THE work of a Cornish woman was seen by more than four million TV viewers after her false nails were worn by pop sensation Ella Eyre at the Brit Awards.

Tara Stuthridge, from Zebra Nails in Falmouth, designed the set worn by the pop and R&B singer, most famous for featuring on the Rudimental track Waiting All Night.

The British performer, who is signed to Virgin EMI Records, closed the ceremony last Wednesday night in a performance with Bastille and Rudimental.

The 19-year-old, whose real name is Ella McMahon, also won the runner's-up spot for the Critics' Choice Award on the night.

Ms Stuthridge said: "Ella Eyre did wear my nail set for the whole of her Brits appearance.

"I didn't know anything about this until I was watching the programme along with everyone else though.

It was an amazing shock.

"I made the nails for Ella just as a fan of her and I noticed she loves and appreciates nail art.

"She commented on a picture of the set I did for her on Instagram and said that they're amazing.

"Her management later gave me the address to post the nails to. I had heard nothing since posting them off to London, until I spotted her wearing them during the Brits programme.

"I was searching through pictures that were appearing of Ella online while the Brits was still airing, just to confirm she really was wearing my nail set."

The nail technician posted on her Twitter profile after the star-studded event: "It's been an amazing and unexpected 24 hours since finding out the gorgeous Ella Eyre wore my nail set to the one and only Brit Awards last night.

"Just want to say thanks for all the love and support you guys have shown me.

"Ella is such a babe. She's totally made my year wearing my nails to the Brits. Have fun in LA lovely lady."
