This Week’s Nails – Blue Sparkles


Just a short post today to show you the nails I am rocking this week.

I decided to go for a slightly wintery theme and try out two new nail varnishes I have recently bought.

One lovely pastel blue nail varnish and a very cool glitter one. I love this type of glitter because it has a variety of glitter shapes in it meaning each nail is different and you can keep layering it until you get the desired effect.

I began by removing last week’s nail art and giving my nails a quick file. I love my glass nail file because it is meant to last forever and I really can’t stand the feel of emery boards!

I then gave my nails two coats of this fresh pastel blue colour.

When the base colour had dried, I added a couple of layers of my glitter nail varnish until I was happy each nail had an even coverage of small and large pieces on them.

To seal the look and make it last the week, I finished off with a top coat of clear nail varnish.

I love this colour combination and it reminds me of all the blue, sparkly Christmas decorations that are starting to appear in the shops now.

I’m sorry, I can’t help mentioning the ‘C’ word again. I have spent most evenings this week buying gifts online (I cannot deal with the crowds this year!) and I have the most exciting weekend planned…I will be wearing my Christmas pyjamas, drinking mulled wine, watching Christmas films and decorating our house ready for our first Christmas in it. I feel like this weekend is the calm before the storm as the subsequent weekends are already packed with visits, Christmas parties and a trip to London – bring it on! xxx

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
