Wheel X: Yellow Cremes (Mostly)

Nail wheel

(all 3 coats unless otherwise noted)

1. Ulta 3 Spring Blossom
2. Joe Fresh Butter
3. Rescue Beauty Lounge Square Pants
4. OPI Banana Bandanna [this one has a slight shimmer]
5. Essence Naughty But Nice
6. China Glaze Lemon Fizz
7. Orly Lemonade
8. Maybelline Express Finish Banana Bamba [another subtle shimmer here]
9. Sally Hansen Insta Dri Expresso Yellow (2 coats)
10. Ulta El Sol
11. OPI Need Sunglasses
12. Barry M Yellow
13. Wet 'n' Wild Lemon Drops
14. Revlon Street Wear Loud
15. Wet 'n' Wild Cancun
16. Essence Sundancer
17. OPI The "It" Color
18. L.A. Colors Shock (4 coats) [somehow fooled me into thinking it was darker than it is]
19. Revlon Street Wear Burnt
20. Barielle Aura Angora [which oddly seems darker now than when I swatched it; still not flattering to me, though]

As typical for Nail Wheel Wednesday, I see plenty of opportunity for destashing here. 1 and 2 are similar enough to not need both; it's the same story with 5 through 7. Keeping two or three of the 9 through 18 range would probably still leave me with a lifetime supply of those shades as seldom as I wear yellow. Number 20 has to go because it looks bad on me, but 19 can stay because a) I'm sentimental about Street Wear and b) the color is slightly more flattering than 20 so I might actually wear it as a full mani sometime.

  1. OPI Fiercely Fiona. How I long to find a yellow that applies easily. Maybe FF is it so I should get on with it!

  2. I need to find Lemon Fizz - I've been craving a pastel yellow creme.

  3. Thanks for following my blog.

    I'm following yours back and let me say, it's a great blog ! I love your color wheels, great idea !

    Take care

  4. I didn't know that many yellows exits! O_o

  5. Gorgeous yellows! :) I only have one pastel yellow and I don't think I give it enough love. I think it's because in the bottle it looks a bit weird, but on your wheel they all look lovely! :D

  6. I like the look of Lemon Fizz. Yellow looks really bad on me normally but I'm thinking a pastel yellow would look better.

  7. I like the lightest ones (1-7), too bad colours like these tend to be streaky :( And I have to admit I wouldn't wear barielle either, it's just so ugly ;)

  8. Very cool site! I was unaware you had a blog until now! Following you back! :)


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :) I'm moderating most comments now due to the spate of spammers who claim to be looking for sexy times.
