There was a very interesting article, sorry cannot remember where I saw it now, speaking about how nail salons have and are still revolutionising the high street. Well I wonder if Berkeley Street in Mayfair is considered a High Street, but certainly Nails & Brows are both a much needed and welcome addition. It seems surprising the area does not have more so well done to Nails & Brows for opening.

As any regular followers of Gentlemans Butler will know we are keen supporters of Gentlemen caring for their hands and feet and are equally keen for Gentlemen to push the boundaries a little. Though nail art may raise an eyebrow in the boardroom on a Gent I am convinced that more adventure will be seen. Watch this space.

I immediately liked Nails & Brows for several simple but important reasons. It looks pristinely clean which for any salon is vital. In addition I loved the design. It felt it was a cross between a Primrose Hill artist’s studio and a chic Chelsea flat, in that everything has its place and has been well designed and thought through. In addition I was pleased to see the nail technicians using ergonomic seats to care for their backs. I would have preferred a slightly higher and soft seat for the manicure station but that was pretty much it.

I visited mid-afternoon during the week but overheard discussion about long opening hours and being open on the weekend, a great time for some preening said one cat to the other!!

My visit was for a Haute Manicure and Quick Fix Pedicure with paraffin wax, plus a brow tidy.

I sat down to have my nails perfected by nail therapist Agnes. A lovely well groomed lady who set to work with total diligence. All I did was natter and pass the time of day. I finished with a clear nail varnish.

Then onto the feet which is positioned to the rear of the salon, with very compact foot bowls that cleverly come out of the bottom of the thrown. I had a Paraffin wax which not only feels great but does soften up the skin, a good thing to do as we start the summer.

During this I met with the founder Sherrille Riley, who was at Daniel Hersheson’s Mayfair salon for 10 years and at Elizabeth Arden and Urban Retreat prior to that. Our conversation entailed discussing sprouting hairs for men, particularly of a certain age, and I have reached that age! and whether men should use clear varnish on their nails. In fact I use a pale pink on my toes as it just gives the nail a healthy glow. I was pleased to hear the ladies support as it really does make the nail look alive.

Sherrille Riley’s instinct and experience for achieving elegant, natural brows has won her plaudits from notoriously tricky-to-please beauty and fashion journalists and her work has regularly featured in Vogue, Glamour, The Times and London’s Evening Standard.

After this it was onto my brows for which the very talented Liga set to work using threading and great skill. For those Gents who have never seen this, google it as if nothing else it is very clever and extremely skilful way of removing unwanted hairs.
She was also particularly charming in saying how brave I was. I can just see all the girls reading this saying how useless fickle men are!!

I have no hesitation is recommending a visit. Whether a lady or gent, young or old they will welcome you I am sure with a smile and do a great job.
