When your nails look fabulous – polished, long and sleek – it takes your confidence to a new level. It doesn’t matter if your hair’s perfectly coiffed and you like your outfit. If you have all that and bad nails then you just don’t feel dressed up enough.
The smile on the face on the picture below that was taken at a birthday meal in London’s Buddha Bar came from knowing that I had magnificent nails.
As I clutched the following day’s coffee curing hangover, I couldn’t stop admiring my nails so I took a close-up photo:
The man responsible for this fine work on my nails is Jason Tran from View Beauty Lounge in Brentford. When I first visited them in the summer of 2016, I was a new mum who hadn’t had a professional manicure for weeks, maybe even months.
As my nails weren’t that strong due to all the hormones in my body still crazy after having a baby, I wasn’t sure if I could have acrylics straight away so I booked in for a shellac appointment. While I was having that appointment, I got talking to Jason and I have never met someone so knowledgeable about nails in my life! A’list celebs like Adele visited the salon in South Kensington where he worked previously and now he’s bringing that celebrity buzz to Brentford. And the shellac looked very pretty too…
What’s different about View Beauty Lounge to other salons is that they make you feel special. They greet you with a warm welcome, the place is clean and comfortable and you feel relaxed and calm when you’re sitting inside. I’ve visited salons where you’re crammed inside with lots of others and have to wait ages for an appointment and I’ve been to salons where the manicurist couldn’t speak English which made the hour in the nail chair very boring indeed. At View Beauty Lounge you can book appointments online and you’re guaranteed a good chat while you’re having your nails done. If you don’t believe me, then look at all the positive reviews on Treatwell.
It’s a gorgeous-looking salon – light, airy and with views over a luscious park.
But what else would you expect from a beauty salon of such a high standard? I’m constantly impressed when I look at Jason Tran’s Instagram account – Jastra91 Here’s a selection of some of his most fabulous work:
What Jason doesn’t know about nails isn’t worth knowing so if you’re going to trust your hands to anyone then it should be him!
Another benefit of the View Beauty Lounge is that they offer waxing and hair treatments in the same place – it’s a one-stop shop for all your beauty needs.
