Happy Monday morning!
I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Mine was ok, although it rained like cats and dogs ALL day long Sunday. I can’t wait for the rainy season to just end already!
On that note, because the weather has been fantastic while I am at work and horrible on weekends, I have not been able to swatch anything lately. So this week I am going to focus on bringing you some more of my “Top 5” (or 10 as the case may be) posts. I think you like these, so I hope you stick around and check them out!
Today’s top 5 is yellow, and let me tell you I had a hard time with this one! For once it was hard for me to find 5 yellows I could even say I really liked! Normally I have like 20 polishes and can’t narrow them down for these posts, but this was the opposite.
Me and yellow don’t get along all that great since I have a lot of yellow in my skin. The best yellows for me are cool and usually pastel, which is why some of these are very similar.
In no particular order, here are my top 5 fav yellows.
Of the 5 listed here I think this is probably my favorite one. It’s cool and wasn’t too much of a bear to apply.
Wayward is the only one here with a slightly warmer feel, but not so warm that it didn’t work for me. I have tried some yellows and wanted to BARF they looked so horrid! I have to say that I haven’t tried Illamasqua’s new pastel yellow yet and have a feeling once I do, it will wind up being one of my favs.The application on the two I did try for that collection were like buttah!
Lemon Fizz is practically the same color as Orly’s Lemonade, which is why it’s also on here. 🙂 I think this was a little streakier than Lemonade on me, but it’s nice.
Ah ha, we have one that isn’t creme, hallelujah! I couldn’t forget about Volt Of Light, this one is so totally amazing. I am not even much of a neon person, and can’t say that I wear them much. But this one is hands down one of my fav neons ever, and from what I remember, the application was extremely even. I love the blue shimmer flash also!
IM Beauty is a very pale lemon yellow that I almost forgot about. I was going through my stash and saw this after a 2nd go-round. I definitely had issues with applying it, it was super sheer and streaky. I think after 3 or 4 coats I got it fairly even.
Sorry for the crappy pic, this is old. In fact I find it kind of hilarious; I have been hearing people complain here and there that my pictures now suck on my site compared to what they used to be. Either those people just like to make negative comments just to hear themselves talk or their eyesight has drastically gone downhill, because my pics FAR surpass what they used to look like! I mean hello, compare this one to Orly Lemonade, doesn’t take a genuis to see the quality improvement!
Ok folks I wanna hear, what are your favorite yellows? Is yellow a color that works well or not so much with your skin tone? I feel it’s one of the hardest colors to pull off!
