London has been buzzing about nail art for a while and I did not stand aside and watch it happen, regularly visiting my favourite Wah Nails salon at Topshop Oxford Circus. But now a brand established by Holly Silius and Hannah Warner called, surprise surprise, H&H are taking nail art to next level, the metal level. While the rest of the world is excited about metal looking wraps or new OPI’s The Man With The Golden Gun nail varnish that looks like liquid gold, these ladies actually use real metal for their nail art creation. Their idea is creating full sets of metal nails that vary in size to suit your nails and have to be attached on to your natural nail with strong nail glue (but removed easily by soaking your nails in nail varnish remover (check out how many times I used a word nail in this sentence!)). Usage of this innovative material allows to create 3D structures and even apply semi precious stones. Designers recommend choosing single nails for daily wear and full sets for special occasion. My recommendation, stick to special occasions and with Halloween fast approaching, go all out! As expected, prices are much higher than your normal manicure, but these nails could be used again and again. Single nails start from £40 and be expected to pay up to £500 for a full set. Above are my favourites – from animalistic claws to embellished nails inspired by nature. The collection is available at Kabiri and soon on H and H website.
