UPDATED APRIL 2

Zoya Sweet With Easter Hello Kitty Water Decals

A day late with this but I still wanted to post it since I took and edited the photos already. This was a quick and dirty manicure I wore for Easter, though I can’t say it was one of my best.

Zoya Sweet with Hello Kitty Easter Water Decals

I started with Zoya Sweet, a bubblegum pink creme. I was not very happy with the application. It went on pretty patchy with a fair amount of balding. It looked okay with two coats on my right hand but for some reason I needed three on my left to get adequate coverage, and then an additional coat on my ring finger because I accidentally dinged it before it was dry.

Zoya Sweet with Hello Kitty Easter Water Decals

I added one coat of Poshe fast-dry top coat and then I added Hello Kitty Easter water slide decals from RLR Creations.

Zoya Sweet with Hello Kitty Easter Water Decals

They would have looked better over white polish but I had already done that for my Halloween Hello Kitty manicure, so I was curious to see how they looked over a color. Meh, not a fan.

Zoya Sweet with Hello Kitty Easter Water Decals

I finished it off with a coat of Poshe. I did the manicure Saturday night and took the photos on Sunday morning. Within that time, as you can see, there was significant shrinkage around the cuticle line. I find that Poshe has trouble with shrinkage on thick polish so I think the build-up of layers worked against me here.

Zoya Sweet with Hello Kitty Easter Water Decals

I also dinged up the ring finger when applying the decal. Ugh.

Better luck next year.
