Step 1. Paint nails with two coats of pastel polish like Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish in Peppermint (Boots)
Step 2. Next take a metallic polish - I used Orly Nail Lacquer in Glitz & Glamour, £8.75 (beautybay.com) - and paint the tip of each nail.
Step 3. Dip a cocktail stick in the polish then carefully apply to the tips and drag down to create a drip effect.
Step 4. Apply a coat of quick dry topcoat to seal.
