FINGERPRINTS ALL THE WAY...I've been going to this salon for 15 yrs. It's family owned and you're treated like family!! Modern, Up to date, & "CLEAN" key word. Everyone is mentioning Kristin, YES Fingerprints has a Kristin too :) and a Kim, Dawn, Jessica & Lauren (my favorite) and let's not forget Lois & Johnny (best coffee!) ... & then there's Ria...the best Hairstylist/Colorist ... One stop beauty shop...& then there's spray tanning etc. etc. NEED I SAY MORE...Fringerprints is the only way to GO !!!

Get nailed is the best !

Fingerprints offers a unique family experience. They don't just sell beauty services at Fingerprints, they truly care about each client that enters their 'home'. A warm welcome, a genuine smile, a caring touch, an open ear, a memorable experience. The warmth of the entire Fingerprints family is only matched by the expert service they deliver. Going anywhere else is simply missing out !

I understand you pointing this out,but maybe the word got out that this was the last day to vote also this salon has been in business since 1993 and has a following for years- a large one.I don't see a need to be concerned...
voter March 30, 2012 at 01:44 AM
there r just alot of family and friends and people who love fingerprints and have been going there for yrs . so of course they are going to get alot of votes .... cause they are the best.... so there is nothing to be concerned about ...let the best salon win
proud voter March 30, 2012 at 01:59 AM
It is a friendly competition making a statement that something is wrong with the voting because Fingerprints is in the lead is absolutely ridiculous especially since you arent' even voting because you are a customer of either salon you are voting for a friend that statement alone makes your vote invalid as far as Im concerned !! Fingerprints salon has a dedicated following and that is something to be proud of ! Go Fingerprints Salon you all deserve the recognition !
audrey March 30, 2012 at 02:53 AM
Audrey FingerPrints hands down is the best salon in town. Dawn is amazing and entertains you as she does your nails. Love the entire staff who are friendly, accommodating and make you feel like family!

You go Fingerprints!!! You so deserve it. You are all AMAZING! Everyone of you. Kristin, Johnny, Dawn, Lauren, Kim and Lois. You all make everyone who walks through your doors like they are your family. I have been with Kristin since she was a single young lady and have seen her get married and start her own family with her twin boys Frankie and Johnny. The is truly an AMAZING Women, mother, boss and a am proud to call her my friend. She goes out of her way to accommodate you if you need it and so does Johnny. I am a nurse who works for a pediatric office in Plainview and need to look professional, neat and clean and have patients always asking me where I get my nails done because they always look so nice. I tell them FINGERPRINTS!!! I love going to have my nail done because they make you feel pampered. And the pedicures are they best. A 5 star place. Good luck!! You and your "family" deserve to win.

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
