About the boutique
A visit to La Beau is such a treat.
Since September 2008, our nail boutique in Peverell, Plymouth, has been delivering red-carpet-ready nail treatments to local residents and a few celebrities, too. Led by Claire Thomas, the salon is known for its friendly atmosphere and welcoming tranquility, as well as its host of refreshing, reviving treatments.
We've even been awarded the title of 'Best Manicure in the South West' by Grazia magazine.
The friendly La Beau team is packed with endless talent and skill to get you looking your best, and our opulent, shabby chic boutique has been carefully designed to make you feel extra special.
So come and see us! Half the fun of going out is in getting ready.
Using mainly brown organic henna, our talented henna artists are able to offer small to large designs. You can even design your own bespoke henna tattoo on consultation. See some of our previous work below to get a taste of what we can do.

Meet the team
La Beau Girl Claire
I've owned La Beau for seven years and have been qualified as a nail tech for 10 years. I get massive satisfaction from running my own business, plus I love being able to source new products and identify new trends. I pride myself on my 'old skool' French manicure acrylic nails, love cool nail art and can't get enough of bright fluro Shellac! One of my most memorable moments has to be when we had Paloma Faith and the band Blue visit the salon. We all had so much fun and it generated some great publicity for La Beau. I am extremely proud of all my staff and being the owner of one of Plymouth's leading nail salons. I'm really looking forward to seeing what my team and I can achieve in the future.
La Beau Girl Jodie
I'm Jodie and I'm a Junior Nail Technician at La Beau. I'm also a part-time barmaid and an illustration graduate. I began my training two years ago and it was the best decision I've ever made. I'm now a fully qualified nail tech with next step beauty. I passed a CND conversion course and now have a whole year of salon experience within the lovely setting of La Beau. When I find free time from all the above, I tend to relax with a glass of chilled wine! I get hooked on way too many TV series, indulge in all my guilty food pleasures and set myself little side projects that involve a fair bit of creative play.
La Beau Girl Billie
Hi I'm Billie. I have an A level 2 NVQ qualification from Saltash College (2011) and in 2013, I took the CND conversion course for a bit of a boost. I enjoy working at La Beau as I know we provide a friendly atmosphere for our lovely clients. I work in the salon five days a week: three days on nails and two days on reception. I love not knowing what your next client's going to ask for - there is no better feeling than overcoming a challenge! I always look forward to meeting new clients and of course seeing our regulars.
La Beau Girl Ellie
Hey! I'm Ellie. I work as an apprentice in the salon - and I love every minute of it! I am currently studying for double business and finance A levels while working two days a week at La Beau. I have wanted to do nails for as long as I can remember and am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of ladies. I'm really looking forward to my future with La Beau and gaining more skills and experience. I'm very proud to call myself a La Beau girl!
La Beau Girl Kelly
I'm Kelly but most people call me Shents, I've been working in the nail industry for 21 years. Over the years, trends have changed and it's important to move with them, ensuring you never stop learning! I love trying out new products and techniques. I'm a traveller, former tattooist and nail artist. I work part-time as a session nail stylist in London. This involves working on exciting editorial shoots for major fashion magazines, as well as working with celebrities, behind the scenes at London fashion week and on television sets. I'm obsessed with my job!
La Beau Girl Kerry
I am Kerry and very proud to have been a La Beau girl for just over five years now. Originally self-taught, I soon became a fully qualified nail technician in CND liquid and powder (acrylic) and CND brisa gel. I love my job and the new challenges it brings every day. I particularly enjoy creating beautiful nail art and henna designs. I personally feel it's so important that we tend to our nails: we look at them every single day and when they look pretty, it makes us happy! It's an incredibly fulfilling, satisfying and rewarding job. I look forward to seeing my clients' happy faces every day.
La Beau Girl Liv
My name is Olivia and I started working at La Beau as an apprentice four years ago. Over the past 18 months I have gained my CND in acrylic liquid and powder. My skills have grown so much over the years and have learnt more exciting techniques such as nail art. I really love it when clients suggest new and fun ideas to try out! Whether I'm seeing new or regular clients, my favourite part of my job is seeing the before and after. Plus I love seeing how happy the client is with the finish. That really makes my job worthwhile. I wouldn't have gained so much knowledge if it wasn't for the support of the other La Beau girls! We've all built good friendships and are always there to give each other a helping hand. I wouldn't work anywhere else!
La Beau Girl Nikki
Hi I'm Nicola. I've been a CND nail tech for 14 years! I find great job satisfaction not only in creating lovely nails but in meeting some lovely ladies every single day. Thee of my regular clients have become great friends of mine. I owned my own salon for two years before I became a mum to my two boys (and gained a pretty hectic life in the process!). I've never felt more comfortable in life then where I am right now. I think I have the balance just right!
