Adults who grew up colouring in with Crayola markers can now paint themselves with the rainbow bright hues thanks to the art company's mini nail polish set.

Just in time for the summer the children's arts and crafts supply company has launched a pocket size set of eight vibrant polishes suitable for both grown ups and the little ones.

And with the latest trend for neon, the vibrant Crayola colours could not be more fashionable.

With names like, 'cotton candy' and 'robin's egg blue', the range offers a glittery finish, a metallic sheen a regular paint.

The eight bottles, sold on FredFlare.com include two pink shades, two blue, a canary yellow, purple, orange and bright red some of which even promise a scented perfume.

And painting their talons is not the only way make-up lovers and Crayola fans can make themselves pretty with the beloved colour palette.

The brand has already dabbled in cosmetics with a shiny lip gloss range in pinks and purples for around $3 at Walmart and temporary hair dye.

Crayola Hair Styx cost $7 and come in a range of three quirky colours named Wild Blue Yonder, Electric Line and Razzmatazz.

Other hair 'Hi-Lights' can be bought in wacky Jazzberry Jam and Blue Bell.

As the New York Daily News pointed out, by capitalising on the nostalgia of our childhood cultural reference points, the Pennsylvania-based company follows in the footsteps of other cosmetics brands.

MAC collaborated with Mattel for a line inspired by Barbie in 2007 while two years later, Stila paid tribute to the iconic blonde doll with their own collection of products.

Sassy Smurfette played muse to Two-Face cosmetics and Miss Piggy was honoured with her very own MAC line and a line of nail polishes at O.P.I.
