Hi everyone....at least it's not Monday right? :) That's always the best thing about three day weekends. I'm actually writing this post the night before because I will be in the field all day for work. It's definitely my least favorite part of my job but at least it takes the entire day and I will be training my very first person today.
Today for the 31 day challenge, the theme was yellow. Yellow is my favorite color but I don't have too many yellow polishes because usually the formula is horrible. I grabbed a polish that I've only used once because of its goopy and thick formula, Covergirl Pina Colada. I love the pale pastel yellow on this polish but I've never been able to wear it because of how thick it is and how long it takes to dry. I then did a little gradient with OPI Oy-Another Polish Joke, a dense gold shimmer, and then added some dots to finish with Zoya Darcy. I finished off with topcoat to meld everything together.
I quite like the finished result because it's classy with the gold but a little funky with the dots. What do you think?
Oh, these are adorable! I always have such a problem with making yellow nails, but you made it perfectly! Love them :) Posting mine soon.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Paulina!Delete
I love yellows too but I don't have any yellows with a good formula. I love the gold one you put on top, I remember seeing that polish and really wanting it!ReplyDelete
Me neither! I wish they could figure out the formulas because I would love to wear yellow.Delete

This mani is so cute! I love how you combined different yellow shades into a great design... the result is awesome! :DReplyDelete
Thanks so much Yun!Delete
yes, it's really hard to find a yellow polish with good formula! the design is lovely, I love the gold gradient :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Mari, I really liked the gradient too :)Delete
That gold gradient is stunning! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Justina, I think it really went well with the yellow.Delete
So I totally was going to do a glitter gradient with the yellow, but changed my mind at the last minute. Now I know that it will look good when I do it in the future! Nicely done. :)ReplyDelete
Haha, glad I could be the guinea pig. This was actually my second "yellow" attempt :)Delete
You know what, you're so right, yellows generally have these goopy formulas which is why I only own two!ReplyDelete
Yellow is definitely my least owned color :(Delete
Are Zoya's expensive? I also have yellow nailpolishes that aren't really good.. and usually water or transparent. But wow, yellows make me happy... I gotta look for one now!ReplyDelete

Hi Samantha. Zoya's are in the $8 range. They usually have very good formulas which is why I like them so much. I agree, yellow makes me happy too! It's just so bright and sunny :)Delete
