Amy Childs has gone all Jessie J on us with her latest French manicure – we're talking long, super-sharp and polished to perfection!

The former TOWIE star's nails might not be not the most practical length in the world, but since when did the words 'Amy Childs' and 'practical' belong in the same sentence, anyway?

Amy, who's just returned from a week's holiday in Dubai, had her nails done by owner of Essex Beauty Group, Gemma Norcross (wife of Kirk's brother Dan, btw) on Tuesday (6 May).

The reality star had posted a picture of a similar manicure on Instagram the day before saying how much she wanted to recreate the look...

"Really want my nails like this," she wrote, alongside a picture of some VERY long and ridiculously pointed, French manicured nails.

"Anyone no [sic] where I could have these type of nails done?"

Well, it seems her question was answered, as just one day later, Amy's new nail look was complete.

Gemma created Amy's new stiletto-shaped look using O'Nine acrylic and if you want a similar, super-long result, we suggest you do the same.

Either that, or you'd better start growing your nails pretty sharpish!

For a more wearable look, however, file your nails into a slim, pointed shape – just remember never to file too far down the sides of your nails as this can weaken them and cause them to break.

Next, paint your nails with a nude polish, then go for white on the tips and finish with a shiny topcoat.
