Dollish Polish Peter Cottontail

Happy Easter my lovelies!! Hope you have had lots of lovely choccies today and been up to something nice to celebrate.

Well as usual I'm behind on everything, I only just made my Easter baskets and I didn't get a chance to do the bunnies and eggs mani I had planned, but I do have an Easter mani to show you, and you know what? We even had something that resembles sunshine this morning so even though I lost an hours sleep because the clocks went forward, I can almost believe we may get a spring....

Anyway, on to the mani. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase Dollish Polish Peter Cottontail which was a Limited Edition produced by Dolly recently. I believe it was supposed to be limited to 100 bottles but the site oversold so there are actually 137 knocking about, mine is 84/100.

Peter Cottontail is described as a soft coral jelly filled with multi hued iridescent glitters in multiple shapes and sizes which gives the polish a true delicate glow. It looks pretty sheer to me so I decided to layer it. I actually wanted to do an ombre mani with it but I chose shades of peach and orange, a colour I actually don't have a ton of so I think I ended up with more of a skittle mani. Oh well, it was still pretty.

For this mani I used 2 coats of each base colour and 2 coats of Peter Cottontail over the top. Left to right: Barry M Peach Melba (LOVE!), Nails Inc Hobart Place, Nails Inc Mornington Crescent and an unnamed Color Club bright orange, which I believe may be Koo Koo Cachco. One layer of HK Girl smoothed this out and I'm just about to take it off after 3 days!

I think next time I'd like to try Peter Cottontail on his own to see if I can get that beautiful softness in the bottle to transfer to the nail.

So, which colour do you like best??



  1. Too pretty, I need to find a bottle of this somewhere!

  2. I had a really hard time finding something to layer this over that wasn't too harsh looking or too orange. Yours looks beautiful over Peach Melba!

Anyway, it's great to get comments and I'll verify them as soon as they get to me.
