China Glaze Lemon Fizz

Lemon Fizz is one of the many colours I bought from China Glaze’s Up and Away collection that features pastels. This is a pale buttery banana colour that looks surprisingly pretty on my nails (despite it being yellow!). However, flouroscent lights bring out a touch of neon in Lemon Fizz, which I dislike. This was two coats. I think I finally figured out the trick to all these difficult pastels. First, apply a thin streaky first coat. It doesn’t matter how ugly. A thicker second coat will fix the flaws.

Paired with MAC Originality to mix things up a little.

Weifen’s nails, 2 coats, indoor light

The colour looks somewhat more flourescent under artifical light.

With Orly Green Apple, indoor light

I love this combination! Just a note that the yellow is not so bright; it’s the artificial light that is making it seem so.
