Working with blue and yellow can kind of be a hassle because they mix together so easily. Underneath all the yellow dots is a layer of white, so that the blue and yellow are separated, and the dots do not turn into green.
I used Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away!, Mellow Yellow, and White On.
Claires Mood color changing nail polishes were very popular about a year ago. Not liking the quality, or price of any polishes from Claires, I refrained from them. Recently I was at Claires and a particular polish caught my eye. I just couldn't resist buying Mood Hyper/Relaxed. I bought it, not even caring if the color changing effect really even worked, because I loved the color in the bottle. It completely surpassed my expectations. This is pretty picture heavy, sorry about the water everywhere.
It dries satin, But I like a glossy finish, so...
Seche Vite to the rescue!
Side by side-
This effect tends to work better on longer nails
I played around with changing the colors for so long that my fingers were pruney! The wear on this polish isn't particularly spectacular, but the color is soo amazing that it doesn't even matter. This polish varies between light and dark blues, that have a hint of that "mermaid" teal color.
I did this manicure for the upcoming Green Lantern movie. My nails are of all of the lantern corps symbols. Of course since the movies primary focus, if not only, is the Green Lantern Corps, I did two of those.
Yellow, Purple, Green, Indigo, and Orange Corps
Blue, Green, Red, Black, and White Corps
Only Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear colors were used. Mellow Yellow, Wild Life, GoingGreen, Pacific Blue, Sunkissed, White On, Blue! Me Away, Going Green, Cherry Red, Black Out.
My last manicure, based off of X-Men, has inspired me to being a superhero series for the summer! So to officially kick off this series, I bring you The Fantastic Four!

I am seeing the new movie X-Men: First Class tonight at midnight! So, of course I had to do my nails! I am very happy with how this turned out. I've been meaning to do an X-Men manicure for a while, but I was kinda nervous to do it, so the upcoming movie was the best way to get me motivated.
