Mani Monday – Nude and Navy

After weeks of nursing my broken nails back to a decent length and condition, I can finally start painting them again. It probably did me good to have a break from weekly manicures to enjoy an overload of nail treatments but I’m also excited for a bit of colour again.

One of my favourite podcasts (which is coming back for a second series soon) is Lena Dunham’s ‘Women Of The Hour’, a feminist chat with a variety of women on issues such as friendship, work and body image. On her thumbnail, Lena has a really cool manicure so I decided to try and replicate it this week.


My Mum has just come back from Spain and as well as a bottle of tequila, she bought me a new nude nail varnish from a Spanish pharmacy which I was keen to try out. I’m not sure of the brand or colour, but I really like the colour and the brush was so thick it made it really easy to apply.


After two coats of the nail varnish, I grabbed this navy shade by ELF and a nail dotter to create a polka dot at the centre of each nail bed.

This is a very simple yet effective manicure that I am keen to try again with different colours.

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!)
