This Week’s Nails – Lemons!

Ian and I started watching the new series of 24 last night. It is one of my favourite ever shows and I gave a little squeal of excitement when Jack appeared on screen!

I made three delicious pies last night and it was lovely coming home from work tonight knowing I had one waiting for me to go straight in the oven. Ian is playing football so I am going to have to try really hard to make sure I save half for him and don’t go back in for seconds!

This week’s nails was really just an excuse to swatch and try out the new Color Club nail varnish I received in April’s Birchbox. I have the shade Breakfast At… and I was really impressed with it.

You could get away with one coat but for longevity I added a second coat. It is a lovely bright pastel green but it has a pearlescent sheen to it which seems quite on trend at the moment.

I thought this would be a great opportunity to use these lemon filmo slices from She Sells Seashells. I got loads of these for a pound and I think this is a lovely nail art website – they have a cool Instagram account too!

I used a pair of tweezers to place these onto my nails while the nail varnish was still wet then sealed them with a generous layer of top coat.

So far, they have lasted four days (including 2 hair washes!) which is longer than I was expecting.

I think this is a fun and summery manicure and the girls in my class are going crazy for the lemon slices!

Right, I’m off for pie…I’ll share the recipe soon x

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!)
