Best London pedicures
Give your feet a treat at one of these excellent pedicure spots
Holiday looming? Scared to wear sandals? Get your feet up to scratch with the recommended filers, buffers and painters in our list of great London pedicures for all budgets.
Watch 'Sex and the City' on the box while your feet are softened with hot wax booties, (more pleasant an experience than it sounds) then filed free of dry skin, lumps and bumps. Skilled therapists offer a perfectionist's finish, with a whopping choice of fruity summer shades applied deftly and quickly. Choose from a vast array of particular pedicures - from an express 30 minutes file and soak service to the works; a £75 'heel'-lelujah!' pedicure which includes an oatmeal bath soak, callus-eliminating foot mask and massage, plus polish.

Pedicures range from £40 for a basic tootsie sort out to £175 if you want a full podial overhaul from Mrs. Dabbs herself.
