WAH WAH WAH I am totally buggin’. Sharmedean Reid and WAH nails have released their second book leaving the salon and helping girls in need.
We’re talking less Downton Abbey and more Downtown girls. A book with good nails and good advice. Ideal. She’s nailed it!
We met up with Sharmedean and asked her a few questions about the book.
WONDERLAND: Hi Sharmadean! So, tell us a bit about your new book?
Sharmadean Reid: The book is the follow up to our first nail book. It has way more info in it to help girls find their dream careers or paths in life. WAH is much more than a nail salon, its an attitude and state of mine. I’m trying to spread that message.
What were the inspirations behind the book?
The first book was for the girl in the suburbs, this one is for when she’s moved to the big city. Inspired by me moving to london and trying to carve my niche.
Who are your top 5 Downtown girls of all time?
Its about a girl who can go in both uptown AND downtown: Neneh Cherry, Sharon Stone in Casino, Madonna in Who’s That Girl, Jennifer Lopez and Kate Moss.
Where is your downtown hangout?
WAH nails office in Haggerston. Vibes, nails, rum!
If you had to pick a song to best describe the book what would it be?
Jennifer Lopez when she was collaborating with the Murder Inc. Crew.
Downtown Girls is available now
