Vy’s Nails – Earls Court Life
I am the pickiest when it comes to beauty treatments and so I count myself as a very lucky Earls Court resident who happens to have one of the best nail salons in London on their doorstep.
Vy’s Nails (pronounced Vee’s) occupies a small retail space whose previous incarnation seemed to be a tiny call centre cupboard on a converted raised-ground floor apartment on the Earl’s Court Road. It sounds awful, I know, and trust me when I tell you that it was then but it definitely isn’t now! And this is the key to Vy’s and Vy herself.
Vy took this tiny space and somehow rejigged it, tardis style. It is now sleek, clean and streamlined. Four pedicure massage chairs (thank god for these!) and six manicure stations with a further two nail drying stations at the back.
But the important part of all of this is that Vy’s Salon delivers one of the best mani-pedis in London. Seriously, even the die-hard New Yorkers who despair when they arrive on our shores looking for a proper nail treatment have come to love, and travel for, this unassuming West London salon.
You can get a traditional Mani-Pedi for £40 or upgrade to the paraffin wax treatment for an extra £10. They work with Gelish in a zillion colours and also have the extensions covered if you’ve bitten off all your nails like I have!
If Vy isn’t there herself then ask for Bin or Amy – although everyone is good here. And don’t forget to eat one or two of the amazing sweets up at the cash register. Sometimes I pop in to make appointments just so I can snaffle a couple of these down! And that little nugget of info might make me a greedy so and so, but I’m a greedy so and so with impeccable nails.Vy’s Nails 180A Earl’s Court Rd, Earls Court, SW5 9QG 020 7835 0492 Mon-Wed, Fri& Sat 10:00 am – 7:00 pm Thursday 10:00 am – 8:00 pm Sunday 11:00 am – 6:00 pm
