Yellow Nails Anyone!??

So today I picked up 17 Last Fix Nail Polish from Boots in shade "Sherbet Lemon". It looked stunning in the bottle and well, I simply love sherbet lemons!!

I was pretty excited to try this too as it was a pastelly yellow and given I seem to be obsessed with pastel anything at the moment (yes I am talking eyes, lips, nails, clothes!) I thought it would be very pretty.

Now I am not so sure, but I think that is down to the polish more than the colour as such!

I am really not sure about this. I need to see it in natural light I think. It jus seems a bit too yellow at the moment rather than pastelly. But seriously talk about TERRIBLE brush. The bristles are a pain! It just streaks upon contact! Not good. Even after 2 -3 coats it is still streaky. Well I am not putting any more on or my nails won't dry for the rest of my life!
I seriously don't get it though because I already have nail varnishes in this range which are fine!!!!
What are your thoughts on the colour ladies???

It's a nice shade but won't go well with all colors in terms of wardrobe.
...and everything girly under the sun!

Oh it looks like such a pretty shade, I was umming and ahhing over it today earlier on in Boots but decided not tog et it - Probably a good idea if you're saying the brush makes it streak, total pet hate!

Thanks for posting!

Oh this is an very interesting color!
Must check if i can find here one that is similar to your one.

Btw. thanks for you comment on my blog. I got the 88 eyeshadow palette from - price was about 2 dollar. So quite cheap and these are the same one you get from companies like e.g. coastal scents. But they sell it for more, only because they put their lable on these palettes. But check out, with shipping you pay about 10 dollar :)

I have this and I love it! It does take some getting used to though. I use Seche Vite as it takes ages to dry, and I think it needs a glossy top coat over it. x

For some reason I've been seeing yellow all over the place now...I like how the colour looks on you but I'm kind of afraid to try it on myself. LOL.
