Today the challenge was yellow nails and, I have to be honest, it's another color I haven't really warmed up to yet. I can enjoy certain yellows but, a whole mani of just yellow nails is too much for me even though I've been told it looks good with my skin tone.
For today's look, I did two coats of a Mattese Elite polish named Almost Famous and it was a streak fest. The thickness of the formula was awesome, I barely did any clean up, but the color was SO streaky! I had to cover it up with something and, since I've been craving holos, so 2 coats of Hits Hefesto went on top.
I did a couple of different and haphazard looks just to show you some of the ways you can use these. If you're not familiar with Sammy from The Nailasaurus, she's been doing looks like this with what she's now called 'glequins'. Her glequins appear to be larger so they work better for covering your entire nail, I would save these for smaller accents, like my 'Hurricane Nails'. The little tub is HUGE so these will last you forever. I don't know if they would be solvent-resistant to franken with though, so take that into consideration.
If you're interested, you can find these glitters HERE under 'Nail Art Glitters'. These are 1.0mm in size and they do offer VERY cheap shipping, though it may take a while to get to your hands due to the distance. Also, they offered a special coupon for my readers!
