Professional background

Introducing Melania


I’ve always been fascinated by fashion and the beauty industry. However, it wasn’t until I was 20 that I had my first manicure! From that point, there was no going back: I was hooked. I went to a reputable nail academy in my country to learn the tricks of the trade, studied and practised relentlessly until I was fully confident and got qualified as a professional nail technician in 2017.

Melania Nail Technician's Avatar


I’ve had the pleasure to do many really interesting nail designs for truly wonderful clients. But I’m going to say that starting my nail business under the umbrella of Figaro London is the single most important highlight at the moment that I’m focusing on to make it a success. Ever since I started to work as a nail technician, I’ve always wanted to work for myself and run my own salon. This is as close to it as it gets.



One day, a client told me: “I bet in your previous life you were a surgeon. Because you’re so precise and meticulous.”
Clients always compliment my cuticle work. It’s true: I’m very precise, very thorough yet super careful. There have never been any injuries under my watch thanks to a special technique that I developed. And cuticle work is a super-important preparatory step that is crucial to get right for a good manicure or pedicure.



I love OPI which is the brand Figaro London uses. I also use some other brands and products occasionally for my manicures and pedicures such as CND or Gel Bottle which is an organic brand – currently, their BIAB range is my absolute favourite. But OPI is a trusted brand that I know delivers the results clients and nail techs expect.



“Enjoy every day like it’s your last, because one day, you’re going to be right.”

I went for a top notch pedicure (full pedi). It was my first time experiencing a dry pedicure and I loved it. Thank you again Melania for taking good care of me.

Perfect gel manicure. On time and very polite. Lovely experience and will book again next time with Melania.
