Mani Monday – Etude House Ice Cream Nails

My nails are not in great condition at the moment so I decided to cut them really short and pile on the conditioning treatments last week. They seem to be slightly healthier looking but when they are short, I don’t like wearing dark nail varnish and when I was looking through my stash for a nude, I rediscovered this bottle from Korean brand Etude House.

This is such cute packaging, something which is commonplace with Korean products. I am actually going to South Korea this summer for a day as part of our Japanese cruise and I plan on stocking up on unique beauty items when I’m there.

This ice-cream bottle contains the shade Strawberry Stars Candy: a pale pastel pink with pink, purple and blue glitter pieces. I like the speckled finish this gives as you add more layers and it always reminds me of Mini-Eggs (sidenote: I have already spotted these and Creme Eggs in supermarkets!)

I used two layers of polish and then finished with a layer of Seche Vite which helped smooth down the odd piece of glitter that wasn’t sitting flat against the nail.

I’m planning on only wearing nail varnish for half the week (or when my manicures usually start to chip) then having a few days ‘off’ applying treatments to try and remedy my rather sorry-looking nails.

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!)
