30 Day Challenge Day Three - YELLOW

Day Three of the 30 Day Challenge of Untrieds is YELLOW. My least favorite color and the color that looks the worst on me. We are talking serious lobster hands. So I knew I wouldn't show it alone...but what to do? I'm not exactly blessed with a nail art gene.

So this is what I ended up doing...

Milani Yellow Whiz with a Spring Twist

First I tried it alone and as you can see by the photo, the application was very trying and it just didn't look right so I knew right then I'd have to cover it somehow.

So first I tried to do black and yellow checkerboard squares on the accent nail for a NYC Taxi look but that was such a fail I'm not even going to show you.  Then I tried some polka dots...

Not I added some color to the dots.

It was then I knew I'd need to do something on all the nails. I started with a "reverse gradient" of polka dots and then took a striping brush and made the "grass."

Sorry guys, it was the best I can do!  Thankfully the word Challenge is part of it because I certainly was challenged!
