Ferne McCann enjoyed her 9th day of 100 Days of Happiness this week with a fresh, wintry manicure we're completely in love with.

Don't get us wrong, we'll never tire of checking out celebrities' crazy nail art and long, stiletto talons, but there's something very refreshing about Ferne's simple, slate grey mani...

The reality star showed off her super-shiny nails on Instagram on Tuesday (11 November), after enjoying a night at the world premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 when she joined boyfriend Charlie Sims on the red carpet, along with fellow TOWIE ladies Jess Wright and Samantha Faiers.

"Fresh nails today always make me happy," Ferne posted along with a close-up snap of her shiny new nails.

We've seen a lot of shorter, more natural-looking nails on the red carpet in recent weeks and we have to say, we're all over the ease and practicality of real nails above falsies!

Ferne's mani came courtesy of Claire Tipler who owns Tips Nail Bar in Raymond Bottone Hair Salon, Brentwood, Essex.

Claire is a big fan of IBD Gel Nail Colours and by the looks of the shine on Ferne's tips, we'd put money on this being a gel polish (Viking Winter perhaps?).

If you want to copy the look at home, however, try Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Nail Enamel in Ace of Spades, £6.99, or Collection Lasting Gel Colour Nail in In The Shadows, £3.19, which both give that glossy, gel-effect finish.

Apply a base coat first, then two coats of polish before finishing with some extra shiny top coat and you'll have a Ferne finish in minutes.
