    I absolutely love Alambra Nails! I first came in to see if they could fix a botched job done at a different salon and Monica fixed it beautifully! I feel so welcome here and will definitely be a regular!

  • *****

    I've never felt so welcome in a nail salon. Monica did a fantastic job on my nails. I'm very picky and she made sure that I was happy before leaving. Very kind and detail oriented. She has a new regular that's for sure!!!

    Wonderful experience! Beautiful manicure, friendly staff. Very clean. I would recommend to all of my friends!

    My friend and I came in an hour before close when they already had a full house (should've checked their times first because I felt bad) so I said we could come back another day but they insisted we stay and they would serve us either way. We got coffee next door while we waited and were able to start our manicures soon after. My lady was friendly and quick while still doing a good job. My friend's manicure took quite a while longer after a few rounds of trying to get her previous polish off. She started before me and hadn't even gotten polish started by the time I was finished. But her girl was super sweet. I was confused about prices as I paid $20 for my manicure which didn't include any amenities at all, just gel polish. No massage or cuticle cutting, etc. The board said $16 for the cheapest manicure option so I'm unsure how they determine this. That part made me a little uneasy however my nails turned out great and I'll update if they happen to chip too soon or something. I would come back!

    Came here with a bunch of girls for a wedding. All the nail techs were very experienced and got us in and out in about 1-2 hours. I was very impressed and their prices are very affordable. I highly recommend this nail salon if you in the Colorado Springs area.

    Even though they do take walk-ins. If you have a bigger group be sure to call them and make a reservation.

    New chairs great staff. they take time to do the job. one of the best ive been to in the springs. prices are reasonable worth the money.

  • *****

    Monica and her team are great! I have had a variety of services from pedicures and manicures with gel and powder. Pricing is reasonable.

    I found Alambra Nails & Spa because of the wonderful Google reviews. They were absolutely on point! I’ve been wanting to try a dipping powder manicure for what seems like forever, but my nail place back home in Seattle didn’t have it yet. I’m loyal (and extremely picky about who does my nails), so I waited to “cheat” on them until there was a reason. HA! I’m in Colorado Springs for an extended period of time, so of course I started searching nail salons near me who have dipping powder. While there were many places closer to me (I’m on the south side, about 15-20 minutes away), I chose Alambra and asked for an appointment with Monica because of the glowing reviews. And I’m so glad I did! I made an appointment the day prior (yesterday), and ended up running 10 minutes late. I called to let them know and they said it would be fine, there would still be enough time. I walked in exactly 10 minutes late, but no one made me feel bad about it (I kept apologizing anyway). It’s cozy, very clean and welcoming. Martin greeted me first and I already knew I had picked the right place. They’re genuinely nice (and funny!) people, I felt totally confident that my nails would be in good hands. Literally. Monica was waiting for me and I told her how I had found them, that her name kept popping up in excellent reviews. I told her how excited I was to try the dipping powder and while she wrapped my nails (to remove my gel polish), Martin laid out the dipping powder color swatches. They have a TON of colors, over 50, I believe? And they plan to have at least 100 different colors very soon.

    ** for those of you wondering, they don’t have the chrome/mirror colors yet, but the color selection was still substantially greater than I’ve seen elsewhere in my “Google research” - and quite honestly, I’d rather buy my own chrome powder and take it to Alambra than have another place do my nails **

    Monica was extremely attentive and asked me which nail shape I like (square-ish, with slightly rounded edges), she explained the dipping process and made me feel even more comfortable. The end result is nothing short of perfection! I LOVE MY NAILS, now I’m ruined for gel manicures. Haha! My nails feel much stronger than they do with gel, but not suffocated like they did when I had acrylics. I love how they turned out so much, that I’ll probably go back next week to have another dipping powder manicure with a different color, even though they won’t need to be done yet. I can already tell I’m addicted to this dipping powder manicure process!

    Extra: the Spa Pedicure chairs are BRAND NEW and look sooooo comfortable. There was a woman getting a pedicure, I think the nail technician was Ana? I’m not sure, sorry “Ana”! Anyway she did an awesome job too, I looked. And then a regular came in, the appointment after me, and they treated her like family. She told me even more wonderful things about the place! They included me in all the conversation and jokes, I felt very comfortable, and I was having fun!

    I’d highly recommend this place, not just for the dipping powder service, but for everything!

    Thank you all for making me feel like a regular. :)

  • *****

    A friend and I went for pedicures, the guy that greeted us was nice. The atmosphere was nice, clean environment, our pedicures turned out well and the technician was receptive and respected our off the wall requests. Great place to go.

  • *****

    I love this place. They didn't make my full set so thick that they look and feel terrible, they were comfortable, light and lasted a long time. I am a nail biter so my nails are terrible to work with, but they were very patient with me. They're always great with my 6-year-old daughter when she gets her nails painted too.

  • *****

    I love Alhambra staff. They are sweet, friendly, and work hard. I have had their spa pedicure and manicure several times. Reasonably priced.

  • *****

    Love my nails. I got them pointed and Areseli did a good job filing the pointedness and same shape as the other nails. They were definitely on point?. I will be going back.

  • *****

    The owner did my nails and I'm so pleased! Very professional and sweet, and made sure I was comfortable and feeling good about the manicure instead of rushing. Was also so surprised by the prices! Way cheaper than the other place I usually go to. Definitely coming back soon.

  • *****

    This place is amazing!
    Called the day before to get an early appointment and they gave me the first one in the morning.
    Got a mani and pedi done with gel, and looked fabulous!
    The service was just outstanding, everyone is really nice and listen to your needs.
    I always recommend this spa to friends and family!

  • *****

    First time coming here and it was absolutely AMAZING! Super nice people? Definitely going back?

  • *****

    Monica takes pride in the work of her shop. Plus has not changed ownership in the year + going there like so many others.

  • *****

    Best shop in town.
    Great staff and amazing service.

  • *****

    It was the best pedicure i've ever had. The lady that did it was amazing and her husband or boyfriend were so nice!! It was a birthday gift from my guy and he picked this salon for me. I'll be going back for sure! Best place in town!!

  • *****

    I got a set of color changing gel nails. The price was $30. My nail tech was very kind and polite. She did accidentally cut one of my cuticles, but other than that, she was very gentle and was very detailed in taking care of my nails. She shaped my nails nicely and was very precise in not letting the gel get on my skin. I overall had a great experience and will definitely come back!

  • *****

    Great bang for your buck! The place is smaller and quieter so be prepared for that if that's not your norm. My mani/pedi was AWESOME & done with such care!

  • *****

    I picked this place because of the good yelp reviews, and it did not disappoint. Everyone was so nice! They took their time to make sure everything was well done. I will definitely be back.

  • *****

    Absolutely a gem! If you haven't been, you don't know what you are missing. Great ladies that do a wonderful job. Highly recommend this place! Thanks ladies for the experience

  • *****

    Dropped into Alambra Nails on short notice a couple of days ago. The store seemed busy, however Michelle swiftly finished her customers and welcomed me!

    I've yet to experience such great service from a nail tech before!! My friends weren't kidding about this place!

    Anyways, I had to get my nails done by this weekend for an engagement party, I'm so glad I stopped by! Michelle was very patient with me as my skin can be very tough! My nails came out gorjuzz! Once I download the yelp app, I'll upload the pictures! Thanks Michelle!!!

  • *****

    Great! I called this morning at 9 am and they got me in at 9:30! The girl who did my nails was gentle, and did a good job. I will be back again. Thank you!

  • *****

    Great called in at 9 got me in for 930, the lady did awesome and was gentle will be back again.

    Absolutely highly recommended! I had a really painful ingrown toenail, and she did an amazing job with it.

  • *****

    Very clean quaint place. The ladies were extremely sweet and helpful. They took their time and did a fantastic job! Will definitely be coming back!

  • *****

    I've been going here ever since I moved here. I also groom the owners dogs. I get a pedicure and my brows done here. Highly recommend!!!!!!

  • *****

    I was in Colorado Springs for the weekend and desperately needed to get my nails done. I found this place through Yelp. It is smaller but really nice and clean. It doesn't smell like nail polish and chemicals. The tools they used were taken out of sealed bags and everything had been sanitized. Monica did my gel mani and Michelle did my pedi. Both were amazing! They did a great job on my cuticles and the polish goes all the way to the edge so there's no gap! Michelle even took care of an in grown toenail and it didn't hurt at all. Will definitely go back next time I'm in Colorado Springs.

  • *****

    Not too far if you live downtown, nice owners, really good work, very reasonable prices. Glad I found this place.

  • *****

    I finally found my nail salon! I got a pedicure done by Michelle and gel manicure from Monica. They did a phenomenal job! Monica was very diligent and gave me the best manicure I have ever had. Michelle did a great job on my pedicure and took her time. Definitely will be back again. Thank you!

  • *****

    What a wonderful place. Monica and Michelle were so kind! My daughter and I had pedicures ! They were great! Clean and very friendly... We will be back..

  • *****

    The place was very clean, and the woman (I'm sorry I forgot to ask your name) took great care in making sure she didn't hurt my sensitive hands. The two of them working today fixed my friends nails several times (sorry)! They were very kind!

  • *****

    Super nice staff!! And a dog! Great prices and a nice comfy atmosphere!

  • *****

    Really friendly service, nails look fabulous! She even repaired one of my nails that broke a few days later for free. Definitely will continue to go here ?

  • *****

    Very friendly, professional and very reasonable on their rates. GREAT Experience!

    Absolutely LOVED the feel and service here. Monica and Michelle did the best work I've experienced in Colorado Springs!!!

  • *****

    I found my new favorite nail salon! Monica introduced me to dip powder and did an amazing job on my natural nails. I really appreciated that she took her time and made sure her work was perfect.

    Also, I absolutely recommend her if you have any ingrown toenail pain. She knows exactly what's she's doing!

  • *****

    If you want a friendly atmosphere and a well done mani/pedi, this is the place for you. Monica and her staff are personable and helpful!

  • *****

    Michelle did a great job on my pedicure! The salon is clean and cozy and they offer a punch card reward program, nice perk.

  • *****

    This place is awesome. I took my friend there, and just the whole experience was awesome. We felt really cared for. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who desires a top notch experience.

  • *****

    I finally found a place in town to get my toes done! The owners were friendly and personable. My nail tech paid great attention to detail and was gentle. The salon was relaxing and clean and the services are affordable. I will definitely be back!

  • *****

    I spent months after I moved here trying to find a salon in Colorado Springs that could do my nails perfectly every time and be in a good price range, and then I found Alambra Nails and Spa, which not only met these two criteria but also is super close to where I live, has an awesome student discount AND the owner, Monica (who also does my nails) is such a friendly wonderful person. I look forward to my appointment with her :).

  • *****

    This place was really awesome! Friendly people and took real good care of me! Definitely plan on going back for more pedicures!!

  • *****

    I had my second appointment with Tiffany and I'm more than happy! She knows how to do nails

  • *****

    Monica and her staff are great. They are always so friendly and do a fantastic job!

  • *****

    Friendly Place! Definitely recommend it! ?
    Thanks Tiffany ... your the bomb?

  • *****

    I had such a great pedicure today! Nancy, the lady that did my pedicure was so nice and polite. I am VERY pregnant (due in 3 days) and she went out of her way to ask at every step to make sure that I was still comfortable. She even used pliers to open a particularly tough nail polish that I picked, instead of just giving up and having me pick a new one when she couldn't open it by hand at first. On top of that, all the other ladies in the salon were very sweet and I'm so glad I came in!

  • *****

    This nail salon is exceptional. No matter who I have they always do a great job. Taking care of my needs and make me feel special whenever I go in. If you need a great manicure that's clean and professional you have to visit this salon. Monica did my nails today and they look great. Plus she's always so sweet no matter how busy they may be.

  • *****

    These people are amazing!! As a visitor I was checking a few salons for a much needed manicure. Martin answered the phone and was so kind and friendly. When I arrived I was warmly greeted by the owner Monica and I asked to see the new colors and they had lots to choose from. Michelle did my manicure and it was one of the best ever. What made my time outstanding was the people who work here have very positive attitudes and a true desire to take care of customers. Bravo! Highly recommended.

  • *****

    The service was amazing and so was the attention to detail! I absolutely love my nails. I think I have found my new regular nail place. The price was wonderful as well! 40$ for what I got done!

  • *****

    Will keep coming back :) I love Monica so much. She always remembers me and she cares so much about her business. I love seeing her every couple weeks.

  • *****

    First time visiting here and I feel totally in love with the place! Like staff is very friendly, the environment is nice and clean, they are very organized. They are experienced and make the most cute and awesome nail work. I went for a pedicure gel and ombr nails and I just love them! Definitely will come back and recommend other people.

  • *****

    Always such an amazing job by Tiffany! I have been coming to see her for about 6 weeks now and have never been disappointed! She's great at listening to what I want & always delivers beautiful work. I'm super OCD and she's always able to give me exactly what I'm looking for. Not to mention how personable she is and how great she is to talk to! Thank you Tiffany for being wonderful at what you do!

  • *****

    I finally found my go to nail salon. I walked in and was taken care of right away. I was offered a bottle of water while my nails were being done, which I thought was really nice. They had a great selection of nail polish and the prices were great. I'm so happy with my nails, they look amazing!

  • *****

    My experience with Monica at Alambra was fabulous! I scheduled with her based on a recommendation from a friend. The salon was clean and inviting. Monica was attentive, professional and focused on ensuring that I was satisfied. I will definitely be back!

  • *****

    Such an amazing little salon! Great service and great nails. I will certainly be back for my fill!

  • *****

    My very favorite nail salon ever! Monica and her team are experts. Got a beautiful manicure today - Monica can make even short, bitten nails look pretty. Highly recommend.

  • *****

    I came here over a bad experience at another nail salon and they were absolutely amazing + understanding . Such a warm welcoming place , making this my go to salon. You won't get disappointed here .

  • *****

    First time and I loved it!!! They gave me exactly what I wanted and I was very satisfied with the service, definitely will be returning!!

  • *****

    I walked in at about 2:30pm and they asked me if I would mind coming back at 4:00pm. I made an appointment for that time and came back. The gentleman that helped me told me he appreciated me coming back because many people don't; which kind of surprised me. I was in Colorado for a wedding so I got my fingers and toes done. The girl that did my toes was quite talkative and I enjoyed talking to her. Everyone was friendly and they shared it was a new family owned business. The owner even shared attractions I should see (the Incline and then garden of the gods--both of which I did the next day) The quality of work was great. The shop appeared to be very clean and I was happy with the overall service.

  • *****

    This is my "Go To" nail salon. The owners are super friendly & make sure you leave satisfied. I have read the bad reviews & that is nothing compared to the service & quality. I highly reccomend this place!!

  • *****

    Outstanding service. They made me feel as if I had known them for years. Very professional and clean. I will absolutely go back as a regular.

  • *****

    Awesome experience. Very friendly staff who did an excellent job for a reasonable price... Also the establishment is well maintained and clean.

  • *****

    This nail salon is conveniently located and has the most friendly staff in town! I had a set of acrylic nails put on and they did a great job. The staff was kind, friendly, and efficient and I was very comfortable. They made sure that I was satisfied with my service and genuinely wanted my feedback. I will absolutely be returning and you should check them out! I plan on getting a facial there soon.

  • *****

    Just moved here from CA and looking for perfect nail place. Monica is great! Super nice and did a great job on my gel manicure. I consider myself super picky, and was satisfied with her work. Will be back for gel mani and a pedi next time!!!

  • *****

    love this place, go here every time and get coffin shaped acrylics by Monica, and i love the results every time.

  • *****

    Had a great experience at this salon. Everyone there is really nice and made sure my pedicure was perfect. Highly recommend!

  • *****

    Fit us in last minute before my wife had a very important interview. They did such great work and provided a wonderful experience for us both. My wife was having a very busy work week leading up to the day of interview and left us scrambling last minute. We are loyal customers now and will be back often. Lucky to have a very easy place to park and find. Thank you for great service.

  • *****

    Took my daughter here today and we loved it. Monica is great. Great manicure and they have an awesome hand scrub when you wash your hands. This will be my new place. Close to downtown and clean. Highly recommend.

  • *****

    I was very pleasantly surprised by this place, it was sandwiched between a comic store and a calzone place, very discreet. Inside though, Monica, who runs the shop and does many of the mani/pedis, was delightful. So very friendly and welcoming. She did a fantastic job as well as her sister who did my pedi and half of my mani. The prices are reasonable and I will definitely be back.

  • *****

    This place easily became one of my favorite places to get my nails done. Monica is so nice and did a great job on my nails. I also received the UCCS student discount. I will be returning soon!

  • *****

    Great manicure and pedicure! Locally and family owned and operated with wonderful service. Good value with nice options.

  • *****

    If you want to leave relaxed and feel pampered come here! They take their time while doing your nails and the gel lasts at least two weeks! They are so nice and welcoming and remember you if you come back! Highly recommend.

  • *****

    Great service and my gel manicure looks perfect! Owner Monica is so sweet! Definitely will be back.

  • *****

    I just moved to Colorado & found this business on yelp. I chose this one due to the good reviews and I am highly satisfied! Very friendly staff and I will definitely return for more services!

  • *****

    This place is super close to where I live and has the best service and prices! I love Monica, she is so sweet and can always get you in right away. AND they have student discounts and a punch card to get $10.00 off after 10 appts.

  • *****

    This place is wonderful! The prices are more than competitive. The anesthetist took the time to discuss what I wanted. The lace is well kept, and, the staff was very professional.a great experience that should be had by all.

  • *****

    Stopped here while we were on vacation in Colorado. We were able to get a same day appointment for 2 spa manicures and pedicures. They did a great job and the prices were very affordable. The place was clean and the tools were new and clean. The staff was very friendly and sociable. They had a few "regulars" stop by while we were there and everyone knew them by name. I feel if you were to go here more than once they would remember you. I would go here again if I was in the area. I would recommend this place to anyone.

  • *****

    Went here based on other reviews and we were very pleased. Shop is clean, quiet, cozy and unassuming. Monica the owner very friendly and accommodating. I took my sister for her first mani pedi. Beautiful job for both of us and my sister plans to be a regular.
    This salon is new and we were able to be seen within an hour on a Tuesday afternoon, but Monica says it is quite busy on the weekends, particularly on Sundays. So you might need to call ahead!

  • *****

    The service is amazing! They are such kind people and do a really good job on nails!

  • *****

    This place is pretty adorable. Really small, but clean & not overwhelmingly busy. They take the time to do a great job. The ladies were also really sweet.

  • *****

    Traveling through Colorado Springs on business, I needed to some nail services completed. Monica and her staff were friendly, and she is very detailed and meticulous. My gel nails look as though they are my natural nails. I will definitely stop back here whenever I am traveling through.

  • *****

    Awesome place, very clean, and great prices are . I had Monica and she was a joy to talk to. You should go here!!!!

  • *****

    Absolutely thrilled to have found this jewel of a nail salon! I will for sure be returning regularly! She took her time but was still quick, shaped & painted my nails beautifully!

  • *****

    Monica was very sweet and understanding of my schedule. I needed an appointment for that Saturday morning and she immediately gave me a time slot that would work. I found the shop with no issues and was really early for the appointment. No problem! I was seen ASAP! Tiffany was my nail tech and she gave me the best full acrylic nail set I have ever received! Very professional and efficient. It took 40 minutes and my white tips turned out perfect. I have already made my appointment with Tiffany for my first fill. If you want any nail service you MUST come here-the prices are very reasonable and all the staff are very accommodating.

  • *****

    Nice little shop with friendly staff.

    Wonderful customer service, quality product, knowledgeable staff.
