Don't have the time or the budget for a bi-monthly visit to the salon for a gel-based manicure? Then your nails are in for a serious treat thanks to the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, £9.99 each.

Available in 47 shades, the secret is all in the Top Coat. Painted over one of the polishes, it contains a light-activated ingredient that reacts with molecules in the pre-applied colour.

The result? A professional looking mani that doesn't need a UV/LED lamp, lasts upto two weeks AND doesn't need the regular soaking and laborious process to remove the gel - just wipe off with your regular nail polish remover and you're good to go again.

The HFM Beauty desk are lusting after the Flawlessly Nude collection for an on-trend minimal nail look, with a shade for every skin tone.

Sally Hansen’s Global Colour Ambassador Madeline Poole recommends for pale pink undertones, a sheer colour like Birthday Suit will look best.

A slightly tanned and olive skin will look best in Bare Dare, while darker skin can carry either sheer or opaque nudes better. Try How Nude or Truffle Shuffle.

If you’re after a pop of colour, then paint on Dig Fig - the perfect vampy red for a wintery day and an almost exact replica of the models strutting down the catwalks at Emporio Armani. Team with short, round nails to complete the look.
