Raaaar! I al­ways feel a lit­tle raaar when I wear red on my nails. My colour for the sum­mer is Rock the Run­way, right, €14.95, from essie’s new range, called Gel Cou­ture.

It’s ba­si­cally a gel-like for­mula that lasts for up to 10 days — de­pend­ing, of course, on how raaar you get! Two steps is all it takes — the colour, then the quick-dry gel top coat that pro­tects colour and shine — and that’s it, no base coat needed! In my pic­ture, above, I was wear­ing mine for a week — and it’s still go­ing strong as I type this, three days later. Essie is the brand leader in nail trends at fash­ion weeks across the world, so the twisty bot­tle is in­spired by a dress twirling on the run­way. The tapered brush is de­signed to hug the curve of the nail, so you get a re­ally pre­cise ap­pli­ca­tion. There are lots more shades to choose from, such as clas­sic neu­trals, darks and pretty pas­tels. They’re avail­able in phar­ma­cies na­tion­wide from next month.
