Celebrity manicurist Madeline Poole talks nail trends

Be yourself

“Personality is a huge deal! A lot people will say, ‘I like everything.’ No you don’t. You have taste. You have style. You have colours that you gravitate towards, and everyone does. People can always predict what I’m going to pick." READ MORE: 5 spas with serious wow-factor

Ring finger accent nails are over

“I’ve always hated accent nails. But only on the ring finger.

Play with shape

“I like the square-letto shape, that long tapered square. Zendaya (pictured) and Kylie Jenner always wear this shape. It’s young and trendy. [If you’re going for the square-letto] definitely go a solid colour. You could try dark shades, but I also think it looks good in dusty, grey tones, and also matte colours, like a matte beige, nude or blush.

Master the “nailfie”

“To take a good picture of your hands, what I always recommend people open their camera and have a look at their hand and swivel around the room and see where the light is. You know how your face can look amazing in some light and in some light you look 150 years old? So it’s same for your nails. It’s all about finding that magic spot. Holding your hand around something helps, it elongates the fingers. It’s also really nice to incorporate your accessories and jewellery.” READ MORE: The modern way to wear seductive scents
