Leighton Meester thinks gel manicures are ‘genius’.
The 25-year-old US actress, famed for playing Blair Waldorf in teen drama Gossip Girl, often pampers herself along with co-star Blake Lively, who portrays Serena van der Woodsen.
The pair swap tips on beauty, with Leighton being a particular advocate for gel nail treatments.
‘When weâ€™re filming Gossip Girl, Blake Lively and I always discuss our fave spas and treatments. I make time to hit the spa and I love getting my nails done,’ she gushed in an interview with the British edition of In Style.
‘I tend to stick to pale pinks on my hands, but I wear any colour on my toes. My manicurist just got me onto gel manicures, which donâ€™t chip for a month â€“ theyâ€™re genius!’
As much as sheâ€™s partial to looking after herself, Blake wouldnâ€™t consider herself obsessed with her appearance. She takes a relaxed approach to style, especially when it comes to her tresses.
‘Iâ€™d describe my look as pretty low-maintenance and my hair looks pretty messy most days.
When Iâ€™m not working, I condition it with Herbal Essencesâ€™ Hello Hydration Intensive Mask, then just let it air dry. It gets so much heat styling form my job, itâ€™s important to give it a break,’ she added.
