Love Katie, Lily, Lilah, Ferne and Kelly? Us too. So here's how to nail their hottest nails in a flash
The flashy one
This category. of course. belongs to Katie Price, who less than a month after giving birth to her baby girl has full-on hi-tech talons in place. Katie is a qualified Harmony Gelish manicurist herself, so it could be that this is a DIY gel job. Either way, you can get an exact match of her new mum mani with Gelish’s Big City Siren, £12.95, but you will need a UV lamp, top coat and base coat, which would cost around £430.
For a cheaper, at home long lasting red mani try the Fuse Sensationail kit, £35, which comes with a deep red gelnamel – a gel/varnish hybrid that is cured under a USB powered UV lamp, but doesn’t require top or undercoats.
The chic one
Lilah Parsons posted this Instagram pic of the mani she wore for her Now Glasto fashion shoot last month. It looks complicated but is really just a blend of two colours and a freehand oh so on-trend feather drawn over the top.
Jessica Nails expert Laura Cowley says, ‘Apply one layer of white. This is really going to make the colour pop. Then apply two contrasting colours – I’ve chosen an orange and a pink – and use a fan brush to blend them together to give an ombre effect. Lastly, with a fine brush recreate a feather by drawing it on each of the nails.’ To see a step by step how-to click here.
The totes OTT one
Big kid Lily Allen‘s manicure was created by Melbourne-based nail nut Clara H, but you can give yourself a My Little Pony inspired mani with these decals from FlutterbyDream on Etsy, £4.33. For a neon base coat look no further than Barry M for Dream Valley inspired Nail Paints, £3.99 each and Nail Art pens, £4.99 to customise your look.
The on-trend one
Stylista Kelly Osbourne knows the ‘stiletto’ shape is set to be HUGE for AW14, as are nude hues which is why she’s rocking bothin this Insta of her on a recent photoshoot. So if yours are long enough, use a glass file to create a pointed shape, or try these nude painted stiletto acrylics £12.99 that are good to glue on and go. For a quality nude polish try L’Oreal Color Riche Nail in Macaron Noisette 102, £4.99. It has a sheeny porcelain finish.
The eyes closed one
She loves a fart joke, says what she likes and did our Ice Bucket Challenge (see here if you haven’t guffawed at it already). And now Ferne McCann‘s offered us up a celebrity get-the-look mani that you can knock out quicker than you can say, ‘Ferne, you’re a hairstylist. Can you please explain what the bejiggedy is going on with Charlie’s hair?’
For a smart finish make sure you use a top coat – or risk looking like you’ve had a tustle with the Tippex. Try Maybelline Color Show Nail 130 Winter Baby, £3 finished with Rimmel Finishing Touch Ultra Shine Top Coat £4.50.
