EXCLUSIVE FILM: WAH Nails' Sharmadean Reid & Venus X

We catch up with the WAH Nails founder and NY club sensation as they celebrate their new book

Earlier this week, the iconic east London nail salon, WAH Nails opened their exclusive new 'WAH Club' for one night only held at the W Hotels in London and soon, Union Square New York - celebrating the launch of their new book, featuring their unique nail art designs, how-to guides, and projects that have made fans out of the likes of M.I.A, Jessie J and Louise Gray.

Salon founder Sharmadean Reid invited down New York club wonder & DJ, the inimitable Venus X to play the launch, and - in this exclusive Dazed video, the two Gemini's got up close and personal about being their own brands and the pressures today to be young and achieve. Whilst they get their nails did, they chat about the parallel universes between their lives, Venus' Ghe20 Goth1k parties and the likes of Diplo, M.I.A, Tyler The Creator and Alexander Wang coming down to her cray cray parties playing everything from cold wave, Angolan house music, hip hop and metal.

Filmed in the EWOW Suite at W Hotel London. The WAH Nails Book of Nail Art by Sharmadean Reid (Hardie Grant Books) is available now from the W Store at W London
