Quick Yellow Feather & Flakies Nails

Every springtime I get the urge to wear yellow polish, bright and cheerful and whocaresifitdoesn'tsuitmyskintoneI'mwearingitanyway  xD

I bought Barry M's Lemon Ice Cream a couple of years ago and I love the shade, it's not too chalky and is easier to wear than a lot of yellows.  However it isn't opaque enough, it takes 5 coats on it's own so I thought I'd try wearing it over a failed yellow from my collection, China Glaze Lemon Fizz.

Lemon Fizz doesn't suit my skin as much and is streaky, but it's more opaque than the Barry M...so I tried 2 coats of Lemon Fizz with 1 coat of Barry M over the top and it was okay but still a little patchy :(

It looks like next time I'll just have to try either 2 coats of Lemon Fizz then 2 of LIC, or lump it and go with the 5 coats of Barry M...so to cover the slight patchiness I decided to add a little art.

First off, some BornPrettyStore feather water decals that go really nicely with the yellow, then a layer of flakie polish from the same store (I bought both myself, this weren't provided for review).

Flakies are a hard to find but much loved effect for me so I'm in love with this polish, it's called Sweet Color Number 1 and is a multi coloured flaky, not just a red/green that other brands have made.

I ended up loving this manicure, bright and fresh and perfect for the season...if only it hadn't rained the entire time I wore it :(

See ya next time
