Sally Hansen

Lip gloss nails are the next nail trend that is taking inspiration from glazed skin and making this minimal mani the next big trend. Sally Hansen’s ambassador Michelle Class has all the tips to create your own lip gloss nails.

1. Prep is key, make sure you give your nails a good manicure so that you have clean lines, and your polish sits well.

2. Apply your base coat, always choose the right one for your nail type, don’t forget a lip gloss nail is a sheer nail so you want to make sure you fix any imperfections with your base coat - my go to for this would be Sally Hansen Complete care 7 in 1 Nail Treatment (€10.99).

3. Apply your chosen sheer nude colour. I like a super sheer pink to enhance the natural nail, and give that lip gloss/ balmy look. I love Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in In The Sheer (€11.49) and only one coat is the secret to having that tinge of colour and keeping it sheer.

4. Final step is to use a ultra glossy top coat, this will give you the glossy sheen you need to create that lip gloss vibe. So finish off with a good coat of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat (€11.49) to give that gel like plumping finish.


Kiss has taken the no makeup look a step further with the nude nail trend. The new Bare But Better TruNude Nail (€12.29) shades feature 3 nude shades to choose from to flatter a range of skin tones.

These fake nails look professionally done, but it takes minutes to DIY! Available in Nudies, Nude Nude and Nude Glow.


Super-glossy, ultra-shiny nails are just one sweep away. If you're too busy for a full-on mani, Rimmel London 60 Seconds Super Shine Nail Polish (€5.49) has got you covered. Glide on one stroke of this quick-dry nail polish for precise application and high-impact colour in 60 seconds flat. Oh, and it lasts for up to 10 days.
