Step aside polish, nail stickers have come to town

Step aside polish, nail stickers have come to town

A creative nail art movement has exploded from the streets of East London salon WAH Nails out into the world’s four corners. Long gone are the days of brandishing boring French manicures – instead it’s now encouraged that a little individuality and creativity be applied to each fingertip.

Don’t be afraid – we’re not talking scary talons or 3D Hello Kitty additions, but for those after a pop of colour (especially in the depths of a dreary winter’s despair) there’s nothing wrong with experimenting with your nails. If you are a little unsure of your artistic ability, Mecca Maxima has come up with an easy solution that is not only cheap, but simple and (relatively) mess free. The adhesive nail strips cost $9.95 and last up to five days, dry fast and are completely smudge proof. With these stickers you can adorn your nails with designs such as Pink Parade and Life in the Fast Lane, which feature everything from love hearts to bright Aztec prints and metallics.

You can take some inspiration from the original WAH Nails website if you are a little more adventurous with polish, or the salon’s recently released WAH Nails Book of Nail Art, which is available at David Jones.
