Fearne Cotton gets arty with red and gold studded nails, 11 July 2013

Fearne's nails were created for a photoshoot and while we might not have been able to see the rest of her look, she did give us a quick close-up of her fabulous-looking nails.

"New nails for a shoot today #studs," she posted to her gazillion fans (us included!).

Her recent red carpet appearances have seen the Celebrity Juice star showing off very understated, nude nails, but as we predicted earlier this week, it seems nude nails might have had their day this summer...

She also kept to a neutral nail palette for the Glamour awards, 4 June 2013

Fearne chose a deep red nail colour on her perfectly manicured nails, topped off with a glossy topcoat and some gold, pyramid studs on a few nails.

A good look, huh? Slightly 'rock,' but without being too OTT.

Katy Perry worked a similar gold, studded manicure at this year's Costume Institute Gala Benefit (Met Ball), back in May.

But thanks Fearne, yours looks much easier to recreate!

To get a similar look at home, gently file your nails to a neat, medium length then apply two thin coats of Essie Nail Colour in Thigh High, £7.99, boots.com.

Then, while the topcoat is drying, press three gold studs in a vertical line on top of the nails of your thumb, forefinger and ring fingers.
