My gel manicure and pedicure was absolutely amazing! I arrived 15 minutes late and my manicurist still attended me with the nicest and friendliest demeanor. She really took her time and my manicure still looks perfect even now (2 and a half weeks later!). I really recommend this place.

Enjoyed my visit and pleased with my nails. Was a bit surprised though when another therapist brought her client into our small room to have her eyelashes done. Felt a bit awkward!
The manicure & pedicure was lovely, felt very pampered. Nice choice of colours to choose from too.
I probably would return to this salon for a mani/pedi & after seeing the finished eyelashes on the other lady, am intrigued in a full set of eyelash extensions now, especially if they're on offer

The therapist is very nice and friendly and the work she is doing is very good. I had the gel nails manicure and had them for a full 3 weeks period. Also the venue is very centrally located, just 5 minutes walk from Oxford Circus tube station.

I really like this venue, it is close to my work and the pedicure is very thorough. My feet always feel lovely after one of their treatments. The only downside is sharing the small room with an eye lash technician.

Egita was very professional and lovely to talk you. SHe made me feel completely at ease and asked in great detail the look I wanted and how to look after the eyelashes. I will definitely be returning to see her even without the vouchers as she was so good and made the whole experience relaxing

I had the 2 week Gelish pedicure with Karina. The Eyelash and Nail Lounge is in the basement of the Tanning Shop on Mortimer Street. My therapist lead me into the treatment room which was actually shared with another therapist doing lashes, separated only by a screen. The room was small and neon-lit so not exactly the most relaxing environment, it just felt very cramped. I was made to sit on an armchair and the pedicure was actually a "dry" one, i.e. no soaking in soapy water and no scrubbing as I have had before. Karina used some electric tools to get rid of the hard skin on my feet and toes rather than a hand file, not sure if they were as effective. She then tended to my cuticles and eventually painted my nails with Gelish polish. Finally she massaged my feet with some feet balm. I have no particular complaints on the treatment received, other than my heels are still quite hard. However the ambience wasn't very relaxing and I didn't feel very pampered, it was all rather clinical and not particularly luxurious. I guess you get what you pay for, I certainly wouldn't go there if I had to pay full price (which BTW is £35 and not £45 as stated on the Wahanda voucher page - I checked their price list while I was waiting!).

Lovely therapist, great results. Slight chipping after a week, but overall happy with the results. Would have liked a few more colour options, but she says this is being updated in the next few weeks. Would go back.

Really happy with the pedicure I had on Friday evening. I was running 10 minutes late and I called the therapist and she was still happy for me to come which was great - I was the last appointment of the day but she could have easily still said no. New polish options were great too, will definitely be using this place again.

There is a new therapist at this salon and she definitely knows what she is doing. I went for the Luxury Pedicure and she done a really good job. I actually ran out of time though so was unable to have my toes painted but that was my own fault for going during the day for a 90 minute treatment. Will definitely be going back - treatment was lovely.

While the room itself is a bit shady (one room in the basement of a tanning place that you share with someone else getting their eyelashes done), the therapist was great and did a great job. She really put effort in and I would say the quality of the treatment was actually better than what you'd get at some top salons. If only the room itself was better... But overall, would definitely recommend!

The manicurist was friendly. The pedicure was done well, including a scrub and foot care. The manicure with gel nails was excellent. I asked for French and was very impressed both with the initial finish and how they have lasted.

Very impressed with this small out of the way beauty spot - which I never knew was there. My therapist was friendly and I thought she done a great job of my nails, I will definitely be going back.

Fernanda was splendid in her job, efficient, fast and a proved to be a really nice person to chat with. Pedicure was done neatly, with OPI range to chose color from and was all done within an hours, just like stated. Above all, what a great value!

My two-week gel pedicure lasted 7 weeks with not a chip in sight, I was absolutely amazed. It probably would have looked good for at least another week or two, but I fancied a different polish. Had another pedi with regular OPI polish almost two weeks ago and again, no chips yet. Fernanda is super sweet and a real perfectionist. She's meticulous yet quick and I've honestly never been happier after a nail appointment. If it's true what someone said here about her going back to Brazil for good, I think I might just have to cry!

Really enjoyed my visit and so pleased with my nails, they look great. The nail and eyelash salon underneath the tanning shop really is a hidden gym and very nicely decorated. I opted for the 2 week manicure and it looks really nice, the therapist did a really great job!

I really enjoyed my treatment. Fernanda was really friendly and the nails were done beautifully. She did use the nail machine to file my nails which was fantastic and rare to find, which was vital for me as I have thin weak nails. Its such a shame that she is leaving, I hope the next technician would be just as good.

I went here to get a gel pedicure before I went on holiday.

The venue was centrally located and really easy to find. When I got there, I was to,d my the receptionist at the tanning desk to make my way downstairs. The waiting area was really nicely decorated and was very relaxing.

I didn't have to wait long at all for Fernanda to free up. I was offered a drink and made very comfortable in the super cosy chair that was available.

There was a good selection of colours available and Fernanda was friendly.

Overall she did a really good job of my toenails and they lasted for ages!

The only thing that surprised me was that I didn't get a foot soak or file, it was really only a polish. I have a lot of manis and pedis and this service is almost always provided unless specified.

One other thing to note is that the venue is very cosy! This didn't bother me, but the girl that was having her eyelashes done seemed a little surprised that someone else was in The same room, even though they do use a dividing screen to separate things.

The price point was fair and I would go back.

the therapist is very nice and professional,although the room is small and shared with the nail tech it is clean and comfortable and you are screened off if there is someone in the room.
she is very good at her job and good at explaining after care instructions etc.
spot on and a good find!
