The best bright nail polishes: A splash of colour on your fingers and toes
A fresh coat of paint isn't just a cheap and easy way to cheer up your home; it works well on fingers and toes, too – especially when the sophisticated shades of winter make way for the brights of spring.
The current trend for nail art isn't going anywhere, but if you're too cack-handed to tackle it yourself, opt instead for a splash of colour that will hide a multitude of sins and smudges.
While bright colours are certainly fun, any chips tend to be really noticeable – which means it's time to remove the whole lot and give another shade a whirl.
La Laque Couture in No 50 Bleu Celadon
Usually, I'm not a fan of blue nail polish, but will make an exception for this pastel version which is perfect for summer feet.

Nail Lacquer in Flaming Rose
A tie-in with the up-coming 'Maleficent' movie, this rich red calls to mind fresh blood, but sadly doesn't magic any wearers into Angelina Jolie's image.
