfriend also definitely likes the vibe at Maite a lot better than other salons I've taken him with me to. Just an FYI (:
This place was great. I called last minute for 2 pedicures for my husband and I. They gladly took us in. The staff was friendly. The place and equipment was clean. They did a great job on my pedicure and they also had time to give me a gel manicure. My husband was also pleased, but slightly embarrassed because it was his 1st time getting a pedicure. He was more interested in the foot massage..which he totally enjoyed. I highly recommend this place.
Today I was treated to a an Armomatherapy Manicure and Deluxe Pedicure and a rejuvenating shoulder massage. Fon did my Pedicure perfectly as always and Julie did a superb job on my manicure and massage. I highly recommend Maite Nails & Spa.
Fon did such an amazing job on my shellac manicure. Not only is she super sweet and friendly, but she is extremely attentive to detail. She takes pride in the work she does and wants you to leave happy. I think the shellac manicure I received from her was the best one I have had yet. When I come back I will definitely ask to see her again.
Pricing is fair and competitive to salons in the area (ex. my shellac manicure was $30). The salon is very clean and all staff members were friendly - they even offer you water or tea when you sit down. I definitely recommend booking an appointment ahead of time as they do get busy, especially on the weekends.
Note: Make sure to bring cash for a tip. There is an ATM next door at Steelhead if you need one.
Julie did a great job of my classic manicure including my hot stone massage! a nice bonus.
I love Jenny and the ladies here, it's a monthly must to come get my acrylics with gel manicure! Summer is calling for some sky blue vibrancy! So gorg! Thanks Jenny!!
I loved this place, the service was amazing and my nails look fantastic. Thank you Lyn for you amazing job. Definitely I will back.
There are a lot of salons in the area but I keep coming back because Maite is so inexpensive and efficient compared to other places. They always have room and stay open fairly late until 7pm which is really convenient. The best part is that their pedicures come with a short hot stone feet massage, which is pretty rare since most places would definitely charge extra for that. They're also really good about customer service, always asking if you're comfortable, if you need a drink, and having you pay before the polish actually goes on your fingers!
Jenny is absolutely amazing! Came here from out of town just looking for a decent place to get a full set, and was pleasantly surprised on how incredible they turned out! When I'm back in town I sure know where my go to spot is!
Fast and friendly service! Did a great job on my nails and my daughters nails. We will be back!
Absolutely love my new pedicure! Lu Lu did a fantastic job! Will definitely come again!
Pros: beautiful nails
Cons: had to wait a bit because of the evening rush
I had some extra time today and was in serious need of a manicure! I called Maite and was greeted on the phone by Jenny who was super friendly and helpful in making my appointment. I love that they have a receptionist. When I arrived I didn't have to yell to a nail tech in the back why I was there as Jenny was at the front to greet me.. The place is super cute and clean! Julie did my manicure and it couldn't have come out any better. She's very thorough and even helped me choose a color as she thought my first choice would be way too light and I may not be happy with it. Overall it was a great experience and I will for sure be back!
I got my nails done yesterday by Jenny and they came out amazing ! She's super sweet & she takes her time, so the nails can come out perfectly ! I highly recommend her !
I'm in town on vacation with my family. We stopped in and they were able to accommodate all of us. We didn't wait too long either. They staff here is sweet and genuine. If I lived here in Burlingame, I'd be here all the time!
Love this place! Everyone is nice and friendly and I'm always happy with my nails done by Julie. She is very creative and always ready with some beautiful design ideas for my nails!
Every staff here is very welcoming and friendly. Even you walk-in or call as last minute, they always feel you comfortable with no rush. Julie is one of amazing staffs and is wonderful fun trendy stylist.
Amazing place walked in with no appointment great service friendly fast and extremely talented. Leo did an amazing on my design
The owner here is so welcoming and accommodating. He ensures all of his customers are comfortable and always makes sure we have a beverage and the chair massage going. I've been here several times and the customer service is great every time.. even when they get busy. Today they stayed open late for me since I got caught up in traffic on my way home from work. Not once did they try to rush me or make me feel bad, but gave me a great pedicure like they always do. Glad to have such a wonderful nail salon in my neighborhood!
This is my go to now! I made an appointment and they were on time. I didn't wait a minute more. Also, they are friendly and have a conversation with you to make you feel at home.
Went to this salon for pink and white dolls and pedicure, Jenny is amazing ! She did the most beautiful natural looking pink and whites ever!!
Super professional and very personable as well, the salon is clean and pleasant and all nice staff and the young man has given me pedicures is also amazing, you really get a full pedicure !
I will return soon , as I is a hidden gem in Burlingame ! Thanks you Lu lu. Jenny and staff!!
Jenny did my fill and gel polish, using OPI "Passion" with a graduated gold sparkle tip. She really did a great job. I wasn't on Yelp and just made an account to give her a great review. My nails look natural and are just the right shape. I like them not too fine at the tips and she totally did it perfectly. Very happy! I just moved here from the East Bay and was looking for a nail salon - I found it! Jenny is great. Five stars.
This is my go to nail place because it used to be close before I moved cross country. Now that I'm back, the service and quality has stayed the same but their types of nail polishes have expanded.
They have the usual - the spa chair with the remote control for a massage. The plastic bag in the foot spa for cleanliness. The ladies wear a white jacket as if they're in a lab. There's two dudes who also do nails but they just wear T-shirt's.
I've had good mani pedis and bad ones here. I must say Fon is very gentle with my nails. There was another older lady - I forget her name - but I won't forget how rough she was with my cuticles. So, it's a gamble of who you'll get like at any place.
They offer a drink and when it was my sister's bridal shower nail party, they went all out with chocolates and sparking Apple juice. It was very sweet.
I've also gotten my eyebrows tamed here. Nothing special but I sure look 100 % better than when I walked in.
This place is courteous and constant for the past several years. It's still my go to place when I'm in the area. Street parking and the Ave lots. They have WiFi and offer massages too. My last pedicure was $25 and they do walk-ins but be a kind customer and call in advanced to secure a time slot.
From the moment you walk in the door your treated with awesome service. The owner and staff are all very friendly and make you feel very welcomed. They take their time while providing your services so you can sit back and truly relax.
My fave Nail salon in the Peninsula, they always take care of me here and always accommodates my schedule. I usually go during lunch and they always finish on time. I try to book with Leo, he always does a good job and knows what I want and what looks good.
Awesome service first time here, came from LA for work and needed my nails done great choice. It's a must lulu and Leo are super nice and do an awesome job. The lady who did my pedi was awesome as well she did a great job . If ur in the area u have to come here . They take there time to do the job right which I love.
Excellent first time experience! Everyone at Maite Nail & Skin Spa is so friendly! Julie did a marvelous job. She's very kind, thorough, and gentle. Loved the atmosphere. Thank you for the great service and free shopping bag. :) Can't wait to come back!
Gel mani nails were done by Leo.
I recently moved to the area and I needed a go-to affordable yet good quality salon. I went here by recommendation of a friend. It's $30 for a gel mani, $25 for regular pedicure.
I got there around 615pm and Leo took me in right away (I called 10 minutes prior). He was very concise on my nails, often going back to file the sides and cleaning up any rough edges.
They have a 5-7 rings of nail color selection so you can most definitely find a color you want. My boyfriend actually got a pedicure here before I did and said they offered hot stones so I will come back to try that out!
One of the best places I've been to. The service is amazing. They never rush you and give each customer their full attention. I highly recommend this place.
Julie was really nice.i got design done for the first time.she did a nice teady on my thumbs.its 3 dollars extra per finger for the design.highly recommend this place.
Jenny did a fantastic job on my acrylic set! Definitely going back! The service is great and everyone is so nice.
I am really pleased with the service here. It is a small salon with great staff and big windows that let in sunlight. I've been to other salons that are too dark or too big. I came back to Maite of course. I've had great service on fixing chipped nails as well.
Great salon in Burlingame! The gels always last so long, because they take the time to do a perfect job. Love this spot!
I had my gel mani and pedi done by Leo and Anne.
This is my second time here at Maite, and both times I have been extremely impressed by the friendliness of the staff. Multiple times I was asked if I was comfortable and offered warm tea or water. I was also pleased to see how meticulous they were in doing my nails, often going back to file down or snip any imperfections.
TIP: The nail salon is located on California Ave near downtown Burlingame, which can be a bit difficult to find parking at busier times of the day. Parking is available right across the street from the salon at the Caltrain station though on the street side, not tracks side!
I love Maite - they are so quick and do an excellent job! I love getting my nails done by Phuong!
They do an amazing job here! Really great and friendly service! Ann and Queen did a very great job on my nails! I'll definitely be going back!
So, I can say that I am happy with results. First of all, principal stuff is very detail-oriented people and they DO pay attention on customer's needs. I didn't receive any "mean face" when asked to correct their work during the process couple times. So nice when owner really takes care about customer and can HEAR customer's needs. My manicure was a full set French ombre using Dip Powder and it took time to make it (almost 2 hours), but I have expected this since not a lot of places know how to do nice ombre nails quickly.
I also enjoyed my pedicure with hot stones and I will recommend this place to my friends.
Love this place! Affordable, and friendly service. Ready to accommodate on the occasions I have walked-in without an appointment.
Julie is amazing! Love her nail art and different techniques! She always does something super creative with my nails and I refer all my friends to her!
I've been going here for a while, my local spot. Went in yesterday for the typical and left the same as always= my nails were done ! Jimmy who seems to be new did my mani. Pics below from day
I have been going to this place for years and they have never fallen off on the cleanliness and customer service they have had since their doors opened!
When it comes to nails, I feel like it's hard to find a salon that is really good at shapes. These girls are amazing! When I say I want rectangle shape, I get it, instead of being forced into coffin shape like most shops.
Nails are done quickly and efficiently. Plus the girls are sweet as can be! I usually go for a solid color nail, but anytime I switched up to something a little different, they were on point! (attached is my fuchsia V tips)
Now eyebrows....I've been to a million shops and once I came here I never left! I travel all the way to Burlingame from Menlo, Just to see Lu every two weeks! I will NEVER GO TO ANOTHER SHOP for brows. She is irreplaceable!!! She makes you so comfortable and relaxed you can fall asleep. Her attention to detail is unbeatable. All of her products smell heavenly and are so gentle on my sensitive skin. Plus she plays really good music while I'm laying there, no depressing music lol Once I found Lu, eyebrows turned from a "chore", to a reward at the end of my work week.
Thank You Maite Spa!! You are beautiful
1. They're so, incredibly nice! I was offered tea and was told multiple times that they wanted to make sure I was happy with their work.
2. They do great work! Not only do my nails look fantastic, but I had a badly broken nail and they fixed it perfectly (seriously, it was like magic).
3. They're so reasonably priced. I got a gel mani, regular pedi, and they used powder to fix my nail - all for about $50!
All-in-all, this place is fabulous and I will definitely be coming back.
Thank you so much Tran, lulu and Tammy! I finally found a place that does a good job on acrylic nails in Burlingame. I will definitely be back:)
I've been here a couple of times now and have had a great experience each visit. The owner is extremely personable and remembers me when I call or come in, despite it not happening that often; I always feel very well taken care of.
Fon did an amazing job on my gel mani! I love it! She is very gentle and took her time on cuticle work and filing, which I appreciate :)
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PLACE. Everyone who works there work together. I wanted to try ombr nails and Lu Lu delivered. I was there a little later in the day but she never rushed and even had some other nail techs helping and learning her technique. She's detailed and makes sure you love it and have a good experience. I've tried two other salons, one nail came off and the other place wasn't giving me the quality I wanted. I landed here and I will not go anywhere else. When someone is willing to spend more time on your nails instead of rushing you out that's a place you want to stay with.
Thanks Lu Lu!
Came in this afternoon as a walk in for a manicure. Leo assisted me quickly and after showing him a picture of what I wanted, he got to work. I absolutely love my half moon manicure. Leo did an excellent job and even recommended adding some sparkle to make the colors pop. I've had a hard time finding a nail salon that can do a half moon manicure well and Leo did an excellent job. I didn't have time for a pedicure this afternoon, but in the past I've sat in the large comfy massage chairs and enjoyed a hot rock massage during my pedicure. The hot rock massage is standard with every pedicure. My sisters have come here for several months now and I can see why. Will absolutely continue to get my nails done at this bail salon. It can get very busy, so if you're in a hurry make sure to call for an appointment.
I am so pleased with the service I receive here every time I come for manicure, pedicures and shoulder-back massage. They are friendly, professional, and responsive. I appreciate how clean and hygienic the place is. Furthermore, the owners are always present and supports the staff. I continue to recommend their services.
I've been getting my nails and eyebrows done at Maite for years and they do a great job. Lu and her husband run a great nail salon and they're always making sure that you have whatever you need (the right nail color, water/tea and a good chair to sit in). Love this place!
Fon did a great job. The place is clean and quiet. It was relaxing environment. I would recommend this place.
Excellent service. Clean and quiet. Very efficient in their work. Decent in price for both gel mani and pedi. Will definitely come back again. Thank you.
Julie and her team did a wonderful job on my watercolor/unicorn nail art. You did a wonderful job on my pedicure. Everyone was super nice and patient. The three of them were working on me. I felt like a queen. I'll let the picture do all the review.
I love this place! I live right down the street and have been getting my nails done here for two years now. Everyone is extremely friendly and pays attention to every little detail. If you don't like something they will fix it with no questions asked! I love the quality of the gel manicures as it's always difficult to find a place that makes them last longer than one week. Always have great gel done here. Highly recommend!
Everyone is so great! They are convenient, good prices and up to date with new colors! Clean environment! Shout out to Leo for these awesome Fourth of July nails!
--Friendly yet highly-technically oriented for regular mani's and pedis I don't do gels so can't speak to that
--Lively atmosphere but still relaxing
--Clean space and tools
--Overall the BEST nail salon in Burlingame my hooves have seen 'em all
--Leo and Julie are awesome, but so are the others, they are my faves.
--They rock a massage with hot stones. Bring it.
I came to Maite nail and skin spa for a gel manicure and regular pedicure. When I arrived I got to pick a color and was seated in a pedicure chair immediately. Tu did my pedicure and was very gentle and took her time. After she applied a drying coat she assisted with putting my sandals on and grabbed my belongings for me and walked me to a table for my manicure. Lulu did my manicure and also took her time perfecting the square shape I prefer for my nails. The rest of the staff were all very nice and do their best to take care of their customers and make them feel comfortable. I'm very pleased with the service provided at Maite and I will be returning in the future.
This will be my new nail salon! I had been experiencing meh salon visits until I found maite! I got their "dipped powder " manicure and regular pedicure for $65 total!! Great deal considering the care they took to do the work (2 hrs for the manicure). And they were nice enough to let me bring in my dog!
My daughter found this place on help with great ratings and comments. We decided to try this place and we were very very happy! Lulu, the owner is wonderful. The nicest manicurist have ever met! She gives great customer service. She offers back and feet massages too. She is the best! Try this place out.
Very nice staff and great service. Went for basic mani-pedi. They offer nontoxic polish for additional fee, I think only $1 extra. Did a great job, very quickly too, as a walk-in without appointment.
Everyone is great here but my go to girl is Julie! She does amazing nail designs every single time!
I love Maite salon! I get nails, waxing and facials there. Gigi does PERFECT gel nails! My husband loves their peducures with the hot stones. I am a regular and HIGHLY recommend this salon.
Very friendly staff, great area and affordable price! Mary does a very good job taking the time to make sure your nails look perfect!
Love Maite nails !! The girls do amazing shape and tons of color choices! Even have chrome! Tried a new shape and color yesterday and the results were exactly what I wanted! Went from almond to coffin style nail and a touch of chrome on the tips! Mary did my nails and was very patient and took her time!
Overall, okay experience. Fon did a decent pedicure. And Mary did a good job with my KRS.
Very friendly owner with great customer service and professional staff. They work very hard and they are the best for me so far. The location is very convenient.
Everyone who works here is so very kind. The atmosphere is extremely pleasant and comfortable. My acrylic nails have never looked better. Thank you Tiffany! See you soon!
Tiffany is amazing!!! She did such an awesome job on my acrylic nails, I got in late and she was so patient, didn't rush, was so detailed and my nails look so natural. Love her, hope she never leaves.
ive been here a few times for pedicures by tu and she does an amazing job. i did the worse mistake and went to another salon because it was closer and i was not working in the area and boy, i will never go to another salon again. im sorry tu!!! i can't wait to come back
I'm glad found this place. Fon and Tran did amazing job. I just hope that in the future will not be a problem as I always encountered anywhere I went is that they always let me wait even I have a an appointment. Job well done and service is great!!!I definitely be back!!!
This was my first visit to Maite Nail & Skin Spa based off of the Yelp reviews. I was not disappointed. As soon as I entered the salon, I was warmly welcomed and seated. Tiffany did my nails. She was very sweet and engaging. Clearly she has a lot of talent and experience doing nails and is up-to-date on all of the latest styles. I will definitely be returning to Maite and I would recommend you give Tiffany a try. She's fabulous!
A long over due review! I've been coming to Maite for about a year now since I moved back. I can't express how amazing Lu and her staff are. All my friends that I bring here are now regulars at Maite. Just for my selfish reasons I hope this place doesn't get too busy!! Overall, they do amazing work, service is spectacular, and the people are extremely kind!!!
This place is the BEST! I've been coming here for regular mani/pedis for about a year now and they take such good care of me. This is truly the kind of neighborhood place, where they remember your name and make you feel special. I usually get gel/no chip manicure and pedicure and there have been times when I'd really wanted more gel, but they refused to do it because my nails couldn't handle it & needed to "breathe" so kudos to Maite for looking out for me & my nail beds! I also never have a problem getting an appointment whenever I call, even if it's day-of. There are tons of nail salons in Burlingame, but Maite takes the cake! (This pic is of a 2.5wk old gel manicure - still in great condition!)
Love the owner at Matte nails. I feel right at home at this place staff is absolutely wonderful and make me feel comfortable. The Owner is amazing. I was so excited to see that they carry and use SEACRET products. OMG! So excited!
Came here for a gel manicure based on yelp reviews in the area as I was visiting.
I already had gel nails done but they were chipping, so I got it removed and redone!
The lady took great care in removing my previous gel and also in applying the new polish!
I didn't get any bubbles and it's doing well so far into 2 weeks.
Only con would be that one nail was done kind of thin so it is a bit transparent on one side. But, it doesn't bother me too much.
I always go to this place! Hands down the best nails salon!!
I always ask for LuLu she is amazing and actually puts time!! I highly recommend this place!!
This is really great spot! I was a walk-in and they were very accommodating. Everyone is really and welcoming. The lady that worked on my nails is absolutely amazing, I believe her name is ChiChi (I could be very wrong and apologize if I am). She's a perfectionist which i really appreciate.
I've been coming here as my go-to nail spot for awhile now, everyone is really friendly and does my nails to perfection, especially Lulu. I love coming here and will continue to come because I can always guarantee they will do a great job. Whether acrylic, gel, or a regular manicure, they always take their time to make sure my nails looked amazing.
Very welcoming and friendly staff! Cozy little spot and very clean. They were pretty busy and I was lucky they could accommodate me as a drop-in on a Sunday. I'll definitely come back, Thank you! :)
On a short term business trip I stopped by for a much needed fill. Staff and owner very friendly. Jennifer did my fill and my nails look perfect!
This is about my fourth time going to Maite Nail Salon, it has never failed me. Nancy does an amazing job and takes her time to make your nails look great! Customer service is on spot, everyone is so kind, and they even offer complimentary tea, which is nice of them. They're on time with appointments, sometimes they even take you in earlier. I trust them with my nails and wouldn't go anywhere else (unless they're occupied ). One hundred percent recommend!!!
Cute place! It's a like a hole in the wall nail salon service is great staff is very friendly. Jennifer did my nails and she did an amazing job!! I came in because almost every nail salon was either busy or just too busy....
All I wanted was my (right hand ring finger) to be fixed Bec it was cracked almost done the center. I'm so glad that Jennifer was able to save my nail! Thank you!
I'll be coming back
Great pedicure at short notice. Friendly team who were easy to deal with. Very reasonably priced and nice efficient service with hot stone massage. Will be back again.
My go to nail place in bgame. Appointments and walkins are accommodated. Relatively fast and very very friendly service!
Great manicure / pedicure for a good price, very efficient and sweet ladies - I will definitely be back!
Maite is my go-to nail spot in Burlingame! Amazing selection of polish colors, clean facilities and friendly staff. They do an amazing job!
Great manicure. I loved the attention to detail, didn't feel rushed. Loads of coin parking across the street. Friendly team and warm environment.
There are many, many nail salons to go to in Burlingame, but this is my #1 go to. Everyone is friendly and the end result is always spot on! From Jennifer to Julie, and everyone in between, I have never left unsatisfied.
Pro tip: Make an appointment, even though walk-ins are welcomed. Even calling the day of, I'm still able to make an appointment!
I waited until my third visit here to review this place so that I could be sure that the awesome experience I had the first time wasn't a one-off. It sure was not. I come here for pedicures and I can give you two tips
1) Always call ahead if possible. Yes you can walk in and get a service but it's so much better if you let them know you're coming. Even with 10 minutes advance notice.
2) If you find a particular manicurist or pedicurist whose style you like a lot - stick with him or her. You get a consistent predictable experience each time.
The owners are super friendly. They love to get to know you if you've got the time to talk!
Also, cash is preferred but they do take cards.
Very clean and welcoming...I truly felt like their guest. My nails turned out beautiful! Please try them.
Came here with some friends for an impromptu pedicure day and had a good experience!
We walked in around 3pm on a Sunday without reservations and were told to wait about 20-30 minutes for seats. We were sat one-by-one as chairs were vacated and I, being the last one sat, waited about an hour from the time we walked in. They seemed fairly busy, with a constant flow of customers, and I don't blame them for the wait--I'd definitely suggest getting a reservation before you come.
The pedicure was great! Even though they were busy, it didn't feel rushed at all, and the massage chair and quick hot stone massage was very relaxing. Afterwards, my feet looked fabulous, and I was so happy with the results. I got regular nail polish and three weeks later, there's not one chip.
They didn't have a price listing any where that I could see posted in the salon, and I believe I paid around $36 including tip for the pedicure. Overall, I thought it was worth the value, and would come back here again!
This it my favorite nail salon! When I first moved to burlingame I had no idea where to go. So, I looked to yelp and saw how many reviews they had and decided to give it a try. Since, I have been getting my nails done, I haven't had a bad experience.
They are very busy, but always know how to accommodate their clients. I have always leave with great nails.
Something I really like about the salon is how clean it is. Also, while they take their time to make sure you leave with what you want, they are efficient!
Lulu is not only an amazing owner but great at everything she does.
I can tell you it's great place for getting best manicure and pedicure; and also I have seen best costumer service here. I strongly recommend this place.
Love this place. Can get busy so make an appt but everyone is really nice and do a good job!
This place is full of welcoming people who really care for their clients! They do a great job for a reasonable price, definitely an overall wonderful experience. I will 100% be returning & highly recommend Jennifer for acrylics & Tran for pedicure!
Came here with my friend that frequents the shop. Called 10 mins prior to arriving and they were able to fit us in. Mary did my nails in coffin shape and did an excellent shop. -1 star because their gel color selections isn't all that great compared to others shops in the bay.
This team is amazing! I'm always looking for a good and affordable nail place in the Bay Area but Yelp for every place is littered with bad reviews. I took a chance on Maite and was blown away. They took my mom and I for a last minute appointment 30 minutes before closing and stayed way over time to finish my dip powder nails because I asked if they could do tips. My mom hates pretty much every set of nails I've ever gotten and hates to paint her own as well but she was really happy with her manicure and even said she wants to come back to try a color they recommended for her. She and I both loved my nails (dip powder with tips in a copper color) and the effort and skill shows in the way they are shaped. Everyone (literally every person) we spoke to at Maite was kind and talented (if you're into nail art, definitely try it here). We are happy to have found a regular place with such a wonderful team!
Side note: It was so comfortable I saw a few customers actually fell asleep after their pedicures and they weren't rushed or hurried out which is a really nice change of pace.
Love love love them! They do a fantastic job and you are in and out so you can take care of the other laundry list of things you need to do that day. My gel manicure always lasts at least a few weeks and in the off chance that it does chip they get you in right away and fix free of charge. Just make sure to call ahead as they do get busy, which is also a great sign. My go to nail place in Burlingame!
I went to Maite Nail and Skin Spa to get my acrylics done, and so when I arrived I asked for ombr pink and white. The customer service was amazing, and they were very helpful in terms of what I wanted and how it would be done. The nail tech used a dip to apply my acrylics and then brushed them to make the ombr effect. Overall her skill was incredible and the result was phenomenal. I will for sure come back every time I want to get my nails done!
I am SO IMPRESSED!! I came in today with literally the worst manicure (this was from another nail salon) and I had to get it fixed pronto! Mary and Lulu did an ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL JOB! I have never had someone work so diligently, carefully and perfected their work as much as Mary did. She did such a fantastic job on my ombr nails and Lulu proceeded to aid with the gold foil, with Mary completing the finishing touches. I recommend this place 100% if you want some amazing nail art done. See below for Mary's work!!
Thank you guys for making my nails beautiful for my birthday!!!
Had a great experience here! Only in town for the week and had to get a gel manicure because two of my nails were broken. Looked at reviews and pictures on Yelp and decided on this place. It was a great decision. I love these nails! And I happen to be going to a wedding this week, so they're perfect!
