Not the best pedicure I've had sadly. The person who I was booked with was given to a last minute walk in just before I walked through the door. I was 5 minutes early too! I ended up with another girl who was quite brisk and curt. She hacked at my cuticles and although the massage was nice I was only given a short 25 minutes instead of the full 45 I was due and the paint job was average at best with several smudges I had to fix at home. The girls chatted amongst themselves rather than engage with any of my comments. Meanwhile the lady who had taken my slot was being asked if she was ok, offered drinks and was still being given her pedicure when I was ushered upstairs! I was shown to the waiting area and left with no direction on how long to wait. How do you know this isnt my first time getting a pedi?!? The girl then promptly left the shop to get her lunch without saying goodbye or offering to take payment. Had I not been unable to leave through fear of smudging my nails I would've just walked out! When I finally just got up to pay I had to ask for my mailing discount and decided not to leave a tip. Not overly impressed with the professionalism or quality. I think it must be hit and miss thought because the lady that took my booking seemed to be ok!

Manicurist was very rude and did a terrible job; did not even remove my previous shellac polish completely, before putting on the new varnish as well as leaving plenty of skin around my nails. When I went back the next day pointing out how you can see the old nail varnish under the new she was extremely defensive and made a half attempt to 'fix' it. Definately will never return.

Highly disappointed, very expensive for poorly painted nails. And like another reviewer I have found the skin around my nails peeling. Moreover I was cut not once but twice during my manicure. Even though I did not complain my biggest problem was the fact that instead of saying sorry, this was turned around onto me and I was informed this was my fault because I had left it too long since my last manicure. Now the base of 2 of my nails look horrible and black from however they cut me. I'm ashamed to show my nails because I am embarrassed at how much I pay for nails that look like they were painted 4 weeks ago and have dry skin all around them.

Truely the worst manacure I have ever had!! had to go home and re-file all the rough bits off, surly staff (and manager) to boot. Shame as it could have been so handy!

It was awful experience for me, it seem that the lady was doing my nails didn't have enough experience. My manicure in the end was horrible I could do myself a better job probably. It's not what I have expected from professional:(


The problems:

It is overpriced - you can get the same long-lasting pedicure less than half a mile up the road for £10 less - and with a smile!

The girl doing my nails was unbelievably rude.  She kept shouting at her colleagues for things she needed (having not set up properly before sitting down to do my nails).  This included her barking at the receptionist for a cup of water - without offering me one.  I was put sitting in the reception area for my pedicure alongside people who were waiting for their appointments.  There was no space for my bag, which was treated as an inconvenience caused by me.

I had Two weeks to Tahiti - which on the website is said to include a massage.  There was no massage - just a 30-minute stressful experience never to be repeated.

Do not go here - it is a waste of your money.


Must say I am very surprised by bad reviews. I have been here a few times as work near by. Always found the staff friendly and chatty and the manicures look great and last well. Excellent choice of colours / products available and the loyalty scheme is good.

I went to the one in Spitalfields and thought the Salon was great. However the day after I had my nails done the skin started peeling down the tips on my fingers. I spoke to a friend who's a beautician and she said this was because they had not just cut the cuticles but the skin around it. really not what i would expect from a professional manicure. i went in to see the manager but was told she wasn't in that day but they apologised profusely and promised she would call the next day. well that was five days ago and i'm still waiting! i'm afraid its a classic case of image over substance and although i appreciate it may not be reflective of all the staff there it shouldn't have happened and I would have thought being a new salon they would have taken it more seriously as i work in the area in a an office full of women and will not be recommending to any of them. MW Nails maybe you should pay more attention to the quality of service rather than the quality of decor if you want to get people coming back to you

At last - a nail bar with real vintage glamour! Fantastic treatments that really last, staff that really go the extra mile in helping you choose the perfect colour and an achingly cool interior. It’s Pan Am meets Farah Fawcett sipping a Cosmopolitan whilst listening to Diana Ross, glamour all the way! The perfect place to get you in the mood for the office Christmas Party. I’m already planning my “Jamaica Gel” in time for New Years Eve. Hurrah for MW Nails!

I visited MW nails with a girlfriend for a pedicure. The place is a scream, so much fun, we felt like we were going on holiday. The manicure stood up to four weeks sandal wearing (it was early September) and lots of admiration and comments. Hope to get a visit in before Christmas.

I have had acrylic nails for going on 25 yrs so understand just how fussy I am about them!! It has taken sometime finding a new salon after the lady who did my nails for for 14 years moved to another country and a big Thank you to Timeout for rating this Salon more than met my expectations. The technician was outstanding and the environment fabulous. I would happily recommend this salon to all my friends - something I would only do if 100% confident.
