OK, this swatch does show that I do get a tad lobster paw-ish. Yellow honestly isn't actually my color and it's not a color I typically like. However, it does lighten your mood, no lie. I was fascinated by this polish, I confess. I took 12 swatches of it over time.
Wanna see the M&M shot? Betcha do!
Here's a sunlight pic for you:
See? I told you I swatched the crap out of this. I couldn't stop looking at it.
Why isn't blogger letting me insert rows? Freak. [OK, on the preview read through, I had to reset my internet connection and the cut an paste and guess what? Rows. Sometimes I hate my internet.]
To do the mani, I tried the Seche Vite chocolate chip cookie accident again, just to see what happened. It was good. I might be on to something here. I will show you the chippage here in a bit because it did eventually chip, as all of them will, but more on that in a second.
1 coat Seche Base Coat
1 coat Nailtiques 2
2 coats Seche Rebuild
1 coat Seche Vite Top Coat
4 coats Daisy Dweller - I can't lie, it goes on sheer. To get opacity like I like, I did 4 coats. FOUR! Not a plus on this polish. However, it was 4 nice-to-apply coats. They went on beautifully, just not opaque.
1 coat Seche Vite
It did eventually wear and chip, but it took days. Of course, this was TEN coats of lacquer as well! That being said, none of the too thick polish problems you sometimes get. Peeling was never an issue, not even after it started to chip, which...that's kind of amazing.
Here is the chip mess:
MMM, yeah. You see that. However, it was confined to those two nails. In Daisy Dwellers defense, I had to have done roughly 90 sinks of dishes and cleaned the bathroom sink. This stuff saw a lot of water. Now...the interesting thing is, and I have to confess a sin here, once my polish starts to chip I can NOT leave it alone. I'm OCD about it, I want it off. I want it off now. It just looks cheap and lazy and defeats the whole purpose of nail maintenance. I hate it. I hate when other people let their nails go and I definitely won't let mine. So I will pick at it. It's bad, I know. Want a nice way to start removing the surface of your nails? Pick your polish off. This swatch is after I had been picking at it. This is all that would come off. I don't have a top view of it because...all I could get off is pretty much what you see here and the left hand barely chipped at all. Maybe a little mouse bite on one nail.
Anyone else out there up for the yellows? Did I change your mind good or bad?
I'd love to know!
