Mani Monday – Essie Chillato

Hello and welcome to a new weekly nail feature. I wanted to start with what is possibly the shade of the summer – Chillato by Essie.


I picked this up in Washington on the last day of our holidays when we were trying to use up all of our pennies. We must have fed about 100 coins into the self-service till machine so apologies to those in the queue behind us!

Essie is my favourite nail brand and I was fairly restrained, only buying three bottles when we were away, but this shade is the winner. Part of their 2015 summer collection, Chillato has been constantly popping up on my Instagram and Bloglovin feeds and, as I am prone to falling for beauty blogger hype, I just had to try it out.


I would describe it as pistachio green and it just looks so clean, fresh and summery on the nails. I had a quick look through my nail hamper (yes, I have a hamper for my nail varnishes, let’s move on) and I don’t own anything like this. It took three layers to be completely opaque and looked amazing with a tan.


…just don’t do what I did and put in your make up bag without tightening the lid or, like me, you’ll end up with it all over your favourite lipstick! 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!)
