Pippa = my new obsession

Confession time: I am a total victim to trends.  Back in the day, whenever I saw LC on The Hills wearing black nail polish I had to wear it ALL the time, even though I previously thought it was only for goth girls.  Now I think black is one of the most chic colors out there.  This time around I'm starting to feel the same about yellow.  One of my favorite fashion bloggers love Maegan has been wearing yellow nails a lot lately, and it is soooooooo HOT!  This previously would not be a color I would choose.  I don't even think I owned a yellow polish before a few months ago!  But, now I want to wear it ALL the time.  First I dabbled with the adorable lemonade nails, and now I've got a cute daisy manicure to share with you lovelies!
Here's a Pippa swatch all on her own.  She's just so stinkin cute and sunny! 
Then I had this idea to stamp some daisies in black on the yellow.  The images for my thumb and the rest of my nails are from Konad M51.
This is really cute on its own, but decided to top it off by filling in the black outlines with a small nail art brush and some white polish.

I think the effect is super cute.  When I did it perfectly they look like stickers!  But, it was soooooo hard to get it perfectly in the lines. 

So, how do you feel about yellow?  Are there any colors that you totally avoid?  If so, I think it's time to break out of that box and give them a try!  You never know what you might like, or what might look good on you! 


  1. I'm really liking this tone of Yellow. I may have to think about getting it.. Hhhmmm. I love what you did with the little flowers.

  2. I was just thinking they look like stickers then you said it! If I tried it would be craptastic, but it looks awesome on you :)

  3. Cute! I actually have Pippa on my toes atm with OPI Black Shatter on top. My hub says it looks like Taxi Cabs on my feet LOL! I love it though!

  4. Melissa, what a coincidence! As soon as I put Pippa on I looked over at my new China Glaze Black Mesh thinking that black shatter would look AWESOME over Pippa, but I wanted to stamp last night instead. I'll have to try the pippa+shatter combo sometime soon.

  5. I am totally obsessed with yellow right now... I need to find one that is easier to apply, all my yellows are not that great in terms of its formula

  6. Hmmm. I don't usually wear yellow, but I think I might give this a try!

  7. Pippa is the best yellow ever!
