Mani Monday – Ciaté Strawberry Milkshake

It’s only Monday and I already feel shattered! Hopefully it’s just a blip and a good night’s sleep will sort me out but I feel like I have so many things to squeeze in to the last three weeks of term.

My manicure this week is inspired by a picture I saw on Instagram this week. I love the combination of pastel pink and bright red and half-moon nails are one of my favourite looks.


I began with three layers of Ciaté Strawberry Milkshake, a soft pink. I didn’t really like this formula – it applied quite chalky and had a slightly streaky finish but I do like the colour.


I used my curved nail stickers to add some bright red half-moons. I picked Mac Shirelle for this – a bright, tomato red. I forgot I owned this and I think Mac nail varnishes are slightly underrated. This applied well and is a great shade.

I sealed the look with a layer of Seche Vite et voila!

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!)
