Lemon Fizz + Sparkle

I've had China Glaze Lemon Fizz in the closet for a few weeks from Sally's sale. I grabbed it for $1.99 - awesomeness! When my previous mani went awry I pulled this one out. I wanted something bright for summer (can't believe we're into August already yikes). Lemon Fizz is a bright pastel yellow cream. Application was tricky and it took three coats for a smooth finish.

It needed a little kick and I remembered I had the tiny Sally's no name mauve hexagon glitters in a clear base.

I gave it two coats of glitter and used one coat of Seche Vite to smooth it all out. I'm happy with how it turned out and definitely think it's an August worthy mani.

  1. That's such a pretty yellow it stink it was tricky to apply I've heard yellows can be a bit fussy. That's a neat glitter on top!
