Eva Longoria paints it black

Gothic trend hits Hollywood


Her public and professional image has always been a glamourpuss rather than a trendsetter, but Eva Longoria's nailed the gothic trend for autumn/winter with a beautiful dark shade of varnish on her fingertips that sets off her colouring perfectly.

We've found out the shade is Dark Plum, £8, from Nubar and, to get your nails looking as classy as Eva's, the brand's experts recommend filing them down short into a square shape, but with rounded edges.

Next, buff nails to get a smooth surface that will allow light to bounce off the polish's surface and use a base coat to 'anchor' the colour and help it last longer without chipping.

Nubar is available from www.cultbeauty.co.uk or by calling 01733 232350.
