Yellow Nail Polish Comparisons

Yellow Nail Polish Swatch Comparisons - Yellow Fever, Phosphor, Solar Power

The summer is heating up and what better way to start off with some bright sunshiney colors.  Here's just a few yellow nail polish comparisons.  Although, yellow may not suit everyone, it's an fun color to sport around this season.

China Glaze, Solar Power ($3.99) - is a taxi cab color with gold shimmer.  This color is a great alternative to Rescue Beauty Lounge's, Yellow fever.  Espically, those looking for a friendlier budget.

Rescue Beauty Lounge, Yellow Fever ($18) - is a vibrant yellow shade with subtle shimmer.  Everything is perfect about this yellow.  The amount of shimmer is hardly recognizable giving the appeal of a cream texture.  But yet, satisfying our deeper shimmer needs.  Yellow Fever - is a brighter, virbant yellow compared to Solar Power - more of a toned down yellow with noticeable golden shimmer.

MAC, Phosphor ($10) - is a golden yellow frost which, was introduced in the Neo, Sci, Fi collection.  It's very unique and much different from Yellow Fever and Solar Power - leaning more towards a pretty golden color.

Check out the photo swatches below.

Solar Power may not be as bright and vibrant as Yellow Fever but, is a great alternative for $3.99.

Yellow shades are on the rise big time this summer.  Chanel will be releasing a yellow color in the robertson blvd collection set to launch online in july which, I can't wait for.  Hope everyone's having  fabulous Sunday.

great swatches! I've been torturing myself over whether or not to buy RBL yellow fever. I think now I'll *have* to get it. : )

That's a great swatch. Really let me know which yellow polish to get. If I can, I'm going to get the China Glaze. Why spend $18 on a trend I might not be rocking next summer?

Hi Rakisha, I would go with China Glaze or Essie. Essie has a nice yellow called shorty pants that I haven't posted yet. I have Essie on my toes today and they look fab. It's really hard justifying $18 for a polish espically in yellow. :)

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
