Laura Whitmore is clearly on a 'fabulous nails' mission right now.

Last week, it was all about her electric blue manicure with neon half moons and now the MTV presenter's nailed one of the trickiest colours out there – yellow.

Laura Whitmore nails a super-summery mani with bright yellow tips, 17June 2014

"Yellow nail varnish from #essie because it's sunny!!" Laura posted on Instagram on Tuesday (17 June) as she snapped this gorgeous close-up of her cute jewellery and even cuter manicure.

Now, we love yellow at Reveal HQ, but it's not an easy colour to get right when it comes to wearing it on your nails.

Choose the wrong shade and it can easily make your mani look dirty or worse still, tobacco-stained.

And go for anything that's even slightly glittery or pearlescent and, in our opinion, you'll have made a fatal error!

But Laura proves that it's not a colour to dismiss as it can look really cute if you get it right.

So what's the key?

Well, we reckon it looks much better on shorter, squared-off nails so if you want to get involved with some sunny nails, file yours into a neat, fairly short length.

When it comes to choosing the perfect shade, look for a blocky, colour-pop yellow that is glossy, but has no iridescence in it. And err towards a slightly warmer tone, rather than anything that looks too cool or green-tinged.

We love Maybelline Colour Show Nail Polish in Electric Yellow, £3.99, and Collection Mardi Gras Nail Polish in Canary Yellow, £1.99, which both tick all the boxes.

Apply two thin coats of colour, some glossy top coat and you can't go wrong.
