31 Day Challenge, Day 3: Yellow

Good late-morning ladies! As you can see by the title, the topic for today's challenge is Yellow. Yuck! I am not a huge fan of yellow nail polish; it doesn't look the best against my skintone and is a pain to work with!

I decided to use a cult favorite yellow, China Glaze Lemon Fizz, for my mani. I was uninspired by yellow, so I didn't spice it up haha.

Below I did 2 coats of Lemon Fizz and a coat of Out the Door to smooth out the imperfections. We are also going to ignore the mark on my pinkie, today was not my day for yellow :P

Lemon Fizz is a classic baby yellow creme. It took 3 coats to be "opaque" I use quotations because even though it looks opaque, something still looks off in that department haha. This wasn't the most fun to apply; it was streaky and patchy, but I dealt! The color looked a lot better on me outdoors than inside; outdoors it ended up being more vibrant!

I hope you guys enjoyed the yellow nails! I'm sorry for my lack of yellow inspiration, better luck next time :P

  1. Seems like a lot of us had trouble with the yellows being fussy! Boo for the yellows. You're right about this being a cult fave though, I've seen it mentioned a lot, never picked it up myself.
