China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

6/29/2015



This very well may be my favorite summer nail polish of all! China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini (14ml | $7.50) is the most intense neon I own and I'm completely in love with this highlighter yellow! It's part of the Poolside Collection from 2010. and I've noticed I have almost all shades from that collection - I'm only lacking the shade Sun Worshipper which is a fetish of mine and my birthday will drop in a few days, y'know (hint, hint). Neons usually have a sheer formula and this is no exception - I would recommend applying a white nail polish as a base (I've used China Glaze White On White) and then start applying thin coats of Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, one by one. I usually need three coats for full opacity but if you're a perfectionist, I'd go for the fourth coat as it really makes a difference. Those who don't have the patience or aren't a fan of neon brights could skip it - for me, it's totally worth the effort! The one thing this shade has in its advantage is its matte finish which dries incredibly fast. One coat of the CG White On White which I used for base base takes longer to dry than one coat of YPDB and I think all four coats of the neon lovely require 5-8 minutes until they're completely done. You could add shine with a glossy top coat but I prefer the matte finish. It's ultra bright and I adore this kind of cool greenish-edge of highlighter yellow. It would look best on darker skin tones so I cannot wait to get a tan and rock it senseless. It's such a Pinterest-worthy polish, don't you think?

Dosla sam do zakljucka da je ovaj lak meni najdraza ljetna boja od svih! China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini (14ml | EDIT: cijena po laku iznosi 7,50KM preko Facebook stranice Lilocosmetis za citateljice iz BiH) je najintenzivniji neonac kojeg imam u licnoj kolekciji i godinu, za godinom me odusevljava ova marker neonsko zuta boja. Ovaj lak je dio Poolside kolekcije iz 2010. godine koja mi se jako dopada i posjedujem sve nijanse iz te kolekcije osim laka Sun Worshipper na koju imam svojevrstan fetis. Za par dana mi je rodjendan pa eto, pustila sam ciljanim osobama informaciju 'u uho' (podmuklo od mene!). Neonski lakovi za nokte obicno imaju problematicnu formulaciju a to je slucaj i ovdje - preporucila bih nanosenje jednog sloja bijelog laka za nokte u svojstvu baze (ja sam koristila China Glaze White On White) a potom lagano nanosenje tankih slojeva Yellow Polka Dot Bikini laka. Meni je povrh bijele baze obicno potrebno tri sloja YPDB-a za odlicne rezultate. Ipak, ako ste perfekcionista preporucila bih i cetvrti sloj koji sve nekako 'poveze' na poseban nacin. Osobe koje nemaju strpljenja ili jednostavno nisu fanovi neonaca pa im nedostaje motivacije za ovaj trud - slobodno preskocite ovaj lak. Meni je ipak ovaj ljepotan svaki put bio vrijedan truda! Ono sto mu ide u prilog jeste mat finish zbog kojeg susenje traje nevjerovatno brzo. Susenje jednog sloja CG White On White laka koji koristim njemu za bazu traje duze od vremena susenja jednog sloja YPDB i mislim da sva cetiri sloja YPDB laka budu u potpunosti suha za 5-8 minuta. Ukoliko zelite, mogli bi preko njega nanijeti nadlak za glossy efekat ali meni se bas svidja ova mat zavrsnica. Ova boja je intenzivna, ultra upadna i mislim da je fantasticna! Zuta sa blago zelencastim podtonom ce najbolje izgledati na tamnoj kozi - jos je jedan razlog zbog cega se radujem broncanom tenu uz koji ce se odlicno slagati. Lakovi poput ovog su stvoreni da mame uzdahe sirom Pinteresta, zar ne mislite?
