Mani Monday – Essie Eternal Optimist

A short post before I head off to my Pilates class tonight. This week, I cut my nails short and wanted something quite nude to wear. I picked up this Essie bottle in the shade Eternal Optimist and love the dusky pink colour. It is a lovely creamy formula and I only needed two layers on my nails. I wish I could find a lipstick in this shade too!

I decided to jazz things up with some nail gems and found these golden-orange ones included in a nail art pen. I quite like the clash of colours and these look different colours in different lights from a golden yellow to a coppery orange.

I sealed these with a thick layer of Seche Vite which usually does the trick – as always, I am hoping to get a couple of days wear from this look before the gems start pinging off!


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!)
