Discover the Best Yellow Acrylic Nails – Kara’s Top Pick of 3 Yellow Acrylic Nail Polishes!

Let the Sunshine in

Yellow is sunshine, daffodils and laughing children. Fun loving and energetic, it traditionally symbolizes joy, happiness, and positivity and is the brightest, most eye catching on the visible spectrum wheel. A primary color – meaning it cannot be made by mixing other pigments, its complementary shade is purple and the two together make a dramatically bold statement. 

The color yellow is believed to have a positive effect on the left hemisphere of our brains, enhancing perception and encouraging deep thinking and concentration, while the person who picks yellow as a favorite, tends to be talkative, enthusiastic and fun to be around. 

Yellow nail polish can run from a rich, but pale cream through to a deep sunshine yellow, and any shade looks glorious with a sleek, glossy finish. Reminding me of childhood summers, I love yellow nails, and here are my favorite three. 

 

1) ZOYA Nail Polish – Darcy

What Makes it Great

Zoya have created a bold yellow, with slight mustard undertones. It’s sunny, bright and dazzling and you can’t help but smile with this color on your nails. Evoking days spent relaxing on the beach, or lazing with friends, it’ll brighten any occasion, even in the dreariest weather. Focusing on healthy nails, Zoya’s range of polishes are vegan and free from the most harmful chemicals, such as Formaldehyde and Parabens. My nails did feel in better condition when I, feeling sad, removed this zingy yellow after two weeks chip free. 

Where it Could be Improved

It did require a couple of applications to achieve the finish I was looking for.

The Final Verdict

If you’re looking for a polish that brings back happy memories in everyone that sees it, lasts for a long time and is gloriously bright, pick Zoya’s Darcy.

2) China Glaze Nail Polish – Happy Go Lucky

What Makes it Great

Happy Go Lucky is a soft light golden color, similar to butter or creamy rich custard, lending your nails a pure, unadulterated yellow tone. With no undertones of green, which can beset many yellows, this is untouched by other pigments, remaining true to itself. It stayed chip free and looking glorious as a gloss manicure for well over two weeks. 

Where it Could be Improved

This polish required a gentle mix – rolled between the palms, not shaken, remember?

3) Cirque Colors Nail Polish – Urbanized

What Makes it Great

Like all of Cirque Colors polishes, this is non-toxic, vegan & cruelty-free and doesn’t include toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin or dibutyl phthalate (DBP).  The shade of ripe corn fields awaiting the harvest, this yellow is bold and bright, but with softer undertones, reminiscent of a duckling’s down. It remained damage free for nearly three whole weeks.

Where it Could be Improved

It did require two coats of polish to give a smooth, streak-free finish.

The Final Verdict

Suitable for any occasion, day or night, from the office to an elegant black tie affair, this sophisticated yellow is a great choice.
