Focus On Yellow: Finger Paints Psychedelic Sunshine

I've decided that this week's posts will be all yellow polishes. This gives me a chance to showcase some colors, and at the same time clear through some of my untrieds.
So, starting off with Finger Paints Psychedelic Sunshine, from the summer collection. This is the other polish I picked up from that collection, the first being Outta Sight Orange. I mentioned on twitter that this was really, really gloopy for me. I mean, super gloopy. So much so, that the first time I tried to apply it, it was like applying hair gel to my fingernails.
I added thinner. Probably, 15-20 drops of thinner. It's STILL goopy. Slightly less so, but the bottle is slam full, so I can't thin it any further. This is a jelly, so I don't want to dilute it any more with clear, because the opacity is already thin. A couple ladies mentioned that they had the same problem with this!
The good news is that the second time I applied it, it went on better. More manageable. You'll see that the polish on my pinkie is still pretty "gooped up" - it looks like bad acrylics. But on the rest of my nails, it self leveled. Weird.
Application issues aside, this is three coats of a goldenrod yellow jelly, with holographic glitter. It's not a top coat eater, because one coat of CND Air Dry had this smooth and shiny. It stayed that way, too! This is an AWESOME shade, so I'm going to see if I can just empty out a little of the bottle and add more thinner. I don't want to purge it, because the shade is seriously amazeballs.

Annnnd, a good macro! If you click on the first picture, you'll see the pretty sparklies - and that built-up pinkie.
