Nicole & Allular - I like the colours you went with!

Here's mine: the gold is Ulta3 Gold Rush Fever, the waterfall nails (inspired by The Nailasaurus) are WnW Collected Pollen and the lines were done with Ulta3 Gold Rush Fever, Honolulu, and Citrus. The pinky is 2 coats of Ulta3 Show Stopper over GRF

I did Face Stockholm in Highlighter, which looks like a yellow highlighter. I will try to post the pic later. It chipped in one day though. I didn't do a bad job putting it on either, so I was kind of bummed. The only difference from what they do at the salon is that I had Nail Envy underneath, but I used Orly Bonder and Seche Viche like they do. Oh well. The color was pretty intense for me, so I don't know how long I would have lasted with it anyway.

I can't find a yellow I like in a vegan brand in a store. There's a guy who sells nail polish for $1 from a table on the street and I can't remember the brand but it's vegan and I'm hoping he's there today and has a nice yellow.

I forgot to post my polish. I did China Glaze Solar Power. It's a lot less highlightery than this, almost goldish. I really love it and I think I've only used it once before? That's why I love this challenge.

ndpittman, I love that! I'm way into highlighter yellow lately for some reason.

I tried to paint my nails for this challenge using Orly's Melodious Utopia, but I hated it so much that I immediately took it off. It looks horrific on me. Maybe one day I'll find a yellow polish that doesn't - I think it'd have to be a mustard/goldenrod kind of yellow instead of something bright or pastel-y.

I wasn't gonna do the challenge this week because I'm gelicuring mine tomorrow for a hen do. But the polish I have on looks crepe because I did it in a rush and I just bought 2 of the new barry m limited editions, one of which happens to be bright yellow! So I might just put that on for one day for the challenge.

I just got home from a trip and I don't have any yellow and all my golds are glitters. Bah. I'm kind of tempted to go see if I can find a yellow, but I should probably just wait for next week's challenge.

First time I've painted my nails since I had hand surgery so it is a crappy job but oh well. Ruby Wing Birdie.

I JUST put that on. It looks awful on my hands.

What does everyone think about a stylistic challenge for next week? I was thinking 'polka dots' since it's easy to make a DIY dotting tool and you can even use a layer of chunky round glitter if you don't even want to do that.

I'd be up for polka dots, or something even more idiot-proof like skittles, maybe.

Yes, I would do skittles. I often do a different color on each hand anyway. I enjoy/like nail art on other people, but I wouldn't wear it myself. I'm boring! I like stuff super plain.

Here's mine for this week, I already did polka dots! haha. But only on one nail.

This is the Barry M limited edition summer 2013 polish in Yellow. The orange dots are Models Own HedKandi Hedonist and the pink ones are the other limited edition Barry M polish in Pink.

Excuse crappy paint job, I rushed it as I'm taking it off tonight anyway.

Thanks guys, you're right it is very cheery. I would leave it on for the hen weekend but I know it'll be chipped by tomorrow!

I love it too, gaps! I'm also cool with polka dots. It's the only nail art thing that I can manage, and I like the way they look on me.

so cute! i love polka dots on nails, but i've never tried it myself. i don't own black or white nail polish (dumb, i know), so i'm overwhelmed trying to decide what colors to use.

i tried to go buy a dotting tool today, but they were sold out at sally. meh.

Cute, appifanie! bluedawg, I just use a ballpoint pen dipped in polish to make my dots. Maybe you could try that?
