5 Yellow Nail Polishes for Summer

Posted on: May 8, 2012

Summer will be here before we know it, and what color is more sunny than yellow? I know that yellow polish isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I can’t help but be drawn to this shade, especially when temperatures rise. In no particular order, here are 5 yellow nail polishes that are simply perfect for summer.

1. Zoya “Pippa”

Love, love, LOVE this lemon yellow cream. It’s sunny, bright and looks amazing against a tan (faux tan, ladies – skin cancer isn’t hot.) It isn’t a neon, but it’s still just as lovely and covers well in two coats.

($8, Zoya)

2. China Glaze “Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”

This was from their Poolside collection a couple of years ago, but it’s still available if you wanted to get your hands on it. This yellow polish from China Glaze is THE bright, in-your-face neon color that a lot of women love and will definitely be very eye catching this season.

($7, Ulta)

3. Deborah Lippmann Nail Color “Yellow Brick Road”

This yellow polish has a jelly finish, so be prepared to swipe several coats on nails if you’re looking for opaque coverage. This “mellow yellow” was designed to be flattering on all skin tones, so if you don’t think you look good in yellow give this one a try.

4. NARS Thakoon for NARS “Amchoor”

All of the colors from the NARS collaboration with fashion designer Thakoon are gorgeous, but Amchoor is the perfect yellow polish to adorn tips and toes this summer. This vibrant yellow is imbued with UV protection, so color stays bright and true for as long as you wear it.

($18, Sephora)

5. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color “Mellow Yellow”

If vibrant yellow isn’t for you, Sally Hansen’s “Mellow Yellow” is the perfect compromise. This soft, muted yellow hue looks lovely on fair skin and is a great shade for women who shy away from bright colors.
