I seem to have a really bad habit once a year of getting nail extensions, I resist them all year and then near my birthday I cave and have them on for a couple of months then January arrives and I swear never to have them done again. Well a few weeks ago I caved; unfortunately after two days of having them two nails snapped clean off whilst putting on my socks as you can imagine I was a little peeved, thankfully I had a nail appointment in London a few days later and the lovely Jade Angel at Czaro salon moved a few appointments around for me so she could apply a new set.
The salon is just behind Oxford Street so in a fantastic location if you fancy some pampering whilst in London as it is so conveniently located, the atmosphere is fantastic and I had such a warm welcome which was just infectious. Having had a bit of a bad day being poorly in Central London it was exactly what I needed and everyone was so lovely and interactive both the staff and fellow clients. The lady before me had the most amazing nail art done by Jade (The gold leopard print above) and Jade very kindly recreated it on my ring fingers to go with my black manicure (Liquorice by Essie).
As for the extensions they were perfectly done, I usually ask for them longer than I actually want so I can file them down to my taste at home (anyone else do this?) but I took a chance and let Jade do her thing as she expressed extensions were her passion and I'm happy to say her experience in the field really shone through and I loved the end results from the shape, length to the actual manicure and care at which she applied the polish and held me hostage until they were thoroughly dry.
I very much recommend the salon if you're looking for a treatment in central London at very reasonable prices. It was a pleasure to visit and it is lovely when you meet someone who loves what they do for a living and puts you at complete ease, the salon has a 5 star rating on Wahanda (Link) and they have their website if you want to see what services are on offer and a price list (Link).
