HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Spring is here, and it's time to get your fingers and toes ready for warmer weather!

We asked ABC-13 viewers for their favorite nail salons around town. When we asked for your favorite place to get pampered, we expected to get dozens and dozens of different responses. Surprisingly there were a few extremely popular nail salons with very loyal followings.

VH NailSpa

6606 Irvington Blvd - Houston

We heard from women that drive from all over the greater Houston area to see Van and Helen and the staff at VH NailSpa. We also heard from dozens of people that have stayed loyal to VH NailSpa for over 15 years. One of the most unique things about VH is that no children are allowed in the salon. If you're looking for a child-free place to unwind, pay these guys a visit! You cannot make an appointment, and viewers say it is always busy, but when it's your turn, it's all about you! If you'd like to try and beat the crowd, they open at 6 a.m. on Saturdays.

Cinderella Nails and Spa

1849 Pearland Pkwy Suite 104 - Pearland

If you're closer to Pearland, check out Cinderella Nails and Spa. One of the perks we heard about over and over was the bar with complimentary drinks. Doesn't get much better than that! There are also couple's chairs so you can bring your Prince Charming in for a mani/pedi too. Viewers say you always leave feeling like a princess!

Sky Nail Salon

2111 Spring Cypress Rd. #50 - Spring

When you walk into Sky Nail Salon, there's always someone greeting you at the door and offering you a snack and a beverage. Viewers say this place goes the extra mile for sanitary conditions. Alos, we heard from multiple people that the technicians take their time and don't rush through you to get to someone else.

VIP Nails and Spa

5233 Fairmont Pkwy. #D - Pasadena

VIP Nails has over 2,000 color powders and gel colors to choose from. The beautiful salon has long rows of pedicure chairs to keep the wait time to a minimum. They also offer great promotions for their fans on social media.

Venetian Nail Spa

138 Vintage Park Blvd Suite F - Houston and 2643 Commercial Center Blvd - LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch

There are two Venetian Nail Spa locations to choose from - one in Vintage Park and the other at LaCenterra. Viewers say both are very clean with beautiful dcor and that the staff takes extra measures to sterilize the utensils and foot tubs. Comments suggest that the staff really tries to get to know their regular clients.

Marquee Nail Bar

3149 Silverlake Village Drive Ste #104 - Pearland

Marquee Nail Bar is one of a kind - they have a full service bar and a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights. They also have some of the cheapest prices we found online at $20 for a pedicure and $12 manicures. They are also one of the salons with over 2,000 powders and nail colors to choose from.

Gossip and Co. Nail Spa

7751 Barker Cypress Rd, Suite 700 - Cypress

The display of polishes in Gossip and Co. looks like an Ulta store! Any color you want, they'll have. Viewers say the salon is exceptionally clean with some of the friendliest staff around. There is also complimentary wine to enjoy while you're getting pampered.

LV Nails

12406 S Kirkwood Rd - Stafford

Several viewers raved about how clean LV Nails keeps the salon, including using plastic liners in the bowls. Viewers told us that after nine pedicures at LV Nails, you get one free.

Isle Pedi

There are three Isle Pedi locations in Houston to choose from - Memorial, West U, and West Ave. A pedicure at Isle is $43, but viewers say you get what you pay for. Some of the perks at these salons are the herbal neck wraps and essential oils, private alcoves and TVs, and they give you a take-home file and cuticle stick.

Citrus Nail Spa

174 Yale St Ste #1100 - Houston

Citrus Nail Spa in the Heights ensures all the staff have a minimum of 4 years experience to give the best services possible. They take appointments and they'll serve cocktails when you get there!
