Edgy Beauty Made Easy With This New Book

WAH Nails creator Sharmadean Reid is one cool girl — and she's setting the standard for edgy beauty with her latest tome: The WAH Nails Book Of Downtown Girls. A collection of nail art tips along with style and beauty suggestions for getting that perfectly edgy look, this book is one to keep on your shelf for whenever you're feeling a lack of creative inspiration.
With interviews ranging from manicure goddess Marian Newman to Into The Gloss founder Emily Weiss, there's a ton of advice on how to become your best, most badass, most fearless self, both in your personal life and at work (and, for the record, Reid says, "downtown" is a mindset, not a geographic location).
And, the nails. Oh, those nails. The twenty-five looks (all modeled on fierce real girls) are enough to banish your Ballet Slippers to the back of the medicine cabinet forever. Our favorites? Colorful zig-zags, neon paint splatter, and a rainbow tie-dye fade — and, thanks to Reid's easy-to-follow instructions, we'll be able to try each and every one.
The WAH Nails Book Of Downtown Girls, $10.87, available at Barnes and Noble.
