The "squoval" is over. The square-tip is dead. The new look for nails? Kick-ass claws, the likes of which Rihanna and Adele have been sporting of late.

Super-long, incredibly pointy and only obtained with the help of a nail technician, these talons look fierce but are probably better suited to the kind of gal who doesn't have to type for a living and certainly doesn't need to take out contact lenses.

For the rest of us, a pack of stick-on Nail Glitz (£14.99 – £29.99, nazilaloveglamour.com) means you can nail the trend – but remove them when real-life calls.
