I'm rather loving this whole Ted's Sweet Treat range from Ted Baker - not only because it's gorgeous, but because I keep getting delicious sweets along with the beautiful products (scroll down to see some retro sweet Heaven!). You can tempt a beauty blogger with a cupcake, but sweeties are the real way to her heart - well mine anyway.
I recently showed you the Ted Baker purse sprays, and now I have a stunning nail duo packaged up like a candy store front with stripey awning - too cute!
The duo I received contains a deep juicy red called Cherry Bomb and a delicious glittery pink called Sugar Rush. I couldn't wait to try them out so I used them both together to create a bit of a mix and match mani. I wouldn't have thought of doing this before, but it's a great way to spruce up an Autumn colour like a deep red, by adding such a fresh pop of girlie glitter. Sugar Rush in one coat is a lovely top coat to add a sparkle to Cherry Bomb, but give it two to three coats over a bare nail and it's holding its own as a full on opaque glitter. Everyone who saw me wearing this was asking what colour was on my ring finger, so I know it's a winner!

It's a ring pop! I haven't had one of these in forever - it was strawberry and went down nicely thank you very much :)
I know I'm in danger of saying this too much as Christmas aproaches, but I really do think this makes a fab gift for a lovely friend - I can certainly think of a few people who'd like to get this from me for Christmas, and at £8.50 I think it's great value - I would have guessed about £12 for this. The set is actually part of a permanent range, so it's not just for Christmas and will be around for birthdays, mother's day and what not throughout the year. You'll be able to pick it up from Boots and some Ted Baker stores - I can't see it on the Boots website yet but I imagine it'll pop up soon.
How do you like my glittery take on Autumn nails?
