i went here because the regular nail place i go to was closed and i was really disaapointed. they were really nice but it was really expensive and they really didnt do a very good job. they left my nails really thick and shaped them really badly. they were nice but they werent very good at doing nails. my friend got a manicure and pedicure and her experience was ok, but i got a full set of acrylics and was very unhappy. you can definately get a better job done at a way cheaper price. also another thing that bothered me was that the man who was doing my nails seemed very disinterested and acted like he was in a hurry.
CONS: too expensive, not very skilled
as a child i remember all my friends going to this dentist office and they all loved him. my younger sister just recently went to get her teeth cleaned and for a general check-up and really liked him. she's really picky about dentists and i was really surprised that she liked him so much. all the nurses were super nice and we were able to get an appointment without waiting too long, which is a problem ive had in the past with other dentists. they make a really friendly and soothing environment which makes it ideal for kids.
PROS: really friendly staff
what a fun place to take your family and spend a day, also a great date spot. they have all kinds of animals and many different exhibits. theres also free admission if you go on the first wedensday of every month, which is when i went. even if its not free, you definately have a great time. at the time i was there, they had a white alligator exhibit that what really interesting, and i saw something i had never seen before. they always have special, really cool, exhibits, just go to their website and check out whats there. also, their website is really good, it provides all kinds of information. but it is in the city so make sure to bring a jacket it can getkind of chilly.
PROS: really fun place to spend a day
A really cool store. They have everything you need for "extreme" sports. I went there initially before I went Kayaking. They had lots of selection and the salesmen were super nice. The prices were also very reasonable. My experience was so great, I have gone back many times since then. I have purchased equipment from the store for my diving and canoeing trips. I recommend this place to all my friends. Everyone should check them out if they're going to do some outdoor sports.
I've had a lot of problems with my back since I was in a car accident a couple of years ago. One of my friends recommended I go get acupuncture to solve my aches. I found this place randomly in the phone book. After calling them, I went in a couple of weeks after setting up an appointment. The prices weren't cheap. After going for a couple of sessions I wasn't feeling any improvment so I decided to stop. When I called to notify them I was stopping the treatment , they were rude and said my back was going to get worse.
WOW they have lots of socks! Its should be called SockWorld! it's so impressive. Anyways, besides socks they sell shoes. The selection is good and the prices are reasonable. The service was pretty good. It's also on Pacific so it's location is really cool and close to everything in Santa Cruz. You can take the 16 or 17 and just walk a short distance to the store. I ended up buying 2 pairs of shoes when I went there.
I went there after I got into a car accident while driving to school. This place was recommended by a friend who had work previously done here. The estimate I got from them wasn't so cheap, but about what I got from two other shops. They also took about the average amount of time to fix my Civic. So, overall they were alright.
they have awesome pets, and all kinds. they are one of the few pet stores that have dogs and puppies in the peninsula that i have noticed. the only problem is the pets there are really expensive. they also have pet supplies and lots of pet toys. it is really hard to walk in and not want to take a pet home. they have a great selection of puppies and i always have a good time when i go in.
PROS: lots of pets
they have an awesome selection of flowers and the staff is really helpful. ive been there a couple of times and have been satisfied everytime. their prices are very reasonable and thats hard to find for flowers. my sister had a party recently and we had all the flowers done from there and they really did a beautiful job, we were all really pleased and all the guests at the party complimented how beautiful the floral arrangements were.
PROS: beautiful floral arrangements
they have a huge selection of makeup and asian facial and body supplies. they have all kinds of face creams, masks, and lotions. its very helpful if you are asian because these products are specialized to asian skin. the owner is always there and she is really friendly and helpful, if you have any questions you can totally ask her, shes really helpful and knows a lot. they have a lot of korean products, such as isa knox which are really hard to find in other stores. i went in because i was having some acne problems, and i bought some stuff and it worked out really well.
PROS: great selection of korean products
CONS: kind of expensive
