I have been a fan of nails for as long as I can remember. My aunts (twins) always had perfectly long nails and would paint them every chance they got. I remember a hot coraly orange was their colour of choice for a while. They were in their early 20s and I was about 4yrs old.

Fast forward through only being allowed nail polish during weekends or holidays (unless it was clear) meanwhile experimenting with dots and stripes and multicolours, to me at 13yrs old and my first trip to New York!
I taught myself all about acrylics, water decals, diamantés, and stencils then bagged myself a “Saturday job” in a beauty salon doing nails at 15yrs old. I was in my element, super striping, tipping, webbing, marbling, and at Christmas snowmen and Christmas trees came out to play. By the time I reached 21, I gave it all up. Got rid of my kit, I kept all of my paints and brushes/tools but somehow they’ve managed to disappear.
(Takes deep breath) All of that so you understand just how excited I am that WAH Nails and Models Own have developed a collection of nail art pens (for the leopard in you) that also double up as super stripers (for the tiger in you).
WAH Nails already sell the of the moment Models Own polishes in their flagship and pop-up stores, founder of WAH, Sharmadean Reid is always asked by her customers where they can buy the nail pens they use, hence the collaboration.
“We want to be the last word in fashion forward nails and this allows our loyal customers to take the brand home with them – WAH Nails designs in Models Own colours” Sharmadean Reid
Known for their signature leopard print and innovative nail design, WAH has acheived cult status for the ability to create pretty much any design or pattern for their customers. They certainly proved that to me last night when I asked them to do “Freak Deluxe nails“!
The black and white pens are £6 and will be available from 15th November at modelsownit.com. The collection will continue to grow to include all 99 nail polish colours currently available from the Models Own collection!
