Lemon yellow nails. Not the obvious choice, I will admit, but my manicure received a lot of attention this week! This was my first time ever wearing yellow and I was so pleased with the results. Really, yellow is not much different from gold. If you’ve rocked warm metallics in the past, then I’d like to nominate this sunny shade to brighten up your week!
Zoya Pippa looked more lemonade-pastel on the website, but I was pleased to see it was brighter than I'd been expecting! I wore two coats.
And if my word isn’t enough, then check out these pics for proof that yellow is far from mellow. In fact, it’s MAGIC.
First of all, one of my nail polish idols, Pshiiit, has photographed her nails in yellow and they look magnifique.
There's this model wearing yellow polish with what is some of the most unintentional but awesome HG Capitol-style makeup I've ever seen.
Bebe's ad campaign for Spring 2012 featured this redhead (love that hair!) wearing lemony nails.
The ethereal and fashionable Natalie Portman was way ahead of her time when she made (gossip mag) headlines for wearing yellow on her nails. This was years ago, in the Dark Ages, when wearing anything other than a lipstick shade on your nails was considered by most to be CrAzY.
Pop star Katie Perry, known for her wild manicures, has taken a spin with yellow, of course.
And my blessed lady, Mother of All Things Music and Dance, beat everyone to the punch and got into the groove with yellow back in the 80s.
In other news, a friend at work let me check out a book she got at a yard sale. OPI “I’m Not Really A Waitress.” It’s a look back at their early ad campaigns and best-selling colors. I’ll be posting more on that later.
P.S. If you love Sam Edelman shoes like I do (it’s just not summer until I buy a pair of his gladiator sandals or strappy heels), check it out! I stopped by Nordstrom in the Grove here in Los Angeles on a whim, and there he was, signing autographs — and shoes!
Me and Sam, who was incredibly friendly! Makes me proud to wear his shoes!
A stroke of good luck to trot around with! Ignore the grow out on my thumb. It's been a long week for this mani!
