You simply wait 60 seconds after applying the topcoat, then apply one to two drops on each nail. The other plus is the formula is enriched with vitamin E and jojoba, so I felt like I was getting a cuticle treatment at the same time. I didn't lose any shine from the topcoat and two days in, still no chips. This product doesn't claim to aid chip resistance, but I feel like its played a part in my still perfect manicure. Available at Priceline on June 1.

Adele won Best Original Song at this week's Golden Globe Awards, and being her first outing since baby, we were dying to lay eyes on her! The Brit singer went sky-high with her hair and thanks to Sally Hansen, her pointy claw nails were shinier than the trophy she took home. Interestingly, the brand created an exclusive gold-flecked nail polish for the event, and it's called Pennies for Heaven. Her manicurist used a rose petal pink underneath the gold, which is a handy way to give a metallic or glitter-based polish greater depth and dimension. The same goes for using white as a base under neon and pastel polishes. So sneaky, right? Click through to see Adele's nails up close and find out how we'll be adapting this look on our talons.

On the back of the announcement Alexander Wang will take over from Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga, we think a nail tribute to the designer's simple, sporty aesthetic is in order. We fell pretty hard for the reverse t-bar sandals that hit the catwalk during his Spring '13 collection showing at New York fashion week, the silver in particular. Aluminium-style polish is perfect for some feature nail action, but it also looks super luxe when painted on all nails. The key is three coats for maximum coverage. Ready?
