31DC2013 Day 03: Yellow Nails

How is it only Day 3? I swear it's been at least a week already...

For today I created a "cartoon nails" manicure. My reasoning is that yellow polish is somehow already a little cartoon-y by itself. Only, it might not have been the best shade choice for this look, because the white doesn't contrast well on it. I'll try it again sometime with a more saturated shade like pink or red.

But I digress. These are still cool. They're kind of trippy to look at. Enjoy!



I started with three coats of the yellow. Then I outlined the nails in black polish with a striping brush. Next I painted on the white with a striping brush and dotting tool. I finished it all off with a matte top coat. Viola!




What I used:
Sephora by OPI Yellow My Name is Betsey
Sephora by OPI What's A Tire Jack?
Sephora by OPI White Hot
China Glaze Matte Magic

I hope you're having as much fun with this challenge as I am!

  3. Super rad! I totally thought the white was just your nails glinting in the light when I first looked at them.
