This Week’s Nails – Essie’s Hide and Go Chic

I don’t usually dedicate a whole post to a new nail varnish but I think I can make an exception for Essie!


I was on the look-out for a deep autumnal shade for my nails and fell in love with this colour. Hide and Go Chic (gotta love the name!) is from Essie’s Spring 2014 collection but I think it is well suited to this time of year. It is a deep, jewelled blue turquoise but very easy to wear.

The formula is great and you could probably get away with just one coat but I layered on a second just so that it lasted a bit longer.

I paired this colour with a set of nail wraps, also from Essie. This gorgeous calligraphy print, Love to Love You, was really easy to apply and have so far lasted well after 4 days.


It’s Bake Off time now so I’m afraid today’s post is going to be short but sweet! 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!)
