Get arty and paint the lower half of nails with Nails Inc Nail Polish in Carnaby Street, £11 (1), and the top half with Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Sun Downer, £3.69. Hide the join with a thick black line using Models Own WAH! Nail Art Pen, £6.
We’re feeling festive already, and nothing says par-tay like glitz. Start with your fave shade and add a glitter polish on top. We used Leighton Denny Maroon Me Not, £11 (2), topped with a coat of Models Own Nail Polish in Freak Out, £5.
DIY (design it yourself)
We’re so excited about Design My Nails – the website that lets you print absolutely anything on to a fake nail. Upload a photo, quote, pic of your celeb crush or choose from a range of designs. Prices start from £9.99.
It’s a wrap
Make hand flapping a thing of the past and jazzy prints a thing of the future with the latest nail wrap designs. These guys don’t even require heat to set – just stick them on, file and go. Simples. We heart Rebel Nails Bondi Beach Nail Art Wrap, £7.99 (3).
Stick to it
Different nail lengths? Chewed tips? Falsies will disguise a multitude of sins. But forget French manicures, these days it’s all about super-cool designs. We love Perfect Girl Stick ’Em Quick Nails in Aztec, £4.50 (4). And the best thing about them? There’s no need to prep, as dry, clean tips are best.
