This Week’s Nails – Ciate’s Sharp Tailoring

Did anyone else look out of their bedroom window with baited breath today, hoping to utter those sacred words ‘Snow Day’?! We had a light dusting near us but just not quite enough to justify staying at home and pulling on our hats and wellies for a day of fun…I’m keeping my fingers crossed it will happen soon!


After last week’s rather jazzy nail offerings, this week is a slightly more muted affair. My base colour is Sharp Tailoring by Ciate. Described on their website as ‘a shimmering oyster beige’, this is a classic muted grey tone with a little bit extra in the form of a subtle golden shimmer (which I’m not too sure my photos managed to pick up.)

I love a grey nail and this is now a firm favourite in my collection. Once again, I was really impressed with the coverage and staying power of the Ciate formula and I am currently on Day 6 with only 1 chip which I did trying to get a staple out of the wall #teacherproblems


I wanted to add a little bit of nail art detail so attatched two silver studs on my ring finger and thumbs. Sealed with a generous layer of Seche Vite, these decals have stayed put brilliantly and are showing no signs of budging either.

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!)
