I loved Play-Doh as a kid. How about you? I even got into polymer clay sculpting as a teen. Yep, the same thing as those "fimo canes" are made of that you see floating around in the nail art world. Interesting how things come full circle. I personally don't like how those look on nails, so that's why I haven't pulled out my stuff and made any myself. This Play-Doh look is one that I wore as a full mani since it was more discreet.

*edit* Multiple questions have been asked about what yellow I used. Sorry guys, but I forgot to include that info when I was typing the post originally! Lol
The base is China Glaze Lemon Fizz. I find this one to be a lovely shade of pale yellow. Slightly streaky, takes 3 coats to even everything out, but not chalky at all. I then sponged Hard Candy Splendid over the top of Lemon Fizz to brighten it up a bit. Splendid is also what I used on the accent nail behind the label. Splendid by itself is about the same, slightly streaky, would take 3 coats to even out by itself. These are the only 2 yellows I own at the moment. I really like them, but I also understand that there are probably better yellows out there. I hope this helps!

  1. Cute manicure! I too have an affinity for anything play-doh related!!! But I agree with not liking fimo cane nail art. I don't like they way they lay on the nail surface.
    Great yellow colors (especially the lighter one). What brands are they??

  2. I just discovered your blog today and I have to say, I'm addicted to PolishArt Addiction :) Great work!!!!!

  3. Thanks frankenstyna! I appreciate that so very much. The light yellow is china glaze lemon fizz while the darker yellow is hardcandy splendid. Hope that helped, and thanks again!
