The struggle is real. At least it would be, if Sally Hansen hadn't released new Miracle Gel lacquers that deliver the high-shine and hardwearing qualities of a professional mani - except that you can do it yourself, at home, in your pyjamas, for a fraction of the cost. Win.

The colours in the limited edition Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Tribal Collection scream autumn (think a dusty pink, warm taupe, ochre and sky blue). But if you always struggle to choose the right colour for your skin tone, hear this: "Look at the hue - the warmth or coolness in your skin," guides Sally Hansen Global Colour Ambassador Madeline Poole. "If you have undertones of pink/red, nail colours with blues in them are more flattering for your complexion. If your undertone is more neutral, golden or olive, yellow-based shades - colours with more warmth - will look especially fantastic for you."
