Ri-Ri's famous talons get a ruby makeover


Shiny gel-look nails are a huge trend this autumn, with Rihanna and Jessie J among the stars rocking the look.

Rihanna was lucky enough to have gel manicure dusted with precious gems. She Tweeted: ‘#rubys in my damn gel polish!!!’

Rihanna‘s nail technician Kimmie Kyees used a layer of Red Carpet Manicure LED Gel Polish in Haute Couture followed by a coat of Your Fortune Awaits, a limited edition shade containing genuine ruby dust.

You can get Ri-Ri‘s style with Red Carpet Manicure‘s new shade Draped In Rubies, available from November.

You could also try Barry M‘s new gel polish – two coats will give your nails a look just as lush and glossy as a professional gel mani.

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint, £3.99, available in nine colours.

Red Carpet Manicure professional kits are priced from £89.95, with colours from £12.95.
