Nails go sci-fi

We’re channelling Judy Jetson as nail colour gets galactic in preparation for winter.

Look to the skies with Orly’s Emberstone (£9.85,, which has a hint of glitter to recreate the effect of moon dust, or try No17’s magnetised polishes (£5.99, that create space-age patterns with the use of a small magnet in the cap. And don’t be fooled by the new name of Nails Inc’s Blair Collection for its Gossip Girl collaboration (£20, – these varnishes have a subtle holographic top coat. Bright nails are the perfect way to express yourself and Star Trek has nothing on these futuristic shades. Our crystal ball predicts they will be a sell-out.
