WAH Nails, a London based institution, brought their salon to Paris this past Fashion Week. Their pop-up shop, housed in the lobby of the new W Hotel was the perfect pit stop between shows, giving girls... and guys that extra hype hype for the week. The WAH girls were taking requests from love confessions to smiley faces, adorning the nails of the equally fashionably insane. 

"It's really fun for us, we show up at a party and everyone has crazy good nails," explained WAH founder Sharmadean Reid. Rather than being backstage, the WAH team is up front.

Back in 2008, Sharmadean had had enough bad nail salon experiences. She and her friends had been sporting nail art for years and she had a feeling it was bound to go mainstream. And mainstream it did. After opening the salon in 2009 in east London, WAH nails has had an explosive affect on popular culture and nails alike. 

Bringing their London flavour to the usually bland Parisian nail style; we hope to see them back!
