Alexa Chung's Nail and Manicure Rules


There’s not much about Alexa Chung that we’re not totally obsessed with from her enviable style to her awesome hair (now re-complete with new fringe) to her many LOLs. So we were pretty excited to chat to the style maven about all things nails. After all, Ms Chung is now the official nail expert, having just collaborated with beauty mavericks Nails Inc to create her very own collection. Read on for Alexa's mani secrets...

1. She’ll always have a manicure over a pedicure

“I hate people touching my feet- accidents can happen in the pedicure chair with my kick reaction.”


2. She keeps her nails simple for a business meeting

“To counteract my hyperactive vibe, I’d probably go for Nails Inc Cashmere Polish to keep things muted and fairly sensible.”

3. She makes an effort for a date

“Although these rarely happen to me, I like Nails Inc Alexa Sequin Polish to jazz things up.”

4. She’s not a fan of matching her nails and toes

“I don’t really have a preference- it depends where I’m going and what I’m doing, but I suppose anything too matchy-matchy isn’t my thing.”

5. She wants to get girly this autumn

“In my opinion, this autumn should be all about pale pinks- the ultimate girly manicure.”

6. She’s a big fan of textured polishes

“I wore a great crushed velvet Carven dress for my 30th birthday- I would love to see that texture in a nail varnish.”

7. She likes wacky nail art

“I just tried a rainbow but it took forever- I saw someone do aliens the other day in green glitter and would love to do that too.”

8. She never uses hand cream

“I just use a Decleor body cream.”

9. She’s prefers unusual nail colours

“Right now, I’m loving the Nails Inc Kale shade - it’s a dark green colour which is so unique.”

10. She wants red nails for her wedding

“It depends what I’m wearing but a classic red goes with everything.”
