I visited the salon for the second time to have my nails done for me and my bridesmaids in early May. Helen was brilliant in getting us all booked in and checked with the owner to see if we could bring a bottle of Prosecco make it a bit more special. This was no problem at all and we had a wonderful few hours with the salon girls getting pampered with some fizz. The staff are all wonderful and I would highly recommend. Will be back next time I need gel nails.

Overwhelmingly grateful to Gabby, Kurt and Arthur for saving me. I couldn't be more pleased with the results from Martin and Phelps or more relieved that they managed to fix me. My hair Angels!
