WAH at the Marc Jacobs cosmetic launch last night! Our gals Annabel and Georgia killed it at the Mount Street store, dishing out glossy polish changes from the new range. We even made a custom display over at WAH HQ, involving sawing, spray painting and then mounting 24 fake fingers…
Remember last week we posted about the super cute camera icon nails we did for the Warehouse press evening? Well, this Saturday 22nd March it’s the Fashion Shooters Festival down on Brick Lane and all of y’all are invited!
The ultimate hang out for budding photographers or fashion enthusiasts, you can get your hair did by Toni & Guy, nails by us (duh), food from The Wandering Chef and there’s a live DJ set by Whinnie Williams. Major. So hurry and sign up here because places are limited and we don’t want to miss out. We’ve got a complimentary custom menu inspired by the prints from Warehouse’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection…
…and the ad campaign was shot by mega supermodel turned photographer Helena Christensen. You also have the chance to shoot the 13th image for the campaign with the lady herself on the day!
The festival takes place from 12-8pm at The Loading Bay, 91 Brick Lane, London, E1 6SB. It’s free, but you’ve gotta sign up for tickets through the link above.
Fruit Of The Loom - the go to for sweatshirts and tees back in the day right? Well their new venture, Seek No Further, is set to bring them bang up to date in 2K14. With Dorothée Loermann, formerly of Surface to Air, on the design front, the brand’s premium line mixes traditional know-how with cutting edge technology. Catering to the boys and the girls, the collection includes sophisticated staple pieces which aim to seamlessly fit into your ‘work and play wardrobe’.
Being “conceived for an intelligent, creative, design savvy audience,” naturally WAH boss lady Sharmadean Reid features in the ad campaign, amongst a line up of serious London talent. Not being content with just that alone, Sharma spun the decks at the pop up store opening on Redchurch Street last Thursday 13th March.
Having already launched a store over in Berlin, we’re sure it’s gonna be a great success here too.

We’ve got WAH books, necklaces and custom floral nails by our girl Ellie…

As you’ll know from our previous posts, we had a stand at the Women of the World festival last Friday 7th March through til Sunday 9th March. Taking place over International Women’s Day and embracing creative, strong and inspiring women from all over the world, it’s no surprise that the Southbank centre was super busy all weekend.
We made sure everyone’s nails matched the pop art themed logo…
…and the Asha charity opposite us were dishing out amaaaaazing henna hand tatts!
With speakers ranging from the incredibly brave Malala Yousafzai, to the legendary Vivienne Westwood, and to our very own Sharmadean Reid, the schedule was truly overflowing with inspiration.
Check out this total multi-tasking babe. She had come down to lend a hand on her daughter’s stand, proving that no matter how old you get, you can always use your mum’s help!
Girl power is what WAH was built on, and we really were honoured to be part of such a great event. Make International Women’s Day every damn day!
WoW aka Women of the World, is a festival of talks, debates, performance and activism celebrating women and girls from Wednesday 5th - Sunday 9th March at London’s Southbank Centre.
Natch this is right up our street! Nothing says girl power like fierce nails, so the WAH team will be down Friday through til Sunday, from 10am-6pm doing special WoW manis from £10.
Head WAH Woman Sharmadean Reid will be sharing her pearls of wisdom on Friday, alongside Southbank Centre Patrons Manager Joanna Newell and author and journalist Hannah Pool on the topic of Why People Fail, commenting on the rules of Simon Reynolds’ book ‘How People Fail’. The talk will be chaired by editor of Cosmopolitan Louise Court, and cover strategies for defeating negativity, whilst discussing empowerment, entrepreneurship and helping women to find confidence, passion and drive.
So if yesterday’s post on the success story of WAH left you wanting more, grab some girlfriends and come down to pick up some tips from the bo$$ herself, some cute nail art and get inspired! Tickets are only left for Friday so get ‘em whilst you can…
