A bespoke ‘Murray Manicure’ has been created by a team at a London nail art festival for people wanting to help celebrate Andy Murray’s success at Wimbledon.

The manicure has been put together by nailgirls London for the UK’s first Nail Art Festival, which will take place this weekend.

Murray faces Jerzy Janowicz this afternoon to fight for his place in the Wimbledon final.

The free Nail Art Festival will be held tomorrow and Sunday at the Ilford Exchange Shopping Centre.

Leading nail art specialists, usually seen backstage at fashion shows, will be on hand to inspire London crowds on how to use nail art to make a fashion statement, and visitors will be able to get ‘tips for their tips’ before the trends hit the runway.

There will be live demonstrations on how to create impressive nail designs at home, and work from Marian Newman, the nail stylist behind Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman, and P Diddy, on display.

Free talks include Joanna Shiers from Bijoux Editrix talking about this season’s hottest nail art trends, and Sam Biddle and Rebecca Orme from Original Sugar showing audiences how they can stay ahead of the trends.

Biddle said: “Nails provide the perfect canvas for creativity and artistic expression, which is why nail art has become the must have fashion accessory. It can complete a look, but also make a stand alone statement not only on runways but in workplaces, universities, at parties, on holidays and at festivals.

‘”The best thing about nail art is that it can easily be created at home and the Nail Art Festival 2013 will provide the opportunity for nail specialists like myself, to share our tips on how to create the latest fashion forward looks.

“London is a centre for fashion and creativity and this festival will also explore how far nail art can go - encouraging people to get painting and see how creative they can get.”
