Made in Chelsea's Lucy Watson has become the latest star to flaunt a classic, nude manicure this winter.

And we have to say, her chic, vanilla nails are living proof that sometimes less really IS more!

Nice nails, Watson. It seems nude polishes are not going away – which we're v pleased about! 8 January 2015

Lucy follows the likes of fellow former MIC star Millie Mackintosh and The Saturdays' Rochelle Humes who have both seriously styled out their nude manicures in the last few months.

And while we love to drool over intricate, beautifully designed nail art (yes, that means you Bella Thorne!), there's something rather fabulous about a simple, one-colour manicure.

Especially on such short, perfectly shaped nails like Lucy's.

Lucy often gives us a close-up look at her hair, make-up and nails before a night out, pictured here on New Year's Eve, 31 December 2014

Lucy showed off her vanilla nails on Instagram on Thursday (8 January) and while we were initially a bit distracted by the classic Chanel handbag in the background (shallow, us?), once we got a glimpse of those nails, we couldn't tear ourselves away.

Why do we love them so much? Well for one, the length is spot-on for Spring 2015 – not too long and not too short, but shaped so that each nail works perfectly with the next.

Her nails and cuticles are also in amazing condition and they've been painted brilliantly (all your own work, Lucy?) and topped off with a shiny topcoat for a totally professional-looking result.
