China Glaze Lemon Fizz Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Up & Away Collection: Lemon Fizz

China Glaze Lemon Fizz Nail Lacquer is a spring-y daffodil yellow. It’s pale and pastel, but there’s a little warmth there to keep it from being too cool or dull. There’s even a brightness–maybe the optimism of spring captured in color–to the yellow without making it a traffic-stopping yellow (which is more Happy Go Lucky’s style). I’m not a fan of yellow on my nails, but this is a yellow I could feel comfortable wearing.

Like some of the paler shades from this launch, application proved trickier than usual, but I found one thin coat (which may or may not have been streaky) followed by a thicker second coat worked well to given an even, creamy finish. I had the mentality of, “Fine, be streaky on the first coat… but I’m covering all that up later.” I would really suggest just playing around with different applications, coat amounts, thickness, etc. (you may even have to test out different base/top coat combinations), but the results are certainly worth a few botched attempts!

  1. This is a beautiful color but I never dared to wear a yellow nail polish. I know it’s vibrant and colorful but yellow is just not my color. :)

    This reminds me of banana-flavoured baby food :/
    I can just tell that if I applied this, I’d be taking it off moments later.

  3. Lorna

    I like this yellow, it is very mellow and soft looking. I am loving the pastels right now! I will definitely be picking this color up! I think I might start out with it on my toes…I tend to do “bolder/less common” colors on my toes!
