Zoya Midori + Dutch Nail Blog Giveaway

Firstly, I love this color. Wow. A perfect spring green with yellow shimmer. A bright green that doesn't look terrifying on my skin! The yellowish flash in it matched the daffodils wonderfully, so I used that as a backdrop.

My one complaint with Midori, however, is the formula. I can't remember using a gooier, gloppier formula. The brush didn't spread well, and didn't dry quickly (I believe this is because of the thickness), so I ended up banging my nails before they had fully dried. I tried to even it out with another coat, but it didn't self-level, so it just looks a bit blobby, my apologies for that. I am convinced that with thinning this polish would be perfect, but this one really drove me crazy.

In other news, Kirsten at The Dutch Nail Blog is having a surprise giveaway! In honor of her new puppies, she's put together a neat giveaway. Ever wish you could pick your own prize? The winner of this giveaway gets to select the Catrice polishes she's got her eye on, I believe for a total of 9. Open internationally. This ends on the 3oth of April, find out more here.

Until next time!
