5 Fun Yellow Nail Polishes

Inspired by Chanel’s Mimosa, here’s a round-up including yesterday’s new-for-summer shade, but also four others to consider!  From sunny to mustard to highlighter…

    Deborah Lippmann’s Yellow Brick Road is also a Fab yellow! Have you tried it?

    I really like CG Happy Go Lucky. I would love to use it as a base for the grey crackle.

    I have on that butter london one right now :)

  6. The RBL one is the one I like best. How is it that I always choose the expensive ones?

    Do you know if Yellow Polka Dot Bikini (or any other of the Poolside Collection) is still available?

  8. What about Deborah Lippmann’s Yellow Brick Road? have you tried that out yet? It’s available to order already on Nordstrom’s site.

    How does RBL compare to Chanel, and if you had to choose one, which one and why? Thank you!

    which one would be best for extremely pale cool-toned skin? (like NW10)
    or should i just avoid yellow all together? Which one is YOUR favorite? and which one has the best formula overall? (sorry for all the questions!)

  11. The only bold yellow I have is from the Sephora by OPI collection, and it is way too sheer; I have to layer at least 5 times in order to get it to be semi-opaque. I am not going to try that line again; next purchase will be from Zoya.

  12. Im really loving the Chanel Mimosa, but Im full on asian and have yellow undertones, do you think it would be less flattering on my skin?

    I got a sally’s yellow nailpolish from target last summer, and it looked EXACTLY like that chanel yellow!

  14. Happy Go Lucky is on my wish list for a year now. Guess I’ll just order it now. LOL

    Btw, I love this new “5 fun somethings” category. It’s inspiring and a great way to find less pricier alternatives.

    Sally Hansens Insta-Dri is a fun yellow that’s very affordable and easy to find, even if your store availability is limited! I got mine at walmart

  16. I love all those yellows! I wish MAC had one too.
