Monday Mani Challenge, week 2, "Yellow"

Welcome to our second week. YELLOW! A lot of girls didn't like this one. I didn't hate it but I hardly ever wear yellow. Just doesn't go with my skin tone and never looks good on me. Seems to be the consensus of most. But, we stuck with it and did it. I know most were "this is my only yellow" and myself, with a stash of almost 600 only had less than 10. But yes, we did it and, like last time, here it is:)


Kellee Foster wearing  A-England "and the moonbeams" topped with  "she walks in beauty"

Michelle Clinton Cult nails "You're a dandy lion", wow, gorgeous yellow!

Marissa Garcia  from a gorgeous yellow by Lime Crime. I know I can't play favourites, but, well, I LOVE this one! It is just gorgeous! The mani, the color, just a gorgeous swatch!!!!

Linda Brooks, from wearing China Glaze "Celtics Sunc" over Zoya "Purity" .
Lisa Waldhaus  "H&M "Being on the A-List". 
Kathy Smith with a Butter London for her yellow mani:) 
Karly Harens :)
Karin Johansson wearing "Depend" #356. Never heard of this brand but it sure is gorgeous!!!
Julie Smith wearing Barry M "Station road textured" 
Jeanie Pou wearing  the China Glaze "poptastic" collection for a cool, yellow inspired mani:)
The lovely Deneen Champion Smith did not want to submit this at first because she did not think it was yellow. As I said, to her I am not strict, submit what you used, this is just for fun afterall. But the weird thing, I think this is absolutely yellow and it's one of my fav swatches for this week! Which means I will have to go buy myself these pretty textures and this color will for sure be in my basket!:)
Brianna Allan , who unlike most, loves her yellow. This is OPI "Need sunglasses" and it is one of her favs. I agree, it's a pretty yellow. Accent finger is Gold "bling dynasty".  
LOVE IT!!!! Anja Andersson made a gorgeous yellow mani by adding  making it a dotticure! SO pretty!:):)
Alaina Feathers from . I now want to wear a yellow I have just so I can put on  one of my black/white glitters on top of it! I think it makes for a great combo!
here is Roni Devore's yellow mani! :)
Here is Ana from Alilacquer! WOW! I LOVE this! I wish I was this creative with my nails! I just lack imagination, I guess.. this is just gorgeous and perfect and YELLOW!!! Awesome job!

So, as I mentioned, I only had about 8 yellow's in my stash. I was really surprised that I had no Essie's or OPI's in that color. I had some OPI's that were on the yellow side but no yellows, which made me think that yellows, actually, are not released too often. I always get Essie collections and have for almost 2 years and as I said I have no yellows by them. Which means, they have not released any. None that I have seen. Please correct me if I am wrong. But at the same time, it is not a color that I gravitate to. So, what I choose for my mani is NOPI "Hit the lights" from the Selena Gomez collection. One of the main reasons I have this polish, I must admit, is because once I start on a collection, I don't stop until I have the whole set. This was an untried for me. And whereas it is not that bad, it's not my fav polish by far. I did add "confetti fun" over it when I was done, from this collection , and it made my mani wearable. I did not add any pictures though because I wanted to just be yellow! So, here are my swatches. and look, yes, I add more than one picture! You guys know me, I take so many pictures of one mani, just 3-4 pictures too choose is hard for me, LOL! I have told everyone, submit as many pictures as you like. So, trust me, this is hard for me, and I will explain it this time, but I add mine at the end and by force of habit, I add a few. And as you can see, by looking at all the pictures added, mine are by far the best of the bunch. It's just the way I am:) SO, here is my yellow mani:)


Indoors, under light

In shade

So, there we have it! As I said guys, the more the merrier! Doesn't matter if you don't have them ready by Monday. Life gets in the way, I myself am a day late with this post. As long as you submit before I do the following weeks post, I will add your pic. Anything, and everything is welcomed and would love people to join! Hope you guys enjoyed this weeks! What are your thoughts on yellow polishes? Like them??? Hate them?? Do they work for you?? Let me know and hope I get more of you to join on in the fun!

Chirality "Apollonia"


WOW!! Just WOW!! This polish I have to show for you guys tonight is just GORGEOUS!!!! Attention to all holo lovers, this is a goodie! I have a few holo polishes myself. I have actually done a post about NFU-OH  #65 here. It is a beauty as well, but that is my problem. Of all the holo's I have, I have 3 light blues , two silvers and a light pink. I have , for quite awhile, wanted darker colors, especially a dark blue and purple. Well, as I explained in my post on Polish swapping sisters Monday mani challenge, in that group, we get nail packages from a different girl each month. Well this month , I was spoiled. My partner went above and beyond for me and two of the polishes she sent me were Chirality holo polishes. and in DARK BLUE AND PURPLE!!! So, for you guys tonight, I have the gorgeous Chirality "Apollonia". Get ready guys because this polish is a goody! As always let me try my best at describing the polish for you guys.

Chirality "Apollonia" is a dark blue-purple holo. In the sun, it's a rainbow of holo sweetness and application of this beauty is a dream! As you know, I always, just out of habit, put at least two coats on, but with this, one coat would have been more than enough!

Chirality itself describes it as this: Purified in the waters of Lake Minnetonka, Apollonia is the pure definition of sexuality and beauty. She's a no-nonsense kind of girl who will scratch her way to the top to get what she desires. Her voice is strong and can be heard by everyone, even through the rain. With the Time on her side, she's able to obtain her dreams...and even sway the Kid she can't seem to get enough of.
Apollonia is a purple holographic polish. YOu can find the description and polishes here.

Let's get onto the good stuff, shall we. The pictures!!! Get ready for some holo goodness!!! All pics are two coats with Julep Freedom top coat. THhs top coat, in case you don't know, is supposed to make your mani's look like you just walked out of a nail salon and I must say, they do. You can cure it under a 60 watt light bulb (which I did) for 2 minutes or for 5 minutes under natural light. It gives a perfect, shiny and professional looking finish to it. 

                                                               In direct sunlight

Just look at it glow in the sun! Look at all that holo goodness!!~~

I love the "rainbow" of colors you see when move your fingers in the sun. It is a dark "blurple" holo but you can see a rainbow of pink and light purple, when you move your fingers in the sun:)

I was so happy with the way this mani turned out. The Julep Freedom top coat gave it that last , perfect touch. My cuticles were dry so, I added a bit more than needed cuticle cream. That is what you see on my fingers, especially on my index finger  UGH! it's so frustrating! I can never get "Perfect" pictures, there is always something in there that bothers me! And it's the type of things that are only really obvious in pictures. Anyhow, just a little something, I wanted to explain but does not take away from this gorgeous holo!

I know there are different types of holos "Linear" and "scattered" and I must be honest, I don't really know the difference. But this does, if you look closely, make lines , rather than scattered holo-ness, so if I am right, I would say this is a linear holo, but I could be totally wrong here. All I know is that it is a holo!

Not the best macro shots, I know......

I did actually take some pictures in the shade and indoors, but in all honesty, they did not do this polish ANY  justice. I mean, it still looks, good while you're wearing it, but for picture purposes, it needs to be in the sun, so you can see all that holo-y goodness. Anyhow, in case you weren't able to tell yet, I absolutely ADORE this polish! It is just gorgeous and the polish itself is a dream to work with. As I said, I was beyond spoiled and I could not  have asked for better polishes this month! The other Chirality I got is Cu2+ and I can't wait to try it on and take pics for you guys. It is just a gorgeous as this one but in dark blue! I am surprised at myself that I went for the purple first, but as I explained, I have blue holo's and didn't yet have a purple so I jumped on it. Hope you guys enjoyed my post. What do you guys think of it? Do you agree with me that it is just gorgeous! They are my first Chirality polishes and I know I will be buying some in the near future. If all are as much of a dream to apply as this one was, I see myself buying a lot more in the near future! DO you own any polishes from this brand? Holo or other?? Would love to hear how others compare. As always, let me know what you thinking and till next time, Keep on polishing!
