You can find everything from dramatic nail art to modest natural nails, ideal for any occasion or style. To help you choose, we’ve whittled it down to a small selection of our favourites.

Mobile manicure FAQs

All Urban pros are qualified in every treatment they offer. We check their experience, qualifications and kit to make sure you get beautiful nails at home, every time.

Nope! For nails, you just need a space where you can sit opposite your pro (ideally near a plug socket) as well as access to hot water for hand and foot soaks.

Your pro will bring almost everything needed to treat you safely at home, including salon-grade products, tools and a portable treatment table. For facials and pedicures, your pro will need access to a sink, and for facials you’ll need a couple of towels for the table.

Our regular Urban users say home nail treatments are even better than the salon as there’s no rushing for the tube, no waiting for your nails to dry, and no loud music or TV. But don’t just take our word for it, check out the 5-star reviews we get from Urban users across four cities every day.

With Urban, you can find therapists from London's best nail salons that are available to come to you at your home, hotel or even the office. We only partner with qualified, insured and quality-checked pros to deliver the best experience.
