Stayed home last Sunday and decided to try out this easy DIY daisy manicure I read on Nouvelle Daily..

A short history on the polishes above...
Eastern Light was a limited edition last year but will be repromoted in the upcoming Summer 2014 makeup line
Flamme Rose is a very old, discontinued colour which I found whilst inspecting drawers at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport's dutyfree counter
Mimosa was a colour I dismissed in May 2011 (this was the year I started getting serious about Chanel polishes) and then regretted and recently bought new on eBay for double the price
Gold Fingers I bought over the phone without even swatching, it was created for the reopening of the Chanel boutique in Las Vegas in 2012
I have no complains about Chanel polishes, even the older formula is a dream to work with. There is only one in my collection which reviewers have mentioned is streaky and should be applied thinly, and that is Mimosa. I haven't tested a full manicure on it so I can't say but as dots it dried without issues.
I did as instructed, one coat of sheer polish; Flamme Rose, and dotted with Eastern Light..
I then dotted the middle with a yellow polish; Mimosa, and after it dried I topped it with Gold Fingers for some sparkle.
I really like this and would definitely try it again with different colours. I'm off to Google for more of these easy DIY nail designs!
