Fishbowl Friday *024*

Happy, Happy Friday, Happy Friiiiiiiiday to Yooooouuuuu! This week's Fishbowl Friday is brought to you by the rather unassuming color YELLOW. I don't have too many yellows in my stash, so I knew the pickings would be slim. I forgot however, how unappealing those pickings tend to look against my olive skintone. But for the sake of the series, I'm still wearing this mani as I type...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats Zoya Daisy
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I'm honestly a little more than kind of annoyed that this doesn't go with my skintone. It's a seriously gorgeous color. Everything about it is right on... the creamy yellow color, the pretty turquoise shimmer, and the glowing quality the shimmer gives the overall mani. It's just not a color that works for me.

And that's okay!

Formula-wise, Daisy is a little splotchy. I used 4 coats and I've still got some visible patchiness in the photos. It's not as easy to see in real life, but that's after a coat of clear and a coat of Seche. I thought that would help even it out, but maybe what I really needed was another coat of Daisy? Or maybe I'm overthinking it?!? 

It's not often that I'm in a hurry to get a color off my nails, but this is definitely one of those times. I love yellow nail polish, but this just doesn't work with my skintone. It's a great shade, and I've seen it look lovely on other people, but sadly, I am not one of them! And again, that's completely okay
