Actress goes for festival makeover

Vanessa Hudgens is heading to US festival Coachella with new tattoos and daring gem-encrusted talons.

The actress’s long cream nails have metal charms hanging off them and are complemented by henna art on the 24-year-old’s hands and feet.

Vanessa showed off her new look on Instagram.

Too legit to quit. Coachella swagger,’ she wrote.

Excited about partying in the desert, Vanessa then uploaded a make-up-free snap of herself travelling to the music event.

Finally the day has come to go to #coachella. Free once again,’ she posted.

The star recently revealed her wild side in new film Spring Breakers.

The movie shows her character Candy snorting coke, smoking weed and binge drinking before having a threesome with James Franco and Ashley Benson.
