Harriet Westmoreland

Another A-list favourite, and an OPI brand ambassador, Harriet Westmoreland is self-taught – she was inspired to go into nails after watching her grandmother painting her own at home. Years later, requests started flooding in from friends and she eventually worked her way into some of London’s top nail salons. Most recently, she’s worked with Hailey Bieber and flew out to Marbella for Sophie Habboo’s wedding.
