For my birthday this year my amazing colleagues surprised me with a ‘Treat Yo Self’ package from WAH Nails.
For those of you who don’t know WAH, its basically nail heaven. I’ve probably spent hours of my life on their Instagram account – they have some seriously talented artists working there.
Needless to say I was beyond excited about my visit – especially as the Treat Yo Self package also includes a glass of bubbly, and a WAH gift.
My advice for your visit to WAH – come prepared. I usually go into a nail salon not really knowing what I want, and end up choosing a colour on a whim – it usually works out. This isn’t the case at WAH at all – luckily, I arrived 15 minutes early to my appointment and had time to have a browse through their Instagram feed, but everyone comes prepared. It’s because it really isn’t your usual nail salon – the artists are so talented, and are capable of doing so much – you’re not there to just get French tips. I found the choice totally overwhelming, and I’ll definitely come better prepared next time!
I ended up going for gel nails, with foils in three different colours and was in love with the result.
It’s been over three weeks now, and my manicure has lasted through Wilderness festival, a weekend of outdoor swimming, and all the cooking I do on a regular basis. I don’t know what witchcraft they have going on there, but it’s so worth it.
As for my gift, I ended up with a couple of cute new WAH branded polishes, and a set of cute press ons (perfect for when I get the gels removed).
While it’s a little too pricey to be my usual spot, I’d definitely recommend the experience for a special occasion – it’s so worth it!
