This Week’s Nails – Sugar Skulls

After trying to sleep through that thunder and lightning last night, I woke up feeling strangely refreshed today. My cold has finally gone so I felt much better and even attempted a bit of yoga this morning to try and get back into some semblance of exercise.

We discovered a great new place to eat today and enjoyed a tapas lunch in the sunshine before coming home to sleep (Ian) and read (me) in the garden…a lovely Saturday!

Today, I wanted to share my latest manicure and these cool sugar skull nail decals. I found them online and think they are so pretty.


I wanted them to stand out so decided on Color Club’s Mod in Manhattan, a creamy off white. I really like this shade and think it is a great way to rock the white nail varnish trend if you are a little hesitant to wear a full-on white.


These are water nail decals so I simply cut out my skull, held it under water for 20 seconds and placed it on the nail.


A quick layer of Seche Vite topcoat sealed the look and this lasted me almost a week.



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!)
