Gelicious Hybrid Gel Nail Colour swatch: Tiara Tantrum

Continuing with my Gelicious manicures we now have Tiara Tantrum. This one intrigued me from word go - I had never seen a sparkly yellow nail polish before. I had never worn yellow on my nails before so it was a bit of a shock at first. I wasn't sure whether I liked it. After a couple of days it really grew on me and I now find it to be a really happy summer colour. It is super glitter sparkly - which I absolutely love. I have tried my hardest to capture the glitter but it just doesn't seem to photograph well so none of these photos do just to how sparkly it actually is.
The only issue I had with this polish is that it is quite translucent. After the recommended two coats I could still see my nail line through. I always have dirty nails so prefer my nail polish to be opaque. I ended up applying 5 thin coats to make it opaque. The beauty of the UV curing meant that even with doing 5 coats the whole manicure still only took about 30 minutes to complete and it was completely dry.

Co-ordinating my baby to my nails!

If you missed my previous Gelicious mani's, here is Watermelon Gelato, Afterglow and Yacht Race. For swatches of the other colours, check out the swatch guide here.

The Gelicious lamp and polishes can be purchased here.

What do you think of Tiara Tantrum? Super cheerful or way too yellow? Do you also try to co-ordinate your baby's outfits to the colour polish you are wearing?!

All opinions are my own and I received no remuneration for this post. The UV lamp and ultra gloss top coat were provided for consideration; however, I purchased Tiara Tantrum with my own money.
