And one woman who used to spend £60 a month on getting her nails done has figured out a way to cut down on costs while also keeping up her beauty regime.

Sam added that she's worked out how much money her new hobby has saved her, and it's a "fortune".
"I used to go twice a month to go and get my nails done, and it used to cost me £30 a time – so that’s £60 a month just on my nails," she said.
