Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Nails

Marc Jacobs Daisy and its various iterations have been around since 2007, yet can you believe I've never bothered to sample one until Daisy Dream? Maybe it was the pretty white-on-cornflower-blue look, but I ended up taking a sample home and getting a little nail art inspiration too.

I used some of my favourite nail polish staples for art: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Blue-Away, OPI Alpine Snow, and Orly Luxe. The signature "daisy" is super easy to do: just take a large-ended dotting tool (or use the round end of a bobby pin) and make 5 dots in a small circle, slightly overlapping each other. Let that dry fully and complete with a dot in the center matching your base colour or in gold. Repeat as many times as you like :> If you find there's not enough definition between your "petals", go back in between the dots with a very fine brush dipped in the base colour.

Floral fruity is one of my favourite types of fragrance, so I do like Daisy Dream. It's a little sweet from raspberry and lychee notes, but clean and not overly young. I'll finish my sample spritzer but it's not a very unique scent--there is definitely a "been there, smelled that" vibe, so I'm skipping on buying a bottle.

What fragrances have you tried lately? I spritzed on Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Limon Verde and loved the bright burst of citrus.
