Vicky Pattison channelled her inner lady this week when she showed off a classic red manicure on Wednesday (22 October)...

And it was nothing less than super-long, super-pointed and super-shiny for the Geordie Shore star, who showed off her sexy nails on Instagram before a night out with the girls.

Classic and gorgeous, Vicky's long red manicure is a winner! 22 October 2014

"New nails by the fabulous @dailynailspa!!!" Vicky posted. "Nice classy red!!! Love them!!!"

Well, why wouldn't you love them, Vicky P?

As we all know, nail trends and colours come and go quicker than X Factor winners.

But red is like the LBD of the nail world. A classic for a reason and a colour you really can't go wrong with – especially when you get them done by a pro rather than having to painstakingly nail the look yourself.

Vicky's long talons were painted a deep grey shade just two days ago at the Professional Beauty North Show in Manchester, 20 October 2014

Vicky's power-dressed nails were created by top nail technician Samantha Rolf who used Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish in one of their fabulous red shades (we love Hot Rod Red, btw!).

But we don't all have Samantha at the end of our roads, so if you fancy copying Vicky's look at home, just remember to:

1. ALWAYS apply a base coat first as red is a bit of a monkey when it comes to staining your nails.

2. Never rush a red manicure because for it to look chic and sophisticated (rather than somewhat trashy) it needs to be perfectly painted. End of.

And 3. Always finish with a glossy, clear topcoat to create that glass-like, professional finish.
