A source at The Verne category C jail in Dorset said: “It’s like a beauty pageant after the classes.
“Some of the inmates go for bright-coloured and intricate designs – to be fair it brightens the place up a bit.
“It’s a far cry from breaking rocks on a chain gang but times have changed.”

It added: “There are also occasional courses in nail art.”
Qualified nail technicians can earn up to £18 an hour.
