We can't get enough of Fearne's simple yet chic nails, which were painted half pastel peach and half warm coral. They kind of remind us of a juicy fruit salad...

Judging by that mirror-like shine it seems the starlet opted for long-wearing gel nails, but it's a super-easy design to recreate with regular nail polish too!

Here's how to get the look:

1. Start by applying a base coat to help smooth your nails and prevent staining.

2. Next, take a light peach shade (such as Illamasqua Nail Polish in Purity, £14.50) and paint over the whole of your nail - you might need two coats for an opaque finish.

3. Now you've got two options, depending on how steady your hand is feeling! Make sure your polish is fully dry, then take a coral shade (we like Nicole by OPI in The Coral of the Story, £7.99 from selected Superdrug stores) and paint a diagonal line across each nail, keeping it as straight as possible, before filling in the upper half of your talon with your coral polish.

Alternatively, take a piece of masking tape and place diagonally over the bottom half of your nail, before painting the upper exposed part with your coral polish. Apply another coat, leave to dry, then peel off your masking tape - you should have a clean, crisp line.

4. Finally, cheat a super-glossy finish by painting on a gel-effect top coat. Try Bourjois 1 Seconde Gloss Gel Texture Top Coat, £5.99.
