We're just a tiny bit envious of Millie Manderson (née Mackintosh). Not only does she have a brilliant wardrobe, she has fabulous nails too!

Millie is currently sunning herself in LA with her hubby Professor Green (see, another reason to be jealous!), and it looks like she indulged in a glitzy mani for the occasion.

There's nothing we like better than a bit glitter, and we especially love the way Millie went for a subtle hint of sparkle but just dabbing it on the very ends of her talons.

And let's not brush over the fact that her mani complemented her beautiful diamond-encrusted wedding ring perfectly!

So, fancy copying Millie's look? Luckily it's pretty easy!

1. Make like Millie and start by filing your talons into a flattering oval shape. Try using a glass file over a normal one (such as Champneys Glass Nail File, £10), as this can help prevent the nail from chipping.

2. Apply your base coat, then layer a few coats of a sheer pink nail polish. Essie Nail Polish in Sugar Daddy, £7.99, is perfect for giving your talons a slight pink tint, while still letting your nail show through.

3. While the last coat of your nail polish is still wet, sparingly sprinkle 2True Pro Sparkles Nail Glitter in 02, £4, just on the very tips. Once dry, seal with your fave top coat.

4. Sit back and admire your Chelsea-worthy nails before heading out for a spot of lunch at Bluebird!
