WAH Nails Manicure

Sometimes I like to try treatments without saying what I do for a living, which is exactly what I did when I popped into WAH Nails' concession in Topshop's flagship store on Oxford Circus for a speedy mani last week.
Firstly, I have to say that I was impressed with the array of nail art designs on offer. If you're into nail art, then definitely check out their offering where you can choose from designs such as skulls, Tiffany inspired packaging, bows and my favourite, hot lips. Pushed for time, I opted for a regular file and polish and chose Model's Own Nail Polish in Gun Grey.
Although the service itself seemed to be fairly good with all of the customers leaving with immaculate nails, I did feel rather like I was on a conveyer belt. In fact, bar choosing my colour and confirming the shape I'd like my nails filed into, the technician seemed far more interested in chatting to her colleague than talking to me and making me feel comfortable. Having said this, the service was impressively speedy, making it ideal for lunchtimes.
I left feeling happy with how my nails looked. I felt that the technician did a good job, working with my seemingly neglected nails which had been breaking one-by-one thoroughout the week. I liked the colour that I'd chosen with its subtle shimmer flecks and although I can't comment on how the formula was to work with, the technician only needed to apply two coats to gain full coverage. She finished with my favourite top coat, Seche Vite.
My major complaint is that after just 2 not-particularly-busy days, noticable chips had started to appear which I don't really feel is acceptable after a professional manicure.
