Hauling ourselves through Hump Day

It’s the middle of the month and yet pay day still seems far away, we’re still deep in winter and the festive frolicking seems forever ago. Humphh.

So, my question to you all, as we drag ourselves through Hump Day for this week, and head joyously towards the weekend, is what do you do beauty-wise to get you through the week?

Do you have Monday morning products to give you game face? Any Sunday night rituals that ward off the blues? What about as the week draws to a tired close, do you, like me, whack on more perfume and just keep smiling?!

Let me know.

Hip to be square

For a nail colour that works for lunch with the ladies, a quick trolley-dash round the supermarket, and a dinner for two, look no further than nails inc. ‘Porchester Square’.

This is a muted mushroom nail polish, that’s understated, chic and guaranteed to impress. 

After you’ve applied a base coat, don’t be afraid to load the brush with colour. Rest your hand on a surface when painting nails, and leave a small gap between the polish and the cuticle so that you don’t flood the cuticle with polish.

Apply the colour in three strokes, starting in the middle and then each side. Leave to dry for five minutes, then finish a with layer of top coat.

A classy manicure in the comfort of your own home.
