Liz here - as a stylist I am always conscious of the 'finishing touches' to our style. I see lots of nice teen nails, but I see many cracked, chipped and grubby nails too. All of the girls will make an effort for a special occasion, but it is our day to day style that determines if we are 'stylish' in the true sense of the word. Sophie does a great job keeping her own nails and can even do her own french maniacure if she wishes...

If you are struggling with getting your nails right, it might be a good idea to invest in a professional maniacure at a salon. Sophie had a maniacure done in Spain about 3 years ago and since then has become really good herself. Toe nails should be square and just above the top of the toe. Finger nails can be rounded, but I prefer a slighly square look (that's the way the professionals do them).

A base coat prevents your nails from becoming discoloured from the darker or red nail lacquers. My favourite brand right now is Nails Inc. They have some wonderful colours. Auntie Bee often comes up trumps with a gorgeous colour like this one on Sophie's nails...
