Make up artist Holly Silius and jewellery designer Hannah Warner joined their professions and have pushed the boundaries to create a range of 2D and 3D metal nails under the name H&H.
Hannah graduated from Wimbledon College of Art and London Metropolitan, she went onto to study in New York at The Gemological Institute. Holly graduated from London College of Fashion with a BA (Hons) in special effects makeup for the performing arts.
Both Hannah and Holly design the range, gaining inspiration from each other and industry surroundings. Hannahs knowledge of metals and the making processes and Hollys knowledge of attaching to the body, sizing and expertise in theatrical make up for stage, music and screen proves a strong, imaginative combination.
The nails can be made in a range of colours, silver, gold, black and rose with additional stones used in some designs.
The designs once cast in solid metals add strength and durability to the nails allowing them to be re worn a number of times just like a piece of jewellery.
Nails have been seen on Rhianna, Cassie, Beth Ditto, Lianne Le Havas, Jamie Winstone to name a few and have been featured in Vogue, V, Interview and The Hunger.
