Following the sad news about the death of Lena Horne and an additional sense of Monday malaise, I decided to shake the blues off with something bold, bright, and indisputably funky.
Then moments after this photo was taken, I managed to bend my fingernail all the way back and break the nail in the middle of my nail bed. YES that hurt as much as you think it would have. And that was just the beginning of a Murphy’s Law kind of day. So forgive me for posting my Monday mani on Tuesday.
China Glaze’s Sun Worshiper is an undeniable neon orange. In the past I may have shyed away from such a color, but I was inspired by my amiga Claire of The Fashion Bomb, who recently painted her nails in this color. Alas, I do not have that color, or a yellow that’s similarly deep and sunny. Instead I have uber bright neons, so I had to compromise my vision.
Sun Worshiper is part of China Glaze’s Poolside collection, and it is GUARANTEED to get you noticed.
All Lacquered Up is right — it is streaky, and you can still see your nail line after several coats. But if you love a nail color that’s visible from a block away, this is the way to go!
I also must say, different nail colors look SO different depending on skin tone. On brown skin, this color POPS. I’d love to see it on someone with even darker skin.
The color has some issues — it doesn’t last long unless you use a great top coat, and it isn’t completely opaque unless you use a coat of white creamy polish first. But if you’re looking for a shade that will make you smile every time you look at your fingertips, this could be the one. It’s $5.99 at Sally Beauty Supply.
It’s kitty approved!
What do you think bellas — too crazy? Or do you love it, and say the brighter the better? I think I’ll do something more demure next week. For now, this is FUN!
