TOWIE star Frankie Essex is our new nail crush after we spotted this snap of her fabulous pink manicure!

Being an Essex gal Frankie has had her fair share of gorgeous manis, but we're particularly taken by this candy floss pink look.

Posting a pic of her pointers on Twitter over the weekend (7 March), the starlet wrote: "Love my nails #candyfloss #lovepink #milkshake @xXkirstyX."

The pretty blonde opted for a sweep of bubblegum pink across her talons, paired with a white polka dot design on her ring finger. How cute?!

And the best part of Frankie's mani is that it's super-easy to create.

Just follow our tips below:

1. Start by painting your nails with a base coat to avoid staining. Try No7 Stay Perfect Nail Base Coat, £6.

2. Next, using your fave pink polish (Ciaté Nail Polish in Candy Floss, £9, is a perfect match for Frankie's hue), apply 2-3 coats across each nail, keeping your ring finger bare.

3. Take a white polish (such as Essie Nail Paint in Blanc, £7.99) and sweep across your ring finger.

White is a tricky colour to apply so keep a cotton bud dipped in nail polish remover on hand for any touch ups. Again, apply 2-3 coats for an opaque finish.

4. Once dry, grab a dotting nail art tool (try Fing'rs Edge Art Box kit, £6.49, available from Asda stores), and dip into your pink polish before lightly pressing over your white nail to create a polka dot pattern.

5. Finish by sealing your work with a top coat, such as Collection Nail Care Top Coat, £2.99.
