Cadbury Mini Eggs

My all-time favorite Easter candy is Cadbury Mini Eggs. They are probably my favorite part of Easter!  The fact that the stores started putting out Easter candy in February is a wonderful and horrible thing.  Wonderful because I can start buying Mini Eggs in Feburary, horrible because I have been eating Mini Eggs since February!!!
                                 

I have been thinking about doing this design since last year and couldn't wait for Easter to get here so that I could finally complete it.  It is actually a really easy design. 
To complete the design I used the following polishes.



Wet'n'Wild - Tickled Pink - 2 coats. Once again this polish had a horrible brush!  The bristle were bent!  This is the third Wet'n'Wild poilsh that I have purchased with a bad brush!!
Sally Hansen - Mellow Yellow - This was the first time using this polish and I was disappointed.  The polish was very thin and runny!  I ended up having to use 3 coats and it still had bald spots!
Models Own - Beth's Blue - This color is just gorgeous!  This polish was also easy to work with and it was opaque in 2 coats.
Milani - White on the Spot - 2 coats. Love it!




My next step was to add the chocolate spots.  This didn't turn out exactly as I wanted it, but its not too bad.  I used Essie Little Brown Dress and my smallest dotting tool.



I finished the design with 1 coat of NYC Matte.  The thumb in smeared because I attempted to spread the dots and it didn't do what I wanted.

  8. Those are my favorite easter candy too! I've been good and avoided them at all costs so far...but its only a matter of time. Your mani isn't helping either, I can smell that chalky candy shell. *drool*
