Kimberley Walsh was among a huge bevy of beauties to walk the red carpet at last night's Brit Awards... and she totally nailed it!

Rocking a deep plum polish on her long, pointed nails and gold leaf on her ring finger, we have to say, THAT is our kind of manicure.

Kimberley rocked a plum nail polish with gold leaf on her ring finger for this year's Brits, 19 February 2014

Kimberley looked totally beautiful in a sheer floral Blumarine dress at this year's awards which were held at London's O2 Arena.

And yes, we know we saw the very same gown on Bella Thorne at last year's premiere for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in Los Angeles, but we don't care. Kimberley totally made it her own with her gorgeous curves and sexy red pout.

Anyway, we're more about the fab nails than anything else!

Kimberley's nails were created by her favourite celebrity manicurist, Lucy Tucker who also created the former Girls Aloud beauty's red and gold glittery mani that we couldn't get enough of this Christmas.

Lucy works her mani magic on many-an-A-lister's nails including Emile Sande, Nicole Scherzinger and Selena Gomez.

And this look is a real beauty – chic and understated, yet totally glamorous at the same time.

To recreate it at home, first, apply a base coat. We love Nicole By O.P.I Nail Treatment Base Coat, £7.99, which looks after your nails as well as creating a protective barrier between your colour and your nails.

After leaving this to dry completely, apply two thin coats of a deep, plum nail colour like Essie Nail Polish in Bahama Mama, £7.99,

Then it's time for the glitzy, gold finish on your ring finger only. Don't worry about faffing about with actual pieces of gold leaf as it can be fiddly to apply yourself.

Instead, simply apply a gold topcoat like L'Oréal Paris Colour Nail Top Coat in Gold Carat, £4.99, which is a bargain and really beautiful.

Or if you're feeling flush, treat yourself to Rococo Gold Leaf Lacquer, £35, which leaves a truly luxurious, gold leaf finish.

Finish with a clear glossy topcoat over the rest of your nails and you're done.
