Mani Monday – Double Bubblegum

Hello and Happy Monday! I’m just back from Pilates (braving cropped leggings despite the rain!) and am looking forward to a chicken and avocado burger for dinner with new Game of Thrones. However, before I inhale that, I wanted to write a quick post about this week’s nails.

I have now not bought any new nail varnish in 2016 (apart from top and basecoats) and am thoroughly enjoying shopping my stash and rediscovering some gems in my collection.

This pretty lilac/blue shade was originally from Ciaté’s Ice Cream Collection but I received it in one of my Christmas advent calendars. I love the pretty pastel shade and despite having some nail art plans in mind, once I had painted it on I decided it looked so nice and left it alone.

As with all Ciaté varnishes, I found this had good pigmentation and only needed two layers on my nails. It has so far lasted five days with only one chip which is pretty good for me! 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!)
