This color is loud, to put it mildly. It was a gray day today, and supposed to be gray for a while, so I decided bright polish was the way to go.
My beef with yellows is that they’re usually really sheer. I like the sheer look, but sometimes it just looks like nail fungus. This is 1980s in-your-face electric yellow. I got this color by mixing white pigment with creme yellow polish (dollar store special, as usual). The white pigment lightened it up and made it totally opaque. This is one coat.
I made a puddle the size of an almond and added about 1/4 teaspoon of pigment and mixed- a lot. The polish was rather thick and dried a little rough, but I was pleased with the opaqueness and coverage.
A word about pigment: Be careful and do not use any pigment that is not intended for skin. Some artists pigments, such as cadmium or cobalt, are POISON. If it says not to touch it, don’t put it on your nails!!! Also, open the pigment carefully and add carefully. Do not make a little pigment dust cloud. You do not want to breathe in pigment dust. It only takes one time of spitting blue for a couple days to reinforce this.
Then I busted out the Konad, because this color just wasn’t noticeable enough already:
1980s Spiderman/Geometric kinda pattern:
I used the Konad Princess Special Polish in Black Gold for this. I don’t like it because the coverage is not good. Stick with the plain black- the design looks crisper.
Still, with this design, I half-expected some guy with long hair to pop out with a Gibson Flying V guitar and play a cheesy solo. 80s all the way!
To balance things out, I tried a flower design on the other hand:
This one is more 60s- acoustic guitar and warbling out of tune around a campfire. I like the flowers a lot, which is usually not my style, but I’m enjoying this.
I hope my hippie 60s nails and my 80s power ballad nails don’t get into a fight.
