Look Your Best At The Fest - Summer Festival Nail Guide

If you're only wanting a slick of colour while you're slumming it in a field then skip the nudes and go for deep, dark shades or rainbow brights. Beige, caramel, mink...they all look tatty when they get chipped (and however good the polish, they will get chipped) whereas as darker colours still look fine when a little scruffy.

For Gothic shades and jewel tones that are high gloss you can't beat Revlon. At £6.49, pick one polish for fingers and toes:
For summer neons pop to Barry M. At just £2.99 (and with Boots and Superdrug often running a 2 for £5 offer) you can afford to pick up a different shade for every nail:
There are two super simple ways to do nail art without any fuss that are quick and don't need a steady hand:

Barry M's Nail Effects is now available in Black, White Frost, Pink Fizz and Blue Print (£3.99 each) - just one coat over any nail polish leaves a cracked, animal print effect on you nails.

TIP: Once dry coat with clear polish as the Nail Effects formula drys matte and will easily chip.

Or go for high impact, low maintenance with Nail Rock Nail Wraps (£6.65) - simply trim your chosen wrap to fit, apply self adhesive side to the base of the nail then use a small hairdryer to heat strip and apply fully to the nail.

If you've got a few spare hours before your chosen Fest why not dabble in a little nail art. ASOS recently teamed up with nail artist Sophy Robson for a music inspired shoot:
