    I met Chai for the first time last night. He was very kind and efficient. He apologized because the day's schedule had run away and he was running late. Took a long time from when I walked in until I left, but the work was so worth it. Might be the best-looking gel mani I've ever had. Next time I'll try to come back during the week.

    I was in town for only a day for business and needed to get my nails done I called Chai in the morning and he was able to fit me in the same afternoon. Had a great experience. Traveling constantly for work makes it difficult to find a good nail place. Chai is definitely someone I will come back and see next time I am in town. A great pedicure and wonderful job with the nail dip. Be sure to check out his amazing artwork as well!!!!

  • *****

    The nail tech Chai is very professional and does an excellent job at all of the services he provides. I always get a pedicure and powder nails. The ambiance in the salon is great. I make my appointment three weeks out in order to confirm that he will have an opening when I want to go in. It is best to call and book an appointment. He has a large selection of colors . He is an artist on canvas so in the salon he has art he has painted. I have never been disappointed with the service I receive. Price in line with the quality of service.

    I'm in Dallas for work and on a total leap stopped over at Nails by Chai and I am FLOORED. I am incredibly picky about my nails and even keep a gel kit at home to do my own since I've been unsatisfied at nail salons in the past. Needless to say I was nervous...But Chai gave me hands down the best gel manicure I've ever had! Beautiful salon in Deep Ellum, amazing professionalism and a meticulous eye for detail, I'm already planning to go back in for a pedicure and another gel set as soon as I can! Absolutely the best nail artist I've ever worked with!

  • *****

    Chai is great and did a fantastic job on my nails. I'm definitely going back. I highly recommend him.

  • *****

    Professionalism at its best! Chai is personable and great artist! My nails are perfect!

  • *****

    Yesterday was my first time here. Chai customer service is top notch. Very relaxing and nice music. I woke up this morning and my feet feel so soft. I can't wait to go back. Thanks Chai

  • *****

    Amazing! Smart! Talented! Kind! Loved his setup, his music, and skills. A different experience than other salons and I will be returning.

  • *****

    Popped in. He was great. Got a pedicure. My feet feel really smooth and look sooooooo much better

    I am sooo picky about who does my manicures and after going to multiple places in Dallas, I'm happy to say I've finally found my guy. I got a gel manicure here a month ago and despite using my hands a lot, there wasn't a single chip on my nails, not even a tiny one. I was so excited to return again. Chai is meticulous about your nails and always makes sure to be very careful when doing them. If you call, it's easy to make an appointment and he usually seems to stay well past 5 pm. The shop itself is located in a salon. When you first walk in it's a barber shop but if you walk straight to the back you'll find Chai. Prices are also reasonable. My gel manicure was $30 and dipping is $35

  • *****

    Always does a great job and very talented. Just one guy and he can get busy so I would recommend calling before hand and making an appointment.

  • *****

    I found Chai on Yelp after doing some research for a local place to do my nails for a wedding I flew in for back in March. I wanted to attempt to do dip nails for the first time and Chai was available for me. He is beyond professional and is a great business man. If I'm ever back in DFW I'll visit him.

  • *****

    He is fantastic and so attentive! Wish is could be on that side of Dallas more often to see him!

  • *****

    If you are very particular about your nails, as we all should be - CHAI. IS. YOUR. MAN. It's difficult to find a nail artist to do stiletto nails JUST right, they're usually too dull or even almond-shaped. Chai shaped my nails PERFECTLY as I described I wanted (razor-sharp). He was friendly and talked with me but still put great concentration into his work, while being open to specific requests (you know those nail artists that don't take suggestion and just do it how they know how and its not what you wanted? That's not Chai). If you live anywhere within an hour of this location it is worth the drive and you should ABSOLUTELY make him your go-to manicurist.

  • *****

    Can you say perfection? Chai did a phenomenal job on my nails and feet! I'm new to getting the dipping powder and had tried it twice at another salon but was not impressed. Chai not only whipped my nails into shape but also took his time and was open to any changes that I wanted. His pedicure was so relaxing and prices were very reasonable. He is extremely personable, and I can guarantee that as long as he's in the Dallas area I will look no further!

    We are from Atlanta and have visited Dallas a few times recently. My daughter and I found Chai (pronounced "kai") in October and had such a good experience, we sought him out for full sets with art again this trip. He is a one-man show inside a salon. Everyone there is warm and friendly - very welcoming vibes. Chai has been doing nails for a long time and he will tell you if something won't look good! He is open to doing whatever you dream up, and responds well to inspiration photos. So nice to have a break from the huge bustling salons that churn em and burn em, and often leave you disappointed and wishing you could have your money back. If we lived in Dallas, you can bet Chai would be our guy.

    Listen Ladies, I found him right here on Yelp. After becoming very dissatisfied with the quality of nail work that I had been receiving, I researched Yelp and found Chai. I called him up based on the reviews and he lived up to the reviews. He certainly didn't disappoint and made my nails look spectacular. I have been getting rave reviews from friends and others every since he did them.

    Chai asked me about my preferred nail shape and he went to work from there. He actually took the time to shape my nails and I was literally shocked. He was patient, addressed my questions and offered professional advice.

    I am very picky about my nails, so my advice to anyone who is looking to get away from the herd/mill type nail shops, look no further. Chai is your man if you are looking for quality, satisfaction and professionalism.

  • *****

    Chai is great- very friendly. He was really infomative about Nexgen dipping powder, it was my first time trying it out. It turned out great. Chai also did my eyebrows, they also turned out great. I highly recommend Chai for both nails and eyebrows.

  • *****

    Detailed oriented, on point, keeps you coming back fir more...well worth the quality.

  • *****

    Since he has been doing my nails my hands are always on point

    On a business trip to Dallas stumbled across nails by Chai and I am sure glad I did.
    He did a wonderful job.
    He is very meticulous and cares about his clients.
    He is a very talented artist.
    I can't say enough good things about my experience.
    If you live in Dallas... Nails by Chai is a MUST!

    Chai was awesome! He took his time with my nails, hands and feet. I was amazed by his art work around his space, which explained why he did such a great job on my nails.

Omg the scrub massage is the best!!!! My nails are flawless as ever ...AGAIN!!! I swear he is the best of the best...don't believe me???? Give him a try...you will be hooked just like me!

  • *****

    This was my first experience with Chai and I was completely satisfied with the services rendered. He answered any and all questions that I had prior to confirming my appointment. I never felt like my services were being rushed because he took his time and made sure that I was happy with everything. I will most definitely be a repeat customer as well as refer my family, friends and colleagues. Thank you so much Chai for bringing your talents to Dallas!!

  • *****

    Tried this gem on Thursday evening. Parking is easy and convenient. Lots of colors to choose from for NexGen! The prices and service were excellent! I love my mani and pedi. Chai was awesome! Will definitely return!

  • *****

    I got a fill with gel and two fingers on each hand with a design... I loved the service and the time he put into making sure my nails were done how I wanted. The price is great as well! The pedicure was so nice. Focused on getting the dry skin off by touching it with his hand to make sure it was off. I am definitely impressed and I can honestly say I have found my nail artist.. been searching for one for a while. I hate going to the nail shop where there are many people there and they rush through your service. But Chai is not like that and he offers you a red cocktail that is so good lol. Thanks Chai! See u soon.

    Chai is amazing! :-) this is my new go to for nails. I got dip powder (coloring changing) and everyone has been complimenting me on how great my nails look.

  • *****

    Found Chai on here and my and my BFF walked in and he was willing and ready to do our hands and feet. He is one of the best nail techs I have ever had. If I lived closer I would come here every weekend!!! Gentle and good at what he does. PURE ART!!

    His spot is in the middle of a hair salon. Loved every bit of being in the establishment- clean, classy and professional. Would recommend him to anyone in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

  • *****

    I had to come back because his quality is just that good!! I had to make this move to get my nails done before I returned back home to Chicago

  • *****

    I found Chai on Yelp I'm not from Dallas and needed my nails done. He was Amazing and his team was very helpful they even helped me out with my baby. Everyone was so nice.

  • *****

    I found Chai on Yelp, hoping to find an independent nail tech I could rely on. The reviews are not inaccurate - Chai is a professional and an artist. My nails were his canvas and he was open to what I wanted, but I took his suggestions and I loved the outcome. Pricing was clear and on point, and my nails look fabulous for New Year's. I look forward to coming back for a pedicure and a new color - he's into the latest colors and trends. Great experience!

  • *****

    This is my first time seeing an African American male do nails. I must say he's extremely professional and on time I must add. He's very detail and competent. He has a gift in art and it is displayed in all his work. The place of business is very unique and comforting, I will be returning.

  • *****

    Great job!! I've found a new nail stylist!! Very friendly and could have a decent conversation!! Thanks Chai!!

  • *****

    I received the best nextgen/dipping powder manicure tonight, Chai is good at his craft! If you want someone that is gentle and fast, he's your guy!! I previously had nextgen nails that were botched by another salon in town and I'm never going there again, besides I've already made my next appt with Chai because he's awesome!!!

  • *****

    Bright my girl here and wow I was amazed at the level of professionalism and artistic work of the nail stylist and just the aura of the place. I think she found her new little piece of heaven

  • *****

    First off, i am very picky with my nails, and I have the terrible habit of keeping my dislikes to myself and then never going back to the nail salon. I've had several of those instances occur already, and I feel so blessed to have come across Chai on Yelp.

    He is a patient perfectionist who sees nails as empty canvases for art, and it really shows in his work. I've asked him to do different shapes which he has executed perfectly. I even asked him to do a subtle design on my ring fingers (something I never do). The first time didn't work out so well, even though it looked beautiful, because the rhinestones started falling off (Im not the most gentle with my hands - and I type all day long). Needless to say, Chai showed his professionalism by taking me in and fixing them and giving me a design that I absolutely love but never would have gone with. On top of it all he handed me a $10 bill and said it was the difference between both designs. I was in awe, you don't come across honestly of that extent very frequently.

    Highly recommend him for his talent, work ethics, and honesty.

    I have found my new nail tech. Chai is so nice and personable. And my nails look great for my interview!

  • *****

    Fantastic service!! Ladies this is the place for your mani and pedi. Brought my lady here right before going to Vegas and she couldn't be happier with the service and professionalism.

  • *****

    Omg he is AMAZING!!!! I found him and yelp and thought I would try it out he's officially earned another client!!!! My nails are beautiful and he is such a gentleman. True artist do your nails will always be fabulous. I can't wait to see what his mind had in store for my nails in the future. He also creates beautiful art work to take home. Like I said a true artist all the way around.... He can do your nails then turn around and paint a portrait of you . Keep up the good work!!!!! Can't wait until my next appointment. Oh yea he does take walk ins!!

  • *****

    Chai is really, really cool and does an awesome job. His work is efficient and flawless! Love him! Go and see him, you won't regret it!

  • *****

    Today was my first time meeting Chai, he is such a wonderful person and artist. Really excited to have found a nail specialist I can keep returning to!

  • *****

    Chai is by far the BEST nail tech i have EVER had!!! he is a natural artist who actually does real paintings and it reflects in his ability to paint nails! very pleased

  • *****

    Exceptional, precise, and detail oriented. He is located in a cozy area. Very nice. Great work. Also Trendy

    Chai did a very detailed job. My nails are flawless! His work area was clean and his products are quality. He also did a great job waxing my eyebrows. The wax was a good temperature and my eyebrows were clean and even. It was money well spent.

  • *****

    Absolutely the best nail experience I have had. Extremely professional and a talented individual! My first time I got something classy for a video shoot I was participating in that night. He did such an amazing job I treated my mom the next week. I get compliments on my nails even from other gentlemen. Any color option you could want he has. I'm on my second fill and the colors remain shinny and glossy for at least a month even if you work with your hands as a hairstylist like myself. Best investment in yourself you'll ever make!

    5 stars all of the way...

    I actually found this gentleman on Yelp because I had a HORRIBLE NAIL JOB DONE THIS PAST SATURDAY!!!! So I ran to Chai for help, and he not only fixed it he gained a new client!!!

    Chai is very professional, detail oriented, and a perfectionist! He aims very high to have his clients satisfied, he wants to know about YOUR LIKES so that he can make sure you leave with a smile.

    His styles are sooooo up to date...you won't find flowers or just lines on your nails like most salons (unless that is your style).....he has brought his expertise to Dallas and I am more than sure that he will do very well here!

    I am so glad I found him on Yelp!! I told him to book me at 3p every other week so you better get in where you can fit in!!! ((Smiles))
