So this post has been a small disaster which is pretty much my fault for leaving it till the last minute despite planning to do this with Emma at the beginning of the week. Just to explain what is going on: once a week Emma (from Imagination In Colour) and I will be doing twin posts inspired by our series theme which to start with is the rainbow.
This week is YELLOW! I actually only have four yellows in my stash so I thought I would do a quick comparison post today.
Two of these are pretty similar and the other two are pretty different. So let’s get going.
Winner for best application goes to China Glaze Happy Go Lucky which took two very easy coats and can be seen here on my pointer. Lovely creme to work with only downside is the China Glaze brush is not my favourite but oh well, application was beautiful. I picked this up on NPD – it’s quite an old one now coming from the Up and Away collection but well worth getting if you can. It is about a shade darker than the OPI.
OPI I Just Can’t Cope-Cobana is from the Brazil collection which was released in early February – bloggers have been raving about this formula and it is pretty good. I used three coats for total coverage but the formula isn’t streaky or draggy so thumbs up. Lovely sunshine yellow.
The worst formula was China Glaze Electric Pineapple (ring finger) which needed four coats for total coverage and doesn’t self level very well and just makes you work hard. It is a lovely lemon and lime kind of colour. I got this instead of OPI Fiercely Fiona as it was just too expensive and HTF.
Finally on my pinkie is the cheapest polish at just £2.99 a bottle it’s H&M Lemon Tree which is an egg yolk/mustard leaning yellow and my first ever yellow polish. It’s kind of a crelly and took three coats to build up – my bottle is pretty used up so it’s a little bit gloopy now but on the whole I think H&M do a great job for their price bracket and they offer A LOT of choice and also dupes for harder to get name brand polishes. I popped in today and there is a creamy light yellow polish which I considered picking up but I remembered that I had ordered waayyy too many OPI and other polishes lately.
What’s your go to yellow? Do you wear yellow? I was reminded today what an unusual colour it is but I can’t wait to wear mine this spring.
Have a good week lovelies!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little comparison.
