Hello lovely ladies 🙂 I’ve got another Nella Milano polish to show you today! If you remember last week I showed you Nella Milano Violet, today I have a lovely yellow for you. Nella Milano by MoYou Nails is a new brand of nail polish made in Italy. I know yellow isn’t strictly a winter colour but personally I can get tired of the same old dark nails all winter long. Besides, soon it will be the new year, time to pick up pastels and brights ready for spring! 🙂
Yellow is always hard to get right in a polish. For a start there’s the streaky factor – I think I’ve used two yellows ever that haven’t been streaky – and then there’s the skin-clashing factor. It’s hard to find the perfect tone of yellow for your own skin tone, but I think this one just *might*! be one that suits anyone! **please bear in mind that with colours like this my camera always picks up red tones when they aren’t particularly prominent, even for me the lobster-ness is profuse in these pics!**
I honestly really like this tone of yellow on my nails. In the bottle I wasn’t keen but I feel like it’s the first yellow I could happily wear without gloves to hide my clashing skin from the world! It makes me think of omelettes, the yolk in fried eggs sunny-side-down, scrambled eggs, etc. 🙂 I was pleasantly surprised by how it looked on my nails.
To be totally frank, this polish will not give you adequate coverage at one coat, as claimed on the bottle. In fact the photos show 3 coats – at two coats the polish is a little streaky, so I added a third to even everything out. I personally don’t mind needing 2-3 coats, although I know some people do. It does dry quickly, and to a very shiny finish, so you won’t need topcoat unless you want it to last a while 🙂
I’m really pleased with this, I feel like I’ll probably wear it a lot come springtime!
You can buy Nella Milano Sunny Yellow from the MoYou Nails website, where its RRP is £7.99 but at the time of writing it is on sale at £5.49, or you can buy three for £13.50!
What do you think of yellows? I know they aren’t for everyone but I’m slowly becoming a fan (partly because Vod on Fresh Meat wears it a lot!)
