This Week’s Nails – Snowflakes

I’m feeling much better after yesterday’s little bout of nausea and was back in work today…and it just so happened to be our Christmas dinner at school so I had my first lot of cracker-pulling and joke-telling with my kids!

Seeing as it is getting colder and ever nearer to the big day (15 sleeps to go!) I thought I would share a festive manicure.

I ordered these snowflake stickers recently and love how they have a tiny amount of glitter in them.


I was trying to decide what colour to use as my base coat, as pretty much anything would work here, but in the end I decided on two pastel shades; Wet Cement by Sally Hansen (dreadful name but it’s kind of true!) and Eternal Optimist by Essie, which I received in my Essie ‘Festive Fingers’ box recently.

Both shades apply brilliantly and I think they complement each other well when painted on alternate nails.

I love how the stickers look on both nails – very cute and pretty on the pink and reminiscent of a Fair Isle print on the grey background.

To give this look an extra few days I finished it with a coat of Seche Vite et voila!

About hannahhotcakes

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!)
