The Sunday Night Manicure



Hello lovelies!

I hope you are all having a good weekend! I have been crippled with a new wisdom tooth coming up the past few days so my weekend has consisted of ice-packs, painkillers and blogging! Every week on a Sunday I have my little Sunday evening ritual which I actually blogged about here and every week I always have to paint my nails in preparation for the following week. I always feel so much better with freshly painted nails. 

Firstly I clean my nails to make sure that all the old nail polish is fully gone. I normally use my Sally Hansen nail polish remover or my Bourjois 1 Second Remover but I have run out of both of these so that is why they are not pictured! I then use my cheap as chips Essence buffer to make sure my nails are nice and smooth and the edges are nice and square. If needed I'll trim my nails because lately I've been having my nails a lot shorter than normal. While working in an office long nails are really not your friend! Next I use my ELF Cuticle Pusher to make sure my cuticles are all pushed back and looking neat, after applying some of my Ciate Cuticle Oil I'm ready to apply my colour. I've been loving the  Rimmel Salon Pro line lately and one colour that has stood out to me the most and that I have been wearing a lot the past few weeks has been Hip Hop. It's a gorgeous red/orange shade that looks really nice with a tan. Then I top it all off with a layer of Seche Vite which I think makes any nail polish look amazing and last for ages! 

After all that I feel much more prepared for my week, which does seem a bit sad but it is the little things in life! Have you any recommendations for colours you think I'd like? If so please leave your suggestions below!

  4. Great post! I find doing my nails to be quite difficult and it's great to see how other people's routines are. I've yet to try the Rimmel salon pro, but I will definitely be on look out for this shade! Have you tried Topshop's Pillar Box, it's one of my faves!

  5. aw I like the colour! I'm rubbish with manicure routines.. I just pick a colour, paint it on as quick as I can (usually really messy) then wait impatiently for it to dry!!
