Looking for a thrifty and quick way to update your look? Search no further than your very own fingernails!

A trend that’s been rife in the blogosphere for a good while now, nail art finally hit the catwalk in a big way this season.  Not content with the plainly painted nail, nails have become more intricate than ever.

At Topshop’s Unique show, the golden girls had hieroglyphic nails to complement their Egyptian-style looks, whilst at Philip Lim, talons were tinted nude with an intricate black half moon just above the cuticle – so chic!

We’ve been searching for the ultimate nail art pen to perfect our painterly designs for a while now, and Topshop has come up trumps with its precision-tip tool.

Created with a felt tip-style nib (rather than those pesky metal points), doodling on your nails has never been easier or as effective. We’ll be scrawling seasonal holly on ours ready for those Christmas parties – here’s hoping the rest of the collection ends up in our stocking!

Topshop nail art pen, £6.50, available at Topshop.
