My Easter Manicure with MIYO

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

I had big plans for my nails yesterday, but as usual time ran out and all I had was two coats of polish that didn’t give full coverage. So today I fixed it up a bit so I can show it to you.

I’ve tried some creme polishes from the new brand MIYO, the pink Cocktail that you’ve probably seen on other blogs a while ago, and the yellow Sunny. I ended up with four coats of each to make it even and then a coat of Seche Vite. The formula is pretty nice on these, and they dry pretty fast. But to be honest I generally suck at applying creme polishes, that’s one of the reasons I usually stick to shimmery ones. If you’re better than me you can probably get away with two-three coats.

The photos are taken in cloudy weather:

Cocktail is a beautiful and soft bubblegum pink.

Sunny is a nice yellow polish, it’s not so warm so that it leans to orange, it’s just plain yellow. It’s actually my second yellow creme ever, the first one being a 15 year old dried up thing from some cheap brand that I don’t remember at the moment.

So, to make this more Easter like I took my dotting tools for a spin, and ended up with this creation:

Now, what’s that I’m holding?

That rooster looks mighty scared.. =)

I’ve used the following polishes for the design:

White – China Glaze Snow
Turquoise – China Glaze Aquadelic
Orange – Viva La Diva 115
Black – NYX Ink Nail art

I should probably have used white on all the eyes and not just the thumb, but I guess they look okay that way as well.

I hope you’re all having a wonderful Easter!
