At the risk of sounding sexist, I think this is one for the ladies....so lads, look away now
Since I live in London, you would think that I would be spoilt for choice when it comes to a good place to get a decent and reasonably priced manicure?
To put it bluntly, you would be wrong.
I have lost count of the places I've been to that have ripped me off, done a 'gel' manicure that has come off in 2 days (having been advertised as a 2 week manicure) and (in one case) damaged my nails.
So, it gives me great relief to say that my search is over, and I have found the best place, right here in Ealing!
Bhavi Beauty are a relatively new salon in Ealing Broadway shopping centre (their entrance is in the covered bit opposite the back of M&S) and I have been there about 5 or 6 times now.
Every time I've either had a mani or a pedi - always gels - and every time I have walked away happy and with fabulous nails.
I wanted to share them with you as the quality is truly excellent and the prices are amazing - £30 to do gels on my hands and feet is the best price when I had been paying that for just my hands in Westfield.
There is always a good vibe to the place - the only problems are you have to try not to stare at the people having their eyebrows threaded (they are AMAZING at this too) and the massage chair is a bit overzealous for my liking, but if you're tougher than I am I'm sure it is effective even if it isn't very relaxing.
Lets face it, those aren't really problems are they?
Anyway, if you live in Ealing and want your nails done - give them a go!
