I think it is time to do another "favorites" post! I was thinking this weekend about my second favorite color - yellow! Just like white, a good yellow lacquer is hard to find. Most are streaky and require three coats for decent coverage. And no one likes applying three coats! I have managed to get my hands on a few perfect yellows. If you are a yellow fan like me, you will love this post!
butter LONDON Pimms
When I applied Pimms for the first time I was beyond excited! I was worried it would be chalky like Cheeky Chops, even though I love CC. It wasn't! It is a beautiful pure yellow creme that applies flawlessly in two coats. I have also used Pimms for stamping and love the results!
OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana
A new favorite yellow! There is so much to love about the OPI Brazil Collection, especially this yellow! I Just Can't Cope-acabana is a beautiful bright, yellow that jumps off your nails! I have used this yellow in many of my recent nail art posts and can see it being featured a lot in upcoming Summer manicures. It is two coats of perfection!
Catrice Birdy Reloaded
This yellow was a complete surprise. I am a huge fan of Catrice lacquers and when I applied Birdy it was a happy day! Not only is it a perfect yellow, it has a gorgeous shimmer.
Lime Crime Crema de Limon
If you are looking to take the bright yellow down a notch, I also have a couple beautiful soft yellows. I wouldn't call Crema de Limon a pastel but it is very close. This was the first yellow that I applied that was flawless. Between the color and the application you can't go wrong with this lacquer!
How about a truly soft, pastel yellow??? Shark is exactly that! It is so soft and beautiful! It is a pale yellow that is perfect for any Spring manicure. I can't believe that I have only used this yellow once! I see inspiration for an upcoming manicure!
Elevation Polish Streetside, NYC
I could not end this post without including Streetside, NYC. I love an ugly polish and to me, Streetside, NYC is a stunning, ugly yellow! It is kind of like a cross between a dirty yellow and a mustard yellow. Plus, do you see the shimmer? I have also stamped with this lacquer and loved the results.
I hope you have enjoyed some of my favorite yellows! Do you have a favorite? Do you know of a perfect yellow that I have not mentioned? Let me know!
