Swatch and Review: Yogurt Series No. 4

It’s always difficult for me to choose nail polish when the weather is dreary, and this has been quite a dark weekend here.  I finally settled yesterday on an untried glitter polish that seemed like it would be a bright and cheerful contrast to the darkness outside.

Born Pretty Store Yogurt Series No. 4 has a blue-green jelly base with a few different colors and sizes of glitter.  There are large silver hexes, smaller copper and purple hexes, and some thin silver bars.  It’s an interesting combination and not one I’ve seen before.

This polish is not terribly difficult to apply, but the glitter does have a tendency to ‘bunch up’ on the nail a little bit, so some care does need to be taken when applying.  The base color is quite translucent, which allows great visibility for the glitter, but it also allows for a VNL.  It’s not terribly noticeable because of all the glitter, but it is definitely there.  The bar glitter does have a tendency to curl as well, which is a real bugaboo for me.  I only applied one coat of top coat, so perhaps this could be lessened were one to apply multiple coats (as you know, something I’m not really willing to do).  The polish dried quickly, but it does have a strong ‘nail polish’ scent, which will be off-putting for those with scent sensitivities.  I used a glitter base, three coats of polish, and my normal top coat for the photos.

This polish is definitely a bright contrast to this weekend’s weather.  It’s not quite my cup of tea, though, so I’ll probably be adding this one to my “find me a new home” pile.

I purchased this polish from Born Pretty Store for around $4.00.  Definitely search online for a coupon code if you intend to purchase from there, because there are lots of 10 percent off your purchase coupons for this store floating around the interwebs.

    • Thanks, Imo! I do love my glitters, but sometimes a base color doesn’t work quite as well with glitter as one hopes. Thanks for looking! xoxo leanna

  1. Somehow this really reminds me of beautiful mosaics you see in “far away exotic countries”. Wonderful colors! I love glitter and I would try this even though I normally stay away from blues and greens on my nails… (save for the occasional spring/summer mint green)

    • What a great description, Jenni! This is a pretty color combination, and you’re right, there is something almost exotic about it. It’s probably worth trying this one over a similar color, since the base color doesn’t build quite well enough for my taste. It’s funny that you mentioned that you stay away from blues and greens, because those are the two colors that I use the most! I know they probably don’t fly in some work environments, though. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one!

      • I’m lucky to work in a place where I can wear what I want and use as crazy of makeup as I want (not that I normally look like a clown), but for some reason blues and greens are difficult for me to use on my own nails, unless they’re really dark, almost black hues – which then only work for winter. I think I was influenced by your nails however, since I picked up a vibrant turquoise nail polish today and combined it with glitter! ( Oh my gods these look gorgeous – but crazy at the same time! http://instagram.com/p/lSPHP0lsTs/ )

        I always keep my nails super short, because they tend to curl annoyingly if I grow them 😦
