OMD2 - 31DC - Bright

Today's prompt for OMD2 is "Bright" I did this sunrise looking mani inspired by Missy aka Gnarly Gnails because what's brighter than the sun? :)

What I used:
Color Club - Yodel Yellow*
Color Club - Tech Red*
Color Club - Flickr Pink*
Hole punch reinforcement stickers
Striping Tape
Triangle makeup sponge
*I won these polishes in a giveaway... I don't think they are available for purchase anywhere... sorry!

Yodel Yellow was annoying to work with. I used 4 coats and still ended up going in again to try to fill in the sun because it was a bit bald in spots. It is thick but somehow still has a sheer jelly look to it. I still had VNL after 4 coats :( I think this polish definitely needs a white base for next time. It dries to a semi matte rubbery finish.

Overall I'm pretty happy with the way this came out. I think I missed a bit of space when I was doing the gradient on my ring finger so the circle isn't perfectly crisp but it's not too noticeable and I guess it kind of goes with the look of the sun rays? I also had a bit of a problem with the striping tape staying down at the edges but I was able to erase the gradient that had seeped in with my clean up brush and acetone :) I also accidentally covered too much of the yellow on the pinky and the yellow wasn't pigmented enough to fix it... but oh well... I think maybe I'm just OCD lol
