­This Week’s Nails – Ciate’s Cupcake Queen

Hello! Still going with those New Year resolutions?! Despite aching all over, I dragged myself out of bed again for another run in the rain this morning to make up for the fact that I baked and then ate a massive slice of pie last night…everything in moderation eh?!


Today I just wanted to share a simple nail look. I do love my nail art but plain painted nails work for me too and after enjoying the Ciate advent calendar throughout December, I now have a whole new range of shades to try out which makes me very excited.

I chose a bright pink colour to see me through from Boxing Day to New Year and this shade is called Cupcake Queen.


Two coats were all I needed and the formula has lasted a whole week with no chips.

It wasn’t the glossiest of finishes but a layer of Seche Vite helped with that.

I was really impressed with the staying power of this Ciate polish and look forward to working my way through all 24 bottles!

I will be back tomorrow with a new blog feature….oooh the excitement! 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!)
