Looking for a bespoke & creative pop-up nail bar concept for your next event or party?

Nails in need of TLC, but too busy to visit the salon?

You’ve come to the right place!

Nails by Mets was founded in 2010, born out of a desire for a professional, high quality and creative mobile nail service. Since then, Nails by Mets has provided a convenient mobile nail service for all across London. Leading the way for mobile nails on demand, Nails by Mets prides itself on exceptional customer service and treats each client as the individual that they are.

We carry out an in-depth nail consultation, as standard, to give you a fully customised nail service and we focus on quality over quality. We can visit you in the comfort of your own home, office or hotel – perfect if you’re travelling into London or if you’re not a fan of nail bars.

Nails by Mets also has a wealth of experience in pop-up nail bars and we have provided mobile nail technicians and nail artists at festivals, in high street stores, shopping centres and exhibitions throughout the UK. We have had the privilege of providing pop-up nail bars for brands such as Disney, Marks & Spencer, Yamamay, Ted Baker, MTV, River Island, MAC Cosmetics and more!

About Metta

I’m Metta “Mets” Francis, a multi award-winning London based nail technician/artist and the founder of Nails by Mets.

My passion is creating beautiful nails, one mobile manicure at a time!  I absolutely love designing and painting nails that reflect personalities or event themes – from crazy, colourful nail art to a flawless nude or red manicure.  My ethos is to treat every client as an individual, educate clients on healthy nail care and give people the luxury of time and convenience.

Rest assured you will be in the best hands during your mobile manicure and pedicure treatment. I have trained to the highest level as a natural nail technician – I am a CND® Master Painter and possess a Harmony PhD in Gelish® Soak Off Gel Polish.

You can be confident your events are in safe hands with me and the Nails by Mets team – I am highly organised and have years of experience in project and events management from my previous career in I.T.

I’ve worked with amazing brands like GLAMOUR and The Disney Channel to create nail art tutorials and my nail handiwork has been published in Stylist magazine, Glamour Germany, Vogue Ukraine and more. My nail designs have also graced the catwalks of London Fashion Week and I’ve worked at Paris and Milan Fashion Week.

In 2018 I won the Best Mobile Nail Artist award at the Greater London Enterprise Awards and I was awarded the Scratch Stars Awards for Mobile Nailist of the Year in 2015 and 2017.

I can’t wait to help you with your nails or next event, so get in touch today!
