Zoya had a promotion a few months back where you could get a free polish or something, I dunno, but in any case I placed a huge order an got a ton of pinks and one very different color that I normally never choose, a yellow. A yellow polish isn’t for everyone. We actually debated it at work whether it could look nice at all. There was a split in decision with some saying it never looks good, while others thought it looked “nice” and sunny.
I ultimately think it depends on skin tone because it can make you look sickly if it brings out reddish undertones in your skin. But back to the swatches. The Yellow Polish I purchased was called “creamy” and I decided to top it with Essie’s “As Gold AS It Gets“.
The color is described on the Zoya website as:
” A bright but soft banana peel shade of yellow”
The color was easy to apply but did take 3 coats to be completely opaque for my taste. I got scared when I saw how bright it was and wasn’t sure how it would look in the office so I tried to tone it down with gold flecks (using the Essie polish).
The Essie Polish is from one of their top coats collections that I have almost all. As Gold As It Gets is a clear coat with micro gold glitter and small foil flecks bringing a pretty gold sheen to any color you wear underneath. I’d like to try it with a candy apple red. Perhaps on the toes 🙂
What do you think? Is yellow polish an acceptable color you would wear? Or do you think yellow polish should be banned entirely? I’m still on the fence about yellow because I love bright yellows and oranges but they are difficult for me to wear. Is there one in your arsenal that I need to know about?

Zoya Polishes can be purchased online directly from their site ( and many many others) for the mere price of $8.00. If you are afraid the color you want to purchase wont look good on you, you can purchase a “spoon” for fifty cents and they will send you a mini swatch bead of color on the equivalent of a Baskin Robbins tester ice cream scoop. Just enough color to get to the idea, and no regrets if the color looks hideous.
So what do you think? Is yellow your color?
