Snooki thinks Kim Kardashian needs to have extra false eyelashes on standby for when she gives birth.

The former 'Jersey Shore' star - who welcomed her son Lorenzo in August with her fiance Jionni LaValle - has offered the 'Kourtney & Kim Take Miami' star some tips for how to prepare for the birth of her child in July and how she should occupy herself during labour.

The 25-year-old MTV celebrity baby correspondent, whose real name is Nicole Polizzi, told ''I waited 27 hours and the whole time I just put on makeup and watched cartoons.''

Snooki admitted she found being in hospital ''boring'' because of the all white decor and thinks Kim should wear a bright lipstick such as pink or red to make herself feel better.

She said: ''Stay away from the nudes,'' adding: ''Remember to bring an extra pair of eyelashes in your purse in case you are not at home when your water breaks, do like I did and bring a whole box.''

Snooki also suggested that Kim, 32, bring some Dolce & Gabbana leopard print nightgowns to the hospital because the normal ones are ''ugly'', as well as a pair of diamond studs so she can ''look really cute.''

She warned Kim that she should get a pedicure beforehand and bring a few extra accessories like scarves to the hospital to make herself feel better about her post baby body.

She said: ''You don't want any gross calluses because your feet are literally in the air for everyone to see.

''Trust me, you are going to be bloated and you're going to have like a million double chins so you are gonna wanna cover that s**t up.''
