BEAUTY: WE TRY, YOU BUY THE PERFECT PINK POLISH.

Praise be to the genius who came up with pale pink varnish. It makes even the stubbiest nails look chic and it's so light it still looks good if your painting hand's wobblier than a trifle with cellulite. But which to buy?

YSL Vernis Naturel in Porcelain Rose, pounds 13.50

This barely-there pink is very chic in a Charlotte from Sex And The City way.

Verdict: Ultra-wearable - ideal for clear varnish girls.

Rimmel 60 Seconds in Spring to Life, pounds 2.89

This salmony pink with a soft sheen gives great coverage in a single coat and is fab value for money.

Verdict: Pretty in pink without being too Barbie.

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Seduction, pounds 11.50

The slightly peachy undertones make this shimmery shade look sleek rather than sugary.

Verdict: Traditional with a twist.

Estee Lauder Pure Color in Crystal Opaline, pounds 11

Sugared almonds, pink tutus and all things girly spring to mind, but the matte finish gives it a grown-up edge.

Verdict: Looks great with a tan.

Clinique Glosswear Trio, pounds 13.50

Anyone clinging to dark wintry shades will be persuaded to lighten up with the gorgeous dusky pink from this limited edition trio.

Verdict: Fantastic for toes.
