Mani Monday – Navy and Gold

I have now finished work for Christmas so am feeling relaxed and eating my body weight in mince pies and party food on a daily basis!

I really love this week’s manicure. I think the combination of navy and gold is lovely and the dusting of glitter makes the nails looks really Christmassy.

I started with a base coat of Essie’s Style Cartel, my favourite navy blue. I looked for ages to find this shade and every time I wear it I’m reminded of how much I like it.

The glitter is a Nails Inc bottle in Chelsea Embankment. I wasn’t prepared for how packed with glitter this formula was so needed a very light touch to get this effect. I basically packed glitter on around the cuticle, gradually fading out how much I used as I reached halfway along the nail. As always, some nails look a bit better than others but I am really pleased with the overall effect.

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!)
