Not only is Abbey Clancy a favourite in this year's Strictly Come Dancing, she's also got the coolest nails, like, ever!

The Liverpudlian WAG is currently shimmying around the dance floor with partner Aljaz Skorjanec, with three weeks of tough training ahead of her.

But aside from her fancy legwork, it's Abbey's statement mani which caught our attention.

The pretty blonde showcased her funky manicure on Twitter on Monday (9 September), along with her blinding sparkler.

Her talons were slicked with a sweet poppy red, which she spruced up with some comic strip-inspired nail art.

Want to get her look? We don't blame you!

Follow our guide for Clancy nails with zero effort:

1. Start by applying a base coat, then layer your nails with a bright red polish (try Orly Nail Colour in Terracotta, £10.25). Reapply until you reach an opaque finish.

2. Once dry, grab a nail art pen and prepare to get arty! Using NYC Show Time Nail Art Pen in Black, £2.99, draw zigzag patterns on different sides and corners of each nail.

3. Next, fill in your zigzag sections with a silver nail polish. The easiest way to keep things neat is to use a nail art pen (such as NYC Show Time Nail Art Pen in Silver, £2.99). The fine nib will ensure you don't get colour over the black line by mistake.

4. Give your nails some time to dry, then slick on a top coat to keep your mani chip-free.

Jaw-dropping diamond ring optional (we wish!)
