31 Day challenge – Day 3: Yellow Nails

Hi everyone!

Well, today is by far my least favourite challenge day. It’s not that I don’t like yellow, it’s just that I don’t like yellow on me. One day back in high school, I saw a bright yellow t-shirt with a picture of wonder woman on it. I went to try it on, and when I looked in the mirror, my skin looked… green. It was awful. So, yellow REALLY doesn’t suit my skin tone. I only have one yellow polish and that only in case I need a yellow for some nail art.

It was an okay idea but poorly excecuted – I used tape for the black blocks but somehow my lines came out skew and messy anyway. I’m not sure why since I’ve used tape and gotten beautiful crisp lines plenty of times before.

I could have redone it better, but honestly, I had no desire to put yellow on my nails again. So this is what you get – hopefully I will do a better job for the rest of the challenge!

The yellow is Essence Colour & Go – Wanna be your Sunshine and the black is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Black Out. The yellow was quite shimmery and bright, so yellow lovers would probably delight in it 🙂

Whew, well at least that is that one out of the way! Tomorrow it’s time for some green nails, a much more comfortable colour group for me 🙂
