"What is the shiny stuff around the nails in all your pictures?!"
We like to prep the nail by buffing and filing, making a perfect canvas for our nail art. This can sometimes leave the cuticles dry, so we use cuticle oil at the end of the manicure to nourish the fingertips. We do not encourage the clients to wash the nail dust off their hands or apply cuticle oil - mid manicure because the water and oil can prevent your nail polish from lasting.
"How can i make my nail polish last as long as possible?"
Its all in the prep - dehydrate and cleanse the nail using acetone or nail polish remover and a cotton pad. Do not touch your nail, not even with your finger, as your hands contain tiny amounts of dirt and oil, before applying your basecoat. Then always use washing up gloves to wash the dishes!

"Why cant I buy your book outside of the UK?"
You can! From us directly! Its not yet on Amazon Worldwide, but keep checking. In the meantime, buy a signed copy from us directly here.
"Are the prices on the menu for all 10 nails?"
Yes, it would be a very expensive manicure if it was for one nail! All of our nail art includes a file and buff. If you just want a design on one nail, divide the price by 10 and add to the cost of your basic manicure.
"Will you ever open a salon in <INSERT YOUR HOMETOWN HERE>"
Probably not! We love travelling and doing pop-up salons internationally, but London is our home and we love it. We find we can keep the brand true and real by having a small operation and a few salons here in the UK. Keep following our instagram/twitter to see when we come to a town near you!
"Do you sell gift vouchers?"
Yes, you can buy them online here. These are not available or redeemable in WAH Nails Topshop
"What is the average price for a set of nails?"
Roughly around £30-£35 Although you can be economical and just have a few fingers with nail art and the rest with plain polish!
"Do you paint all the designs by hand?"
Yes! Our girls are super talented!
