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!
