31 Day Nail Art Challenge Days 3 & 4: Yellow & Green

Hello beauties!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday! It is Labor Day here in the States, so many of us are enjoying the holiday. I ended up being woken up by a phone call from my mom, so I'm extra sleepy right now. However, I did have a wonderful weekend, playing with some of my nail art stuff, and having my little cousin over so she could have fun using my nail stamps my giant stash. I think I have a nail polish buddy!

Yesterday was so lovely for me, because I finally pulled out the Fall candles, the weather was beautiful, the house was clean, and I had the whole day to relax, and watch scary movies. Halloween season is here!

Anyway, I got so relaxed, that I didn't even bother posting to the blog. Whoops! So today, I am posting my nails for both Day 3 and Day 4.

Day 3 was the yellow prompt. Now, I saw many nail artists say they really dislike yellow, but I don't. I love yellow. I don't get to wear this color much, but I just love this bright color, and I really liked this look. It was like a shot of sunshine on my nails! I have to say that I absolutely adore this yellow polish from Color Club. It went on nice and smooth with great coverage. Also, the little bottle is so cute! It's a University of Toledo Rockets football helmet, and that is my alma mater.

For this look, I used the following products:

Game Day Gold - Color Club for the yellow nails.
The Flash - Esmaltes da Kelly for the glitter accent.
Pointe Blanche - Orly for the white nail.
Black stamping polish - Born Pretty 
BP-L 006 plate - Born Pretty

Okay, next up is my green manicure! I love the color green sooo much, and this was the perfect opportunity for me to do my Slytherin nails. I love Harry Potter, and last year, I used my Potter plates to do my nails for the book prompt. This time, I just wanted to focus on my favorite house. As you can see, I did use a matte velvet for the base because I thought it was the perfect color to use, but I did end up putting a top coat over it, and whoa! Those Zoya matte polishes always pop with those glossy coats.

 For this look, I used the following products:

Veruschka - Zoya for the green base.
Snow Crystals - Finger Paints for the glittery accent.
Silver Canvas - OPI for stamping
Plate  - Bundle Monster for the stripes
Plate hehe 027 - Aiyoohehe for Slytherin crest.
Plate hehe 026 - Aiyoohehe for diamond pattern.

And that's it for today. I will check back in with the blue manicure next time.

Have a great day!
