The buzz
Sophie Gass is not your ordinary nail salon. In fact, you would be forgiven for mistaking it for a minimalist Scandinavian boutique or interior design shop. It’s only a stone’s throw from Holland Park station and the busy shopping vibe of Notting Hill and Kensington. Upon entering this white haven you are greeted by beautiful floral displays and unique costume jewellery that are for sale. You can also find sophisticated fashion pieces designed by no other than Sophie herself. The friendly nail technicians will offer you a choice of drink while showing you through to the comfortable seating area where you can find magazines and iPads, all for your comfort. The salon has a full range of Essie and Shellac products on display, making the possibilities endless.

You will find that Sophie Gass has some of the most friendly and experienced nail technicians on-hand that will not only turn your polish selection into a flawless manicure and pedicure, but also advise on nail health and care. The result is meticulously groomed and flawless nails – every time. As for your mind, you will be so relaxed that you will want to overstay your drying time and enjoy another cup of tea.

Best for
Those who are looking for complete relaxation in style. This is more of a Spa environment than a nail salon. Go with a friend or go alone and enjoy some “me time”.
