    Ilena does the best nails in town. She really cares about her clients and provides excellent service. I have been getting my nails done with her for over 10 years and I would not go anywhere else. I had horrible feet and nails but with her TLC and amazing intruction and products, now I'm able to show off my feet and nails. Thank you Ilena

    I've been going to Ilena for threading for 5 + years! She does a great job and at a very reasonable price. I especially like how she always tries to work with my schedule. She's the best for price and quality of work!

    I have gone to Ilena for manicures (regular and Shellac), pedicures, and eyebrow threading... she is amazing! I have never been to anyone as precise and detail-oriented as Ilena... calling her a perfectionist would be an understatement! She takes her time, so allow yourself a little bit longer than usual for your mani/pedi. You get a much higher quality result for about the same price as other salons. Ilena is very personable and professional. I always look forward to my appointments with her.

WORKS WITH GEL, SHALAC(SP), ANYTHING YOU NEED. I CANNOT GIVE HER A RCOMMENDATION HIGH ENOUGH., AND SHE'S SUCH A LOVELY PERSON TO BOOT I PROMISE YOU'LL BE THRILLED TO HAVE FOUND HER.

    Ilena has really worked hard to put together a wonderful business for nails and hair removal and I speak of this very personally as I have worked with her for years and watched her build her business very thoughtfully with the customer in mind. Ilena is kind and gentle and you will feel as though you have been pampered by the time you have left her chair. Her prices are fair for using the best product, which is something a person should always consider, not to mention how cautious Ilena is about cleaning her instruments. I myself am not in the business any longer but would not hesitate to send all of my ex customers to her and I go to her myself. You are definitely missing out if you at least don't give her a try.I hope this helps anyone who is looking for the right person to do their nails/feet or remove un-sightly hair in a safe and clean environment!!

    Ilena has been my manicurist for 14 years and she does the best job! She knows the latest techniques, uses the best products and knows more about keeping healthy nails than any manicurist I have ever been to. She keeps each client's manicure instruments in a separate box, so I don't worry about picking up another client's problems and that was very important to me. She's the best!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I do keep up with new products as a matter a fact the latest is Shellac from CND a polish that wears like gel does not chip or smear, you literally get a manicure that the polish last two weeks
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My German grandma was always concerned about feet and said once ,"put your shoes on , do you know that one of the most important parts of your body are your feet? Death sneaks in thru your feet" As a kid that shook me off ,then in my teens I laughed about it. Then in My 20 it was not too funny as I learned of gangrene ,and fungus on nails causing problems in your body. I needed to learn more about and study podiatry,but as world turns around I end up in the United States,having to feed two girls ,and someone advised me to be a manicurist while I am able to get all my credits to be a podiatrist ....but, it has been more than 15 years and I still love being a beauty consultant.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
To hire any service: manicures, pedicures,hair removal, etc. you need to communicate clearly what is your need, if the technician does not understand ,probably you will be wasting your money and your time, and wont even get "what you paid for"
