Cult Nails You're My Dandy Lion Nail Lacquer
Cult Nails You’re My Dandy Lion Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails You’re My Dandy Lion Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft, but bright, yellow with a perfect finish.” It’s a buttery, warm yellow with a creamy finish–and very true that it’s bright yet not neon and there is a softness to the color as a result. There is a subtle pearl shimmer to it, but it’s nearly impossible to see. NARS 15 Minutes is lighter. NARS Amchoor is darker, brighter. MAC Al Fredo is darker and sheer. Deborah Lippmann Yellow Brick Road is also a bit darker and sheer. Deborah Lippmann Yellow Fever is a bit darker and warmer.

The formula of this was impressive; it was not perfect, but it was nearly so, and for a yellow cream, both noteworthy and much-welcomed. The initial coat was a little streaky, but the second coat covered the streakiness entirely and left behind a beautiful, smooth, and even result. It’s fully opaque after two coats, and the texture wasn’t too thick or too thin–just right. The polish flowed well across the nail without bubbling or pooling along the edges. It dried to a naturally shiny finish as well, so you could skip the top coat. I usually get a full seven days of wear out of Cult Nails’ formula with very minor tip wear but no chipping.

It's a good polish, period, and for a yellow, it's one of the best I've come across. The initial coat is somewhat streaky, but a second coat covers and smooths out the color entirely!

  4. I love bright yellow nail polish!

  5. I wish yellow polish looked good on me, but I am far too pale for it! Such a pretty color.
