Demi Lovato is no stranger to bold, eye-catching beauty looks. Take note of her aquamarine hair and bevy of impressive nail art designs, for instance. And this November, you can re-create some of Demi's signature manicure styles. In between judging The X Factor US, appearing on Glee, and preparing for her tour, she found time to collaborate with nail colour brand The New Black on five limited-edition nail art kits, so you can DIY your own Demi-esque manicure.
Each of the five kits showcases looks designed by Demi's manicurist, Stephanie Stone, which are rather easy to do yourself. Highlights of the collaboration include In Love, a vibrant, five-piece violet kit with glitter polish and diamond studs, and Shattered, a three-piece kit with gold studs and brush-on foil. Each of these five kits will be available from November 4 exclusively at Ulta in the US — here's hoping the line hits Australia soon!

The "We Can't Stop" singer strutted her stuff on the red carpet for the premiere of Paranoia, and she was looking flawless from head to toe.
