Over the past couple of months, I have been obsessed with yellow nails. What’s not to like? They brighten your outfit and they can give you that boost that you need. One of the things that I did not realize going into shopping for yellow nail polishes was how hard it was to find a cute yellow with a great formula. Today I am comparing two yellows: Yolo Yellow by Sinful Colors and Mellow Yellow by Sally Hansen.
First one up is Yolo Yellow by Sinful Colors. Spoiler Alert: This is the big winner, it’s a knockout. First win: the color- it’s super bright and yellow, it’s a true bright yellow. Second win: I only needed two coats to complete this manicure, and it actually dried. Third win: Although it’s only a couple of cents of difference, this one is cheaper than the Sally Hansen nail polish.
There were so many problems with this nail polish I don’t know where to start. The nail polish color itself is not a true bright yellow, it’s more like a nacho cheese yellow. I’m not returning the nail polish but I think that this polish will be best used as a nail art color and not a full nail color. This color was so sheer that I needed 3+ coats for this to work, and because of that, the nails did not fully want to dry. It was a disaster.
In short: If you’re looking for a yellow, inexpensive nail polish, get Yolo Yellow by Sinful Colors.
Hello! For this week, I decided to use a “fall color” and went with Obsessed by Formula X. From my understanding, this was once sold at Sephora but not anymore, you can still find it on Amazon if you really like it.
I used two coats and my wet n wild top coat.

Hello, this week I have the perfect pink for me. And it was less than $2! This color is called “Little Miss Paris” by Color Club. I found this nail polish at Marshall’s for under $2 and it makes me wonder why I’ve never bought these before.
I used three coats for this nail polish, and then I used my Wet n Wild top coat. I really love these nails, they make me feel dainty. I think I’ve found the perfect pink.
This week I went green!! Sally Hansen’s Green Thumb is one of my favorite nail polishes of all time. I love it! I’v never had a green nail polish before and this one is perfect, it’s super opaque. I love the formula and the shade. For my accent nail, I used a an old gold polish from e.l.f.
I used 3 coats and top coat to achieve this look.
Let’s get back into the swing of this – it’s time for a Mani Monday!!
This week, I decided to recover from that awful manicure and go with a nice coral/orange color – perfect for summer.
This is Hazard by Sinful Colors. I believe that as far as inexpensive nail polishes go, Sinful Colors might be the best.
Although this color was a bit streaky – I had to use 3 coats on some of my nails, my nails were not goopy or sticky, like I felt with Mellow Yellow from Sally Hansen.
I topped the nail polish with my favorite top coat – the wet n wild wildshine Clear Nail Protector
