WAH London Ultimate Nail Art Kit - Review

I've got another WAH London review for you today - the WAH London Ultimate Nail Art Kit. If you missed my last post on the new WAH London Immerge nail art kits then you can see it here.

I remember when the Ultimate Nail Art Kit was released and I was desperate to have it until I saw the £80 price tag. I mean, you do get plenty in there and it does look amazing, but I'm not one to go making extravagant purchases like that - I'm always after a bargain! If I was someone just getting into nail art and didn't already have a bajillion nail polishes and nail tools, then I'd have been a bit happier paying it because it has everything you need. Luckily for me I managed to grab it while it was £10 on the Boots website (more on that at the end!).

Nail Polishes
The kit comes with 7 WAH London nail polishes and the Classy Glassy Glossy topcoat. I'll get round to swatching them all soon but the ones I have tried are quite good. The first layer can be very thin but the second coat really evens things out to give an opaque finish. They're not particularly shiny and they chipped sooner than I expected without a topcoat so I'd definitely recommend wearing one. The Classy Glassy Glossy topcoat is really nice; it's super shiny and it feels as though you have a protective shell over your nails. It evens out any bumpy bits from nail art really well to give a smooth finish.

Nail Art Pens
I'd been using WAH London nail art pens for a while before buying this kit and I always recommend them. This kit comes with four colours - Black, White, Yellow, Pink - they have a nib and a striping brush that are both neat and precise. My one complaint about them is that they don't last very long before becoming gloopy, so I never end up finishing a bottle. I don't know if that could be solved by a change to the formula of the polish, or if using a smaller bottle will help? What do you think?

Tools
You'll find some other bits and bobs in your kit for nail care and nail art purposes. I was very happy to see the Clean Up Brush, I already own this one and use it all the time. If you're taking pictures of your nails like I do then you want a nice clean edge around the nails, otherwise a clean-up brush is good for removing any splodges of nail polish from your skin. Just dip it in a bit of nail polish remover and give the mistake a brush. It's quick and easy to do and makes a huge difference to the overall look of your manicure in my opinion.

I was happy to find some jewels and nail studs in the kit because they always come in handy and are great to use when you don't have time for an intricate design. You also get a Jewel Tool for picking up and applying your jewels and studs.

The nail care tools are a nail file, buffer, scissors, and a cuticle pusher.



Tutorial Cards
You get three tutorial cards that give fairly detailed instructions and inspiration for some really nice designs. I tried the 'Big Leopard' one out for myself; it's a different style of leopard print than what I'm used to doing and I really liked the effect.

Overall
I'm really happy with this handy little kit. Would I pay £80 for it? No, but if you manage to find it cheaper then go for it! Even if you're not into nail art yourself I think it'll make a great gift for someone else, especially with the cute little case everything comes in.

Availability
The WAH London Ultimate Nail Art Kit is available from Boots priced at £80 (eek!). However, it's £10 at the moment** (online only), BUT it's currently out of stock which isn't surprising! I've noticed before that when something isn't coming back in stock on their website that they say it won't be coming back, however this time it doesn't say that so I've got my fingers crossed for you all that it's going to come back. I've been checking the website every so often and I'll send a tweet out if I find that it's back in stock! Or if you don't want to wait there's a few people selling it for around £20 on eBay.

  1. This is an amazing set and although I wouldn't pay £80 for it I'd most definitely pay £10. I'll be keeping an eye on it to see if it comes back in stock x

  3. I've put polish thinner in nail art pens to stop them being so thick and it seems to work. Great bargain :)

  7. Het is dunner aan de replica horloges nederland onderkant en dikker aan de bovenkant naar de kroon en knoppen tegemoet te komen. Dit maakt het zo'n unieke en stijlvolle geval en dat is een andere reden waarom ik vond het moeilijk te weerstaan. Het is iets over ons mannen en deze kleine details over de
    replica horloges tag heuer die altijd de buy triggeren nu knoop.

    Goed nieuws replica horloges omega is dat dit originele stuk verkoopt voor slechts ongeveer $ 7.5k dat is eigenlijk een lage prijs voor een speciale editie Tag Heuer horloge, maar nog steeds veel te veel dat ik persoonlijk zou willen betalen. Want het is niet echt een high-end watch en nog meer zou een populair model het passeren van deze baby voor een origineel niet zo moeilijk zijn. Het doet de replica horloges rolex vangst van een heleboel ogen al speciaal wanneer mensen zien de ander geval ontwerp, maar dat is wat het moet doen met zijn uiterlijk anyways. Check hier wat meer foto's op dit horloge en laat me weten wat je ervan vindt.
