Mani Monday – Battle of the Yellows

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.

Mani Monday – Obsessed

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.

What color are you wearing right now?

Mani Monday – Pretty In Pink

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.

Nails of The Week – Green Thumb

 

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.

Mani Monday – Break The Ice (Wet n Wild)

 

Hey guys! for this week, I decided to try a nail polish I’ve never done before. It’s Break The Ice by Wet n wild. My sister received a mini wet n wild collection a while back and she gave some polishes to me.


Here is the little bottle it came with. It’s so cute. I thought that the brush was not going to be workable but I was wrong. It was more or less the same thickness as other brands, but it was not wide like their normal-sized megalast polishes.


I love this color, but one thing I did not love was the application. The nail polish was streaky, I had to apply 4 (!) coats to achieve opacity. Here is how it looks like with the top coat on.

I would have loved it more if the polish was thicker and more opaque.

I think I’m going to play with some nail stickers for next week’s Mani Monday!
