Recent NOTD: Goldilocks Rocks!

It was Mr. Karen's birthday not so long ago; for the occasion I made my nails one of his favorite colors: yellow leaning toward orange. (He also likes orange leaning toward yellow, yellow, and orange.) I started with three coats of the yellow creme, Cancun, from the Wet 'n' Wild Color Craze collection of earlier this summer, then topped it with two coats of OPI Goldilocks Rocks!, which is older, but still available from Amazon and other places online—I got mine from a local beauty supply. (I also used my normal base and top coat, of course).

These photos were all taken indoors. I didn't manage to get any in the sunshine; this was so bright my camera might have had trouble with it anyway.

  3. Wow, what an interesting yellow-orange. I think this colour might look awful on me though and my boyfriend would hate it. He prefers me to wear teal, blue, purple, turquoise and green.
