New Years Eve is all about Glitz & Glam and one of the best accessories you have is right at your fingertips!!!
When I have a fresh manicure I feel preened and confident, it's just perfect to have gorgeous sparkly nails when toasting your champagne glass and midnight!
Ted Bakers beauty range is so pretty, and ideal for building up your collection of nail tools to get you started! I was lucky enough to be sent a few of their items and I wanted to share with you have I've done my nails ready for NYE!
The Golden Girl Duo consists of one shimmer nail varnish 'Golden Girl' and a glitter nail varnish 'Totally Twinkie'. Both contain 9ml and the set is available at Boots for £8.50.
To start I removed my old nail varnish and made sure my nails were 100% clean. Next I pushed back the cuticles and shaped. I have previously had red nails for about 2 weeks so the nail scissors were perfect for cutting back any nails that were too long. After this I shaped all my nails with a file.
I picked up Golden Girl and applied two coats - it was so easy to apply, the brush is medium thickness so it applied really quickly. This polish had a lot more shimmer then I expected and looked stunning in the sunlight.
Now if you just like gold nails you could quite easily stop here, but I for one LOVE glitter and will use it at any opportunity!!!
Next I added 2 coats of the glitter nail varnish. I am used to using Barry M Glitter but I may be swayed over to Ted Baker... it is chunkier and the colour is more of a cool gold then a yellow gold which looks so gorgeous on. The varnish was very thick to apply so you do need to work quickly - you may find after a couple of months of use it would be best to add a few drops of nail varnish removed to thin it back out.
Once all the layers were dry I finished off with some Top Coat to smooth everything off and to make sure these gorgeous golden tips last!!!
I'm really impressed with the Ted Baker beauty products - the packaging is gorgeous, they are high quality and super easy to use. You can find the full range in your local Boots of HERE. Make sure you keep an eye for for 342!!!
How are you having your nails this NYE?
