Honey Nut Cheerios

27 Jul

For once, when I asked my husband what he thought inspired this design, he got it right! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, inspiration can strike any time, anywhere.

I was getting my daughter breakfast this morning and there it was; a bowl of Cheerios.  Honey nut to be exact.  She prefers to eat hers dry, but for the purposes of art, mine are in milk.

I’m sure no one would look at this mani and say, “Hey!  That looks like a bowl of Cherrios!”  Good thing art is subjective.

I intentionally used a milky (no pun intended) white with less than desirable coverage for this mani.  NYX Girls White would generally require 3+ coats for full coverage, but I only used two hoping the less than perfect opacity would traslate as milk.  My Cheerios are Jordana Chiffon.  As is becoming routine, I slapped on a quick coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast, then finished things off with Jordana Quick Shine top coat.  I think this is a really cute, fun design.  It makes my happy and hungry.
