Reader's Choice: Best Nail Salon in East Meadow

Time for your close-up: Where do you go for fierce nails?

Nail salons are an ever-present part of the East Meadow landscape and inspire passionate followings. Where else can you sip a cup of coffee while getting a hand massage, nail touchup or waxing – all while catching up on the latest gossip?

There’s an intimate relationship one develops over nails. Some of the most important moments in life start with a manicure and fresh coat of polish. Nail technicians become part of the extended family.

Time to weigh in. East Meadow Patch is looking to unearth the best nail salon in town. Readers’ Choice is a new weekly feature where we ask you – our readers – to tell us your top picks.

Each Monday we’ll list our nominees – this week it’s nail salons – and ask for your recommendation. Did we leave your go-to spot off the list? Go ahead and add it in comments.

Wednesday we’ll narrow the field, taking your recommendations to put to a vote in the ultimate mani-pedi poll. 

The following week we’ll announce our winner.  

Our nominees:

Kathleen...You are supposed to comment on your favorite salon...not bash others. Quite unnecessary.

I am a loyal client of Kristin at Get Nailed. I wouldn't think of going anywhere else for my nails, pedicure and brows. The service is great and you always feel welcome. I have been a customer for at least fifteen years. I highly recommend Get Nailed it is a great Nail Salon with great friendly people. They are like my family we always have a lot of laughs. Kristin by far is the best my nails always look great. You need to have your nails done at Get Nailed to experience the great service. If you haven't experienced it yet you don't know what you are missing

Warm comfortable atmosphere, beautifully appointed, fresh coffee, smiling faces, great stories and needless to say, fabulous nail and hair technicians are just some of the attributes of Fingerprints. A heaven for women (and the occasional man) to be pampered and made to feel special. Can you tell I love the place and the people that work there!

From the staff at Fingerprints Salon, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all of our loyal clients for your votes, heartfelt comments, and all of your support. Most of you started with us back in 1992, when we were merely punk teenagers. You’ve all watched us grow, mature, marry, divorce, bear children, laugh and cry. You’ve been through the good times and the bad with each and every one of us. You have all become part of our family, we love you and thank you all! When we first opened our doors in 1992, there were many nail salons similar to ours in East Meadow. We all had plenty of business to go around, and we would all recommend clients to each other if we could not get them in. Unfortunately, one by one we watched them all go out of business due to the high amounts of people coming here from other countries opening nail salons, and charging ridiculously cheap prices that we could not compete with. But thanks to our ever so loyal clients that believed in us and stayed with us, we survived the storm! Congratulations to Kristin and her staff from Get Nailed! For you survived the storm as well. Good luck to you and your business, glad to see that the true pioneer nail technicians in East Meadow have prevailed! Sincerely, The staff at Fingerprints Salon Kristen, Kimmie, Johnny, Lois, Lauren, Dawn, Ria, Jessica, and Eva
