I have used an OPI light yellow before, however I wouldn’t recommend it.  It looked like dingy nails instead.  yellow is a very tough color to pull off in nail polish, especially in pictures.  Keep that in mind and good luck in your search!

I think it would have to be very opaque, not sheer or pearly at all and your skin tone would need to be dark/tan.

I am translucently pale, most yellows make me look jaundice.

Honestly I don’t really love yello wnail polish, but if you do it you either have to go almost white pastel, or major taxicab. and definitely no shimmer

i love the idea.  I don’t have a yellow nail rec but try http://www.alllacqueredup.com.  It’s a blog all about nail polish.  She has a polish gallery and you can search her swatched by color.  Good luck!  I think it could be REALLY cute!  You just have to find the right polish.

I think just to be safe you should stick to a bright yellow to avoid any of the problems the PP have said. Maybe you could also do a cute design like polka dots or a nice flower in white to balance off the brightness?

I’ve had my nails yellow before, but I agree a bright yellow looks best. The color I used was from the Avon book and it was a very “flat” color, but once I put a clear coat on it was so pretty!

It needs to look really bright to avoid the fungal look. It’s never worked for me. It’s an easy and inexpensive trial though. Ask your friends if they think your toes look awesome or icky in the actual polish and lighting.

If you go this route… definitely spend the money and get OPI. Cheaper polishes look terrible in opaque colours. Take it with you to the nail salon if you’re getting them done, and have them use your brand new bottle (it’s an unpopular shade, IF they even have it, their bottle will likely be older and a bit separated.) If you’re doing it yourself, buff your nails with a multi sided buffer first because these solid colours look terrible if you have any bumps or ridges in your nails.  And finally, practice ahead of time to make sure you like the look.
