Sneaker Nails with WAH

London nail-art collective WAH turns out some of the most insane designs out there (check their Instagram @wahnails): neon paisleys, Olympic flags, animal prints, you name it. But their recent Converse-inspired set made us do a double-take. (We're not alone—the pic has 30,488 "likes" and counting on Instagram.) We immediately shot off an email to Sharmadean Reid, WAH's founder, and the next day, she replied with a short, iPhone-filmed how-to vid. (As for Shar's own manicure—or lack thereof—don't mind it. "When you can have anything, you have nothing," she says.)

    It's amazing how easy she makes this look! Can't say that mine would turn out the same ;)

    I'm not always a fan of nail art, but this one is super cute and unique. Thanks for sharing!

    Super cute and creative. She makes it look so easy, but I know this is something that I would easily mess up on my own nails.

    Super cute, but it skews a little young. I do love the explosion in nail color art though.

    She makes it look so incredibly easy that I'm actually considering trying it, despite being terribly uncoordinated when it comes to nail art :P

  • Lorna Thomas

    These are amazing and so cute. I gave it a go myself. Not an expert at nail art but found this one quite simple, even if they did take me almost an hour and a half.
