Clinique 70° and Sunny provided the bright, happy yellow for my pineapples and yellow polka dot base. Isn't it just perfect? The brush on Clinique polishes have a good firmness to it, which made it possible for me to paint on the basic oval shape for the pineapples without using a separate nail art brush.
Clinique Hula Skirt is a grassy, yellow-leaning green that is spot-on for my pineapple leaves (spikes? stem?), painted on with a very fine brush. I also used it for my little finger.
I used my new favourite white creme, OPI Alpine Snow, for the polka dots and as the background for my pineapples. Lastly, I painted on the criss-crossed lines on the pineapples with Nails Inc Basil Street (see this post for swatches). I think Basil Street was the right choice colour-wise, but it was a complete pain because the polish itself is a bit sheer. As my little blob of polish started to dry on my palette, the polish got goopier and darker, resulting in some variations in colour and line thickness between some pineapples.
How was your Labour Day weekend? What fruits/foods should I take on next?
