Introducing Metal Nails by H&H

They've adorned the fingertips of Beyonce and Rihanna and now rapper-singer MIA is the latest star to wear H&H metal nails.



In the video for her new single Bring The Noize, MIA wears a bold set of gold jaguar nails from the brand's extensive range of creative adornments.

Designed by Holly Silius and Hannah Warner, the ostentatious talons have earned an army of celebrity fans and made their catwalk debut for Thierry Mugler's AW12/13 show.

Nature is the theme and inspiration for the H&H collection, with thorns, leaves, thistle, wood, animal skulls and spider webs cast into hardened gold, bronze and silver nail pieces.

The brand's third collection includes nail rings with winding rose vines and full finger and thimble designs.

The jaguar design worn by MIA, was inspired by time Holly spent staying with a shaman in Peru and seeing black jaguars in their natural habitat.

Manicurist Sophie Harris-Greenslade from The Illustrated Nail created the look for the MIA video.

About H&H
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.

Hannah's knowledge of metals and the making processes and Holly's 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 Beyonce, Rihanna, Cassie, Beth Ditto, Lianne Le Havas, Jamie Winstone to name a few and have been featured in Vogue, V, Interview and The Hunger.

The nails are stocked in prestigious stores such as Colette in Paris, Harvey Nichols in Dubai and Kabiri in London.
