To mark the end of Summer I wanted to share a gorgeous summery yellow nail color that I've been in love with lately. It's another polish from the XL Nail Gel line (which I previously talked about here) and I was hoping it would be a great, happy color while being as long-lasting as my previous experience with the line. Let's check it out below!
Yellow polish has notoriety for being a difficult formula but Covergirl's Haughty Lemon is one of the best I've tried. Oftentimes flat creams will end up goopy and streaky, but there is a subtle satin shimmer to this that you can see in the bottle but not on the nails. This seems to give the polish grip without sacrificing the solid finish.
Here I used a base of OPI Nail Envy, 3 coats of Covergirl Haughty Lemon, and topped it with Seche Vite Top Coat. The result was a nice, solid yellow that was just as long-lasting as Plumped-Up Plum.
Yellow is one of those colors I used to always be afraid of because I have strong yellow undertones in my skin but it's surprisingly a very flattering color on the nails and it works as a great pop of color on top of almost anything. Paired with navy blue or white, it gets a nautical edge. With green it gets a cheery outdoor vibe. For being so bright it's actually very easy to pull off and this is one of the best I've tried. Definitely a high recommendation.
Readers, have you tried yellow polish? Are there any colors you tend to be afraid to try? Let me know in the comments!
