China Glaze Sun Worshiper

One of my favorite Beauty Bloggers, Amarixe, did an awesome ombre nail tutorial on her YouTube page last week. It peaked my interest, because I had 2 out of the 3 colors (Sun Worshiper and Flip Flop Fantasy) she used and another that I liked a little better than the hot pink she used (I used China Glaze Pool Party). I was really excited because she used a color that I've had for a while and have never really known what to do with it.

China Glaze Sun Worshiper. It's a gorgeous yellowy, neon orange that is stunning in the bottle but a little sheer on the nail. I'm not a huge orange fan so I've loved it but never used it. She used it over a layer of white and then faded to a coral color into a neon pink. SO GORGEOUS.

I tried it first like Amarixe did with really great results. It's an awesome tutorial for any color of ombre nail. I liked it so well that I actually did it for 2 manicures in a row and then decided to use Sun Worshiper on it's own.

I don't like it as well as I did on the ombre nails, mainly because it's very sheer on it's own. It does need a lighter base underneath to really make it pop. I had to do 5 thin coats to get it to show like this which means it will probably peel within a day or two. But it is a gorgous color and great against a tan. I will keep trying this color in different ways to get it to work the best, so far I like it in small increments such as an accent nail or in an ombre look.
