Like TOWIE's Ferne McCann, Little Mix star Jesy Nelson is the latest celeb to take to Instagram to show off her 'coffin' shaped nails and - they are dead cool!


As if rocking a fabulously curly mane wasn't enough of a beauty statement, Jesy proved that she is January's biggest trendsetter as she flaunted her deep green and incredibly fierce talons courtesy of nail technicians Tony and Lily in London's Gidea Park.

Cool, right?

It looks like gorgeous Ms. Nelson is looking forward to Halloween as she emblazoned her brooding, coffin shaped digits with an actual coffin (eeek!) which was scribbled on expertly using a nail pen.

Even though the spooky celebrations are ages away, we can't help but adore the look. Here's how you can copy it in five simple steps! Yep, really.

Step One:

To prevent the deep green nail polish from leaving pesky stains, invest in a good base coat. We love Nails Inc's NailKale Superfood Basecoat, £15 which treats and strengthens as it shields from colour damage.

Step Two:

Using the three stroke method loved by manicurists everywhere, paint a strip of colour down the centre of your nail and then one on either side - but leave your ring finger free. If you're worried about chips, give the tips an extra lacquer.

Step Three:

Use O.P.I's nail polish in This Silver's Mine, £12.50 to paint the remaining nails and wait until touch dry.

Step Four:

Once your nails are completely dry, it's time to get creative! Barry M's nail pen in Black, £4.99 is so easy to use; simply trace a coffin shape around the edges using six strokes, and emblazon with a little crucifix at the top centre.

Step Five:

To get Jesy's cool, matte look finish with a slick of the Barry M Matte Topcoat, £2.99 - et voila!
