NYC Taxi Yellow Creme

I actually bought this polish last weekend and meant to try it out the second I got home but I got distracted. You see, I am on a quest for a yellow that will work for me. I spotted this at Target and for .94 cents I was like, well why not? Although its soft yellow creme, when I picked it I could see faint golden shimmer running through it. Plus it wasn't as loud and in your face as the Zoya Creamy I'd tried before. Well, it sat on my desk the whole week, untried. Maybe subconsciously I knew it would be a pain in the butt to apply and I wasn't up to the challenge?

Here is the polish, this is three coats + no topcoat. It was sheer and streaky. I probably could have done 4 coats, but I thought that might have looked chalky on my hands.

Last weekend, before we went to the movies, I stopped at my favorite small town drugstore to see if they had some polishes I was interested in. I picked up another LA Colors nail art polish in mint green. I'm so glad I found a actual store to buy these at,they are great for nail art. If you were like me and you have no idea where to buy or haven't seen these in a store near you, you can order them online and get a pretty good deal. The best deal I saw was 6 for 11.95.

Here's my "lemon-lime" nail art:

Not my best work, but I like the colors together. I used Zoya Armor topcoat here. To my surprise this dried faster and glossier than I remember, I might have to use that topcoat more often.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Yellows can be tricky, that's for sure! But it looks nice on you and I like your artwork. Enjoy the weekend :)

  2. I haven't found just the right shade of yellow for me either so I'll keep searchin'. lol Good job on the art work but I'm not sure I like this color on you.

  3. Nice design! I haven't tried any of my yellow polishes yet. I see that there are so many application problems that I don't use them.

  4. I am lovin' this yellow!!

  5. Mary: Yellows ARE tricky, thanks for the compliments about my artwork

    Denny: I know, I feel the same way about this yellow, dont know if Im lking this one either

    Lucy: They look so pretty in the bottle but I know they are going to be trouble
