Allo!

Today is day 3 of the 31 Day Challenge, and we’re doing Yellow Nails! I started off with two coats of China Glaze Trendsetter, a murky mustard yellow polish from their Metro collection that was released a month or so ago. I suppose it’s what you’d call a “fugly” color but I love it! This glass-fleck filled polish is one of my all time favorites. I decided that today’s manicure needed MOAR YELLOW, so I then free-handed Banana Bama by Maybelline over the corner of each nail. I think it turned out pretty badass. :-D Enough gabbing, let’s get to the pictures! :-)

Make sure to stop by Cris and Sam’s blogs for their day 3 manis. ^_^

For my first attempt at free-handing a vertical stripe I think I pulled it off quite nicely! :-D These two colors really compliment each other, the hidden shimmer and brightness of Banana Bama pops when paired with the murky Trendsetter.

Banana Bama is a little on the sheer side, so I ended up doing two coats. I then topped everything off with a good coat of Seche Vite. ^_^

Here’s a few photos of Trendsetter by itself. It’s such a gorgeous green leaning yellow, and the glass-fleck is flippin’ amazing. Gah, I just love glass flecked polishes so much! ^_^

What would a Nails and Noms post be without a shimmering macro shot? ;-) Also, I think this is the best my cuticles have ever looked. I recently started using Lemony Flutter and sweet jebus that stuff is amazing! :-D


That’s it for today! Are you all down with the “fugly” colors? If so, what are some of your favorites? I’m a big fan of Trendsetter and Catwalk Queen by Finger Paints. ^_^
