Louise Thompson went for a super-dazzling manicure this week – choosing the perfect nail colour to complement her fabulous tan.

The Made In Chelsea star showed off her gold, sparkly nails on Instagram on Tuesday (21 July) and what a great combo. Gorgeous tan and sexy, metallic nails? Tick.

Louise has been living the dream in California for the past few weeks, taking in LA, Malibu, Palm Springs and everything in between. And yes, we're happy to admit, we're totes jealous.

And the reality star made us even more jealous of this classic beauty look.

"GOLD FINGER-S and a great tan," Louise posted while pouting and posing for her close-up (above).

This season has been all about the mono-coloured mani which is a refreshing change from some of the crazy nail art we've seen over the past few summers. Not that we mind either – you know us, we LOVE any kind of celebrity manicure!

From Mollie King's barely-there nails to Kylie Jenner's pastel yellow talons, what we love most about this one-colour trend is how darn simple it is to copy – all that fuss and bother over intricately painting designs on each and every nail can be ever so tricky sometimes...

To nail Louise's look, stick with short nails (this looks much cooler when you're wearing metallics), then paint your nails with a shiny gold polish like our absolute favourite, Revlon Nail Enamel in Gold Coin, £6.49, boots.com.

When this has dried, finish with a top coat of Rimmel Glitter Bomb in Bling Thing, £3.99, boots.com to add a little extra sparkle.

Just add fake tan – because we can't all jet off to California – and you're sorted.
