Lily Allen has flaunted yet another spectacular manicure, this time opting for rainbow stripes!

The 'Air Balloon' singer has been on fire with her nail art, flaunting everything from golden eye talons to vibrant neon ombre nails. We don't think we'll ever spot her rocking a simple French manicure again!

Taking to Twitter yesterday (29 April), Lily posted a picture while holding her hand in a claw shape to showcase her fancy new design.

Very impressive, don't cha think?

Now thankfully this is one of Lily's slightly more simple manis, making it a bit easier to recreate at home.

Start by applying your base coat, then slick your pointers with a white nail polish (try Rimmel by Rita Ora 60 Seconds Nail Polish in White Hot Love, £3.69) and leave to dry. Using a white base first will make your bright colours appear much more vivid.

Next, grab a short, wide nail art brush. We like the Flat/Wide Brush which comes in the Models Own Nail Art Tool Kit, £8.

Now for the part that requires a steady hand and a lot of time! Grab a selection of rainbow nail colours (OPI and Barry M both do a fab range of shades), and, using one, carefully paint a line near the base of your nail. Once this is totally dry, use another colour to paint your next line and so on.

Once dry, finish with a top coat to add a touch of gloss - we like Bourjois 1 Seconde Gel Top Coat, £5.99.

Alternatively, get a similar look with nail wraps. Rebel Nails Rainbow Nail Art Wraps, £7.99, are perfect, or for a twist check out House of Holland by Elegant Touch Tie Dye Nails, £8.99.
