Highest Quality, Most Knowledgeable, Safest, Cleanest, and Kindest Nail Techs Available, Then You Should Go To Lydian. 

Lydian Flash has earned my first Yelp review. If you are looking for an experience  where the entire time you feel and know you chose one of the highest quality, most knowledgeable, safest, cleanest, and kindest Nail Techs available, then you should go to Lydian. 

She is a one-person operation in a small studio and you get her 100% attention and a very well controlled and maintained environment. You should not go if you are looking for a quiet beautiful spa atmosphere experience. She warns you herself, she is an educator (and a storyteller) and she talks the entire time. (No exaggeration). And the room is all business no frills. But I came to her for a toenail reconstruction not a spa experience so it was perfect for me. She really takes the time to educate you on everything she's doing and answers any questions you may have at length. You walk away feeling like you have a window into the other side of the veil of Nail Salon professional presentation from an expert's point of view. 
As for her obviously high caliber skills, she did meticulous work on me, explaining every step so that I can take proper care of my new toe nails. She built the product up in thin careful painted on layers. The end result is fantastic! I love it! She made me feel comfortable the whole time. Her handling and manner is neither forceful nor timid. She takes her sweet time -which is awesome unless you have to be somewhere- and she gets it right. And she's such a sweetheart. She even gave me a bonus nail polish at the end because she "wanted me to look down at my toes and smile". 
If you are curious about toenail reconstruction and the barefoot procedure, please call or write her and ask her questions. I did my thorough research before going to her. Only she and one other woman either of us knew of do this work in the Austin area. And the two of them are friends. 
I didn't even know that as a significant side benefit of the continued treatment , my toenail could start to grow normal on its own! She showed me before and after of a clients that had been with her for years and gave me a realistic chance at hope for nail Rehab. 
I've been wearing my new nails few a few days and went to my first yoga class in years where I didn't feel embarrassed to be barefoot. I'm so happy! Thank you Lydian.

Review Included the photos.
This service was Just for the Reconstructions.
She will be back for her check up in 4-5 weeks and will get a pampering pedicure then.

Best Nail Care I Have Ever Had!

My nail tech for 30 years went nuts and ditched me yesterday. I spent hours on the internet trying to find what I wanted ( small salon, natural nails only etc) I finally called Lydian and was lucky she had a cancellation for a mani-pedi. It was the best nail care I have ever had! I'm a retired flight attendant and have had my nails done all over the world! Lydian is an expert on everything nails! In addition she's such an enjoyable person to be around! Also her foot massage is amazing!

Went to Lydian for IBX Treatments after damage (at another salon)

This lady knows and loves her job! I went to Lydian for IBX treatments because I finally grew out my nails after years of biting them, but they are so brittle and damaged from SNS that I break them easily. Lydian spent 2.5 hours repairing them with IBX, covering them with shellac, and giving me advice on how to break my habit and keep them growing. She explained things every step of the way on what she's doing and how I should be caring for my nails growing forward. She also does a great job of keeping a log of everything that was done and discussed so she can personalize each session. I would definitely be going back!

Knows So Much About Nails - She's like A Nail Doctor

Lydian knows so much about nails. She's like a nail doctor. She also carries a treatment called IBX that doubles the thickness of your nails, which I'd never heard of prior to meeting her.
