My NOTD 4/30

Nails: yellow

I've had this Taxi Yellow Creme color for a while. I felt it was not as visible as I'd liked. I learned a long while back that doing one coat of white before using colors like yellow or even orange helps them appear better. So I took the time today to try something different than my usual neutrals.

It took a while to dry because I still used two coats of yellow over the white plus a clear base and top coat.

But I like the yellow as a spring color. :-)

Looks good on you.  I can't wear yellow at all.  Yep, undies help with some colors.

Actually, I like that yellow, but I probably would wear it as a accent. I like the black and white polka dots on yellow.

Thanks! I learned about the white a few years ago, just never tried it. I'm glad it actually works. :-)

Thanks! I wasn't sure how it would turn out cause I'm fair skinned. But I feel it adds a little complexion kind of lol.
