Lemons are just great – and while I’m at it, so are limes! 😀 What drew me to Life Gave Me Lemons is that this nail polish shade is in-between a lemon yellow and a light lime green. Perfect for summer and for perking up your mood 🙂
I was worried that this shade would be very translucent, and while it’s somewhat sheer, it’s very easily build able, so you don’t need a white base coat. Two coats is nice, not to over the top birght so somewhat subtle, while three coats will give you a more neon bright shade (as pictured below on my nails)!
Now this nail polish does ‘wear out’ more easily on the tips of your nails, so it isn’t as long lasting as other OPI nail polishes – but in saying that, with a decent base and top coat you should get about 5-6 days wear with this nail polish. You could say that it’s a little more high maintenance but it delivers on the ka-pow factor, so I think it’s worth the ‘trouble’ 🙂 Isn’t it beautiful? I bought my nail polish from Ebay (from the outlet nail shop) for US $6.19 and $3.97 shipping (and that’s international shipping).
Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday, I am feeling a little more worn out as we get to the end of the week, so I think a citrus cocktail is in order over the weekend 🙂
Until next time beauties!
