31DC2012: Day 3 Yellow Nails

Yellow isn't one of those colours I just have lying around. I have a grand total of two yellow nail polishes in the drawer, up one whole bottle on last year
I'm being kinda harsh, I actually really like this shade from NYC which is called Lexington Yellow. So much so that I've nearly used up the bottle and will definitely be repurchasing it. It's not an In Your Face neon yellow, it's just subtle enough to pass for a pastel and when you add some nail art it becomes positively pretty.

I wonder if Cris and Rie have a better collection of yellows than I do!



I used two coats of NYC Lexington Yellow as my base. I added some glequins on my ring finger and two coats of Ozotic 530 on the index. I topped it off with two coats of Sally Hansen Advanced Hard as Nails.

  14. Where do you buy the glequins??? I haven't seen them at my beauty supply or my craft stores either. They are really cute and dress your mani up very nicely.

  15. I only own about 3 yellows myself but my fav is also an NYC shade - Lemon Cream. It's a few shades lighter than this but it's lovely too. I never know how to 'dress up' yellow polish so this is a good idea :)

    1. I only have a few yellows, but I found that they look fabulous as tape manis or dotticures, especially with blue, green, or pink.

  16. Lovely with the nail with hexagons and the one with the glitters. It makes a lot of difference compared to 'just' polished yellow nails.

  17. I really like that shade of yellow, usually I either find yellow to be too pastel or too neon. That shade is perfect!
