Oblique House of Nails : The Best Luxury Nail Salon in South Kensington


Since it opened in 2016 Oblique House of Nails  has been the name in every chic South Kensington resident’s little black book for everything beauty related. Oblique is an award-winning and unique nail and beauty concept that delivers client experience unparalleled in London, and covers every conceivable beauty need from head to toe. The team works tirelessly to ensure they deliver the most up-to-date, innovative, and proven beauty products and services that generate tangible results, with health benefits in mind. At the core of the Oblique philosophy is an appreciation that each individual client has requirements specific to them, and the key objective of Oblique’s staff is to use this knowledge to construct a caring, bespoke plan to achieve targeted results. Oblique’s highly trained team of professionals will gladly provide expert advice and tailor-made treatments with a very caring, customised approach that will leave you feeling truly pampered and revitalised.

Oblique Salons and Aesthetic Clinic offer complete make-over solutions for hands, feet, brows, and lashes, as well as make-up: the space transforms around each client to cater to their precise needs. Oblique offers simultaneous services with multiple therapists to save their clients’ time, and is also able to offer privacy in the luxurious private room. The tools employed are all subjected to stringent medical sterilisation protocols – health and safety is naturally a top priority. There is also Oblique House of Hair that does absolutely amazing cuts, colour and blow dries. 

The journey begins when you step inside the beautiful premises on Bute Street, South Kensington. The chic grey, emerald, and gold accented décor and cosy atmosphere immediately engender a sense of comfort and relaxation. I experienced a truly exceptional manicure and pedicure with two of Oblique’s highly trained therapists, Kristina and Karina. With Karina working on my toes, and Kristina on my hands, the efficiency of both procedures was breathtaking: I was ready to go in under one hour, with an immaculate manicure on my hands and perfect pedicure on my feet. I have had numerous manicures in my life, but never had my nail polish applied with such precision as it was at Oblique House of Nails. Even the base coat was applied with a very fine paintbrush, rather than a regular polish brush. The pedicure involves dead skin removal, a very satisfying foot scrub, and a luxurious, wish-it-went-on-forever foot and lower leg massage. Afterwards, my feet felt several pounds lighter, and, with a pop of red on my toes, ready for the October half-term getaway! 

As a South Kensington resident, there is nowhere else I would go for a mani-pedi: Oblique simply delivers the highest levels of customer care and results in a warm and luxurious atmosphere.
