Today's new issue

Tuesday can only mean one thing girls… Grazia! Yep, the new and hot-off-the-press issue is on news-stands and is filled with some rather tip-top stories, if we do say so ourselves. Best of all, you can get the scoop on the hottest new nails shades taking the beauty world by storm. They’re kinda hard to spot because they are camouflage, literally! In fact, when we think of a camo nail we instantly think of Rihanna and her army-esque ensembles, so hope this is a trend she might take note of and start wearing on those ghetto-fabulous hands of hers. Come of RiRi, we know you're a big Grazia fans so do us a favour and don an army nail. Pleaseee!

Grazia Team Beauty is pretty obsessed, as you can probably tell, and we’re finding it hard to pick our No.1 shade. One member of the team has even gone so far as try a different colour on every nail - crazy! The trick with this one is to do at leasts 2 coats of colour, maybe even 3, to achieve a uniform and intense shade of green. And always finish with a glossy top coat to give the colour shine. Here we’ve picked our top nail shades as chosen by Grazia Team Beauty…

Liz Hambleton, Beauty Director: “I love YSL La Laque Couture in Khaki Arty, £ because it’s the perfect trans-seasonal shade that will take me into Autumn in style.”

Angelica Hermon, Beauty Co-ordinator: “My fave is Dior Vernis in 608 because I love a deep khaki colour in my wardrobe as well as on my hands and this one hits it’s bang on the head.”

Marianne Jones, Deputy Editor: “I’m a big fan of Mavala Nail Varnish in Bronze Green because it’s got a slight pearlescent shimmer to it and is a really flattering shade of green.”

Rose Beer, Beauty Writer:“My top choice is Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Frenzy, £xx because it’s not too dark which means I can wear it now with my summer dresses and not feel too dark and autumnal yet.”

Emily Maddick, New Editor: “Nails Inc. Nail Varnish in Foubert’s Place, £xx is just to die for – it’s that perfect shade of brown-meets-green which I love wearing on my toes so for me it’s No.1.”
