Summer Challenge Day 3: Yellow

Summer Challenge Day 3: Yellow


Yellow nails. Ugh. Probably the biggest challenge of them all, and the one that I was looking forward to the least. Thank god it’s so early on in the challenge so we can get it over and done with.  

I used OPI “Fiercely Fiona” which I received in a swap, and is from the Shrek collection of spring 2010. It’s a polish that doesn’t quite know if it wants to be yellow or green, in my opinion, and really: It’s not my colour at all. But never mind, let’s see how it goes.

I applied three coats of Fiercely Fiona, and I honestly didn't like it much :D It was streaky, didn't cover very well and it took forever to dry.

Here’s how that looked without top coat:


And from another angle:


After that I decided to apply some glitter, because there’s nothing like glitter to save a mani! I chose a yellow glitter with stars from Trend Accessories. It’s a cheap polish and it smells really weird, but it’s perfect for Fiona.

Here’s one thick coat over the yellow:


I didn’t go fishing for the stars, and that means I ended up with none. But that’s alright – this mani didn’t last long anyway! :)

I didn’t apply topcoat, because this glitter is really shiny in itself, and it doesn’t dry up gritty at all. A good buy, if you ask me!


You should check out these other Danish girls’ blogs to see what they came up with for yellow nails: 


Stay tuned the day after tomorrow - same bat time, same bat channel - for green nails!

    1. I see a lot of difficult challenges ahead, but seriously, yellow!? The only thing that could have made it worse is if they had picked brown. I don't even own a brown polish :D

    3. OMG, I don't think I would have done this challenge at all, if we were to use brown! :-D

    4. I would have had to mix a brown myself, because I surely wouldn't have bought one just for this challenge :D
