Who said nail art isn’t for grown-ups? This sweet-but-subtle manicure will make you think again

Summer is the perfect time for a fresh new manicure. Why not celebrate everything the season has to offer with a berry twist? Give it a try yourself in four easy steps.

1. Paint nails in the perfect shade of strawberry, Essie Nail Colour in Meet Me at Sunset, £8.

2. Draw a line along the cuticle before sketching a zig-zag shape along the nail bed with Butter London Patent Shine in Bang On!, £15.

3. Dot ‘seeds’ on top of the red polish using a brush-tip black eyeliner. Try Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, £16.

4. Seal the dots and the look with Leighton Denny Crystal Top Coat, £12, for the perfect high-shine effect.
