Barry M Prickly Pear And A Bunny

Hello my lovelies! As promised yesterday, I have another post from the Easter challenge for you today. If you haven't seen yesterday's post (link here), I will just mention that Romanian Easter is on Sunday, so I'm not just crazy late with the Easter challenge. Today's theme was bunnies and I tried my luck at free hand nail art. Well, let me just point out that I haven't done free hand in a while and I suck at it more than ever. My bunny looks exactly like the ones I used to draw when I was 5. But let me first show you the base polish I used.

Barry M Prickly Pear is the second of the Gelly polishes I got. It's a lovely lilac color with a very glossy finish. I was surprised to find out that I don't have any dupes for this polish in my collection. It's more blue toned than other lilacs I have, and it actually photographed very blue so I had to alter the color to make it look more accurate. A lot of people complained about the sheerness of this one, but I didn't have any issues. It is a bit more sheer than the other one I tried, however I managed to get it opaque in 2 medium coats. I was expecting a very sheer jelly from the reviews online, so I was thinking that maybe I would use it for jelly sandwiches. As usual, this dried very shiny, so there is no top coat in the pictures. Again I had the same issue with it drying slower than other polishes, which makes fast drying top coat a must in my opinion.

And now for the nail art. I used a dotting tool to make dots with Barry M Blueberry on all but the ring finger. There I painted my weird looking bunny using some thin brushes and a few polishes. The grey is Rimmel Grey Matter and the pink is Kallos 54.


I wish I had done some artificial light photos of this, because the dots don't really stand out in this light. They were more contrasting in real life. I took this manicure off pretty quickly, because I didn't like the bunny at all. I also considered redoing it but I wasn't really into this theme and knew I wasn't going to do anything better. The manicure for tomorrow on the other hand came out great and I can't wait to show it to you. Until then, go see what the other girls have prepared for today's theme:
