The Neon Sailor

Me and yellow...we go way back. I really can't ever get enough of yellow. There are so many beautiful living things in the natural world that are yellow, whether that be a bright or a muted yellow. So that's why you'll always see at least one yellow-cure per month.


Tonight's used The "It" Color (OPI) for the yellow. I've shown that one before, but this time, I've added Neon Lights (Elemental Styles) on top of that for an extra kick. Neon Lights is another tiny glitter mix. Of every type of glitter I've come across, it's the simple, clear-base, itty-bitty glitter mixes I find myself drawn to and really seeking out the most. Windestine was the first Etsy shop that made me realize that, and now I've got Neon Lights to accompany Carbon Copy and Asbestos. I'm beyond pleased. I snapped a picture using Instagram earlier to show off just how cool the combination was before any stamping:


The stamp was done with Hey Sailor! (China Glaze) and m57, the well-loved Konad plate that got me started sometime two years ago. Two years? Wow time flies when you're bloggin' your little heart out.

  3. This is beautiful! I have to ask because I am having the hardest times with yellow polishes but do you have any favorites that you absolutely love? I recently did a mani with Color Clubs Almost Famous and it took me 4 coats to reach opacity and the formula as so bad it chipped the same day. I really want to find a few "great yellow polishes" that are non-neon because I agree it's a gorgeous color just I've run across of lot of streaky and bad ones.

    1. You didn't like Almost Famous? I loved it! Here's a few of my favorites:
      The "It" Color - OPI
      Happy Go Lucky - China Glaze
      Lemon Fizz - China Glaze
      Unicorn - Sinful Colors
      Lightening - Sally Hansen Insta-Dri

      Yellow's are tough, so even though they may require 4 coats, they're designed that way, so they don't get too thick. Just be patient between coats, and the results will be beautiful and smooth. The yellow here was 3 coats, 4 on some nails.

  4. Yellow is not really "my" colour, I think it doesn't suit my skin colour.. But, seeing it on you makes me wish to try it, maybe I would not wear it alone, but with these wonderful flowers I'm sure I would wear it with pleasure! :-)

  8. I LOOOOOVE Neon Lights. LOVE IT. I don't own a single indie polish. It's just not my kinda thing. This is the first one I have seen that has made me say "omg, I need that". Are there any other glitters similar to this one, only different colors?

    1. I mentioned Asbestos and Carbon Copy from windestine. Asbestos is a white tiny glitter, and Carbon Copy is a black tiny glitter. Also, Water Wings from GlitterFest. That one's got lime green, blue, and pink tiny glitters.
