Holly Willoughby is regularly the envy of women everywhere, with her fabulously fashionable outfits and immaculate hair and make-up.
Her Instagram posts of her daily outfits and make-up looks leave fans clamouring over her latest dress or product choice. And things she wears or uses regularly sell out, and quickly – take her chosen mascara for example.
And this week’s beauty revelation from Holly is about nail care – namely, how she creates that stunning, natural nail colour. But it’s not as straight forward as you’d think…
The This Morning presenter posted a gorgeous make-up free selfie debuting her pretty new manicure. In the post, Holly thanked nail artist Ann Nails London for the nails. She wrote “Thank you @annnailslondon for my nails as always… you’re the best!!!! 💕💅🏻”
But the post only left fans wondering which nail polish Holly, and Ann, had used to achieve the stunning neutral effect. One fan asked, “what colour is this?”, while another echoed the question – “what is this colour? 💖💖”
Other Instagram users praised the lovely look, saying “What is that colour… love it”, and “Love the au natural look x”, while another wrote, “Nice Colour”.
So how DID Holly get the perfect nude manicure?
According to her nail artist, the enviable shade was actually the result of a combination of two colours. Replying to followers on her own account, Ann revealed that she had applied both CND’s Shellac range in a peach-pink ‘Bare Chemise’ and the more neutral, ‘Powder My Nose’.
Ann admitted that in order to suit Holly’s flawless skin tone, she paired the two shades together to create the bespoke look.
The chip-free nail varnish is reportedly a favourite at beauty salons, and promises a “crystal shine” with “zero dry time”. Sounds pretty good to us!
So we know what you’re wondering. Where do we get our hands on the colours? Sadly, the range isn’t readily available in shops in the UK, but you can snap it up on handy old Ebay! Or request the combination when you pop in salon for your next Shellac.
