Last night at super swank venue W London, WAH Nails launched their very first book to a backdrop of disco balls, amazing RnB from the likes of Venus X and Acyde and of course . . . the VERY best dressed gang of WAH fans straight outta East London! We have to say, we felt quite underdressed compared to the absolutely amazing vintage Versace and Moschino outfits, all topped off with creepers, rad hair with Bleach dip dyes and of course, very elaborate nail designs. Drinks - yummy Ribeana style cocktails came courtesy of Ketel One.

Sharmadean Reid, the founder of WAH and author of the book is one of the most interesting people working in fashion at the moment. With her own business, (three salons) her styling career and brilliant websites and blogs  AND a one year old baby, we’re not sure how she found the time to create the book – part magazine about herself and her cool girls and part handy nail art guide, with 25 projects to do yourself at home – but we’re glad she did. Oh, and did we mention she's still only 27!

As she explains herself, Sharmadean created the brand because ‘before we opened, “nail art” was a dirty word within beauty circles, something a bit tacky and ghetto – but I knew it could be more. Nail artists like Marian Newman, Sophy Robson and Jenny Longworth had been pioneering fashion-forward nail art in magazines for a while, but no one was bringing it into the mainstream. And that’s where [WAH nails] come in! The book is the next step, sharing our passion, our style and our technique with you - because everyone deserves hot nails.’

We caught up with Sharmadean in the whirlwind of excitement – where she was excitedly handing out books and squealing ‘I can’t believe I’ve got a book! I can’t believe it!’ When we asked her what the best thing about having to promote the book was she said ‘We’re going to New York for the American launch next week! We’ve got THIS in New York!’ Aww. We can’t think of anyone who has worked harder and or is more deserving of their success.

    Treasure trove of British newsreels reveals Top Gear's ancestors

    Long after television grew to dominate American and British homes, newsreel producer British Pathé kept at it, documenting the news of the day until finally ceasing production of new short films in 1970 after 60 years of effort. Last week, all of British Pathé's 85,000 films were put online — including dozens of fascinating, rare and often weird car films that resemble nothing so much as a jet-age Top Gear.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    Waste oil collector struggles after STOMP posts, receives help from kind souls

    After being photographed at work in Jurong pooling used oil near coffee shops, 50-year-old Valerie Sim has been struggling to keep her family afloat. Web portals STOMP and The Real Singapore published pictures of her in February, triggering a witch hunt for others like her and comments from readers like “Who knows if they’ll use it as cooking oil?” Some readers also said they filed police reports against her and other people they believed were doing the same thing she was.

  • I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.
    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
