On a previous visit to Rome, Lily James sparked all sorts of trouble when she was photographed getting close to married actor Dominic West.
But the most daring thing the actress did on a return trip to the Eternal City was pay a visit to a nail bar.
Ms James took some time out from filming her new movie, Finally Dawn, to have a manicure at Mimi Beaute, a salon popular with Italian celebrities.
She inspected the salon’s handiwork afterwards as she strolled along the city’s famous Via dei Giubbonari, dressed in a yellow vest top and black trousers – and wearing no make-up.

The Mamma Mia! actress then stopped in a bar for a bottle of water and to check her phone. But it didn’t take long before she was recognised by one of the waiting staff, who asked her for a selfie.
Ms James, 33, smiled for the camera while the waitress snapped the pair of them.
Her low-key itinerary was in marked contrast to her October 2020 trip with West, 52, whose wife was at home with their four children.
The two stars were seen cosying up together before riding on a scooter through the city centre as West – her co-star on the BBC drama The Pursuit Of Love – nuzzled Ms James’s neck.
After returning home, West and his wife Catherine FitzGerald put on a united front for journalists, shared a kiss for photographers and left a handwritten cardboard sign outside their London home that read: ‘Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together. Thank you. Catherine and Dominic.’

Ms James has never directly referred to the photos, but earlier this year spoke about the pressures of being in the public eye, saying: ‘It was a lot.’
The star has been filming Finally Dawn in Rome for some weeks. In the movie, she plays a young actress who goes to the famous Cinecittà Film Studios to audition for a role, but ends up enjoying a long night of fun where she is described as ‘finding herself’.
The independently made film, which also stars Willem Dafoe and Stranger Things actor Joe Keery, is being directed by Saverio Costanzo.
Former Downton Abbey star Ms James has been dating Queens Of The Stone Age rocker Michael Shuman since last year.
