NYC Taxi Yellow Creme

I love yellow.  It's so cheerful and fun.  Unfortunately, with my fair skin tone, I normally shy away from wearing anything even remotely yellow.  That's why I've waffled back and forth over buying a yellow polish.  I finally decided to take the plunge with this .94 cent NYC polish named Taxi Yellow Creme.  And I'm pretty much in love with Taxi Yellow Creme.  While the application wasn't great - the polish was streaky and even with three coats is not totally opaque - the color is spot on.  I think a base coat would really benefit the application of this polish.

Taxi Yellow Creme is a light canary yellow - possibly a lemon meringue - with almost indiscernible tiny specks of glitter (I didn't even notice the glitter until I held the bottle up to light).  I really like this, and at .94 cents, it's a must-have.



I photographed Taxi Yellow Creme with a Fiesta Sunflower plate as my background.

Love that shade of yellow. They are always such a pain to try to get even and opaque. Does look pretty on you and you can't beat the price.

I've waned to have this one for so long but I was never able to get it. It was sold out everywhere in New York when I was living there and they don't sell NYC in Finland :( Looks great on you

Really?? I had no idea it was so popular! Hopefully next time you're in the states you'll have able to pick up a bottle!

Thank you!!
