Bananas

I apologize for the lack of pics on this one... Initially I wasn't too thrilled with how this polish turned out, but it's growing on me the longer I wear it! If you've ever hunted for the perfect yellow... I'm sure you understand my plight!


Revlon Crystal Glow, Sinful Colors Unicorn
 

So I don't have pics of either of these polishes on their own, and this is the only pic I took, because I didn't really like how this turned out at first. Yellows are known to be streaky little buggers, and Unicorn by Sinful Colors is no exception. I really wanted to wear yellow polish, so I originally tried Designated Driver by Spoiled. I remember loving that shade when I bought it, but it was doing absolutely nothing for me this time around. So I reached for Unicorn by Sinful Colors.

Unicorn is a chalky pastel yellow color. Very pastel, chalky, and cool-toned. It did absolutely nothing for my nails or skin tone.

Recently I picked up Revlon Crystal Glow, a yellow jelly that's super sheer. It has a warmer vibe to it... somewhere between a banana peel and a really ripe pineapple. It added a lot of warmth to Unicorn, creating the shade above. It also evened out some of the streaks, but obviously not all of them.

Polished Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats SinfulColors Unicorn
1 Coat Revlon Crystal Glow
1 Coat Seche Vite

Unicorn definitely wasn't as streaky as some polishes I've tried, but I can still see noticeable streaks on my nails where I wouldn't with other shades. And that bugs me. I know there are a bunch of other yellows out there, and I just need to find one with a little more oomph. The color might be growing on me, but the search for my perfect yellow is faaaaaaar from over. :)

What's your favorite yellow polish?
