Jetted off to London this summer? Seeking the city’s best manicure? In desperate need of a brow touch-up? Fear not, you’re in good hands.
In the heart of London’s Mayfair area, looking out onto Berkeley Street, you’ll find this elegant yet snug boutique salon. Despite its location in a notoriously upmarket district of the capital, the atmosphere within Nails & Brows' four bright-white walls is warm, relaxed and instantly homely and the surprising depth of the space helps create a sense of cosiness. Downstairs, you’ll find manicure and pedicure stations offering an array of different brands and colours to choose from - every possible shade of Deborah Lippman, CND Vinylux and Essie - and the upstairs floor houses a brow bar and massage room.
Nails & Brows
The brainchild of renowned celebrity brow connoisseur Sherrille Riley, the beauty hotspot enjoys a steady flow of loyal clientele - it’s popular among the fash pack, magazine editors, the affluent Mayfair community, and, it seems, royalty. It’s said that Meghan Markle is a familiar face at Nails & Brows, opting for the trusty ‘The Audrey’ brow style (Audrey Hepburn-inspired, naturally) - if you’ve always admired Meghan’s brows, you can get the look for £50 at this very salon. Or, for that matter, make any other bespoke beauty-related requests - expert staff and beauty specialists (selected by Sherrille Riley herself) are on hand to book you in for the treatment you didn’t know you needed.
Nails & Brows
If your nails are in need of some TLC, Nails & Brows offer equally exceptional hand and toe treatments. Both the boutique’s signature manicure and signature pedicure comprise an ultra-moisturising paraffin wax treatment, which makes use of the essential oils in hot paraffin wax to add some much-needed hydration to the whole hand or foot. If you’re really looking to show your nails some kindness, you can opt for the Margaret Dabbs pedicure, which exclusively uses products and treatments from the acclaimed beauty expert’s own range, or the Kure Bazaar manicure, which will refresh your talons with the French brand’s all-organic, nourishing collection of products. Many of the salon’s regulars opt for a smart mani/pedi package offer, which gives them four free brow treatments alongside four mani/pedi treatments. Came for a manicure, left with flawless nails *and* brows on fleek.
Nails & Brows is your one-stop shop - not only for nails and brows, but for waxing, lashes, facials and massage treatments too. If you’re staying in an adjacent Mayfair hotel, it’s the perfect excuse for some me time. If you’re passing through the area on a weekend whilst sight-seeing, I hear Saturdays are the prime time to visit.
