31 Day Challenge - Day 3: Yellow Nails

Hi, girls! I'm continuing with 31 day challenge and the task of day 3 are yellow nails. For yellow nails I decided to use Catrice Bye, Bye Birdy!, a polish, that's discountinoued for some time now and I actually never wore it before.


Bye, Bye Birdy! is a light yellow shade with slight silver shimmer, that isn't visible on nails. It applys very streaky, like all yellow polishes do. I had to use 3 coats to make it look even.


Yellow reminds me on lemons, so I decided to do a lemon slices nail art. Lemon slices are very easy to do and this nail art actually looks very pretty on nails. Because I used 2 yellow shades and a white, it looked from far away, like I did a gradient and not lemon slices, so it seemed even prettier. I used Claire's yellow pastel polish (I have no idea, how it's called) and a white Beauty UK polish from Urban Girls set.


I also did a quick tutorial for lemon nails. As you can see, it's nothing hard to do: first apply your base color (it doesn't have to be yellow), then use a yellow polish and do a semicircle on the top of your nail. When yellow polish drys a bit, use a white polish and a thin brush to make a line, following the semicircle shape. After that sponge some white on the top of your nail (only in the middle) and then do white lines, which will give a look of lemon slices. Use a top coat and you're done. You can also use other colors, like orange or green to make an orange or a lime.


Are you a fan of yellow nails or yellow is not for you? What do you think about my choise of yellow polish and about my nail art? Thank you for reading!

    1. Hvala. :)
      Jaz pa sploh nisem na soncu tu pomislila, silly me, pa tako sem ga pogrešala. :P Mogoče so limone kot prva misel posledica tega, da naši vsak večer pijejo čaj z limonami. :D

      Se strinjam, rumeni laki so grozni za nanašati, ampak vsaj lepo izgledajo na nohtih. :)

  9. Zelo lušten nail art :) Kateri je ta svetlejši rumen lak, ki si ga uporabila? Malo me spominja na enega TE od Essence, ki ga imam, pa mi je super barva samo rabi štiri sloje, da je prekriven, zato iščem boljšega :)

      Je od Claire's, ampak nima napisanega imena, tako da ti ne morem povedati točno. Zdaj ga že en čas nisem nanašala samostojno, ampak se mi zdi, da je tudi rabim 3 sloje. Rumeni laki so pač taki, da se težje nanašajo in potrebujejo več slojev za lep izgled.
