Perfectly polished and painted nails scream sophistication, especially in the bold reds that are in at the minute.

Shimmering shades of red are extrmely classy as well as extremely fashionable - perfect for big occasions. Use a slightly different shade of red on your lips and you'll look a million dollars.

Our advice: If you want beautiful nails, start at the beginning and give yourself a DIY professional manicure. File them first, apply an emollient cuticle cream and push your citicles back, then brush your nails down so that there's no oily film on the surface, and dry. Apply a base to protect and then two coats of varnish. Finish with a top-coat. For added sparkle, add a coat of shimmer varnish.
