It might be April Fool’s day (at least it was until about an hour ago), but today’s deal of the day is no joke.

While we all love a new dress, sometimes accessories shout loudest, and this bright red nail varnish from Yves Saint Laurent is definitely calling out to us.

Gucci’s spring/summer 2011 show saw models with popping pillar box nails from make up supremo Pat McGrath, and if you want a burst of designer bright, you can echo this look with YSL‘s colourful collection.

We love YSL‘s La Laque for its chip-free varnishes which really go the distance, and we’re feeling inspired to channel a lazy afternoon in London referencing all its iconic reds – this hot spring shade should be worn now for an especially bright summer time lift.

The secret to making this scarlet shade work? Keep nails short and shapely – it’ll transform your talons from trashy to high fashion.

Yves Saint Laurent La Laque nail lacquer, £16.50 £14.85, available at House of Fraser. BUY NOW!
