5 star ratingCalled in hopes of a last-minute afternoon pedicure and they were completely accommodating. When I arrived, all the staff were busy with other customers but they somehow found a way to get my feet soaking! 45 minutes later, after the most heavenly foot massage ever, I asked if I could squeeze in a manicure and they were accommodating yet again.

The atmosphere felt so friendly and happy--everyone who stopped in knew the staff and was excited to catch up.

I just can't wait to go back for another foot massage!

4 star ratingI love almost everything about this place, except for the fact they don't take cards. I went here with my friend for an early bday pedi and I would have spent more money, but then realized they don't take card.
Besides that flaw, I like this place. It's very cute, not a large nail polish selections, but what they have is opi and Essie. The message chairs are out of this world and the workers spend a long time pampering you. The lady helping me even took of my super chipped nail polish on my hands for free. If I was a local, I would for sure come back!

5 star ratingIt was spur of the moment for my hubby and I to get a nail service. I looked at Yelp and decided to call Nails By the Sea and I am so happy I did!

We were able to get right in (Tuesday in the afternoon). My husband got a pedi while I got a mani. His pedi was the best he had has ever had! He had the upgraded pedi which included the stone massage. He has neuropathy from Lyme disease and the leg and foot massage was so wonderful for his circulation and relaxation.

While he was enjoying his service, I was getting a manicure. Let me preface this with this-- I have really strong nails and I like doing my own nails at home each week. So I am pretty particular when it comes to the polish application. Many times I have gone for a mani and been so disappointed that I want to just grab the polish bottle and apply it myself! But Wendy the owner, did such a fabulous job with the mani and the best polish I have ever had! I will attach a pic.

Awesome work by Wendy and her staff. A standout nail salon in Carmel or anywhere!
