Jelly Gradient

My nails are still stained but I bought Develop 10 Nail Whitening Scrub today. Hopefully that will help. Since my nails now NEED to be covered, I decided to play around and try something I have never tried before. I used Deborah Lippmann "Yellow Brick Road" and OPI "Guy meets Gal-Veston".
It reminds me of those rainbow ice pops. Very summer. :)

HELP! Nail Drama :(

Last Thursday I put on Milani Fresh Teal with OPI Silver Shatter over it. I used Seche Vite, and for some reason it yellowed the polish, but it actually worked out better. It looked like a nice jade with a gold-ish silver-sh crackle pattern. I was in a hurry and carelessly did not use a base coat.

I kept it on all weekend and today I decided I needed a change. As I began to remove the polish I noticed it was leaving a blue-green stain behind. I then switched to 100% acetone polish remover, but still no luck.
It has been about 4 months since I had my UV gel fiasco (see this post) and the damage is almost fully grown out. But now my nails are stained blue. :( :( :(

Any suggestions? Do I treat then like yellowed nails? I never had my nails this stained before!

Deborah Lippmann "Yellow Brick Road"

I saw Lady Gaga wearing this color at the Grammys this year. I wasn't sure how I was gonna feel about it in real life. A yellow jelly? Hmmm.
Once I tried it on, I realized it is extremely sheer. It took 4 to 5 coats to the opacity that I wanted.
Overall I GUESS I like this color. I think it would look better on a darker skin tone. It is very unique and trendy. Not something I would yearn for in a few years or even next season. It reminds me of egg yolk. How appropriate for Gaga when she came out of the egg!

My yellow collection! (I think there are more, but these are my favs)

And speaking of yellow, my boyfriend brought these to me today because he knows how much I love yellow lately and to cheer me up because I'm sick (just a slight cold).  Earlier today he hinted by saying that I should paint my nails yellow lol :D
