More Yellows!

As I promised, here are a few more yellow nail polishes! : D

NYX Carnation

Carnation is a beautiful pastel yellow creme, however it has all the application issues of a typical yellow nail polish. The polish is awfully runny and streaky, making it very difficult to apply. I had to use five coats in the pictures. (Will definitely use a ridgefiller or layer it over white next time.) Other than its unpleasant formula, it's a very pretty colour don't you think? :D So soft and buttery! <3

Finger Paints Yellow Bikini

Yellow Bikini was also a nightmare to apply, it had the same application issues as Carnation but maybe a tad bit better. : ) It's a soft banana yellow with a sheen of golden shimmer in it. The shimmer makes the polish almost glow on the nails. Very unique indeed! : )

I like this colour a lot more than I thought I would originally. It's the happy face yellow :D, so bright and cheerful! I recently got this at my local Trade Secret for 60% off. The formula on this one is way better than expected, it is still somewhat streaky but was good to go in three coats! :D

So what do you ladies think of these?
Do you like your yellows pastel or bright? Creme or shimmer?
If you're still on the quest to find the perfect yellow for this summer, please continue to stay tuned as I will have a few more swatches coming up next week! : D

  2. I love the FP and the NYX ones! The 'buttery' ones! I like a wee bit of shimmer in my yellows, but just a touch.

  3. I love all three. They are all different from each other. Your nails are just beautiful. Can't wait to see more yellows.

  4. I liked all three yellows but, I really loved the Finger Paints Nail Color. I only have a few items from FP in my collection. The stores in my area never have them in stock and when they do it only 4-5 colors.

  5. Kae- It's so buttery, it looks good enough to eat! Haha! :D Kinda looks like those easter m&m's! :)

    Mary- I love the buttery ones too! :D Shimmer really adds a special touch to the polish.

    Lucy- Thank you! I will try to swatch the other ones ASAP! :D Hope the sun will be out next week!

    Princess- The Finger Paints one is really unique with the glow-y shimmer! I don't have a lot of FPs in my collection either. This is one of the three that I own. None of my local stores carry the brand, the closest one is 35 minutes away. :(

  10. I prefer pastel yellow, I'm not a fan of bright yellows which sometimes remind of cabs or even canaries lol >.<
