Party nails are this season’s *hottest* accessory.

From cool crystals and high-shine finishes to pretty pastels and plush colour combos, it’s all about nail art.

Both the fash-pack and street-stylers are leading the way, showcasing fresh trends, hues and shapes at every possible event. And they’re not to be ignored.

Think party nails have to be complicated? Think again. There are plenty of easy ways to make your fingertips pop.

Channel Myleene Klass by popping on a set of nail wraps. These come in all kinds of patterns, finishes and colours – but we love Myleene’s choice of metallic leopard print.

Another easy way to make your hands stand out is by picking a super-bright shade of polish.

Just take a look at La La Anthony’s eye-catching turquoise talons. These will look their most amazing with a tan in summer.

Other fluorescent tints you could consider include pink, orange, yellow and lime green. For a really fun style, mix and match your colours or select a feature nail on each hand.

Feel a little more experienced with party nails? We’ve also got some more complicated designs for you to try.

Coloured tips can work with any outfit. Kerry Washington’s monochrome mani is super-chic while a two-tone ombre look makes a more subtle statement.

Adding gems, stripes, glitter or dots of black can totally transform a plain painted nail.

For the artists among you, now is the time to have some real fun. Alessandra Torresani’s pick ‘n’ mix talons feature drawings including spirals, bows and faces.

If you’re after a more classic look, channel Made In Chelsea‘s Rosie Fortescue with traditional red. We promise you this’ll never go out of fashion.

So whether you want to shake up your mid-week manicure or work a fierce Friday night design, take inspiration from our edit of the best party nails you can do at home.
