    Awesome customer service, beautiful work, wide range of services available. The prices are worth it; you get what you pay for! I will definitely be coming back. I think I found my new spot! :)

  • *****

    Backstage has been my tried and true spot for months and I'm just remembering to write a review. Christina & her team are awesome, I've never had a bad experience. The space is cute,bright and impeccably clean. The tools are always sanitized and I've always felt like they take the upmost care with sanitation. I have been getting their European Gel for about three months. They are so precise and really dedicate their time to getting it right (Allow yourself 90 minutes to two hours to get a set done & fully dried). Lots of colors to choose from, friendly staff, a great business overall. I find the pricing to be completely reasonable as well.

    I had moved to the neighborhood and was in need of a new esthetician. I found Luliana at Backstage and will no longer go to anyone else! First of all her waxing services are amazing. She is so detail oriented and educates you on proper ways to maintain between appointments. She also offers a variety of facials and skin care treatments. I have only had one facial from her and I absolutely loved it. I will be booking another one soon! I would highly recommend Luliana to anyone looking for a well educated, professional esthetician!

    Thank you Iuliana for the best experience with you))) She is doing best wax service in town!Also I had chemical peel, and my skin looks amazing..Professional attitude and strong knowledge make me feel save in her hands)

    Since moving to Chicago a year and a half ago, I've been on the hunt for the perfect place to get my eyebrows waxed---I've been to Trim, European Wax Center, and a couple hair salons. After all this research, I finally found "the one"--- BackStage Nail & Spa's esthetician, Iuliana!!

    I have had my eyebrows waxed by her at least 5 times and I've even tried eyebrow tinting (she is great at this and I highly recommend it). I will not be leaving her! I HIGHLY recommend her, she is professional, always on time, informative, and great at what she does.

    Even though I have only had my eyebrows done, I hope to delve more into the skincare Iuliana provides in the future! Among other things, she does peels, facials, and sells a line of professional skincare called PCA. I've tried a couple products and they have been the only thing to begin to heal my dry skin.

    The gel manicure here is also the best I have had in the city! You can't go wrong!

    Just like everyone else, I was searching for a new nail place after moving to the north side from West Loop. I'm happy to announce my search is over! Katya is a professional perfectionist with an artful eye. My nails are flawless! If you go, don't forget to bring cash for your tip.

  • *****

    Ladies at BackStage nails are the best at what they do! I love that you can take care of all your beauty needs at one place. Juliana is amazing esthetician, Jenya will take care of you lashes and Zukhra can recreate any painting on you nails.

    Continue to do amazing work, and much success in the future.

    They always do a great job.

  • *****

    My Esthetician Iuliana is wonderful! Very knowledgeable about her work and has great recommendations for facial products and anything that goes along with healthy looking skin. Each time I leave the appointment feeling relaxed and happy. Come see her if you want radiant, healthy and glowing skin! Very talented and 5 star customer service!

    When it comes to nails these ladies are the best! I have been doing non chip manicure for years and recently found this place and can't be happier. Christina is very detailed and takes the time to make sure my nails look picture perfect. Kate did an amazing job with my ombr design. Not to mention each time they treat me with delicious tea. I guarantee if you come here you will not be disappointed!

  • *****

    Great place with quality service. All girls are very sweet and beautiful. I really enjoyed my manicure today. Zukhra did an awesome job! Thank you!

  • *****

    I know, it sounds impossible but believe me it's real!!
    6 weeks No-Chip Manicure by Rosa is still on my nails and it's still like new!!!Beautiful and professional work, Summer design.
    Thank you so much! Definitely recommend this place

  • *****

    By far the best eyelash extensions I have ever had! Evgenia is super sweet, and accommodating. She listens to your needs and wants and does exactly that! I get 3D/4D volume lashes. THEY ARE THE BEST! I go every 3 weeks and I could maybe even do 4 weeks, I'm too obsessed!! You gotta check her out!

  • *****

    Evgenia is the best eyelash maker ever! My lashes look very natural and bright. Also I wear them about 4 weeks minimum. Thank you for her very much!

  • *****

    I'll never go anywhere else! They are so friendly !

  • *****

    I found Backstage and Zuhkra from a woman whose nails I admired when she came into my job.
    I've been looking for a new place for my fills for 3 months... my search is over! I've also been settling for gel powder even though I know better.

    My nails looked horrible and I asked Zuhkra if she should do a new full set.

    "I can make them look new, you don't have to do a new set," she confidently replied.

    I said I wasn't picky and she said, "I'm picky,". A testament to her skills and commitment!

    Check out my pic!

    Went today. I think I've found my new nail place! Very friendly. EXCELLENT job on my nails and she took her time. I didn't feel rushed or like I was a bother. Place was very clean. I went for a no chip mani pedi. I wanted my nails to be a French looking manicure (with no chip polish) and I had no idea what kind of detail was involved. This shop rose to the occasion! I'm so happy with the finished product!!

  • *****

    I love love love love love this place! I work close by and visited there about 2 months ago to get a mani/pedi! Figured I'd get one done before heading back to Indiana (where I live). I was greeted immediately with a warm welcome and within the first minute or so, I knew this salon wasn't like most. The cleanliness along with the friendly staff and amazing products had me feeling like a million bucks! During my pedicure, Iuliana walked up to me and introduced herself. She was very soft spoken, sweet, and very welcoming. I was shocked to hear since I was a first time guest, I could receive an eyebrow or bikini wax, for FREE! I was excited since I was planning on going to visit my sisters in California that weekend! I've never received a bikini wax - always wanted to, so decided to choose that.

    Since this was my first time, ever, Iuliana explained everything about waxing. Explained hard wax vs soft wax, the different kinds of pain levels, items used during the waxing process and explaining that she has seen it all and there is no shame in any of our game. :) We are there to feel sexy, clean, & beautiful and she is there to do just that! :)

    I went from walking in the salon thinking I was going to get a mani/pedi to walking out with a full blown Brazilian wax. I mean all gone!

    I went there yesterday for my "second appointment" and again, such an experience. I have recommended her to every single friend of mine (men included)! She's great. Thank you Iuliana for making what I thought would've a terrifying experience one of the best decisions I've made! I will never go back to my old ways!Keep doing what you're doing !Thank you!

    Go visit her!

    You will NOT REGRET IT!

  • *****

    !NAILS! LOVED it!!! The girls are amazing! I read some bad reviews but I decided I would give it a try to No Chip anyways:) it was done perfectly and lasted for 3 weeks! Zuhra is the owner and she was the one who did my no chip and Christina did my pedi. Btw , girls do speak English ... not like in other places in the area lol I will definitely come back :)

  • *****

    I'm doing my nails only here! Love great job of Victoria and Katia!!! After their work my nails didn't get worst!!! Love the interior in side! All girls very polite and they know how to satisfy my wishes))) Defiantly will come again!!!

  • *****

    So far, the best nail salon I've been to. Clean, spacious, cozy. The instruments are always sterilized, in the sterile pack, which is opened right in front of you. The quality of work is great, considering the fact that my natural nails are very paper thin, no chip always lasts minimum two weeks. All the girls are amazing, very professional and passionate about their work. The esthetician lady is amazing too, she surely listens to you, and makes "I want", happen in the most professional way.
    All in all, the best place and team, to relax, take a breath and enjoy perfect result of work done.
    A bit of advice - don't consider bad reviews - simply because, you can't please everyone.

  • *****

    I go to Backstage for Iuliana. She is a wonderful aesthetician. She is very professional and passionate about her job. She is a skin specialist. Her waxing is impeccable and lasts for weeks. Her facials are a treat, and microneedling has been great for me so far. She offers packages so it is financially interesting. Her room is super clean and she is very pleasant.
    She used to work in another salon and I followed her to her new place, even if it is further for me. A+ for Iuliana

  • *****

    I absolutely love Uliana! She is very professional when it comes to skin care. The rest of the staff is very friendly too. I would totally recommend this place, it's a one stop shop. From waxes to facials and nails.

  • *****

    So happy I discovered this place. My nails are perfect, can't ask for more. Thank you, Zukhra for your great work!

  • *****

    IULIANA is the best esthetician I have ever met! She is EXTREMELY professional and really cares about what you need. I got my facial for the first time a couple of months ago and cant live without it now:) Iuliana always takes the time and effort to give the best care of my face; I already see how my skin got better. (Even my friends mentioned that)
    Also, she does the most PAINLESS Brazilian and cant wish for better eyebrows wax either! So, I would highly recommend her if you live in lakeview (or not). You will LOVE it!

    Can't write review for another time I have visited Iuliana' s spa. But , I will just add one thing :) I have tried Microdermabrasion AND Microneedling! LOVED it!!! After a couple of times , I feel like my skin got even better. Thank you , Iuliana for being the Best!

  • *****

    One of the most clean, nice and quiet places I've been so far! I didn't have to wait nor to explain a lot what I need it , everything was very quick and the girl who was doing my nails was so helpful showing me what's popular and what would look great for the summer. It was my friend's wedding and we had a small party at this salon , it was a very pleasant experience for both of us. I highly recommend this place if your looking for quality work and enjoyable experience !!!!! I'll definetly go back !!!

  • *****

    I needed beautiful nails in a pinch! I found this place via yelp, and I was not disappointed. Good prices, clean place, polite staff, and a beautiful finished product. I went in to get nail extentions and they're so nice! I messed up paint on one and they helped me fix it. Very accommodating. Would definitely go there again.

  • *****

    This is a very pleasant atmosphere to relax and pamper yourself. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. My nails never looked better. I choose the European Gel Mani and was not disappointed. If you pay with cash you get a small discount. I have an appointment to get a Pedi and I can't wait.

  • *****

    Went there today for a pedi and a no chip mani- was super clean and the service was meticulous....quiet and peaceful...very relaxing, will be back...

    just know, tips should be cash!

  • *****

    It's my first time getting my nails done in Chicago and she did an awesome job! If you are looking for someone to take their time to do a completely detailed, neat job then this is place to go. They're very attentive to what you want. I had a mani and no chip gel for $40. Worth every penny!

  • *****

    They do such an amazing job with detail and making your nails look perfect. So happy that I found them!

  • *****

    Evgeniia is the best lash maker ever! I got a 3D full set lashes. It's been almost 1 months and they still look incredible.

    This lash artist is very professional, very kind, who explains about this hard work, gives answers for all my questions.

    Evgeniia did an awesome job. Very clean service with high quality materials. I would definitely recommend BEST LASH MAKER in Chicago - EVGENIIA KOLOSOVA

  • *****

    Just got my no-chip mani done by Christine. OMG! I'm in love with her and Backstage nail & spa salon. Not only do they impeccable job, but also have lots of great colors. Will definitely be returning

  • *****

    I made my lashes for first time. And it was very hard to find really good professional in this area. My friend advised me a wonderful lash maker - Evgenia Kolosova.
    I was very lucky that I found her. It's highly skilled professional with many years of experience. I was pleasantly surprised that she uses the highest quality materials, after which my eyes wasn't red.
    I had my 4D lashes for four weeks and they still looked perfect. Thank you, Evgenia:)
    No more words, see and try it by yourself!

    great addition to the 'hood...

    not going to lie...i have my usual spot down the road. been going for years and felt like i was cheating on them. however, they were busy and basically told me to come back tomorrow (um, wish i had such a flexible schedule). so knowing this spot just opened and never appears busy (yet), i happily walked down the street and got one of the best mani's i've had in a long time. clean place with more vinylux colors than i've ever seen before. i missed the massages/massage chairs at the "other spot" but honestly, this could easily move up the ranks in my book specifically because they are much more detailed with their service.

  • *****

    I went for fist time on European style with fake gel nails... Victoriya made my nails and they last for whole month without changing or anything i was so happy never better experience!!! She is great artist for nails and I am coming back by her again!!
    Thank you guys you are the best!

  • *****

    Best quality nail art in the city!!

  • *****

    Love Iuliana! She always makes my eyebrows looks beautiful!! Got a facial this week and her products smell so nice, my skin looks great, and she delivered so much information to me on the products and my skin. Plus her little room is quite and very relaxing.

  • *****

    Iuliana is amazing! She has been doing my bikini wax and eyebrows for quite some time now. She is very quick and its almost painless. She uses amazing products too, from the wax to the facial. The facial was very relaxing and refreshing, cant wait to get another one

    She is very helpful, friendly and talented. Thank you for everything!

  • *****

    I love this place very nice and clean and the nail tech take her time with your nails to make sure there perfect

  • *****

    I have visited Iuliana last Saturday for a microdermabrasion along with mild chemical peel.
    I always wanted to have this procedure done and I am happy I finally did it.
    I HAVE NOT experienced flaking skin at all. Not sure if this is a good thing or bad. Maybe because she used a mild formula, being first time I have this done. My skin was a little red the next day but other than that nothing that I could complain about, considering my very sensitive skin.
    We will see next time how things will be, because I sure go back there.
    She is kind and always ready to answer to your questions with care and knowledge.
    Overall the texture of my skin is smoother and my skin is brighter. I am more than satisfied.
    Highly recommend her to everyone.

  • *****

    Was looking for great nail specialist who can come up with different design (something other than flowers!) and finally found one! Zukhra, you have me forever! Love my nails!!
    Got my facial done same day and also loved it. Iuliana thank you, hope my skin will like it and I will be your regular customer! :)

  • *****

    Loved it

  • *****

    Awesome atmosphere, perfect nails! I showed them a picture and my nails looked exactly like the picture! Love that it doesn't have the smell of most nail salons! Won't go anywhere else!

  • *****

    I love this salon. Iuliana is by far the best esthetician. I followed her here from another salon and I can say it was the best decision I could have made. I see her for everything, eyebrows, bikini, and underarm. The wax that she uses make for a pretty pain free experience, not to mention she makes what can be an awkward situation very comfortable. She honestly does the best job. I also went to her for a facial and I can say my skin felt great after, can't wait for my next one. Iuliana is very kind and helpful and never pressures you into additional procedures like at other salons particularly chain ones. She is also flexible with scheduling appointments and responds very quickly. I highly recommend coming her to see Iuliana.

    Also the last time I was in I was able to get a no chip manicure. One of the best I've had, it lasted 3 weeks and that never happens for me. I forgot the girl who did my manicure but both of the women that are there for nails are very nice.

  • *****

    IULIANA is the best esthetician I have ever met! She is EXTREMELY professional and really cares about what you need. I got my facial for the first time a couple of months ago and cant live without it now:) Iuliana always takes the time and effort to give the best care of my face; I already see how my skin got better. (Even my friends mentioned that)
    Also, she does the most PAINLESS Brazilian and cant wish for better eyebrows wax either! So, I would highly recommend her if you live in lakeview (or not). You will LOVE it!

  • *****

    When you get regular waxing (down there) ladies, you want someone with a quick hand, but you also need to feel like you are simply chatting with you girlfriend right? This is why I go to Iuliana. She is the most professional aesthetician I have ever had. Also, the spa is really lovely and the room is always the perfect temperature even during cold Chicago winter days.

  • *****

    I am very picky and was about to give up on getting manicures for a while, so I was very pleased to learn that BackStage Nail had opened in the fall. I know I can count on a high quality manicure here that will be beautiful and last a very long time.

    Zukhra does the best designs I've ever seen. On my birthday I said I wanted something a little sparkly, but not glittery, and not too sparkly, and kind of inspired by champagne bubbles and fireworks. Even though I was so vague, she gave me exactly what I wanted but couldn't articulate!

    I wish I could make an appointment by text or online, because I hate calling salons, so hopefully they will add that option soon. I guess I just need to make my next appointment before I leave the salon!

  • *****

    Zuhra and Christina are amazing!!! Impeccable European quality, thorough attention to details. Usually my no chip manicure last about 3 weeks. And I love that they are taking time to make everything perfect. Try them, toy won't be disappointed!

  • *****

    Zukhra did an amazing job! Best nail artist I've been to. I got European gel with no chip and it lasts forever! The french tip edges were so clean. Iuliana did a great job as well. I got eyelash and eyebrow tint and them waxed. She was very careful with the dye and made recommendations when I asked her questions. She pays attention to the customers wants and makes sure they get what they asked for.

  • *****

    I was there last week for a facial. Iuliana was my Esthetician and I want to tell you that she did an amazing job. She was very professional, explained every step of the process. Very nice, clean and relaxing environment. It was a pure joy, and most importantly I left with a super glowing skin. I will definitely go back to her.

  • *****

    One of the kind nail design ! Lasts for weeks ! They can recreate any type of design from Pinterest or your imagination. Very reasonable prices and great for special occasions.

  • *****

    Great place, doing my nails there every 2 weeks, non chip nails holds up to 3 weeks!!!! If you go there ask for Zukhra :) she does great nails. Service is A+++

  • *****

    It's a brand new business, we provide high quality services. Owners are experienced and very friendly)) new customers are always welkomed!!

  • *****

    Zukhra is great! I get European Gels with no-chip and it's always awesome. Her attention to detail is better than any other nail tech I've ever had. Place is bright and clean. Zukhra and Christine are both super nice and deliver quality service.

  • *****

    They do a wonderful job! They take their time and make sure you like what you get. My friend got a beautiful lace design on her fourth fingers and they looked gorgeous. I will definitely be back!

  • *****

    Great place, European style I really like this location. Ask for Cristina for an efficient work. She always pay attention to details and doing a great job. Best place with great service.

    Got my nails done at this salon. Super accurate and still in love with my nails. Thank you, Zukhra :)

  • *****

    Zukhra is the best nail artist I've ever had! You can literally bring any nail design to her, and she will do it. I literally drive to Chicago from WI every few weeks for her to do my nails.

  • *****

    Love everything what u r doing girls, u are the best!!! You make me happy every time when I come to your amazing salon. Five stars every time

  • *****

    I've been working with Zukhra and Cristina for the past year. They are the best nail artists, I would never go to someone else. My nails last for a long time and Zukhra does the best designs! The salon is clean and comfy.
