Leopard Lovin' with WAH Nails

Monday, August 23, 2010

I was treated to a quick nail makeover by WAH Nails over the weekend and I love the design so much I though I'd do a quick post on it.

Since its launch last year, WAH Nails has gone from strength to strength. Founded by Sharmadean Reid, 25, she's already secured a contract with Topshop, replacing nails inc which has guaranteed her nail art creations adorn the talons of fashionistas, teens and celebrities alike.

My nails were painted with Essie Chinchilly and the leopard print design was created with the use of a thin tipped nail art pen. The design I chose will set you back £20.

Now although a top coat of Seche Vite was applied to dry and seal my nails as a finishing touch, the polish has worn away a little and it's only been on three days, which is a little disappointing. This was a really quick mini manicure I had, I didn't have my cuticles pushed back, which I assume wouldn't have been the case had I been at the salon paying for a full manicure, so focusing on just the design itself, I'm pleased. This is my first experience of nail art, I've never been one to go for wild and wacky designs in the past and I tend to play it pretty safe. It only took 15 minutes (if even that) for the design to be painted on, which is great news for those often pushed for time.


You can visit WAH Nails at the flagship Tophop Store at Oxford Circus, where they're located in the basement or you can visit the salon based at 420 Kingsland Road, Dalston in  East London.

Oooh, love the black against the "muddiness" of Chinchilly!
They definitely did a great job, leopard is always a classic when it comes to nail art!!!

Thanks for you review! Although we dont include cuticle treatment in our nail art prices, we do shape and buff which is classed as a mini manicure and in most places costs extra! Glad you like and hope to see you again soon!

Konad is great, but nothing beats someone else doing your nails...

I saw a girl on the tube with the same design on her toes it looked so cute, I was wondering how I knew you would have the lowdown!

Celia said...

I love their site but geez... for that price, they should've given a more thorough mani. personally, i rather do my own nails but i dont have the extensive nail polish collection to go insane.
