The Things I Carry: WAH Nails

We always like to know what some of our favorite artists carry in their purses (and man-purses)—the essential items that they need for touring or subway rides, the Grammys or any other thing that they might be doing these days, which is why we've made it a regular column on the site.

The ladies from the legendary WAH Nails in London were in the US for the week and since they practically jumpstarted the entire nail art craze and do it better than anyone else, people have been gagging trying to get appointments with the crew. Luckily for us, they stopped by the office for a few impromptu manicures, and before they sat down to start painting, we asked WAH's manager maven, Irene, what she carries in her beautiful, worn brown leather satchel. Here's what she had, plus a picture of her insane studded platforms.
