■ Barry M Molten Metal Nail Paint – Crys­tal Blue, £3.99, Su­per­drug: I love this shade. I felt like I had mer­maid fin­ger­nails. It took a cou­ple of coats to build up a good colour and ac­tu­ally I think a third would have made it look even bet­ter. Sadly one of my nails had al­ready chipped within 24 hours which was dis­ap­point­ing.

■ Leighton Denny Mod­ern Bo­hemia – Bo­hemian Spirit, £12, ld-bou­tique.com: This slate grey is a lovely shade for au­tumn and win­ter. I needed to ap­ply two coats for a de­cent colour and it did be­gin to wear off at the ends af­ter a day or two. Maybe ap­ply a clear top coat if you want it to last.

■ Nail­berry L’oxygéné Oxy­genated Nail Pol­ish – Hip­pie Chic, £14.50, nail­berry.co.uk: I am not nor­mally one for pinks pre­fer­ring darker colours but this was a re­ally pretty rusty pink, very au­tum­nal. Two coats gave de­cent colour cov­er­age and it went on smoothly. Af­ter a few days though it was al­ready chip­ping.

■ Gloss­works – Tan­fas­tic Nude, £12, feelu­nique.com: A lit­tle bot­tle that packs a lot of stay­ing power. Tan­fas­tic Nude is a per­fect colour for day­wear and goes with ev­ery­thing. It also sur­vived sev­eral gym work­outs and a shop­ping spree with­out chip­ping. An all-round win­ner.

CELEBRITY SE­CRET

PROV­ING that false eye­lashes don’t al­ways have to look, um, su­per false, Rosamund Pike, right, cre­ated her nat­u­ral, yet glam­orous look at the re­cent pre­miere of her new movie, A Pri­vate War, us­ing KISS Haute Cou­ture’s Trio Lashes.

Priced £7.49 at Su­per­drug, the in­di­vid­ual lashes come in var­i­ous lengths to en­hance your eyes. Rosamund is wear­ing the ‘X-short’ length.
