Girly Bits Holochrome Powder No Gel Application Using Yellow Stopper

Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been playing with (and buying!) a LOT of nail powders.  Initially I tried Yellow Stopper (which I had on hand) before buying SuperChic Lacquer G-Force X to do the no gel application, but I was too impatient and it didn’t work for me. I decided to give it another go last night and Viola! It worked!

So we’re going to go over my results. I basically followed the exact same tutorial that I posted before using the SuperChic Lacquer G-Force X, but this time replace G-Force X with Yellow Stopper.

The main difference I noticed with the Yellow Stopper was that Yellow Stopper takes longer to dry. However, the results with the Yellow Stopper also seemed to be more chrome like. They were incredibly close though, so it’s up to you on which you’d rather use. More people seem to have Yellow Stopper on hand though.

Just a quick recap. Application wise – I took these steps:

1 coat of UNT base

1 coat of Darling Diva Polish You’re So Hot You Melt The Plastic In My Underwear

1 Coat of Yellow Stopper (then apply latex barrier, I waited a minute after the latex was dry for the next step)

Burnish holo powder into Yellow Stopper ( I used an eyeshadow applicator and Girly Bits Holochrome Powder)

1 Coat of UNT Base

1 Coat of top coat

SO basically – if you were waiting for SuperChic Lacquer G-Force X to come back in stock, but actually have Yellow Stopper on hand – you can just use that!

When I tested Yellow Stopper last night, I initially did it simple – 1 coat of Yellow Stopper, burnish powder into it once slightly tacky, UNT over it and then top coat. The result was fairly sheer – but I really liked it! I did a quick cell phone shot while in the drivethru line of Starbucks. I only did 1 nail for the test last night…

SO that’s another option if you don’t want a base color and still have a pretty effect.

Love this iridescent look! You make it look so easy. I’ve never tried it but this would make a nice look for my summer vacation. May have to ask my nail tech for a copycat look.

My nails would be looking great with that Yellow stopper. But since it takes longer to dry, so I may try a different method.

Oh wow! For once, I want to have nails as beautiful as those! I love the chrome effect and the color!

[…] I’m just not as comfortable with application as regular polish. But then… I recently saw this post on Cosmetic Sanctuary where Lisa shared her results applying powder over Yellow Stopper, which is a regular base coat […]
