Lily Allen's manicurist Michelle Humphrey shares step-by-step


By Joely Walker

It’s no secret that Lily Allen loves her nail art. The latest look? These Arabian Nights meet festival-cool nails.


Pink, coral and lilac tips with a gold French-mani line and gem embellishments. Lily’s manicurist Michelle Humphrey @LMCWorldwide has given us the exclusive step-by-step so you can recreate the look...


1 - File your nails to the desired shape and buff all over –buffing removes any oils on the nail bed which helps your base coat last longer.

2 - Apply Essie Base Coat Polish in First Base, £10.50.

3 - Apply two coats of Maybelline New York Color Show Polish in Latte, £2.99, to each nail.

4 - Paint the edges of random tips in your chosen colours. Michelle used 4 different pinks and purples for the tips – Essie in Lilacism, Status Symbol and Big Spender (all £7.99) and Maybelline New York Color Show in Pink Boom, £2.99.

5 – For the gold tips use a fine make-up brush and gold varnish or a gold nail art pen. ELLE Loves Topshop Nail Art Pen in Fools Gold, £6.50.

6 -Use a small amount of nail glue and add a pink crystal (available in art stores) to the tip of every nail.

7 – Finally use Essie Top Coat Polish in Good To Go, £8.99, to seal the varnish and to give a glossed finish.
