China Glaze Up & Away Collection: Lemon Fizz

China Glaze Lemon Fizz Nail Lacquer is a spring-y daffodil yellow. It’s pale and pastel, but there’s a little warmth there to keep it from being too cool or dull. There’s even a brightness–maybe the optimism of spring captured in color–to the yellow without making it a traffic-stopping yellow (which is more Happy Go Lucky’s style). I’m not a fan of yellow on my nails, but this is a yellow I could feel comfortable wearing.

Like some of the paler shades from this launch, application proved trickier than usual, but I found one thin coat (which may or may not have been streaky) followed by a thicker second coat worked well to given an even, creamy finish. I had the mentality of, “Fine, be streaky on the first coat… but I’m covering all that up later.” I would really suggest just playing around with different applications, coat amounts, thickness, etc. (you may even have to test out different base/top coat combinations), but the results are certainly worth a few botched attempts!
