There is no such thing as a basic mani and pedi in this London based salon. The WAH way of life began way back in 2005 as a fanzine which paid homage to females killing it in the hip-hop and urban scenes around the world. Fast forward 11 years and the WAH way has created a new-age nail cult that has spread to all corners of the world with brands such as Marc Jacobs, Nike and Diesel jumping on board. We have serious nail envy (nenvy?). Follow their madness here.
