Spring-time polka dot fun with Moyra's* shade 45, a beautiful pastel green

You may remember my having posted about some gorgeous Moyra* polishes that I was sent, recently, to try out. I only had some basic swatches to show you in the previous post, HERE, so I thought I'd start doing some more pretty looks with them to share with you too. I've only started simple, with some polka dots, but I do love me some polka dots; especially with a pastel colour for the spring.


So this is shade 45, which is what I used as the base shade. It's a nice pastel green, mint green sort of shade which I know lots of us love in the spring time. It applies really nicely and is opaque in two coats which is often tricky to achieve with pastels.

I've done two different sized polka dots, to show you, both with a pale creamy/white shade from MUA called 'All Nude'.

Please forgive the dry skin around the edges of my nail, I really need to get my hands in better condition but I've been focusing on getting my nails all to a nice length (which I've achieved for the first time in ages!) - The rough edge is entirely to do with my skin, not the polish.

But anyway, these are the bigger polka dots - I think the bigger size is my favourite and I really like this look. I used simple dotting tools (for a couple of pound from eBay) and it reminded me how easy polka dots are. I've not done them for a while but I definitely want to do them more often, again, now that I've remembered how easy it is!

As much as I prefer the bigger dots I do like these smaller ones too! You can see from both of these photos that the dots sit nicely on the base polish, which dried hard really quickly. Aren't they pretty!

Only a simple start to playing with them but I do miss doing polka dots and this shade lends itself to this sort of look!

I'm currently in the process of scouring the Moyra UK catalogue on their Facebook page as I am going to buy some more of their wonderful shades - Such great, exciting shades, in amazing quality. What more could you ask for?!

*I was sent the Moyra polish for the purpose of review but that doesn't alter my opinion as that's based entirely on my own experiences*
