GOT Some Ruffly Yellows
You know you're a polish hoarder when...
...there is a yellow challenge, and, even though you rarely wear yellow polish, you still have to narrow down what you want, and even so, still have 4 to use for the challenge. Sigh.
The first yellow is your typical horrible yellow formula - streaky, patchy, sheer. I suppose I keep Ulta Cream Of The Crop because it does remind me of fresh white corn.
I hear that this next yellow's formula is changing or that it's being discontinued? Too bad, because Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow is actually a great little sunshine yellow. I applied it here with a dotting tool to get that ruffly effect.
I am making a real mess with this mani!
Bondi Brick Road is a goldenrod yellow. I don't know if you can get Bondi anymore. There was some drama about this subscription service, and I know the money I had invested into the subscription for future boxes was returned to me. Plenty of other yellows to be found.
This ruffled mani is rounded out with Nails inc Hampstead Road, a 'trend shade'. I suspect that 'trend' here means 'so ugly it's kinda cute' in the way that 'cozy' means 'small' in Real Estate ads. I can't imagine ever wanting to paint my nails mustard yellow, but I kinda like it as the finishing color in this ruffle.
For someone who isn't that big into yellow polishes (except for Superhero nail art, lol) I actually really liked this!

Have you tried a color of makeup or polish that you thought you'd hate, but ended up liking it on you?
