China Glaze Lemon Fizz NOTD

I'm currently in blogging and nail polish withdrawal!! Someone give me some valium STAT lol. I'm trying (not very) hard to do my readings and my assignment for uni which is this weekend but obviously it's not working and here I am procrastinating for a very quick post!

Thank you for the kind messages and stories about your own technology mishaps, it gave me encouragement and made me feel a lot less like a noob =) The boy managed to recover quite a bit of my stuff but alot of my documents and photos are corrupted unfortunately. But of course getting some things back are much better than none. I did get a bit upset at losing my stuff (I'm sensitive what can I say haha) so I decided to do a bright manicure to cheer me up over the weekend. If you follow me on Twitter you would have seen a quick pic of this mani already but of course will much less quality pics. I decided to do a cheerful yellow manicure using China Glaze Lemon Fizz from the Up & Away collection. I absolutely adore this collection! The colours are so bright and are simply gorgeous and so very "me".

Lemon Fizz

Lemon Fizz is a pale pastel yellow creme perfect for Spring or Summer. I don't really like yellows on me that much as my skintone is yellow, but being a pastel it looked decent and I really enjoyed wearing it. It's such a cute yellow and is definitely one to get if you're like me and shy away from the bright yellows. I had no issues with the application - I did a thin 1st coat followed by a thicker 2nd coat and it dried to a glossy finish. Thing to note, is that on the 1st coat the colour on the nail is quite similar to the bottle however it gets darker with subsequent coats. Above is 2 coats without topcoat.

Then I added some nail stickers that my workmate gave me to jazz it up. I can't have a "naked" mani - ie. just plain polish - anymore unless I'm in a HUGE rush nowadays. I just have to add SOME type of nail art or I'm not satisfied! =p

  4. That's such a cute mani. Hehehe I know what you mean. I cannot go for plain either anymore. At least it has to contain tons of glitter or I am bored.

    I am so sorry about your pc troubles but believe me it happens to everyone. Two days before my wedding last year one of my external HDs crashed and I had all my mp3s on it. I never managed to recover them.

  16. Wow, that is a great color. I think a good yellow color is so hard to find for us Chinese people, but this one looks good!

    Good luck in your studies!!!

  17. @Krissy: I think it has to be my favourite collection from China Glaze - if not from any brand!

    @Ansa & Blushingloves: Yellow polishes are definitely starting to grow on me now! But Lemon Fizz in particular is just so gorgeous.

    @Christina: I know right! We have indulged ourselves too much with nail art I think LOL. Ohhh man why is technology such a pain sometimes?? Hope you've gotten your music again now =)
