Maria Fowler showed off her fabulous nail painting skills yesterday (6 August 2013) with a close-up of a gorgeous, glittery DIY manicure on Instagram.

We're used to our favourite Essex girls getting their talons professionally painted with the likes of Jessica Wright and Lauren Goodger often showing us the results of an afternoon at the nail bar.

But it seems TOWIE's Maria is a pretty dab hand at doing them herself...

"Done my own glitter gels #skilled #nails" she posted, along with this super-sparkly look (above).

Last week we saw The Saturdays' Rochelle Humes showing off her make-up skills with a very professional-looking smoky eye.

And this week it's Maria's turn with a set of personally painted nails that wouldn't look amiss on the catwalks at London Fashion Week.

Maria created this look using a Kiss Everlasting PRO LED GEL Lamp, £38.96, which allows you to do long-lasting gel nails in the comfort of your own home.

She also commented that she used, "turquoise gel with loose glitter over before top coat," but we've found a much easier polish that's turquoise and glittery all-in-one.

And it has the best name we've ever heard for a nail colour, Gelish Gel Nail Polish in Oocha Coocha Bing Bam Alakazy Alakazam,

Try saying THAT after a few white wines!

Nice work, Maria, maybe you should start doing your fellow The Only Way is Essex girls manis and pedis too! That's a pretty good job you've done there...
