31 Day Challenge Day 3: Yellow = Warhol

Oh hi there. A slightly intoxicated post for you this evening - though I did my nails before I got drunk.

For yellow, I thought of sunshine, but that seemed too easy. Sunflowers, but Van Gogh did them best. But bananas? I like those! Mostly when they're still kind of green, but that isn't how Warhol envisioned them.

The Andy Warhol banana! And nail-sized? Check it out:
My left hand.
My first try! Using American Apparel Sunshine State, with OPI Alpine Snow as a base; I used the white on all nails, and the yellow still took 3+ coats to be opaque. Now I know why I never use this colour! But I ended up very happy with how it looks; worth it? In this case. I used black acrylic paint for the detail.

And then my right hand! Same approach, but practice made the banana better:

However, the sun had gone down by the time I managed to photograph it, so the colours are not as true. But I really like it!

For comparison:

And that is yellow, complete.


  1. I'm very impressed with your interpretations of the colors . I love them! Everything you do has such whimsy.and femininity. Goes very well with the sense of style this year- lots of dresses, feminine bags, girls wanting to be girlie.
