In fact when we wear it, it is the nail polish colour we get the most comments on.

The key is to start very slow, and build. Dip your brush on the palette, tap excess, and lightly move in a circular motion around all the highest points of your face and along the jawline. We've got five, firm favourites (go on, say that five times fast), and there's one at every price point.
