31DC2012: Day 03, Yellow Nails

Yellow may not be a popular nail polish color, but I sure like it!

Today's nail art is a little simpler, but I really dig the way it turned out.


I started with a base of 3 coats of Illamasqua Load. It's a pretty buttery colored creme -- very light yellow -- and it does need all 3 coats to be completely even.

Then I taped off a stripe and painted on the second color, Finger Paints Lemon Sour. It's a pale yellow, but still a bit darker than Load.

Then, I didn't want to wait for Lemon Sour to dry, so I abandoned the taping and just freehanded on the final stripe using China Glaze Happy Go Lucky.


This looks is super subtle, but I'm into it!


I actually wasn't sure at first if I wanted to use this one for my "yellow day" so I did a second yellow mani. This was the first set of yellow nails I did, and I decided I ultimately liked them more. I won't be posting the alternate one today, but will instead put it in the vault and save it for a rainy day.

See ya tomorrow for some nail art that I'm reeeeeally excited about!

  2. I really like this! If you'd told me about this I'd have probably thought "meh" but actually seeing it, it's pretty! Makes me want to stamp sunshines on it, actually. They remind me of Jelly Belly beans in the buttery popcorn flavour. Om nom nom.
