Ashley James is a bit of a nail icon in the Reveal office, so we were shocked to see her letting the side down recently with – shock, horror – chipped polish!

We spotted the gorgeous former Made in Chelsea star's far-from-perfect-mani on 28 April as she showed off her love of kale on Instagram.

Sorry, but when it comes to nails, there's no hiding from our beady eyes!

Ashley posted this snap to illustrate her kale obsession... but we're more obsessed about her nails! 28 April 2014

Don't get us wrong, Ashley is fast becoming one of our favourite beauty heroes, showing off all manner of gorgeous hair, make-up and nail looks we've been desperate to copy.

But chipped nail polish? Dear oh dear! (We have to say though, we've all been there!)

After spying this snap, we then looked back over a few more of Ashley's Instagram shots and noticed the same nail colour was starting to look chipped over a week ago when she modelled her fave new bargain sunglasses – which we LOVE at £8, btw.

Oh Ashley, we know you're a busy lady, but what would your sister, Joelle James say?

As a beauty and nail expert, we imagine she would get you straight into her salon chair for one of her fabulous manicures!

Ashley's nails were even showing signs of chipping over a week ago! 18 April 2014

Failing that, Ashley should just get rid of the damage with some Bourjois 1 Second Magic Nail Polish Remover, £4.99,

In other news, we're loving this little step-by-step video which shows how Ashley creates her everyday make-up.

It even includes some of her favourite products including Kelly Brook Black Mascara, £3.99, and Burt's Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit, £3.69,

Yes, it seems Ashley loves a bargain just like the rest of us.

Check it out below. Just excuse the chipped, black nail varnish!
