Lounge lover

I don't come across many luxury salons that are dedicated to nails alone, so Tillie's Nail Lounge in London's Little Venice is a real find. Owned by nail lover Tillie Fredericks and managed by nail pro Shreen Gayle who's worked for some of the industry's finest, the salon has only been open four months but is already a staunch for its loyal clientele. Inside, the French country-inspired d├ęcor provides a relaxing backdrop for its services with antique furniture, whitewashed floorboards and fresh lilies. The menu includes a variety of treatments including luxe manicures and pedicures as well as enhancements; I went for a Shellac Manicure which offers flawless nail colour that stays chip-free for two whole weeks. Best of all though, after you've finished, you can help your nails dry with a walk along the canal which boasts some of the capital's most beautiful waterside views. Bliss. 

Tillie's is open from Tues to sunday with late appointments on Tues, Weds and Thursdays. Prices start at £15 for a hand shape and paint. Tilliesnaillounge.com
