With the camo beauty trend popping up everywhere from the Autumn/Winter 2015 catwalks to Burberry's latest cosmetics collection, this #ManicureMonday, we decided to look ahead and show you how to get the look with this awesome (and glittery) camo nail art tutorial.

East London-based freelance nail artist Maddy Ayers (Maad Nails) told HuffPost UK Style how to recreate her look in three simple steps:

1. To get this spangly camo look, start off with a base coat (I used Bourgois) and then a couple of coats of a neutral/beige shade. Here I’ve gone for Nubby Sand from &Other Stories.

2. Next, add a couple of splodges of a darker brown to each nail (another &Other Stories shade here, this time Pointelle Flesh). These should be irregular shapes - some more circular, others more rectangular - so don’t worry about being precise.

3. Then layer up with more splodges of darker colours. I picked YSL Khaki Arty, American Apparel Hunter and finally Essie’s Licorice. These patches of colour can overlap one another, but avoid overloading the nail – you want to see the base colour coming through too.

4. Next up, if you want to go a little jazzier, put some sparkles over the darker brown patches. They look great with bronze-coloured glitter polish. Here I used Road Trip from Lottie London.

5. Finish up with a layer of top coat to seal the design in – China Glaze Fast Forward is a good one.
