Hot Hot Hot Combo-Nerdlacquer Hyperspace Bypass

So today's item in the Purple Crumpet Fairy Summer Challenge series is Hot Hot Hot Combo- lending itself nicely to my latest and happiest swap to date- Nerdlacquer's Hyperspace Bypass! over China Glaze Sunshine Pop. Nerdlacquers are rarer than hen's teeth these days, as the artist has seemingly dropped off the face of the earth, and her polishes are selling for horrific markups on fleabay. The combination of complex glitters and colored bases are just about second to none and I love each and every one of the handful of nerds I have, so I was beside myself with joy when I found a swapper in Swapaholics (thanks again Missy R!)  that would take my (now discontinued) Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed in trade for this lovely yellow creature.
I layered one easy coat over two coats of ChG Sunshine Pop, a shimmering bright yellow not quite neon from the 2012 Electropop collection. (why do I always say Electrpoop in my head when I see that?) Sunshine Pop was still a bit streaky after two coats (unlike my fave ChG yellow- Solar Power) but I knew the yellow base in HB would cover any streaks. On its own HB would be a tad darker and more jelly like, but I am too chintzy with my nerds to use two coats. Still loving the results- wish you could see the random tiny gold holo glitters and sparse larger holo hexes sprinkled among black, yellow and gold glitters of various sizes. {{{love}}} Easy Gelous and Poshe over top.
