Back in the summer I visited Wah Nails with my sister – you can see a post about this here. The only tenuous link to cats is that my sister had a leopard print design painted on her nails. It was a lovely day and I was very happy at Christmas to receive the “WAH LONDON Ultimate Nail Art Kit” from my family. You can buy this from Boots.
The set contains:
- Nail art pens 4 x 9.5ml
- Nail polishes 8 x 6.5ml
- Nail file
- Clean Up Brush
- Cuticle Pusher
- Jewel Tool
- 2 Pots of Jewels
- 4 Tutorial Cards
I couldn’t wait to have a play, and on Boxing Day, set up a salon for my mum, my cousin and my grandma.
I started with a disclaimer that I would try my best but not to expect the standards of the pictures in the pack. My cousin decided to go with the leopard print in blue, pink and black and was up first.
Following the card and trying to keep my hand steady I began. I think the fact that I could not drink my normal overindulgence of wine worked in my favour and I was really chuffed with the results. The guide made it very easy to follow and the nail varnishes are great quality. My cousin was chuffed and said they lasted for a while for her too. The top coat is great. I have a feeling she will be back to have these done again in lots of different colour varieties.
Next up was my mum … she had loved my nails from my visit in London and we decided to try and recreate. I was particularly happy with the clouds but the flowers do need some practice:
Finally it was my grandma’s turn. She was concerned that if went for anything too “trendy” she would look silly so we decided to go with a manicure but using the lovely lilac instead of clear. She has lovely long, strong nails and I think the result looked subtle and neat:
This kit is great as you can create some lovely effective patterns with a professional feel pretty easily. I plan to experiment and come up with some of my own designs. Probably some cat related of course…
Bonus is at the moment this is dramatically reduced on the Boots website from £85 to £25!!! This is crazy and I just bought one for someone’s birthday this year – it would be rude not to!
