I called around Gatlinburg back in August to schedule a time for me and a group of 6 girls to get manicures and pedicures for my wedding in October. We all live out of town, but I was recommended by another nail salon to call All About You Salon and Day Spa to accommodate a party of our size. I made reservations, and paid half for a deposit. It is quite expensive- $45 for a manicure and $55 for a pedicure, but that's to be expected from an Aveda salon. When we got there, we were seated upstairs in a waiting room together. They called two of us back to begin manicures and pedicures and the room only had two stations for manicures and two stations for pedicures. Not quite enough to accommodate 7 girls (and they only had two girls working with our group). While they started working on the first two, the rest of the girls sat in the waiting room. I was a little annoyed at this because the whole reason I chose this salon was so we could all be together while getting our manicures and pedicures. After a while, I simply asked the two girls working if the rest of the girls could come back and sit with us while they waited. With their only being two seats for manicures and two seats for pedicures, you can imagine it was pretty crowded, and awkward for us all to be back there, but we made it work. As far as the manicures and pedicures... AWFUL!! Seriously, a child could have done a better job painting my nails. Even my toe nails were chipping later that night, which I was told is due to old polish. Also, I asked the girl doing my nails if she could do the gel polish, and with kind of an attitude, said "hold on, let me go check." Up and left for at least 20 minutes, then came back and told me she couldn't because it would take too long- another 15 minutes. All of my girls were displeased with their nails as well. The pedicures were hardly that, more of just a polish. They did not massage, nor scrub the dead skin off. This salon is a disgrace to the Aveda reputation. Save your money and go elsewhere.
