Yellow With Black Dots Nails

So… what happens when I try to be patriotic for my school?  This happens:

Colors used:

  • China Glaze: Solar Power
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: Black Out

So, yeah.  My school’s colors are black and gold.  So I came up with this design.  It’s simple, but sometimes the simplicity of something makes it beautiful.  Not saying that this design is beautiful, BUT I think if I added something to it, I would ruin in.  Half of a design is to know when to STOP.

As far as doing the design, it was super easy.  I first painted my nails “Solar Power” which is the yellow color.  I used three coats.  If you want to know more about this color, click my Review and check it out!  Then, using my homemade dotting tool (a bobby pin), I made a large dot in the center of each nail, using “Black Out”, then I made the dots go from large to small, putting them in a swerving direction.  It’s easiest to just look at the photo for the way I did the dots. 🙂  And then I added a large-ish, silver rhinestone on the fourth nail, on top of the large, center dot.  You know how much of love rhinestones… I obviously couldn’t do without them. 😀

And I lastly put on Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.  That’s why my nails are so shiny!  I just got hat top coat yesterday, and I’ll have a review on it maybe tomorrow, but in short, I love it!  Before Seche Vite I just used some cheap top coat, but it makes a difference to use a nice one.

OH!  And I know I don’t mention this every time (or anytime? I don’t know/remember), but I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS use a base coat and a top coat WHENEVER I paint my nails.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  🙂  Thought I’d get that out there.

I got “Solar Power” from Sally Beauty Supply and I got “Black Out” at Walgreens.

This was a short one today, guys.  I don’t know if you like the short, simple ones, but I’m going to apologize for its shortness anyway.  I just have that everlasting headache you get when you’re sleep-deprived.  But it’s the weekend, and I can catch up on some Zzzz’s.

China Glaze: Solar Power ☀

Here comes the sun, little darling.

Well.  Great news.  I have gotten my hands on China Glaze’s Solar Power.  What happened is that my sister’s birthday is coming up, and I wanted to get her some nail polish, so I went to Sally’s and got her two nail polishes, but I’m not going to say which colors because she might read this. 🙂  It’s a secret for now.

Anyway!  There’s a long list of colors that I am currently craving for, and the one that I am most in dire need of is Solar Power.  So when I was at Sally’s, I knew I could just get one bottle for myself.  So I obviously picked Solar Power.  And I am SO happy I did.  I love this color.  I simply love it.

Here’s my review on China Glaze’s Solar Power.  This is a photo of the bottom of the bottle and the bottle itself.

It’s a super bright, shimmer yellow.  Even though I usually like creme polishes better than shimmer polishes, I love Solar Power. It’s bright, it’s happy, it’s fun, and it’s so SUMMER.  It’s really perfect for the sunny season. There’s a REASON why it’s called SOLAR Power. 🙂  It goes on really smooth, and it dries fast.

I had tried it on my pointer finger, but I didn’t take a picture. 😦  Sorry.  BUT!  LUCKILY, I let my sister try the color!  She loves it, of course.  And I took a picture of HER nails, so here it is:

She used two coats, which looks totally fine, but I recommend using three, just to make sure that you can’t see  your nail through the polish.

I HIGHLY recommend this color to anyone!  I think it would look nice on any skin tone.  If you’re looking for a bright yellow nail polish that has a shimmer, your search is OVER.  Get Solar Power.  Just get it.  Please. You won’t regret it.
